I absolutely love this school for my child. He has been there since Kinder. My son started school at 4 1/2 his bithday cut off made it we were concerned at first because he was on the young side 2 months shy of being 5 but Mrs. Gillispie was fantastic! He excelled with all academics. 1st grade Mrs. Binge, 2nd grade Mrs. Renner and now 3rd grade with Mrs. Kuskie my son's reading has improved tremendously and his spelling and math skills are awesome. Between the teachers and what we are doing at home my son is on the right track for another success year. The parent workshops are so instrumental in helping us with homework. Thank you Tustin Ranch Staff & PTA :)

Not really impressed with this school, the teachers play favorite's with kids based on the parents classroom/financial participation. The teachers/staff team up quickly. Honestly I felt like my kids had a better education and opportunity in lower socioeconomic neighborhood schools. Why? The teachers were more equipped to TEACH kids of a diverse academic background. Here, in my opinion, if the teacher encounters difficulties with a student, she sugar coats the progress then, passes the problem on to the next teacher. When a parents asks for help or clarification, nothing but the run around is given and wasted time .

Have 3 kids at this school with my oldest now moving on to middle school. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The teachers are great, the school is kept up nice, they have a great PTA which allows the students to benefit through programs and assembles. Has a great running club program. The teachers, kids and parents make you feel like you are part of a large family.

I am extremely happy with this school. The principal Mr. Jennings is always walking the grounds and is always available and attentive to any questions or concerns I may have. The teachers are compassionate. The parents are always involved with homeroom parties and other fun activists.

We love Tustin Ranch Teachers and principle! My son is now finishing 2nd grade and his had the most amazing and caring teachers since Kindergarden. The Principle and teachers have always been very helpful whenever I had a situation with my son. My older son also went to TR and had the best experience! We are very lucky to have our son in this school!! Go Cool Cayotes

The past principal was not liked, hope the new one does better. Too much emphasis is placed on the state tests, and some teachers admit it.

My son has attended TR for the last 3 years. It is a great close-knit school. He has had wonderful teachers! He leaves next year for Pioneer, but my youngest will be attending around 2009.

This was my child's first year at Tustin Ranch. I was quite pleased with the teacher and the caring environment. I do believe she is being challenged and motivated. The principal is full of energy and seems to enjoy the children.
