My son started in April 2013 and he had made a quick adjustment. The staff made a stress-free transition and wow!, the student gave him a warm welcome. Mrs Hofmyers is such an incredible and awesome teacher. Thank you! and we are looking forward to a new school year. Yeahhhh!

This school is hanging on to the assistance of the parents. Meaning that if the parent would not help with homework and explain anything that is not clear, this school's API would drop like a rock. I am strongly thinking of moving my child to another school. The principal is not someone strong that will stand up and make the necessary changes. The teachers are o.k. not all, there is only a few, that are worth the funds the school is getting. This school needs someone firm and strong, with new ideas that will improve the school environment for all the children. If you have a better choice in schools, I would stick to the better choice. Yes I am picky, but what "parent" isn't? I want the best for my child and is very sad to say this is not the school it used to be.

37 students in a 4th grade class and combo classes are a joke. Very dissappointing year so far this year. For students with a learning disability and being stuck in a class of 37 they don't get the attention they need no matter how good the teacher is. My first year and the school and I'm not impressed so far with the Administration. Most of the teachers and great and friendly.

The Hidden Trails have a new principal, Mrs. Fellows. She is very helpful, caring, loving and understanding leader. This school is extremely lucky to have her. She will make a big difference for Hidden Trails!

I LIKE THE SCHOOL AND MY CHILD HAS DONE WELL SO FAR BUT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INVOLVED IN HOMEWORK BUT NOT SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. SOME PARENTS MAY HAVE THE LUXURY TO GET INVOLVED IN THEIR CHILD'S ACTIVITY BUT SOME MIGHT NOT! AGAIN MY CHILD DID VERY WELL BECAUSE WE HAD A GOOD AND STRICT TEACHER AND I MADE SURE MY CHILD UNDERSTOOD THE HOMEWORK. I ASKED WHAT THEY DID IN SCHOOL/ LEARNED IN CLASS. UNFORTUNATLY I DON'T HAVE THE LUXURY TO BE AT SCHOOL AND TALK TO OTHER PARENTS WHICH IS WHAT YOU REALLY DO WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED! I WOULD RATHER BE IN CLASS HELPING WITH GROUP ACTIVITIES THEN KNOWING OTHER PEOPLE'S BUSSINES. I THINK CLASSES ARE TOO BIG AND THE STUDENT MIGHT NOT GET THE ATTENTION THEY NEED.

Very pleased with the academic program, the environment is extremely positive. The principal is always approachable and truly cares about the kids; she is highly visible and sets a great example for the children. We are fortunate to have a highly dedicated and exceptional group of teachers. The parents that complain are typically the ones that are not involved with the school and that is unfortunate because there is a high degree of parental involvement. If you become acquainted with the school, you will be so grateful your child attends this wonderful school.

Principal do not like to involve, you cannot talk to her when you have problem, and she never have time for you. Some teacher is very good but some is not. The school overall is not motivate at all.

It seems that if your child is either an average student or an above average student, your experience at this school will likely be positive. With the increased class size from 20 to 30 starting in 4th grade, should your child need extra help, the school/district there are no programs for assistance in this area - that is you are on your own.

My children have been in Hidden Trails since Kindergarten. One has moved on to Junior High School and the other is in grade 4. Hidden Trails is great! A lot of Parents volunteer and the parents are deeply involved in the school activities. The teachers rely immensely on the parents and to thier luck the parents are available. A lot of stay-at-home moms and the same amount of working moms who try to volunteer thier services as much as they can. The kids are well supported and the community is quiet. Hidden Trails has a high API score and the students bring that to the Junior High schools and High schools. It's an upper middle class neighborhood with minimal to no disruptions from troublemakers

The school has a lovely site and grounds, but is too crowed, I found that the high number of students were detrimental to my childs learning. Because of the high number of students, unless you had a really good teacher, asking questions were not easily accommodated, I pulled my child out.

My kids are in 2nd and 4th grade. Me and my wife have been extremely pleased with the quality of Teachers namely Mr. Luck and Mrs Hunt. The leadership of the Principal Mr. Voros is exceptional. We are glad we transfered our kids to Hidden Trails. Mr and Mrs. Patel

Hidden Trails is an excellent school. This is a California Distinguished school! The staff at Hidden Trails want to make sure that each and every child is successful. Their attempt at leaving no child behind is truly put into practice. My older son was at risk for 3 years in a row, but the staff at Hidden Trails made him overcome this obstacle every year and reinstill the confidence that he lacked. He is not intimidated by academics anymore...in fact he is a honor student at his junior high now.

My child has attended Hidden Trails for the past 4 years and I have had nothing but positive things come of it. Interaction with the parents is greatly encouraged, and the weekly emails from the principal are a great way to stay informed.

My children have been at Hidden Trails for two years now. Mrs. Stoehr in first grade is wonderful and is academically excellent. Mrs. Olgin is also very academic and is extremely patient. She has an exceptional way of getting the children to learn. Both of my children are doing great. We are very pleased with Mr. Voros. He is an excellent principal. I couldn't have asked for a better school.
