    "This school is good, but I feel that it could be alot better. There are so many things that they can be doing to get the parents to get involved with the school. Unfortunately, I dont see the enthusiasm that's needed to attract the parents involvement. Also, they should have teachers aids, some times the teacher struggle because they have over 35 students per classroom and no one to help them with the kids. The school has a lot of potential, hopefully things get better for the children's sake."

    "This school has gone down the drain since Mr. Alarcon the principal started. Not to mention how he just brushes the real problems to the side. This school at one point and time was a good school back when my other two children attended there. And the afterschool program they have (think together) is soooo unorganized. They never know where ur child is. When picking them up they could never find them, you have to search every room!!!.. And the school teachers their r so ignorant!.. They talk down to the students and belittle them in front of everyone!.. This school is a horrible school starting with the pricipal."

    "McKibben is doing a fantastic job of educating it students! Teachers truly care about the students and the new principal is great!. He has brought a new and exciting energy to this school that was definitely needed. He cares about the students' success and has offered them many enrichment opportunities such as Student Council and the Reading Olympics. He supports the teachers and listens to the parents' concerns! Due to outrageous budget cuts in California,there are many challenges that face our school which include overcrowded classrooms, not enough para-support for classroom teachers, lack of enrichment programs for students, and the pressure to meet increased testing standards. These factors make being a public school teacher extremely demanding! Unfortunately, many parents continue to blame the classroom teacher, and fail to see that what is needed is the support of the parents. Parents need to be advocates for the teachers!"

    "I am so disappointed with the 1st grade eduction. My daughter started with McKibben in kindergarten and it was an amazing year. I was looking forward for another amazing year in 1st grade but sad to say that is not what happen. My daughter informed me that her teacher does not really speak to her because she has to speak to the other kids that need more help. I do not leave the full responsibilty of teaching to the school, I also work with my daughter on a daily basis but I would also like for the teacher to put some attention to my child. I would love for my daughter to stay at McKibben but I am not willing to risk another bad year. My family moved to whittier for better schooling for my daughter but its so sad to say that we had a bad year."
