Golden Empire is the best school my students have attended in the state of California. (My husband is military and we move a lot!). The princpal is kind and caring it is obvious she cares about the students. I know she expects a lot from the students and the staff. She knows all of the student s names ...  Read more

I attended Golden Empire for my entire primary education. I do remember from 2nd-6th grade and have to say it was a wonderful experience. I am 31 yrs old now and a Physician. I know this may or may not reflect the current standards of the school but I can only hope that the children are getting the ...  Read more

This was our first year here, and within the first quarter both my kids teachers had noticed that they were struggling and started doing after school tutoring with them (and a few other kids), which lasted most of the year. Both of them love their teachers (K and 3rd) and have made friends, however ...  Read more

I agree, attendance is the only concern for this school. I guess because there are funds to earn behind it. On other things I have no idea when my grandson acts on a certain day. If he is made to stay in a classroom for two weeks because he threw food in the lunch room, shouldn't I know about it?

Golden Empire's teachers (I can only rate the 5th and 6th grade, since this is when my granddaughter began attending GE) are AWESOME! They really want the children to succeed and volunteer personal time to the students who are falling behind. When I attended elementary school in the 70's, teachers ...  Read more

I am very disappointed in this school. I strongly agree that the principal only cares about attendance, and crosses her professional line quite often. I feel that the teachers should communicate through email more with parents. I have never felt that any of my child's teachers have had a true open ...  Read more

This is my 8th year teaching at Golden Empire. The hard work of my talented and dedicated co-teachers (and their great students) was realized this year when we received The Blue Ribbon Award. This award was given to only 320 schools in the United States. Golden Empire is a neighborhood school with ...  Read more

With all the schools are required to do and all the pressure to prove their worth by test scores, I feel that this school really trues to maintain a balance while meeting all the needs put upon them. It is an excellent school with a dedicates staff. I recommend it to anyone.
