The staff at Cobblestone is wonderful! It is a small community school that does wonderfully with the resources it has. There is a lot of parental involvement, which is encouraged and somewhat relied on with today's lack of funding for education. The principal is very involved with the students so they don't just see her when they are in trouble. My daughter is only in first grade but I have gotten to know several teachers, and when speaking with other parents I have yet to hear anything negative about any of the staff.
Cobble Stone and Rio Del Oro, both are awful places to work, and awful places to send your children. If you live in this area send your child to Arboga Elementary. Academically they are far more advanced than Plumas Lake, and with better teachers. I'm sending my child back to Arboga just after a few weeks at Plumas Lake Elementary School District.
My son started kindergarten at Cobblestone for the 10-11 school year and we have been very happy with the school & the teachers! He is in a special education program to help with his speech delays and he has made phenomenal progress! The teachers are so committed and dedicated and treat each child as an individual. I originally had looked into private school but due to the costs of daycare & private school since i work full-time, we just couldn't afford it. I am definitely happy that we chose to live in Rocklin for our son to go to a better school! We have been beyond pleased with Cobblestone. Keep up the good work! :)
My son just started this year for kindergarten and so far we are very happy! He loves all of his teachers and they are all so dedicated to the children and their individual needs!
We have three children who attend Cobblestone Elementary.They are in first ,fourth and fifth grade and all started at Cobblestone . Cobblestone is a great learning environment all the way around from the highly skilled teachers who care and a super involved principal who always knows what is going on , awesome parent volunteers including a dedicated PTC equals a wonderful learning experience. What more could you ask for? More money for our schools but that is a nationwide problem . Did I mention a great neighborhood as well.
Great neighborhood, great potential, all lost in the execution. If you are looking for a system that pays lip service without follow thru, this is the school for you. This is definitely a pass.
This was an awesome school. Most of the teachers has several years tenure. The principal was very friendly, and my daughter loved it. A very neighborhood feel!
I have a very different picture of Cobblestone elementary school. While my fifth grade daughter did well and had a lovely teacher, they had to work off of copies from their math book because there were not enough textbooks to go around. If you have a special needs child, RUN, don't walk, to a different school district.
My daughter is in 3rd grade, and also attended 2nd grade at this school. Her experience has been wonderful, she has grown academically and socially. The method of teaching works very well for her, she can be a challange as she is easily distracted, yet she has been kept on course, and if anything is ever going on to show that she is deviating, we are promptly notified. I am very proud of her accomplishments, they are her own and with the direction of Cobblestone, teachers and staff she has a strong desire to push herself. She has many friends and the deversity of students keeps her eye open to the world around us.
Cobblestone is a wonderful school. Our first grade teacher is outstanding, despite only 1 year of experience. The library is tiny and lacking, but the computer lab is nice. No separate gymnasium either, just a multi-purpose room that serves as cafeteria, gym, and stage for Visual Arts performances. Class sizes seem average and parental involvment/participation is appears above average. Many, perhaps too many, fundraising, but I guess a necessary evil today. Overall, very satisfied with Cobblestone.
Cobblestone is a fantastic elementary school. My child started kindergarten there and is now in 5th grade. Every teacher she has had has been extremely dedicated to the education of our children. I believe she is receiving a top notch education and will be successful in her future endeavours. Our principal is great, always available for any questions, comments or concerns. Our PTC is awesome. The committees have raised thousands of dollars which goes directly back into programs for our children. So, parents out there, get involved with your childrens school!
We think Cobblestone school is very well run, with excellent teachers and administrators. We have a fifth grader and a third grader who both started their education at Cobblestone. We have been very happy with all of the teachers! The school is well run. The PTA is very involved and does a number of positive things for the school. Overall, an excellent school.
I completely disagree with the first and only review that I have read about Cobblestone Elementary School. Never have I seen such dedicated, caring, and professional teachers who consistently go beyond. The principal, Ms. Goddard, bring positive and accessible leadership. The Cobblestone PTC is second to none. . . truly . . . . The president, Laurie J., has done an absolutely marvelous job and puts in so many hours in a positive and very open manner . . . She is kind and hardworking. Cobblestone is an awesome school. All who are fortunate to be touched by this community-based school . . . are lucky and blessed!
Cobblestone Elementary is probably fairly typical of most California schools -- in a wealthy area, but where none of the constituents want to pay enough in taxes to provide quality education for their children. We had a special needs child in kindergarten (and fought the district all year to try and get the minimum of good services) and had a fifth grader. The fifth grader's teacher was good, and really a sweet lady, but our daughter was provided with low quality textbooks, or none at all. (no math book -- copies were made of pages within the math book at the beginning of the year -- what is up with that?) The band teacher was wonderful, but he had absolutely no support from the parents. If you have low-quality support from parents you will receive a low-quality education. And if you have a special needs child, do what we did, and leave California entirely! You will never receive a good education in that state.
