10 Parent Reviews for La Veta Elementary School

My daughter went to first grade in this school and I guess she got the worst teacher ever when it come to class organization and discipline. Although I worked full time and a mom with 4 kids, I made it to a point to go and be a parent volunteer once a week! I saw it all with this one partucular teacher! ...  Read more

Wonderful teachers and parents. Unfortunately, the principal (Mrs. Smith) is awful. : ( She is overly controlling (alienating actually), and she is decimating the wonderful traditions that have been enjoyed at this school for years. Very sad. : (

I'm not very happy with the school, my daughter is in 1st grade and I guess her teacher is dealing with personal problems and it shows, the kids did not learn as the other classes, and my daughter was placed on a very challenging class. I hope next year we have more luck and we have a better teacher.

La Veta is a good school with an excellent GATE program. The school facilities have recently been painted including colorful murals and are in good shape. The school atmosphere is very upbeat and positive, and Mrs. Dahlquist is an excellent principal and one of the school's greatest assets.

Our oldest daughter transferred to La Veta from a nearby private school that she had attended since pre-school. She is currently in the 5th grade GATE program and is being challenged academically in many more ways.

The facilities are old and in need of upkeep. The staff seem to be very enthusiastic and helpful. The GATE program seems especially strong based on the teachers and principal.
