This is an amazing school. My sons' school years started in Oxnard and the teachings that Nora Sterry offers bypasses those of Ventura county. Mrs. Jenkins who is his third grade teacher is very sweet, personable, and careing towards the children's learning experiences. It is very easy to communicate with her via email or in person because she's always available and open to discuss my son's status and learning goals. Not only does she tend to student's individual needs but she assures that all of the students participate so no one is left behind! I'm reading reviews and I see that some parents complained about the proficiency level of the school but honestly if your child is focused, they will not fall short at all. They will actually gain a lot from the teachers as well as their peers. This is the calmest, smallest public I've ever seen. P.S. I hear the cafeteria food is awesome!
