It is too soon to give 5 stars as we are only starting kindergarten this year but so far so good. We are transfers from the local automatic school which had very poor ratings and I LOVE the decision to come here when we couldn't get into the school we originally wanted (that my other children attended). My child is on the hyper and inattentive side but he only gets appropriate attention and is working it out. You only get what you put into your experiences and it's true with this school as well. Fantastic teachers what we've seen so far. I am loving the staff (I see no "laziness" whatsoever) and we're excited to see how the rest of our years here shape my child's learning and experiences! Haven't met the principle much yet so I can't comment on that yet. Seems very nice though.

I was wondering if this school is hard to get in to if you do not live in the school boundaries? Based on positive reviews, test scores, and location, we are planning to send our daughter here next year but I would like to know if there are a lot of kids on the waiting list. Does anybody know? Thank you.

This school is amazing. My two children go here now, and as soon as my preschooler is old enough, she will also join the ranks at Mariemont. We have been THRILLED with this school. The parent involvement is through the roof. The teachers are wonderful, and the homey environment at this school makes me feel so good about leaving my children there during the day. We do not live in the school's boundaries, but have been nothing but welcomed and loved at this school! I can't imagine a better place to go to elementary school!!!!!!

Mariemont is an amazing community of parents, teachers and kids! Not only are the API scores consistently very high, but there are so many "extras" offered here that are not offered at other schools - Choir with twice yearly shows, yearly talent show, Art Extravaganza, many outreach programs to teach the kids the importance of giving back to our community, Grandparent picnic, programs that encourage families to walk and bike to school, many amazing field trips, beginning and advanced band, and the list goes on! Wonderful, nurturing environment, very lucky to call this public school home.

My son attended here and they said he was hard of hearing and needed speech help. It turns out he had a vision problem. I was basically told he wasn't advanced because we didn't afford preschool. He isn't rich and all the way the right race to fit in with the other kids at the school. He was a transfer in because I worked on Fairoaks Blvd and wanted to be close by but his home school was another elementary in the district. The school principal and the room mother were a clique a total high school drama clique. I was chastised by public email to a group of mother's over a charity project but I had to lay it back down and defend myself against the claims. Rude and unprofessional this school lacks tact. The only thing good about this school was one of the Kindergarten teachers and his Guinea Pig Oreo. My son had to re-take Kindergarten over the lack of attention to his actual medical diagnosis of being vision impaired not hearing impaired. We moved out of state and would never in our lives let our son attend Mariemont or a San Juan school even if we lived in the district itself we'd consider a public charter or home school. If your kids are not rich and 100% white prepare for war!

A "Public School" is only as good as the involvement of the public. So if you refer to the staff as "Lazy" are you really reflecting on your own lack of involvement? I am the Mother of 3 and un-like every parent here, I was a STUDENT at Mariemont. Parents need to stand with their teachers not against them!!!

Are you kidding me these reviews must be from the lazy staff. If you are not in the school boundaries they do everything they can to get your child out of the school. The teachers are lazy if they have to spend extra time they sure let you know what a inconvenience it is for them. What a joke this school doesn't even have a librarian. The principal is easy to pas the buck and is lazy and rude. If this rating had a zero it would suit this school. Get some teachers that care and a new principal that wasn't a patsy and this school is a four star.

Mariemont has been a wonderful school for both of my children. Our family transferred here from another school in the San Juan School District and the difference in the quality of the teachers and the learning environment is dramatic. The PTA does a great job at making up for the lack of funds that every school in the San Juan school district is experiencing.

I am a little surprised by the high rating listed for this school considering my son, entering the 2nd grade for the 2011-2012 school year, will not have music class, no librarian, no reading teacher, and only 50 minutes per week available for computer learning.

My son is in Kindergarden at Mariemont and we are very pleased. This is our first experience with a public school and we are impressed. Although its a public school, it has a private school feel because of the parental involvement, quality of teachers and the high standards the school sets. The only drawback is that it is not as ethnically diverse as I would like. But otherwise, its a great school

Mariemont has been a wonderful school for our children. The teachers are excellent, the coursework is demanding and the class sizes are small. But the best part is that the vast majority of children come from conscientious and caring families who want to contribute to the school and help their children succeed. The afterschool GATE programs (lego, art, etc.) are wonderful, too. We love the school.

This school has high academic standards and good extracurricular programs, such as band. However, it is not a good place for children who are outside the mainstream in any manner. The parents and children are not very accepting or welcoming to children with disabilities.

The teachers, parents, and, of course, the students make Mariemont an outstanding experience. Entering school can be a little unnerving for students and parents alike. Kindergarden at Mariemont sets the tone for the entire elementry school adventure. Students are nurtured and listened to in a small class setting. All are confident at graduation to first grade. From there, a variety of wery interested (and interesting) teachers keep students busy achieveing at an impressive rate. There is always a great deal of parental involvement, and we parents are always welcomed by students and staff. Best points are Kindergarden, 4-6 grade teachers, and an awesome music (band) instructor - one of the best in the state. If you can, experience Mariemont!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
