Bullying is an overlooked issue at this school no matter the severity of the bullying. Students are fighting or tormenting others and the new principal sweeps it under the rug in hopes it will fade away. The Pta tries but the parent involvement is low. It picked up this year but there were some people who would make first timers uncomfortable. I witnessed a mom yelling at the office staff. There is very little to no teacher spiritin school activities. 2015/16 school year will be interesting especially with the new not quite nice PTA president. The new principal has A LOT of work to do to make everyone feel welcome, parents and students.

Kindergarten and 5th grade are amazing!! The first grade teachers do a good job of teaching the kids tobe responsible.

It is all about test scores. Be an involved parent or your student will be ignored. Getting to know the names of the students makes them feel important. Very few teachers take the time to do this. The 5th grade and TK teachers are exempt. They are amazing!!

They do not encourage the students to support each other. There are no consequences for those students that violate the rights of their fellow classmates.

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.
