    "This is the school I had always wanted for my kids: dual language, strong academics, caring teachers and a strong leadership. I am so excited that my kids can stay at Mt. Vernon till 8th grade. It is amazing not only to see my kids speaking Spanish and reading hard content in both languages. Mt. Vernon ia a hidden diamond in Lemon Grove. Thank you to everyone that helps make the school as my kids say: "the best school in the Universe"."

    "I was very diasappointed in this school. It got so bad I had to pull my children out with a little more than a month of school to go. The Administration and the 1st grade English only teacher really need to think about the decisions they have made and the total lack of to support given to this class. The class is very out of control, certain students are downright violent and have many emotional problems that the teacher is not trained to handle. All I got was there is nothing we can do. My student was not up to the standared reading and writing for 1st Grade Standards. Although I placed them in extra outside tutoring the teacher still did not make any attempts to help out or give me any feedback about their progress. Matter of fact half the class cannot read or write. The Principal shrugs his shoulders and says protocol dictates when asked why the teacher is still in the classroom and clearly lacks in classroom management and teaching skliils. Very disturbing for any Parent and child to have to deal with. I worked closely with the school with these issues but it became painfully obvious that my children were harmed both physically and mentally due to this classroom's teacher."

    "Our daughter has attended Mt. Vernon since Kindergarten and she is in 4th grade now. They have an Excellent dual language immersion program that challenges the children to learn English and Spanish at the same time. Our other daughter is in K dual language class and although it tires her out, we never thought she would be doing so well in two languages at such a young age. The teachers care about the students and there are a lot of PTA and dinner fundraisers so the kids don't have to sell things during the year. Overall we are truly happy and blessed to have found such a great school for our kids. Even with funding cuts, they have worked with what they're given and have creative events that the children enjoy that promote respect and humanitarianism. They have Bingo for books, field trips, plays, and have a morning Mustang Mileage Club for the kids to participate before class. They support Box Tops for Education and have carnivals and recognition assemblies for the children to promote peace building. I can't express enough how fortunate we are to have found this school."
