It is very hard for us to leave Encino Charter Elementary. It is such a wonderful school and everyone there is kind, warm, welcoming and passionate about teaching. My son attended Encino Charter Elementary for first grade and his teacher, Ms. Bunchiyan, was patient, caring, considerate and wonderful. He was lucky to have her as a teacher. He was also lucky to have Ms. Diane who tutored him and was incredibly dedicated to helping him. I have never met a teacher of her caliber before. The principal, Mrs. Koff, is a also amazing. She is a great leader, experienced, dedicated and thoughtful. She knows every child in the school by name. The best coaches I have ever met are also here. They are professional, young and energetic.
We are going to miss the community at Encino Charter Elementary very, very much. Thank you for everything and we wish you all the best!

This is our 3rd Year at Encino and so far we have been very happy with the teachers, office staff, parents volunteering and great communication. The principle is very involved, you can see her checking the grounds every morning, even the classrooms. My son is doing very well academically thanks to the wonderful teachers he's had, the school has very high expectations from every single student enrolled. Everything about this school is well organized, the enrichment classes are so much fun and the kids are kept motivated and happy learners.
Very thankful for all the great people who make this school so amazing from teachers, principal, office staff all the way to the parents involved and students!
We are in our 6th year at this school and I have nothing but praise for the teachers, staff and parent volunteers. The teachers are amazing, passionate educators who work tirelessly to support our kids, teaching them not only the standard curriculum, but also teaching them the importance of responsibility, leadership and citizenship.
This is our 7th year at the school and I still firmly believe it is one of the best schools around. Parent involvement is wonderful. The kids in the SAS program are adequately challenged and the kids not in the SAS program are adequately nurtured. The teachers and principal are wonderful and know every child by name. Coach Dimitri is very cool as is Mr. Rodriguez (computers)
My granddaughter started Encino Elementary Charter school Aug 13, 2013. She is a kindergarten student. I have been on campus to drop off, help in the classroom testing and and for pick-up. I take her too the library and have met several teachers and other parents. I have attended school functions I have been impressed over and over again with how well the school is run and how well the kindergarten classes have settled in. They are learning so much and the class time is packed with lessons which give them a sense of adventure and expectation as they are learning so many things at one time. The older children are bright, well spoken and seem happy in the school. The expIectation that these 5 year olds are capable of being able to learn to write, read, listen, and learn early math skills is an exciting. I am very impressed with this School.
We feel so lucky to have our son at Encino! My son is attending K and he really loves it! . I can't tell enough about Ms. Romero, she does an outstanding job teaching the students! .She is caring, and concerned about students from the second they arrive until the minute they leave.The parent involvement is amazing! This is a wonderful school!
I am very happy we switched to Encino Charter Elementary. My child has never done better academically and otherwise. She went from 2s in behavior and 2s and 3s in academics to straight 3s all around. Now we are aiming for 4s, and she has one of the best 5th grade teachers I have ever met.
