  • My son attended this school this year for kindergarden, this is a wonderful school. friendly teachers, My son got to make a picture yearbook at the end of the year. now I can give it to him when he grows up to show him what he's done as a 5 year old. If I could take him back to this school I would in a heart beat. but we are moving out of the city. I would recomend this school to anyone. Also they're education level is good as well. API of 933.

  • This school Is perfect.Not like other elementary schools that have smashed up bathrooms.The kids here do not bully each other and their teachers are perfect.This school also gives a lot of homework so kids will have more practices.And also they award prizes for being good citizens,super kids,and lots more for being good at school.

  • For those parents who are concerned that kids are not getting enough homework, this is the school for you. We all know practice makes perfect. In anything we do, if you practice often enough, you will master the skill. This is the reasoning behind the homework policy.

    In early 2000, the school only had an API score around 600 or 700. For 2005 - 2006 school year, the score is 925 making it the highest API score elementary in Hacienda La Puente USD.

    Parents are very involved in students learning in this school. I am one of those parents. In addition to the school work, I also tutor my kids at home with extra English and Math work. Other parents do the same as well.

    I can't write enough good things about this school. Check it out for yourself.
