Padan is one of the few elementary schools in Vacaville where students and parents alike will get an immediate sense of family. The staff at Padan is one of the most cohesive and hard working staffs in Solano County. Everyone at Padan cares about the whole child, not just the scores they can produce. From the Principal all the way to the Custodian, you will not find a more caring, concerned, and committed group who strive for student excellence than Padan.
There is a lot of diversity at Padan school which I love. Two of my kids were advanced proficient on the standardized test and one was having a tough time with reading, because of the extra money this school receives for academic improvement my son was given extra help and is doing so much better!
This school is mediocre at best. My child has been here since kindergarten and as each year passes i become more and more discouraged. Not a well organized school - NO PHYSICAL EDUCATION - Poor test scores. My child was in 4th grade last year and we had to ASK for homework. Overall I am very dissatisfied - it seems this school has decided to lower the educational standards in order to cater to the families who don't speak English, don't support education or physical activities. Very sad that we have lowered our standards to that magnitude! :(
Padan is a all around wonderful school....We moved from the area to Fairfield and moved right back just so our son could contuine going to school here:) Great, Caring and Loving staff..Now a days it is hard to find teachers who really care to most it is just a job but they ALL truely care here.
