    "Excellent school with great teachers and students. Both of my kids love it. Great location too."

    "School performs because of the students (they take the tests reflected in the API), parent volunteers and their financial contributions to fill budget gaps along with the parent's high expectations who value education and insist their children are prepared for the future. 80% of the teachers are amazing and the other 20% are the typical losers that exist everywhere (thanks to the union). Hopefully the new Principal will impact these slackers who teach so they have summers off. They look/act like their jobs are a joke and harrass the kids daily due to their own personal misery. The new Principal is a long overdue, welcomed change. It's unlikely she'll tolerate the staus quo and will fix whatever messes the previous principal ignored or was afraid to address. Doubt she'll participate in the quid pro quo that's been so prevalent nor teach to the test for the coveted, competitive school ratings while pushing the kids beyond reason. Cookies, candy, no bathroom breaks, teacher stapling arm, belittling, fear, humiliation, homework due to time wasted during the day and deliberate indifference. Yep, it's all here and hopefully gone with the new Principal........."

    "Its location is the best perhaps in whole California. Its name is great: Torrey Pines. The principal is great (Mr. Solo). Kids are great. Teachers are good. It is heterogeneous. It is the future of primary school in my opinion. I have 2 kids there and they are happy."

    "I am surprised to hear negative comments about the school and the principal. Mr. Solo is out every single morning greeting students by name, talking to parents, directing traffic, picking up items for the lost and found, etc. He is completely dedicated to the school and has high standards for his staff and students. The teachers are competent and compassionate. My son is thriving and is reading well ahead of other kids his age that attend other schools. The parents of the other students are involved and friendly. Each of them knows my child and we all sort of look after each other. It is a fantastic, positive atmosphere. I don't know of a school out there that is not focused on test scores... until we change this backward system, that is what it is going to be like. I feel really lucky to have my son here."
