    "There is a fantastic new principal here at Village View. Her leadership is to commended. I read some of the other reviews here and I don't think it is fair to judge the teachers because of fliers that go home for fundraising via the PTA. The teachers spend large portions of their own money for supplies, center activities, etc for the students. With the budget cuts around the state, fundraising is a fact of life. I have been to other schools and Village View has had one fundraiser this year, the silent auction, compared to when we were in South County, we had a flier come home every two weeks for some type of fundraiser. The teachers at Village are fair and consistent. They love the students are always helping. Again, when I was in Capistrano Unified, I saw teachers berating students in the hallways, constantly complaining and they were miserable. I have never seen that at Village View. The teachers differentiate instruction for all students, they utilize the resources available on campus to enhance learning and they are great communicators."

    "Unfortunately, I have to agree with the bad reviews about this school. And we are on the other side of the coin. My son is academically very advanced, very social and active child. Unfortunately, these teacher have absolutely no idea how to engage advanced kids into activities that will be interesting for them and help them improve even better. He is extremely bored, his homework takes him less than 10 minutes, and he is not encouraged to advance any further. Also, if you are a working parent and are unable to volunteer your time and engage in all the teacher gossiping and cattiness, your child s academic performance will go unrecognized and he will have to witness unfair treatment, which is very bad for a small child s self esteem. I also heard from other parents that some of these teachers pick on kids which is extremely wrong. I only hope that the new principle gets more involved and closely supervises these teachers work if they want to see any improvement. Because whether your child needs help or he is an advanced child, a lot of these teachers lack basic skills for working with children in general. We will be changing schools next year."

    "Do not enroll your child in this school. The principal is horrible as well as the "kids club" after school program. Some of the teachers are ok but I really have nothing positive to say about this school. Too much gossip and catiness between staff and I have to agree with too much fundrasing and "money". When did schools become about money not to mention the "huge" class sizes."

    "Village View has been a school in our family for decades. My mother, aunts, uncles, my husband, his younger brother and now our daughter attends there. Soon both our boys will be attending there as well. I would have to agree with the two top comments that i think the school focuses on way too much fundraising & donations and that the teachers send home way too much homework. Especially for first graders. Not to mention that my daughter is having some difficulties in school and is extremly shy and it just seems to us that her teacher is very hard on her and hurts her feelings a lot. she loved school last year. This year every morning it's a struggle to get her to go. we are hoping we have a better expeirence next year or we will be switching schools. As for the principle & office staff, they are very nice, patient and have been helpful. Now to work on these not so friendly teachers.........."

    "Way too much time is spent on fun activities and all they are focused on is donations and fund raising. If you want your child to spend a special day with their teacher you have to pay for it. Isn t everyday supposed to be a special day with their teacher? Learning with their teacher should be considered special, not field trips. There are no school performances jus for the kids and their parents without you having to buy T-shirts or something of the kind. Nobody seems to care about the academic growth of the kids. No reading or math competition or any education challenging events. All the important benefits of education are undermined and too much emphasis is put on completely unimportant things."
