Victoria Elementary historically has been one of the best elementary schools in the region, and judging by API schools recently has risen to the challenge of sustaining a high quality educational institution. The principal for the past few years, Ms. Nelson, was recently reassigned to another school. Ms. Nelson was able to juggle the demands of parents and staff. Victoria Elementary is in one of the best neighborhoods in the Inland Empire, and parents tend to be more involved than in some other neighborhoods. The new principal is an unknown. This year, parents simply dropping children off at school and seeing them to their classrooms are relentlessly hassled by a strange, apparently underprivileged staff member who is highly aggressive and confrontational. Parents are told they cannot stand in ordinary locations nearby classroooms when dropping off their kids. This is not professional staff acting inappropriately, but a type of parent playground guard, who has an authority buzz towards other parents. The principal has been unresponsive so far. Because parents tend to be highly involved at Victoria, this situation will lead to fireworks sooner rather than later.

I chose Victoria Elementary for my kids and it was the best decision I could have made. The teachers and staff all work together beautifully to create a comfortable learning environment for the students. I have been at Victoria for 7 years and would never leave. Ms. Nelson, the principal, is very visible on campus and always available to meet with parents. Victoria also has the greatest PTA and they really work hard to keep the doors open for volunteerism and motivating you to become involved in your child's education. This year they have also begun enriching after-school programs to help fill voids left by budget cutbacks. Students can participate in a variety of stimulating programs to help nurture the learning environment and create a sense of pride and attachment to their school. It truly is a wonderful school

I have been a parent with Victoria Elementary for the past 3 years and I am very pleased with the academics, parent envolment as well as the safety of our children. Mrs. Nelson has been an asset to this school. She is more dedicated to our children than any one Principal I have ever known.

I really love VES. We have been with the school for 6 years. Only 1 teacher was a little disappointing. I wish they had after school activites or sports available at the school since there are no parks in the immediate area that offer extracurricular options. YMCA care is way too expensive. Working FT doesn't allow me to provide transportation to other areas.

I think Ms. Nelson is a horrible principal. She is out of touch with reality. I wish they would transfer her.

Victoria is an outstanding school! Our new principal, Ms. Lari Nelson is wonderful. The school is now very welcoming and friendly. All decisions are based on what's best for our kids.
