My daughter was in a very famous school district in Orange County last two years. A lot of parents choose this city for the school district. That’s why I first moved into this city as well three years ago. I have been closely following Pacific Technology School (PTS) Santa Ana. I had a couple of friends whose sons and daughters attend PTS. I wasn’t very happy about my daughter’s Math in her local public school. She wasn’t challenged at all even though I talked to her teacher couple of times. I saw her decline in Math in her two years at this school. One final obstacle for her was the Algebra screening test. Based on that screening test, she wasn’t allowed for Algebra in seventh grade because she missed one or two more items on the test. This was tipping point for me. I decided to move my daughter to PTS. After talking with my daughter, we went to PTS. She got a screening test there as well. She was allowed to take Algebra there. Besides regular Algebra course, she was challenged with Advanced math problems every week. She was trying her best effort through out the year. There were always some problems she wasn’t able to solve. But she liked Math again. I sometimes questioned the strategy of her teacher as well. But, her teacher was confident that her method works and my daughter gained confidence in Math and she is not bored with Math anymore. I don’t need to try to motivate her anymore.
From my first year as a parent of PTS, I am impressed with how teachers put all their energy and effort for all of their students. They consistently monitor student progress and inform parents right away. No student slips through the cracks at PTS. Kids are inspired to do their best and they enjoy Math and Science.
Thank you PTS!
