    the worst school my son has been in to....the principal had a very rude attitude. the Psychologist...was the worst of all..i would never ever recommend this school to any one

    A child's education starts at home. Teachers specialize in teaching children and assist them in their educational development. Our child has and conitnues to be recognized as an over acheiver at Romona and his Teachers are good educators. Parents should be participating with their kids during homework time. checking kids classwork and always know what they are learning every week and always ask questions to kid/teacher when in doubt of school activities. Ramona Is a good school and it has a good lead the Principal. Thank you

    these teachers are when they are hired because they are constantly frustrated and aggressive towards the students. My son and daughter where both treated innapropiately by their teachers. This of course cause me great grief and anger because you trust that when you leave your children in their hands they will not be afraid to go to school. Seriously are these teachers really qualified to teach? They may know their material but do they know how to treat children?

    The students are allowed to bully other students without any consequences. This should not be the case.

    I was a teacher's aide at Ramona El and experienced first hand the style of teaching and its effectiveness. The school's policy on how t o teach the children allows for a very narrow window for new teaching styles. Many of the children at Ramona do not speak english as a first language and the school's remedy for that is to segregate the children which causes a very tense enviornment. The children that do speak english well or as a first language get left behind and none of the children live up to their potential. I would strongly recommend looking into another school.

    My son attended the school and he fell behind on what he was acheiving at his previous school. I do not like this school and I do not think anyone should send their children here.
