    Testing is below average here. Nothing compared to San Diego school district. Staff and teachers don't seem to do the best for what they have but my kids seem to like it. There are times my youngest will complain about his 3rd grade teacher this is when I step in and talk to her and get an explanation. Overall they have been good to us. Thank you.

    my son is speech delayed came to this school staff and teacher worked with him with patience and did not give up on him. Kidergarden class is small class they are not crowded like other schools. Son attended a regular class he was not in a class with other kids with disabilities which would only cause him to fall back.

    I have had 2 boys go thru this school and did ok the grades werent the best i still have one son left who is a 5th grade. I feel the teachers are great and do the best they can when they have so many students in one classroom its hard. If we had more teachers and smaller classrooms i think the school would do alot better.

    I have a daughter who started from kindergarten. All the teachers are very passionate to teach and most of all give the full attention to each individual child. Mr. Gunter who is a principal there he involves and creates many activities for children to learn and motivates children to involve all the school activities. He's very caring and has a great leadership. I really love their school system. My daughter is only 1st grader but knows how to read and write excellently including how to do computer. I'm so pleased about this school that my daughter can't wait to go to school everyday.

    As a teacher I have the inside track on quite a few things. I have to say from the inside out this school is run very professionally. Every educational decision is research based. The staff are dedicated to the student's success. The most important motivation for every decision we make is based upon the well-being of the child.

    I have two kids that attend school here. My oldest is in 4th grade and my youngest is in 1st. I also am a board member of the PTC. The school is an average school. Most of the teachers are great but there are a few that I do not think should be allowed to teach. The principal and Vice Principal also do a great job. They have activities throughout the year to encourage the students to do better. Their are only two bad things I can say about this school. There is little to no parent involvement for the majority of the parents with kids at this school and there also seems to be a lot of bullying done by the students that goes unpunished.

    For this year 2005 I think we have had a great year. I would like to see a lot more of parent involvement. The Principal and Vice Principal have done a great job. The Fundraisers have been better this year so far. The teachers really know there stuff. The staff there have been great. This has been a great school to be apart of.
