10 Parent Reviews for Folsom Elementary School

I think this school so far is wonderful. My son just started kindergarten this year and he loves his teacher Ms.Stone. He has learned so much and is doing very well. Everyday is something new and exciting for him. Every morning I walk him to the cafeteria for breakfast. There is a teacher in every hall. ...  Read more

This school is wonderful. Staff is really helpful. My children love this school. Parent involvement needs to increase. The newsletters are informative, and sent in a timely manner.

I agree that Folsom has gone down over the last several years with their leadership team and quality of education that the children get. I had to pull my children out of the school two years ago and now they are doin much better in a magnet school.

Folsom has declined so much over the years. The current leadership is aweful. Most of the communications from the school have so many errors you would think that the kids were sending them. Wrong dates or wrong days on almost all of them, especially with the after school program.

Folsom has dropped from an A grade school approximately 3 years ago to a C.The new principal came in with an ego and immediately asserted herself as the person in charge and discontinued all of the programs formerly established by her predecessor. It's clear she intended to 'make her mark'. The school ...  Read more

Folsom Elementary has extended to the community and held wonderful family nights to encourage involvement. I have my son at this school and would say that it is an acceptable place to learn. Some of the teachers are inspiring and the specials departments really enhance the experience. While I like the ...  Read more

My son has been at Folsom for 2 years. Only in the last 2 months have I seen anything to keep us around. I am trying to see the good, but have trouble doing so. A few of my son's friends have transferred or are now being homeschooled due to similar frustrations as we have had. The only thing that ...  Read more
