    "If youi want your child to get an actual education, do NOT send them to this school. This place is horrible. All of the staff is incredibly rude. They don`t talk to you, they yell at you. If they`re going to treat parents in such a manner, I can only imagine what those kids go through everyday. Even the crossing guard right out front is rude. The principal is rude. The school has run out of food for the kids in last lunch on more then one occasion. All they offer is 12 different varieties of chicken, anyway. My son`s teacher can`t even be bothered to do anything she said she would. She won`t set up a conference, or email me when she says she will. She has an attitude, too. There`s not one person that I have dealt with up at this school that should be responsible for children. If I could give zero stars, I would."

    "Very limited information sent home to parents/guardians, some rude office staff (rude to homeless people who are already struggling), too much traffic dropping off and picking up, called teacher and never returned call's. Very nice nurse. Rather than following up with parent/guardian on absences they send you a truancy notice. Lack of support for students who are behind, have emotional problems, or have previously been followed since Kindergarten by Student Success Team at another Lake Elsinore School for not being at grade level and still isn't. Communication with parents/guardians is key, written policies not last minute changing the rules, provide after school care playtime/ gametime for students and parents/guardians due to the early release from school not just the Think Together Program which I'm sure is great but most go daily with no absences. More approachable office staff. A school counselor/ psychologist that reviews incoming students paperwork and schedules time with parent/guardian to come up with a plan for student success. I believe student success, safety, and communication for effective learning are keys to improvement."

    "I'm sorry to hear how bad this school and the surrounding area has become. I went to Machado from 2nd-6th grade back in the mid to late 80's and it wasn't that bad. My favorite teachers were Mrs Theresa Thompson. Mrs Sarah Crumbo & Mrs Reyes (can't remember her first name.)"

    "This "school" if it can even be deemed a school, is an embarrassment to the district. I've noticed a few good comments regarding teachers. Listen people there are good teachers even in the most horrible schools but overall the blame is not on the teachers but the community in which this school is located. I have never written a review before and felt appalled by the good comments I've read. Either the commenters have no clue what a "good" school is or the teachers/staff wrote it in an attempt to portray the school as 'decent'. This school is far from decent and I as a tax payer am outraged that I am finding such a disaster. There is no parent involvement whatsoever and it is located in the center of chaos! If you are looking for a school full of lockdowns, uncleanliness, rude staff and horrible test scores, well this is the school for you. I'd honestly rather home school my child then force them into this school. I can't believe I am financially supporting a school that sets up kids for failure! Simply... It's a HORRIBLE school!"

    "My granddaughter goes to this school and what a horrible school it is between the staff treating her bad and the lockdowns that I have heard they have had wow what a mess my daughter is transferring her out! And this poor gal is only in first grade."
