    "Great school! It is very competetive, but kids do well without getting stressed out too much. Teachers do not encourage kids too be too competetive, but many parents are uci proffesers and want there kids to do study all night, even when they are in 3rd grade. The teachers are some of the best teachers in california, most with degrees from schools including UCLA, stanford, and ivy league schools. The houses are expensive, but it is a great neighborhood to be in, Turtle Rock broadmoor particularly. I have lived here for 12 years and my kids are in 7th grade, and they love the schools here. I hope my review is helpful! -Stephenie Chen"

    "Initially, our family concern for the twins was finding a school location that was safe and also finding a school that offered the finest public education within the area. From a grandmother's perspective, I am first of all very pleased to see the twins enjoying school so much. The teachers seem to be extremely dedicated. I am impressed by the emphasis and reward system related to moral values. With regard to improvement, I do see the boy twin struggling with mathmatics and reading, though I realize this may relate to his ability to comprehend. Handwriting skills seem to be somewhat lacking, certainly when compared to when I went to school in Ohio many years ago. On the other hand, I see the twins learning other things in first and second grade, that I didn't learn until years later. Overall, I believe the twins are receiving an excellent education, for which I am very grateful. Thank you."

    "Turtle Rock Elementary is great in terms of parent involvement, teacher excellence,communication and academics, but it has gotten too crowded. 930 kids is too much for this small school. We've been so pleased with the curriculum and the support of the terrific principal and staff, but something's got to give with the class sizes. These rooms were not built for 35 children. I do hope something can be done to alleviate this problem because this school truly rocks in every other way."

    "It is our son's second year at TR and we are very happy about the school and more than everything happy to see how our son enjoys going to school . He is not a native speaker and the 2nd grade teacher, Miss Kliger has been a fantastic help and he finished the year with many outstanding results and achievements."

    "Turtle Rock is an excellent preparatory school, not only academic-wise, but also is great at building excellent character. My son just graduated from 6th grade; since he was just a small boy in Kindergarten, I saw him mature to the wonderful young man he is today, all under the constant care and supervision of his teachers. The school provides a fun-learning environment to help balance out the high academic standards given by the teachers. Every single day, my son came home with a big smile on his face, and was excited to inform me about that day s exciting adventures and learning experiences in his classes, labs, the great PE-program, and the brilliant music curriculum. His teacher made their courses more interesting with things like PowerPoint Presentations, Oral Book Interviews, and Current-Events. When I asked him who his favorite teacher was, he stated, I love all of my teachers . His third grade teacher wrote a touching note to all of her 6th grade graduates. He will never forget the caring principal and loving teachers, and will carry the memory with him forever. I am in no doubt that TRE is the first stepping stone of many, to a successful career, and beyond."
