    Creative caring teachers and staff. We feel very fortunate to have such an exceptional school right here in our neighborhood. Keep up the great work!

    Great experience with the teachers (Love Mrs. McNamara Mrs. Weiss Ms. Rikimaru and Beres). Unfortunatley there is a kid problem/bully problem at this school that is not taken seriously. It's been brought to the principals attention who takes a rather laid back approach. I have spoken to a number of mothers who have encountered the same problem.

    This school is great. Mrs. Mcnamara is the best kindergarten teacher ever. She genuinely cares for the kids and is very patient when it comes to communicating with parents.

    Mrs. Kaplan is a gem. She knows how to teach effectively to different student learning styles and truly cares.

    As a principal I understand the concerns of parents regarding bullying. It is something that we take seriously at Myford and are implementing some new programs in order to do so. This year our first assembly is an anti-bullying assembly put on by the company The Power of One. Throughout the year we will be addressing issues such as bullying diversity and being an individual through literature and activities at monthly assemblies. I hope this proves to be a successful way to bring to light some very serious issues.

    Being a former student at Myford I know how well the school runs. Mrs. Lev who no longer works at the school was an amazing principal. The current principal Ms. Fedderly (many reviewers have talked about her) has done an OK job running the school. However the school is still doing great. More maintenance should be done on the grass fields but in terms of test scores the school has done well. It has won 2 California Distinguished School awards and I expect it to win some more in the near future. Have your child attend this school!

    I also think that there are some bullying situations happening at Myford. I hope Ms. Fedderly can take it seriously and encourage all kids to be friendly loving caring and to play with each other fairly. It is even more important than a high API.

    We have been delighted with Myford from K through 5th. The teachers are dedicated and exceptionally caring. The education is solid and considers a child's individual needs. Sadly the class sizes increased this year with budget changes in the state but the quality of care has remained. From Mrs. Nedderson to Mrs. Ayers Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Kilgore and more we are very grateful for the great schooling our child has received.

    This school has an issue with kids being bullied and Ms. Fedderly overlooks such. Plus their is a language barrier with the parents although I'm not how Ms. Fedderly addresses them. I'm sure this is why the parent below has brought up the circumstance. The teachers this year also seem like they are only there for the paycheck except for some seasoned teachers this year. We ned to get rid of the bad teachers and replace them with teachers who truly care. Most parents don't know half the time what their child is doing in class. I personally think Ms. Fedderly should require a teacher to post such literature online in a web page format.

    This is the best school! The parents teachers and staff care about the children and their education is priority. The neighborhood is so supportive as well despite the economic turn down.

    I think they do a great job of continuing to drive the students hard yet in a fun and exciting manner. All the projects that they do is a testament of that. Also the school and their staff are very organized.

    This has been a great school for my son. They have a great aftercare program onsite. Most of his teachers have gone the extra mile to make sure that he understands his subjects and will do well in later grades.

    My daughter is in second grade at this School. The best thing that I like regarding this school is that the school emphasizes a lot in reading and loving books. A kindergarten student is able to read the level of the first grade books by the end of this year. I know each kid is different in learning capabilities but I have seen this progress in reading for not only my daughter but also her cousins who are in the same school in different grades. The teachers have extra patience I think. I seriously do not have to worry about the academic programs that the school offers as it is rated excellent. I do not have to worry about teaching my daughter seperately after all she learns at school. The parent involvement is so high that I sometimes feel guilty not able to get involved too much. The Principal is wonderful.

    Both my children are at Myford. Myford is a great school. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The teachers and the principle are very open to technology. The principal is kind and wise. She is a great example of a leader. The parents are very involved in the school. I am very thankful for have Myford our home school.

    My children have been at Myford since the day it opened. Mrs. Lev is a wonderful principal. The staff is amazing with three wonderful ladies in front - Erica Carla and Erin. The teachers are all so well qualified and each teacher my children have had has worked to meet my child's needs.

    The leadership of Nancy Lev makes Myford a fantastic example of how education works! The teachers are the finest I've seen. The facilities are sensational. The onsite Child Development Center provides a wonderful after school program. Myford Elementary is a phenomenal school.
