This was the best school I've ever been to, the teachers are extremely nice and wonderful. I wish I could have stayed here longer. I miss all of my friends who didn't go to middle school with my and all of the teachers I had to leave. In middle school, you don't get to know your teachers as well as you do in this school. It is pretty tough going in six different classes at a time. I wish I could have had stayed at this amazing school. It is a great school to learn from. -Class of 2014, Charlie Hinh Nguyen

My son went to this school from first grade to fifth grade. We were really happy with the school environment and academic performance. We all sad that our family had to relocate. When my kid started his 6th grade at a new school, we realized how superior Ethan Allen school of GGUSD compared to any other elementary school in CA in academic performance and safe enviroment for kids to learn.

My child have special needs and this school really help her to exceed her limitations. She's happy and love to come to school, she feels happy and safe, as a parent that makes ME happy and feel like I don't have to worry about her when she's at school. We were at other elementary schools before going to Ethan Allen and my child didn't like school until we transfer her to Ethan Allen. She was bullied because she was different from the kids at the OTHER elementary schools, but at Ethan Allen, I could see a positive difference in her. Ethan Allen have exceptional staffs from the office staffs, to the teachers, to the janitors. I can't began to tell you how impressed I was and still am with this school.

We love this school! We love the principal, the secretary, and the teachers. We're lucky that we finally got into Ethan Allen. It's a hard school to transfer to if you don't live within their boundaries. I live far from Ethan Allen but I am willing to drive my kids to this school because they're so happy and thriving plus they're learning so much. This school is beyond my expectations for a public school.

Ethan B. Allen Elementary has taught me compassion in every subject and to learn to love and love to learn. Everyone treats each other as family and support each other immensely.

My child just finished KA, and hoping the 1st grade teachers are better than KA. The communication was seldom as the teacher was engaged with/by same parents every morning, for extended periods, and seem to ignore other parents. There was no consideration for working parents who could afford 5-10 mins before class. I often wondered if the kids were ignored just like the parents were....

As a blue ribbon school, Ethan Allen has many great activities. They have encouraged us students by giving us excellent staff such as dr.Heughins(the principal), Ms.Lucille(the secretary), Mrs.urey, Mrs.Erickson, and Ms.hoyer. We will miss Ethan B. Allen very much always remember it in middle school. I will miss 6th grade alot.

Great principal, wonderful teachers, and great environment for kids. Besides being a Blue Ribbon and Distinguished school with top API scores, Staffs and teachers are very involved with many,many good and wonderful extracurricular events that allows kids to shine. Parents are great at contributions their time and effort. My kids are very lucky to go there. Thanks Ethan Allen and staff for all you do.

The staff at Allen Elementary are by far the best staff I have seen at any school my son has been to. We moved here last year and my son has never been happier in a school environment or so excited to learn. The Principle, Lucille, Mr. Byrd and all the staff in the office and classrooms really give their heart to the job of teaching these young minds. I've never seen such an involved group of people.

THE BEST!!! Staff are wonderful. Lucille is the best secretary one has ever had!!! Some teachers are excellent but some also are not very good with communication with parents (slow in responding to parents). Over all though this school is wonderful!!!! Students are well-behaved and very hard working. Parents are very involved in their kids' educations.

Our daughter spent her first year here last year. Her teacher was Mrs Hower. She exhibited an attitude of true compassion and enthusiasm that was greatly appreciated. This school has been a blessing to find. I'd reccomend it to all who are considering it.

The staff is great. The kids are well taken care of. Their learning experience continues to grow everyday and they enjoy to go to school. I have 3 children at this school. They always look forward to go to school each morning. No wondering why Ethan Allen School has high scores every year.

The best school consists of highly qualified great teachers that not only love to teach but also desire to make a difference in the lives of young people . Unfortunately, most of the great teachers this school once had have moved on or left the school.

This school is honestly the best school I have ever been to. The teachers are incredibaly talented (all of them) and are great to talk and have fun with. I regret being in 6th grade becuase it means I must move on and leave my home away from home. I will miss all my teachers, Miss Gomez (who is now the principle of marshall), Mrs. Jansze, especially Mrs. Benedict, and of course Miss Rodriguez. I will miss the rest of my friends and hope they will come to love the school as much as me. I wish everybody will particapate in school activates like the talent shows ( which I was in) and continue to make Ethan Allen a wonderful school.

My child has been attending Allen for four years now. Each year, my child has had excellent teachers and wonderful principal(s). I consider my child to be very fortunate to be attending here.

Allen is great! 90% of the teachers are awesome! My daughter struggled in Math and every teacher she's had (3rd-5th grade) has worked one on one with her, had study groups or assigned her to a tutor. The PTA work hard and do alot for the students. I thought the former principal, Jolie Armitage, was awesome and all the kids loved her. She really motivated them to do their best. Don't really care for the new principal or her secretary...not as friendly or personable as Jolie or Cindy (former secretary).

This was a wonderful school - the teachers I had for fourth, fifth and sixth grade are all gone now but they were really amazing.
