Hello! My name is Orlando Cortez, I can say that proudly I m an eagle, built at your great school. I studied elementary school from 3rd to 6th grade, from the year 2000 - 2003, at Nicoloff Elementary School. I made wonderful friends and my teachers were the best that I ever had (Ms. Elva Lopez Zepeda, Ms. Garcia, Mrs. Burgue o and Mr. San Giovanni). I missed my old classrooms, the cafeteria, the library and even the ladies that were in charged of students when we were at lunch time or recess. Mrs, Robinson and her daughter Becky as the librarians, Mrs. Malek and Ms. Livengood (both principals). I would love to travel in time and live for only one more day those times, sorrounded by wonderful people who made my life special at those days.

I did not like this school at all! My daughter went there for Pre-school and Kindergarden and I did not like the way she was being treated. The teachers are rude, LOUDE AND ANGRY towards the students!, the main office staff is ever worse, the principal only cared about leaving early every time I needed to talk to her about an issue I had with the teachers it seemed that she was never there. The lunch cafeteria was serving old moldy expired food. If it wasn't for the parents that volunteered there that noticed this, some of the students would have gotten food poisoning. It seems like they should fire every one of their staff members and get new people that are willing to put all their efforts in our children. I had multiple issues with various teachers because of their awful way of teaching. They are not concerned about our children's safety for sure! My daughter got out of her Kindergarden class towards the parking lot and the door was wide open, the teacher never noticed, this issue did not end well. I had to transfer her to another class room because of this matter. OVERALL WORSE SCHOOL EVER!

This is my second year at this school and I am very impressed with the new school principal and most of the teachers. I do wish the office staff was friendlier and more helpful.

I do not give a good review to this school. My son just went there for a few weeks, and believe me that was enough to place this school in one of the worst of the whole south bay school district.

My daughter attended this scholl from K-3rd, the teachers are dedicated but the office personal is very rude to the children as well with parents, I think that with some personal interactiontraining they can be a lot better. Good luck!

I like the way teachers, the principal and assistant principal got involved with my son when they detected he was having some problems with his learning. It's nice to know they care about the children. Vicky Rosario

My sister atteded this school and now so are my 2 daughters. I think this is a great school that is very involved in their students learning and education. They have a great reading program('Star Reader') in which they receive incentives for the more they read. This really help to keep the kids going. They also give students recognition for their efforts every month.
