This school is below average. They are focused on English and math, primarily because there are a TON of English as a second language learners. They try and tout that they are a science school, but other than one science night that's all they do. The school has been in program improvement for over FIVE YEARS!!! The PTA is lackluster and the kids are "at" grade level with very few that are "above". Parent involvement is minimal and that's because this is a very low income area of Paso Robles. Unless my child HAD to attend this school, I would avoid at all costs. Ms. Stoner is okay and the teachers are a revolving door of pink slips. Who knows who will be the latest tragedy this year. The school is heavy on the furlough days and they are just hoping to not be the lowest in test scores. Paso Robles isn't the best area to educate a child, in general, but Pifer is one of the worst choices.
