My child's has come a long way from when he started the school year as a result of the dedication brought on by the teachers who consistently help him grow and become independent. In my opinion Pre-school is the foundation of a child educaton and I am absolutely confident that the students in this school are far exceeding expectations.

The regular school program is terrific, and the principal is wonderful, but the preschool program is horrible!

My son has attended this school from 2nd grade and I have nothing bad to say about it. The teachers and principal are all very caring and dedicated. My only regret is that I will be moving at the end of the summer and wont be able to enroll my daughter in this wonderful school. I would highly recommend this school!

I switched my children to Stuart Mesa from Santa Margarita, and we are all happy and satisfied with the quality of instruction and the dedicated teachers who always go the extra mile to motivate and educate their students.

My daughter has gone to Stuart Mesa since Kindergarten and she will be promoted to the sixth grade this year. My son is in the third grade and my younger daughter will start school next year. We love the teachers, staff and all the school has to offer. I could not ask for more.

My daughter has attended the 2006/2007 school year. She is in grade K and I couldn't be happier with everything she has learned. She can read, add, subtract, beginning multiplication, and so many other things. I never expected this much progress in one year. Excellent school and teachers.

My child is in 5th grade this year and has been at the school since first grade which is rare living on a military base. Up to 3rd grade the school really focused on GATE programs and academic achievement. This year has shown a marked decline in the focus of the school. I would hope it is not due to the change in principle. Mr. McAteer was a true leader in education. Still a great school compared to those located off base...more of a private school feel thanks to the strong military community. More parents should push their children to follow the uniform dress code. For a school on a military base...it is not very 'uniform'...

Great school located on Camp Pendleton supported by the Oceanside Unified School District. Extra Federal funding provides good safe education for the children in this K-5 school. A School age care program is located with the school to support before and after normal school hour care.

I do not feel that all teachers treat all students fairly. The staff seems to degrade military civilian spouses. At least that was my experience when our daughter first transfered to this school last year. Nor our we please with the result when we requested that our daughter recieve tutoring and maybe see the school pyschologist. We wonder if they treat the families according to the military sponsor's rank?We can say that the principal is a great leader.

Both of my kids attended Stuart Mesa when we lived on base. When we moved to our new district,which is a top performing district, we were told that our kids would be way behind because they were in a 'lower standard ' district. Well...needless to say that was not the case and I would have picked Stuart Mesa over this new school hands down! You cant find better teachers anywhere!

Good School. On a MC Base so it's just for military kids. Principal is very involved with the kids and they love him.

I am grateful for Stuart Mesa Elementary. Both of my children attended. My oldest went for 5 years and youngest for 2. The teachers are supportive and use positive reinforcement with the kids and are very encouraging. The children are very well behaved. To me this is more like a private school rather than public. We recently moved to Texas and my children are in a public school that is supposed to be one of the best and it is a nightmare compared to Stuart Mesa. My children were making pretty average grades Bs and Cs in Stuart mesa and are making all As here. Stuart Mesa taught my children well and they are now a grade or two above this Texas school. I can't stress enough how good this school is and the principal and teachers are to thank.

My children relly enjoy going to school every morning. It's easier to get them ready for school because they are eager to go. The teachers and the principal are very involved with the children and the parents.

Stuart Mesa was one of the best schools my kids have gone to. I was worried when we transfered to California that my children would have problems adapting to a new environment, new teachers, a new school etc. since they started in the middle of the school year, but the teachers and staff at Stuart Mesa were great! The criculum was awesome. What I loved most though, was the class size. There were only around 20 kids to each class, so each student was recognized by the teacher if they had a problem etc.

My children both attended the first year Stuart Mesa opened. They both have wonderful memories. They enjoyed student council and burying the time capsule. My son was a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony. We have nothing but great things to say about this school. The teachers and staff were terrific. Dr. Kolb was very friendly and spent time talking with the students. Stuart Mesa was a great stepping stone for my children. My kids are now 11 and 15, and both are A students.

This is the 2nd year my daughter will have attended Stuart Mesa School and I am very pleased. My daugther absoultely loves going to school and I believe it is because the staff embraces her every day. Not only with knowlegde, but with love. I couldn't have asked for a better school for her to attend. I would like to praise the principal, teachers and staff for providing a safe and happy environment for our children.
