For the most part, this is a fantastic school. My kids are doing well academically. However, there are mom cliques. The moms drive their kid’s relationships and try to keep groups together to where others are shunned. It is kind of disturbing.
My daughter is entering 2nd grade this year. We have been blessed with teachers Mrs. Faulkner and Mrs. Boeker as co-teachers for both kindergarten and first grade. They are wonderful! The school has daily P.E. including both Zumba class and Sammy Circuit which I really appreciate as p.e. has been cut in so many schools. Our experiences with the principal, Mrs. Holliman, have been very positive. She is very competent, personable, and accessible. The PTA is large and raises a ton of money for things like electronics, P.E., and great events like the Harvest Festival. There are many parents that regularly volunteer in the classroom so there are always many hands on deck. We love this school! Moving to El Dorado Hills and enrolling here is one of the best decisions we have made as a family.
This is a fantastic school. We have been transferred 5 times and gone to many schools. Teachers are fantastic, concerns are addressed. Everyone works together to make sure the kids can be successful. Parent involvement is great. I am beyond pleased. I am a former teacher and parent to 3 kids. Pleasing me isn't always easy. This school has done it. I have faith in the California school system again...whew.
Watch out...you think you'll be getting a top-notch education and professional staff because of the ratings and area the school is located in, but you're not. The calm and helpful demeanor is a facade. Administration has the reputation of "How can I NOT help you?" The teaching staff is just mediocre. There will be people who have a good experience here and there, but not the masses. We're all wondering: "Where are the exceptional teachers we were expecting?" They should be drawn to this school, but something (or someone) is holding them back. The most efficient and positive person who NEVER had a "bad moment" was the front office manager. She left a couple of years ago. The only time you will know what kind of mood or effort you're going to get from anyone else who works here is the exact moment you're there to volunteer. Outside of that time, they quickly forget how to show respect to the kids and parents unless it's the second they're being given something.
