    Pauma is a great school! The whole staff is very helpful and happy. My son's teacher was very helpful and easy to reach. She always returned my phone calls at the end of the day! Pauma has a lot to offer for a small school. I always recommend this school to my friends for the family atmosphere. We love Pauma!

    This is a wondeful school. The principal is very involved with the students and teachers and really cares about each child. The teachers and support staff seem to be the same. Our son blossomed in this environment. The staff seemed to focus on his strengths and encourage him which gave him a desperately needed confidence boost. We are sad to see the principal move on but hope the new one will keep the school going in the same direction.

    Pauma School is out of program improvement one of only 4 in the state to make it. The scores continue to rise. The teachers are qualified and caring it's a nice mix of new and experienced teachers. The principal is a strong leader with her focus on children and their safety and success. Their next goal is CA Distinguished School.
