    "Both of our boys attendedSonora & are now succeeding in middle/high school. Many Sonora graduates go on to be campus leaders in high school. My boys got an excellent foundation to build on. They were always placed with classes or groups to challenge them and help them develop to their ability. Because music and the arts are a priority at Sonora, they experienced a well rounded education. Finally, the parent involvement is huge and makes a difference. Whether through PTA, Dads Club, or just supportive parents & grandparents, Sonora families know how much the help and involvement makes a difference. Sonora students are College bound!"

    "My child did not get the individual attention he required. It seemed that the teacher just wanted him to fail."

We love the teachers, staff, programs, extracurricular activities, PTA, and so much more! We are blessed to be at this school! Thank you, Sonora teachers! We just got our children's test scores, and all we can say is, "JOB WELL DONE!!" ADVANCED in all areas! This CA Distinguished School is outstanding!"

    "So if you are into fund raising this school is for you... My daughters teacher was Ok. However as a parent I was not really kept informed as to what was happening at the school so much t the point that i had no idea they had picture day until the pictures came home.. I was lucky i did my daughters hair that day.. She is in Kinder so you would think you would not leave important information in the hands of 5 and 6 year old children, but they do. The Principal great on the other hand bent over back wards to help my family out too bad she was no the teacher."
