Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school has been very good to great in the past. However, the new Superintendent/Principal doesn't seem effective. The school is split up among racial lines, whites vs. minorities; with the whites ruling. There are very few hispanic teachers at the school. Bullying has become a huge issue, and again, the Super hasn't been effective, even allowing and encouraging bullying among the parents. Teachers aren't paid as much as other schools, so teacher retention is a serious problem. If you get one of the experienced good long-term teachers, then your child will have a very good experience. If the teacher's not good, then you're on your own.

My kids have been complaining from 1st grade & still are.They are now at upper campus.Teachers,the ones that LOVE their job are amazing & truly gifted, my kids in return do very well in their classes.They come home excited & talking.Now for the bad news I rated 1 star because the BAD out weighs the good!My kids have always complained about the paid aids.When asked for help they were told to work it out.As you could imagine this led to problems, yet they would go out of there way to help others.While this school has gone through many overall changes,which have effected my kids & others in such a negative way(ex. playground).Really how could it not??When problems arise,I got the feeling of just tell this person what they want to hear to get me to go away, of course problems kept coming up.#1 Do not go to this school! But if it is your only choice it would be good if you are involved or know someone who is working there or is a volunteer.If you have money and donate no problem.Any patterns stick out?Food for thought since one of my kids was in 2nd grade every year the school keeps losing students even 1/2 through the year to other schools close by. This school is rated 7 out of 10=bad

Solvang schools has to be one of the best schools I have heard of here in the valley, the teachers really care, and to me that seems to be important. There are many activities for students to participate in and field trips that keep childrens attention.
