Santa Margarita Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

I think the teachers and staff are very friendly. Always take an interest in parents concerns. The school is absolutely wonderful and my kids love going there.

This year Santa Margarita is much improved since the new school is now open. I am very happy with my child's education and teacher. He really enjoys going to school. My biggest complaint is the class sizes. He has 32 in a 1st grade class! Too many for one teacher.
