This is an excellent school! From the moment you walk in, and Mrs. Aguayo greets you with her big warm smile, you feel very comfortable! My TK student would barely lift a pencil for me at home, I was so worried he would be very behind other students, but Mrs. Rowe has taught him so well. He comes home so excited every day to tell me what he's learned. I am more than happy with this school.
We moved here when my child was in 7th grade from La Verne Ca. I was worried about how he would transition. The kids and staff were super warm and friendly and he fit right in. It is a beautiful school and my son always said how good the food was. My child really enjoyed his 2 years here and I was so sorry it went by so fast! I can't say enough about the wonderful teachers and staff. The secretary was a sweetheart from the moment we walked through the door and made us feel so welcome. Mariana Academy is one big caring family! I have never seen any school quite as special.
I love Mariana Elementary school I whet here when I was a kid and now my two children go there. The Principal is a wonderful woman. Who doesn't just think about one person she try's to make a good judgement that can fit everyone's needs. Also it's nice to know almost all the he teacher too and comforting not only as a parent but as a student too. Although other people that help run the afterschool program are kind of rough around the edges especially the man in charge. he tends to be more friendly to other parents and rude to others not sure the reasoning behind this.
I am a parent and I volunteer at this school I am proud to say that my child has the opportunity to learn in Mariana's environment. The standard at this school is, children first! The staff and volunteers/ booster club really do care!!!!
