This school was satisfactory for the first year my child was enrolled. However, the second year, during the second year the experience was less than adequate. The school has a fundraiser every two weeks that you absolutely must participate in or your child is not treated equally. This is an average of $50-100 monthly just on "donations" and fundraisers. This school does not respect the church and state separation. I was very disappointed with religious symbols in the year book, the Halloween festivities masked as a "Book Parade", and the numerous religious songs in the school recitals, demanding my child to state "under god" in the pledge, and telling him he was drawing devils on his folder. Granted the API is high but the ethics an how they treat their students and the right of those students needs to be taken into consideration.
School is open and anyone can walk in during recess to see your child. The office does not keep track of people coming in and off of the campus. The doors of the classrooms are locked during school hours, but during rest periods there are no gates keeping the students in and other people out.
The school has a great parent, teacher relationship. The parents enjoy participating in school events. The principal is always open to everyone and warm hearted to the students.
My daughter has been attending since Kindergarten and every year keeps getting better. Everyone on the staff, from the principal to the janitorial staff is warm and friendly and puts the kids needs first. The teaching staff does a great job at not only teaching the material, but encouraging the children to strive to be better and to keep learning. You can feel the love for academic all over campus.
Every Mesa staff member go the extra mile for every kid. My son has been in this school since Kindergarden and I have had a perfect teacher-student-parent relationship every year.
A dynamic principal and office staff. This filters down to the staff and students. Keep up the good work.
This is a very good school and teacher care about the kids. Staff is also very understanding whith working parents.
Mesa school has excellent academic programs as well as extracurricular activites. Mesa school also has Deaf and hard of hearing program and I find their program to be excellent. The teachers are wonderful and caring--they have goals for each learners.
The teaching staff was very structured. The kids have a lot, I mean a lot of homework for kindergartens, however, our son improved dramatically because of this. It was actually amazing to see how much our son grew in knowledge and can write a paragraph using describing words and detail of whats on his mind instead of verbally doing it. Good school, great teachers. nice area.
I would like to see more concern with students who are bullied by other students. This should not be taken lightly. Children should want to go to school
