  • Micheltorena was one of the best public schools in California. When my family moved north to Santa Barbara my mother was shocked at the poor quality of the English/reading materials for students. The information they covered I went over during the previous grade, if not early.

    The teachers were wonderful and so was the principal (at that time, Mr. Christianson). I had Mrs. Avila back in the 70s. Glad to hear she continued to inspire students into the next decade.

    To the reviewer who gave one apple, I understand your disappointment but your review has no relevance to the quality of the school as your child never attended the school.

  • I would think twice before enrolling your child at this school. Last May, I filled out an application to enroll my daughter to their Fall 2010 pre-school program. At the time, the administrators told me they will be notifying parents on acceptance and date of orientation in mid-July. Every time I called I get an excuse such as “We will be calling you”, “Just look for information in the mail”, and “We are still looking for a teacher.” I kept getting the run around until one week before school started. Their excuse this time was the district needed to grant approval to be admitted because the program was a state funded program which was based on income but they still strung me around with no answer. Now, at this point it got me thinking, is this is a type of school I can trust my child with, where they procrastinate and couldn’t give you a straight answer? I am also upset for the fact that it is too late for me to look for another program as other schools have started or have a massive waiting list. Thank you Micheltorena, I finally got your phone call and we were denied one day after your school started.
