This school has come a long way! There was some turbulence for a couple of years but all of that has changed. The school has two excellent programs- an English-only program and a Spanish / English Dual Immersion program for both English and Spanish speakers. Both programs provide rigor and push their students to reach the new Common Core State Standards. The PTA is organized and offers many family and community events. There are lots of enrichment opportunities for students before and after school. The teachers, staff and principal are friendly and supportive. Field is a great school!
My son is in the State Preschool, 2014/2015, special education section. It's a fantastic program with a great teacher, Ms Dana. We have been excited about his progress in this great program. All the volunteers seem nice. Front office staff are friendly.
It's important that people inquire about schools in person. Many of the "concerns" stated here are inaccurate, and of course, those reading can only see an upset parent's perspective. Please, visit our school and make up your own mind about the staff and the school environment. That's the ONLY way to find out if a school will be "great" to you!!
I have one daughter in 1st grade and one daughter in kindergarten. Their teachers are rude and yell at them most the time. They don't learn much from school, I have to send them to private tutor. My daughters use curse words when they come home.
I was a student at field ever sence I had first started school. This school is one of the best school in the San Diego Scool Distrect. They have taught me well, and helped me when I needed it. Also Field has a 6 to 6 program. I went to the 6 to 6 and it was great. The staff are really nice. All the tearchers at Field are the best. I would recommend this school to anybodys children.
This is our fourth year at this school. The staff and teachers are wonderful. Our PTA provides more to the school each year and more parents continually get involved. However, there is still room for improvement on the parent involvement side. So, if you are looking for a school for your child or children, look no further, you will have found a family with us at Field Elementary.
