My children attend this school. Their teachers are willing to help them in any way they can and as a parent I'm satisfied this is the case. I've met with some and have a good relationship with them. As a parent you only want the best for your children - to strive to succeed in SCHOOL. Only downfall I have with the school is the administration personnel. They seem not to care or listen to issues you may have with your children. Teachers are great!

My child attends this school and the teachers have been great. They do many activities at the school during lunch. They have field trips for the kids, this year they have visited colleges football games, Magic Mtn. School dances, 8th grade dance and Knotts for 8th grade. The year book this year is in all color. Zangle is a great too to review status of homework and test scores, most teachers are very timely with this tool.

Wayne Ruble is one of the best in Fontana. Would be nice as a student if I can check for homework on the WR site and be able to down load any sheets that I may need for homework. School offers many students activities which is nice.

My daughter feels like the teachers at this school are not taking their job seriously. The lack of leadership is obvious to the students, you do not see any after school activities where teachers and leadership is involved or helping out. Homework is not posted on the internet for kids to check if they missed anything during class. Another parent had to guide me on how to check Zangle to view my childs grades and that is a great tool, I have to say this is a great tool because I can view current grades on test, attendance, and GPA, student ranking.

My child came from Riverside Unified School District where she was doing good and a lot was expected of her. When she first arrived at Wayne she knew more then anyone in her classes. After attending for over a year she is now doing average work. No expectations being given out by teachers what so ever. You can tell some teacher don't take there job seriously. Some dress like the students and come to class disorganized.

For a FUSD school this school is above average but compare to SGV it is just average. My daughter feels the teachers are disorganized. She is getting great grades but I think they baby her. The last school in San Gabriel Valley, the staff kept up the site to view my daughters grades. All of the teachers posted all assignments in advance on the website for parents to view on a daily basis and homework for the following week was posted on Friday's for students to begin on her homework.

My son is a sixth grader and is loving the experience. Teachers are very attentive. Mr. Castillo turned my C/D student into a A student. A big thanks to Wayne Ruble and their terrific staff!

Posted May 30, 2008

We were very unhappy with our experience at Wayne Ruble. It seems that the teachers our son specifically had were disorganized, and not capable of working with gifted and talented students. This was our first year year and unfortunately our last.

I have a daughter who is currently going there now and found that the teachers pushed her in the right direction to challenge herself to excel academically. I am surprised that the ratings are not more than what is listed when I see the teachers give so much to the students?

About these ratings
