    "If you complain about a teacher or close friend of the Principle you will be retaliated against and not a single parent can or will risk helping you for fear their child will be hurt in some way. Beware."

    "I have had two children go through La Jolla Elementary and have been very pleased. Both of my children seemed to thrive at the school and have done well academically in Middle School. I really liked the focus on visual and performing arts in the daily curriculum and after school science program. I also like the way most parents were involved at the school and in the classroom."

    "Quality depends on the teacher. The scores of the school are good because they teach to the test! We had a wonderful 4th grade teacher, but then 5th grade was terrible (Room 14), the perfect example of public education. Grammar was never taught, nor history, since these subjects are not "tested". The 5th grade teacher did not correct the weekly essays and returned them until the end of the year and never covered history nor grammar which is fundamental. The full day in school was spent reading with buddies..or practicing the answers for the tests.. Math was much better. When I compare the work my daughter is now doing in a private school, there is not even a comparison. The parent involvement is wonderful and a nice group of kids, but the level of education is mediocre. When we asked the principal whey there were no vocabulary, grammar books and history was not even taught, her response was because the district does not require it. Del Mar SD is much better, they teach vocabulary, grammar and history and use the books and workbooks even if not tested for it.Do not get impressed by the scores of this school, they teach to the test."

    "Great school. Wish the Principal would reply to our request to meet. We've met with the teacher. My impression is they would rather not deal with the parents... We've put three children through the school over the last 15 years. This is the first time we have asked Ms. Tripi for a brief meeting after meeting with the teach with some concerns about our child. She does not even reply or delegate someone to reply, or even bother to have some automated response stating she'd love to reply but is just too busy.. just something. It's not rocket science. Maybe she could use the hour a day she directs traffic and do actual principal work."

    "The principal is amazing. She has high standards for all kids -- which is demonstrated in the test scores. The person who complained about her use of the bullhorn clearly hasn't been at the school long -- and doesn't really know that much about what goes on there. The principal needs the bullhorn at pickup, when hundreds of parents are trying to pick up their kid at the same time. As another reviewer said, there is so much noise the kids wouldn't be able to hear their name if she didn't use the bullhorn. Pickup is stressful because the school has so many students -- and because some parents illegally park, do U-turns directly in front of the school, and disregard the safety of all children except their own. As for the comment about the principal's attitude toward other races, again, this reviewer doesn't know the principal or the school, because that is not true."
