As with every other school in the district, this school is not perfect. But, my child will remain here as long as possible. She is now in first grade and she got an excellent education as kindergartner. I make it my personal mission to know what's going on in this school and of coarse, that pays off. Parents are just as responsible in their child's education inside the classroom as the school's staff. My daughter always talks about her 'cool' art projects and tae kwon doe. And she always has a song to sing about something new she's learned. Anyone in that school that my daughter had contact with on a regular basis, I did as well. The school is great because the staff as well as my personal involvement make it that way.

I was a former student at Nubia and I think it is a ok school and all but the staff should improve. How ever the teachers are great really great and now i'm in the 7th grade and I still see some of my favorite teachers there and I still sometimes even go to Nubia and yea I think it is a great school and this school is the reason i'm in a gate class so if you want your child to have a good education then send them to Nubia

My son went to Nubia for his first 2 years of school, thank god he had really good trachers so he as an individual did very well in his grades but I felt that the school did not have much ethnic diversity which is a shame because that is a part of life, My son comes from many different backgrounds and I feel that he was not growing in a way that he would know how to deal with other cultures and religions. Anyway I saw that other kids that had the same issue were also treated different by most of the students there. So I sent my kid to another school. I did like that they went on alot of field trips and alway had the kids doing some kind of activity.

I felt that my child wasn't learning what I hope that a fourth grader should. I spend almost everyday at the school when my child was in the fourth grade and I knew that she would be returning the following year.

My son has had good and bad experience at Nubia. So far the Teachers he has had were superb. The students & other staff need to show respect to all; and improve on communication. I feel there is favortism given to some of the students. The Principal could show better leadership and repond to inquiries and e-mails. There is always room for improvement and Nubia needs to head in that direction. I have mix reviews about Nubia on a scale of 1-10 Nubia gets a 4.5.

Nubia Leadership Academy has some of the best teachers in San Diego County. Many of them have a genuine and vested interest in the children's growth, academically and educationally. Some of the teachers are pursuing higher education, in order to provide better service to the students. It is encouraged by the Principal to continuously improve teacher's skill level of teaching. I would recommend parents who children are in K-4 to attend Nubia Leadership Academy.

Nubia is a great school. I was really impressed with their program that sends 6th graders that have met certain academic and citizenship qualifications to Europe for a week as part of their social studies curriculum. They also offer Taekwondo lessons once a week to students and have a safety week which is alot of fun for the children. They also require that all parents sign a contract to committ to volunteering a certain number of hours per year, they have many opportunities available.

My daughter has been attending Nubia since the 1st grade and is now in the 3rd and she enjoys school very much. We as parents instill a lot of discipline and extra educational curriculum ourselves for our child. She is a top student and receives several awards a year and gets all A's in class however,I am afraid that if Nubia does not step up to the world of technology she will fall behind. Due to they are not even using computers in class yet and the physical education needs to be more involved in the curriculum. They teach Tae kwondo and my daugter attends one day a week and with the rise of obesity and overweight in children we need more activity. Overall the school works well with what they have but they need to improve in some areas.

As a former parent of a student that attended Nubia I was pleased with my childs first grade experience and teacher whom went the extra mile and dedicated her time assist my child in improving academically. Unfortunately, not all staff shows such dedication or team effort. I believe the neccesity to strive to ones potential derives from an institute that is well structured. Nubia needs to work on structure. Therefore, I do not recommend this school as a suitable academic program.

This school has given my son a great start from k-4 so far. Most of the teachers he has had have been willing to challenge him to do well academically. There are no music or sports activities available. Tae Kwon Do is taught and is a great tool for discipline. The test scores are good.

I am very pleased with my childs teacher this year. As it is his first school experience, I am thankful to have a male teacher who seems to really care about the kids.

As the parent of a former student who attended Nubia from K-5th Grade, I must say that the total Leadership of the school needs to be revamped from the bottom up. The school offered so much promise for future growth initially but failed to meet the demands of the ever-changing needs of the students, faculty and staff. Although my child achieved greatly, I am highly disappointed in the examples being set at this school and would not recommend Nubia to any potential faculty, students or otherwise. Parents need to do whatever it takes to ensure the success of their childs' academic well-being and this includes researching the school prior to registration.

My two nieces attend this school. They love the school and their teachers. My sister told me about the school, and since my family will be moving temporarily to the area, I am thinking of enrolling one of my children to the school.

My daughter has attended Nubia for two years. I have seen amazing growth both in her academics and her confidence. She misses the school she used to attend, but loves Nubia. When your chid enjoys school, their teachers, and friends, then you know they are going to get the most out of their education. I know that the school can improve in many areas, but with what they have, they are doing an incredible job!

My son has been at Nubia since the first grade. His first two years there were wonderful, there was structure, teachers were concerened about their students. Now he's in the fourth grade, and on my days off I like to go the school. There's lack of discipline at the school, kids are disrespectful to the teachers. This school can improve, and as a parent I would like to see this happen. The Principal could also improve in her leadership role.

I had some mixed reviews before entering my son into kindergardenat Nubia. I heard good and bad things. In the end we did enroll him. My son teacher, Ms. Paula is the best. We have seen a major change in his behavior and academic studies. She has lots of patience. I'm so glad that we made the decision to take our son to Nubia. We look forward to many more successful years at Nubia. Thanks Nubia!

My son was a student at Nubia from 1998 to graduating this year from the sixth grade. He has learned to enjoy reading and writing. He enjoys poety and even writes now and then. He has learned to have pride in who he is and to be accountable for things he has done. At times it was a battle to get things done, but with the support from school and at home things were accomplished. At Nubia one of the most important things is every child needs that support and love from home. Parent involvement is a key factor in our children getting a head start in life. Because of this my son is looking forward to middle school and will be able to put his best foot forward because of the strong foundation he has received from school and home. But like anything else there are some shortcomings at Nubia. Supplies are in demand and every parent needs to be involved in the education process.

Fortunately our girls have had wonderful teachers in the past two years. Unforturnatly there were issues with supplies and textbooks in their classrooms. I do hope that in the new year all classes will have the text books and supplies needed for children to stay on track.

There is always room for improvement at any school and Nubia does put its foot forward in discipline and try to get parent particapation so for its effort they rank a 5. Im not impressed with the before and after school staff its in need of professionalism as well as empathy for all children they were once young themselves.
