Maloney is a warm and friendly school, that comforts parents when dropping off their child, knowing they are in good hands. Their student council is very good, and the students elected show great leadership and definately know their stuff. However, this school lacks incentives, causing students not

The teachers are great at Maloney, very attentive, caring and good communicators. I've enjoyed working with both of my daughters' teachers, and there is even a couple who have made positive lasting impressions on my kids. Kudos to Maloney for hiring and keeping the good ones.

We're new to Maloney this year. The staff I've encountered while volunteering have the kids' best interest at heart, and my family feels safe there. The curriculum is the same as any FUSD school. Maloney is smaller than neighboring schools, a benefit for kids that need extra attention. In 4 months,

This issue affects testing/API ratings and community-building. Maloney is an overload school so kids move when their number comes up at Parkmont/Glenmoor, and parents of overload students may not always want to get involved (PTA, volunteering). Maloney increased its API rating to 7 this year, but because many kids are moved around, the effects of Maloney teaching are also reflected in the scores of the 10/10 schools. Kids move into the district mid-year and fill Maloney spots vacated by overloads, but may not have been taught to API tests. This school would rise to Above Average with more parental involvement, and be Excellent if overloads were better-managed by the district. Read less
