    The environment at this school has ruined my childs elementary school years. The kids bully each other something horrible at recess and it's no shocker they are learning it from their teachers. Mr. Marks does NOTHING to mediate situations. Good thing the teachers dont waste ANY time in class teaching anything that isn't asked heavily on the test!

    Tuscany Hills Elementary is an average school at best. The activities are stagnant and the kids are not very interested. Only money makers for the younger kids that havent figured out they dont enjoy most of them. Teachers there are hit and miss no in betweens. Unfortunately we suffered a couple bad teachers and we are paying the price for this BULLYING BY THE TEACHER! Not a happy parent. Principal gives you run around no effective management just CYA.

    We had 3 kids & 2 more kids currently in Tuscany Hills all our kids got a great start on their Education. Thanks to all the Teacher's. Mr Marks puts his heart & soul in his work. We are lucky to have amazing school in Lake Elsinore.

    My daughter has attended this school for 3 yrs and I have no complaints!! The teachers Care and will make time for students and parents. I love the weekly progress reports they tell you exactly what is happening with your child and how many assignments are missing in each subject. I have recieved teacher email address every year and used it!! The staff is very prompt on answering every question and offer many tutoring sessions on site. I really believe in this school faculty and parents. I will stay in this district as long as possible.

    We left the area for a few years and moved back. One reason we came back is so my younger kids could go to this school. The teachers really care and will work with you if your child needs help. They offer tutoring before school if needed. The principal is very nice with a calm demeanor. I really feel like he is there for the kids and not his ego as we experienced when we left the area. The front office is amazing! Some of the nicest and most helpful people. Leslie is awesome! We made the right choice coming back to this school. My kids are SO happy and doing much better now.

    I am so torn between Earl Warren and Tudcany Hills! Both are 10s and their community reviews positives far outweigh their negatives (though I am NOT taking the neg comments lightly!). One is closer but driving one exit up is really no big deal. I'm just so torn. My child is now going to a LE public school that is dual immersion (teaches them spanish) But it teaches the bare minimum with the other subjects. the ratings are in the 700s and my husb and I really care about STEM (science technology engineering math) and we want that to be taught young. So as much as I LOVE the fact they are learning a 2nd language and has excelled at it we absolutely need a school that goes HARDER IN STEM. I'm just torn. Wish I had a crystal ball.

    THES is a fantastic school. The office staff Principal Marks and the teachers are the best around. There is a reason why this school has the highest API in all of Riverside county and it is because of the dedication and encouragement of the staff the amount of parent involvement and most importantly the hard work of all the students. This school has such a fantastic energy to it and there are so many extra activities that the children get to enjoy year round. Thank you PTA parent volunteers support staff teachers and Principal Marks!

    The school is pretty good high API score and our daughter is doing well. I would give the school a score of 8.5 to 9.0. I'm very disappointed with the District though particularly the Superintendent in not standing up to the City regarding a proposed cell tower to be installed within feet of the school playground. Hopefully he'll grow a spine and do the right thing before it's too late. Also the PTA has proven useless as they're controlled by the District....definitely NOT a Parent Association.

    I agree! This school should rank a 10! The kids have earned the highest API in all of Riverside County. You can feel the positive energy at this school. Our girls love this school!! Go Coyotes!!

    Why does Tuscany Hills have a ranking of 9 when it has the highest test scores in all of South Riverside County? We deserve a 10!

    New to this district and we are already really disappointed. In comparision we notice; poor supervision and division during recess times very poor communication when trying to resolve concerns with principal (he is NOT willing to listen you are given a SOP rundown and a shoo out the door) no extra curricular activities overall there seems to be an abundance of negative behavior and bullying among the children starting even in younger grades! I think this is due to there not being a program in place like other districts already have teaching these children appropriate behaviors and how to deal with these new social situations. Really bummed out. Would love to hear any advice on where to go with our concerns.

    We have had two of our children attend Tuscany. It has been a great experience excellent teaching and an excellent PTA. The school has many events that include parents donuts with dad mom son bingo daddy daughter dance and ice cream socials. It is a family oriented school everyone knows each other. The only negative tons of home work great test scores though. The school deserves a 10!

    This is a excellent school..The Principal..teachers..staff and volunteers are wonderful...this is my daughter last year..but my son is starting kinder next year!!

    It's only the second week of school for my kindergartner and so far I am not impressed! Internal communication is lacking. I learned more about the principal's family at the kinder-tissue than I needed to know and information about what to expect on the first day was non-exsistant. We were lost on campus and no-one could tell us where to be. It was utter chaos. The teachers dress code is too relaxed (exposed tattoos) they don't all look like professionals who command the respect of their students. Some are dressed like they are going to the grocery store. If it were'nt for the name tags that we eventually noticed we would not have known who the teachers were. Overall I am nervous about this school.

    Tuscany Hills is an amazing school! The teachers work so hard! They have done an amazing job with my kids! They are also very friendly and approachable. The school sets high expectations but that's a good thing! That's why they do so well! I feel so lucky that my kids got to go to Tuscany! It's the best school around! Their scores are off the charts!

    I Agree Tuscany Hills Elementary School is an example of what all our schools should be. The staff is professional skilled and caring. I couldn't be more happy of the education my grandchildren received at this school.

    My children attended Tuscany Hills and I found it to be an outstanding school. The teachers and staff are dediccated to academic excellence and demonstrate a genuine interest in the welfare of the children as well as their families.

    The best public school my child has attended. The parent involvement is excellent. The teachers are committed to giving the kids the best education. The principle is very involved. I cannot say enough good things about this school.

    Love the new principal and the general feel of the school's atmosphere. It is such a happy place now. Everyone is always smiling and look like they really enjoy their jobs. What a great place to send my child for an education.
