Distinguished public school that challenges children in a nurturing way. Big focus on learning. My daughter's evaluations when she had to repeat first grade were very accurate, and my son's report cards have also reflected his strengths and areas to improve. Multi-cultural school where everyone is respected. Through the years, a couple of staff members have not been favorites, but overall, a great school.
School focuses on just pushing students through rather than making sure they're actually learning. They're not honest with real issues with student's performance and would rather just push the issues under the rug until its no longer their problem. Move them down the road and let someone else deal with them. Very disappointing that teaches would rather pass students through to keep a clean face/record than to tackle performance issues themselves. This just ends up exposing the teacher's weakness and lack of true teaching ability. Very unfortunate.
Best parent involvement ever! Love the school, love the principal. Love it!
Excellent school. The staff at N.A is awesome, my son has really excelled here. The principal, teachers and staff are great!
I have two kids at Neil Armstrong and it's excellent! It is academic challenging, strong PTA, Parent, and Academic Booster support. A National Blue Ribbon School and a California Distinguished School. Be prepared as a parent! You get involved too in their academic excellence... My kinder was doing presentations by the end of school year and they just keep getting harder and need your help as a parent. Mr. Foucart, the Principal, is great!
This is one of the best schools in California academically, how ever it is unfortunate that there screening process is not more in depth for teachers and staff! We dealt with some of the most racist and byest people I've ever met. After transferring my kids out of there school we were shown documents from the school that we were never meant to see where they talked about my kids racially. We were also told my kids should be held back and were behind academically however my kids both got higher test scores then 90% of there classmates. Its sad a few bad apples ruined this school for us.
This school is great, the teachers and principal are very engaged. The before and after school care center is also great.
The school is great! Good teachers, good grounds and good on site day care. Would recommend to anyone.
This is a wonderful school. The Focus program is well worth the extra money. Wonderful caring teachers. I would highly recommend.
This is a blue ribbon school with many devoted teachers and assistants as well as many volunteers. Parent involvement is at an above level. Computer class is a very helpful class for all students.
Excellent Blue Ribbon School. New computer lab; multipurpose room; and classrooms. Has science, computer, art programs. Heavy parent involvement in FOCUS alternative program for the district.
The principal and teachers are outstanding. Every program is outstanding. What a wonderful place for a child to learn. The computer lab is run by one of the nicest and hardest working educators I have ever met. The librarians are so helpful the children. The Para educators are outstanding also. All the personnel at Neil Armstrong are supportive of parent participation and very helpful in the all around education of each and every child. I don't think I have ever seen a Science teacher who is respected and loved by every student at Neil Armstrong. The Front office staff are also very supportive and helpful to all involved. If I have left anyone at Neil Armstrong without praise it is only by mistake. Thank you so much for your support in educating and molding our two girls for a wonderful future in education.- Chuck & Desiree Aslinger
Neil Armstrong is a wonderful school. My daughter was very happy there. The teachers are great, and there are so many parent volunteers that many wonderful things get accomplished. The classrooms are well stocked, the grounds are clean and I felt very safe with my daughter there.
My son is in the FOCUS program, which includes a second language and 20 hrs. min parent involvement. Your contribution pays for extra aid and hours, as well. This school is a national blue ribbon winner and is fantastic!
