We have been at Sonoma for a little over a year. There is a mixed bag of devoted teachers and you take gamble each year on who your child will have. My son had a horrible 2nd grade year and did not get the services he needed in the regular ed classroom and teacher was unwilling to give him the individual attention he needed, recommended he be retained. His 3rd grade teacher is fabulous and has given him everything he needs. The new principal is very nice and is much more structured when it comes to bullying. This is an improvement considering my other son was bullied for a whole year and the teacher asked for help and did not get it until the last few months of school. They have a wonderful Take Flight reading program for kids struggling and their Kinder teachers are great. Just talk to other parents and make sure your child does not lose a whole year of learning with a bad teacher.

My grandchildren go to Sonoma Elementary. The staff is very involved and the security at the school is tremendous. I don't have to worry that someone will take any of my grandchildren or other children out the doors. My only concern is for the children who are not up to speed with the rest of the class and the only feedback I get is they will need to be held back. All children are different and learn at different speeds. Their needs need to be met in some way. The school counselor has been a great help and is very knowledgeable and caring. She would get my staff person of the year award if there is one.

We moved here from a highly rated school district. After seeing how many elementary schools were rated in Las Cruces, we were concerned. However, we started at Sonoma during my son's kinder year, and it has been a great school. We realize that ratings only tell part of the story. The school has a great staff and a fantastic prinicpal. My son has done well and has been challenged. We are amazed at how much the teachers do for these kids on a regular basis. A school is only as good as the amount of time the parents dedicate to following through on assignments and making sure the kids are on the right path. Anyone who thinks you send them to school and that's it will not see much success.

Sonoma is a great school. We love it and its great and supportive staff and principal. Parents are not as involved but considering how new it is, the PTO is doing a great job druming up interest.
