Since the first year for the new principle, who has no experience beside from teaching kindergarten,and has very poor communication with families. Things are changed, and not in a good way. Most (MOST) of the parents are not satisfied, and the school rating is dropping down. I am hoping she will realize that, and step down, for some one who can do better for the school, and our kids, all the 5 stars reviews is very old before the new principle things are not the same now .
One start is for the teachers. The teachers are great, but the guidelines about the intra-district transfers is horrible. They don't want to make any exception about any student who has move out of the district and they won't try hard to keep them in. The principal is a Witch and I'm glad to be taking her out of the school anyways. PS. Not a very secure campus for disaster.
My kids are going into 6th, and 3rd grades at Hidden Valley, and we have had so much fun here! Our principal retired last year, so we're stating the year off with someone new. We also have an assistant principal this year, so hopefully things will be evan better! I love this school. and so do my kids
I AM SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE FOUND THIS SCHOOL WHEN OUR FAMILY FIRST MOVED TO SANTA ROSA. TEACHER CONSTANTLY MAKES SURE THAT ALL OUR QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ARE ANSWERED. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A DEDICATED AND LOVING EDUCATOR AS MY CHILD'S.
Santa Rosa city schools are primarily ALL failing and the SR district is horrible to deal with. Its a crying shame that not all kids get an equal education. I couldn't get my child into my own district schools that are not failing, but very glad I got into a higher performing school outside my district. A shame its a complete mess however.
I love Hidden Valley Satellite because their is a genuine feeling of community there. The exceptional staff of teachers are highly respected by the students. The quality of education is equivalent to a private school and the extra-curricula activities offered there are fabulous. My son can't wait to get their in the morning!
Our school is an amazing school with caring teachers and parents working as a tema to make this school the best place for our children to get an amazing education. Our principle is caring, attentive and goes to bat for our kids, teachers and parents. I love Hidden Valley Satellite.
