My son has been going to Podesta for almost 6 years and loves it here. His teachers and principal have been wonderful and supportive. The PTA is strong and puts together great events. Last years Harvest Fest was the best! We are really going to miss this school when he goes off to 7th grade this year.
The teachers are great! The school has a great PTA. They are a very organized school.
Good staff,great principal & the pta is greatly involved! My kids love their school which makes it fun & more enjoyable for them to learn!
This is my daughters 2nd year at Podesta Ranch coming from a private school. It's not true that you get what you pay for. We were paying almost $500.00 in tuition when we switched to Podesta Ranch. Sadly and unknown to us that our daughter was behind and the wonderful teachers at this school had to catch her up to where she should be. Awesome school!
Our daughter has gone to this school for the last two years and we absolutely love it! It is a small school and we feel she gets great one on one attention from her teachers each year. We could not be happier with this Podesta Ranch Elementary!
Podesta Ranch School is AWESOME, we really do have the best staff in our community
When walking on to the Podesta Ranch campus you can feel the good energy radiating from the classrooms. My daughter will be part of the first class to attend from kindergarten to sixth grade, since opening. We are so pleased with the school, and feel like we are part of a family, we are sad she only has one more year before going to middle school. There are truly some superstar teachers at Podesta Ranch, creating an exciting yet challenging culture for students. PTA is active and visible. The principal has built a great team, including a new vice principal this year. Podesta...our school rocks!!
This school has an amazing community. Every parent is involved in some way of the students lives. The teachers are always doing something extra for their kids even when its on their own time
Our school is great! Have four kids that attend here and there is a wonderful sense of community. Principal and staff are really amazing and work very hard for our kids. We have been hit hard with all cutbacks but we have a hard working PTA that really strives to fill in the blanks.
Podesta Ranch school is a farily new school (6th year open). We had the unfortunate luck to open right at the same time that the recession started. This left our school with minimal resources and still the families, the community, and staff have all rallied together to make PODESTA RANCH a great learning enviroment for our students. I can not say enough good things about Podesta Ranch. I feel that my children are trully lucky to be a part of such an amazing school.
This is a great school - principal is hands on, teachers are great. I am sorry that this is my daughters last year and we will miss it when she moves on to middle school.
It is one of the best schools. There's a really friendly environment and the principal is doing an excellent job. The parents are really involved with the school.
Unlike many area schools which have 800+ students, Podesta Ranch feels like a small community school. The dedicated principal, teachers, and staff work tirelessly to make this a great school! The principal continues to show tremendous leadership through these turbulent times. The PTA prioritizes enhanced academic opportunities for students funding two academic computer programs. And I love that the school emphasizes good character rewarding students each quarter who exhibit good citizenship, respect, etc. Red Tail Hawks...Our School Rocks!
Great school! Fabulous Principal. It is still small so parents can make a difference.
