El Roble is a great school. You can't go wrong with Claremont! Teachers and staff are great! Great after school programs.
We are thinking of having our child start 7th grade next year at this school. I have read and looked over everything. It looks good and promising for our child, but, would like some further input from other families whos children have attend this school...the Safety (bullying...how do they handle it...?) Principal, Teachers, Curriculum, Staff, etc...Thank you!
I have just pulled my daughter from this school. It has done nothing but gone down hill since my son went there 10 years ago. My daughter is a top athlete and A-B student. She was bullied over a period of one year. I met with the Vice Principal on more than one occasion and was assured the problem was resolved. Well, it never was. I don't know about anyone else, but my first priority is the safety and security of my child. I only wish the school admininstration felt the same way.
Our daughter graduated from El Roble last year and had a very positive experience. Ther majority of the teachers are extremely strong in all of the different areas (and P.E. was surprisingly one of the highlights for our daughter...a great team of very caring professionals). She was challenged academically and continues to test very well. The teachers take the time to get to know the kids and have high expectations for behavior and performance. She was encouraged and looked out for. She entered El Roble disliking history, science, and math - those are now three of her favorite subjects. Open house was a telling indicator of the teachers impact on their students. There are lines out the doors because the students are excited for their parents to see their work and interact with teachers who really take an interest in their lives. I was pleasantly surprised that middle school could be such a postive experience for our daughter.
Unfortunately, the principal is very dismissive of real parent involvement or suggestions, preferring instead checkbook involvement and quiet acceptance of some pretty ridiculous rules designed to control students. Some good teachers, though. At least one is exceptionally good.
I loved El Roble. Almost everyone was friendly and quant. I really miss this school
Great school and great teachers. Reccomended by most parents who care about their child.
I Love El Roble!!! I am a seventh grader this year and it is the coolest thing ever! There is a great balacnce between fun and discipline. The teachers are great and take the extra time to help you and make sure you understand everything.
I love this school. The academics are challenging. The teachers really care about their students. The ElRoble PE staff is awesome! This certainly wasn't my PE in Jr. High. They did a fun and creative Olympics unit. The kids ride wave boards, swim, play fun & different games.
We have been very pleased with El Roble The academic challange is a great stepping stone for CHS. Yes, there are a few rotten apples like at any Junior High . The teachers and staff are professionals who seem to work very hard at preparing our kids for High School and the API scores show it. El Roble is one of the best in the state! The few kids who come out of the district do not ruin the rest of the bunch who have come from a great School district.
My child was academically challenged when she arrived at El Roble this past winter. At her previous school she had been neglected as an ADHD child, put on the back burner and forced to figure things out on her own all too often by the lack-luster teachers that were supposed to be teaching her. In 45 days at El Roble, she went from failing with D's and F's to A's and C's. This is something she had never achieved before and has allowed her confidence to be boosted immensely. I highly recommend this school for it's devotion to the acceleration of their students and for their professionalism.
El Roble is working to get back into a positive learning environment. There are still a few holes, but overall, a great and positive place for 7th and 8th graders.
This school its a great school. The teachers are all good and the administration are also good. Some the studets get out of control but most of the time they are good.
We are very pleased with the program that this school has offered. It is challenging, yet child centered. The staff and administration has been supportive and responsive. Students are given the opportunity to make choices in their schedules. It is a safe school. A bullying situation was promptly and effectively dealt with.
