Hi, I need advice for this school. I'm highly considering this school because of the early start. Early drop off is ideal for me. My son will be in kindergarten. I read all the feedback and all sounds great. I guess I just need reassuring. Help? I will be a transfer school our home school is Hodge but they don't have the early drop off or the thing together program for the Kindergartners.


Posted October 9, 2013

I love the principal and office staff! As a transfer, I was worried that there would be problems in registering, but they handled everything and were very gracious. The principal is friendly and approachable. Every time I am there I see her walking around talking to students, parents, or staff. My son loves going to school and his reading has improved dramatically in just this last month at this school. I would recommend the school to everyone!

I really enjoy sending my nine year old son Royal Oaks. The school has alot of spirit & pride.I really feel like the whole school works together to reach a common goal-do the best for our kids.I can't say enough encouraging things about the Principal Mrs. Komodo ski & Vice, Mrs. Lecrone. I could see them physically doing the best they can do everyday! Thank you- it doesn't go unnoticed. Happy Parent

BEST school in Duarte. simply put. especially since the aquisition of our new Prinicipal I have zero complaints ( our previous principal was unaproachable / insensitive to our needs but she's gone! )Excellent academics, outstanding students, very caring teachers, my kids attended a total of 5 yrs with my oldest graduating from 6th grade this year if it wasn't for our poorly rated middle school I would not be moving at all it's unfortunate because I love duarte it has provided a safe environment for my kids... Duarte and Royal Oaks will be missed

We are new to Royal Oaks this year. Our son has always gone to a very small private school. We decided to enter the public school system this year due to our financial situation. We have been so pleasantly surprised by this school and staff. The principal, Mrs. Kolodinski, is very accessable. She is always walking around the campus and participating in all the different activities around the school. Mind Institue is a fascinating concept and all the extra curricular classes are great! Although it is early in the year, it seems that everytime we go to a meeting or school function, we walk away with an even better impression of Royal Oaks Elementary School.

My daughter has been attending RO for 3 years and we love it. We really like all the in school extra programs the school offers-mind institute(teaches students to play the piano and use the computer to develop critical thinking skills), and CGI(teaches math in a fun and interactive way). My daughter also loves all the afterschool programs such as chess club, Spanish, kids theatre, science and art in starting this year. The staff has high standards for academics and behavior. I love having a dress code. The kids can focus on learning and not what everyone's wearing. I would like to see the schools technology updated and I will be talking to the new principal and the PTA to see what we can do to make that happen this year. More parents in our community should take a look at the curriculum and all the school has to offer.

This is our first year at Royal Oaks and we love it! The teachers and Principal are fantastic. We appreciate the high standards across the board - academics, discipline and 'the dress code'. Royal Oaks is the safe and challenging environment needed to produce successful students and adults. We are THANKFUL for all they do for our children.

I went to Royal Oaks, and so did my 2 kids for kinder, 1st, and 2nd. I love the school, but the only fault is the Principal. My son who was diagnosed as moderately autistic received very unfair treatment towards him from her. I found her extremely condescending, judgemental, and a major downfall for such a great school. Excellent teachers, and a wonderful librarian, but an awful disappointment Mrs.Deitra Reed turned out to be.

I have been a Royal Oaks parent for the past 15 years and I wouldn't have my children attend anywhere else. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The principal has high standards and our children only benefit from this. If you expect more, then you will get more. I love the racial diversity you find at Royal Oaks and the learning obtained from this privelege is immeasurable. Royal Oaks is definitely the best school in Duarte.

Overall I think this school is pretty good. My three children went there, although my first child had a different principal. The teachers and staff are great. The only things that I worry about is the principal, Deitra Reed, and how strict they are. Mrs. Reed doesn't connect with her students at all. Also they're too strict with the dress code. Kids should be able to express themselves . The uniforms make them want to rebel.

I think that Royal Oaks is overall a good school.The only thing that worries me is that teachers and the principle are disciplining the kids to much.They shouldn't have to wear uniform either. Let the kids have a little more fun in elementary school. Oh yes and by the way the school Liberian is just wonderful!She really pushes the kids to read in a much more fun way with what they call reading counts.Keep it up Mrs.Thompson!

Royal Oaks school has been wonderful for both of my children. The quality of education is much higher than the other school they attended, and the teachers are wonderful. Both of my children have been enrolled in music classes. Some of the teachers even put lesson plans up on the internet so you can check what your child should be doing, it's great.

I'm very pleasantly surprised at how great this school has been! In second grade they have started a mind institute that teaches them to read music and play piano! The principal and teachers are very pleasant and easy to work with. I hope that more parents get involved to make this school even better.

This school has an excellent academic program. The city of Duarte offers some extracurricular activites, such as a Talent Show and various sports events. The PTA is very active, including inexpensive sale sof uniforms, etc. This is the highest ranking public school in Duarte.

I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Royal Oaks School and especially to Detira Reed, Royal Oaks School Principal. For the last three years my neice and nephew, (who I have legal guardianship of) have attended Royal Oaks and through no fault of there own have suffered severe learning set-backs. If it was not for the continuing support of the teacher, out reach consultant and of course Mrs. Detira Reed I fear that they would have fallen through the cracks. Royal Oaks has helped pull these children up to grade level and excel not only academically but made a dramatic difference to there self-esteem.

Royal Oaks is a very good school with qualified teachers and a supportive office staff. However I'd like to stress to parents to get involved in the PTA, School Site Counsel and volunteer time at the school to show your child that school is a priority. Parents need to take an active interest in their child's school and classwork! Success is built on teamwork!

Royal Oaks is definately one of the best schools in California. Both my children went there. My Daughter Rachel received the Robert J Burns Award for reading and also the Presidents Award from the President George W. Bush for excellence in Reading, and Honor Roll. Unfortunately she could not have done it without the help of her great teachers especially Mrs. Sandi Fender. My son Stevie too had great years at Royal Oaks. My children was very fortunate to have the same teacher except in 5th., but the teachers dedication to all their kids is amazing. The only downfall to this school is Principal Deitra Reed. To my family, we found her to be rude. I don't believe she really spend quality time with students, I think assumption are her style. To all the teachers and day care providers and staff, you have made Royal Oaks a school to be proud of.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
