16 Parent Reviews for Placitas Elementary School

It's really sad that someone has chosen to anonymously attack this good school and accuse those who have given it good reviews as liars. The positive reviews are not spam but honest reviews by parents. The accusations made against this school and the other parents are unfounded and vindictive. What's ...  Read more

I have to say, the test scores tell the real story. The scores are good, the teachers are great, and we are very happy with the school. I agree, if you have concerns, take them to the Governance Board!

Spamming the Review section with false misleading positive reviews is painful even when they are positve in nature. Get a grip parents even the positive ones are just as vindictive.

The veracity of the comment regarding special needs students is questionable. The school's special education is managed by the district and they work hard to conform to the law. If there is a problem, that's where the blame belongs. All the special needs kids that I am aware of at Placitas Elementary ...  Read more

Special needs students have all been relegated to one classroom, violating federal standards on Least Restrictive Environment. Any school can do much better when/ir students who prove disruptive to other students are shuttled off into one classroom.

As stated numerous times here, the school went through a major switch in teaching and administration. My son LOVES his school and is being challenged (FINALLY), he has been at PES from 1st grade and didn't learn anything from 1st to 2nd grade but has excelled greatly with the new teaching staff! I am ...  Read more
