Los Arboles Elementary School1

This school is terrible. My daughter is in kinder and there was no information given prior to school starting. On the first day the teacher said nothing to the parents. No communication at all. I continually get bills for lunch because the teacher keeps submitting names, yet my daughter has never eaten lunch there. Weekly parent meetings are not welcoming or inclusive of English speakers. Everything is in Spanish and the atmosphere is socially isolating for non Hispanic students which can cause depression and self esteem issues when a young child is unable to communicate with other children and can't make friends because they only speak in Spanish to each other. If at all possible, do not send your children here if you care for their educational or psychological well being.
This school serves a diverse multi-ethnic community, 70% of which are english learners. There is a solid cell based language arts program, computer technology in every room. There is also an accelerated reader program. School wide discipline includes conflict resolution.
