    "This school is the most amazing school! The location, the teachers, the parents and children are all kind and brilliant! The one on one attention to the kids, the love of learning that my son has can never be replicated in a public school setting! We choose to pay to have our kids in school now...give them the love of learning that Diegueno creates for the kids! We believe that giving our kids the best future success starts now...and our incredible school models kindness, leadership and supports children to be their own unique leader in the world! I wish I had this school when I was growing up! No school in all of San Diego or Southern California can even compare with our school! My daughter will be joining Kindergarten in the Fall...we love our school!"

    "Diegueno is the village that raised our three sons over a decade. Diegueno shaped our children. All of us. They built a foundation. Shared in our struggles and our victories. Who our three children are, who they are growing up to be, includes the teachers and administration of Diegueno...Is because of them. From a Midsummer's' Night Dream to The Pushcart Wars. From Jane Goodall to Singapore Math to Roman Legions riding horseback on stage. Only Diegueno. The depth of the emotion, the strength of the commitment, the breadth of the love. The confidence we have, the love of poetry and the arts, the passion we have for people and kindness and goodness, for learning and discovery and theater...it all was seeded and nurtured by them. Because they all knew what to give us. And they did. We will be forever grateful for Diegueno Country School."

    "Our family had children at Diegueno for 10 years. During that time, my kids received a fabulous educational foundation that is serving them well in high school, and that they will take with them to college. The environment at the school is incredibly loving and nurturing -- my children really felt that Diegueno was their second home, and the teachers were members of their extended family. They felt respected and challenged, and exceptionally well-prepared for any school they chose to attend afterward. An outstanding experience."

    "From the very first time you see this school, you will know it is unlike any other place around. The environment the faculty and staff have crafted is devoted to the notion of individuality within community, safety within adventure, and love and respect above all else. My children have thrived since arriving at what we really consider to be their home away from home. Of course there are rigorous expectations, but that is part of what I wanted for my children. I think kids are capable of amazing things, when they are given the tools to succeed. Diegueno feeds children with knowledge to grow, loves them with patience to be kind, and holds them up to the light to see themselves develop into strong, intelligent, creative contributors to a greater society."

    "I've been a GATE certified teacher for 12 years.I was disappointed by the lack of rigor provided for students with advanced skills.The teachers are kind,but,the work my kids brought home wasn't reflective of the academically rigorous environment Diegueno claimed to provide.We're now at another private school & the difference in the quality of work is incredible.Comparing the 2 schools has confirmed my belief that Diegueno failed to challenge our kids.Another draw-back is its size.At first, we thought that a small environment would be ideal.Now,while we recognize that a small school may be great for little ones,it isn t for older children.Social opportunities are limited as are important activities such as language,sports & music.Other private schools include these enrichment activities as part of their instructional school day.As far as the admin., we were thoroughly disappointed in the lack of leadership provided by the Cole family & their mishandling of issues relating to students & staff throughout the year.As both an educator & parent, I wouldn't recommend this school to prospective families.I firmly believe you can find a higher quality education elsewhere.We certainly have."
