I have one child at this school and one that just left for middle school. Wile I feel that some teachers are "tired of being teachers" others are excited about their job! Some, maybe 3, I feel have lost that excitement of teaching. Parents need to be engaged as to what is going on in the class, you can't just rely on the teacher, you must be involved as with any school. Could use a lot more parent envolvement, rather than those who sit on the side and complain that there is not enough going on at the school. Calif has cut so much out we the parents have to step up and fill in the gaps. The principle does a great job at handeling situations that arise. Overall a nice school with high standards both in and outside of the classroom. Would like to see some young, fresh teachers in the school though.

My son has completed two semesters of kindergaerten at Loma Rica School. I am very dissapointed in the lack of communication between the school and parents of the students who attend. While my son has become "proficient" in reading and math, I feel there is no outlet for individuality, creativity, imagination, or self expression. The children are understimualted, and I upset that there is no sense of community in my neighborhood school. My son will not be returning next fall.
