Esperanza Elementary School 4

We love this school! Although it is a title 1 school, the principal is great! She is accommodating and responsive. I have had 2 children at this school now and overall, they were both happy. Our misdle child is entering 4th grade and our youngest will attend kindergarten there. The curriculum could be more challenging and we did not care for our daughter's 2nd grade teacher, Ms. K, however, the principal moved her to another classroom with Mrs. Schneider and she enjoyed the rest of the school year. They have an excellent free before and after school program and teachers are very involved with the students. The school is safe and the campus is nice. The office staff is very informative and the teachers know all the students on campus. Even the librarian is involved with all the students. There isn't constant turn over and the main reason the school has a lower rating is due to lack of funding and free lunches. If you are fine with diversity and are an involved parent, you will like this school.

Mrs. Sepuka is by far the best Principal we have had the pleasure of working with. She is genuine, responsive, involved and accomodating. She truly cares about the students and clearly enjoys what she does for a living. She puts the students first and ensures that any issues are addressed promptly. She understands that each child is an individual and that each child learns differently. She posseses excellent leadership skills and is always professional.

Some of the teachers are great! Mrs. Schneider is one of the best teachers there. Also, Ms. Crowley is rigorous and expects 6th graders to earn their grades.

Academically, thisnschool could be more challenging. The curriculum needs improvement, however, the school does offer assistance for students that struggle and they have an excellent before and after school program, free of charge.

The teachers and principal teach students respect, but some students are not learning as they should at home. It would help if more parents were involved.

I feel the staff here at Esperanza are setting a great example for the students. Unfortunately, some student don't have good examples at home and bring the negative behavior to school. And to try and correct the behavior for a non-parent role is very difficult. Keep trying staff!

Sadly I hope that there is a different 6th grade team by the time my student get into 6th grade.

I would like to thank the entire 4th grade team for be so supportive to my daughter this school year. As a parent and an employee I am very appreciative for the help in and out of the classroom. I know that we are all busy, but the are not just an asset to me for my daughter but also as a coworker. Thank You to Mrs Zazueteta-Jordan, Mrs Ozment and to Mr Berger :-D

My daughter has been in this school since she has been in school. She is an excellent student and is being taught by great teachers every year. This year she is in 4th grade and now gas 3 teachers. The 4th grade team at Esperanza is an awesome team that work together to help all their students excel!

My son currently attends kindergarten and he is reading way above his grade level. The teachers are very supportive, the office staff is friendly and helpful and I've never had a negative experience there. Common Core is being taught, even at kindergarten level, and though it is different from how we learned, the teachers have been trained and able to show the benefit of it. Some parents just don't want to listen. I've had no problems with Esperanza. Parents need to stop criticizing and get involved!
