    I attend this school from 2nd grade to 6th grade and now my daughter has just started Kindergarten. I am very happy that she is able to attend the school that I learned so much from.

    We're the panthers we're the best!!!! Not sure if that song has changed. I was a student here years ago ) I loved this school. Till this day I think about the principal Mrs.wu and the best teacher ever...Mr. Michael Johnson )))) I'm 26 years old now but will forever hold a special place for the one year I spent at this school.

    My son attended this school for Kindergarten. His Teacher Mrs. Wood is a good teacher Its the Principle and staff in the office that need help. He was being called to the principle office for fighting almost every week. The principle would take him out of recess instead of trying to find the underlining issue. I spoke to my son and come to find out that he was being bullied by a 9 year old student in bathrooms. I called the principle and she never returned me call then the superintendent of the school district and was told that he was busy. Even though i explained it was a bulling issue. I was never called back and I will NEVER EVER recommend this school for that lack of supervision and concern for this serious matter.

    My son attends K at this school and his teacher has an amazing amount of patience with all her students. My son is happy and learning quickly because I participate in his classroom activities as often as I can and I see what his teacher goes through everyday. My hats off to all the teachers and staff Thank you.

    This school is a great place for your child to learn. The teachers staff and principal are great. The school is always looking out for the child's best interest.

    After having a horrible experience with a teacher from another school whom very obviously was... 'just doing her job'... It is with overwhelming gratitude I have for the teachers at Pendleton Elementary who really care about their students.
