    My two kids going on the 3rd came/come to Workman. My son is now in 8th grade a Gate student and my other child as well. Honor students and VERY proud to say they started @ Workman Elementary. Teachers are great and the principal is AMAZING! She cares about the kids and goes above and beyond for them! People always have negative things to say but Iam a parent who is VERY involved with my children. I STRONGLY believe that has helped my kids become who they are today. We can't expect the teachers to do it all then blame them for our kids academic faults. Workman teachers work together with us. That's ALL we or at least I can ask for! Keep up the AMAZING work WORKMAN EL.

    Workman elementry is an overall horrible school with overbearing(in a bad way) teachers

  • (6 years ago)

    I apologize --- in my previous review I gave praises to 'Ms. Guerrero.' However the principal's name is obviously 'Ms. Gallego.' My apologies to you Ms. Gallego - you are doing a great job with this school.
