The principal is ok, seems like a nice enough guy but is always unavailable when needed (joe Estrada). The assistant principal is great, she makes her self available even when she's not if there's an urgent concern that needs delt with (Rachel Morton). I can't remember thier names off the top of my head but the special ed teacher and counsler my child was assigned to where doing great with the support they got. The homeroom teacher, well she was a horrible fit for my child. She had zero training for special needs children. Her mentality was "my classroom, my rules" and "punish the behavior out of the kid" etc. which is good for typical children, not so much ones that are not. She had a hard time coming to the reality that these types (autistic) of kids really can't help a lot of what they do. She was unwilling to learn any different, didn't follow the IEP etc. In the end I left the school as it was a bad fit for us.

My family loves this school, multiple members of our family have gone to this school and we couldn't be happier. We had an opportunity to go to another school and we decided to stay In this area to be able to go to this school. Two years in a row my 1st grader has had Amazing teachers! She is currently in in a dual language and the GT class and has done very well. I have gotten a lot of feedback and resources from her teachers. We are so proud to be a Farine Falcon!

We love this school. My child is in third grade and we have been here since kindergarten. We love the teachers, dual language program and loving and caring staff. Farine is our family and we feel that this is a safe learning environment for our child.

Teachers give their all to student learning each day. They come early and stay late to ensure that their students receive the most engaging instruction on a consistent basis.
