    My son goes here and if or wasn't for his wonderful teacher I would have him switch schools. The staff is extremely rude. They seem so stressed out all the time. Even during pick up and drop off they are yelling and flailing their arms around the kids. I've asked the office staff questions before and they seem irritated and talk to you like you're stupid for not knowing something. One staff member yelled at me when I dropped off my son at 8 22 am. and told me next time she was shutting the gate earlier and proceeded to snicker and roll her eyes with another staff member while I spoke. The gate doesn't even open until 8 15 am. It is also annoying that you can not walk your child to class. The second day of school my son was bummed. Most interactions with staff have been negative. The supervisors aren't very friendly with the kids and are very strict. My son hsd to lose recess for bringing food to the playground. It is not the close nit school Iwas hoping for.

    I have two children at this school. My oldest will be finishing 5th grade this year and my youngest will be going into 4th next year. The teachers have ALL been phenomenal! Teaching with passion desire to truly help children learn. The principal has so much to do with the success of this school and so there it is she cares enough to ensure those students are cared for. Text scores are important but the bottom line is if your a parent that is hands on and you care enough about your children's education they will be successful in excelling here at Promenade.

    It would be great if lower income parents that live in nearby apartments would contribute more to this school. If it wasn't for homeowners in the area the school would not be as great as it is. It is always sad that the poor always fail to contribute time and energy to their children's education. We need to make each and every parent responsible so that our children can continue to receive great education in the Corona Hills community.

    My oldest daughter spent all of her elementary years here and my youngest daughter is currently following in those footsteps so I've had many years of observing and interacting with the staff and parents. Every teacher I've dealt with has a true passion for the kids and teaching and I couldn't be more pleased. They are very organized and have many fun events throughout the year.

    my son is about to end his 1st year at promenade elementary school. I have been very pleased with all of the staff. I cant wait for him to continue here next year for 1st grade.

    My daughter started her first year of school here and we are very very pleased. The staff is very friendly and caring. The teachers are excellent. My daughter is a little advanced and her teacher took notice of it right away and has made sure that she gets challenged but still feels included in everyday activities. The only negative is the classes are crowded but they work very hard to make sure that all the students get the attention they need. Parent involvement is also excellent. I absolutely do not mind waiting outside a locked fence to pick up my daughter. The childrens safety is very important here. I do wish that recess and lunch were longer but my daughter is so happy here and she loves her teacher. Definitely a great school.

    I'm very pleased going into my son's second year at Promenade (he'll be a first-grader) and I was apprehensive having gone to private Catholic schools all my life. I volunteered every Thursday my frequent presence gave me a better vantage point than most other reviewers here. To begin the parent who claimed her child was too pressured academically in kindergarten and missed 32 sick days is a doornob! Missing 32 days of school put her child at an insurmountable disadvantage not the K-teachers. I know all 3 personally and Romain won teacher of the district! My son had Gilbert a lovely woman with decades of experience Mrs Nighswonger is equally kind and qualified. The only thing barring 5 stars in my experience is out of their hands class sizes in excess of 30 due to budget cuts has the teachers spread very thin this could be alleviated greatly if more parents volunteered for TA spots in a Kindergarten class of 32 only 2 other parents pitched in 64 parents and just 3 were willing to help. If you want your children to have a better education in lean times roll up your sleeves and volunteer. This is our school people our kids futures are at stake.

    My daughter went to this school k-2 grades. I loved each one of her teachers. they were great and very caring about each one of their students.My daughter was always sick and each year it got worse she ended up missing a lot of school I thought it was my daughter but come to find it was not. We moved to Oceanside CA last summer. Our daughter just ended her first year in her new school and she did great. She did not get sick as much went from missing 32 days of school to only missing 6. I came to realize that Promenade Principle puts to much pressure on the academics and how they are taught. I know some kids its fine but for my daughter it literally made her sick so much she even spent time in the hospital. The school she is in now teaches the same format but at a stress free environment. The kids learn more and fell less stress. I feel this school puts to stress on the kids and its hard for them at this age school should not be stressful. At her school kids have freedom to even eat outside in the fresh air not cooped up in the cafeteria until everyone is done. Parents are allowed on campus to get there kids after school and not have to wait at a locked gate.like a prison

    This is my daughters second year at Promenade and she loves it. She came from Crossroads and she was very fortunate to get Ms. Guthrie as her first teacher. She has excelled and just started the All Star program. This will be her first year of student council too. I love Promenade Elementary!

    Our family moved here in Aug. 09. Our grandson attends Promenade and we as well as he totally loves this school. They are very supportive in making sure he gets the best education possible. His teacher Mrs. Crough rocks! She keeps us very informed on his progress and communicates any needs. Thank you Promenade staff! You have truly made our coming here alotnicer.

    This year with a new Asst. Principle/Principle things seem to be running much more smoother than previous years. So a definate plus! However it would be nice to receive more news letters/information regarding what's new expectations etc....this school complains about parental involvement but never does anything to change that!
