As parents, it is our responsibility to send our children to get the best education schools have to offer. Well our son attended Pre-K & Kinder there & he is now an honor student at St. Mary's School. Our daughter just finished Kinder there this year. Now my nephew just started summer school Pre-K this month. We highly recommend Puente to all parents that agree that the first years our kids lives are thee most important ones. At Puente they set a standard of rules, place study habits and organize them to succeed in future years. I personally would like to thank Mrs. Juarez, Mrs. Pinedo, Mr. Yui, Mrs. Lamb, Mrs. Ortiz and all the staff there for giving our children the best education Puente has to offer. The Faz Family

I am a kindergarten teacher at PUENTE Charter School. Our kindergarten program meets or exceeds California state standards. It is rewarding to read the positive reviews on this website! I am happy that so many parents are pleased with their children's success. The good habits and solid learning foundation that our students acquire at PUENTE will help them with their future educational endeavors. Mrs. Juarez Teacher PUENTE Charter School

My son attens the program and I am happy to say that in the six months that he has been there he has learned how to use a computer, how to read, write, tell time, recognize the value of money and most of all he has learn people skills. He has also participated in a play and likes to teach what he learns daily to his younger sister.

This is an excellent school with a great academic program. The teachers are great. Parent involvement is excellent and highly encouraged. I highly recommend this school, the only disappointment is that it only goes to kindergarten

My son's experience at Puente so far has been very positive. He entered the school with good reading skills and now is an excellent reader. The teachers are great and attentive to my son's needs. I would definitely recommend this school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
