Love this school! Don't be fooled by the rating, the school is great for our kids because the teacher to class size is ideal where your child is not just a number but the teachers actually know them by name. The teachers are terrific here as they provide the kids with more care than the other more highly rated schools. Also the other parents are down to earth and friendly. The only slight negative I've had is sometimes the teachers give too much homework.
There is so much violence in this school and there are occasions where police has been involved. It is no secret. They also don't address bullying.
I love sending my son to this school! This is not our home school but I don't have a plan to change him to his home school because we all love this school their way of teaching and the way of behaving with parents!
wow my kids enjoy going there.The principle and teachers are very friendly and always available to answer you.
My son is attending this school from the mid of 1st grade. Teachers are smart, kind and attentive. I hope he will learn a lot at the second grade level. He enjoys every day at that school!
The Vallejo Mill Elementary School is a Great School.The teachers are very nice and helpful.The principle is also very nice and always smile on her face and a good lady.We are very happy to have this school for my daughters.We give this school 5/5 points.Thanks
My daughter is in the Spanish Immersion Program. I think Vallejo Mill is a wonderful school. There is great parent involvement and the teachers are as dedicated as any anywhere. I compare it favorably to other supposedly 'higher-rated' schools in the area.
My son was overloaded here when we moved from So. Cal and it was a shock to me.. he came in kindergarten. His teacher would forget that they had a library day, no homework would come home since the printer was broken, didn't have any graduation .. I could go on and on.. the teacher discouraged parent volunteer and ofcourse didn't have enough time to get things done.. at the end of kindergarten atleast 40% of the kids could n;t read numbers or above 20 or read properly. I am very disappointed with the time he spent. I would say some daycares are better in what they do with the kids. :-(. The principal was never around.. for the time my child went there, I never saw or heard from the pricipal
My school is great, kids love it! The teachers care about the kids. PTA did a great job getting community volunteers to construct a new playground! The oncoming PTA is a very dedicated group of people and will continue to help the school thrive! I'd say to prospective parents to give this school a try and be active on PTA.
This is a really good school despite the notions that people have about ratings. The office staff is wonderful and my child is very happy there.
I went to vallejo mill as a child i left in second grade but i do have great memories there got on here hoping to find a few old friends i remember but havent figured taht out either. glad to see this school is still great as it ever was.
1) This is an excellent school, Very good environment and location. 2) I am very happy with my son, He is now in 3rd Grade 3) Ms Ransom is a very good teacher 4) Principal is very caring and School Office team is excellent, very courteous, polite friendly and helpful.
I love the school. The atmosphere here is very friendly and kid helpful. Teachers are always willing to talk when you need them. Both my children are in the Spanish Immersion program. I got to give credit to the Immersion teachers for enriching my children lives. This school makes it fun to learn and despite their score, they are providing a solid academic foundation for my children. Thank you.
I moved out of the school district and put my kids into another School in Fremont (Parkmont). I must say I really miss Vallejo Mill School. The teachers were better, the facilities were better, and I miss the one on one teacher to student interaction at Vallejo that I don't see at our school. The ratings say that Parkmont ranks higher but I wish it had that old grade school feeling Vallejo Mill did. Maybe it would have been a little easier on me here if the parents were a little nicer at Parkmont.
I LOVE the office staff Marilyn and Patricia. I LOVE all the teachers we have had since my eldest has been there. Mrs. Stroschein is a great Kinder teacher. Mrs. Poole is a very good 1st and 2nd grade teacher depends on her yearly assignment. This year we will have Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Correia. (sp?). The principal is okay. But she is LUCKY to have a great office staff and awesome teachers!! I volunteer a lot in the classroom and sometimes in the office. The test scores may not be super high, but I prefer teacher quality vs. numbers. I believe that as long as you are a involved at school whether from home, at school, in office, or in classroom is the major factor in your kid(s) succeeding in any school.
I don't like this school at all. The teachers are mean and won't respond. My son is bullied all the time. I just hate everything about this school.
My daughter is in 1st Grade and she loves to go to school. Every morning she is excited to start her day in her class because her teacher Ms. Poole makes daily activities so interesting. My daughter is lucky to have her as her teacher. All the office staff are so friendly and courteous.
My daughter is in vallejo mill she is in 1st grade,her teacher mrs.Poole is very nice and polite with her always.iam very happy that my daughter is in this school.
My daughter has been in Vallejo Mill Elementary for about one and half years, now in Grader 3. She is so happy with teacher Mrs. Ng in Grader 2 and Mrs. Ransom in Grader 3. The staff in the office are so nice and friendly; always smile, helpful, answer all questions whenever walking in or on the phone, not like other highly rated schools in the same district.
my daughter was overloaded to this school for kindgarden. Ms. Gold was a great teacher, she really loves kids. After 2 years, my daughter stil miss Ms. Gold. Wish her the best!
