Parrticipation of parents is important. There are plenty of extracurricular activities, specially in music and art. The Teachers are very caring.
Allamanda Elementary has a wonderful program for special needs students, specifically at the kindergarten level. Our son has benefitted greatly from the reassuring, kind and friendly staff who work with him. Class size is reasonably small so students can get individualized attention and care. Focus on educational abilities is addressed to meet the needs of each student and our son has a good balance of class work and homework. Communication between the teachers and parents is encouraged and welcome - so essential when your child cannot fully express his or her daily activities to you. In short, we are very impressed and satisfied with our experience at Allamanda and grateful to have had the recommendation for our son. The rest of the student body seems happy and involved as well and much like the teachers we have seen, the office staff is friendly and helpful.
My daughter attended Allamanda kindergarden through the sixth grade. It was a wonderful experience for her and put her on a good path for middle and high school. The staff and teachers were very helpful and professional. The school is in a beautiful and a safe community. Sincerely, Lara Courts
My son graduated from Allamanda Elementary this past year and I am sorry that he has to move on. I wish this school had grades through 12! The teachers are wonderful, the administration keeps on top of everything and they keep the parents informed and involved. The studies are well developed and integrate fun with the learning process to keep kids involved academically. Fairly good music and art programs, could use a little help with the sports area. Parents are kept informed through letters and meetings and the PTO. I am going to miss having my son attend Allamanda.
This year was our child's 1st at Allamanda and the 1st grade staff is awesome. The growth in our child's reading capability has expanded much more than we could ever expect. The staff is great. Everyone is caring.
Allamanda is a wonderful school. The teachers and administrative staff are all very empathetic and well-trained. They have an outstanding ESE program. Music, art and PE are all available, as is a beautiful Nature Sanctuary. There is a high level of parent involvement at Allamanda. The atmosphere is very safe and yet also inviting.
My son has attended this school since kindergarten. He had many problems w/ his first teacher and I had to change teachers. The second 'K' teacher was phenominal! Since 'K' I had put in requests for occupational therapy, and to get an IEP put in place for my son. He is going into the 4th grade this year and 3/4's thru the 3rd grade year is when they finally got my son into the programs that he has needed since kindergarten. I am very concerned about my son's education and I worry that due to the school taking so long to process needed requests that it is going to set him back. He should have had the help requested years ago and they just now started to help my child. I felt like I was running into a brick wall and getting nowhere. I just wish they showed more concern.
