My three children have been at this school of years. I think most of the teachers are great.

This is a great school if you are most interested in the amazing leadership of the principal and most of her staff. Some of the parent volunteers tend to live through their kids and are so incredibly over the top about being at the school daily to show everyone how hard they try. Just be sure not to ...  Read more

Oso Grande is a wonderful and engaging learning environment. My girls have always been excited to go to school, and the teachers and staff have been nothing short of exceptionl. The parent involvement at Oso is amazing and helps makes it the best school in Ladera! The negative reviews I read are far-off-base.

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