I actually disagree with the parent who was talking about the school being good only for perfect children.....The school has a large special needs program and they are really good with the children who have behavioral issues.

If you have a perfect child then this school is the place for them. But, let's face it, no one has a perfect child. If your child is special needs (in any form) I would not send them here. I recently had a conversation with a former teacher of Golden Hill and he told me that the principal and asst principal do not care about the kids in the behavior room. That there was numerous occasions that he called them with a problem and they took their time to respond (thats if they responded at all). The staff is a sad example of of what teachers should be. If you want the best eduaction for your child I would look somewhere else...
