BEST school ever. We transferred our kinder from Westside (TOO big) to Rancho this year (2012-13) and it was the best decision we ever made. The school (small at 300+) is so well thought-out in design, but the the teachers, staff and principal make it simply amazing. They greatly encourage parental involvement, and are a marvel to witness with the children. It seems as if every person who is employed there is 100% thrilled to be there and all seem to LOVE what they are doing...which makes a tremendous difference to the children. My kinder is 'back to normal' by way of being (once again) confident, independent, and is learning FAR more than we could have dreamed. In the KG grades, homework is NOT a huge focus (as it is at Westside w/over 20+pages of homework a WEEK), but flashcards, decodable readers and little projects are the norm. It has been an absolute JOY to us, as parents, to have had our child attend this incredible school. I would HIGHLY recommend it over all others! The principal knows every single child's name in his school...no joke. The calm, serene, comfortable environment seems to be highly conducive to learning...something other schools should absolutely model. :)
