    I like the size and the location of the school. There are two afterschool programs that serve the school (one at the school and another at a community center across the street). I feel that my son is very safe here. The playground is not the best but the facility inside is very good. Kindergarten has a stove refrigerator and parents provided many nutritional snacks. 1st grade class had an unbelievable large screen computer that provided an fabulous learning tool for the class. The P&T Committee are a very hard working group that has done a wonderful job.

    I am happy with my daughter's exploration of Spanish. She is in the dual language program and comes home with new words all the time. Her first grade teacher like the ones she had in Kinder works hard. The staff is always helpful and Mrs. Ortiz the principal is never too busy to hear a parent or student out. The only thing that the school might be lacking is extracurricular activities for kids of my girl's age. But I have actually recommended to school to my parent friends.

    I think Dolores Gonzales is a wonderful school. My son has been in the dual language program and is doing very well. He is in second grade and has had very support and wonderful teachers. We are active with the school and participate in Math Night and Science Night. Dora is a very kind and caring principle.

    One of Albuquerque's best kept secrets. The dual language program is excellent and Iwe have been very impressed with the rate at which our child is learning to read write and speak both English and Spanish.

    Dolores Gonzales has been great for our kindergardener. The dual language program already has him incorporating spanish words in his conversations. His teacher is caring and very enthusiastic and the class size is small. So far so good!

    This school is far from great! There is to much emphasis on perfection. The teachers principle and other staff expect far to much from these students. The school and many students that attend are poor and there are not enough provisions provided for them. Not to mention the school requires the students to wear uniforms making it hard for many parents by having to buy a whole new wardrobe! Much of the staff has been there for years and in desperate need of retirement as it is apparent they cannot handle kids anymore!

    Excellent school great parent participation staff members are allways helping parents and children. Teachers work extremly hard to implement the latest curriculum. I am very pleased with this school.
