Sending my son & daughter to Las Palmas Elementary school was by far the best choice we could have made in their education! Our homeschool (when my son started Kinder) was a brand new school also we have since moved to another city so we now commute to LP but I would not trade LP for a new school facility or convince ever. Simply fantastic bilingual & multicultural education just ask the many teachers in the CUSD district that send their kids here.

my child is in the preschool program. i done feel he is advancing at all compared to when he attended lobo elementary. also the parent teacher communication is horrible. i never know when things are going on with my child until it is either too late or the day before. i missed him singing because i was not notified by his teachers. he was upset i wasnt there.
Las Palmas is an amazing school! What a gift to provide our children with a second language at such a young age. Awesome teachers support sense of community ! It doesn't get any better than this
We love our school! The teachers have high expectations and provide an interactive and collaborative learning environment. There is a wonderful feeling of family at our school. There is an active PTA and a very engaged principal. It is a very diverse community which we love! The dual language program is a real plus for the community and most important the students. To be competitive in the 21st century bilingualism and being open minded is a must! LP could be a bit stronger in technology for both kids and staff. I am looking forward to teacher integrating the Common Core in the classrooms this year.
A great public immersion school with quality and committed teachers administrators and parents providing a great quality education on a limited budget. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars has nothing to do with the academic program; the facilities could use upgrading but that is an issue with many California schools due to the lack of priority funding for education. Don't be swayed by test scores; smart kids do really well here and in my opinion are much better off here than in higher testing schools because they learn a second language at a time when they are primed for it and also learn to deal with a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures.
Tight community lots of love! Teachers are excellent and their cultural backrounds have inspired the school to learn more about all different countries and their cultures.. We are simple and humble but a new library would be amazing!! And muuuuch appreciated!
Las Palmas is a terrific school with dedicated teachers principles and staff. All of my children have had a wonderful experience at Las Palmas. We will be sad when it is time to move on! Great school!
I love that our school provides an education to a diverse population yet we come together as a school. I enjoy coming to work everyday.
Great class size dedicated teachers involved families and an immersion program!
Las Palmas is a wonderful school. We have the best teachers teaching our students to be bi-lingual in a multi-cultural community. We love the staff and the parents that are so committed to making this school the best elementary school in California.
Las Palmas is a wonderful school that promotes intercultural awareness and education and fosters a welcoming community attitude. The teachers are enthusiastic to participate in the Spanish immersion program and really put extra effort and love into their teaching. The children's basic educational requirements are enriched with many creative and unique programs and opportunities for learning beyond the standard curriculum.
The Dual Immersion Program at Las Palmas is second to none! It's truly amazing how much parental support is at school as well. Staff rocks principle rocks!
I love the diversity of both language and culture that is taught at Las Palmas but it is the excellence of the teachers their commitment to the immersion program and the love they have for the students that sets this school apart!
My son comes home happy and excited about learning every day from Las Palmas. Every member of the staff are helpful and positive every time I have a question or occasional concern. I have never heard a single negative comment about Las Palmas from anyone you has attended the school in the last 2 decades they have been running the Spanish Immersion program. I am so lucky and blessed to have my son in this school I can't say enough wonderful things about the program!
The best teachers the best family environment - everyone is valued and included.
It has an incredible group of families from all over the world. Who all share the same vision. A cohesive and loving community. And They are all learning spanish as a second language. What an advantage for our children.
Las Palmas is an amazing school I love it. I have a daughter in Kindergarten and she has been in the school for only 3 weeks and is already speaking some Spanish. Las Palmas feels like an extension of our family. Diane McDonald
The parent teacher student co-operation. Spanish emmersion program AND the entire faculty make this school top notch. We LOVE Las Palmas School in San Clemente CA !
My son just completed his second year at Las Palmas. He loves it and so do I. The curriculum is exciting and challenging. There are many special enrichment programs. The parent community is more diverse than others in this area (a plus!) and very involved. Our principal and staff are terrific. My son is well on his way to being bilingual and biliterate. It's hard to believe this is free public education!
Incredible learning opportunites are offered at Las Palmas. Because students are learning in two languages teaching methods must go above and beyond what CA State standards suggest. Organization of Thought (thinking maps) are taught in Kinder! The staff and teachers are the top picks in the district. Once at Las Palmas no one wants to leave. Education is superb parent involvement is extremely high and the kids are educated far beyond their peers at other schools. (Longevity tests scores prove it.) Awesome education all around. (I feel I can compare fairly my child attended another CUSD school to begin with.)
