I was not at all impressed with this school. I believe the class sizes has a lot to do with the quality of interaction teachers can provide. My child was in a class with 27 students. This school regularly takes away children's recess time to cram more academic learning time into their day instead of ...  Read more

Ponderosa Elementary -- I felt like attention is paid to the safety of my grand-daughter.

It was nice ...  Read more

Ponderosa has been fantastic for our son. Ms. Gilbert was an amazing 1st grade teacher and helped him grow beyond our expectations.

Excellent school, great teachers, a principal that is outstanding. Best thing I have done for my son was to move into the Ponderosa area

I would disagee. As a parent who has been around I would say that the principal cares immensely and works hard to keep the kids safe. She does not tolerate bullying- by kids or parents. I volunteer every week for two hours and I can tell you that the principal can't walk down the hallway without getting ...  Read more

Principal is too militaristic but most teachers are pleasant. Ms Gilbert was a great teacher for our daughter. Principal does scare me. No warmth in her. Overcrowded and too much focus on beating other schools and getting in the newspaper at this school.

Excellent school. Wonderful staff and great teachers. Class sizes to high in some grades is hurtful, but they make the best of it. My kids love this school! I'm very happy with it too.
