Lomarena Elementary School Reviews
My children have had a wonderful experince at this school - great teachers and many opportunities for extra-curricular activities.
The AYP is a false & forced measure... a school that is already at peak levels of performance does not have as much room for growth as a school at lower levels. Teaching to the test has left more behind since the "NCLB" program was implemented. My children have learned how to learn both at home & at school... test taking is a part of that process, but NOT the only, nor the most important, part.
My daughter goes to school here and I have been very happy with her education since she started in kindergarten.
My niece was transfered to this school and so far we are very happy. The office staff is helpful and nice(customer service orianted) and my niece's 1st grade teacher keeps us informed on her learning.
