Just moved to this area. I heard so many great things about this school, looking forward to having my children attend here.
My daughter is finishing her 5th grade year here after starting in 3rd. I cannot say enough good things about this school and the staff. They have done admirably well with the budget cuts they've had to deal with. I have so much admiration for the teachers, ESPECIALLY Mr. Fanning, Mr. Glendinning and Mrs. Becker. Mrs. Becker taught my daughter to love math and to understand it, and THAT is one great feat with my daughter!
My two children currently attend this school (3rd and 5th grade) and the teachers have all been wonderful.They have been very communicative and seem geniuinely interested in doing all that they can to make sure the student succeed. I have also been highly impressed with parent involvement and support. The schools in Murrieta (and Tovashal in particular) are one of the reasons that we chose to move up to the Inland Empire.
Our children attended Tovashal for 2 years (Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grades) and we will sadly be moving to another area. Our experience with the teachers have excelled our expectations and they have set the bar quite high for us as parents! The responsiveness to emails, inquiries, activities, etc. is so refreshing and my husband and I are hoping to have the same fortune for our children at their new school.
Tovashal is an extremely friendly campus. I have been exceptionally pleased with my children's teachers thus far. They are compassionate, caring and concerned. They have imparted their love for learning to their students and it shows. I couldn't be happier with another campus than I am with Tovashal.
This is my childs second year at this school and great teachers who care about the kids and great office staff
This will be my children second school year at this school, and so far I have no complaints. The class sizes are smaller than expected and the staff really cares about the well being and education of the students...We are very happy to have our children attending this school
We love this school. Mrs. Olsen and Mr. Banks are the BEST principal and vice principal. They are completely involved!! I am very happy to have my children at such a great school.
Tovashal Elementary fosters a strong and supportive learning environment for the students who attend. The principal is quite involved in the school as well as the community and is readily available to address any concerns posed by parents. My daughter views school as a positive experience and is excited to share her learning experiences each day.
My daughter attends first grade at Tovashal. So far, she has learned a great deal and her classroom environment is good. The campus is clean, well-tended and pleasant. Our experiences with the administration have been good. However, there is a lot of growth in our area, and our daughter was just moved to another classroom as teachers are being shuffled to accommodate new students. I realize the district has no choice; however, we had counted on a stable school experience for our child and are disappointed about all of the changes.
Excellent school. Two of my sons go to school here. They are in the fifth grade. The teachers are great. The test scores are high. All of the schools in this district are great. Its why we moved here.
This school with teachers like Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Patton is above and beyond the curve. Even though we wont be returning to this school we will always have you two keeping the bar high for other teachers that come into our childrens lives!!!
This school is dedicated to excellence in many categories. The emphasis is on the excitement of learning and the kids experience many of the small-school field trips and cross-curriculum packages, such as plays, enactments of historical events, and talent shows. The kids seem to have an energy and self esteem level that you don't usually see in public schools. Leadership is outstanding. The principal knows her teachers, and is honest about their strengths and weaknesses.
My son has loved the last 5 years that he has spent at Tovashal. Unfortunately, this will be his last year there. The students, parents, and staff are wonderful. We had a problem last year, and when I spoke with the principal, she remedied the problem the next day, and all was well for my son again. We are sure going to miss Tovashal when he moves on to middle school next year.
