Map of Santa Fe Elementary School address.

My son attended Santa Fe from 3rd thru 6th (he is now in 8th grade) and my daughter has attended since kindergarten, when the school 1st opened. Both my kids love this school, I have nothing but good things to say about the teachers and all staff. The principal (Mr. Valdez) is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, always motivating his students to do their best, and read, read, read. I think he's one of the main reasons this school's students scored the highest of all the city's elementary schools in state testing, despite being new and being located in what some feel is a "poor" part of town.

I have two children who attend this school, and as a concerned parent I feel this is the best school I could send them to. The classes are great along with the staff and the school is a nice looking and is well maintained. I have only good and positive things to say about the school and the experience.

My son is a kindergarden student at Santa Fe, and he loves it. I am so glad I enrolled him in this school. The school is great, the administration and teachers are the best, and they have their students success at heart.
