The teachers are conscientious and challenge the students. The staff are very helpful and supportive.

I love the developmental preschool program at Loma Linda, and my daughter couldn't be happier. The bus is a favorite of mine, until the kids are on break.... since my daughter sits at the end of the drive waiting for a bus that is not coming. I love the projects and the participation within. I love that the teachers, nurse.... the staff entirely are so attentive. My daughter had a mark on her face from a sleep study the night before a regular school day (from the leads they have to wear at the hospital) and the nurse called to inquire whether maybe a child had bitten her, or to see if I was even aware of the mark. In my opinion, this says allot about the staff at Loma Linda! Thank you Loma Linda..

Loma Linda School and their staff have always been and continue to be very supportive of our special needs child. This level of care shows years of experience with special needs or other educational challenges. Other than coming to our home to educate her, we can't think of anything else for the school to improve upon.

Great School. I have been on site on more that one occasion. Everytime, I have seen teachers and administrators instill courtesy values in the children. My child has had Great Teachers that care in every grade level. Expectaions and Goals are set every year, and monitored thru-out the year with parents. Parents are encouraged to participate in all areas of their childs education. The school constantly is striving to improve in all areas, to meet the needs of the children. Kudos to the entire Staff.

Excellent! This school is a hidden gem with dedicated and experienced professionals, friendly children and families. The neighborhood is going to be the next Willo district with mid-century homes and caring neighbors. I am happy we moved here from Northern California and our children attend.

There is no discipline at this school, the dress code is only enforced on some kids while others are overseen. Us parents are always paying for one thing or another and we never see where the money goes to! The principal is not very nice or welcoming-I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE! MY KIDS NO LONGER GO TO THIS SCHOOL!

My son attended the developmental preschool at the site. I was not impressed to put it mildly. My son received minimal services at best.

Loma Linda School is great! My daughter is in All-day Kinder and she is getting all the attention that she needs. She is a little advanced from the other students, and the teacher gives assignments for me to work with her at home. This way, she can grow at her own pace. I love it!

Uniforms are great but all children are not required to follow the guidelines.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
