    "LNES suffers from mediocrity. There is a lack of leadership from this new principal, who decides things on a whim (new computers for kids who already have new computers at home?, a new 5th grade teacher one month into the year?), without consideration to parents (unlike Ellen FIne), and believes that she knows best. She runs the school as if it suffers from testing underachievement when in fact, the school needs more support for training teachers (who let children grade their own papers, don't keep track of assignments, and do the minimum for preparing students throughout the year perhaps because the material is hard for them, too), parental involvement (no one joined the PTA this year and room moms are the same moms every year), and kids who are socialized to be bullies in middle school (there is no moral development). I am scared to know how these teachers will survive the common core curriculum. They can't even do the STAR curriculum."

    "Amazing principal who helped start this new school 10 years ago. Each teacher my child has had a great experience here and u can't wait for my next child to begin. My kids started at Montessori and easily transitioned. YMCA after care is right on site and also for summers. Tons of great after school programs: lacrosse, chess, science/math clubs, acting, guitar, and more. Running Club on Fridays, teacher run PE, Art Masters class, parent run library. Super PTA and Foundation. Parents from all around want their kids to go here w the great Principal and super teaching staff!!"

    "This is a wonderful school with caring, smart, energetic teachers and a real sense of community. Many of the kids walk to school and the neighborhood is great. Great parent participation and parent/teacher/principal communication as well."

    "I am incredibly proud to be a parent in the LNES community. Through 26 years of working in the local nonprofit sector, I have seen the full spectrum of leadership, teaching, and school environments in elementary schools across Orange County, and I can confidently say that LNES stands head and shoulders above the rest. Our principal, Ellen Fine, sets the curve for establishing a culture of both academic rigor and excellent character traits and values, all in a warm, supporting and nurturing environment. I only wish we could stay here through high school! :-)"

    "Laguna Niguel Elementary is a wonderful school. As a parent I could not be happier. The teachers are caring and devouted to their students and genuinely love to teach. The school's focus is on providing a warm environment where the students want to come to school and learn. That type of environment is fostered by the school's principal who is extremely accessible and involved with her students. There are a multitude of after school activities and a tremendous amount of parent involvement. My child is flourishing at Laguna Niguel Elementary."
