    "My daughter is in third grade at San Joaquin, she's been a Cheetah since Kindergarten, and we absolutely love it. The school and staff have really worked hard to increase the quality of the experience for the kids over the last couple of years, and it's showing in my daughter's development. Her teacher last year REALLY pushed her to excel in areas she was falling behind on, and by the end of the year she was an honor roll student. Her teacher this year is just as great. The principal has always taken my concerns very seriously, and she really cares about the well being of the kids, and wants them to do well. Any issue I've had has been resolved immediately. The school is also proactive about offering bullying prevention seminars. The after school TLC program is also top notch - Rhea and her staff have become like family. They help my daughter with her homework every day, and do a great job at giving the kids creative outlets and activities, which is such a big help to working parents like me. My little one is happy and receiving an excellent education at San Joaquin, and I couldn't give it a higher recommendation."

    "San Joaquin is a wonderful school! The only reason Great Schools has given it a 4 is because of outdated test scores. This is the same reason it is labeled "Program Improvement". This rating is based on standardized tests from years ago; tests not even given in the state of California anymore. San Joaquin has worked hard, and their teachers, curriculum, and resources are top notch. Come take a tour of this awesome school and see for yourself the learning that happens when you are a San Joaquin cheetah!"

    "My sons were in kinder and 6th grade last year at San Joaquin, and my youngest will be continuing at the school for first grade. Both of them had extremely positive experiences. My sixth grader was able to participate in afterschool track and field, and the school even offers chess and art too. His teacher, Mr. Fowler, was a great role model for him to look up to--he managed the classroom very well, and LOVED being there with the students. My kinder had Mrs. Von Luft and flourished throughout the year. The school has started an enrichment time every morning for students who speak only English, while bilingual students get leveled English Language Development. I am excited to see how this enrichment class will challenge my soon to be first grader! I highly recommend San Joaquin to any parent in Laguna Hills. Awesome experiences!"

    "My daughter has attended this school for k-2. Her teachers have been great so far. The principal on the other hand, has been horrible. She doesn't listen to the parents, she looks down on them. This school spends money on the English language learner kids, and on anti bullying, and, my daughter has been bullied so much this last year. There is not proper supervision on the playgrounds. I hope to have my daughter elsewhere next year!"

    "MY daughter is currently in sixth grade at San Joaquin. She has attended San Joaquin since kindergarten. She qualified for a GATE school in first grade but we decided to keep her at San Joaquin. We have been very happy with this school. All of her teachers have been great! They have all provided her with an excellent education and have been very caring and concerned. There is a nice small community feeling at San Joaquin too. We highly recommend this school!"
