My daughter has attended this school for the past 3 years. I am very pleased with the staff. Lomitas was my former Elementary school when it first opened. Most of the same staff members are still there and my daughter was fortunate enough to have had the same teacher I did when I attended. Yes the area around the school has changed but the integrity of the staff and their teaching ability are of the highest standards. This school takes pride in education and making sure each student is receiving the information taught correctly. I would recommend this school and their staff to anyone out there!

I am the parent of a first grader and kindergartener and I was very disappointed in the first grade teacher my daughter was assigned. I received little to no communication and my daughter was doing exactly what she had learned in kindergarten and started to hate going to school and when I tried to communicate with the teacher I either got brushed aside or got no response. The Kindergarten experience was completely different. They were helpful and informative and seemed to care how my child was doing, I was sad to pull her out of their class but I wanted both of my children to succeed and at the same school.

I was wary about this school because of the area and neighborhoods surrounding it, however I am very please with how my Kindergartener has been educated. They teach the students well and encourage parent involvement. The only problems I've encountered are due to the other students in her class, and some of the parents are bad influences. You can't do anything about that, unfortunately. I'll keep her there for 1st grade.

Im a former student from lomitas. this is a great school.Teachers are not mean to students.They are only rude to parents sometimes because parents can be hardheads like these parents leaving comments now.Parents are very closed minded sometimes.Most parents pull there students out of school when something happens.they dont give the school a chance.this is a great school and i would send my kids here.=]

I was a former student at Lomitas and i loved it. Parents........the only reason why the teachers are rude because the kids misbehave. The teachers are trying to help the students not hurt them. So parents i know its your opinon but the teachers are helpers not the ones who are rude every minute. Go LEOPARDS

I also agree with the last comment posted in June 2010. I also want to comment that disciplinary action needs to be reinforced and can possibly use some retraining to adequately give appropriate consequence each child. Simply suspending a child and not guiding them to make better choices is not an affective way of instilling disciplinary action. Children are deprived of their education when situations as suspension are harshly imposed. In addition calling parents to pickup students because they just don't feel good is not acceptable. I have noticed that when there is about 1-2 hours left of school parents are called to pickup students for a child simply having a scratch and not wanting to be in school.

I find the staff to be rude and basically tell you whatever they need to to get paid and move forward with their day. My daugter was attacked by another student and it took 2 weeks before they moved on it due to their own personal issues. Also the teachers arent very friendly and do not work with the parents to create a positive learning environment. The cafeteria staff like to yell at the children while they eat and herd them like cattle. I have repeatedly watched teachers yell at the children and parents in some cases. I have found this school to not live up to all the hype they make it out to be.

I love Lomitas because it has been my 'school family' for the last 7 years. I love all of the caring staff who truly care about and love our kids. The teachers and staff are always very approachable and available to talk, and are positive and encouraging to our kids. Lomitas is great because it strives also to teach our kids about character, about being decent, good, and honest human beings of character, kids who will grow up some day to be hard working people who will make many positive contributions to society. Our awesome office staff are smiling faces that greet you when you first enter our school and take care of our kids when they need help up in the office. Thank you Lomitas for continuing to be a great place for my kids to learn and grow!

I love the P.T.A. !! I love the caring teachers who really teach each child and I love the principal and the S.A.M. who greet us each and every day..they are approachable and encourage parent involvement. I also love the playground which offers many choices for activities! The school has many enriching programs that other schools do not offer. Thank you Lomitas, my children have never been happier anywhere else!!

My children were new to this school mid-year, and although I was hesitant to send them here because of the score and coments, I must say that in general the school was better than ok. Although Ifeel that some teachers are just doing what they have to to get paid, some teachers are truly supportive and seem to really care, such as my daughter's 4th grade teachers, Mrs. Blubaugh and Mrs. Brendon, and my other daughter's 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Hearell. I think that communication with parents when incidents occurred was delayed, and should be more prompt, and there should be more opportunities for parents who work or have small children to assist. If not by going to the school then by doing things for the classrooms at home and sending with their children to the school.

This diamond of a school really cares about every child. Children have high expectations set for them in academics and behavior. This is a great school!

I know this website is for 'Great Schools' but please do not be mislead. There are other opinions that should be heard. As long as your student is socially perfect, you will have issues here. I do not feel that the staff is friendly or helpful. In fact I think they are rude and intrusive!!

In my opinion this is a school that teaches by example not by mouth! they (the staff and principle) really care about the children! most importantly they care that the children exceed, because when they do than the whole school benefits!

The best school that happened to my 4th and2nd graders. The teachers are understanding to every student's need, and the principle is very supportive of both. At any time I could freely speak to the teachers and to the principle. As much as my children hate school they really enjoyed Lomitas. Thank you Lomitas

Lomitas is by far the best elementary school in Victorville. A three time California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School, Lomitas is committed to excellence. The staff and parents are relentless in helping all children learn. The staff maintains high expectations and standards for both students and parents.

Great school for all ages. The teachers are wonderful. They have a reading program called Reading counts and the PTA gives out prizes for each time you reach an interval of 50.

My two children attended Lomitas for 2 years. I was very pleased with the school, staff and teachers. My son was in Mrs Greenes 1st grade class, and he loverd her so very much. He was very sad when we had to move out of state. My daughter was in Mrs Conklys 4th grade class. She loved her so much that she has decided to become an elementary teacher. I had the chance to room parent for both teachers and really felt so very appreciated by the teachers, and all the staff. Thank you for being such a great school. C. Meadows

My son has been a student at Lomitas now for the past 3yrs. He is now in the 4th grade. We moved to the high desert area in 2001 from L.A. His second grade experience was a very wonderful one. He was in Mrs. Pitenaro's (I hope I spelled it right) class. She had a very strong impact on him and to this day he goes and visits and consults with her often. This school has been very influential on him and has helped him be a better student. It is a national blue ribbon school. I can't wait for my daughter to start this fall in kindergarten.

My children began attending Lomitas Elementary School in October of 2003. We moved from one school within the same district to Lomitas. I was surprised and delighted to find that Lomitas offered many more extracurricular activities i.e. field trips, physical education, art and language instruction as well as great general education instruction. The office staff is courteous and the teachers are great. Thanks for a great transition!

I am not a parent of a student that attends here, but I used to. About 7 years ago, it was my last year at Lomitas. All of the teachers were great and I had a fun time being there. It is a very good school and I recomend the school to my friends whom are married and have lil' ones on the way.

Our son just finished Kindergarten with Mr Young (K-100). All of the kids learned a Lot, they did science experiments, went on fun field trips, have had good discipline, and they all respect and adore Mr Young. He has made a very Positive impact on these children's early school career. Our son has made some very nice friends at this school and has participated in many school activities as well as friends' birthday parties, etc. All of the kids have a fun and happy outlook. Lomitas is a very clean school, has a Large parking lot (which is Rare these days!), and is Right NEXT DOOR to a Fire Station! The firefighters come to help out Every day! Assisting students crossing the roads, helping to supervise bus loading/unloading, etc. Lomitas is centrally located in the high desert on a quiet residential street just off Hesperia Rd near Vons grocery store in Victorville. CHP officers with radar guns actively punish any and all speeders on a weekly basis. So motorists know to drive Slow around This school! My wife and I really like Lomitas Elementary; we wish more schools were like this one.
