I went here back in late 70's and finished 6th grade in 84'. Mr Best was the principle and he wore some cool shoes. Wonder if they still do the week long camping trip at the end of the 6th year for kids. I remember it was up in the mountains but don't recall where exactly. I miss riding my bike on the bike trail and picking pomegranets and there used to be a buffalo farm around there. I'm Chris Rose (McCullough back then) buddies were Richard Sell and Robbie Douglas and Tim Cantu and LeeAnn Boyd and Amy Lynn (LOVE YOU LEEANN AND AMY)....YLP.. Miss Woodinghill and Miss Jermaine....miss you all.
This school is extraordinary. The principal Dr. Adamson stands out front every morning and joyfully welcomes students as they arrive, many of whose names she has committed to memory. The office staff is kind and welcoming, and though my daughter has only had one teacher so far, Mrs. Rogers, her experience with this amazing teacher has been transformative. We are humbled and thankful for the care that the staff has given to my child. I can't recommend this great school enough.
My daughter was transferred from a private school on 3rd grade. As a parent, I feel the school is excellent. My daught loves it too. It is a small school, but teachers are caring, experienced and due dilligent. The new principal is professional, warm and caring. The teachers group the kids to different levels on math and reading, so each child get challenged. I'm very glad to switch the school.
I went to this school when I was a child and now my children go/have gone there. It is small compared to others in the area but I think that's a good thing. The staff seem very dedicated to inspiring the kids to higher achievement. My oldest (who is now an honors student in middle school) was very well prepared for the transition. My youngest is now having the same experience. .. She has different teachers for different subjects which allows teachers to focus on a particular discipline. The PTA is very involved and does a wonderful job of supporting the staff and providing other kinds of enrichment. I can highly recommend this school!!
I went to that school back in the day... I am a sophomore in the high desert now but I will truly miss Yorba Linda and this school. I had lots of good memories at that school like the nice greenery and fun playground, I love the fact that they encouraged hands-on learning. I believe they still have those big trees (I use to play under them:)) I also remember walking with my parents after school through the little path way of Orange Trees close by. I promise your child will have great memories at this school, I surely did!
I love this school - but the principle is not good. She is cold and caters to children who misbehave. I am thinking about pulling my child. Mr. Fredstrom is a teacher with amazing skill building abilities... he would be missed for my child's 5th year of education.
I think that this school is one of the best. I feel a sense of belonging and my children love it. It is a small school and that is one of the reasons I like it so much. I feel that my children get the attention that they deserve. I think that the teachers at this school are always looking for ways to improve on helping the children get a better education. Also, the PTA is very committed to make sure our children get the best education possible. I hope that in the years to come this school keeps doing the wonderful job that it has done so far. Thank you!!!!!
We debated between public and private school for our child. We could not be more pleased with choosing Rose Drive Elementary school! The teachers and staff are amazing! Our child has blossomed in her education and is thrilled to go to school each day.
This a GREAT school!! We have a family-type closeness that we treasure :) We have really enjoyed the experience here and are looking forward to our last 3 years! The teachers are passionate about their work and have an active interest in their students' progress and interests. The staff works closely with the PTA to ensure that the students are always top priority!
This is such a wonderful school. Great teachers! The PTA is awesome. I am very happy for the education my child recieves from this school
Seems small. The content of the homework is low. The teachers do not seem to care if the child is not working at grade level. They don't seem to care if the child can't keep up. It wont be their problem at the end of the year. It will be next years teachers problem.
This is a wonderful, small neighborhood school. The staff is terrific. The curriculum is enriched. The school has a wonderful after school experiences available also.
I love this school! The teachers and staff are awesome! They have a lot of great programs for the kids and the pta always goes out of their way for the kids!
I am so pleased that my children have the opportunity to go to such a wonderful school. Because it is such a small school the children are treated like kids not just a number. The kids feel special each day because the teachers & staff are so wonderful all the way around.
We have a new Principal now & there have been some great improvements! We had our first Holiday Program this past Dec. 2006. Hard working, dedicated PTA members did an outstanding job on the book fair. Quarterly award ceremonies for children who earn an award. Children participated in a canned food drive and toy drive this past Dec. The teachers & students are loaded down with the curriculum, but that doesn't stop the PTA from putting on assemblies (Science, Differently Abled, Meet the Masters (art)). I am very pleased with Rose Drive Elementary.
