Our family loves Luiseno! This was our first year here and we were blown away by the spirit at this school. The principal, Mr. Dignan, is such a huge presence on campus. I love that I see him out on campus with the kids and teachers all the time. My children were in the second and fifth grades this year and they both absolutely loved their teachers. I was privileged to be able to volunteer in the classroom and have seen first hand how caring and wonderful the teachers are with their students. The whole school has a wonderful positive feel of students, teachers, administration, and parents working together to achieve excellent results. The PTA is amazing as well and put on several events that were great. My children both learned so much. I feel it was an excellent year of growth.

TLES has been a great school for my two youngest boys. We put in for a intra-district transfer before they started Kindergarten and it was the best decision we've ever made. For starters the staff is amazing, both in the classroom and the front office. In addition, I've been a parent volunteer in the classroom for 6 years and I've seen first hand how hard the teachers work to help the kids that are struggling as well as challenge those who are ready for more. They treat all their students the same and clearly enjoy their work which is an important aspect of teaching. I just want to add that Mrs. Albertoni, a second grade teacher at TLES should be awarded teacher of the year every year, she is that outstanding.

I have one child at this school and another in private. What a huge difference! Public school is definitely behind. Spend one day volunteering at this school and you will be shocked! So many kids that lack respect and discipline!! I agree with another reviewer, there are many children with special needs in the classroom that are disruptive. Teachers and staff are NOT CPR trained. When I asked why, Principal said that they are not required by law. Homework is a joke. The students are given a list and they are to pick one assignment to do each day, but it's the same list for the whole semester. Homework doesn't pertain to the work they did that day. With a 1000 kids in the school, how can they safely evacuate in case of an emergency? With 28 students per class how can your child learn, especially with multiple disruptions in the classroom? Pick up and drop off are a nightmare.

Horribly overcrowded classes and way too many kids at this elementary school. Kids are overwhelmed and it is just not good for little children to have over 1000+ kids in their school. Loud loud loud try going to lunch with your child you cannot hear a thing. Pta members seem to get the job openings for duties and aids. Many noon duties are rude miserable and do not appear to like children. Classes are overcrowded and many have students with special needs. These kids are allowed to do whatever they want. Kids scream disrupt the other kids they are not removed it is completely unbelievable. If your kid is not diagnosed with something but is struggling good luck getting needed help. Teachers are too overwhelmed already with way too many kids in their classes. There are some incredible teachers there but school has gone downhill. Too too big no sense of community or belonging and every year because there are so many kids your kids will not even have a single friend in class with them. Not a healthy situation at all Kids feel like they changed schools every year because they know noone. It is crazy.

An amazing school with wonderful parent involvement. Dads are encouraged to be "Watch D.O.G.S.," which stands for "Dads of Great Students," and participate in the classroom and on the playgrounds. The kids LOVE it. The principle and teachers are so good at what they do on an ever shrinking budget. So many of the teachers DONATE their time before and after school to keep unfunded programs going like Running Club, Chorus and Art, often arriving hours early and staying late into the evening. Children are taught Character Traits in a monthly program, and the on-campus and off-campus field trips really enrich their learning. I so appreciate their dedication to every level of learner. I can see how much they love our children and their careers.

This is my daughters 2nd year and i am so pleased to have her going there. we came from san diego and i was really happy with the school we were at btu i love this school sooooo much more. I volunteer once a week and i see how many people / parents volunteer and it makes a huge difference and its also nice to see parents care for how their children are doing in school. My child is not the easy kid in the class and i know that but they are all soooo patient with her and im so grateful for that. This is an awesome school!

The principal at this school is doing an amazing job. She cares and goes above and beyond in bringing quality programs to this school. She is very progressive, kind, and hard working. Talk to her, I am sure she'll listen.

I question leadership when safety becomes a concern. Although they allow parental volunteering, I question just how much this extends to the classroom. How is it that a school allows parental volunteering refuses the suggests or direct in which a child is educated. I am disappointed that the leadership, staff, and certificated personnel do not allow and refuse input in the way a child is educated.

I agree that the school is great, the first grade teacher Mrs Sutten is wonderful. But the end of day chaos is scary. They let the kids loose with little supervision. My daughter often says that the kids are not well supervised at recess either. She has hurt herself doing flips on the monkey bars several times.... The school is new, so it may take so;e time to get organized.

My son was in 4th grade last year and did great thanks to his incredible teacher, Ms. Stanard. What I love most about this school is how hard the principal and staff work to make every student feel safe. The kids are encouraged to give each other compliments and be kind---bullies are NOT tolerated at all. My son joined every club and was in the talent show--and he's not a very socially comfortable kid. Thanks to the staff and principal, he excelled not only academically, but socially. GREAT school!

Achedemically, I love this school. My daughter is in first grade and she loves it. She has learned so much, and they welcome parental volunteers. However, I do believe their school safety could be very much improved. When I pick her up at school, its like a cattle drive. No one makes an effort to release children to their family members. They are just set loose at the end of the day. There also have been instances where my daughter was roughed up at recess because they let all the children (Kindergarten excluded) out at recess at once and appear to only have 2 or 3 responsible adults for a playground with 500 children. This school is a new school, so I understand they are still working out the kinks. I just hope they work them out soon.
