My son has gone to this school for 4 years now, he is in the GATE program. We like the school and the front office staff. His teachers have all been good and organized.
Good school. Offers a great amount of parent involvement. Concerened that they are putting students that should not be in GATE Program with the others who are.
The best school in this city, we love it!!!!!! The principal really cares about every child, very warm envirnment. Very high vevel of discipline.
Great staff involvement. Access to staff is simple. Respect at all levels is evident. Academics is very important but the school also hosts lots of fun things for families too.
Pony is a great school. My kids are in the GATE program, but I find that all of the classes are well structured. The kids are very respectful due to the presence of a great principal, Ms. Williams. They have lots of school activities, like plays, family nights, etc. The PTA is VERY active and the parents are as well. I honestly can't believe anyone would rate parent involvement anything less than 5 stars. We chose Pony over Dideon and Matsuyama.
Great teachers and principal, great classified staff and PTA and GREAT kids and parents!!!
My child has attended Pony Express for one year. I am so pleased with how well-rounded her education has been. This is a small school with teachers that care. The administrators fully participate and are fully accessible. Academics are not taught in an agressive way but children learn in ways that are not off putting.
I love Pony Express Elementary School. The Teachers ,Staff , Principal, and The PTA are all wonderful. I highly recommend this school for anyone who values their child's education.
High achieving school with high expectations. Best elements: diversity, leadership by principal and teachers, parent involvement and advisory committees, and GATE program. Pony Express is a safe environment for your child to learn.
My Son has been attending this school since kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade. He has struggled in reading (but does very well in math) I was very impressed on how involved the teacher/principal and other staff members were in on helping him overcome his difficult area. I highly recommend this school to any parent who is interested in higher learning for their child. I wish they had more after school programs such as music/art or sports but thats okay because education comes 1st.
I had to move my son to Pony Express since we moved, and I was afraid of change. Since I walked into the main office of Pony Express the first day though, it really had an effect. It's a cute place, my son's teacher is really sweet and very good at what she does, and everyone is just wonderful. I highly recommend this school. (My son is autistic as well and their special education is wonderful).
Excellent school. The principal has kept on improving this school which continues to out-perform surrounding public and private schools
This is a gret little school with low enrollment and wonderful teachers! They host GATE classes with comprehensive curriculums. The principal is very ono on one with all the kids who attend and knows them all by name. The only shortcoming that I know of, is one that all Sacramento schools suffer from; lack of extracurricular funding. The PTA tries to pick up the slack in that area, by providing decent budgets for each class annually for filed trips and events.
