Unfortunately, there are many built-in excuses why Vargas Elementary School is not faring well. The principal is set to retire, the student body is nearly 50% English language learners, the neighborhood hosts a transient population - but enough excuses!

This school could be so much better if the neighborhood stepped up and demanded more. No more teaching-for-the-test, to the point of neglecting average students in order to coach coach coach the ELL students to pass tests. It's not fair to any of the students. The Sunnyvale Elem. School District does not offer home-language instruction, yet places all the blame for low test scores on non-English speaking students. They assess and instruct in English, then decry the poor performance on the test - when the students don't speak English.

Very unappealing to those who desire to learn English, as well as native English speakers who wish a good education for their children.
