I was so excited for my grandson to attend this school. He loved preschool ans was so excited to move into Kinder. My sister's kids attend the school and had warned us about a certain Kinder teacher. To my poor little boy luck, he got her. My daughter has given her the benefit of the doubt for a month with no help at all. My grand child is now hating school, having accident, having nightmares, getting hives, and lets not even talk about his little self esteem. Been an the education world my self I know how a teacher can touch a child's life forever. Her comments to my daughter"He is to happy, dances to big, has a learning problem." Well we had him tested and non is true. Now she is waiting for the VP to get involved and observe. How much longer should one wait before this sweet little boy spirit is damage??
The school is old and outdated, teachers some great others don't want to be there and teach. Classes are small, dark, clattered ;( it's reminded me "Hoarders show" . New principal every couple of years. Tons of homework for poor kiddos. Only positive is a beautiful location and great parents.
Would not recommend that school. High ratings is a lie.
I came to this school because of the test scores. You think okay Chino Hills, great area awesome school district. Boy was I wrong. The staff, the teachers, the parents HORRIBLE! I could not wait to get out of here and move to another school
School located in the great area, surrounded by gorgeous parks. Wonderful parents who are helping as much as they can. Amazing speech therapists. Classes are small and messy, not organized. School is old, no renovations done in years. Every year they have new principal. Teachers doesn't care about kids education, they just do minimum. I would not recommend that school, if you care about your child education don't bring them there. If it located in good area at Chino Hills it doesn't mean it's a great school :( glad my kids are out.
We moved to Chino hills mid school year, so my son has been having a hard time in this school. Not only that but he has been in private school his whole life. I do find that the teachers are no help in helping him catch up. Which for me is to be excepted, but I am the type of mother to call or talk to someone as soon as I hear of problems. His math teacher has done little to help and when I ask she really does nothing to help me understand what I need to do to get him caught up. So we are hiring a math tutor. As for his primary teacher, she is alright, as far as I can see. I am going to start helping in my sons class to see what's really going on. I call the school a lot about any problems, so does my husband. The principal seems to be good at handling our problems so far. I do like her and the office staff, as of now. My son has only been at this school 2.5 months. By the end of the school year the staff will definitely know who I am. If my son is not treated right, they will hear from me. Overall, we have had some problems, but they seem to try their best to help us out. I can't expect red carpet service like we had a the other school, I just have to put in a little more effort.
The parents are what make this a good school not the teachers. My child is in kindergarten and he has not learned a thing all year. He is being taught things he learned in his 3 year old preschool (shapes, colors, letters) Advanced kids are not helped to continue improving and kids who struggle are brushed off as a burden. Very disappointing that the previous reviewers were correct. I was hoping that is was just a few disgruntled parents but they are very accurate. This school has such great potential but some of these lazy teachers who are set in their ways do not care about lovingly pushing students to achieve.
