10 Parent Reviews for Tolenas Elementary School

Overall Tolenas is a great school. My son has been going for two years now and both teachers are amazing, My issue is the staff.

If substandard staff and the worst parking issues and parking monitors in the history of Elementary schools than this is the school for you. While given the short end of the stick due to budget cuts this school manages to prove to everyone they are not happy about it. The attitudes are unacceptable and ...  Read more

I feel that the teachers and staff at Tolenas are always working together to do what is in the kid's best interests. They have great programs, music, sports...etc. In an economy that is unsteady, they are doing their best to shield the education of the children, and keep them working toward their goals. ...  Read more

I have one child that attends Tolenas, I have not been impressed with the performance of the teachers. You look at the API scores and the best is just over half the students meeting profiecient. How is that good? The other half don't matter? I feel all students should have to be proficient to pass ...  Read more

We moved out daughter to Tolenas last year into the GATE program. We were thrilled with the school. Her academics took off. The music program is awesome. They still have art and other activities unlike the school she attended prior. The teachers were easy to contact and work with. The school has ...  Read more
