Great principal and overall very good teachers. Parents volunteer a lot which makes it easy for the teachers to focus on teaching. My kids really enjoyed going here and I would recommend this school. They also have an outdoor science area to learn about nature and the core subjects are good.

It could really benefit from from teaching students how to treat ...  Read more

I'm very sorry to hear that your experience here at Hacienda was so bad. My child is in the 5th grade and he has ADHD. It's a huge daily struggle that unless you have walked a mile in that parent's shoes most people can't realize. I understand your frustration. My child was so disruptive in kindergarten, ...  Read more
