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.
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.
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.
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.
