    "My son started Kinder at this school and is now in 2nd grade here. The teachers, staff and principal have all been extremely wonderful and caring. With regards to the poster about lunch being too short, my son never comes home hungry. I do pack his lunch and maybe once a week he'll bring home his dessert. He occasionally asks a to eat the lunch served there. We have attended lunch time with him and the time to eat is fine. The curriculum in the classroom is great. They have taught my son things in Kinder & 1st that I don't recall learning until much later. They really push the students to be the best at everything. I'm impressed! When we moved out of district we chose to transfer him back to Rolando. We hope to continue his elementary education with Rolando to the end."

    "My daughter is moving on to middle school so this is our last year at Rolando. It has been an amazing 7 years filled with creative, encouraging, and kind teachers. The principal and office staff have been amazing in every way. Rolando was just awarded the California Distinguished School award and we couldn't be prouder. Thanks Rolando for a wonderful elementary school experience!!"

    "My son started kindergarten last year and it was a very tough transition and sort of continues to be. He has grown out of some issues and has some lingering issues. He loves to learn, loves to interact, is an only child, has tons of energy... we thought he might be heading toward an IEP direction. Rolando's faculty really came to the table and together we formed an action plan that we continue to follow and this been helping my son without an IEP. I think this school has been incredible, resourceful, open and available for a successful outcome. Going thru the proper channels, meeting really qualified, great folks along the way for the best cause: education! Wonderful PTA, Room Moms and special events too!"

    "My husband and I are both elementary teachers in San Diego Unified, both our children attend Rolando. This is a wonderful school. The parent participation, the diverse student population, and the engaged school staff have created a positive environment that not only challenges our children to be dedicated learners, but encourages them to be thoughtful, contributing members of society as well. Go peacebuilders! I understand the time constraints in terms of scheduling and curriculum requirements which all schools must balance. Rolando's dedicated staff juggles it all beautifully. If ever we've had concerns, the staff has been open and willing to work with us. This school has such a great vibe, it's the kind of school I'd want to work at myself. Therefore, I'm thrilled to have my children work there! Schools don't get "CA Distinguished School Awards" for nothing--they earned it."
