This is NOT in any way a great school. They never send home work home, never send school books and they don't communicate with you very well about your child unless you are of Hispanic descent. I can't wait to take my child out of this school. Unless you are Hispanic, do NOT send your child here!

This is a wonderful community school. The children are here to learn and are highly participating, the parents are involved (there is a community center on campus, even), the teachers are dedicated and highly trained, the administration is supportive and fair, the community cares about the school and the school cares about its community. Excelencia is a gem.

Excelencia is the best school to be a student council president for. I love this school and there are no words to describe what this school means to me.
