My daughter just started 4th.grade with Mrs.Jones and Mr.Leon. Even though She's having some problems with some homework (writing)she is getting better. Mr.Leon has been extremely great and patient with her. Mrs.Jones as far as I know is been really good. Last year my daughter's teacher was Mrs.Grace Gonzales and I was really happy with her job. She made my daughter tried her best in everything she had to do and my daughter did. I am really happy with this school,I know some moms that complain a lot about the percentage that the teachers require to get an A (my daughter got 95% in a writing essay and got a B, this made a mom really unhappy) but I think that if the teachers require more from the kids,the kids eventually will arise to their expectations. I really want my 2 other kids to go to this school. Ana,their receptionist is the nicest person you'll ever meet.
My children have attended PSN Elementary for 3/4 years. I have no complaints. It is an outstanding school in a wonderful very family oriented community. Keep up the great work!
Great school, many extracurricular activities, such as ballet, music, languages.
I have mixed emotions about the school since I have 2 children at different levels. My daughter, who entered 4th grade only made it through the first day. Although there was to be 26 children in the classroom, we found that because of space limitation they forced 2 class rooms in the music room with 2 teachers, each teaching different subjects. There is NO way that a child can optimize their education in classroom where they can not see the boards, barely hear the teachers. On the other hand, i found the Kindergarten having a much better set up. Although a bit crowded for this grade level, I found the teachers to be more cooperative with the children, specially my 5 year old, who needed the extra attention. Thank YOU Mrs. Mahoy and Ms. Fernandez.
This school after first grade don't have a individual ESOL program, the student with ESOL level 2,4,5 or English speakers going together in the same class and they don't use the specific strategies for this type of children.
The school does not not provide 'After school tutoring programs' for kids that are below average. Also, there reading programs are not helping kids with reading problems.
This school has done nothing but try to intimidate my daughter into fear. For the last 3 yrs of her attendance, the first day of class has always been a massive confusion and she has never been placed in the correct class. If your child complains about his/her teacher, listen. Trust in your child. These are your children!
This school was a Blue Ribbon School and has achieved an 'A' rating for 3 out of the 5 years. The Principal is very week weak and one of the major areas of opportunity. Dr. Hurns who left for bob Graham hurt the school by take some of the top teachers with her. The art, sports ans extracurricalr activites are light. parent involvement is average to above average. Overall, school is making strides to regain status it once had when Dr. Hurns was at the Helm.
The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. Mys son's teacer Mrs. Del La Vega was a great example of what a teacher should be and I will miss her very much. Thank you Palm Springs for bringing out the best in my child and giving him the encouragement and confidence he needs to continue with his education.
My daughter attends Palm Springs elementary. I have nothing but great remarks about the teachers and staff. I would greatly recommend this school to any parent who takes their childs academic standards serious.
