This is a great school. The teachers and staff really care about the students. And I am sad that my daughter has to change school.
Fitzgerald is an example of a solid foundation to an elementary school, both of my young daughters ages 10 & 7 attend and I feel very lucky to have both attending Fitzgerald, they are both on their way to academic success and it all started at Fitzgerald!!
I think Fitzgerald is a great school. Like every school it has certain issues but overall I think most everyone has the kids best interest at heart and is there to teach them. My son is in 2nd grade red track. His teacher Mrs. Israel is a great teacher! My daughter attended 1st-5th and had alot of great experiences and made lots of friends and good memories.
I love this school, the principal, staff and teachers are all wonderful. I haven't had a negative experience to date. Parents are really involved at Fitzgerald.
I love this school they have really high expectations of the scores and they really motivate the kids in all aspects of learning!
This is one of the best schools in Rialto. The Principal, the Administrative staff, awesome teachers, and the custodial staff give 100% effort. Super job to the whole school and school district for the recent school wide evacuation due to a nearby large field fire. The evacuation was handled professionally, safely, and was a well coodinated event. As a parent and a substitute teacher at this school, I knew my child was 100% safe and well taken care of. If anyone is looking for a superb school to put their child in, Fitzgerald is the one. They have the best PTA and they run and awesome GATE program. Thank you Fitzgerald Elementary you are the best!

My son went to Fitzgerald for grades 1-5. All his teachers were excellent with the exception of [one]. Mrs. Ianuzzo, great teacher, really cared about her students, I was fortunate to have her 'loop over' my sons class having her for two yrs. (2&3)next Ms. Ducker, different teaching style but again encouraged her students to do what she knew they were capable of and more., Mr. Knowles, kids enjoyed his teaching style, causing them to learn while enjoying it. Not too keen on the principal. A. Salcido
This school is year round which I personally am not fond of, however the teachers for the most part are very involved and dedicated. The pricipal is hands on and always available for any concerns you might have. good school.
I was not impressed with the school teaching programs, I think they can work harder in improving there standards for reading...
I am impressed with the quality education my child received. The teachers identified his potential and encouraged him to work up to it.He accomplished more than even he thought possible about himself. He was involved in band and in the GATE program. He was encouraged to participate in the science fair and talent show. The PTA is very involved with providing many extras for the students. Parent involvement is encouraged and recognized. It is a great school and I would highly recommend it to any parent looking for a public school for their child.
It's a great school. The teachers are top notch and the principal is amazing. He knows all the kids and treats them with dignity and respect. No job is 'beneath' him. I've seen him manning the crosswalk in the pouring rain alone and taking out the trash.
