Top 3 Things You Should Know About This School 1. Kids are being thrown to the wolves My student comes home not knowing how to do his homework. I don't think it is the child's fault. There is only one teacher for 30 students and hardly any 1-to-1 interaction. I once went through my student's schoolwork to discover he did not know how to count coins! 2. Teachers are terrible communicators At almost every open house, teachers make an empty promise to be available to parents and keep them up to date. Yet, they always fail to update the homework schedule or email me back. After a busy day, I do not want to play guessing games with my student! Teachers at this school resort to making their own website and later abandoning it. Stop playing web designer! Use Dropbox, Wordpress, Google Products, etc. to post a homework schedule and copies online. Post in advance! 3. Parents have to pick up the slack I had to teach my third grader how to write a paragraph, where to place commas, and what an outlier is. I had to buy a book and teach him reading comprehension skills, so that he can score better on standardized tests. Overall, I am a better teacher than the one he learns from at this school.

My daughter is in her second year at Ericson and for the most part it has met her needs. The only issue I have had is in communication between administrators and parents. She was transferred into a new class early in the year with zero notice. I picked her up and she was upset that she would be leaving her teacher. It would have been nice to have a bit of notice to prepare her for the change...six year olds do not like surprises!

My son goes to ericson and it has been great experience so far .Some of the teachers are amazing and they put so much efforts in making sure that students are fundamentally strong. I would specifically mention That Mr Barham is the best . He is so thorough , caring and humble .i would recommend ericson school to everyone .

Last year I would have given this school 5 stars, this year (2014) I am only giving it 3 stars. The principal really sets the tone of the school. Unfortunately this year we got a new principal and vp. It is obvious she is inexperienced. Both the principal and vp are rarely seen on campus during school hours. If you have a problem/concern they just talk in circles and don't help the situation. With new administration there is obviously going to be a learning curve the first year. I hope next year will be better or we will look for another school.

We had an amazing kindergarten experience, with Ms. Downs providing an excellent learning environment. She was caring, attentive, and provided supplemental learning opportunities based on each child's strengths and weaknesses. The only reason this school did not get 5 stars is because there is definitely room for improvement. Communication between the school and parents could be more effective. We also found that events were not organized very well.

We have had our 3 kids in this school since my oldest was in kinder. She is now going into 5th. We have had some EXCELLENT teachers and some decent ones and one bad experience. Even with a bad teacher experience, the principal is accessible and very easy to work with and she went out of her way to accommodate our wants and needs. There has been an excellent music program which so many schools are missing today. There seems to be strong parent involvement and a supportive teachers team. would definitely recommend.

We're very happy with this school. The administration is easy to deal with and they try hard to add meaningful experiences for the kids. They have after school programs like Chinese classes, Chess, Yoga, and so on. I hope in the future they will bring in some science program after school. Parents and kids are nice here and the teachers are caring. Academically they are rigorous and with 40% English Learners they get results. The school could use more money but isn't that the case with all CA schools?

My son goes to school here and he completed his kindergarten and 1st standard here. we were extremely lucky to get Mrs White and Mrs Fitzgibbon as his teachers. I was really amazed to see the kind of efforts they put in creating an all round personalities . The school starting from principal , vice principal and all other functionaries put in a lot of effort in running the school well. We have been really pleased and would highly recommend the school .

My son has just started his 3rd year (2nd grade) at Ericson. I absolutely love the school. I especially love Mrs. Baits (1st grade), she is fantastic. The Principal is very hands and accessible. She really cares about the students. All of the staff has been friendly, helpful and caring. You definitely see their excellent standards day in and day out.

My daughter just recently graduated from Kindergarten in Ericson. Her teacher Ms. Jensen is an amazing teacher, she was great with the kids and she was really easy to talk to when there's any concerns. Ms. Jensen in one of the best teacher in Ericson, I said that because she made a personal yearbook for every single students in her classroom from 1st day up to their graduation day. Every child in her classroom has this personal yearbook, the time and effort she put on this yearbook in unbelievable. I would give miss 10 stars that's how great she was.

My daughter attended Kindergarten here and we absolutely loved it! We had to move out of the district so we are no longer at that school but I would recommend this school to anyone in the Mira Mesa area!

Ericson continues to be the best elementary school in Mira Mesa based on the API scores. This year's score is three away from 900. We have lost our dearly-beloved principal who has moved on to do her magic at another school; however, the new principal promises to be a good fit. This campus culture and climate continue to be safe and fun and encourage parent participation and involvement. My last son leaves for middle school next year, and we are beginning to miss Ericson already. There will always be a tender spot in our heart for the experience at this California Distinguished school!

Best school in the neighborhood. Three consecutive Title I Academic Acheivement Awards. Many opportunitues for parent involvement in the decision-making processes. Very active PTA. High-quality, experienced teachers. Strong programs for gifted students. Vocal and instrumental music programs, fun dress-up days tied to curriculum, great festivals in fall and spring, frequent family fun activities, frequent open meetings with principal, caring nurse on campus every day, friendly office staff. Couldn't ask for a better school.

My daughter is in the GATE Seminar. It is a good program overall. The strengths are language arts and math. The weakness is really science and history. The PTA is somewhat active but event notices come home right before the event giving you little time to plan. The school has a good newsletter which has extra's. There is little communication with me as a parent for my daughters class. OTOH she's doing fine so I guess I don't need so much contact. Overall I am happy. The school environment is excellent and clean. The education is excellent and top notch.

Based on API scores, Ericson is the best elementary school in the Mira Mesa area. This year, scores have placed Ericson in the top 15% in the district. Principal is knowledgable and motivating. Teachers are very involed and invested in their students. Some of the kindergarten teachers received national attention for their efforts to make kindergarten better. Parent involvement is ok. With a shortage of teachers aides, I've noticed some teachers really trying to enlist parent volunters/involvement. Yet it seems to be the same parents every year doing the volunteering. The school has a preschool Special Ed program that is very impressive. Appropriately, there is a lot of attention to reading and homework. I would like to see just a little more opportunity for fun, though. School is mostly blacktop and kids are not allowed to run. There is also no dressing up on Halloween, though PTA does some fun events.

We actually choiced our daugher into this school when she began kindergarten this year. I think it was the best decision we could make. She had she a wonderful teacher and the atmosphere we so great. The office staff is always cheerful. The principal is very involved in her school. We have very happy with this school and plan on choicing our other daughter there next year.

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.
