    "This year is our first year at school. Our daughter was enrolled to kindergarten class. Transition from preschool was very smooth and easy. Our daughter had no problems with adaptation. Every day she is excited of her school experience and waiting for the next lesson. Kids are free to seat on the carpet and play developing games and toys. Teacher knows the job and able to keep children's attention and interest in learning. At first sight, school is well equipped. And, what is the most important, here is a great enthusiastic community, many volunteers and after school activities."

    "I said below what a hard time we had a Fox. Today we went for our first day and it was Awesome. They did a remodel and landscaped, looks very nice.I had a good feeling after leaving and my kid was so happy at pick up, so I'm looking forward to a great year."

    "To the response below. Don't judge parents how have negative review to this school. Not everybody has a chance to volunteer and participate in school life. Parents who volunteer simply has time to do it and some don't. And it doesn't mean your child have to be left behind if you parents struggle to keep with need. We went from kindergarten through 5th grade and saw great teachers who really care and some who simply do nothing. This school deserved 3 stars."

    "At Fox, we have parents who are doer & parents who are complainers. If u take an active role in your child s education, u will get so much out of this school. This school is a hidden gem. Credit goes to the hard work parents do to offer free extracurricular activities for kids, either in a form of financial assistance and/or volunteer hrs. Teachers have a leg up at Fox b/c they have parents that make their job easier by essentially being their unpaid teacher s assistants. These parents are the heart & soul of this school. You don t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that teachers are more responsive to these parents who support them. You can call it favoritism but I say they earn that right. Just think from the Teacher s perspective if all u do is complain & think they s/b able to wave a magic wand. How would u conduct yourself in that situation? The principle is great too. Always found him to follow through on his words. To the parent who said her son s classroom was disgusting, sorry but it s not that difficult to make a fuss. Don t pat yourself on the back by saying u were the first to complain. Words are easy but hard work makes a lasting impression."

    "As with any organization, there's a percentage of team members who are highly-motivated and inspiring and who try to propel the students above the CA average. There's also a perecentage of teachers who are simply doing their job - teaching the standards - which is what some parents want. Depending on your objectives (academically rigorous vs. standard), the teacher you get, and the abilities of your student, your experience will vary. We expect above-average academics given the demographic of the school and our experience has been generally good so far. Could it be better? Sure, there's lots of room for improvement in every California school. On the upside, this school is a gem in lot ways...boutique size, good school community of talented and involved parents, generally strong test scores, school-wide activities give children many opportunities to be exposed to different areas of learning: Science (Science Fair), Performing Arts (Foxtravaganza), Gardening, Recycling, Music programs, Art, Read-a-Thon, and more. Principal may not be a powerhouse administrator, but he does interact well to the students and he tries to teach them concepts like responsibility, kindness, and respect."
