    "I am a parent of two Merlinda students. Merlinda was an excellent school before Mrs. Gonzalez stepped in as principal. She has virtually gutted every program the students enjoyed at Merlinda. The school has gone from one that welcomed parents to one that is hostile towards parents on campus. Nothing is done about bullying, she ignores parent requests and suggestions. NO ONE is out supervising in front of the school in the morning. I wish WCUSD would remove this incompetent and place a professional at Merlinda because she is doing a disservice to the school and the community."

    "Merlinda is an excellent school! The teachers are caring and compassionate, as well as professional. They have high standards and my child has excelled at this school. I have been nothing but happy ever since my child began attending Merlinda. Thank you!"

    "The olny thing I don't like is the librarian . She is very mean . One day I went to the library after school and I had my phone and she said to put it away so I put it on vibrate and put it away . I was getting my books when my mom called me and it started ringing . The librarian you any have it on but I was talking to my mom and I said wait to both of them and she said you can't tell me to wait so I hung up . So then I explained to the librarian that I thought it was on vibrate . But she still let me get my books"

    "My daughter was previously attending a school where the teacher was so negative and demeaning that my daughter's grades went from outstanding to poor by the end of the year. I enrolled her at Merlinda and she excelled. The teachers have a "team effort" mentality and are very supportive. The staff works hard to meet the needs of all the students. My daughter's fifth and sixth grade teachers not only cared about her educational needs, but also cared about her social and emotional well being."
