    "My son is enjoying his second year at MRES and we are so pleased with the school and how much he is learning. He is very happy there and we couldn't be happier with the way the school is run. Two thumbs up for my son's current teacher, Mrs. Underhill, an excellent teacher!"

    "I couldn't be happier with MRES. My daughter started kindergarten there this year and it has been fabulous. Her teacher and ESS program is outstanding! The school has a great principal and structure. They are very informative keeping parents updated on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. I want to comment on the last 2 reviews listed here. About the parent who moved to CA-Yes, PUSD is one of the best. Im sorry you didn't do some researching on CA schools before you moved, but blaming PUSD for your regret of moving is atrocious. Obviously CA is not the "NE". PUSD is lucky enough to have such great teachers/parent support that they can overcome the budget cuts CA endures. A class size of 28 is not uncommon at all. Not sure where the class size of 35 comes from, as I believe 28 is the max. To the comment about the lottery system-I believe its best to blame the district about their systems, as opposed to the school. It was no secret that this school does a lottery. I don't think its fair to blame the school for something the district obviously decides."

    "We moved to California in 2011. Everyone told us that PUSD was the place to be for our kids to get a good education. I think maybe for CA schools, PUSD and this school might be considered great. Unfortunately I am horrified at what people consider a "great" education in San Diego. The programs (art, music, a real GATE program for elem) offered in our old school are nonexistent here. The class sizes are huge, 35 kids in one classroom is not acceptable. 22 was the max in the public school my kids attended in the NE. The schools are under funded and it shows. The teachers are really only teaching to test standards and not really caring if kids enjoy learning or are even learning at all. The whole thing makes me very sad and wish I had never come to CA to begin with."

    "It is ridiculous that you have a lottery for children to attend your school. especially those that live across the street, insane. No matter how great your school is, the fact that you prohibit children that live less than 500 feet to not go to your school, is poor administration. My child feels he is not good enough, as well as the fact I paid 7 years of melaroos to go to a 22 year old school and not the one RIGHT next to my house."
