Sombra del Monte is an average school with a handful of outstanding educators. Both of my children enjoyed attending the school and had good experiences with the teachers there. Overall the staff quality seems to be on the higher end although some programs/procedures (such as the "rainbow" schedule and homogeneous leveled reading classes) seem to hinder the school's overall success. The special education department was highly responsive to my daughter's needs and the staff shows genuine care for the students. Parental involvement is limited to a handful of dedicated parents but this is partly due to weak organization and meetings held during regular working hours that exclude many parents. Overall this is a solid school in a working-class neighborhood that adequately meets the needs of its population.
