Read what parents are saying about Los Padres Elementary School
Currently I am a student at UCSC and I graduated from Los Padres. My experience was good at the time but now I realize that I was not prepared for what was ahead, such as studying at a university level. I would like to inform the parents that our (yes I include myself) lack of success is due to the lack of resources. What I mean by this is that the lack of funding for education is hurting the students, but what hurts the most is that no one takes the initiative to fundraise for the schools. In my opinion the more activities a school provides the better because that will keep them involved and out of trouble. I think that in order for these children not to form part of the statistic of drop outs is to provide them with a rich education that leaves with them that day of promotion. I am tired of hearing others blame schools and teachers when the community can come together and fun for the student's learning. If anyone is interested in this issue I am talking about then check out the video on youtube titled "First to Worst" it has seven parts to it. Trust me watching it will change your life I say it because it happened to me. Fortunately there is hope.

I really like this school. I have two children in this school and they have been students at Los Padres since kindergarten. I've liked everyone of their teachers and they have all helped my children grow. A lot of the teachers are young and full of energy, therefore they participate with the kids in a lot of fun activities. They have talent shows, after school programs, music groups and new this year is the Baile Folklorico dance group. My children are both involved in the dance group and wow, let me say that these dance teachers are extremely passionate about what they do and extremely dedicated. They are great! I am a very involved parent at the school and I enjoy the fact that there are a lot of parents involved. The principal at this school Ms.Huerta is great! Also very passionate and dedicated to her job, the lids and the parents. She is also very involved in all of the school activities which is great to see. I recommend this school. My kids have learned a lot, scored high in all tests and continue to grow with the help of all school staff.
