    "There are many outstanding teachers at Miwok, we have never been disappointed. There are so many nice families and a strong PTA. I hope to see more diversity in the classrooms, hopefully more people will be attracted to the opportunity to learn new languages."

    "I just had one child finish his 7th year at Miwok! As with every school there are excellent teachers and those less desired! I have another child entering 5th and would not change a thing!Test scores have to do with diversity and parent involvement! Yes Miwok does have a low income population,but while that may effect test scores it does not reflect on the excellent teachers , staff, and PTA.I have to say that I have one child that needs constant help and follow through to achieve academics while the other does not! If you are not highly involved in your child's education do not blame the school or teacher, they can not do it all. While yes Miwok may be short on funding I have to say that both my children have and are getting a great education."

    "I wanted my daughter to go to a private school, but my husband convinced me to ignore the test scores and give Miwok a chance. Today, my daughter is in 4th grade and we are still at Miwok, and I can't wait until my little daughter starts at Miwok too. I am so glad that I listened to my husband and proud to be a Miwok parents. I don't think any private school will have the amazing teachers and staff that we have at Miwok. With addition to the excellent level of education, the diversity at Miwok opening my daughters eyes and mind to the other cultures around the world . At Miwok, she learned by interacting everyday with kids from different countries, that the world doesn't end at the boards of united states. She is getting an amazing and excellent level of education, at Miwok."

    "Our child has struggled due to what now appears to be a learning disability, and the teachers are absolutely uninvolved, and unconcerned. We were told that we needed to practice flash cards more with our daughter so she could learn her addition facts, but little more. We were practicing, she was just having trouble anyway. The school never suggested testing, teachers were vague about her problems. This year, she gets a satisfactory on everything on her report card despite a clear lack of comprehension, while we get virtually no homework or tests back. We believe it is never corrected. We have finally taken our daughter to a doctor for testing, although the school is legally obligated to do it. The teacher is indifferent, and blames everything on the large class. We couldn't even get a textbook for her tutor. This school has poor leadership and more, and is making excuses - the tight budget. The test scores are not the problem, who cares about those. The problem is that there appears to be little guidance for the teachers, low engagement by the teachers, and the good teachers are there, but few, and overwhelmed by the lack of help from admin. Find a different school. Terrible."

    "My son is in Kindergarten in the Miwok Dual Immersion program. I volunteer in the classroom regularly and have been very pleased with the quality education he is receiving. The classroom is large and more than adequately stocked with books, toys, teaching materials, etc. His two Kindergarten teachers are wonderful and he loves them. He is progressing well in all subject areas and we feel he is receiving an above average education. He is learning everything that his peers are learning at other schools in addition to becoming bilingual and bi-literate. We have a great group of involved parents and we parents and our children are making cross cultural friendships. We are so pleased that the Old Adobe Union School District decided to provide such a wonderful program for our children and our community."
