The teachers and staff are very supportive of the students. It is a safe and caring campus which focuses on education. There is a lot of parent participation. Curriculum is comparable to similar areas. The principals main focus is on attendance rather than student welfare. She appears to be a good manager but, not an effective leader. She comes across as demeaning and does not have the ability to gain strong support.
My children have been attending this school for 7 years. The teachers have been caring, professional and always made themselves available for parent questions or concerns. I've been impressed with how many of the teachers spend their own time finding ways to teach and capture students interest within the strict limitations given to them by the administration. In addition, the principal is supportive and active with both staff and students. The teachers have made every attempt to teach my children, not simply teach to a test. My children have flourished in this school.
I am disappointed to see such a vicious and childish response from one of our teachers. I can honestly say this school is outstanding. I have experienced nothing but support from the staff and teachers at this school. The environment is supportive, encouraging and safe. This makes me sad because it hurts our school. The people who work and volunteer at the school strive to make a safe, educational and happy environment for our children. We work together with the community to do so. It is a parents right to express their feelings. Hopefully, you will give us another chance to do better.
good communication between most teachers and principal. administrative staff is aways helpful. positive learning environment. students are encouraged to be respectful. safe school. over all, great school.
Kind of ironic that a parent gets on the internet to complain about a teacher who was on the internet not paying attention to there child. Who was paying attention to your child while you were on the internet complaining? Maybe we should turn you in to CPS for child neglect. This is incredible, if you have an issue with a teacher talk to the teacher. Do not complain about them on the internet because your child received a low mark and now you are upset.
Horrible teacher involvement for one particular 4th grade teacher! She would rather shop on the internet than pay attention to the students in need of a little extra help.
I have two children in the MRE and we are very pleased with the level of attention both my children receive with their learning. Some teachers communicate more than others, so the expectations of communication needs to come from the parent(s). The schools extra assistance programs are great! We have had one child in the speech and reading programs and this has helped tremendously. Overall the school is a great fit for my children.
I have a 4th grade boy who attends MRE> He is an E/D child with some L/D and the staff there have been phenomonal in seeing that he reaches grade levels. He has progressed more in the 4 months he's been there than all the years in Stockton Unified!
I was sceptical about placing my children in the public school system. However, our experience with Marengo Ranch Elementary has been outstanding. One of my sons has autism; the principal and staff have been very responsive to his needs. As a result he is able to meet and sometimes exceed grade-level standards across all areas.
Amazing school! A true sense of community exists at MRE. Both of our children have attended this school throughout their elementary school years. We were very excited to learn that our youngest daughter will be staying another year since they are adding sixth grade next year! The staff not only works hard on the academics, but also focus on building strong character too. Marengo Rocks!
I love this school and it's teachers/staff. My child started at mre in second grade and was immediately placed in speak classes and given an sst. In most school it could take years for her to get an sst but they saw a need and tested her. She was 1 1/2 years behind in reading and suffered from a visual, processing disordered. Since second grade my child had received the extra help through resource teaching and speech. Mre always has new way to improve our children's life, socially, value wise, etc. And through the leadership of her caring teacher i am honored to say she is in fifth grade and is an a student who has made the principal honor role three time in fourth grade. We are lucky to have this school..In fact we are to move but are holding off until she finished at mre.
As parent who is very involved in the educational experience of two children, I'm disappointed with the performance of the school and the teaching staff. I regret having to enroll my children at this school.
This is a wonderful school the teachers are teaching all standards test scores are up, Parent participation is awesome, a great PTA, Marengo is like a family everyone cares about all of the students, I have 3 children here and am very pleased with all aspects!
I have had 2 of my sons attend MRE and I have been extremely happy with the level of attention that the teachers offered to both of my sons. Both of my boys have had difficulties in different areas were in other school when I approached the subject I was told they weren't bad enough to recieve any help. When I approached the teachers here at MRE they gladly sat with my sons and I and went to work on a plan of attack. This was the best thing for my sons to see the teachers really did care and were really concerned about their individual needs. I would deffinately recoment this school to others.
From first appearances this seems like a great school. However test scores are very low, and math does not seem to be a priority. I don't know if it's the year-round issue which leads to less team-like cooperation or if it's the chosen math curriculum but I am very disappointed. We just slipped back to a 5 out of 10 ranking and my child is bored, not challenged.
This is by far how a school should be ran. Every aspect of the school is a positive one. I will be saddened when my children grow out of it, but thankfully McCafrey has a great following!
From the office staff, programs, facilites & teachers by far it's our very favorite. The 'Afternoon/Morning Sings' (assemblies) are awesome, as well!
