This school has a new Principal. Mrs. Van, Mrs. Kertz, Mrs. Perlstein, Mrs. Huynh are really great teachers. Hope this new principal checks what is sent out to parents, I have seen many errors in the publications.

The best 2nd grade teacher was transferred out because of staffing issues shortly after school started Sept 2010. She was the best 2nd grade teacher with a master's degree in education even; big loss. The replacement is a 27-year veteran of the system who is used to teaching higher grade levels, not the same as a lower-grade elementary teacher,however. The school is clean, principal is hands-on and very involved, school is organized. Riverside county standards are high, but meeting the standards is left to the discretion of individual schools where most of the variation in implementation occurs.

All I can say is that this is a wonderful school. There are a ton of extra events, such as movie nights, that help the community bond. Awesome staff and lovely campus.

The principal is there to protect the teacher, not your child!
