My son and daughter started Kindergarten here (now 3rd & 4th grade) & they loves there teachers & school. The teachers, staff & principle are genuinely caring & sincere. Since starting kindergarten here, They have Learned so much & having a wonderful time at school. They love doing there homework & always look forward to going each week. Teachers are very dedicated, they go above & beyond to ensure that every child is learning & having a great time at school with a positive environment up to date teaching techniques. The teachers & staff take every precaution to keep students safe during & after school. This is an outstanding school! Teacher student ratio is 16 to 1 with the rest of north county being much higher!! Oceanside's best kept secret, I Marine Corp Dad, approves of this school!! Submitted by a parent
I attended this school when I was young. perhaps twenty years ago and I'll agree it wasn't the best, but when schools are supported by the tax revenues in the surrounding areas what else do you expect. The person above me however is clearly misinformed as to her children being the only three english speakers in the entire school. I spoke english perfectly when I was a student there; as a majority of my classmates did. As for her son not having to sit in his wet pants all day, clearly if he isn't intelligent enough to tell someone or leave for the nurses offive to call home with wet pants then perhaps he belongs in a different program. Clearly the child of a scholar who spells unacceptable, exceptable and uses used at the wrong point instead of saying ''not allowed to used the restroom''. Maybe the school wasn't the problem at all with your children. More than likely itis the parenting.
This school was unexceptable! My 3 kids went to here for a few months and for the open house play that the kindergarten class put on they sang their abc's and the rest of the assembly was done in spanish! That is ALL they learned. There were THREE children in this school who could speak english and all three of them were mine! Not to mention that almost every day my 8yr old daughter was told she was going to be jumped after school and my 6 yr old son was not allowed to used the restroom and was forced to sit in his wet pants all day long while both of their teachers ignored them! The staff at this school is nothing short of abusive! I am surprised this school has nto been shut down for neglecting their students! If you care about your children at all please keep them FAR away from this "school"!!
