I really appreciate all the extra help the teachers and staff has extended to my daughter. I have excellent commnication with her teacher and we work as a team to help educate her. Teachers cannot do it alone. Parents must particpate in the education of their child. I am happy we made the decision to choose Coyote Ridge Elementary School.

The teachers are mean do not send your children here. The teachers are verbally abusive.

this school often tries to cross the line between teaching and parenting. instead of working together with the parents they try the "we know your kid better then you do! "approach.

My step-daughter attends this school and I am not happy with the way it is cluttered. I feel that she is not surrounded by multi-cultural students. I hate the fact that there are paleteras outside selling items as if it were a flea market.
