    "Attended open house to see how my son was doing and see his school work & grades. But that didn't even happen at their open house! They had all parents in one room with all 3rd grade teachers there, and some lady was speaking about what kids can & can't wear,....that computer lab is open for early students at 7:15am and test dates are April 22 & 23rd so not to miss,....etc. We didn't even get to see any of my child's class work or enter his room since it was locked and all teachers were at the 2nd meeting for the late parents. That is not helping my child's education at all! I even attending "breakfast with mom" and the principal was giving a speech in Spanish about rules and regulations! It was not even breakfast w/ mom!!! Wow!"

YELLED AT THEM, SAID SHE WAS GONNA CALL THE COPS ON THEM, LET MY SON & OTHER STUDENTS THAT WERE NOT THAT ADVANCED PLAY THE WHOLE YEAR WITH OUT TEACHING THEM ANYTHING!!!ONLY SAT DOWN WITH THE STUDENTS THAT KNEW THE BASICS!!! THEREFORE MY SON HAS BEEN STRUGGLING EVER SINCE, HE'S SELF-ESTEEM IS DOWN, HE'S WORDS; "MOM, HOW COME I CANT READ OR WRITE JUST LIKE MY FRIENDS? THEY KNOW HOW TO DO EVERYTHING & FAST & I CANT!!" THAT JUST TEARS MY HEART APART EVERY SINGLE DAY I SEE HIM STRUGGLE, IT ONLY REMINDS ME THAT THIS SCHOOL IS NOT WORTH IT & THERFORE IVE DECIDED TO TRANSFER HIM!!! IVE HAD SO MANY MEETINGS WITH THE PRINCIPAL WITH THE FIRST ONE & THE ONE PRESENT, NONE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX ANY PROBLEMS!!! THEY JUST PROMISE BUT NEVER GET NOTHING DONE!!! THE LAST INCIDENT MY SON WAS BEING BULLIED!!!!! ITS NOT THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENS, AND LIKE ALWAYS NO ONE IS NEVER AROUND TO SEE WHAT HAPPEND!!! WORST SCHOOL!"
