My daughter went to this school in kindergarten and we both loved it. We were very fortunate to be assigned to the best kindergarten teacher there... Mrs. Macias. I was very welcomed in volunteering in my daughters class as much as I wanted (which I did). I was also thanked multiple times for my volunteering, which was much appreciated. The principal is stern, but in a good way. Her main focus is education, as well as overall health and well-being. She expects nothing less than the best from all her kids and is an overall great leader to the school. If there was more parent involvement, this school could easily be a 10.

I'm a parent and a teacher at Ritchen and I Love Our School! Everyone is working very hard to meet the needs of all students. I hope all parents feel comfortable contacting teachers and or our principal if they have any questions, comments, concerns--and yes, complaints. There are some things that I would like to see happen at our school, but our budget and the OSD make some things impossible. Having shared that, I also want to say, 'Let's not focus on the negative and whine about what we can't do. Let's all work together to continue to have the best school in Oxnard.'

Great teachers, good support staff (i.e. psychologists, aides, speech and RSP teachers), and a principal with high expectations. General look of the school is a little old and dirty...but it's public education and it's about the best a public school of it's age is going to get. If my children have to go anywhere...I am glad they are there...dirty school and all.

I am very pleased with Emilie Ritchen! I have two boys in 1st & 2nd grade. Not only are the teachers they've had awesome, but the customer service of the office staff is incredible as well! The parent involvement has been quite noticeable in every grade level, there are always the parent regulars and it's great to see. I, personally, try to make it to every fieldtrip and I find that usually there are at least 4-7 other parents that volunteer to go! I also find that every year Ritchen is one of the top 3 schools in the area.

I am very pleased with the education my children have recieved at Emily Ritchen since they were transfered. The teachers are very positive to be around and they are truely care about the child's progress. I love seeing classroom work posted on the outside walls.The safety procedures regarding picking up and dropping off of children has exceeded my expectations. Ritchen is truely a neighborhood school.

This public school is a shining star. My experience (with two children in the school) has been entirely positive. My children have had exceptional teachers who sincerely care about their development as scholars and as people. There is also a high degree of parental involvement, which allows this school to provide more educational extras, such as music and reading programs which benefit all students.

My children have gone or are going through all grade levels. They are all A's and GATE students. I found that their teachers were interactive and very willing to have parent involvement. Both my husband and I work full time jobs, serve on other community committes, but still find the time to get involved in this school.
