In the 2+ years here, my daughter has gotten quality education and we experienced a most modern approach to learning. I appreciate the teachers, staff, admin and leadership.

San Joaquin is making huge strides and the culture is definitely changing. Teachers are incorporating different strategies within the classroom and various programs are being initiated.

I would take my child out of this school if I could. My child has been a victim of bullying since arrival, and the principal has taken NO action against it. The teachers/volunteers in the yard tell the students to get away from them when approached with a problem. ineffective, and their scores continue to decline. I ask why this principal is still employed.

My daughter is in third grade at San Joaquin, she's been a Cheetah since Kindergarten, and we absolutely love it. The school and staff have really worked hard to increase the quality of the experience for the kids over the last couple of years, and it's showing in my daughter's development. Her teacher last year REALLY pushed her to excel in areas she was falling behind on, and by the end of the year she was an honor roll student. Her teacher this year is just as great. The principal has always taken my concerns very seriously, and she really cares about the well being of the kids, and wants them to do well. Any issue I've had has been resolved immediately. The school is also proactive about offering bullying prevention seminars. The after school TLC program is also top notch - Rhea and her staff have become like family. They help my daughter with her homework every day, and do a great job at giving the kids creative outlets and activities, which is such a big help to working parents like me. My little one is happy and receiving an excellent education at San Joaquin, and I couldn't give it a higher recommendation.

San Joaquin is a wonderful school! The only reason Great Schools has given it a 4 is because of outdated test scores. This is the same reason it is labeled "Program Improvement". This rating is based on standardized tests from years ago; tests not even given in the state of California anymore. San Joaquin has worked hard, and their teachers, curriculum, and resources are top notch. Come take a tour of this awesome school and see for yourself the learning that happens when you are a San Joaquin cheetah!
