    "This review is only for the 1st grade teacher in room 10 only! We have had nothing but problems with this teacher since day one! The first thing she said at Back to School Night was she will not and refuses to teach the Common Core Curriculum! I understand that our education system is broken but she can at least put an effort into teaching our children. She did said she teaches her way and no other way! She's NOT the warm and fuzzy kinda of person at all! She's very RUDE and yells at the kids per my daughter! She has said inappropriate comments and my daughter is afraid to ask for help because she talks in such a mean tone. She's never has anything positive to say in any situation! She REFUSES to let the class participate in any school activities like having any classroom Holiday Parties, Grandparents Day, Scholastic reading program, ect. She will not even allow us parents to volunteer in her classroom. I find that very odd! I recently have found out (per past parents) that we are not the only parents that have serious concerns with this teacher and the principal refuses to do anything about our concerns. My next step is going to the district and filing a formal complaint."

    "My daughter has had ups and downs just like any child at school. She was bullied a couple times during the years she's attended. However, I brought it to the attention of the front desk who notified the Assist Principle Mrs. Konecni and everything was taken care of. I wasn't expecting it to be handled so well.. She's easy to talk to and got to the bottom of it. She has a box where the kids can write her notes if they need help. My daughters teachers have been great. She is above average in school. She hasn't had a teacher who yells but she knows who those teachers are and she's greatful for never being in their class.. I'm giving the school a 5 star rating for our experience, because the school has been good to us. I think that they can improv, by addressing the bullying before it happens and more often during every day before recess and lunch. I do think the school has improved since Mrs. Konecni has been there with this issue though."

    "My son attended Tuscany Hills for two years and he had a great experience! We recently moved to Orange county and we really miss Tuscany hills elementary and its wonderful teachers. The principal , Mr. Marks, is very involved and works very hard to make Tuscany hills elementary one of the top schools in Riverside county with the highest API score. My son's first grade teacher, Mrs. Zarillo, is an amazing teacher: very talented, very patient with children, has a great sense of humor and always enthusiastic and organized. My son improved his math and reading skills and was reading at the third grade level by the end of first grade! Thank you for all your hard work, Mrs. Zarillo, I really appreciate it and I wish there were more teachers like you!"

    "Love this school!! I have 3 kids currently in the school & have been going there for 4 years. Every teacher we've had has been amazing! They truly care about my children & their education. The PTA is like no other I have ever experienced & the involvement by the parents makes this school extra-special with the mother-son skating night, father-daughter dance, grandparents day, the plays, the band, 100 mile club, Reflections art program, movie night, ice cream social & much more. My youngest had a bullying issue with another student on the bus & after only 1 phone call to the VP, the issue was handled & it has never happened again. The Principal Mr. Marks, called me personally to let me know the outcome & to make sure everything was OK! When does that ever happen in a school? He runs a tight ship which is essential, but can also be seen joining in on the pie eating contest or running in the 100 mile club in the mornings along with the students. The school nurse & office staff are always helpful & friendly. My kids have excelled academically & are all above grade level & that is a direct result of their teachers. This school is hands down 1 of the best elementary schools around!"

    "My daughter had the worst experience at this school. She was bullied on a regular basis. I have never in my entire life have seen so many kids with so many behavioral issues! I came to the school with my concerns and they turned it around on her! Telling her if she was just more outspoken that she we wouldn't all be here discussing this. If THEY did their job supervising the children, we all wouldn't be there! Instead of managing the problem he turned it around on the child. Teacher she had, screamed in the class at the children. Apparently she held tenure so we were stuck with her. We tried to have our daughter changed to another classroom, again just the same run around. Never before or after our being at that school have we EVER had another issue."
