Develops honesty: Agree
August 20, 2015
I agree that this school develops honesty, integrity, and fairness in students because the staff hold the children and their parents accountable for any dishonesty. I did not experience any unfairness or noticed any favoritism while my daughter attended

My daughter was assigned to this school her first semester of Kinder but we had to relocate for a new job and she finished the year in a private school. Private school got too expensive and she is back in the public school system starting the second grade. No other school has come close in comparison to Pantera Elementary. The Academics, the staff, the students and parents working together truly deserve 5 stars.

Pantera is truly a great school!!!!! I am currently a student at this school and have 1 year left!!! I've been at Pantera since kindergarten and every teacher I had never failed to help me. The librarian is very friendly and gets many books for the school! There are many new electives to choose such as choir, music, tennis, chess, and more!!!! The teachers focus a lot on testing which benefits us a lot! There are many school activities and fundraisers such as the jog-a-thon which happened on valentines, students ran to raise money for the school! A great way to promote exercise and benefitting the school at the same time! I would recommend this school to all my friends and family!!!!

Pantera is an oasis in the desert. It's a shining star in Pomona Unified School District. Pantera is an excellent school the teachers are comitted, students are motivated, PTO is very helpful and Principal Todd provides exceptional leadership. What makes it really amazing is Pantera is a topnotch school despite being in a mediocre school district.

The school is great. I will give it 95% satisfaction. But I just feel it is lacking a little something. I don't exactly know what it is. Maybe it should get more involved with inter-school activities/competitions.

all staff at pantera are great! from the janitors, nurses, and adminstrative staff to the teachers and parents. That's what makes a great school and keeps the tests scores up, Everyone participating and having input. With little funding from the district the teachers can still make learning fun and creative and do it with a smile. All staff at pantera care about all the kids. The food is not good but it's not the schools fault its the districts. they are the one's that provide the menu

School shows no concern for bullying behavior exhibited by older students towards younger students. I, the parent of the 'victim', was treated like persona non grata for being concerned for my student's well-being. Students self-segregate themselves by race. Food served in cafeteria is inedible. PTO is run by mothers who have had their students in the school the longest. Suggestions by parents of K-3 are put down by existing cliques.

Pantera Elementary School is an outstanding school with qualified teachers, staff and various educational & enrichment programs. Pantera's highly effective PTO raises funds through one major campaign which provides funding for additional educational programs and assemblies, instructors in Art and PE, and funds other items not covered by the school's annual operating budget. The campus is very clean. The front office staff is welcoming. Last but not least, Pantera is one of the highest ranked schools in Calif. based on Academic Performing Index test scores. Not only do students receive an excellent education, but they seem happy, motivated and positive.

Excellent School - High Standards, great expectations, (yes- way too much emphasis on math and language in early grades, give them some culture!)greatest teachers, minimum administration, low key front office, needs better arts/science music programs, PTO needs to realize they have to do some work instead of just collecting money and re-directing to programs. Overall I am very happy with some possible adjustments in future. Pantera, relax about test scores you're doing fine and always will be considering the population. Let's enrich the programs! How 'bout after school daycare, and more emphasis on culture and science. Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Pantera. Happy that my kidds are there!

You would be extremely lucky to get into this school! Pantera ranks in the top 1% of the state for test scores. The principal sets extremely high standard for both the students and staff and all of the teachers are just outstanding!

I am a student there in 5th grade, and I think that Pantera Elementary School is great! Pantera Park is directly across from the school, and on special occasions, we go there. Chess Masters (which I am in), Mad Scientist, LifeTouch, and many others are activities we do at Pantera.
