My two kids have been attending this school for three years and I have liked every single teacher they've had. Love this school.

There has been so many changes in the last few years and not positive changes. There is no effectual response to discipline problems. Teachers, as hard as they work, do not get back up when needed. The morale of the staff is extremely low. The students know that they will not be held accountable for their actions. It is sad. There are so many wonderful teachers and staff that love the students and if administration would step up, maybe the school could get back to being proud.

Three kids through Village and our youngest just started middle school leaving us 3/3 having thrived in middle school because of being prepared well. If we had a do-over, we would happily choose Village again.

I can not rave enough about this amazing school! We transferred into the school from another district and feel blessed to be a part of the school community. The Principal is dynamic, invested, focused and caring. The Teachers are superb. BUT, my FAVORITE thing about Village is the diversity! The families of Village truly represent the best of America: they stem from many backgrounds but are all focused on a successful and prosperous future for their children. A++++++++++

Our school has experienced some challenging situations which have been blown out of proportion thru the use of social media. I, for one, wish to express my heartfelt support for the teachers, staff, and principal at Village Elementary. We all want the same things for our children; a safe learning environment and a quality education. Let's look forward to a great year, and do whatever we can to support our children, and our school.

My son has received an outstanding education with an emphasis on reading and math. He has had quality teachers. He loves the science and the science lab. The leadership is effective and fair.

A wonderful school. The teachers are dedicated to their students. The principal is approachable and involved with the students. The new office manager is helpful. My children love their school.

My two daughters currently go to Village. We, too, had difficulties with the previous crazy principal, but luckily for us, she is gone and a new principal is there. She seems to be doing a great job. The teachers there really do care about your kids and offer them a chance at a good education/experience. Not to say that there aren't some exceptions to that, either...there are a couple of poor ones (but I think you'll find that everywhere).

My children and I love this school. There are many after school activities available. They also have band and a great P.E. teacher. All of the teachers are wonderful, especially Ms. Hendrickson in 6th grade. My son can't wait to go to school each day and is excited about what he learns. She's a caring and supportive teacher who always has a smile for the children. I will definitely request her again when my daughter enters 6th grade. I highly recommend this school.

Love the teachers but very unhappy with the principal. Kids say she's only nice when a parent is around. Left to go to another school. We loved all the extra things that the school had to offer especially band and PE! I think more could be done with the parental involvement.

I have two childern at village and I feel they receive an above average education(top notch) every teacher we've had has been great,the physical education teacher (the kids call him coach Sam) is amazing and the over all comunication from teacher to parent or parent to teacher is good Ms. Howeing does a great job in faciltating that comunication if it is needed. I feel Ms. Hoewing alway trys to do whats best for the children.

I have been a Village parent since 1997 and I love the teachers. The parents club is very active and they have lots of events for the whole family to enjoy. I see many of the same parents participating but every year it seems to grow. The music teacher and chorus teacher are of high quality and make learning music fun. My only complaint would be the principal, Mrs. Hoewing. I feel the principal is not a good advocate for the children and school. It would be nice to get some new ideas brought into the school by a new principal.

My son loves Village Elementary School. His favorite teacher is Mrs. Warrick because she is able to make learning fun. He loves the Principal, Mrs. Hoewing, and stops by to say 'hi' whenever he can. It is obvious, as a parent, that the principal and teachers love their students and their school. My dealings with the principal and the teachers have been positive and I am looking forward to four more years at Village.

The teachers are fabulous. The parental involvement fair, although many families have 2 working parents. It's a fabulous mix of ethnicities, socio-economic and educational backgrounds - probably the most diverse elementary school in Santa Rosa. The principal is marginal, but the teachers more than make up for the principal's shortcomings. Adequate extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, the state has cut budget to all schools for sports, art, music, science etc. Parents groups are providing funding for extra science programs. Overall a very positive learning environment.

My daughter is in Mrs McEnery's kindergarten class. This is her first year with her own Kindergarten class, and she is great! Previously a NY college dance instructor she is great at using movement to get the children involved and understanding them. My daughter loves her class and her teacher.

My daughter went to Village from K-6th grade. For the most part, I liked all of her teachers and I feel like she had a very positive experience there. Sam, the P.E. teacher was a stand out influence and mostly everyone there seems to be involved and energetic. The band was also quite exceptional and really cultivated a love of saxophone for my daughter.

This school is fantastic, except for the Principal. The teachers and all other staff are great. My kids have loved going to school. There is alot of parent involvment. It is a very family oriented school.

This is one of the hidden gems in all Santa Rosa. There are some outstanding teachers at this school and they maintains very strong academic expectations for all students. It is also one of the most diverse student populations of any elementary on the east side of Santa Rosa. The principal, Mrs. Howeing, is very positive and helpful. The school offers both choral and instrumental music, daycare and after school enrichment programs have recently begun and have been a lot of fun. This school is worth looking into if you want a nice balance between string academics and a diverse community.

my child is in kindergarden. Mrs Warricks class. I think its a great school. Theres alot of parent participation. There is not aid for kindergarden due to cut backs, so its great that the parents can help. 20 children in kindergarden. Not sure what 1st-6th ratios are. The only complaint I have is they don't give the kindergartens enough time to eat lunch. I've actually went to lunch with my daughter. I counted the time from when we sat down to eat, until it was time to leave. 8 minutes was what they gave them. I talked to the principle about it, but she basically said 'the children get 45 minutes for lunch and playing outside'. So if teachers running alittle late or the children have to wait outside the cafateria for any length of time it takes away from there eating time. Mrs. Warrick has alot of fun things she does.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
