  • This school is by far the worst school my daughter has ever been to. It is far from being sanitary. They do not allow students to use hand sanitizer,there are now trash cans in the restrooms that the children use. My daughter was so embarrassed b/c she had to carry her pad to her class room to throw it away. Can you only image how she felt? There is a 5th grade teacher that has my daughter write me notes for her. Yeah get that the teacher can not write her own note she has my daughter to do it! A boy took my daughter's homework put his name on it and my daughter got in trouble for it.The teacher made my daughter write a note to me and say she was in the wrong.I was to sign it. I gave it to the principal and told him I was not going to sign it b/c it was my daughter's home work and the teacher was in the wrong. So b/c I didnt sign it the teacher took my daughters recess away from her. Like I said this school is the worst. I am pulling my kids out this school and putting them in Yucca Valley Elementary so my children are not to continue to be treated this way.

  • This is the best school in the Yucca Valley area. My children have been going here for the past five years and I haven't had a bad experience yet. The teachers care about seeing the students improve. The prinipal and staff are all friendly and available.
