    "Sakamoto is an amazing school. I have had two children go through it and currently have a 5th grader attending. Each has had a positive experience. The sense of community between the parents and the commraderie of the staff makes the school wonderful. My children have been challenged academically and taught to think. More importantly, they have been nurtured by kind teachers who always have their best interest. We will be sad when our days at Sakamoto come to an end, but will always hold it in our hearts."

    "my grandson has been at this school k to 4th grade. It is a challenging academic school one of the most sought after if you are fortunate to live in this district. recently my grandson was enrolled in a low income low test ratio school due to parents who would rather see their kid pass math with out learning the fundamentals . Now it's time to teach parents that they are only hurting their child by telling him he can't graduate on Sakamotos high standards ! It's sad to see that parents would take this route just to get their kid to the next grade with out learning what will be needed for his future! is this what education is about now? less parenting time to spend on homework rather than push a kid to their highest capabilities if given the opty. It's a shame to waste a school voted 9 out of 10 that makes sure the kids are educated not just taking up a seat to a school voted #3 with no test results to show ! every teacher knows every student in Sakamoto the front desk lady is wonderful knows each student by name and the parents. yes Sakamoto is tuff it's why parents strive to be in this district."

    "My son is finishing his 5th grade year. We've been a Sakamoto family since 2010. (2nd grade). The most solid thing about this school is it's administrative staff. The "front desk" woman mentioned in the previous review is neither rude nor inattentive. She has a great sense of humor. She is what makes this school tick like a fine Swiss watch while she continuously adapts to te principa'ls revolving door! Moving on: The PTO is productively connected and the newly appointed board is promising in both the brains and community brawn! The teaching staff is a cohesive team. I've witness camaraderie in the classroom and out. The voted upon parent funded programs (by way of PTO), have had a hiccup this year and communicative efforts have fallen short, but the job is getting done and I have a lot of faith in the new board. Kids are happy! School is safe. Parent drivers can be poopy! But that happens at all schools!"

    "My child is currently enrolled in the kindergarten and we are very happy with his teacher and the curriculum they teach. The homework is challenging and he is learning a lot. It's been a joy to see him learn to read too. The only gripe I have is with the elderly front desk woman. She has been unnecessarily rude and I don't appreciate her giving people attitude, including me. She makes asking simple questions difficult and is not very approachable. I wish someone would talk to her. few interaction I had with the elderly front desk woman, who always seems to have an attitude and is rude. It's almost impossible to ask questions with her without some sort of unnecessary tone and annoyance. Other than that, so far so good!"

    "This is an amazing school. Everyone from the office staff to the teachers are just great. Due to bad experience at her previous school, my daughter was very apprehensive about starting a new school, she enjoys going to school again :)"
