My kids attended the original YB, and now my grandkids are at the new, amazing YB facility. Luckily, the one consistency is the high quality of teachers in the Las Virgenes school district. I volunteer in 2 classrooms and, as the daughter of a school administrator, I pay close attention to all the details. I am very thankful the next generation of our family gets to attend such a wonderful public school.
I am proud to work with the most dedicated, out of the box thinking staff who care about each and every student and their individual needs! Go YB BEAT!
I have two kids attending YB and we are in our second year with the school. Last week my 5 year old said to me as we walked into school on the new walking/bike path, "Mom, I thank God for the wonderful school I get to go to." I couldn't agree more! Except, I would also like to thank my husband for going to work everyday to support us living in the the YB school zone. Both of my boys run into school so excited each and everyday. They both love YB and their teachers. The school offers so much to our kids like art, music, PE, dance, computers, an amazing library. Also, YB and Mrs. Desiderio has been able to keep the class sizes so low. What more could we ask for? The parents participate and are all so down-to-earth and friendly too. "YB Positive? Because we can!" This really does fit our school.
Yerba Buena: Great Principal & Staff. Three grandchildren have attended the school and its many activities. Current principal is absolutely outstanding in her work.
We love our school. We transferred from another larger school in first grade and have been so happy ever since. Great teachers, awesome staff and we love the new sidewalk. Such a great small community feeling
I can't say enough about Yerba Buena, from the principle, teachers, office staff and janitors. They are kind, helpful, loving and smart. I recommend this school to all.
We truly believe Yerba Buena Elementary is the best school in our area. We've been here for about 7 years and each year the staff and the principal is continuously working on improving the school in every aspect. The teachers are wonderful, the office staff is always so kind to all the kids. What else can we ask for. This year especially, with the new sidewalk, the traffic and parking situation is so much better, it makes it so much easier for the parents. My kids love going to YB.
Yerba Buena elementary is an outstanding learning community! The new YB Beat focus is exceptional - with great talent in its teaching staff and a fabulous administration!
Yerba Buena Elementary school continues to be a wonderful environment for my children to learn year after year. The teachers are caring and invested in each child as an individual. The office staff is always friendly and helpful to all! I am excited to see my children develop their skill in so many areas. YB also encourages socialization and respect between peers and adults. I am very pleased my children at YB!
My daughter goes too yerba buena since last year when she start kinder, we love the school, the principal is very active and the teachers are amazing . The staff at the office is so polity. We are very happy
Yerba Buena is an awesome elementary school. I am very pleased my children are attending YB. Excellent caring teachers, fabulous office staff who care as much as the teachers, and a principal that goes to the front of the line for all of her students. Would like to see greater parent involvement, however the teachers top notch. Principal is very geared toward ensuing respect among the students as well as strong education in academics, arts, and technology. The cirriculum is a challenge, however students will be prepared for higher education and life's goals and challenges. My kids love YB and their teachers!!! Thank you.
Yerba Buena is an excellent school with outstanding educators and staff. The new YB BEAT, with its focus on the arts and technology, is the perfect complement to a challenging and engaging curriculum. My girls are constantly challenged, yet enjoy every minute of it. The teachers are outstanding, particularly Mrs. Kallman. My kids have been at the school 5 years now and we've been very fortunate to have wonderful and caring teachers each year. While parking has always been a challenge, I think the new sidewalk appears to be cutting down on the congestion; hopefully it continues to improve. Overall, EXCELLENT school and my girls are so happy to be here!!
It is an outstanding school with great teachers and staff. The teachers go above and beyond the regular curriculum to challenge the kids. The school is supported by the parents and the community.
Yerba Buena is a wonderful school. Wonderful teachers . The Principal is doing a great job. They are doing great job bridging arts and technology.
Yerba Buena is a wonderful school! The campus is well kept, the staff and principal are involved and caring and the education is top notch!
My girls have been here for K & are now starting 1st grade. So far it's been a great experience. Their K teacher Mrs. Garrido is a wonderful & caring teacher. She did a great job in transitioning them from preschool to grade school. The traffic situation seems to be getting better with the new sidewalk because I don't have to worry about kids jaywalking or cars making 3 point turns going into the school. Also if I decide to walk them in I don't have to worry about driving the whole loop before parking. I love how they hired a dance instructor for PE this year & how they incorporate arts/technology especially since these programs get cut at other schools.
My son's school is great, because they work very hard to have the required funds to educate our children even when state funds isn't enough. What solidified my excellent ranking score is our school really cares about our students. They just don't say it, they do it. Like the recent sidewalk. I could just imagine what they had to go through to get it done. It turned out amazing!!! I'm proud of my son's school.
Yerba Buena Elementary school is amazing! This is definitely one of the best schools in the district. The teachers and staff are the reason this school stands out
This school is the reason our family moved to Agoura Hills and this neighborhood in particular. Out of 9 schools we toured, YB was by far the most outstanding. Newer campus, excellent facilities, a staff and principal who care about the kids. We feel confident that our children are getting a great education in a safe environment.
YB is a top notch elementary school that has the academics of a private school education in a community that is supportive, loving and involved. From the office staff , teachers to the principal everyone is knowledgeable, goes the extra mile and really cares about each student's success. The Arts and Technology focus with YB BEAT has brought incredible artistic, cultural and technological exposure to the students. My daughter and son both received fantastic scholastic enhancement from YB. I highly recommend over any other school in the Las Virgenes District. We are a family, we are involved and the kids reap the benefits of such an amazing leader in our principal.
