My son started kindergarten last year and had Mrs Kuehfuss. You could not ask for a more patient and wonderful teacher. My son went in not knowing the alphabet to coming out reading, writing and proficient in math. She taught the kids how to solve problems with each other and was always accessible. The icing on the cake was on the last day of school my son accidentally returned public library books. We emailed her after school was out and she drove to our house to return the books to us. She also went out and bought my son a special thing to help him learn to write because of his specific issue he was having. I can't say enough about what a wonderful teacher she was and am so thrilled to have had her.

My son started at La Fetra in Kindergarten he had the best teacher you could ask for Mrs. Rodriquez. Now this year he has the best 1st grade teacher Mrs. Kuga I am very pleased to say my son is part of La Fetra Pride and wouldn't want him to go to any other elementary school. Thanks

My son started kindergarten in Aug 2012 here. He could barely write and draw when he came. His teacher Mrs. Julie Rodriguez has had a phenomenal influence on him. He is doing very well now and writes beautifully. Due to the encouragement provided in the class, he is now an AR student on his way to his jewels. Parents are very actively involved and Mrs. Rodriguez is never too busy to talk before and after school. He way of handling the kids is amazing. I am so grateful that my son got her as his teacher which has laid a solid foundation for his career. He loves going to school. I love that GUSD really makes a great effort to reach out to the parents and keep us involved. Any change or new thing going on in school is communicated both via phone voicemail as well as emails.as well as fliers in school folders. I love that the whole class parents as well as Mrs. Rodriguez are very active via email and keep each other informed.

My son's been at this school for the past two years and really likes it. He has many nice friends with awesome parents/families. Pros: An extremely involved PTA;a great series of garden beds where each class grows fruits, veggies, flowers; the before and after school care is incredible (7-7:15AM curbside drop-off, closed at 6PM), as is summer school (lots of field trips and water days-for a very reasonable rate); there is also a strong emphasis on homework and reading; almost daily automated updates from the school on events, etc. Cons: some of the staff are rude and will ignore you. Teachers are generally fantastic, but some are less so. There is a new principal who is more visible than his predecessor.

I have had 5 kids go to this school and I would definitely recommend it. I have loved all the different teachers my children have had and have always felt that the teachers are very accessible to discuss any concerns I might have. I don't, however, like the front office staff. They pretty much ignore anyone that comes in to the office and just go about their own conversations and things they are doing. Very rude!

Fantastic school. Both my daughters attend La Fetra Elementary. Great staff, beginning with the cafeteria lady that knows majority of the kids' names, to the librarian that gets the kids totally involved with reading, to the most involved teachers. I'm thankful that my kids have great teachers that helped nurture their creativity and broaden their minds.

La Fetra does a fantastic job at setting high goals for the children and ensuring that the kids can reach those goals. PTA is very active and involved in the process of enriching the experience for kids and families.

Three of my children have attended La Fetra. The teachers and staff care about their students, have high expectations for both the students and parental involvement, and have been sensitive to meeting the needs of my children. Mrs. E. does a great job in collaborating with the teachers. Both the librarian and the technology teacher work hard to ensure that La Fetra has the latest books, computers and software to support a learning environment. I would highly recommend La Fetra.

Both my daughter graduated from La Fetra and my son currently attends as a Kindergartener. The school has excellent teachers from K thru 5 grade. The academic programs maybe considered harder than most schools, as they push their students continually to excel. However, compared to other districts both my kids are far and beyond their grade levels. The school expects and requires a high degree of parent involvement in their child's education. They are however somewhat lacking in sports activities.

My child did not do so well at this School. It seemed as though the staff did not care enough to give my child the attention he needed. He continued to spiral down and completely lost his will to learn. I would not reccomend this School to anyone who is thinking about moving into this area.

I love this school and so does my daughter. I have had great experiences with the teachers. They try hard to include the parents in what is going on.

La Fetra is excellent! The teachers there are extremely talented and seem to love teaching. The new principal has done an outstanding job as well. Many of the class rooms were recently re-modeled as well. The after school program is terrific--unbeatable staff! My son doesn't want summer to begin because he loves school and the after school care so much. We feel we're getting a private school education at no cost!
