Yes a very large percentage of students are learning English. Many parents do not speak English. Having them learn the language is not on the forefront, everything is translated. The school receives funds for having such students. STARR testing is harped on, not creativity or traditional projects or learning for fun. A vast majority of students need turtoring year after year. Some children are in front of a screen all day without recess using computer programs. PTO meetings are few and far between and not keeping parents up to date. So much more...

This school does not have any classes for kids that speak english only. Classes are either spanish or Dual Language. Dual Language classes are half day spanish and half day english. So, kids that don't speak english get a full day of education but kids that speak english get a half days education. English speaking kids are getting unfair treatment because they know the American language.... We live in America, classes should be in english and then have alternatives for nonenglish speaking kids.
