I have attended Castelar Elementary School from K-4th Grade. I've had excellent teachers that were ASIANS and spoke fluent English who helped shape me into what I am today. Thank you Castelar teachers, who were extremely dedicated, for contributing to my success.Regarding the comment above posted by a concerned parent-I have not heard of such a thing happening in this school.Keep in mind that there is two columns for grading: The first column is academic performance and the second is for the student's effort.Looking at the situation you presented, you are probably looking at the effort/participation column.

My son goes to this school now and he is in a dual (Chinese & English) language class. He gets average to below average homework scores but the teacher gives him a lot of 4s (4 being the highest) on his report card. I am not sure if my son is really learning English and if he has really earned that score of 4. The teacher has told me on the phone that she has a lot to get through and to teach. However, many second language learner like my son learn English at a different and slower pace than those who are not second language learner. I have met the teacher at my first parent teacher conference and my impression is not so good.This school has changed a lot over the years ... Many teachers are not native English teachers and most of them like my son's English teacher are Asian. To me, the school is only an average school.
