My child had a great first year (Kindergarten) at ALE. His teacher Mrs. Maloney was nothing short of an amazing teacher. Everything since has been one disappointment after another. No structure, no support no stability.

My grand daughter attends ALE and she is happy all of the time, her grades are most excellent and she loves the staff! I would not have it any other way or at any other school. ALE PTA Rocks!

The principal and staff at this school are so friendly. My daughter just started 1st grade here and I am happy to send her off in the morning. The principal and assistants always greet my daughter with a smile. It really makes a difference when you start the day off with a nice greeting. :) Her teacher (Mrs. Cipris) seems very caring and nice too. It makes me feel like my daughter will be taken care of at this school.

I Love my school! Our ALE PTA guys and gals ROCK and we appreciate everything they do for our school. Our principal Mrs De Visser has the most warmest, most generous heart and the perfect lady you want looking over your children.

I would LOVE to take this time to mention how wonderful all of the teaching and employee staff of our beloved school are such wonderful and caring people whom I love having at ALE with my daughter.

This school is great!! I have had 3 kids go to this school and I have not been disappointed by any of the teachers. The teachers are dedicated to make sure all of the students get an education they deserve!

A once vibrant school, the morale of the parents have fallen. Walking into the front office, you can expect to be berated by the front office staff. The proctors talk about the children in front of other students. The events no longer have excitement. The principal has hands in everything, which has caused a back-log of action items. Over the last three years, enrollment has dropped from 518 (above) to 475, with parents taking their children based on their children's unhappiness. Teachers and parents alike have addressed issues with the principal, who fails to or unwilling to recognize the problems. I hope the school can turn around before the end of the school year.

This public school is great - one of the cleanest schools I have ever seen - and the teachers work together to create a nurturing, fun and safe learning environment. I am thrilled to have my child attending this school. The principal is outstanding!

I have had 4 children attend ALE. My 4th is now in 6th grade. So I have been involved with ALE for over 17 years. I have seen alot of teachers and principals come and go in those years, and yes some better than others. I believe there are some very good teachers at ALE and maybe some not so great teachers there as well but let me say I think you will get that wherever you go. The administration has always been helpful if I have had an issue and I honestly wouldn't want my children to go anywhere else!

My children attend this school and while many of our experiences have been very positive, we've also had some negative experiences as well. My child has a teacher who I have had some issues with but nothing has been done. My child's grades are faltering because of it and I've been very frustrated. That being said, of the 6 or so other teachers we've dealt with, I've had no prior complaints.

I have had 3 kids in ALE. My daughter is now at ALHS and I still have 2 at the elementary. I don't know what that parent is talking about? The principal has always been a great listener and has been wonderful to my children. The 6th grade teachers are also wonderful. I would highly recommend the school. I tried private school with my oldest son and had a much better experience at ALE.

I am truly sad to say the faculty are horendous. I just pulled my 6th grader mid year from ALE to home school her and am on here looking for private schools for my 2 kids for next year. I am in the process of submitting a stack of complaints to the superintendant. There are some excellent teachers in the lower grades but it ends there. The principal handles parents as if we are the problem and treats us in a childish manner. Sadly, our children are suffering.

ALE has a terrific PTA! It is a California Distiguished School. We have excellent band, choral, and art instruction as well as a designated P.E. teacher for upper grades. It is a traditional K-6 elementary school with very experienced faculty. Students needs are met in creative and collaborative ways. Students are from diverse backgrounds. We take field trips, have special assemblies and lots of awards and character development programs.

I have 2 sons who attend ALE. The proctors are outstanding. They ensure a safe and fair enviornment for the students. My youngest son's teacher kept me informed as to his progress on a weekly basis. This aided me while I was working with him at home. My oldest son's teacher was a saint. She taught and guided my son to each goal. Being a mother herself, she understood the struggles I was going through at home with him. She helped me to understand my son better. We made it through 5th grade together.

I enjoy this school, but there are a few things that can be done better. It isn't the administration's fault, but the districts. Too many rules to follow. If I want to visit my son's classroom, I have to give 24 hour notice to the teacher. In a private school, I can just show up. They don't incorporate anything extra into the curriculum (i.e. Cinco De Mayo, Black History month). The only thing focused on in February is Presidents Lincoln and Washington's birthdays. There is more to education than just what's in the books. They need more thinking outside of the box to keep the student engaged.
