34 Parent Reviews for Los Coyotes Elementary School
In all honesty, I really detested the 3rd to 6th grade. My kinder-2nd grade school teachers were satisfactory, but from the 3rd grade on up, I really had a problem with my teachers. The only reason I actually managed to get good grades and know anything that the "teachers" "taught" was from my parents
... Read more sending me to an afterschool. I learned literally nothing from my 3rd to 6th grade classes.I highly recommend that nobody should consider sending their children to this horrendous school. The teachers are extremely biased as well. For example, Teacher, ________ was biased to the point were she didn't give out detentions to only 1 student even when He/She didn't complete His/Her homework! If you want your child to have a good education I highly suggest that you send your student to a different school. This is coming from the best point of view one could have on insights in a school. Teachers are biased and won't report freely, parents aren't there at school with the students 24/7, and the same reason with teachers for the principal as well. Notice how all the reviews that are above me are by parents. There are almost none by the student, and now, you got one. Read less

So glad the old principal is gone. School is great for students and parents who are exceptional and smart. If not, then the staff and teachers want as little to do with you as possible. Do the teachers a favor and only send your children there if they will score a perfect 600 on their state tests, be

My child transferred to Los Coyotes after Walter Knott Elementary School unexpectedly closed. At first I was disappointed that my child would have to attend a different school. It is a longer drive for us in the morning. Yet it is small price too pay, because little did we know LOS COYOTES would be
... Read more a blessing in disguise. What an extreme difference from Walter Knott Elementary(RIP)! At Los Coyotes we have parents who volunteer, participate, and are involved in their children's education. At last a breath of fresh air. Kudos to the awesome office staff Sherry Martinez is outstanding! Finally a Principal that is visible, fun, friendly, positive and energetic. The only thing we miss about Walter Knott is the wonderful teachers, nothing else! In my opinion, Los Coyotes is the ideal model of a "close to perfect school". Keep up the good work! Read less

I love the principal and both of the teachers my kids have. They are very high tech, in terms of teaching on smart boards, as well as communicating via the internet and phone messages...trying to be more green. They don't overdo the fundraisers, and have a heart for doing the right thing.

Los Coyotes is a good school, but the combo class was a real detriment to my child. I knew in September that the combo class was not going to be a good idea and now that the school year is over, it unfortunately became a truth. It seems as if my child wasted a year. As good as the teachers

This school is great. The Principal is hands down one of the best leaders I have ever come across.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11.
