Great school, experienced teachers , and high parent involvement. My kids have been going there for 4 years now and I'm very happy with their academic achievements. The school has a very active and amazing parent club that makes a lot of extra enrichment activities possible. I'm very grateful for the school teachers and staff.

This school's boundary basically is entirety of Seven Oaks community. The high API score is due to high number of kids getting tutored outside of school. Most teachers are uninspiring and do not like to teach. The worst is that some of the teachers are spoiled by parents who give them expensive gifts. Premium handbags from Europe, family trip to Disneyland, and so on. These teachers expect you to give them expensive gifts for their birthdays, Christmas, and so on. It is basically haven for spoiled rich brats and kids are very exclusive. There's not one positive for this school.

So far I have been pleased with the school. I love the diversity and great parental involvement. I had to laugh at the review about white teachers discriminating against other races, though. During meet the teacher day my child's white teacher talked for a long time with a nonwhite parent and then skipped over me to talk to another nonwhite parent. So in my case the white parent was passed over and ignored by the white teacher. Hopefully "quick to pull the race card" parents won't ruin my (so far) positive experience with Ronald Reagan.

Reagan elementary is wonderful!! I have worked at this school as a teacher assistant AND had a daughter there for 2 glorious years! The day I moved to Florida was the saddest day. It meant my daughter had to leave the best school in Bakersfield. The staff and teachers are fantastic, helpful and kind. The Principal was great. I do wish he had been a little more present before and after school. I think he should be a part of pick up and drop off at the car drop off. This school has a wonderful campus and is equipped with a great library and comp lab. Parent club is amazing and fundraising is taken to a new level. The thing my daughter misses most is recess..(Florida has NO recess!!) ..the playground was her imaginary playground. Lots of great areas for kids to play and run. We had come from a title one school and Reagan Elem. was a breathe of fresh air...If your lucky enough to be at this school..count your blessing.. After moving to Florida I have decided to home school..NOTHING can compare to what I want unless I move back to Bakersfield. :(

Today is meet and great the teachers. I noticed that white teachers are discriminating. When white parents came, so much information were given. But when our turn came, she seems hesitant to give information and when other white people came she left us then came back. God bless you madam! First impression is lasting!

Receptionist is very rude. I have gone three different times to just get an enrollment packet, and I still do not have one. She acts like the paper for the packets come out of her pay check. My son attend a private school I am very worried about sending him here, I will be to worried to call and be treated as if I am doing something wrong.

pros/cons: pros- the teachers are awesome. Very caring, hard working, and they truly want the best for each student. The principal is very involved and present. The cons - large class sizes. My 5th grader has over 30 students in her class. The gate students are taken off site once a week to another school for an all gate class. Although I wish there was a gate class on site 5 days a week, my daughter was challenged and really enjoyed her gate class curriculum. My 5th grader & 3rd grader have been at this school for almost 2 years. Its a great school. Coming from So. CA we had a very successful transition to Bakersfield.

I attended Ronald Reagan for seven years. Wouldn't have chosen a different school if I had a choice! Great staff, and the teachers take time to get to know the kids and work with them to succeed as much as they possibly can. Wonderful community and ParentClub!

Overall my experience with this school has been great with my 2 children. The parent involvement seems to be very important and is a big factor that allows the teacher to focus on the children. Very high recommendations for anyone that may be debating having their children attending there.

Excellent elementary school. My son enjoyed his 3 years in this school. The academic program is revised every other year and I had the opportunity to help at the School District level. The teachers are very friendly and good role models for the kids. We were very please with overall program and the homework load.

We have been involved at 2 other schools in the PBVUSD here in Bakersfield. We are extremely impressed with the level of parent, teacher and administration involvement at Ronald Reagan Elementary. We would not want our children at any other school!

Ronald Reagan Elementary is a great school with fabulous teachers and a curriculum unlike any. The teachers are seriously commited to their students and the parents alike. My three children are a part of the Reagan family,and they will tell anyone who will listen about all the wonderful teachers and programs at school. My kids are challenged every year. They are encouraged to strive for goals they once thought of as impossible. All the while being supported by very talented teachers. The Parent Club is a very active and integral part of this school. Our fundraisers have been used for many benefits to the children. The goal is always to benefit the kids. Parent involvement is welcomed, appreciated and always encouraged both by the Parent Club as well as the teachers and staff. Ronald Reagan is an excellent place for your kids to learn.

We chose our current neighborhood because of the high rating of the school. Overall we are satisfied, although we believe there is a 'hard' edge that is at times quite pronounced, by that we mean the school seems to be all business with little homey feel at all. This is from the administration and from at least two teachers in particular, who showed little empathy to our child as she's progressed through the grades. Our sense, and the teachers agree, is that the school district's--and this school's--response to the recent pressure to raise scores has resulted in a curriculum that is almost too challenging, further feuling the 'hard' edge we referred to earlier.

Ronald Reagan is a fantastic school. The children are relatively well behaved, parent involvement is incredible, and the quality of instructional staff is stellar.
