Michelson has been a great place for my kids. They have thrived in this caring environment. The teachers and staff work very to make it a fun place to work and play. The support for our new community garden, the arts and community activities help keep Michelson and Murphys a great place to grow in!

My daughter has spent K-5 at michelson, this being her last year. I have been 100% amazed with the results of this school and they could never have found a better staff. The staff knows every childs name, who there parents are and they truly care about our children's future and education. when my daughter was in 3rd grade she was reading at a 5th grade level.Michelson has a wonderful PTA.I am so honored to have been a part of the Michelson family and I am beyond proud of our teachers,parents and all other staff that makes it all happen. We really do have the best school in California. Our students are safe and loved by the whole community. Thank you Michelson for helping me raise my child into the strong and intelligent young lady she has become.

My son is in Terry Sepulveda's special ed class. The special ed at Michelson has been excellent. Terry Sepulveda is an incredible teacher. Her many years of expertise are evident - she is dedicated, patient and caring, as are all the experts that have come in to work on their individual areas. I have been very happy with my son's education, the school 'family' and acceptance by other kids. The principal is a real nurturer - very hands on and obviously loves kids.

My daughter has been enrolled in michelson so far k-3. You will never find a better school in all of california. Michelson takes so much pride in there school and the teachers are there 100% for all the children. The staff knows every student my name. Not to mention mr. O, the school principal, he had to of been special made by god just for michelson students.The whole staff at michelson are just the best you could ever ask for and I feel very special to be a part of the michelson family. I will continue to support our school in every way I can, and not to toot our own horn..But yes..Michelson is the best and always will be..

I don't think there is a better place to raise and educate your children. Michelson offers and outstanding quality of education, but more importantly, a confident and nuturing environment where children feel successful and good about themselves. I love michelson and the entire staff!

My kids enjoy attending Michelson, but that is no basis for choosing their scholastic experiences. While the parents club tries to bring in some diverse ethnic exposure, there is little exposure to general cultural arts. Yes the janitor smiles at everyone, but the lunch monitors often yell at the kids to stop screaming and behave durring lunch. Many field trips focus on fun, rather than including educational opportunities outside the student's everyday exposure.This feeling of searching for fun is typified by families vaca-tioning in Disneyland durring school days, and calling it 'independant study'. Then there is the panic right before STAR testing and the children beging the endless cycle of catching up with extra homework. This is a good school failing in some big ways. A house will not stand on a poor foundation.

I've been extremely happy with... not just the teachers but the staff including janitors, lunch helpers, bus drivers etc. My son & daughter are very happy & look forward to going to school.

While my children have benefited from their school, it is because of not just the specific teachers they have been exposed to but our involvement as parents as well. The school board has in the past and still does not required a level of safety that one would expect at a grammer school, so either I or my husband must be around to insure our children's safety. The added benefit of course is our classroom involvement. It gives the teachers the proper support of their authority and keeps us as parents very informed about what our kids are doing. I think that it generates a greater awareness of and commitment to our children by their teachers as well. But it should not be a necessity to the children's safety. I have numerous examples of danger to my and other children which re-enforces my comments. Such a nice school; such a shame.
