    We are a new family to Solano School. We have been quite happy with what goes on at the school. We have been greeted with warm smiles and open arms. Information comes readily and the most important thing is that are children come home talking and excited about thier school day and all that has gone on. They love all the teachers and staff the playground the classes and even the cafeteria food. We are very happy with our decision to take our children to Solano School in the Osborne School District in Phoenix Arizona

    I am a former student. My daughter has been at Solano the last 2 yrs. We did have issues in 3rd grade. However Mrs. Epps handled them right away. My daughter did not have another issue. She is now in 4th grade. All the teachers know her. They think she is a wonderful student. My daughter will talk about how great her day was and the teachers are wonderful. I would not remove her from this school at all. It has not changed since I went there. Its wonderful

    This school does have a lot of good teachers who work really hard with their students. Unfortunately there are also a lot of issues with disrespect and violence on the part of the students and parents. That's why I can't give this school five stars. Safety comes first in my book.

    Every Year I fill out an out of district form for my daughter so that she may attend Solano. I do so because the quality of the education she is receiving is challenging and rewarding for her. The teachers staff and administrators are wonderful and caring. I feel very confident about my daughter's security while at school. I also appreciate how cultural events and awareness is promoted year round. Basically I am confident that Solano school is contributing to my daughter's growth physically academically and socially in a positive manner that I as a single father of two work very hard at each day. To the Solano Teachers staff and administration I say Thanks. Sincerely Alfred Lopez Sr.
