    I went to 93rd when it was first built. It was a wonderful school. One of my teachers Mrs. Marilyn Douroux passed this year. She was my 5th grade teacher. We always kept in touch. I am now 57 years old. Praise God for a wonderful school and staff and parents.

Mitwalli and i think she is great!

    93rd Street Elementary provides rigorous instruction that not only meets the CA standards but also challenges the students to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. I have only experienced excellent teachers at this school and know they come prepared each day with fantastic lessons full of hands on and experiential learning. Both of my children have blossomed here. The principal has an excellent relationship with the kids and they strive to please her. Amazing!!

    The administration teachers and support staff are committed to the overall well being of the children at 93rd Street Elementary. In a community with few resources they provide tangible examples of hard work respect and commitment. I applaud their efforts. I am proud to have my son attend 93rd Street Elementary.

    I used to go to 93rd and I had a pretty good time there. I liked all my teachers and I never really had trouble with my friends. But I think it was a bit too strict when we ate in the cafeteria. We'd get in trouble if we talked too loud! But other than that I liked going to this school.

    Ninety-Third Street school is a wonderful school. There are high expectations for students.

    The principals hand's are tied when it comes to unruly children in the school. Academically she runs a very tight ship. My students who are attending the school currently are doing exceptionally well on their grade levels.
