I don't like this school at all, most of the teachers are so focused on getting through the curriculum that they don't stop and realize that a lot of the students aren't grasping on the subject and how its being taught. Its hard to find a teacher who is willing to actually teach and not just read the curriculum. No student should be left behind but at this school its not just one student that gets left behind its actually most. I think that most of the teachers need to re-evaluate their teaching abilities because based on the test scores this school has dramatically gone down. There are a handful of teachers that actually do their job and teach and I thank those for putting in the effort to teach our children and help them understand. The staff is ok, they have their good days and a lot of their bad days, This school really needs to focus on the students and how they are being taught. It would help the students learn and accomplish where they need to be at, So far I've been waiting for the the principal to take action for 2 years now and have seen nothing. Focus should be on teaching and learning not on the dress code so much. Lets put all that effort into the right direction.

The school seems more focused on test scores than anything else. Too many students and not enough teachers. Curriculum isn't balanced because of focus on scores rather than having a well rounded student. There's little opportunity for kids to be kids and unleash creativity. The teachers and staff are incredibly friendly and nice, but it's not enough to give higher ratings. They start common core next year. Bring on the drones.

I just moved from Flagstaff last summer and my son started 2nd grade at Pueblo. When we started it seemed he was below level in every subject! I had no idea and was always told in Flagstaff that everything was fine. The way that the teachers divided up the class to give more individual attention and actually stayed after class to help the kids that need it is absolutely awesome! And my son even loves going there.

My son has attended school in New Orleans, LA and we moved here in 4th grade and my son is now going into the 5th grade, the principal is excellent, has so much respect for the parents , is always ready to help, she is so kind, the teachers are so helpful and give so many aditional activities, Ms Cervantes, Ms Best are so encouraging , I Just cannot praise them enough.

Principal is overbearing and doesn't listen when parents try to talk to her. Fortunately my son has a wonderful teacher this year or I would give this school the lowest possible rating.

Because they promote 'walk to school day' 'Earth Day everyday by having a day for students think about how to keep our planet clean I believe this is a positive way for kids to learn

I found the teachers working hard and the administration making their jobs even harder. I was disappointed when I moved to this town after enjoying much better schools in North Carolina. Overall impression of Arizona school system is bad.

Too many students, too little money. From a teacher's standpoint, it was difficult to serve the students that you loved so much due to poor leadership and incompetent co-workers. Couldn't ask for better students, though.

As a former teacher, I must say that teaching here was very difficult. You were not given the tools that you needed to succeed. It is sad that the students have to suffer due to poor principal leadership.

Student to teacher ratio is too high. Children exceeding AZ standards are not challenged.

Problems were noted with inproper discipline and poor support from school administration. Punishments such as missing recesses were used days after young children had been good simply because they were owed. Young children need immediate response to their behavior so they can make the connection between the behavior and the punishment to learn what's expected of them. The support was good from the counselor but the principal and vice principal viewed a parent speaking to the counselor as going out of the chain of command, when it's part of a school counselor's job. Overall, Pueblo Elem. is not for those parents who are looking for approachable admin., fair treatment, and professional conduct. Pueblo's best feature is it's walking location to the nearby housing develpoments, but is not the place to send your child if you want to feel safe in the knowledge that your child is getting treated right and learning about fairness.
