9 Parent Reviews for Armijo Elementary School

There are way too many children in one class. My child is in 3rd grade now and she has 29 other kids in her class. Unfortunately that is way to many kids in one classroom. Some of the teachers are great but they can not teach that many kids without leaving the ones at the top behind.

I do not feel that Armijo Elementary is a school which students should attend. The teachers don't show any motivation and they don't show much care for the parents. It is unfortunate that the administrative staff ( principal) doesn't work on its ethics for caring for the kids. I personally feel that ...  Read more

Armijo Elemenary is in definate need of help.

The students ...  Read more
