    I have a lot to say about this school but unfortunately my posts keep getting removed. I am sure due to the fact that the school would like others to think it is a great school. Great community yes terrible school!

    Last year was my son's first at David Lubin. I was very pleased with the inclusive feeling of community and parent involvement at the school. The communication from the school and PTG is very organized and helpful. The office staff is wonderful! Best of all our son learned a lot! I have heard wonderful things about the new school principal and am looking forward to seeing what positive contributions he will bring.

    This school is wonderful expect they offer no help for kids with learning disabilities and stone wall any attempts to provide testing for dyslexia and my daughters teacher had a very one size fits all style of teaching so my daughter has been held back we will hopefully have a different teacher this year. But even with all that said it is such a great school I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

    I love this school. Its been home now for 8 years. The teachers are fantastic. My kids have done quite well under the leadership at the school. The parent teacher group raises a lot of money to suplement programs that the school districts have cut. Its a wonderful community based school. I will be very sad when my youngest graduates.

    Great school! Very positive learning environment and PTG is very active in fundraising to supply arts/extras for students.

    I went here years ago kindergarten through six grade and the teachers are so amazing. The environment here is so friendly and it's a great school to enroll your children in. My sisters also went here with me and my mom had a blast as a participating parent you make a lot of memories with this school that will never quite leave you.

    I think Mountain Hill is an excellent school. Between the wonderful caring staff and the outside the box teaching there's no other school private or public that can compare. Keep up the good work!

    Excellent staff. The teachers are really committed to making sure the children have a well rounded education despite budget cuts. They have a great arts program and the facility is really nice. The principle seems to run the school with a firm but kind hand just what children of this age need. The parents are really involved with the school too. They were awarded the California Distinguished school this year too.

    Amazing teachers. I really feel like they care and connect with the pupils here. We toured a few other high stat schools and this take the cake by far. They have great fund raising events too which help to raise money for the arts etc... Keep up the good work

    David Lubin is an amazing school and we are so lucky to have our son there! The teachers are remarkable engaging experienced and caring. The staff is excellent - from Janitor to lunch Monitor to Office Staff to Librarian - these adults truly care about our kids and work to help them grow and learn daily. We couldn't ask for a better school! The parent involvement is impressive and the PTG funds amazing after school enrichment programs for the students. We are so grateful to David Lubin and everyone who makes it awesome!

    I am so pleased with the staff and programs at David Lubin. The after school enrichment programs that include everything from engineering with legos to landscape art chorus guitar and more. It's so rare to have so many electives for the kids in public schools today. The PTG is phenominal at raising funds to help fund the full-time librarian extra teacher's aides and the afterschool programs. I don't think there's a better school around that has so much diversity and achievement all rolled into one. It's wonderful.

    David Lubin is a wonderful neighborhood school. The structure from the principal combined with the wonderful teachers really add up to a successful school. The PTG is incredible when it comes to raising funds and contributing to the education of each child with field trip funds art teacher after school programs and music programs. Incredible school.

    David Lubin exceeds my expectations! My daughter recently graduated and my son is in the GATE program and actually comes home excited about his day. The parental involvement is astounding and the diversity makes everything just right.

    My son is a special needs child and requires lots of routine patience and understanding. He came as a kinder. I heard goods things about the teacher. I observed the class on occasions and was simply amazed how the teacher and aide brought out the best in each child. I was so concerned with the challenges that I didn't realize all the STRENGTHS my child has. Thank you.

    David Lubin is a wonderful neighborhood school - definitely the best school in east sacramento. The teachers are so dedicated. Many have or had their own children attend David Lubin. There is a wonderful art teacher a school garden cooking in the classroom an incredible library and librarian and a fantastic after school academy. I feel very fortunate that my children can go to this school.
