My child really enjoys her teacher and classmates but I do no enjoy the office staff. The women in the office are very rude and they get away with it because the principle is even worse. Terrible ! I want to switch schools so my child doesn't have to deal with these people anymore.

Very disappointed. The secretary is rude and the principle needs to participate and have concerns for each child in that school. I've left messages with the principle and still waiting for a reply.

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.

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.
