    "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."

    "Great school. Very happy there. The honors program is excellent. Because it is a charter school, the principal has flexibility in making decisions without the bureacracy. Parents need to volunteer a min. of 10 hours a year. Overall, a great learning environment."
