Neil A. Armstrong Elementary School 5

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.

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 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.
