This school was chosen for my children for one reason, excellence. My kids started in the Kindergarten class nearly 8 years ago. We have a 35 min. drive each way. Teachers are engaging and new students are very surprised how friendly the other students are.
I am impressed with how this school has developed into an "A for Arizona" school of excellence. The principal, Dr. Saliba, and the entire faculty are knowledgeable, professional, and really care for the students. Both our children are receiving a quality education with an emphasis 21st century skills. The school lives up to the Presidio family and we are proud to be part of it!
It has a program called Character Counts that emphasizes caring, citizenship, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, and fairness. All quality traits we want to see in our children as they grow up. Thank you Ms. Megan for carrying on this program at the school and in the classrooms.
The highly qualified teachers have shown their knowledge in the classes with both our children. We continue to be impressed with their ability to teach in a small classroom environment giving individual attention to all our children's classmates. Kudos to the new extracurricular sports programs added this year!
With the Academic Lab being open on weekends and the teachers holding study halls in their classrooms after the school day, my wife and I found that we have more quality time with our children. They both have actual homework, but it is very rarely overwhelming. Thank you teachers for making yourselves available beyond the school day!
I agree totally with the comment that said, the positive reviews are likely fake—the school is awful to good teachers and awful to students with learning challenges. They do a great job of PRETENDING to be a good school. The police are often there and the govt has looked into into its files.
I can't tell enough about what wonderful teachers this school have. Ms Kruze in first grade have the kids engage and exited about learning. Mr Cameron is an asset for this schooll. Miss Jessica is very patient, calm and prompt to answer to parents questions. The special classes that the students take every day are amazing, I got to observe tumbling class today, Mr Jorge is very professional and teach the kids to care of their bodies, and their brains. The kids looks happy and engaged. Great job Mr Jorge and thank you. My daughter loves this school and talk wonders of it. For the downside, cafeteria food is not so good and administrative staff sometimes seems unknowable. Iight definitely recommend this great school to everybody.
