My son goes to Arnold, came there in the 1st grade ... They have a great math and reading program ..many people move into area just for the schools . you will have to bring additional supplies to school due to budget cuts .. but that is schools in california
We have been generally pleased with Arnold. Staff and parents are proactive and generally engaged with the students and teachers. Daughter just finished K with Ms. Yue and my son just finished with 2nd with Ms. Earley. Both of these ladies are awesome people and gifted teachers who really care. The "three R's" are adequately taught, as are the state tests, no music, however, there is plenty of art, especially in Ms. Earley's class (she taught what I didn't learn until I took Art Appreciation during my freshman year in college)! Lots of mostly Korean immigrant families who don't always speak English, so they tend to stick together, and don't always integrate very well with the other cultures (Latino, Anglo-Saxon, African, etc.) who do seem to integrate seamlessly.
I love Arnold! The staff are wonderful and the teachers are great! The standard of learning is high. My son has Mrs.Yeh and she is very passionate with her teaching and full of energy. Arnold not only focus in higher learning but also stresses the importance of character building so the kids at Arnold are very friendly and welcoming of new students.
