Great school up until this year, sadly it seems they have changed over to Common Core and I really believe nothing good can come from it. Teachers have to spend more time learning news ways to confuse students and getting the answer correctly isn't the goal, but showing some extra long way to do it seems all that counts. I remember having to memorize my math and I was good and my daughter was very good up to last year. I believe that if we continue to follow the path of CC we are dumbing down our children. Also I really believe the food in most schools I wouldn't serve my dog. I went the other day and looked at the what they called a salad bar and it was turning brown and was not really a salad just lettuce. Bland foods and lots of starch's - for the same price and a little extra effort the kids would eat there and get a healthy choice, because it not even close. Other then that the school is great Admin does their very best with the tools they are given and Families help a lot.
I am a student at Windrows. Windrows has great security on the playground. They have many proctors to watch us. I've liked most of my teachers. I enjoy Accelerated Reader and Battle of the Books. I like how the teachers give us big projects. I have a great time enjoying the many books they have in their library. The assemblies are very educational, yet fun. Mr. L. lets us know about all upcoming events. There are many sports activities that I enjoy during PE. WINDROWS IS THE BEST SCHOOL EVER!
Great school and what a great principal! It's rare when all teachers are fond of their principal! Looking forward to my 3 children getting an education here!
Could not think of a more nurturing school for my children. The enitre staff has been a pleasure to deal with. Great Administrators, Teachers, office, and parent helpers. My child is definitely better for attending this school
I have had nothing but a great experience at Windrows. I don't know what this person is talking about. Based on this person's post, I wonder if the help he/she is giving is very good, since the post is filled with numerous errors in grammar. I drove my children away from their home school so that they could attend a school where the staff looks out for their best interest and respects my family and kids. If your child is not experiencing the level of success, then I would look at what the success can be for the indivdual. Not all children can attain the same level of success. My Learning disabled child will always struggle with reading and we know and accept that. This is no ones fault, just they way he is. They worked with him and He LOVED it there
I have a son at windrows he is in the second grade and in my opinion the teachers are failing him miserabaly. In kindergarten and 1st grade they knew he was suggling but continue to promte him to the next grade. I spend anyware between 1 1/2 to 2 hours a night on homework and am at my witts end. I have now enrolled him in kumon in hopes that starting at his cuurent level of understaning which is two year behind. I know of other parents that have resorted to pulling thier kids out and moving them to private school. That will be my next option. Regardless I find this situation very disheartning. This is my second child to end school in rancho cucamonga my first had the same experience. It is simple overwhelming not to be able to see your kid have a level of success in education .
Simply cant say enough good about the school and the teachers. We have 2 girls still there and one that already compleated k-5 there. The teachers all really care about the kids and Mr L is the best. He really takes his job to heart and cares about the kids and the school.
Windrows is a great school! The teachers, staff and principal are wonderful.
We LOVE this school! We have had 3 of our 4 sons attend this school and our youngest will bein in the fall 08. The principal is wonderful as well as the teachers and the staff! There is a lot of parent involvement and everyone wants the very best for your children!
I have two children enrolled at Windrows and I couldn't be happier with the grades they bring home. My kids enjoy school and are fortunate to have quality teachers and staff who I feel genuinely care about them.
Windrows is a fantastic school with a family like atmosphere. The Staff, Administration and PTA are great. It is easy to get involved and the curriculum is second to none. All the teachers are very qualified and work well together. The staff in the front office is easy to work with. Best school in the district for us.
Great school, wonderful teachers, and lots of learning. Could not be happier with the staff, they really work as a team.
We love Windrows!! We have two children that attended Windrows K-5 and our youngest is now in his 4th year.The staff is wonderful!Windrows is like one large family. We highly recommend our school!
Our daughter has been going to Windrows for 4 years. We have had great caring, compassionate teachers and a wonderful principal. The academics are excellent, parent involvement is great. We look forward to another wonderful year with our new principal.
This is a good school. There will be a new principal this next year but he has worked with Windrows in the past.
I think this is an outstanding school. My son has been here for 2 years now and I would recomend this school to anyone.
GREAT SCHOOL, BEGINNING WITH THE PRICIPAL! TEACHERS ARE GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS.
I had my daughter enrolled in a 'private school' for 2 weeks during her K year. She was not happy and neither were mom and dad. We decided to do some research on Windrows and I quickly decided this is the school for our daughter. We soon found warmth, understanding and a quality teacher (Mrs. Sheasby). She has now moved on to 1st grade and still continues to love 'her school' and still has a great teacher (Mrs. Mock)! Thank you to all the staff for loving what they do!
Our Granddaughter has attended #indrows since k-4. My husband and I know Mr. and Mrs. VK for 18 years, they are the most loving caring pepole, and love their kids at home and school. The teachers are never going to be out-rated, they have such a high standard for themselves. Thank you, so much!
