This school has been a major disappointment. My child is not receiving an acceptable education at this school, and basically wastes 7 hours a day there. I was flat out lied to and strung along by a certain staff member regarding a 'gifted program' (which did not exist, although I was led to believe it did), and when I have spoken to him on the phone he is very short with me and acts as if I'm wasting his time. Another issue is that problems are not immediately addressed...if you have an issue, you as a parent will have to work hard to get any type of response or resolution. This school year was the first and will be the last year that my child attends this school. On a good note, my son's teacher is great and tries to do his best with the little resources he has available.
My son has been going to Santa Rosa since August. This school is nothing more than day care for working parents. The teachers are stand-offish, unorganized,unskilled, and leave alot to be desired. I am really suprised at the poor organization of all their programs and record keeping. I will not have my son continue next year in this environment
My son really loved going to school at Santa Rosa. He's also learning a lot of basic skills in his preschool class and will be more than prepared to enter Kindergarten.
My nephew goes to the school and my sister is very unhappy with the quality of teaching and is leaving the area for that specific reason.
We've only been in maricopa a couple of months, and would have really liked to give the school a chance to catch up with the growth. Santa rosa elementary is a major disappointment. They seem more focused on school uniforms than academics. The administration and teaching staff are friendly, but extremely unorganized and borderline incompetent. Our daughter is in the 1st grade, and has yet to learn anything new. We feel forced to put her back in the kyrene school district next year. Bus transportation is provided to kyrene los lagos, which isn't is highly rated as her former kyrene school, but scores much higher than this school. Plus, atleast they have an art and music program.
This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for most kids, but our children need accelerated learning opportunities which have not been available. Its music and art program is less than mediocre (there is none). The caliber of most of the teachers has been shockingly poor. It has therefore given none of the advantages of a new school, with all of the disadvantages. I can recommend it only in contrast to no school at all.
The teachers and staff seemed stressed out and do not interact well with the children. I hope this school can get it together and improve soon.
