Not very good. My kid was new and no one told us about science camp. I had to ask and they made it seem like it was going to be too much money for me to pay now. They need to let new 6 graders know as soon as they register. Yard duties are awful. They punish when they didn’t even see what the kids were doing. And normally the kids that were bad don’t get into trouble. They just do not supervise the kids. Pick another school. Some good teachers, but some really bad ones.
Teachers are very good. Ms.Porter, the principal as well as other staff (not teachers) need to be trained on how to treat the children and the parents with respect and dignity.
My children have attended this school since they were in kinder. The school was a safe environment that focused on students individuality, grades, community and family. I am happy with the district changes and I find MRE teachers are good. I am not comfortable with the schools general philosophies. The principal has created a environment which diminishes the unique qualities which made Marengo Ranch stand out. Ms. Porter appears to only be focused on attendance stats and scores. Assemblies, parent educational nights and grade class structures are put together poorly without direction. Programs such as sciences, music, the arts and other educational enrichment classes are not a priority and get little direction or attention. Yard duty personal are either not trained or they are managed incorrectly. Bullying by both children and yard duty personal have increased. I would recommend anyone who is moving into the area to look at Lake Canyon Elementary School. It has become what Marengo Ranch School used to be.
My children have been attending this school for 7 years. The teachers have been caring, professional and always made themselves available for parent questions or concerns. I've been impressed with how many of the teachers spend their own time finding ways to teach and capture students interest within the strict limitations given to them by the administration. In addition, the principal is supportive and active with both staff and students. The teachers have made every attempt to teach my children, not simply teach to a test. My children have flourished in this school.
