Open Quote Don't put your child through the pain of going through this school. It's not worth it. The school can not provide a balanced and promising education for your child. Go into the Poway/Rancho Bernardo district; or anywhere else really. This school cannot provide a sustainable education. Close Quote

Open Quote Presumably understaffed, at least that's the reason given for the lack of follow-up in returning phone calls or getting information in a timely way from the office staff and Principal. It seems that their priorities these days are fundraisers since that's what the bulk of the recorded messages pertain to when I answer the phone and listen to the messages.

Spanish-speaking parents are given preferential time and treatment, which is very wrong, IMO. If they have kids in school here, they should at least make an attempt to assimilate and learn English so that they can understand directions and help their own kids, rather than have time taken away from those who do speak English. We don't need all these extra considerations - financial and otherwise - for those who thumb their noses at our language. If they insist on not learning it, they can go back to the country they came from and speak their own language all the time! It does NOT impress me that the Principal can speak Spanish - big deal. It would impress me if he would do something to help those who only speak Spanish - or claim to only speak Spanish. My kids don't get the attention they should get in the classrooms when we are teaching down to accommodate the second-language students whose parents can't/won't help them with homework and studying.

This is unfortunate all the way around. If the teachers and staff don't like their jobs and/or think they should be paid more money, then PLEASE have them step aside to allow an open position to be filled by someone who is out of work and truly cares about students, themselves and the school system, as well as BVMS. The apathy is pathetic over there. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
