Wonderful School! Great Teachers! Caring staff. Challenging coursework for elementary school. Keeps everyone informed and on track for success.
Academically, this school is great! However, that's not all I look for in a school. Administration and staff seemed to be selectively welcoming to those that were familiar to them and allowed exceptions to certain procedures for those they favored. Parent participation is a big thing there, which is great, but there seems to be no compassion for the single parent who can't volunteer time. Biggest on my list of disappointments is the school's lack of diversity. I'm aware that they can't control that but I believe a big part of my son's education is not just the subjects he learns but whether he's in an environment where he's exposed to different cultures and beliefs by having a diverse group of friends.
Teacher are so committed. Not bulling allowed by peers volunteers-parents and staff. Safe and secure. Nobody can walk in if not through the front office. The rest of the school is gated and locked. Very clean. An awesome school to learn and have fun!
The teachers, the principle and the office staff are wonderful. We had a great first year at Elliott Ranch! We couldn't be more pleased with this school!
This school is great acdemically however to a certain point too academically. It drills the students too much on tests and I believe its due to trying to hold a high API score. Teachers are great academically however do not take the time to really get to know the child or parents for that matter.
As a former employee and a parent of a student who went K-6...honestly I have no idea why ER is a 9 out of a 10. I can't imagine what else they can possibley to do be better. I had a child go to top priv Catholic School and one who went to ER....ER BY FAR was academically, community, teacher involvement, administration, and on and on the BEST school ever. I'd move across the states to go there again.
Elliott Ranch has provided both of my kids a wealth of knowledge, has great staff, and keeps the parents really involved.
I love Elliott Ranch because it's a friendly school where my children have received a good education. The teachers are helpful and show lots of school spirit and pride. ER is AWESOME!!!!
Great school and great teachers. Everything a parent could ask for for their child.
Our school has the best community. Whenever there's a need, parents come together to find a solution.
This is our first time at Elliott Ranch. This school is in a very small school where the children who live in the neighborhood come. Now that we are cutting back on classes I think it is unfair to make students that live here move to another track while children that are not from our area get our students track! I think, parents who enroll their children need proof of residency before they can enroll.
ER is an excellent school. I can't say enough about the faculty and staff there. They are unified and communicate well with parents. I have a 4th and 6th grader there and both their teachers have shown a great concern for them. My 6th grader loves the art docent lessons and my 4th grader is excited about sports. I am pleased with ER and their school overall.
E.R. is a great school and I feel priveldged to send my 3 kids here. We have been at this school since 2003. I have a 2nd grader, 5th grader, and 6th grader. Considering Ca. continual budget cuts and I think this school has done a fantastic job with it's resources. The PTO is fantastic with fund raisers. The teachers are awesome. The vice principal and principal are encouraging and always present. Despite having a 900+student body I think the administration does a great job trying to get to know all the children and their families. The spirit rally's are awesome. The Spring Fling and Fall Dances are great. Yes. the homework is at times overwhelming but I know no matter where life takes them the study habits they have learned at E.R. will take them far. My Kids are getting a great education! A+ to E.R.
Elliott Ranch is an amazing school. They have a very strict grading standard and demand that the kids work hard to earn their grades. Nothing is given away. As a parent, you can sleep easy knowing that your child is being adequately prepared for a future of learning and higher education. If you are new to ER and your child was getting B's in their previous school, be prepared for a culture shock and a report card full of C's. I also like the way the school exposes the children to college at a very early age. The school creates an environment where attending college is not the exception, it is the norm. ER is a great school and continues to display the hard work and dedication that is required to succeed.
Elliott Ranch is a terrific school! I have 1 daughter in 2nd grade and another in Kindergarten. Both love their teachers and have always had positive contact with all the adults there. They love the Art Docent program and are always excited about school. All their teachers have been very responsive via email or notes sent home. The teachers freely offer accelerated work and even email me anecdotes about my children! The staff seems very cohesive & the admin is mindful of not disturbing classes during instructional time. To parents who have complaints: if your child is not succeeding, shouldn't YOU be the one pro-actively contacting the teacher instead of waiting to hear the bad news? We LOVE E.R.!
My daughter started kindergarten when Elliott Ranch first opened and is now in sixth grade. I am proud to say that she is a straight A student. I give the credit to the staff and our parenting. To the parents complaining about their childs grades I must say they need to quit blaming the teachers and look at themselves and their child!
The grade standard is ridiculous! I find it hard to comprehend how my child is bring receiving low grades on classroom assignments. Somewhere along the line you would think the teacher would realize there is a problem and try to fix it.
The standard of education at Elliott Ranch is excellent. The principal and teachers are very committed to the students, and create opportunities for getting parents involved in their child's development.
I hate to say but some of the teachers are pretty unresponsive. We emailed to my daughter's 1st grade teacher to express our concern but we hardly got her response. The teacher should be more responsive. Also, the low grade policy has to be improved. When kids in general can't get satisfying scores means the teachers have to improve their teaching.
