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.

I have been a parent and volunteer at Acequia Madre for six years now. The quality of the teachers and principal combined with the emphasis on social-emotional growth makes this school very special.

This school has a wonderful caring teaching staff and the principle is accessable and responsive while remaining commited to the big picture. The art, science, math and litteracy curiculums are integrated in ways that reach children with diverse learning styles. The parents are commited and pasionate participants in making this school a great learning environment.

From an academic, music and art perspective, Acequia Madre is tops. There is tremendous parent involvement and a real team approach by parents and teachers to issues now facing the school. I have learned from the school as well and really support the direction it is taking. Beverly Garcia

More parental involovement than any other school in the district results in much higher quality of education for students. The kids are given opportunities at AM to experience art and music that would be unavailable to them in any other school in town. All schools should provide P.E., but the sad fact is that they don't. This school does, in addition to unparalleled music instruction and weekly art classes. I drive my child across town every morning, estatically happy that we got an interzone transfer to this wonderful school. The only thing that might improve this school would be the addition af a school-wide Spanish program, which was available last year but not this year.
