I attended Juan Crespi from 2010-2012. In general, it's a mediocre school. While GATE glasses are offered, there are no advanced math classes. The GATE classes that are offered are taught by amazing teachers though. The only problem is the students. A lot of them are really ghetto and/or disruptive, especially in non-advanced classes. If you go here, hope that you''re in GATE.

I met with a counselor, about my childs grades. The counselor was far more interested in telling me about my child being tardy, than he was about the real question. I want to know what can be done to improve my childs grades and make sure he is prepared for the next grade. This counselor spoke to me as if he had no interest in my child. My main concern at this point is, if I cannot communicate with him on an adult level how can 12 and 13 year old children communicate. He does not seem to care about the children or their education. Public schools need to make counselors accountable for following up with children with low grades. He does not seem to care so; Why should the children care or have any interest in learning and understanding?
