I also agree about the excessive roughness on the playground and the fact that there is a lot of yelling and screaming by many of the teachers there. The test scores are not good especially when compared to Malibu. As for the reviewer who stated that the remarks about excessive roughness on the playground are unfounded, I too volunteer every week at this school and have seen it for myself on a weekly basis. There are many private schools in the area that are well worth the extra money to send your child to rather than them attending this place. Also, the staff plays favorites with certain families, certain parents, and certain children, which I find unacceptable.
Great teachers, lots of parental involvement, caring staff members and administrators - my three kids had wonderful experiences at Round Meadow.
this school is great because there is alot of parent involvement and the staff really cares
We love this school! The staff is wonderful, the school brings in amazing and interesting performers for assemblies, and you just can not compare the level of parent involvement. It really is a great school!
The kids get such a well rounded education in a fun atmosphere. And has a family feeling.
Round Meadow is an excellent public school, the teachers are caring, there is lots of parental support and involvement, there are many after school enrichment programs available, and an amazing PFA that raises enough money to pay for music, art and computer classes. I couldn t ask for a better public education for my daughter. With all of the state budget cuts threatening the quality of our schools, Round Meadow is still able to do a phenomenal job. As for the other reviewers who think the playground is unsafe , I think these complaints are unfounded, I volunteer at Round Meadow at least once a week and have seen that there is supervision on the playground. And on a side note, I have heard the same bully complaints from parents in Malibu schools. I challenge these reviewers to find a public school that doesn t have some rough play on the playground.
The staff truly cares about the children and the parents are involved as well to make sure the school is the best it can be!
Sadly, we have been disappointed with our child's education and overall experience with Round Meadow. The lack of supervision on the playground as well as excessive rough play is unacceptable. Even after we voiced our concerns to the teacher and principal, our child was sent to the nurse twice and we never received a call from the school. The classes were so loud and out of control that we wondered how on earth the children were able to concentrate enough to learn the fundamentals.
I agree with some other reviewers on here - Round Meadow School has many things about it that leave much to be desired. In the four years my child has attended this school, the incidents of roughness on the poorly supervised playground have been too many to count. The so-called Peaceful Players that are supposed to stop bullying, in reality do nothing. The test scores for this school are much lower than schools in Malibu. And the amount of yelling and screaming that goes on in the classroom by some of the teachers is shocking and unacceptable. I wish I could pull my child from this school and go to a private school or else a better school in Malibu.
I do not like this school, my child does not like this school, and neither does my husband. I find the education to be not as good as a private school, and I find there to be inadequate supervision on the playground. Very disenchanted with Round Meadow - we are saving up to send our child to private school and away from this school.
For a public school, there is not a school out there that could compare!! Great loving teachers, Great enviornment! A True education begins & ends in the home, but for everything inbetween Round Meadow is phonomenal.
From the moment we stepped foot on to the campus , it felt right. The staff treated us like they had known us for years. They really welcome everyone with open arms . It truly feels like you are part of a family
We purchased a home in the Las Virgenes School District, specifically for the quality of the schools. We haven't been disappointed! The teachers are wonderful and able to challenge our gifted student and engage our child who had been struggling. The parent involvement is amazing! While there have been drastic nationwide education cuts, Round Meadow still offers music, art, science, PE, computers and library. The Peaceful Players have a no bully policy and you couldn't ask for a nicer group of kids. As a parent who has come from a private school, Round Meadow is absolutely comparable to a private school education.
Round Meadow is a fantastic elementary school. We are proud to have our children there. Yes, the school is required to follow state educational guidelines & yes, it is faced w/constant budget cuts. However, any parent who thinks that their child is not challenged due to other students performance levels needs to be more introspective. We have a gifted daughter & a middle of the pack child as well. Both have the same homework - yes. My daughter is challenged by her teacher with advanced reading & writing. My son is given extra assistance if required. It is up to the parents to be involved in their own child's education & have an open dialogue with educators- whether it be in a private or public setting. Round Meadow is as close to a private school as one can get - a small, close, caring community.
Why shouldn't the education children receive at Round Meadow be compared to the education they could receive at a private school? There may be parents out there trying to decide between sending their child to Round Meadow and sending them to a private school. Round Meadow is good school only when compared to other public schools. My son attended Round Meadow for two years, but my wife and I decided to switch him to a private school because he was not being challenged enough educationally and because of unnecessary and unbridled rough play by other children on the playground there at Round Meadow. Perhaps the new principal there has since gotten a handle on the playground situation. However, my wife and I were not impressed with the education our son was receiving there, and are much happier now that he is receiving a superior private school education.
Strong family participation. Virtually every parent attended Open House.
Round Meadow is a wonderful school. The principal, teachers, and classified staff are dedicated and hard working. Everyone puts the kids first! The PFA is extremely active. Parents raise funds to support the music, art and P.E. programs. They also sponsor a number of high quality assemblies each year. Many after school enrichment programs are offered for a fee. Round Meadow is also situated on a beautiful campus. It is a wonderful place for students to learn and grow.
When my child went to Round Meadow from Faith Baptist, she felt disappointed. In her fourth grade class, they were still learning long division when she learned it in second and third grade. Now they have updated the curriculum, which I am not familiar with. But do not expect it to be just a good as a private school. Round Meadow does have fabulous teachers and it is in a wonderful school district.
We have been so impresesed by our experience at Round Meadow. The teachers have been fantastic with our daughter. Not only does the school have great test results but more importantly the teachers offer a wonderful nurturing environment. The parents are very involved with the school. Through the PFA, Round Meadow continues to have excellent music, PE, computer, and enrichment classes. My daughter loves going to school!
