This school is amazing and has some many experienced teachers. They also teach science in 1st grade!
Our experience has exceeded our expectations. It's a great school with families who support each other and teachers who are involved, engaged, and dedicated to giving each child the support they need to succeed. The kids have opportunities to participate in after school activities like band, choir, and running club, have a really great art program in many of the classrooms (run by volunteers), enjoy computer and library time each week, and love doing their PE classes every week. We are extremely happy with the entire school - teachers, staff, and administration!
One things I noticed about all the positive reviews here is that they are very vague. My son started kindergarten at Foulks Ranch and the teacher was so awesome. She was the perfect combination of structure and gentleness. She seemed to really care for each one of her students. The principal at that time was always engaging with the kids in the morning. The vice principal then was Mr. Beard, we really miss him even my son misses him. He really liked both of them. They are no longer there unfortunately. He had the same teacher for two of his grades which was really good because we really liked her as well. Unfortunately, I have watched the slow deterioration of what was once a great school. One of the teachers he had was terrible. She would allow bullying it is allowed in the classrooms and on the playground it is out of control. The principal is hardly around and the vice principal only seems to look out for the children who's parents are bringing money into the school. I have seen him and a few of the teachers speak rudely to the children and was told about some incidences that sound to me like humiliation. It is just like one review here said, the children are treated like numbers, most of the children get honor roll and their are teachers there that talk down to their students. I am no longer keeping my child at this school. He absolutely hates going to school everyday now except to see his friends. He use to enjoy school and his teachers and the principals. Not anymore sadly. Use to be a great school.
I'm a parent of two children who currently attend Foulks Ranch. We've been at the school a total of 4 years. I am completely satisfied with the school, from the teachers to administration. When we moved to Elk Grove, we specifically bought our home in the area so my kiddos could attend Foulks Ranch.
