    After my children graduated from Ramona Elementary School they have became more rude because of poor discipline at this school. I hope that the principal Ms. Wong would pay more attention to student. If this is not possible I think the school should change principal.

    This is an old but special school. The teachers are so dedicated. You have young energetic teachers as well as great experienced teachers that have been there for over 30 years. Mr. Hanford was my mom's teacher. He is a great teacher. Mr. Zehm is also amazing. Too bad they only have 2 male teachers. The female teachers are super. I have great memories of this school and so does my mom. I'm so glad that my two children attend this school. I hope they have Mr. Hanford before he retires.

    Ramona Elementary has fantastic teachers and students. The PTA is always looking for more parent/volunteer involvement. With more volunteers the school can have more family fun programs.

    This school has a great early special education program that starts out children at the preschool age. Wonder full teachers who believe in the program and are helpful in getting the right services for your childs specific needs.

    Ramona Elementary for the most part is a good school. I believe however through my dealings with them they are understaffed and overworked.

    This is a wonderful school! The teachers here have a lot of years teaching and it shows. It may not be pretty to look at on the outside but the staff and teachers are perfect and care about their students! Love Mrs. Brown and Ms. Belzner! Your children and your children will love them!
