I have two children that have attended this school. I have found the teachers and administrators of this school to be professional, enthusiastic, kind, & concerned about each student. My children have both done very well on their test scores and have benefitted from all this school has to offer.

My daughter is in her 1st year at Rancho and at 1st I was really hesitant to send her there..but she loves it!!! I met a few of her teachers at back to school and they were great! So much information was given to me and i like that they email and keep the parents informed of how there child is doing..

How the rumors about this school get started and perpetuated are a source of amazement and at this point, humor to me. My child has been at Rancho Minerva since it opened and yes, she is white and scores very high on all the tests. I take very little stock in any of these standardized tests. What ...  Read more

If you care about your child education I would really consider another school. This school tests way below the benchmark standard for california criteria. Its mostly a minority school and english is the second language. They cater to remdial classes and providing support classes to students in need. ...  Read more
