    "My wife and I have done research with this school. We like lots of things about this school. Academically they seems to do very well and they offer lots of elective classes and they have various after school sport program which we like. After reading the review on the great school website, we noticed that they got of great reviews for the academic programs and elective program and they got high reviews of teachers, but we also notice there was a pattern of complains about an administrative staff. Today when we took our son to take a placement test, we experience similar treatment from this particular administrative person who was conducting the test during the first half. She was rude, dismissive, unwelcoming to us and to all others that we witness. Now we have second thought about enrolling our kid in this school. It is very unfortunate that many teachers and staff works so hard to build this school reputation and it may takes only one person to leave a bad impression and feeling about this school. This rating is based solely on our experience with this administrative staff. We assume that all other teachers and staff are great as mentioned by other reviewer."

    "El Rancho has to be the most incredible school I have ever had my children attend!! I could not be more impressed with the administration, the staff, the teachers and the other students at this school!! So incredible, so smart, so generous!!! Truly impressed, and truly blessed to have had my children attend this phenomenal institution!!! If the high school was run the way El Rancho is run, I would not have sent my kids to private high school!!"

    "The administration at this school is extremely dismissive to both the students and parents. A Vice Pincipal fails to return calls in a timely manner, if at all and they never followed through on a complaint of a teacher throwing an object at my child. Office staff is very unprofessional, rude and unwelcoming. They have some good teacher's but the bad out weighs the good. The OCUSD needs to do a serious evaluation on the behavior of this school administrtion."

    "Our younger daughter recently decided to attend El Rancho Middle School. It was a decision she made during the summer after interacting with kids from the school at various local community events and learning about the exciting academic and music programs the school offers. We waited till the school got back from break and visited the school office first thing. The staff was cordial and very accommodating. The registrar signed us up for the Math Algebra Readiness test next morning and picked up the phone and called our old school to get the records transferred. Even though this was such a last minute move for us, our daughter got all the classes she wanted. We volunteered the day of Registration and she even got to meet the Principal while waiting in line to get her picture taken - that was the highlight of her day. The Administrators and Counselors are amazing and have an open door policy. Kudos to El Rancho for providing an exceptional academic environment for our kids."

    "We visited the school two years ago upon moving to CA to register our 8th grader, and decided against it because of the treatment we received from the school's registrar. But living in the area and knowing the kids, we decided to give it another try for our younger child, and we got the same treatment from the same employee. The registrar at El Rancho is curt and dismissive and her demeanor reads, "you are not welcomed here." This time she refused to give me a registration packet because it was her last one. The school's website declares: '"At El Rancho Charter School, we are always looking at ways to improve. Our charter status gives us the ability to think outside the box . I would strongly encourage the Orange Superintendent to investigate this employee and consider this review and TAKE ACTION TO IMPROVE THIS SCHOOL BY REMOVING THE FIRST PERSON A NEW STUDENT AND PARENT ENCOUNTERS UPON NEEDING TO ENROLL. WE PAY TAXES HERE AND SHOULD NOT BE TREATED THIS WAY. Her manner is blatantly appalling and we are in disbelief that the Orange Unified School District would be accepting of such behavior, especially, in an educational environment."
