12 Parent Reviews for Onate Elementary School

I am new to this school and what a challenge just to get my child into class. The staff constantly harp on how you can't disrupt the class, to the point of keeping the children out. A teacher made the comment that the staff is very protective of them against the parents, and that is an understatement. ...  Read more

This is our neighborhood school. We've had children attend here for a long time. It is a bit smaller in population than other schools, so it has a bit of a family feel. I can't think of a teacher I don't like. They have always seemed genuinely interested in my children's education. I know everyone ...  Read more

I am so glad to have left this school. I adored the teachers, but the administration left much to be desired. My children have progressed so much more since leaving this school. I wish I had done it five years ago.

Have two children at Onate. The size is extremely manageable and I feel that the teachers know all of the students. Teachers, principal, staff and parents are dedicated to making it a great school.

Onate is a great school. The principal has high expectations, both academically and behaviorally and is clear and consistent with these. Most teachers are great. My only concern is that we lost our School Counselor. Mrs. Moulton was exceptional! She knew all the kids and they knew her. She was in ...  Read more

I really love Onate for my child! Currently there are 2 classes per grade level and the smaller size and teacher attention feel like a private school might. I have been involved in my child's classroom and in bigger school activities (through PTA). The teachers have always welcomed me and have appreciated ...  Read more

While the staff for the most part are greatly qualified and caring, the principal is cold, lacks people skills and does not seem to have any genuine concern for her students. Safety issues within the community are glossed over, if ever addressed. Parents are definitely felt unwelcome on the campus.
