Well- Looking at the many years I've been here, it's been a wonderful ride. My kids have really thrived at this school. All the teachers nurture growth and development of math, reading, and writing skills. The homework load is always balanced so the kids aren't stressed out. The environment for learning is very healthy. There are rarely issues of bullying on campus. The principal always talks to the students and helps them learn about what the HAGE WAY means.They encourage the students to be active and physically fit through meetings with the PE staff. Across the board you will see caring, loving teachers who really have a passion for what they're doing. Most teachers at the school have been there for 10 or more years. The subs are also usually retired teachers from Hage. Not all of them but quite a few.t's a parent taught art program. They also have parent volunteers who can read with children who need an extra push in their skills. Student in 4 and 5 grade are encouraged to join band and orchestra this year We hope that you and your family can be a part of the Hage Family.

One of the best elementary school in Mira Mesa! The principal, teachers, and staff are professional, caring, and knowledgable. With that said, it may just have the worst group of PTA I have ever seen. Very cliquey! They don't do anything but gossip! They are constantly at school, every single day. For what, you say? Nothing, really. They sit there and talk about people. On campus! Bring your kids to Hage but be aware of these evil women because you might just be their next target.

I believe that, in many organizations, culture and attitude start at the top and trickle down from there. That is definitely true at Hage. The principal, Eric Takeshita (or Mr. T as everyone knows him), is an amazing person who creates a culture of caring and excellence at this school. We are lucky to have him! Not only does he do a great job of running Hage, he also is a very shrewd politician when it comes to dealing with the local school board, and knows how to push his agenda when necessary to benefit our children. That is what makes him truly unique and invaluable to us. Beyond Mr. T, the rest of the staff are all excellent as well. I've never met a teacher I didn't like there, and I've met almost all of them by now. The auxiliary staff is also excellent, from the "office ladies" to the janitors. This school has a very active and strong PTA which adds a lot of value for our children. Through fundraisers and events, the PTA provides funding for the school swim program, buses for field trips, art lessons, and extra supplies for teachers.

I love this school. My daughter was in a kinder/first grade combo class and she did extremely well. As parents, we must be proactive in our children's education. We cannot solely rely on just our teachers. They are the foundation but we must put forth the effort to help them progress. The school is amazing! Keep up the good work!

My son was a GATE student. The teacher he received was not a GATE teacher. Teacher incompetence was immediately noticeable via grammatical errors on classroom wall postings. After requesting more rigorous assignments, the teacher called CPS and made up such a horrible story that we were investigated. These people will tell you that GATE classes have mixed students because diversity is important. What they don't tell you is that it is impossible to teach multiple curriculums to multiple needs. Don't believe their lies about the GATE program. They are unqualified to deal with exceptional students, 90% of the teachers are in it for paychecks and pensions, not the kids. Its a public school in every way and form.

Teachers are great. Principal is awesome. Alot of the kids in grade 1 at least do not show respect to others and there is alot of teasing going on. Since this is the only school that my daughter has attended I cannot compare it with other schools - too bad because I may want to switch her.

I've just went there to register for my son for kindergarten today. The staff working there were very impolite and quite rude It was really chaos there. They just want to get rid of you as fast as they can without trying to answer your questions or basically just ignore you so they can relax and sit down on their chairs. I am hoping that my son will be accepted to other schools. This is the worst school I have ever been to.

I have two boys in the school. Some teachers did outstanding job. Some class rooms are very hot during summer. That make my little one had bloody nose some days since he is very sensitive with heat.

My son is a kindergarten student at Hage this year and I am very happy with the school. It is a very safe and friendly environment where he is thriving. He has excelled in reading especially which is very exciting. My only concern is that he is starting to get bored as he continues to outdistance his classmates in this area. But the individual attention he has received in order to continue to excel has been phenomenal. Overall an excellent public school.

My daughter started Kindergarten four weeks ago and we could not be happier with Hage. Her teacher is amazing and the entire faculty is top notch. As a parent torn between public and private school, I'm happy to say we made the right choice.

You could not ask for a better school for your child to be in. I have a fourth grader and a kindergartner, every single teacher is caring and really takes the time to know you. The PE program is excellent, and they really encourage parent involvement. Overall Awsome Job!! I could not thank these teachers enough for the wonderfull job they do everydat!

This is our first year at Hage Elementary, thanks to the Choice program. I specifically chose this school based on diversity and quality education I knew my children would receive. My son has flourished at this school. The staff maintains a high level of respect and communication with the parents and children. I enjoy the vast diversity my son is exposed to and the 'open door' policy for parent volunteers. I do think school starts too early in the morning, I'd prefer it to start 1/2 hr to an hour later-with release being a little later, as my kindergartener does struggle with the timing so early in the morning. I am impressed with the physical fitness department and their highly tuned program designed to help children maximize their classroom learning. I am very glad we send our child to Hage!

My child has only been at the school for 4 weeks and feels right at home. We chose this school because we heard what family friendly atmosphere it has. It has truly lived up to our expectations and above. The involvement and opportunity for parents to help at the school is tremendous. They have an everyday PE class with physical fitness experts. The teachers aren't just there for the paycheck (though I truly know that teachers deserve a huge raise) They are there for kids and they love them. The Kindergarten team is very particular in making sure the child is released to the parent or caretaker that they know. There is excellent discipline in the class. The teacher has a great system rewarding the positive behavior and gently reminding those who need to change or improve their behavior. The PTA is number one everyone should get involved.

Don't know how hage ranks test scores-wise, but i can say this: Hage teachers aren't just 'punching the clock.' Hage teachers are passionate about each student. Elsewhere students might be taught strictly 'by the book,' but here at hage students are taught 'from the heart.' While achievement is important, true love of learning is even more emphasized. Demographics: in other more 'homogeneous vanilla' schools, 'diversity' is taught artificially through politically correct social studies lessons. But at Hage, there is a great mix of ethnic / economic backgrounds, so students seem to get a better, more natural appreciation of diversity. PTA: very active. Parent volunteers very appreciated, and always needed...In class, or with PTA, or for field trips. Environment: cheerful, supportive, creative, quality, safe. Innocence of childhood is nurtured and protected to every reasonable degree, by making respect, good choices, safety,and kindness key concepts throughout the day.

I have three children attending Hage. They are in 3rd, 4th, and Kindergarten. I have had a wonderful experience with the school. My oldest is in the GATE program and is being challenged in a terrific environment. All of their teachers have risen to the expectation of challenging them at their own potential. The school encourages parent participation in the classroom, and I have seen wonderful teachers do a terric job. I am very pleased with Hage Elementary.

This is my daughter first year in Hage. I personally like this school a lot. Eventhough I can't involve in class, cause I have an infant with me. But my girl keep telling me how much she loves school more aday and she has been learning and enjoying the school each day. I also can see her knowledge shoot up fast and as well as her physical. The teacher is so reponsive, loving, and detail. Plus the school campus is very clean. The lunch meals are excellent too. I would highly recommand this school to others!

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.
