This school fosters community -- among the students and parents alike. While it's not a small school per se (360 kids), it feels like it. Class sizes are low, teachers take great care to get to know the students and families.
One kid just graduated (with a passion for Shakespeare because of a stellar 5th grade teacher) and one is still there (and developed a love of reading from a warm and motivational 2nd grade teacher). Miraloma is a happy, friendly and engaging place. The principal, teachers and support staff try to meet the needs of every student. The parent community is active at all levels. There are always parents around, helping in the class rooms or the snack program. The PTA is well organized and fund raising is effective, so the school offers ceramics, poetry, drama, dance, PE and reading intervention. The after school programs are wonderful. You can't go wrong sending your kids here.
My son attends Miraloma entering the 1rst grade. So far our experience has been great. Miraloma has a very strong community with parents that are very involved and create an environment for success. The teachers and faculty our great. The PTA raises a decent amount of money to fund extra programs including PE, arts, literacy and math experts and lower class room sizes.
Fantastic school! It is everything that an elementary school should be... art, music, poetry, dedicated teachers and principal, etc...
I intend to visit the school soon to inspect in order to compare and select the best school for my children.
My son (and only child) is starting kinder garden at this school, and so far everyone from staff have been very helpful, polite and have welcomed us in the best way they can. The principal has two children ( I think) attending to this school, which that itself says a lot and gives me confidence that he will be in good hands. At orientation, I got to meet his teacher, the classroom and facilities and so far I"M LOVING this school for my son. I'm happy I picked Miraloma, even though it wasn't my first pick, I am happy that things happened this way. Very satisfied!
The parent-teacher community is wonderful. The school itself is a bright, happy place - my spirits lift just walking in the doors. Everyone is always smiling. The principal is very accessible, he walks the halls and yards every day, and knows every child by name. It's a special place.
Miraloma has a supportive, inclusive environment. I have loved all my daughter's teachers, the principal is amazing, parents are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer in the classrooms or in many other capacities. I can't wait until my son starts.
Miraloma Elementary is an amazing school! Our oldest daughter is on her 3rd year and our youngest is about to enter kindergarten. The teachers, staff, and parents here at Miraloma help provide an eductional environment where our children learn to thrive intellectually and socially. I would recommend Miraloma to anyone!
The school has all the elements that a good school should; Caring teaches, and principal, involved parents and good children.
the entire staff is caring and creativein promoting learning and living
A community of people dedicated to the best interests of the children.
Excellent Principle, devoted teachers, progressive student inclusion and conflict resolution programs
The Teachers are compassionate, commited and invested in the kids. The principle does a great job building this school into a tight community. The parents are active and involved.
Most amazingly compassionate, inclusive, smart, and action-oriented community I've ever been part of, from teachers to principal to parents to kids. Child-centered and teacher-centered learning environment at its best.
A sunny place full of energetic kids, volunteer parents, dedicated teachers, and an inspiring principal. Colorful art and crafts are created along a spectrum of subjects that include singing, dance, gardening, ceramics, and poetry. Children are active participants from 'runathons' to 'readathons' - all in all a great place to be a kid!
this is a wonderful elementary school with great teachers, a fantastic principal and a very involved parent community.
Miraloma Elementary has a diverse, engaged community of families, dedicated, creative teachers, and is led by a Principal with vision and charisma, who knows every child and parent.
Our son loves his school. We look forward when our daughter will go there.
