We are very, very pleased with Atalaya. Both of our kids are thriving, thanks to strong leadership and a frankly surprising selection of inspiring teachers. It has a supportive, involved PTA and a diverse group of great kids. Really our only criticism is that it doesn't have 7th and 8th grades. WE DON'T WANT TO LEAVE SO SOON!

The students bring a great mix of different experiences and backgrounds to the school and the kids learn a great deal from each other and all are welcome.

The teachers, leaders and parents are very involved at this school and create a great atmosphere for the kids. The beautiful new building is great but it also represented a significant challenge to make it a thriving school environment. Everyone has worked together to do just that.

Our daughter has been at Atalaya for a few years now and the teachers have always been skilled and committed to the kids. Principal Diaz has come on board and increased the level of collaboration and respect among teachers, staff and parents and brought the school to an even higher level. Thank you.

Atalaya is a great fit for our family, we even choose to drive across town to attend the school. The Principal, the PTA, and the teachers are always available to talk and find resolutions to any problems. I love the parents and the kids in the community, we enjoy the community events and the building and area feels safe. So far our kids are doing well academically and socially. It's a great public school.

This has been a great school for my daughter. She has a learning challange and the principle/teacher/resource team has been great. they allowed our outside tutor to be included in the team. Our new principle is great. He has many years of experience and comes from Acequia Madre also a stellar school.

This school has gone down hill. There has been a high level of turn over regarding principals. Not to mention: My child's second grade teacher, who shall remain unnamed was completely the worst teacher ever! She was totally unreceptive and did not prepare my child adequately for third grade. One of the diamonds in the rough here is a Very Pro-Active PTA. Maybe they can turn things around. Overall, Atalaya was a bad match for our family.

My daughter is int he 2nd grade at Atayala and both she and I are very happy with the school. They have been very supportive of parent interaction with class activities and her education is top notch. We couldn't ask for a better environment right now.
