The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I do love loma vista but as a parent i wud like to see more parent participation but the school allows lil to none. As of helping prepare things for certain occasions. The parent room should be allowed to stay open throu the day. My experience from in the parent room from last year wasnt any good to me we could have been doing more. But since our school is on a budget they cannot have someone stay thru the day not even a volunteer. Thia year i refuse to waste my time doing nothing in a room where parents gossip all morning. That is not productive i rather do somethings that would benefit our school and children. I wud also like to see more fundrasing that wud give profits to the school. But i was told they cannot do thatno budget. And for kinder they dont even have a day to acknowledge there work and have a mini celebration because of lack of funds . The teachers do care but there can be more improvements to get more parents involved in the school.

    Loma Vista can be a great school but unfortunately It isn't. The teachers and staff work very hard to present a curriculum that is challenging and will prepare the students for their future. They collaborate regularly in order to ensure that all students are given the same opportunities for learning. However the school has an atmosphere which lacks the support from the parents both on campus and off. There is little support from home in regards to the students' education. With the exception of delivering coolers to classrooms for "Breakfast in the Classroom " there are very few volunteers on campus who actually interact with the students. There are Community Representatives on campus but no one including the principal really knows what they do or when they are on campus. The school has a brand new library that hasn't been used in several years no computer lab and no extracurricular activities. The campus is dirty resources are scarce and morale is low. I believe that the principal as the leader of the school has the responsibility of setting the standard for the environment on campus and off. Unfortunately she lacks the ability to motivate all stakeholders.

    I would probably not be posting this had I not received notification of a prior review. I am sad because these reviews are important yet we stay quiet. I cannot say enough of Loma Vista. I have 7 children all of whom attended this great school. My last child just culminated to middle school with honors on June 7 2013. Everyone knows everyone. When I hear my daughter speak of the principal as if they were friends and see how she (the principal) interacts with the students is great. Everyone I've dealt with staff wise has been great. If there is a lack of parent participation that in no way should be against Loma Vista. Teachers and staff are doing what they need to be to make sure our children are safe and getting a good education. I cannot say enough of the after-school program. My kids have been involved in all sports possible even running marathons without any cost to me. Loma Vista excels in working with the students and in making sure they are there to learn. I say if you need more parent participation make sure you emphasize that during your parent-conference meetings. With that said Thank you Loma Vista for helping me raise and educate all 7 of my children.

    Good school my child attends this school and I can say that most teachers in this school work really hard with their students and make them better students day by day. My meetings with my child teachers have been very pleasant and my childs grades are outstanding.

    Loma Vista is an absolutely wonderful school. I have visited this school on dozens of occasions. Every time I am greeted by friendly and helpful faculty and staff. From the teachers to the principals they are a dedicated family of hard-working educators. I would be proud to teach at this school full-time and delighted to send my children here.

    My husband and I attended this school and it was a great school back then. Now it is terrible. From the teachers to the principal. My child is currently attending and I am in the process of sending him to a different school. If you have another choice besides this school dont think it twice send them somewhere else.
