This school from the outside looks to be ignored, the school grounds are filled with trash. The landscape is not maintained, weeds are every where, bushes are not trimed, grass not cut and so on. The kindergraden play ground is always filled with tras just blowing around. This needs to be addressed. It's making the neighborhood look poorly.

This school has an extreme problem with student discipline. To insure our child receives a proper education and socializes with well-behaved and well-mannered we have opted to pull our child from Naranca. Naranca does not have a zero tolerance policy regarding bullying and violence.

We really miss this school. I was pleasantly surprised by Naranca. My son just blossomed there. He learned so much and Mrs. Burke was great about communicating with me.

This is my daughter's third year at Naranaca and we love it. All of her teachers have been great! She is in second grade and doing quite well. She attends the extended day program and has a lot of fun. She gets help with her homework and does a lot of other fun activities that help foster her learning!!

My son is in First grade. He has been doing pretty well. Naranca does have alot of things going on for the kids. I like that they seperate them at times and put them into groups with other students from other classes so they get to learn to interact with others. The only thing I dont like is where the children eat. Its outside and there is bugs flying around and landing on there food...Sometimes its hot and theres nothing to keep them cool. But other than that I have nothing bad to say about this school.

Thus far, Naranca Elementary has been a positive experience. My daughter's teacher is great; the curriculum is substantial and she is learning a great deal. My daughter is not bilingual. I have no personal experience with relation to disciplinary issues. The school offers a lot of events for income sensitive families. There is much enthusiasm for parental and family involvement (Family Reading Friday, Parents on the Playground, etc.). The Extended Day Program is amazing -- my daughter has a lot of fun and learns while she is there.

My two grand children started attending school at Naranca this year. One little 1st grader and 1 5th grader.We moved to El Cajon in June from North Carolina. We just fell in love with the teachers and staff of Naranca. They went out of their way to make all of us feel welcomed and to help relieve the tension of our children of being in a new school and a long way away from their old school and their little friends. I want to say Thank You to everyone at Naranca from helping to make this transition so much easier. Have a wonderful year, and we are so proud to be a part of Naranca School.

My son is in the fourth grade at Naranca and he loves it. I find that the teachers put the students first in education and safety. The teachers are polite and caring. They will address any concerns you may have about your child's education. The teachers will give suggestions and help you find ways to help your child do better in school. Naranca has a very good communication system between teachers and parents.

My child is a 4th grader at Naranca and I can't find enough good things to say about this school and it's staff. The staff is caring, responsible, and I do believe in love w/ their jobs. The students are polite, responsible, and friendly. The curriculum is challenging and every child is encouraged. As far as safety issues go, Naranca puts the students first I am sure. The efficiency of their system in the morning and at dismissal is a time saver and surely being misinterpreted by some as a lack of caring.

My son is currently attending Naranca Elementary & is in the 1st grade. Children's safety is critical in todays society & should be #1 on the priority list. But not on Naranca's list. Naranca's priority is to keep the children off school premises at all times if possible. First they have no cafeteria and the kids are forced to eat lunch on benches outside in the cold or heat. Second the children will not be let 'in' the gates if they arrive early. Yet once school is let out the children are forced out to the front of the school beyond the gates and released.
