    "So saddened by the events that took place in my daughter's kindergarten class this year. We choiced into this school because we had heard good things and we wanted our daughter to receive a bilingual education. The issues started day one when the class she was in originally was changed and the teacher had no knowledge of our daughter being in her class. As the year progressed the problems increased. There was limited supervision at lunch, children were left on the playground without teacher supervision as the teacher was late, my daughter had snacks and parts of her lunch stolen, She was spit on and things were stolen from her backpack. There were about 12 different substitute teachers in and out of the class, no joke. My daughter's class had multiple children that had behavior issues and the class was contstantly in chaos and being yelled at. My daughter was constantly stressed. It took almost 2 weeks, emails and visits to the office to get and appt with the principal who offered no solutions to the problem until multiple parents complained and the district was notified. The final straw for us, the teacher was removed from the class in the last 6 wks of school. Very disappointed."

    "To the Parent who posted yesterday's comment. Your facts are just not accurate and you should get them straight before making such a public comment. It is absolutely false and reckless for you to say "Many, if not most of the kids are bussed in from far-away disadvantaged neighborhoods". Spreckels' enrollment numbers have dwindled over the past 2 years because, in fact, the number of busses have been decreased by approximately 150%. We have less kids today than we did 2 years ago, because over a hundred kids who were getting bussed in no longer have that option. I'll refrain from commenting on your ignorant referral to a group of partents as "this cohort". I actually agree with your assessment of the Spanish language program but unfortunately your good points are lost with your inaccurate, overbroad, and frankly offensive comments."

    "My child attended the Seminar program at this school, which seems to have been placed at this school only to bring up the dismal performance of the broader school population. The Seminar program was, in itself, great. However..... Many, if not most of the kids are bussed in from far-away, disadvantaged neighborhoods, with little parental school involvement by this cohort. The Spanish language focus is a sham - weekly Spanish lessons, our kid was never tested for Spanish proficiency, no grade was issued, and, as far as we can see, little was learned. Frankly, this school should be closed, and the local population folded into Curie, to create a true community school. The money that is now spent bussing kids all the way across town should be spent on their education in a school closer to their homes, not spent on bus drivers, gasoline and buses."

    "Absolutely love this school. I have a Kindergartener and a 2nd grader and both have excelled in their academics since starting here."

    "I choiced my son into Spreckels because it used to have a wonderful reputation, that is not the case anymore. I know countless families who have decided to leave and we are one of them. They call the school a Bilingual Magnet but my son learned more Spanish from Sesame Street- he got a 1/2 hour of Spanish once a week. This is the case for older grades too. My son was here for K & 1st grade, in both years his teachers left & new ones started. The new 1st grade teacher was brand new, never taught alone before & was completely overwhelmed. She had many students who had behavioral & learning issues. Many parents in the class asked the principal & administration for help, but we were ignored. The principal NEVER returned our calls, emails and letters. She told one parent from our class that this school year "would be a "wash" for us, some years are good & some bad". She did NOTHING to help our teacher. Safety is also an issue, two drunk men walked right into the front gate & walked into classrooms. The school went on lockdown for an 90 mins but parents were not notified. Our kids told us when we picked them up. Main gate is open & not monitored, it cannot be seen from the front office."
