This school has gone down since my oldest daughter went there, I can't believe the conduct of some of the teachers at this school, This school was once one that cared for the students and watch for their safety. What has happen to this school?
As a parent who comes from a school that was lacking to say the least I love this school. My daughter has an awesome teacher and the principal and vice seem very involved and caring. They stand outside before and after school, which is nice so that parents can easily approach them if we have a need. Overall this is a wonderful school.
loved this school until this year. New principal, who is making a lot of uneccesary changes that have a lot of parents upset. Quality of teachers and education seems to be declining. Just got a letter stating this school is in the IP (improvment program) according to the state. For the first time in 3 years since my children have been attending Ocotillo, I am very disappointed.
My child started Ocotillo in Kindergarten and now she is moving on to the second grade. All her teachers have been very nice. Ocotillo gives lots of reading assigments which has helped her become a very good reader. I really like that the school introduces the kids to classwork that other local schools do not. The different writing assignments and reading. It is an exceptional school especially for it being public.
Ocotillo has an amazing staff of teachers, administrators, and parents!!
Ocotillo Elementary is a safe a naturing environment for children. I has a great leadership and a wonderful group of committed teachers.
Every teacher is different and every kid has different learning needs. But I have had 3 kids at Ocotillo (two are now at Juniper) and am very proud to say they are all A-B students. Yes my husband and I are very active in their school work but I owe alot to these teachers. Just think they have 30+ kids to teach and I have helped in the classes and it is hard work to keep them all on task. I give this school all 5 stars thanks to this school I have kids that love to learn, so thank you Ocotillo!!
Ocotillo is the best public elementary school in town! The principal is top-notch and the teachers outstanding. All three of our youngest children have attended or are attending this great elementary school.
Ocotillo staff, students and parents are the best. We have the most experienced, caring teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure every student is learning every day.
This is not a good school, let's be honest. The STAR test shows 50% of students score at basic or below basic level. My son goes to school and everyday he comes home he tells me what they were working on that day, then I roll up my sleeves and teach him. They can't teach him anything. His scores are good but I take credit for that. The school is the best in Palmdale School District but PSD is already at the edge of a cliff. Don't expect miracles here. The bottom line is the only thing they care about.
I have three kids that have gone to Ocotillo ( one still attends) and I think this school is wonderful if you take advantgage of what they have to offer your kids. Anytime I had a problem they listened and fixed it. I give this school 5 stars. My sons are in the AVID program now at Juniper thanks to Ocotillo and all have a 3.5 GPA and above! THANKS!!!
i have my child in ocotillo and is a exelent school, i move to an other city and i hope to find the same quality of staff like here .thank you ms May Wyne . kinder mom, Maria luz seimandi...
I have my child in Ocotillo and the Principal and the teachers are excellent. Their curriculm is outstanding. If you are a parent that wants to find the best school in the Palmdale School District-Ocotillo is the School. They bring out the best in their students.

Nice campus. Quality Teachers. Good special ed staff. Good discipline. High parent involvement. School-Home communication could be better.
Ocotillo Elementary School is one of the finest elementary school in the Antelope Valley. There is a clear committment by teachers and staff to have these elementary students succeed and thrive in upper learning. There is a variety of programs available for students that need extra tuitoring in subjects they might be a risk at failing. The level of dedication felt at this school by administrators, staff, and parents is refreshing. I am a mother of 3 boys and all my children have attended the exceptional school.
I think this is a wonderful school. all 3 of my boys have attended this school. The taschers are caring and the principle is very helpful. I highly recommend.
