Great! Its a public school that is more like a private school. The PTA and community bring in lots of money enabling many programs.
My child has attended Arroyo for two years. I am very impressed with the leadership of the school, the dedication of the staff to both learning and social development, and the level of cognitively challenging rigor that the instruction provides. When we first moved to the area, we had considered a neighboring school which also had a lot to offer. So far, I'm very happy that we ended up keeping our child at this school.
As the other reviewer stated, the school is overrated. What they don't tell you is that the Blue Ribbon was received years ago, and that the school can keep it forever without having to be reevaluated for it each year. The writing program is quite dismal, and the curriculum is not challenging. This year we did have one of those "dud" teachers, and it made our school year miserable. I have since withdrawn my child from Arroyo. Private school is the better option, and it is true that so many parents in the Arroyo district opt to send their kids to private school. In the private school we have enrolled in, the education is superior and the child thrives in a socially welcoming and academically challenging environment.
This has been my son's first year at Arroyo. He is in kindergarten and we have had a wonderful year thus far. There is a high parent participation which always helps children to feel involved. The PTA has developed a variety of fund raisers which allows valuable programs to continue despite budget cuts. In this year alone Arroyo was voted one of the 10 top schools in Orange County. I am sure in every school there will be teachers who do not jive will with particular students. In fact I heard many rumors that my sons teacher was not one of the favorites. Well, I am still unsure what the negative press was based on. My son is making great gains in preparation for first grade and his teacher has been very available and my son really enjoys being in her class. In my opinion Arroyo is a 10!
