    "I have nothing but great things to say about La Paloma! Under the leadership of Principal McGough, this school has reached full potential. Teachers are upbeat and positive, the students are happy and the parents are involved. Both of my children participate in various after school enrichment programs that are offered for free, such as garden club and Mandarin. My oldest is in the GATE program and has had science club, art classes, reading club, and math club after school, plus other programs have been offered that we have chosen not to participate in. In class, my eldest is challenged with special research projects and power point presentations. My youngest, a 1st-grader, has tons of parent help in his classroom, helping test students on sight words and math skills. My youngest is performing above grade level now. Both kids have made lots of friends at school. La Paloma is a wonderful school to send your kids to!"

    "My child is in his second year at La Paloma and we are very pleased with our experience there. He is in the dual immersion program, which is one of the reasons we chose La Paloma. It is an amazing program and challenges our child much more than english-only classes would have. The staff is wonderful and the principal is a very friendly and community oriented. He has lead the school in great improvements over the last year."

    "A great deal of emphasis is but on bilingual education at La Paloma. Class size is enormous. My child's teacher has been excellent and gone above and beyond but most of the teachers don't put in as much effort--the teacher's union regulates everything in the favor of teachers not students. The administration is easy to work with and knows educational law to include special education law. Classroom behavior at this school is well maintained. Special education classes often don't push kids to meet standards."

    "The teachers at La Paloma are nice, friendly, well trained, and are working hard to meet the demands of a high ESL student body, large classroom size amidst budget cuts. The principal and vice-principal are always available for questions. I appreciate the campus being clean and safe. I can see that the school is well ran, and morale is high. Since La Paloma is an older school, it does not come across as impressive as a newer school, and some parents are too quick to make judgement. I am a parent volunteer here and I wish that every parent would spend some time here to see for themselves. Thank you Teachers for all your hard work!"

    "This school is sad. The teachers my child had were nice but they had to spend much of their time coping with ESL students. The prinicapl directed all of her comments to ESL parents on back to school night. She had no interest in the other student body. The school is about 75% non-English speaking."
