    Arroyo Verde is a fantastic Elementary School! We came from a small private school mid-way through the year and the students staff and faculty went the extra mile to help my kids have a smooth transition. I love the extra programs and clubs offered to my kids and have been beyond pleased with the communication between the school teachers and parents

    Arroyo Verde was an excellent school. I only went there for 5th grade in the 2012-2013 school year but I found that there was a different general personality from the staff and students. I came from a private school and I thought that everybody was going to be mean and dislikable. It turned out that there are very few bullies fights and mean teachers. The teaching curriculum is very well organized and the staff are very encouraging. The principle encourages students to be "College Bound" by having each class adopt a college. Arroyo has band and choir as extra curriculum activities and they are both very productive. Awards are always being given out for good behavior and being a College Bound student. The field trips are fun exciting and educational to all students.They also have G.A.T.E. (Gifted And Talented Education) for the over achievers and the smarter students. I'd recommend Arroyo Verde to all children who are looking for a challenge and some fun.

    My son used to go to another California distinguished school in San Diego county and I was uneasy about moving him out to the Inland Empire area. This school has made me more comfortable. I am grateful we found Arroyo Verde! Principal is very efficient and manages her school well. They have a lot school events and involve the parents as well. This school has been a blessing and because of Arroyo Verde my son IS COLLEGE BOUND! )

    We are satisfied with Arroyo Verde overall. My child's teacher is wonderful-she truly understands what motivates each child and does a great job. Areas that could improve in our experience-the school response to parental concerns could be more timely with better follow through and we wish there was more supervision/structure/safety during recess.

    I feel that the quality of the academic program is up to standards with the area schools. There are alot more extracurricular activities available at this school than in other surrounding area schools. I do not feel there is enough parent involvement in this school due to strict rules regarding the students and parental involvement not being welcomed. The relationships between teacher/parent is frowned upon and it is not in any way encouraged. I think this sets the school up for failure when it comes to every student passes. A child may be left behind or find himself falling behind or just simply not complying to the schools rules in the classroom due to the strictness of the teacher and lack of communication with parents. I think that the teachers should be evaluated in the classroom as well as one on one and the stress levels should be monitored.

    Arroyo Verde provided a sound well-articulated curriculum that prepared my kids well for their future schooling. The teachers and staff are caring the parents involved and supportive and the administration was always availble. My kids loved their (cumulative) 1 years there.

    I thought this was a great school for my son. He became involved in music and sports. The extracurricular activity offered was a terrific learning experience as well as a fond memory. The only thing I didn't care for was the class splits. Combo class example 4th and 5th together same teacher.
