Community Rating & Reviews

    This school fosters community -- among the students and parents alike. While it's not a small school per se (360 kids) it feels like it. Class sizes are low teachers take great care to get to know the students and families.

    One kid just graduated (with a passion for Shakespeare because of a stellar 5th grade teacher) and one is still there (and developed a love of reading from a warm and motivational 2nd grade teacher). Miraloma is a happy friendly and engaging place. The principal teachers and support staff try to meet the needs of every student. The parent community is active at all levels. There are always parents around helping in the class rooms or the snack program. The PTA is well organized and fund raising is effective so the school offers ceramics poetry drama dance PE and reading intervention. The after school programs are wonderful. You can't go wrong sending your kids here.

    My son attends Miraloma entering the 1rst grade. So far our experience has been great. Miraloma has a very strong community with parents that are very involved and create an environment for success. The teachers and faculty our great. The PTA raises a decent amount of money to fund extra programs including PE arts literacy and math experts and lower class room sizes.

    My son (and only child) is starting kinder garden at this school and so far everyone from staff have been very helpful polite and have welcomed us in the best way they can. The principal has two children ( I think) attending to this school which that itself says a lot and gives me confidence that he will be in good hands. At orientation I got to meet his teacher the classroom and facilities and so far I"M LOVING this school for my son. I'm happy I picked Miraloma even though it wasn't my first pick I am happy that things happened this way. Very satisfied!

    The parent-teacher community is wonderful. The school itself is a bright happy place - my spirits lift just walking in the doors. Everyone is always smiling. The principal is very accessible he walks the halls and yards every day and knows every child by name. It's a special place.
