    My son attended this school only one year and that was the biggest mistake I have ever made. My son was marked absent for seven days but no one could tell me how this happened. My son was never a conduct problem yet I continuously had issues with the dean of students confusing him with other little boys. I highly recommend closing this school down or firing everyone and starting over with completely new staff.

    I have kids that began their education at villa del rey and went for four years there. Worst four years of my life. The teachers are pathetic...the children are out of control. Most of the kids are awful kids so the teachers don't try with anyone bad or not.

    I was very disappointed this year. Parents were never notified of any extra activities. The teachers only focused was the leap test. They had no regards to the students. The teachers were very stressed the entire year. This activity stressed the children. They had no help when it came to the social studies and science fair. I am transfering my child this year.

    I am very disappointed with the Administrative Staff (Office Personnel Not the teachers). All through out the school year the up and coming activities the school has was always late getting to the parents. Last minute information and very little information on the projects like Social Studies and Science fairs. Very little physical activities during rainy days. Unable to participate in any activities outside the school. Parent involvement is considered very little. Teachers are over worked with undisciplined children. Some Parents treat school as a daycare center where they can pick up and leave without notice to teachers and staff.
