PDL is a happy place to be. We have seen huge changes over the last 18 months following a change of Principal. A great learning enviroment because we have wonderful parents, staff and community.

I love this school. The entire staff is incredible. They know the children not just by names but needs. There is something to be said about that. It's in a small close community with a very laid back feel. The parent involvement is heavy and the children seem to really strive. I have two kids here both with individual needs (IEP and 504 plans). Their plans and needs are taken into consideration daily seriously. This is the first school I've had my kids at that 'get it'. Such great teachers as well. You can tell they really enjoy their students.

Park Dale Lane is a great nieghborhood school in the heart of Village Park. The community mirrors that of Encinitas as a hub of arts education, gardening adn green living. The PDL music program is funded by the PTA and teaches world drumming, guitar and vocal rhthyms., Students participate in hand on science and yoga rotations at least once a week. The diverse population brings a rich community learning environment. I have had four students come through this school and am a very proud alumni parent. PDL is part of my childrens foundest memories.

PDL is an outstanding school with a dedicated community of students, parents and teachers. Everyone works together to create a positive experience for all children. Parents volunteer often and are encouraged to come on campus. The school is currently being remodeled and will look incredible upon completion!

Park Dale Lane is a wonderful school. Strong community feeling, involved down-to-earth parents, and dedicated staff. We have two children there and have had all positive experiences. They are truly thriving, especially since the new principal started this past year. She has great ideas and is available and responsive to parent concerns.

Park Dale Lane needs some up-to-date reviews. PDL is a wonderful community school with a fantastic new Principal. Mrs. Greenberger is dynamic, caring, fun, committed, and full of great ideas. The parents are very involved and hard-working. The teachers and staff are extremely dedicated. Overall, a fantastic school!

Horrible experience here. My daughter attended for 1st grade. She has never had a problem before this school or since. She was bullied constantly both in class and in their after school daycare. They didn't meet any of her needs with her speech, math, etc. The principal was a joke. My daughter got attacked and bitten &I was never notified! They took no action against other student and when I required an explanation from principal about their procedures &bullying policies I was given no information and acted as though the school had no problem. I replied how while waiting for the meeting (which he was 20 minutes late for) there were two different mom's furious with the front office complaining about their respective kids getting bullied constantly even attacked. Academically it was a joke compared to the the other schools she attended. It was like a repeat of kindergarten while she was there. She was behind when she switched schools the following year. Teacher had no clue regarding classroom control and made no efforts to resolve conflicts in the classroom. I would never send my kid here and warn any parent looking to move in the area to not or if you are get a transfer

We have had a wonderful experience at Park Dale Elementary. The staff is warm and caring and values the children more than test scores. The teachers are always willing to listen to your concerns and ensure that each child's needs are met.

My son has spent 4 years at Park Dale Lane and has really been happy there. The teachers are great and the parents and PTA are really involved. We lived in another state for a couple of years and PDL is above and beyond the out of state school.

We have been very unsatisfied with our grandson s education! My child was introduced to more destructive behavior here then he has ever been in his life. When my daughter came to us with her concerns we thought she was exaggerating, only to find out it was worse then she said. We are greatly disappointed. Sorry Encinitas what a let down.


Posted March 30, 2008

We have been unhappy with PDL since day one with our child. I cannot say that it is the teacher at all, but possibly the administration. After complaints about the Kindergarteners being left out on the playground unsupervised, or in the rain and mud, or with NO teacher in sight at all, days later the principal gave notice of her 'resignation'. It's the strangest mix of families. It's not the worst school but certainly leaves a LOT to be desired. Unless you like having your child sing rap songs and dressing in street gang garb for a Holiday concert. My view is that children will get enough of POP culture everywhere else, there is much more appropriate material to teach in a music class. Disappointed!!

After reading the last few posts I am shocked that some of the parents feel this way. I have had an amazing experience at PDL with a 3rd grader and and a 1st grader. I do believe that there are parents out there that do not participate so do not get the full value of the school. I think PDL is a well rounded school with great teachers and support staff.

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.

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.
