My grandson has attended Estella Vista from first through fourth grade. He absolutly loves school, makes honor role regularly, and has enjoyed all of his teachers. He appears to be well challenged and never frustrated. I've seen creativity in the teaching styles throughout these years, also. I highly recommend Estella Vista Elementary School.

More challenging work is given. Teachers are geting parents involved in childrens work. It is a really big change.

When I have a concern, phone calls are returned very quickly. The administration worked quickly to resolve my concerns.

It was refreshing to come to a school with such positive people. The staff is enthusiastic and love what they are doing.

Estrella Vista is a cool school. Kids have fun while they are learing. I have cool teachers who use technology all the time and the food is good.

My children attend this school and it has been nothing but problems since day 1. The school wants to have a parent conference for any and everything that happens (ex. not listening so had to choose step4) why is a parent requiered to drive to the school and have a 10min conference about that when a simple phone call could be made? They also will not let your child return to school until you do this ridiculous conference! There is NOT good communication between the parents/teachers or the staff for that matter. I would definatly NOT recommend this school. I will be making sure to take my kids out of this school after this year ends. VERY DISSAPOINTED.....

I feel this school should be rated 5 stars! I enjoy working with the teachers as well the students. They are friendly and cooperative. The curriculum is acceptable for my child's age group. We really enjoy the parent involvement that the school provides. The teachers really try to involve parents in all activities. Each teacher and principal are willing to work with each parent to enhance the academics of their child. i greatly appreciate this school!

I love this school! They do a lot of assemblies to reward achievements. The morning announcements are the best!! The teachers that my kids have, and have had, are excellent! They gear their teaching to the child's level. Many grades offer leveled classes for reading and math to benefit all students. I don't have to worry about my kids assignments being too easy or too difficult. Teachers are always willing to help the kids anyway they can. One of my kids even got into after school tutoring with his teacher because he needed to work on his writing skills. I could not ask for a better teacher! The PTSA is wonderful! They offer lots of opportunities for parents to get involved! The staff is warm and friendly, and will do anything they can to help.

My children have been at E.V since it opened. At first I was confused about their discipline program but as I learned more about it and was given an explanation by the teachers of how it works it actually makes sence to make the children take responsibility of their actions and make betters choices. I have been impressed lately of all the afterschool activities they have available and though there is no money to pay for after school tutoring, the teachers are actually volunteering to do it!! I am very happy with how friendly and ready to help everyone is from the moment I walk in the front office. The cafeteria staff is also very nice and when I eat with my children, I notice that the aides actually care when they see a child not eating their food. My children are being challenged and their grades are high. Good job!

I'm very pleased with the school, my daughter is being challenged and push to do her best. We must remember that we as parents have the reponsibility to help and teach at home too. She is happy and loves to go to school. For the first 3 quarters she holds perfect attendance and is a straight A student. Thanks! EV.

The principal and teachers do their best to help each student to reach their highest potential. They are helping us, and teaching our kids to be responsible for all their actions. I am thankful for all EV does.

I actually took my child out of this school. I was worried that my child was not getting the education she needed since they have to keep it at a level that all children can understand and some of them were really behind. Also I tried communicating with her teacher and was never successful. I am glad I made the choice to enroll her at Imagine schools at Avondale

I have been surprisingly pleased with the education my children have received so far. I was afraid if their learning surpassed the rest of the class, they would not be challenged, but the teachers have found ways to introduce more advanced curriculum for them. I am very happy with the teachers and principal. The only disappointment is sometimes school info doesn't get passed along. I'm also rather impressed with the success of the aforementioned 'disciplinary' system, although it may be different for higher grades.

It's a new school, I hope it improves. The disciplinary actions they take are different, my child however, adapted easily. I do feel that punishment is not the same for all. I know because my nephew also attends this school.

I am very disappointed with the lack of education my kids received at Estrella Vista. I feel they are academically behind and homework is not mandatory. I also have an issue with the way of they discipline the children. It is sad.

I rate the school a 3 for a first year there have been bumps. I have not been happy with teacher- parent relatinship. Needs to be worked on for 1st year teacher. Not handling kids picking on children the right way.
