I have 4 children and with my oldest starting High School already. my children have all started either Pre K or Kinder there and graduated and moved on. They all love Borba as their school. The staff has grown with our family and have given my children alot of knowledge from the staff in the office to the teachers that do a fantastic job. Thank you all!!!

Im really glad to hear this comment, that the Administration favors the low income, spanish speaking students. All my life I have seen these people pushed to the side and wept under the carpet, only to be given a mediocre education and treated less than. In some ways having to learn english and having a learning disability makes it so much more difficult for these little children. Give these children a real education and a chance at becoming successful. If we do that we help ourselves in the end, the problem is we are not educated enough to understand. We still think that everything belongs to us, and we are separate let me tell you something no one is going anywhere so lets give a helping hand so we don't end up supporting someone we did not properly educate.

Anna Borba's big drawback is the chain fence that surrounds the entire school. it looks like a prison. What are they afriad of?

The Administration at this school favors the low-performing, Spanish Speaking students and families. The parent meetings are twice as long, since they need to be translated in Spanish. The students that are continuing to score advanced on State Testing are not acknowledged, but the 3% of the student population that have raised their scores are rewarded with special privileges. Also, at parent meetings, the principal criticizes other elementary/junior high schools in the same district. The administration present and past have caused this school to fail academically when it was moved to their present location.

I transfered my child from Briggs to Anna Borba in the middle of her school year last year because of the whole move thing and I have to say that I was a little scared to do that because I thought Briggs was the better of the two schools. But after entering Anna Borba and really getting to know the staff and being lucky enough to have great teachers last year and this year, I know I made the right decisions for my child. I have a child that is ADHD and she has been getting avarage grades the last three years in school, and I am happy to say that with the hard work of my daughter and the help from her teacher this year she has made Honor Roll. And I have to say it is because of her teacher here at Anna Borba. Thanks for your help

Great school, wonderful principal and assistant principal, and great teachers. Very welcoming. My kids are getting a great education under the IB PYP program. The staff is hard working and friendly.

This new place is awful. Parents are not welcome and a friendly atmophere is nonexistent. Closing down the first campus and moving was a big MISTAKE!

My child has been at Anna Borba since grade K. My child is in speech and is doing great. The school is great the teachers are hard working and the Principle and VP are great too! This school is a title one school because of the children that are english second language! The state test is not written for a child that has trouble speaking eng. My child and many children scored very high on the state testing! In fact are teachers went above and beyond to prep are children for the testing! My child scored 100% on 4 areas of the state test! The Ib program is a new way to teach global. My son is learning more than I had learned in CA school and he is becoming a thinking, visionary and most of all a great student! Great job to all the staff at Anna Borba!

I finally pulled my children out of this school due to the poor leadership, teaching staff, and the fact that what you have read in the last quotes are completly on the mark! It was a hard decision to make but my kids have never been happier, and the education that they are receiveing at their new school within in district doesn't even compare to Borba. We thought as many others that it was a better school and that is simply not true. The IB program does not add anything to the school either. It just costs a lot of money!! and was being funded through the PFA until this year. Again pulling my kids out was the best decision I could have made and I am glad I did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have child that has been attending Anna Borba since third grade. He has only had wonderful caring teacher with a focus on teaching the best strategies to help students learn. My child is average student that has had all of his needs met by the professionals at Anna Borba. I feel that Anna Borba is a wonderful school. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Very concerned that they only pay attention to the straight A students. If your child is perfect and gets straight A's then this is the school for you. If you child is average then expect a lot of problems and inconsistencies. They do not hit the mark with treating all children the same. They make exceptions if you do not speak English and if your child is gate. I do not recommend this school. It is all hype.

one of the things that concern my wife and i is anna borba has become more of a neighborhood school. the 'school of choice' thing just means you need to sign up to go there. there are issues that are not followed through with to keep the students/parents in check!

If your child is always compliant, does not ask questions, and excells naturally academically Anna Borba is a good school for you. The school not only is Title one but continually misses the mark when it comes to test scores. They are now a program improvement school. My children will only be in this school until I can get them out!

My son has attended anna borba since kindergarten he is now in 5th grade. I have nothing but praise for this school they teach respect for others and accountability for you actions. The teachers are excellent. They truly care about the kids. The pfa works hard and they are a great group that consists of mothers and fathers. If you put your child in anna borba you are ensuring that they are getting the best education. Anna borba is a great school on so many levels.

I m a parent who is really involved in my children s education. So when their grades began to fall, I was concerned. I was at the school (room mom) watching & observing. What I saw was a disgrace to education. We were so glad to hear space became avail at Briggs. So untrue when someone tells you that Anna Borba is a great school. Now with the title 1 what happens to the future kids? No parent involvement except the same little PFA group taking over Mrs. Hemlock School.

I think are kids are an example of us (parents). The June 2006 review. It's not the school that teaches 'the importance of respect and dressing appropriately.' This comes directly from us the parents. My children are well mannered and very respectful. A proud parent with kids attending Briggs the last 2 years!

My son just began his 2nd year at Anna Borba and I am pleased with the school. The principal and assistant principal are wonderful as are the PFA, teacher's and staff. He is very happy and comfortable there. I like the respect that is taught. They also have a great after school program with wonderful staff for that as well.

This is a great school. Not only does it provide students with a sense of pride in their work but it also teaching them the importance of respect and dressing appropriately.

They are implementing an IB Program, which sounds good academically. Teachers are also getting trained to teach this IB program. It's dissapointing that students don't get music lessons and the arts aren't taught. They do have noon sports and you often see the principal out there supervising and playing as a referee. I don't like the kinder ratio. Very disapointed in this.

I moved to chino, ca. from overland park kansas. My wife and I were told that ana borba was the best school in the area. There is little to no control over the students. The only thing this school has control over is its parking proceedures. It takes roughly 20 minutes to pick up the kids each time we pick them up. This school is a tragedy in education.

I would recommend this school highly. I've been a parent at Anna Borba for 8 years now and have loved it. Parents are always encouraged to participate. There are lots of activities all the time. The teachers and administration are all extremely caring and supportive.

I have two children who have/are attending Borba. My 9-year-old is in 4th and is doing very well. I have nothing but great things to say about every teacher he has had. My 12-year-old attended K-6 and enjoyed every minute of it (except 2nd grade). The staff is friendly and helpful, the principal is terrific and the teachers are knowledgeable and well organized. Everyone there works with the parents to make the child's school experience valuable.
