Okay! This school went down when Dr.Jones came. It's not as fun. The cafeteria's food went worse. The lunchladys are sometimes rude. When i was in Mrs.Pearson's class (excellent teacher) we couldn't even get through out teaching with all the disruptions in our class. We didn't get to learn everything we were suppose to! I got a tardy slip for missing 5 minutes. But i still got perfect attendance? They didn't give me a Saturday School slip for missing 5 minutes. Now I have to be at school for an extra 5 hours and 55 minutes?!? That's not right.

I totally disagree with the last parent review regarding the comment regarding Dr. Jones. I have met with her regarding my child and she was not only very knowledgeable about ways I could help my son, but also very personable. She's a great asset to this school! Also, lots of excellent teachers here too!

Thus far I have been unimpressed with Dr. Natasha Jones as a principal (2013-____). Based on her history, she never truly spend much time in the classroom.

last year was the best year of my life, school wise. the sixth grade team was the best, especially the GATE teachers. Jurupa Vista also has the GATE club, who meets once a month. the teachers were nice, the kids were nice, and lets not forget the science camp!

I have had two children go thru this school and currently have a 3rd in 5th grade. They have all excelled and are in Gate classes. For the most part all of the teachers are willing to help in all academical areas and communicate well with parents.

This school needs more extra curricular activities. Something to keep the kids involved & interested in attending school.

Growing up in this elementary school was one of my most memorable experiences and all I've ever wanted to do was give back to my school family. There are many people teachers and employees alike that have worked hard to provide a better life for their students. I remember this school and I think back of all the help and inspiration everyone had given me. Without them I would not have had a reason to move forward and now I wish them that same fate.

Kudos to the new principal and all the teachers who worked hard on making this school better. A great leap from the previous leadership. Keep up the good work and hoping for higher API next year...ergo, higher than 5 school rating.

I believe the teachers do their very best. I would like to see less kids per class and after school programs. Overall Jurupa Visita is a good school.

I am not pleased at all with this school. They lack the motivation needed to provide extra curricular activities which could be making a change in children's life, and good habits need to start at a young age. If they start these habits they will stay as they get older and will keep them out of trouble. The teachers are not very good. My son's teacher does not challenge him at all. Th homeork he gives him my 7 year old son can do in about 15 minutes my ten year old son in 10 minutes.

The only problem I have with the schools is that they don't have any extra curriculum after school for students that need that extra help.

My son was enrolled at this school for a brief period of time and he really enjoyed himself. He learned alot as a student in Ms. Duran, Room 18 class. He will miss her and his fellow students. Jurupa Vista has a awesome learning curriculum.

We have had many options in considering placement of our son in the public and private school system. I am a teacher at Jurupa Vista and I give my fellow colleagues accolades. I have been very pleased with all of the teachers at this school- they are very qualified, committed, and devoted to their service. My son is succeeding as a minority (white). He is advanced in reading and math and does not see color. The principal is a very wise and nurturing human being. Some people may not understand his ways, but I will attest that he knows more about education, politics,and interpersonal relationships than many of us will know in a life time.

I am not at all pleased with the quality of teaching at this school. I feel some of the teachers lack the experience it takes to deal with special needs children. For example my child is ADHD and sometimes my child needs a little more help than other children to understand the curriculum that the teacher is explaining. The teachers do not want to take the effort to give that special attention that another child my not require. I know that all of the children need to know that their teachers care about them but sometimes there might be that one child that needs a little more attention than others. I don't think that is to much to ask. I think in the future maybe the faculty should have to take classes on how to deal with special needs children instead of calling the parents everytime their student asks them to many questions and requests that the parents ask their child to not bother the teacher with so many questions.

The teachers I have come in contact with have been excelent. I give them the highest praise. I am not overly pleased with the principal and some of his rules. I'm sure he has reasons for them and much more experience then I ever will, however I do not see a reason the children are not allowed to bring cupcakes (as and example) to school for their classmates on their birthday. If all the kids do not want to participate that is fine, but why not let those that do want to do it? That is just one of the reasons I gave him a low score, there are others.
