As a parent of a kindergartner, this is my first year impression of MRE listed as thumbs up or down: Thumbs up 1. Great parent involvement and many activities for parents to be involved in. 2. Nice campus. 3. Active and engaging principal. 4. Good enrichment classes for arts and science. 5. Really good PE teacher. 6. Strong core of parents who run the FFA. 7. Positive learning environment with some good teachers. 8. Friendly parents and kids. Thumbs down 1. Overcrowded classrooms with one teacher. 30 kids to a class is absurd. 2. Allowing too many kids to "Choice" in or bus in. If the school can't manage a reasonable class size for the neighborhood kids, they should not let kids from outside the neighborhood to attend. This is not a knock against the "Choicers" as they are good kids but rather an unhappiness with policy. 3. Front office staff could be better. One, in particular, is just plain out rude and is lucky to have a job. 4. Miserly ungrateful parents who didn't contribute to the pledge drive. With 710 kids, the pledge drive should have easily raised more than $63,000. Any parent who didn't contribute at least $200 should bow their head in shame.

I love this school because it has a great community feel. The teachers, staff and families all have a close relationship and it feels like a big family.

The moto for this school is "Work Hard, Be Nice" and the students, teachers, administrators, and volunteers all live up to it. The school is a fantastic environment for children to grow with both rigorous academics and plenty of time for the children the move around and play. The school offers science, music, P.E., computer instruction, and art (through a parent-volunteer program) in addition to the regular curriculum. My son is only in first grade now, but I am confident that he will continue to grow and thrive at this school.

Miramar Ranch is a great school with impressive state testing results, good teachers, and a very involved Family Faculty Association that raises money for science, music, art and lots of other programs the district does not provide.

Miramar Ranch is a fabulous school from the teachers to the principal and the volunteers! I've had several kids attend Miramar Ranch and the teachers did a great job preparing them for the next grade as well as middle and high school as far as academics, time management and organization. Our principal is outstanding! She has a fun personality, is great with children and has the respect of the teachers. The volunteers are an amazing part of the school providing lessons in Art Corps, Character Education and choir - creating well rounded children.

I agree with the reviewer who said that this school could be great but it is not. Parent participation is high. Hey have a great running club that many students arrive early and participate in. The campus is beautiful and the parents are friendly. There are some GREAT teachers at this school and then there are some that should not be teaching. Example would be the kindergarten dept. This is not addressed to all the kindergarten teachers. But my child's teacher never smiles and always looks frustrated with her job. My child does not like her teacher because "she is mean and yells at us." This is my child's first impression of her formal education and this is the best that MRE can do? Also punctuality at this school does not seem to be important either. Longer after the 2nd bell rings there are so many kids leisurely walking to their classrooms. Same faces everyday so obviously the teachers and principal aren't bothered by this.

Miramar Ranch is an outstanding, nurturing place for your child to be. Many of the teachers are highly-experienced and dedicated professionals that combine hands-on learning with high-expectations. Teachers really collaborate across their grade level to make sure they are doing their best to meet the needs of the students. In addition to classroom time, students benefit from library visits, a science lab, a computer lab, art lessons, character education lessons, assemblies, visiting professionals, and field trips. Parent volunteers on campus are a common sight. We have been at the school for seven years and are quite happy.

This school could be excellent-it is good. It does have excellent teachers in each grade level, but getting them is the challenge. Why there are not strong teachers in all rooms at such a great school, I still don't understand that. I have heard teachers that yell- I find that unacceptable! They ask for money for this and for that, help with this and for that all the time, but when you need help for a better placment for your child or share your concerns you get ignored-that is sad to me. You'll find the own teacher's kids to be with the "best felt" teacher's rooms---so good to know. They tend to split up a class in some grade levels every year- I feel better planning could avoid this. They don't seem to feel that is a disruption or area they can fix for the kids. A class change isn't always the right move for every child. The janitor is AWESOME! Friendly and welcoming and knows everyone! Limited field trips is disappointing. Paula in the office is class act! She is a so wonderful! It is a good school it could be MUCH better. It should make families concerns number one and start moving in the right direction.

I am extrememly impressed with Miramar Ranch. My son attended for two years (kindergarten & first grade) and the experience has been beyond positive. The community of teachers and parents make this school successful. We are relocating and my son is sad to be leaving Miramar Ranch, as am I.

I am confident that my daughter will graduate from this school prepared for all the challeges she will face in life! The princepal is very commited in helping the students reach new heights. You should enroll your son/daughter in this excellent school so they can suceed in life. As a child, i went to Miramar Ranch Elementary school and they helped me achieve a great goal in my life, i am now a sucessful surgeon. Their campus is full of greenery and smiles of the students that attend this amazing school. The educators have a true love for teaching children what they will need to be great in life. So be smart and enroll your child/children in Miramar Ranch Elementary School.

I have 2 children at this school and it's our 5th year at MRE. Our principal is very approachable and well received by parents and students. The teaching staff is filled with many individuals who truly love to teach. Despite ongoing budget problems statewide, our parents really pitch in physically, financially and at home to help these students succeed. I haven't heard of or experienced anything like the negative review from Nov. 2010. We've got terrific school spirit and the school has a very warm, welcoming feel to it.

I've had 2 children go thru the school--approximately 9 years! Before my first child went there, I was apprehensive. However, friends enlightened me and it turned out to be a great school. The teachers are great--some of the best in the district, in my opinion. They really care about the children. Can't say enough about the Principal! She is wonderful with the children. She sits in each classroom to observe. She is totally hands on. It's going to be hard when my children are out of the school. Miramar Ranch has a great Science Lab, PE Department, Running Club, Computer Lab, and has several family oriented events--Ice Cream Social, Science Nights, JogAThon, H'ween Carnival, Book Fairs and much more!

Beware this school is not a friendly or family oriented school. Teachers are mean and the principal does not care. Teachers yell at kids in public. Kindergarten teachers are just baby sitters. They don't teach. Attending this school, your child will only suffer emotional trauma like my son.

A decent school however, my child has special medical needs and they only have a nurse on grounds once a week!! Not good at an elementary school...other than that I think it is a pretty good school

I had 2 children attend MMRE from K-6 and K-5 and I feel very fortunate that they had the great opportunity to attend this school. My son was well prepared for Middle School and remained a 4.0 student throughout 9th Grade (in advanced classes). The seminar program at MMRE is outstanding in particular at the 5th grade level where my daughter has the privilege to be taught by the best teacher one can wish for. All in all, I am forever thankful for the wonderful expereince MMRE has provided for my children. The Principal is great and her leadership and focus is outstanding. The campus is beautiful as well.

We moved here recently and have been very impressed by both teachers and staff members. The parent community is also very involved and there is a great number of activities. This year they got traffic patrol of the year for all of San Diego Unified School District. I highly recommend checking out their web site: http://www.miramarranch.org

We have had two wonderful teachers and one not so great. I feel in public school that it's hard to catch the ones that should be pushed further ahead. It's also hard to pick out the ones that need more help due to the class size and work overload. I find the principal and staff very nice and helpful, but I need to point things out most of the time.

I have 2 children in their first year at this school. I feel the teaching staff lacks empathy, substance, core teaching values, organization and very basic proactive parent/teacher communication skills. I have been entirely disappointed with this school socially, academically, personally, and interactively.

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.
