In all honesty, I really detested the 3rd to 6th grade. My kinder-2nd grade school teachers were satisfactory, but from the 3rd grade on up, I really had a problem with my teachers. The only reason I actually managed to get good grades and know anything that the "teachers" "taught" was from my parents sending me to an afterschool. I learned literally nothing from my 3rd to 6th grade classes.I highly recommend that nobody should consider sending their children to this horrendous school. The teachers are extremely biased as well. For example, Teacher, ________ was biased to the point were she didn't give out detentions to only 1 student even when He/She didn't complete His/Her homework! If you want your child to have a good education I highly suggest that you send your student to a different school. This is coming from the best point of view one could have on insights in a school. Teachers are biased and won't report freely, parents aren't there at school with the students 24/7, and the same reason with teachers for the principal as well. Notice how all the reviews that are above me are by parents. There are almost none by the student, and now, you got one.

as a past student of Los Coyotes i can say that this is a WONDERFUL, AMAZING, ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC school! the 6 years i was attending this school the teachers and staff are SPECTACULAR. The environment of the school is so friendly and welcoming! One of my friends that enrolled in this school when she was in 6th grade was welcomed by the whole 6th grade class and was never looked down upon or bullied! The teachers are strict but know what they are doing. The daycare program is soo fun! i was a daycare student and always LOVED daycare. The teachers for the daycare center were so nice and so open! i would ABSOLUTELY recommend this school.

So glad the old principal is gone. School is great for students and parents who are exceptional and smart. If not, then the staff and teachers want as little to do with you as possible. Do the teachers a favor and only send your children there if they will score a perfect 600 on their state tests, be quiet in the classroom, and not ask any questions. I'd send my child to another school but I hear that this is the best school in the district. shudder

My child transferred to Los Coyotes after Walter Knott Elementary School unexpectedly closed. At first I was disappointed that my child would have to attend a different school. It is a longer drive for us in the morning. Yet it is small price too pay, because little did we know LOS COYOTES would be a blessing in disguise. What an extreme difference from Walter Knott Elementary(RIP)! At Los Coyotes we have parents who volunteer, participate, and are involved in their children's education. At last a breath of fresh air. Kudos to the awesome office staff Sherry Martinez is outstanding! Finally a Principal that is visible, fun, friendly, positive and energetic. The only thing we miss about Walter Knott is the wonderful teachers, nothing else! In my opinion, Los Coyotes is the ideal model of a "close to perfect school". Keep up the good work!

I love the principal and both of the teachers my kids have. They are very high tech, in terms of teaching on smart boards, as well as communicating via the internet and phone messages...trying to be more green. They don't overdo the fundraisers, and have a heart for doing the right thing.

I think this school is great. My daughter is very happy here. The principal works with the parents and kids. The teachers are really great with kids. I loved the combo class when my daughter was with upper grade. SHe loved the challenge.

Posted June 18, 2009

Los Coyotes is a good school, but the combo class was a real detriment to my child. I knew in September that the combo class was not going to be a good idea and now that the school year is over, it unfortunately became a truth. It seems as if my child wasted a year. As good as the teachers are at this school, they cannot possibly be able to handle this type of teaching. No one can...

This school is great. The Principal is hands down one of the best leaders I have ever come across. We have never been very involved in our childrens school before Los Coyotes, but the PTSO is so welcoming to everyone we couldn't help but want to be involved. The teachers are awesome! My kids love each of their teachers and so do we. The icing on the cake is the great API scores! We are so lucky to be a part of this school.

When selecting a school, you need to consider many factors. By choosing Los Coyotes, all of your needs are met! The principal is an experienced leader whom the children adore. All of the teachers have the children's needs at the forefront of their daily work, and are truly concerned with there welfare, despite the enormous budget cuts to staff and programs. The PTSO is a STRONG organization, and have great parental involvement, and can provide many things for the children and teachers. Overall, I could not be happier with my decision to send my children to this school.

The office staff at Los Coyotes is wonderful!!! Anytime I have a question or concern they are always helpful. It's sad that there is not enough money in the budget for them to have a full staff all day, but they work with what they are given.

I am not too impressed with the office staff. They seem too busy and aren't always professional. The room environment in some of the classroom is also astonishing!

This school is great and the principal is strong and very fair. The staff is exceptional and the volunteers are amazing.

I am very happy with the school now the last principal caused a lot of cliques and had no knowledge of proper discipline. The new parking lot and lunch area look beautiful but someone didn't do their homework before spending way too much money. The lunch area also didn't need to be so extravagant. Other schools in the area have simpler type shelters that cost less and are big enough to fit all the students comfortably. Money could have been saved and spent on playground equipment!!!

Los Coyotes is the BEST SCHOOL OUT OF THE DISTRICT receiving a recent API score of 926. ! We transferred my son to Los Coyotes and he just started kindergarten this year. He absolutely loves his teacher. Many reviews are negative about the principle and I have only talked to her once and so far I think she is a professional leader. I don't really care what her personality or appearance is like so long as she gets her job done. I'm more concerned about the teachers and the QUALITY of the students and parents that my son and family will be around. At the recent Back to School Night, I was blown away at how many parents are involved in the Parent, Teacher, Student Association. Parents are really what makes a school. Visit the school yourself and you wont be dissapointed.

I do not care for the Principal. I feel that she is very unprofessional in her tactics and her appearance. She is very brash and unapologetic. She appears to not know how to deal with parents and is very confrontational. She appears to be disorganized and unaware of how children should behave. I have 2 children currently enrolled at this school and I like thier teachers, but I feel the school has lost it's integrity.

Posted June 23, 2008

The teachers are great as long as your child is a superb student. If your child struggles, this is not the school for him. The staff does not take challenges well. Especially teachers and the principal. This school is only great because of the parents and the students who attend here. The similiar schools ranking speaks for itself.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 17, 2008

I love the amount of parent participation, the teachers are good, but I could not give it top rating due to the outdated playground equipment and the unsavory new principal. There seems to be some sort of machismo thing going on with her; I don't think she knows her students and somehow just doesn't seem to fit in.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
