John Steinbeck Elementary School Reviews
Steinbeck is an excellect school Staff is friendly and hard working. Test score are very high and getting better every year, despite the changes of the boundries to make the newer schools look better.
I'm happy with the school, great effort from staff. I wish I can participate more.
I really like Steinbeck. My son is learning things in Kindergarten I didnt learn until 1st or 2nd grade, he loves the staff so thats also a plus. My only concern is the timing they give on events and home (parent) assignments. I am a working single parent and sometimes when the notice goes home on Monday I dont see it until Tuesday and its due friday, very hard to complete especially if my child has to participate. I see him off to school but dont see him again until after bed time. But other than that! GREAT WORK!!
Would not recommend this school to anyone. Discipline problems are out of control!
