My experience at Hendrick Ranch Elementary School has been nothing but positive and that is due to the Principal, Mr. Gordon. His response to any issues or problems that have arisen is immediate. Mr. Gordon is very proactive and as a parent I appreciate this type of response. Mr. Gordon interacts with the students in a positive manner and he knows most by name, not because they misbehave but because he cares enough to engage them in simple conversation. Mr. Gordon is very concerned w/the academic growth and progress of all of the students and he, along with several teachers offer after school tutoring programs. Mr. Gordon maintains an open door policy in regards to communicating w/the parents. I have called the school on occasion w/a question or concern and either been put through to his phone line or a message was taken and he returned my call as soon as he was available.

This is the 3rd year my child has attended this school. I'm not impressed with this school. The principal is very unresponsive to school problems, like bullying, and school traffic in the parking lot. On Oct. 30, 2010, there is going to be a mass traffic issue when Kitchening opens up to allow traffic from Alessandro Blvd. This school was not designed to be on a street with mass traffic. The school is making no efforts to improve student drop off and pickups. I've spoken to the principal several times since school started in August, but he's done nothing. I fear the safety of all students having to walk to and from this school. I'm in the works to change my child out of this school. I don't recommend this school since I know there are better schools out there.

My son has attended this school as a GATE student. I don't see how everyone thinks this is such a great school! The principal is a great person but he can only respond to each problem one at a time. The staff doesn't control the kids, teachers give unreasonable goals to the children. I am so glad they end at the 5th grade!

Great 3rd grade Teachers; Weir and Dagonhart.... Their level of excellance put my third grader on a fifth grade level. My child was in Mr. Weir's class, he gives alot of work each week but its of such high quality, there will be no regrets. Both Wier and Dagonhart worked very closely together which allowed my child to have two great teachers. My child was on a transfer to Hendrick and we don't know if he is going to be accepted back because so many kids are on the waiting list.

I think they should be a little nicer. I just said 'hi' to somebody and I got in trouble. Also, a bit more cleaning for the school should be better. After I go on the swings my hands smell 'weird.' Some smell I can't describe. I don't like it anyway.

I am very pleased with this school. Whenever I have had any concerns or problems the principal and assistant principal have been more then willing to listen. The atmosphere has changed a lot from the way it used to be. A change for the better. Thanks!

I have two children in two different kindergarten classes at this school and I am very satisfied with all aspects of this school. Both the teachers that my children have are wonderful and attentative to all the children and their needs. The regular ed kindergarten class has 30 students and is very large but I help out as much as possible and have seen first hand that these teachers do not let the huge class size intimidate them , Mrs. Burschneider and Mrs Mayberry are both extremly experienced and offer one on one help daily to each student. These teachers are alway willing to talk or help with anything when needed. Mrs. Hanes-Dart is an exceptional special ed teacher and has even helped me with my other child who was apprehensdive aobut going to school and separating form me. The special ed program here, in my opinion seems to be the best in this district. The IA's in the special ed class are also wonderful with the children. The entire office staff is also very friendly and make you feel welcome.

I am a teacher myself and know exactly what to look for as far as teacher quality goes and as a parent. I really liked this school especially for it's teacher/parent involvement. My son needed extra help as he was much younger than most in his class and his needs were always met and that helped his confidence and successful completion of grades K-2nd. I was given constant updates on his progress and the programs the school uses are outstanding! My son found the 'Accelerated Reading' program to be competitive and fun.He loved his teachers Mrs. Berschneider, Mrs. Rank and Mrs. Lucky. I also found them to be very efficient and thorough in helping the students to succeed!Unfortunatly, we moved. Thank-you Hendrick Ranch.

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.
