Independence Elementary School 2

They had no concern for the star test for either of my kids. They didn't care how they did on paper they still passed them through to the next grade. I spent all school year last year teaching at home to compensate for the lack of teaching in the classroom. This school is very involved with PTC and is friendly, but I am disappointed with the curriculum and will be moving at the end of this school year.

My school is very great and every day the staff is nice and friendly. I have known a lot of these teachers for a while now, and every day they give me a friendly, warm smile. New kids fit in great. This is a great school to attend.

this school offers programs to improve ALL students. GATE is a positive, but realistically, few students qualify. The base of my review is that it is for ALL kids inclding specal Ed.

We started our son in this school in K, then moved. We have moved back just so we could put him and our other kids back in it. I have 2 boys there now, and they tell me how much they love school everyday!

Very good school. Rosedale schools overall are top notch in Bakersfield. Many of the teachers are parents within the District, which is a positive sign.
