I have only gone to Acequia Madre elementary school for two years. It was an ok school. I didn't care for it that much. It has a good math program and a cool science program but kids there can be very very rude. There is some bullying at times even if you tell on a kid there for bullying and then they talk to that kid, that kid will do it again and again and almost no change will happen. They have these things called trouble tickets that they enforced in the 2011-2012 school year they are not improving the behavior of children there at all! And there is one teacher that was very rude to some of the kids there for absoutely no reason. She teased a group of 6th graders because their teacher didn't want to let them in from outside just yet. And the librarian at Acequia Madre is very rude. Acedemically the school is amazing and can acheive to greater hights but needs to work on the behavior of the children that attend and the politeness of some of the teachers.
My daughter is only in Kindergarten but she attended Pre-K at El Dorado as well and has loved school since the minute she walked through the doors. The teaching staff is skilled and responsive. There is a wonderful sense of community. The leadership is excellent and the PTA is very active.
