  • This is the worst school in the whole Fallbrook Union District! The staff at the facility are incompetent and have no background credentials in dealing with children on a military base. Most of the children that attend this school are forced to deal with issues involving military parents that deploy on a regular basis and the staff have never served in their lives. I feel this is a huge gap that needs attention. If situation permits the private education institution is the way to go. I have been in several school districts through my assignments in the military and this school needs the attention of the state.

  • This school is located on Camp Pendleton but the staff doesn't seem to understand or have concern about the special way of life military children have or children that have special needs. I have had two children in this school for a year becuase it was supposed to be the best school on the base and have since looked for other options for our children because of the lack of leadership, understnading, and guidance for the students by the staff. If your child has special needs, I would not recommend this school at all. It may be differnt for parents of children who have no special needs and can almost self educate themselves but not for others,

    They have varying discipline depending upon the child(ren) involved. They do not notify parents during situations that they should (a student saying that they want to kill themselves would only be one example!). They state that they won't tolerate bullying but then don't do anything but talk with the bully about what their actions are.
    I have been as involved as they allow the parents. The staff states that they will initiate things (after an incident) , they'll have a parent/staff meeting and then never follow up on the ideas. I have signed up to be a part of the solution on many occasions and was never contacted. When I followed up on a particular solution, I was told that it never took off and they decided not to do that program (one was a school watch after children vandilized the school several times).

  • My children have attended this school for over three years now through its ongoing changes and trials and tribulations. Overall, the school, tries tries very hard and the admin staff is wonderful and very caring and understanding to the needs of the stuf=dends and the families and we are very pleased of the advancement of Mr. B becoming the new Principal. He has been a teacher and worked his way through his position and in all my years and in in different years and as a former educator myself, I truly see a person that really cares and is committed to his students, school and making a difference. We have been blessed to encounter staff and teacher who care for our children and love what they do and go the extra mile and I find that a rare entity for any school. I have seen this school grow over the past 20 years into what it is today and I proud to say the progress continues. While many may complain, they have know idea how far this school has comes and far it is going. It is taking making strides and coming together. Either be a part of the solution or get out of the way. I support the staff, while yes, there may be a few bad apples in teachers that are difficult and in need reprogramming a could use a stern talking to in which a preschooler could set them straight, the good out weighs the ugly and those, well you just document and report and stand up to them and report them in a manner suitable and appropriate, setting a good example for everyone . No person wants to listen to an irate person while you may be angry, you must first calm yourself and have your "ducks in a row" per say, in order to be heard and listened to. You make more progress that way. You also set an example you would hopefully like your child to follow to in your foot steps in dealings with their issues as they learn to deal their issues that may arise. Overall, the school tries very hard, they have wonderful programs, they try very hard, it is a fun place to be and it is what you make of it. I would recommend placing your child here, while over crowded at the moment, the kinks are being worked out, but the education and the fun and friends they will make and the zero tolerance is enforced and worth it. Kudos.!!!!
