I was very surprised when we received ratings of our school this year.I have never had any problems here and when we started here we were a distinguish school. Someone made a comment that the principle was a man and someone else also made a comment about the special needs class. The principle is a woman and according to our company this school has a great special needs class . We have always had great teachers and a lot of fun at the schools events. If you have problems, turn things around and help make this school better. We need our kids to study hard and get our ratings up.

Some of the teachers are ok but the principal does not seem to care about the well being of the children that attend. When I was having problems she was not willing to help at all. When I told her that I would have to transfer him if they were not willing to work with me, her only response was that I would have to provide my own transportation.

The teachers my kids have had so far are great but I keep hearing how bad this principle is, I hope I never have to deal with him.

I do not like this school. And only knowing that the principal and staff there are very rude makes me even more uncomfortable.


Posted July 17, 2012

My Son has learning and behavioral disabilities. this school is not recommended at all if you have any kind of special needs children. The staff in the office is rude. The principle is mean rude and further more an alcoholic. Its not right attending meetings and the room we are in reeks of booze. Further more they rather suspend a child with disabilities instead of trying to help him. Yes there are many students and parents that love rancho verde but wait till you have a child who has learning and mental disabilities. they will not give them a one to one aid and when they cant deal with them they suspend them. my son was suspended 5 times in a 4 month period. I have fought and fought with the school about the issue and even gave recommendation on how to handle my boy. But nope they rather suspend him. the staff are rude to the kids and make them feel like they are bad children and even made a few rude comments about my child to me in front of other students and parents. Still searching for a school that with deal with him and work with him. my son is classified by the state of california as being disabled but the school does not care.

The office staff at this school is very rude,and unprofessional. My son had a situation occur on the school bus. I received a phone number to call transportation. My wife called the school to speak with the principal.The principal yelled,and then hung up the phone. This is not the type of education I want my kids to be taught. Maybe the office staff could use a vacation,but i'm not sure if that would help because their demeanor seems to be the same from the first day of school.

I have 4 kids enrolled in this school, and they all love it. I have been encourage as a parent to be involved in every aspect of their schooling, and they encourage parents to help and volunteer.

My eldest child, who has graduated from high school, attended Rancho Verde and my two youngest children are now there. I am very happy with their education. Their teachers have always been very caring and still inquire about my eldest. We have never had a problem with the staff.

This was our child's fourth elementary school due to work transfers and we had hoped her last, but unfortunately, the school suffers from bully problems and a severe lack of interest or support from the principal and teachers. The office staff was rude, angry and not child friendly. My child did not improve and actually became afraid of going to school. The music program my child was involved in was a failure - her excitement to learn to play an instrument turned to fear. We removed our child, for her safety and sanity, from this school. We would not recommend this school to anyone.

My son has been in this school since Kindergarden. The teachers are great.I just believe there should be more control over bullies.

Rancho Verde school has such a dedicated staff that cares about the students' needs. They continue to work towards meeting the academic needs of each student walking through their gates.

I have been very pleased with my son's educational experience at Rancho Verde School. He has attended Rancho Verde from kindergarten through fifth grade. He has had caring, creative teachers who have helped him build his character, and who have nurtured his creativity. He is in the GATE program and is actively involved in learning. He has had excellent test scores every year. I support the school by working with my son at home and by supporting his teachers and the school.

This school has been a big disappointment. My son came from a school that had a great GATE program but Rancho Verde doesn't ahve a functional GATE program in place. My son has a learning plan in place but that learning plan has been completely ignored by the educators on staff. The secretarial staff has been cranky and hard to deal with as well. This is the 3rd public school that my son has attended and the only one that I have been completely disappointed in. I cannot recommend this school at all.

This school does an amazing job! My children have had excellent teachers that have gone above and beyond what was expected by my husband and I. The school has a warm and inviting atmosphere for parents to be involved with their children's education. Keep up the good work!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
