Our new principal is beyond amazing!! We have been at Abby Reinke for 6 years with 6 more to go and it is amazing to see the mood and attitude of everyone at this school change for the better under the new leadership of Mr. Cole! So much positivity and fun has been brought back to our beloved neighborhood school. Couldn't be happier!!

We have been at ARES for 5 yrs. We have seen great success with both of our children. I give whatever time I can to be involved. The PTA is a great supporter of the school for positive success. The teachers are creating a place of academic achievement and integrating a core curriculum in order to help our children be their best everyday. As a community we are lucky to have a school where our children can practice educational freedom of thoughts and grow in practicality. Get involved to make a difference in your child's future. Don't leave it up to others.

I would give it a zero but it doesn't give the option. Principle has poor manners and makes for parents to feel uncomfortable and she continues to belittle parents.

This is our first year at this school, I have a Kindergartner and a 2nd grader. While the Kinder program is going great, the 2nd grade is not. Bullying is not addressed at this school only retaliation to bulling. The staff uses the ignore and avoid tactic which is HIGHLY ineffective. The principle doesn't not want the kids to learn how to socially interact just to avoid when problems arise. I do not like the policies of this school at all, small issues are blown out of proportion while the underlying problem is totally ignored. Parent concerns are met with cold condescending remarks by the principle, and then left unaddressed. Overall I think this school has potential to be great again, as long as they get rid of the current leadership.

Abby Reinke used to be a great school. A change of leadership has caused this school to plummet. The teachers are no longer excited to teach and just do the minimum they have to. The principal treats teachers, students, and parents as inconvenient parts to her job. After 6 yrs here, I had to do what was best for my children and leave. They are now getting the education they deserve somewhere else.

When I moved to Temecula from Fallbrook I was scared to put my kinds in public school. I have 3 boys who where all in private school. Abby Reinke was very helpful with my kids transition from private to public school. My oldest son in now in middle school and is an honor roll student . I still have 2 kids currently in Abby Reinke,they love it here. I absolutely love the new principal Ms.Boyd, she has made so many wonderful changes to the school. She has put so many after school program, like golf and also a lot more P.E. Ms.Boyd is a fabulous new addition to a already wonderful staff. I also would like to tell you about Margaret Atkinson she is the office clerk. Margaret is so nice, she great with the kids and treats each student as if they were her own. Abby Reinke has great test scores and the class size are just right, We love Abby Reinke!!!!!!

Our child started Kinder at Abby. Going in he was a very reluctant student. He struggled at first and his teachers in both K and 1st grade have gone out of their way to talk with us and come up with strategies at home to help him succeed. They have been nothing but positive with him even as they had to help "curb" his energy in the classroom. I'm very impressed with the teachers and the principal at the school and the community atmosphere that is encouraged. It's not all about test scores here. It is really about providing a positive atmosphere to learn and succeed in learning.

My 4th grader started school here. She has become such a great reader & confident child. She has come a long way because of all that Abby Reinke has to offer. I believe in the teachers at Abby. They all care very much & want our children to excel!

I have two children at this fabulous school. Yes, there have been a few bumps in the road, but they have always been handled appropriately. The teachers have been FANTASTIC to my kids and each year just gets better! We love the learning atmosphere at Abby Reinke!

My son has attended Abby Reinke for 3 years now, and as far a teachers go, it's a crap shoot. The first year was horrible, 2 teachers - one nice and one mean, the principal actually told me not to bring him to school on the days the mean one was working, luckily, we made it through the year. The next year was great no problems, loved his teacher, and now back in the same boat. He is struggling and he hates his teacher. She has told 3 different moms that their kids must have ADD or a learning disability, and she won't except any responsibility for any wrong doing . I have had an SST meeting, and the teacher blamed it all on me, and attendance. The principal is as cold as ice and dose'nt seem to care about anything other than your childs test scores. She wants to keep her prestigious school status. I have voulenteered, and helped the school with many fundraisers and have gotten nothing but blame for my son not meeting standards. Don't waist your time with this school, they only care about their status, not your childs education, or well being.

We pulled our son out of this school the 4th week of 3rd grade. He is now doing great in a local charter and is being tested for gate. I was very disappointed in Abby.. We loved his 2nd grade teacher and kindergarten. 1st and 3rd were a complete disappointment. I felt I needed to post this information to help others.

Abby is an excellent school. My 2 children have attended Abby for 4 years now and we love it! The teachers are excellent and so is the principal though she has gone to a different school this year and that makes us nervous. The grounds are excellent and so are the safety precautions. One disappointing thing is, due to all he budget cuts, they do not have as many extra curricular activities. We would not have our kids in any other school!

This is my third child to go through Abby. I can't say enough good things about the Principal and Staff. Super caring people. The academics are top notch and the school is run perfectly. I feel that Abby is the #1 school. I know when my son leaves for TMS (Temecula Middle School), he will be very prepared and will do very well. The teachers are Awesome! They really take the time to keep you informed about your child and go that extra mile. Thanks Abby! Barbara

My son started ARES in Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade. I can't say enough about this school! The parent involvement is huge! The commitment and pride of the school staff is noticeably strong! But the most important reason I rate this school so high is because of how happy and content my son has been here. He feels safe, and it is such a big relief to know that once he is out of my care, he is in good hands. He was an advanced reader in Kindergarten, and they picked up on his skill, and allowed him to go to first grade class for reading. We are so appreciative/grateful to have such a wonderful school like ARES for our children to attend. It has been such a great experience and we hope that you consider this school for your child/ren. You will not be disappointed at all!

My son went to Abby Reinke for Kindergarden and I am so impressed with the commitment by teachers and parents alike. I am proud to be a Timberwolf. It would only be improved if it were extended to allow for more subjects and play time.

Amazing school in an amazing neighborhood. I have had two kids attend this school and have loved every teacher so far. Academic excellence, school spirit, teachers and administrators who seem to want to be there and love their jobs. The kids all love it. There are lots of activities to get the kids excited about the school. Great positive reinforcement for the kids also.

My experience at this school was in the special education department. The department was very helpful and extremely supportive with my choices. I felt like I had a voice and I was not treated as though my opinion did not matter. My son did well here and had fun learning with his teacher. They had many resources and it seemed as though they genuinly cared for my son. He never lost his self confidence and was always eager to attend.

The district, admin. staff, and teachers were extremely supportive of our family when my husband deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The school recognized that the students w/ family members overseas needed additional assistance to get through such a difficult transition, and we were grateful for all the additional assistance the teachers and staff provided to us during this period. Abbey Reinke is a great school w/ caring and compassionate teachers and staff.
