    I used to be a student here and I HATED it. I was bullied and got no help from anyone. I remember not being able to afford lunch and even got bullied for just that! My teacher at the time couldn't figure out how to help me and started caring once my mother called and said I would cry to stay home because I hated it so much. There was one incident where I was shoved down by a teacher when getting a book and sitting with the rest of the students. I didn't do it "fast enough" I guess and she shoved me down. Another incident is when I inched my head and all the kids yelled that I had lice and reported it. I got sent to the nurses office and I didn't have lice but they sent me home anyway. It's great that y'all are happy with this school. But I'm older now and have a baby on the way and I would NEVER put my kid through this school. Sure the academics are good but dang. I would want someone helping my kid if they fell on the playground and got hurt... And not just laugh or walk away like nothing happend. I still hate this school.

    Reche Canyon is the best elementary school in the Colton School District. The Principal Mrs Mumper trully cares about the kids and all the staff. she brings certificated (teachers) classified (kitchen staff office staff etc) and management together. this is not easy to do. moreover the parent participation is great. it is a small school located in a beautiful canyon. your child would be treated well by all staff and more importantly will excel. so if you get an opportunity to have your child transfer do it it will be the best thing you could do for your child.

    It's been a month we move to Texas due to my husband job relocation and we miss Reche Canyon already... I am shock to see that the curriculum in here is so far behind than Reche Canyon...The curriculum & the homework at my son's new school is way too easy for him. I'm very dissapointed with my son's new school (Garner Elementary). I wish I could find school as best as Reche Canyon in here...Reche Canyon is the best ! *Joseph's Mom*

    My daughter was a new student this year and this school is wonderful. She had an easy transition and her teacher (Mrs. Chapman) is fantastic.

    My son has been at Reche Canyon since kindergarden now he is in third grade and is been a wonderfull experience for both of us. Mrs Mumper the principal is really caring about her kids(students) and very supportive to their parents and I couldn`t ask for better teachers for my son staring with Mrs Kocian and Mom Kocian Mrs Lazzarini Mrs Murphy and now Mrs Gillete they been great and very kind to me.

    I have 3 kids in this school....one in kinder first and second grade. I do have to echo the sentiments about Mrs. Preciado.....we LOVE her. I am hoping to get my daughter switched to her class this year (my son had her last year). Mrs. Mumper is very involved and cares more about her students then she does about the $$$$. The level of communication with the teachers is great the parent involvement is very high and there is a great community feeling there that you don't get from other area schools.

    My daughter just graduated Kindergarten and her teacher was amazing. She transferred to Reche Canyon after 2 weeks of attending another school because it was over-crowded. And it was a blessing in disguise - she was nervous her first day and by the second day she was ready to shine. Mrs. Preciado is one of many great teachers at this school - the principal is also amazing. I would rate this school 110%!!! I even signed an inter-district transfer because I prefer this school over Terrace View. (The teachers/students left a better impression at Reche Canyon rather than Terrace View).

    Very good teachers academic programs adequate. Extracurricular activities fair. After school care program outrageously expensive ripping off the state and work parents.

    In my 20 year experience hands down the best elementary school any of my children have ever attended.

    Very good school. The administration is excelent. The teachers really care about the students learning. One teacher really stands out but i wont include her name in my comments.

    Reche Canyon is excellent school. The teachers and staff genuinely care for all students personally and academically. It has the potential to amoung the top with more parent involvement and community support.

    This is my fifth year as a mother of a student at Reche Canyon Elementary and I have seen an unbelievable interaction between the staff and students. It's more than I could have expected! I still have a great admiration for our first teacher of five years ago Mrs. J. Johnson. The staff works in harmony from what I can see. It feels like one big happy family which sure makes for great parent participation. This school shows great hope for our kids. Elise Stinzel
