This school is okay it seems like all the teachers don't get along as for the principal if you have a problem he tells you what you want to hear it's very disappointing to hear the noon duty ladies screaming at the kids constantly over and over . There should be another way of disappointing kids without screaming at them. There is 1 first grade teacher that screams constantly at her students in her class you could hear it all the time. There are several teachers there that love their job and you could see it in the way they teach and how the kids excel. You could see the tension of staff members not getting along with each other as for the front desk well not always 100 percent friendly. there is a school closer but to get a inner district transfer is too hard.
i am really glad that my daughter attented this school. This is her second year at this school. And im very happy with her last two teachers they were really great..The principal Mr. Snider is doing an excellent job..
I am very disapointed with this school. The Principal has recently been changed and it seems that the entire teaching culture left with the previous Principal. I would stay far away from this school. If i could rate this school less than 1 star I would.
I was very glad that my children attended this school. My daughter attended this school for 3 years and loved all of her teachers. The principal Mrs. Egan is much loved and respected by all children and their parents. Mrs. Egan becomes very involved with each child and therefore develops a personal one on one relationship with each of them. I only wish every teacher had this ability to connect with each of their students. Mrs. Egan returned all of my calls whenever I had any concerns and always managed to resolve these concerns. She is an awesome and loving Principal and extraordinary lady. Arbolita is very fortunate to have her. They also have an extended care center for after school.
My daughter attended k-2 grade at Arbolita. As a parent I became involved with PTA and SSC. I also spent time helping in each of my daughter's classrooms as much as my schedule allowed. This gave me the opportunity to observe the teacher/student relationship. i feel that each of her teacher's did an excellent job. The principal, Mrs. Egan, is also doing an excellent job. Serving on PTA and SSC gave me a chance to work with her at school functions/activities. She is doing a great job in communicating with parents to determine what their needs or concerns are regarding their children. The last three years my daughter spent at Arbolita, Mrs. Egan, my daughter's teacher's and other staff member's I had a chance to meet were all very courteous, professional and gracious.
The teachers at Arbolita work harder than any at any school I have ever been to. The principal is an exceptional leader who is always looking to improve. The Arbolita staff has tremendous heart!
My daughter atended Arbolita from K-2nd grade, and my other daughter attended for just kindergarten. And all I have to say is, Arbolita is definitely the most wonderful school that a child could attend! The really make the kids shine as bright as a start. The staff overflows with encouragement and structure. This school is a 5 star school!
