    This school just received a CA Distinguised Award. What an accomplishment! I'm glad to see other people recognize what a great school this is because we've known what a gem it is for quite sometime.

    Foskett Ranch has great teachers and staff who are truly there to help each child succeed! My boys love their school and their teachers; it has been a great school for our children since they first opened their doors five years ago and new this year Foskett Ranch Elementary School is now recognized by the California Department of Education as a California Distinguished School. The kids of Foskett Ranch are taught to be great students and great citizens. You will always encounter a smiling face and respectful tone.

    Both my children have attended Foskett Ranch. Out oldest daughter has moved onto middle school and this school made the academic transition easy for her. This school is the only one our youngest daughter has ever attended and we have felt the teachers and programs to be top rate!

    All of the teachers are wonderful! There is a lot of parent involvement in the classrooms. There is good communication between the Principal the teachers and the parents. I feel like I know what is happening at the school.

    I love this school and am so sad that my daughter is moving onto middle school. The office staff is incredible and very organized. The principal is always willing to listen and makes a great effort in resolving any problems. The teachers are great and genuinely care about the kids. The parent involvement at this school is phenomenel! I enjoyed volunteering at the school and know that it made a difference in my daughter's education. I cannot say enough nice things about this school....it is simply the Best!

    This is a great school with a fantastic staff! The parents are fantastic! The PTO offers many activities for the students to participate in after school. I will be sad when my daughter has to leave!

    This school is anwsome my son really likes it.

  • (7 years ago)

    My family and I have been very pleased with FRE. Our son excelled in his classroom setting and his teachers did a great job even with the high teacher/child ratio for Kindergarten. Being involved in volunteering and school events has lent a special understanding and realization that we all must work together for a school to be the best it can be. Also volunteering has facilitated the opportunity to get to know most of the teachers throughout the school and I'm looking forward to the years to come. It's just getting better and better.

    I am disappointed in the school so far we have no supplies for the kids art paper writing tools we (parents) are constantly having to supply the entire class with glue sticks paper all art supplies. We have a lot of 1st year teachers I like them however they are lacking the ability to help the struggling kids. I am very active in my classroom but still feel like I am left out in the dark when it comes to improving my childs performance

    Foskett is a good school but I do not like how the school is not diverse at all or the staff. Other than that I do not have many complaints about the school.
