Both of our boys attendedSonora & are now succeeding in middle/high school. Many Sonora graduates go on to be campus leaders in high school. My boys got an excellent foundation to build on. They were always placed with classes or groups to challenge them and help them develop to their ability. Because music and the arts are a priority at Sonora, they experienced a well rounded education. Finally, the parent involvement is huge and makes a difference. Whether through PTA, Dads Club, or just supportive parents & grandparents, Sonora families know how much the help and involvement makes a difference. Sonora students are College bound!
My child did not get the individual attention he required. It seemed that the teacher just wanted him to fail.
Sonora! All we can say is that it is the best school! It is a very special place, and our children are excelling, being challenged and having a fun, enriched elementary school experience! We love the teachers, staff, programs, extracurricular activities, PTA, and so much more! We are blessed to be at this school! Thank you, Sonora teachers! We just got our children's test scores, and all we can say is, "JOB WELL DONE!!" ADVANCED in all areas! This CA Distinguished School is outstanding!
Sonora is a great school- great teachers, parents and principal!! very glad this is our neighborhood school- many people try to transfer in because they realize what a gem it is
So if you are into fund raising this school is for you... My daughters teacher was Ok. However as a parent I was not really kept informed as to what was happening at the school so much t the point that i had no idea they had picture day until the pictures came home.. I was lucky i did my daughters hair that day.. She is in Kinder so you would think you would not leave important information in the hands of 5 and 6 year old children, but they do. The Principal great on the other hand bent over back wards to help my family out too bad she was no the teacher.
Sonora has the most incredible teachers and staff around! We are so blessed our children attend such a phenominal school!
I love Sonora Elementary because the teachers are just terrific...They truely care about each child and strive to do their best to help every single child! :)
The Staff is unmatched in any school public, private, expensive or not!
Sonora is filling with caring people who truly love their students. The environment is warm and friendly. Each member of the staff works hard to get to know each student not only for academic purposes, but also have a positive impact on their future.
I am grandmother of a new student, a kindergartner, at Sonora Elementary School in Costa Mesa, Ca. My grandson, Ethan, loves his first year of school. His teacher is nice and has good learning activities for him. His classroom and school has a friendly, student centered envirenment. We are grateful our kindergarter loves going to school each day. Our son and daughter-in-law tell us that Sonora Elementary is proving to be a great school for Ethan. Thank you Sonora Elementary!
I see my grandson nearly every day. He has a great deal of pride in his school and tells me what he learns. The staff and Ms. Jessica are all really on their toes! I am inspired by their contributions to the children at sonora.
Sonora Elementary School has a lot of very good teachers and they are teaching my daughter very good. Thank you so much for all of you.

This school has gone from a low rated school to a 'California Distinguished school' in a very short time! There are so many Great teachers there It's hard to pick a favorite.
I Love Sonora for its dedicated teachers and staff. The education my daughter has/is receieving always is above & beyond my expectations.
The fabulous principal, teachers, hard working students and parents! The combination makes for an outstanding school.
This school is one of the best in the District by far. We have consistently increased test scores over the years, while not compromising a whole education for our children. We are an Arts Connect grant school; science & technology is a priority; and we have a very active parent group. We love Sonora.
