I am completely unsatisfied with the leadership of this school and the pressure that is put on the children.
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.
Absolutely love this school! My son is a kindergartner and his teacher Mrs. Gillispie is fantasic I can't believe how much my son has already learned. His reading skills has greatly improved. I try to volunteer in class as much as my job will allow it's great to be involved. I also attend every PTA meeting and it's great to get the kinder's involved in the activities. Mr. Jennings is awesome he's always involved in daily activities. Looking forward to the next 5 yrs.
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
I really love this school. My son is a kindergartener in this school and we are very happy with the teachers, the staff and specially the principal, Mr. Jennings. The principal is one of the best in TUSD.
I love this school! My son had a horrible experience at Guin foss so I transferred him to Tustin Ranch. I have to say the teachers are amazing, the campus is beautiful, the Principal is the best too! I can't say enough really! My son is in the gate classes and is very happy here. My daughter is in Kindergarden and she adores her Teacher. My family and I are very lucky. Love love this school. Mrs. Granger is the greatest teacher my son has had. The parent involvement is ideal =)
Enouraging and empowering childhood learning experiences going on every day! All the staff, teachers and parents worked really well together each year to create a healthy environment for the kids to want to be involved. Very proud to say this is our school!
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 school is very intune with the kids needs and challenges the kids to keep them interested. My children have enjoyed the Jr. Great Books program and Meet the Masters. Teachers are very involved and available.
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.
Great faculty! Lots of parent teacher involvement, I am really happy with the quality of education and extracurricular activities. One of the best schools in Tustin!
