Rancho Cordova Elementary School 2

My granddaughter will not attend R.C. Elementary next year. Lockdowns with no notification to parents, bullying reported and nothing done, a teacher who has no control over her classroom and says she should have retired the year before are just a few reasons to transfer a child out of this school. My granddaughter has gone from a 5 yr old who loved school and is a potential best friend to everyone to become a little girl that complains of headaches and stomach aches at the thought of attending school. Both of my daughters attended this school and I feel sad that it is no longer the school it once was.

Unsatisfactory Principal! Mr. Frankel was a really bad choice for being the Principal there! As others are saying, around my time, when Principal Ms. Kutsara (if that is how you spell her name) was a really great principal. These days kids are getting out of hand and making wrong decisions. The schools quality went down ever since Mr. Frankel started working there. He doesn't encourage freedom to express yourself and always presses on about safety rules that no one listens to. He should, the staff should, and the teachers should atleast try working alot harder to let childeren understand their position towards elders and their education even if they have to discourage them. Discipline and minor punishment need to be inforced to create a better school. Teachers have also degraded! Staff members are not being chosen wisely. Food there needs to be delicious yet healthy. They need to understand that. Changing the uniform styles will atleast give students a sence of dignity. The principal is taking away their pride, freedom, fun, and important education!!! Staff and Principal MUST be changed and chosen wisely!!!!! -I'm a student from the past (I graduated and am now in Highschool)

Wonderful Principal! The teachers have been very helpful and worked with my child on an individual basis. My children have attended since 2007

This school is lacking in leadership. My child attended this school in the 90's and was well educated. Now another family members child attends here. Boy has the quality gone down. They are allowing a few "bullies" to rule the playgrounds, classrooms and to torment fellow students and teachers. Gang influences are obvious and uncontrolled. Sad that such a good school has been allowed to decline to this level. There are some great teachers at this school, to bad their hands are tied by weak leadership.

This school has some major issues with leadership, starting with the principal Mr. Frankle. He is more interested with behavior and attitude instead of academics, which is why this school does not partake in having an Honor Roll affecting 2 of my kids. So far this year, we have had issues with teachers, the principle, and yard supervisors, who spend more time on the phone instead of watching children.

The teachers are very hard working and always willing to give whatever is needed to ensure student success. The principal David Frankel is student centered and expects all students to learn and thrive.

Rancho cordova elementary is a strong and successful school mainly because of our wonderful principal! She is amazing. She is very supportive of the teachers and creates an excellent environment for our children. Our staff is like a big family we all just work happily together. The custodian, francis, is a blessing to us all. The grounds are beautiful and well kept at all times. It is such a pleasure to have the perfect school!

Rancho Cordova Elementary is a fantastic school, staffed by many dedicated teachers & support personnel and led by a superb principal. Our kids speak about 25 different languages and dialects in addittion to English, so teachers are constantly challenged in incredible ways. I am constantly impressed by the level of expertise, talent, devotion and dedication our staff demonstrates, and I am proud to be part of this incredible school, where the needs of kids always come first!
