This school is great, from Mr. Ingles to the staff members and Teachers. I had a positive experience with them. My son needed extra help learning and the school set up meetings with Teachers, Psychologists, and Counselors all the way until we were able to identified the problem and gave my son extra help. They also have an after school program that helps me as a mom with my kid's homework and activities. This is a great school that all of my 3 kids attend and they love it.

My son is in kinder and I have had a very positive experience with Mr. Ingles and staff. If I have a question or concern Mr. Ingles and staff has always made themselves available in person or by email. The school staff always emails back timely and really appears to care about their student. Very happy so far with the school and staff.
Principal Mike Ingles is the worse principal of all he so fake to parent's he asks like he cares for the students but its all fake he cares for himself and his staffs. He acts like he's always busy ignores phone calls from parents telling his staff that he's not available but he really is. He always looks irritated by the kids he never looks happy.
The staffs has a hard time contacting parents when something happens to a student. When I came home from work I notice my son had a big black briuse on the left side of his cheeks underneath his eyes. He was fine when i dropped him to school in the morning. But when my son does something wrong they are always on point to call me and gave him a referral slip and no recess for a week. But when something noticeable on a kids face they don't ask the student what happened or notify the parents that the student has a bruise. Thats why they have staffs to look out for the students. I tried calling the school to notify what happened but no answer at all.
The principal has horrible communication skills, he's on a power trip, and condescending. He will hover over the the desk, point at you in a very offensive stance. He doesn't stay on point with the conversation and dances around the matter at hand, doesn't apologize for staff errors made, but rather makes excuses and points blame elsewhere. They have a horrible support team for the special needs students and terrible teachers and terrible speech therapy teacher as well. Not to mention the bus driver of #41 whom speeds, turns the corner on 2 wheels and and arrives too early or to late and leaves my child behind or takes her back to the school with no communication of bus time changes what so ever...
I'm so disappointed of Ms. Renteria, the teacher of K-B. She's one of the most irresponsible teachers I've ever known. If you don't love kids and careless of their conditions then just go for a different professions. Leaving my kid hungry and sitting at the office waiting assuming the parents are late on picking up while my kid was supposed to take lunch which we've already paid for is not acceptable for any parents. We even reminded her personally the day before, and when the office personnel called her and asked about what happened, she simply just said she did not know. This teacher is obviously does not pay any attention to her students. My kid is till going to this school because we have to since we live in the area, but I would never trust this kindergarten teacher ever again.
The previous and current principals and majority of teachers here only care about their jobs. They don't care and could do anything that causes harm to the futures of children with special needs just to keep their jobs. To me, they have evil and cold hearts. This is a very worst school. I would rate this school a "zero star" if the website allows me.
The Principal is all about making the kids feel like criminals - she has more emphasis on negative consequences than she does on positive rewards. We left this school SPECIFICALLY because of the principal.
