I have a 1st grader who attended kindergarten with the most amazing teacher. She excelled in her curriculum and social aspects of school as well. Unfortunately 1st grade has been so bad that I had to pull her out of school to attend elsewhere. Her excel teacher is really rude, causing my daughter to return home on most days with a broken heart and feeling like a failure. Her regular 1st grade teacher however has been great. The staff have never been my favorite people, even through kindergarten they have shown little concern or care. I have nothing positive or negative to say about the principle. She is a very tough person who will tell you how "unacceptable" it is to show up to school 5 minutes late, which is definitely a bummer. One of the most difficult parts is that although kindergarten maintains a very regular schedule, 1st grade consistently changes its schedule every couple months-ish, for a week at a time (whether it be Friday thru the following Thursday, or a Monday thru Friday) as well as the consistent and odd middle-of-the-week (Wednesday) change-up in schedule where you start school 1 hour early and end 50 minutes early.

The first week of school was chaos! There is a 34 to 1 ratio. This is my sons first year in kindergarten and there was no communication from staff to parents. We parents were told that we would be able to follow our children for the first week of school and on the second day we were no longer allowed to stay with our children. There are not enough staff members at las lomas to care for the children. Some where lost in the shuffle and were escorted back to their teachers. Some teachers were not even aware that one of their students was missing. This experience was very disconcerning and I am condisering transfering my child out of the district. This was not at all how I thought las lomas would be.

The first day of school was awesome! My grandchildren transitioned from private school to second grade at Las Lomas and to observe professionalism/organization on the first day from the staff was impressive. We are looking forward to a successful year.

My son was attending a private montessori school, before attending Las Lomas. My son learned so much at the private school, but due to financial responsibilities, I was forced to send my son to public school. My son's kindergarten teacher is wonderful. I have no complaints with her whatsoever, she is doing her job well. What I do have issues with is how the children are not being challenged enough academically. The standards are so low that in comparison to other children, my son is well ahead of his grade level in all subjects. I don't agree. My son is just where he should be for his age. This may have nothing to do with the school, maybe more so on the states low standards, but in comparison to his last school, I must say it is below what I expected.

I have one in 2nd grade, and 1st grade. They both had an excellent kindergarten year. They loved school and learned a lot. The Roaring reader program, which encourages students to read more is a very good program. My older one had a great teacher during the 1st grade year, and he really learned a lot. Excel program, that started last year also seemed to have done well. Principle is awesome, and lots of great teachers and staffs at Las Lomas! I wish some parents would show more of common sense of courtesy and caring for others. I encounter quite a few who don't follow the rules that have been requested from school....

My son has just finished the second grade at Las Lomas and is getting ready to start at Las Positas school. While I'm excited about the new school, I will miss the attentiveness and dedication of the teachers and staff at Las Lomas. Each of my son's teachers took extra steps with all of her students in recognizing and maximizing everyone's potential. Each teacher was experienced, well-organized, and used effective disciplinary tools. Small class sizes and availability of learning resources really help. Lastly, parent conferences and meetings with teachers at Las Lomas are productive, and I always left each meeting knowing exactly how my son was progressing and where the problem areas were, as well as some tips as to what I could do at home to support his teacher's daily efforts. My only suggestion for improvement is the addition of after-school activities for music, art, foreign language, etc.

The teachers at Las Lomas are awesome! It has been said that children go into the school as question marks and come out as periods. This is definitly not the case here. My children have become more curious and want to learn more about everything. The teachers have inspired their curiosity and created an environment that is so enriching and comfortable for them. My children have enjoyed the learning process and still talk about the fun they had in the classroom with their past teachers at Las Lomas.

My son just started Kindergarden at Las Lomas elementary school. So far so good. My concern is the CAT and Standard test results on 2003 and 2004 is much lower than neighboring city. So far, I see dedicated teachers and staffs who works hard to provide safe comfortable environment for kids to learn and assist those who are English learner. I am anxious to learn more about the school as my son enjoys going to school everyday.

We have found the advancement of the daily cirriculum to be a slow process, our son is bored by the 'same old' daily classroom activities and does not feel safe going to school due to the lack of supervision on the playground. Our son loves school, learning and the challeges of a new project; however, we are displeased with the methods of instruction and the lack of parent/teacher relations that should occur. (ie correspondance, regular testing for advancement opportunites and positive/negative feedback on the behavior, challenges and coaching opportunities observed by the teaching staff. Efforts have been made by the Principal to encourage our son to point out bad behavior offenders. No feedback on reprimands of the student(s) involved has been given, with the exception of a phone call advising it is against school policy for a student to defend himself. We are totally unsatisfied with the respect given to the parents/student that try so hard to 'do the right thing' and be a good role model for others. We have raised our son to always consider the feelings of others and show respect to those around him while conducting himself in an appropriate manner at all times. Going to school should be about learning and socialization not protecting and making excuses for other students that may not have the basics of being a good person.
