    Maloney is a warm and friendly school that comforts parents when dropping off their child knowing they are in good hands. Their student council is very good and the students elected show great leadership and definately know their stuff. However this school lacks incentives causing students not to do so good. Also the high achievers of this school hardly get recognition only a certificate and a chance to go up on stage that lasts about two minutes. If this continues many of the students will feel like there is no point in achieving so what's the point?

    The teachers are great at Maloney very attentive caring and good communicators. I've enjoyed working with both of my daughters' teachers and there is even a couple who have made positive lasting impressions on my kids. Kudos to Maloney for hiring and keeping the good ones.

    Good Teachers. Bad principal. She is not involved with anything going on in the school. Has no emotions for children. Rude. No after school programs.

    My daughter is on her 3rd school year at Maloney and I must say that I am very pleased with all of her teachers and the involvement they have with each child. The kids at the school are kind to each other and the school has a sense of community. The school and principal also embrace diversity which is something that is very important to me as a parent. Overall I would recommend this school as a parent.

    My son joined Maloney in Grade II and the teachers are excellent. They train the children collectively as well as individually according to their learning abilities. I have been volunteering regularly and am amazed about the progress a few children have made. Extracredit homework and projects are also given for children who are academically inclined. Teachers keep the best interest of every child in mind. They respond immediately to all the parent's queries. I had mixed feelings about the school intially but am more than satisfied now.

    We're new to Maloney this year. The staff I've encountered while volunteering have the kids' best interest at heart and my family feels safe there. The curriculum is the same as any FUSD school. Maloney is smaller than neighboring schools a benefit for kids that need extra attention. In 4 months my kid is known by name by all K teachers and office staff (not for disciplinary issues). The big challenge is the transient nature of the population. This issue affects testing/API ratings and community-building. Maloney is an overload school so kids move when their number comes up at Parkmont/Glenmoor and parents of overload students may not always want to get involved (PTA volunteering). Maloney increased its API rating to 7 this year but because many kids are moved around the effects of Maloney teaching are also reflected in the scores of the 10/10 schools. Kids move into the district mid-year and fill Maloney spots vacated by overloads but may not have been taught to API tests. This school would rise to Above Average with more parental involvement and be Excellent if overloads were better-managed by the district.

    Terrible principal. Has no control over student discipline. I met her multiple times over bullying incidents of my son. Not sure how other parents are giving high ratings for this school. Most fremont school API and school ratings are going up while the ratings of this school consistently goes down every year

    This school is good since the principal is very understanding she understands every problem on students and parents level also. Some teachers are really very good kids and partents too love them. Only the concern is PTA should encourage the parents to volunteer in the class or school which will make the rating of this school 10/10.

    The teachers are excellent . On speaking to some teachers I dont think principal infuses any enthusiasm among the teachers either. My kids still remember some of their early teachers here.

    Great teachers that provide a warm and encouraging environment for students and their families. Awesome science and computers faculty.

    I have three children currently at Maloney. All three have excellent teachers that have been more than willing to speak to me and communicate with me continuously. I have had interactions with the principle and teachers including one negative meeting but always walked out of that school feeling satisfied with the outcome and not doubting that they had my children's best interest in mind at all times.
