Rancho Mirage Elementary School Reviews
The teachers were horrible. They only care about AR points. The students were extremely mean to me. The teacher I had only lost her temper everyday and never really cared about our learning. In addition, they even switched one 5th grade classroom to 2 other teacher and made a 4th and 5th grade class because of budget cuts. So, it made grasping concepts difficult. The classrooms are noisy and just plain terrible!
