    "If you are concerned over child safety do not let your child attend this school. The receptionist has very poor work ethic and the children are minimally monitored on campus. My child was left waiting outside because the front office was "too busy" to simply have her wait in the office for me. I received a call from another parent informing me that my child was crying walking alone on hollister ave. Hopefully the next front office personnel they have will not be too busy to ensure the safety of my child."

    "I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about Nestor. I am an alumni of the language academy and am currently a high school senior. I attended Nestor k-6 and graduated as the valedictorian of my 6th grade class. Nestor's test scores do not nearly reflect the quality of education your child will receive. Teachers are incredibly committed to students and spend many unpaid hours after school and over breaks to make lesson plans phenomenal. They connect very deeply with their students and parents. I still keep in contact with several of them! I thoroughly enjoyed the curriculum and focus of language, culture, and diversity throughout my years. Starting in third grade, we learned of the importance of bilingualism and discussed our bicultural lifestyle. These topics could not have otherwise been taught to a group so young. There are many opportunities for kids to be involved and contribute to the campus. Programs like music, safety patrol, peace patrol, student council, Fall Festival committee, the after school program and more all help build leadership experiences. I am so pleased with the growth of the language academy and have nothing but fond memories of my time there."

    "There are some good aspects about this school, for instance the early years teachers are great! However, the middle school requires a much more in-depth curriculum; where the students can be more engaged, supported, and challenged. In closing, the demographics in terms of population are not as balanced as it could be."
