Marengo Ranch Elementary School Reviews
The principal and office staff are outstanding and so are the teachers 1st through 3rd grade. After that it's a hit and miss. Most are very good. However, I was appalled to find a 4th grade teacher whom shops on the internet for clothes/shoes during class times and has not real interest in supporting students that don;t already know subject matter. All class work is graded by peers. My child dropped from a high average to a below average grade for the first time in her class. We now have a new teacher and all has returned to normal. Upon complaining to administration I found out she was tenured. I also discovered that several previous students/parents from various years were aware of the problem and had also complained. I am considering removing my children from the school. I'm upset that a teacher like this is allowed to continue poor instruction while so many good teachers are laid off. There is something that can be done.
this is a very good school and safe and they let the family know every thing they care for the kids and school the staff it careing
