Excellent staff, programs and families. Our two sons have had a great experience. Highly recommended!
Ponderosa has a great principal who brings excellent values to the school. The teacher and staff are great and it feels more like a community here. PTA is active which to me is very necessary for a school to be successful.
I LOVE Ponderosa!! The teacher's & principal & staff are awesome!! But most of ALL we have a wonderful group of hard working parents. Go Panther's
Such a great school, I cannot say enough about it. It starts with teaching them to value Being Kind, Safe, Respect People &amp;amp; Property and Do your very best. Once they get to middle school you can tell who went to Ponderosa - they've got the rules set. The principal and her staff create a very welcoming environment, and with over 400 students she still remembers families names. PTA is very active and there's a sense of family spirit. I look forward to the 1st day of school because you form such a bond with the parents of your children's classmates. We all wish Ponderosa was K-8, unfortunately our children eventually have to move onto middle school.
Ponderosa provides an excellent learning environment. The friendships are superior and as a Ponderosa student you are a part of a giant family.
Great Teachers! Great Principal! Fantastic school! I love Ponderosa!
It's a great school for my 2 children they both accelerate on math and english
I am very happy with Ponderosa Elementary School. The teachers care about their students & encourage parent involvement. The Principal seems to have a genuine interest in each students success academically & emotionally. I have met wonderful parents & students alike at Ponderosa & I am proud to say that my daughter attends Ponderosa.
I chose to send my son to Ponderosa and I'm very happy with my choice.
My son was very happy at Ponderosa Elementary in South San Francisco. The teachers are caring, hard-working, creative and easy to talk to. The school provides a nuturing and loving environment. The faculty make every effort to bring out the best in your child.
So far I've had a great experience with Ponderosa Elementary. The parent support is outstanding and the teachers are very dedicated. The office staff and principal are top notch! Mrs. Ingersoll personally knows each and every student's name which gives a great sense of belonging to the community.
