    "We had a great first year at Spreckels. My son's kindergarten teacher was wonderful. As a teacher myself, I'm amazed at how much reading he is doing after a year here. This was our neighborhood school and some of our neighbors had told us to choice into a another neighboring school. So glad we didn't as we loved it! We liked that this school has a diversity of cultures and socio-economic backgrounds as we want our son to be grounded. We found the other parents to be involved. Do wish the Spanish program was a little more developed as others have noted. I was also surprised by how little time they had for art but wow, I was impressed by their music/dancing program. Obviously I realize that a teacher can make or break your school year so I'm hoping that he gets more good ones."

    "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."
