    "We are very disappointed with this school. Lack of communication from principal and teachers has been a huge issue. We came mid year from out of state. On the first day of school we were not allowed to walk our children to the classroom or to speak with the teachers. We tried to set up meetings through emails that went unanswered. Went to the front office to set up a time to meet and was instructed to call the class room from the office but, the teachers were not in the classroom(many substitutes at this school for meetings during the school day). Finally when I did get to meet with one teacher(have to this day never met my other child's teacher) by going to the classroom after school was unaware after 3 weeks that my child had IEP! We get no class work, tests even art work sent home EVER. We have no clue how our child is doing until we get the report card home and if your child is not struggling you do not get a parent teacher conference. Everything seems to be taught to the test. One child has never stepped foot in the school library. I would steer clear of this school."

    "My daugher, first grade student in the bilingual program, has fantastic teachers (both in Spanish and English). Parents are extremely involved supporting all kind of activities for the kids and rising funds for different programs. This program is a hidden treasure!"

    "We've enjoyed several years of the Dual Immersion (DI) Program, which I highly recommend. Overall the teachers are really wonderful with only a couple of exceptions. Unfortunately, the principal is generally unavailable (not on campus), and does not respond proactively to complaints of bullying or other problems. The principal does, however, strongly support the DI program, and seems to assign the best teachers there. Parent support and volunteerism is fairly high among the DI classes, but not so much in the mainstream classes. If my children were not in the DI program at Las Animas, I would definitely choose another school. Communication from the front office leaves a lot to be desired, including late nor non-existent newsletters."
