Something is ALWAYS going on at this school one way or another. Parental involvement is through the roof , which normally would be ideal BUT its always the same parents controling what goes on or how things are run. They have their "clique" and if you arent in it, they arent interested in what you have ...  Read more

Mariposa has been a great experience for us this year. My daughter is in kindergarten and has really had a great time and learned a lot. The PTA has put on some fun activities and there seems to be a lot of parent involvement. The teachers really care about their students and it shows. Great school ...  Read more

I am a parent of two children at this school. I was reading the reviews and felt I had to say something. I do not know what school the parents with these negative comments are speaking about, not once do I recall them having 7 fundraisers in one year, never have my children come home upset or with the ...  Read more

Teachers are ignorant, careless, and they do not value your children. If you do not spend extra time and/or ...  Read more

This school has failed my children on so many levels, I felt I had to say something. Most of the problems seem to coincide with the arrival of the current Principal. They had 7 fund raisers between September and November of 2009. I have no idea where the money goes. The Principal told the students ...  Read more

I have 2 kids at this school and had 3, but felt I had no other option and moved my child to Fanning, after a 1 year course of bulling. She felt she had to befriend the bull since the Principal claimed it was just 'girl drama' My oldest will be moving on to the Jr. High,(thank god) and my kindergartner ...  Read more

Don't ignore the negative reviews. This school does well in thanks to great demographics and parent involvement (lots of stars, yay!). The minute you raise an issue, you are a person 'with issues'. There are some great teachers, but the lazy ones who only tolerate perfectly compliant children can ...  Read more

My child attended Mariposa for the 1st time this past year and it was a good experience. I attended each of the field trips & felt they were both educational as well as well planned. I feel the Principal truly cares & is very involved as both a school official & a parent. She too has a child at the school. ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
