Does the school provide appropriate assistance to new students?

They provide some assistance and systems to help new students orient themselves. For middle school, there is a time to visit and be introduced to how things work before the school year begins. "Buddies" were also assigned. They need a program where a family is a support to a new family as it's hard to break into this school's culture/world as most of the Mexican families have been going here for generations or at least the kids have grown up together and already have strong ties with one another. - Feb 5, 2016
