    The new Principal is awesome and we love most of the teachers. I have three children and all are happy this year. We have had a joke of a teacher in the past. She was lazy and had all the parents and the other teacher do everything. Funny as she just won teacher of the year. This made me wonder if she was the only person on the board for choosing the Teacher of the Year. People literally sit at baseball and discuss how burned out she is. On another note the classrooms are spacious and the playgrounds awesome. Lunch is outside for all grade levels and the kids have plenty of time outside during the day. My oldest is advanced and challenged daily. Overall we are happy and won recommend this school to anyone moving in.

    This is our second year in this area and we love this school! Beautiful campus dedicated teachers and staff. The students have art science PE computers beautiful library. If any students feel that there is not enough activities the enrichment programs are very good; my son is part of the martial arts program. He is very happy here!

    My now adult children attended Ashley Falls and continued through to Carmel Valley Middle and Torrey Pines High School. I was very happy with Ashley Falls but I must say that a common thread running throughout all the schools in this high performance affluent area is to just complain! My experience at Ashley Falls was always positive. The teachers were very good and my kids received a top-notch education that prepared them for college and graduate school. My advice to parents is to just let the teachers and the school do their job and support them. Quit complaining about homework and evaluate your own after school activities. Are those activities taking too much time? Teachers are following district guidelines and too often they have to be the front line of the battle against parents over time wasting trivia. Please work with and not against your child's school. We know you all have post-graduate degrees and you make lots of money-but get over it and be the role model-not the problem.

    Great school with a high level of parental involvement. The school funds teachers for enrichment classes (art music PE science) paid for by parents and fund raisers. Teachers learning values and KIDS are the hightest priority at Ashley Falls.
