From a Northeast LA mom:
We live a few miles away from Eagle Rock but have seriously been thinking about applying to Eagle Rock High School's International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme for my two middle-school children. We love the feel of the school, the diversity and the neighborhood. Wondering if you Eagle Rock residents whose kids have gone through the program can offer some advice:
1) The program’s mission is to prepare students for international, culturally rich lives, through foreign language study, intercultural awareness and public speaking. Based on these principles, how successful would you say the program is?
2) How nurturing and effective are the educators?
3) How bright and committed are the other students?
4) Are there any drug, gang or bullying problems we should know about?
