Los Encinos is making a difference in our child's education. It has great teachers and a great principal. My child loves going to school. The school has many activities for my child.

The school offers so many activities for the students and they have won so many awards. The change has been good. So many times people just do not like change but the school is outstanding. Best run school.

This used to be a great school when Mrs. Cavazos was the principal. Now, with the new management I am very dissapointed at the direction the school is going. I am considering moving my kids.

This school is great. I would not want to change a thing about it. The prinicpal keeps you informs and its true she knows the parents of every child. All the teachers I have encountered I can talk to with my concerns and the concerns of my child. Keep up the Good Work!!!!
