    "I used to be at this school for 4 years sadly i moved before my 5th year. I remembering loving this school. The teachers are super advanced and very polite and nice and you will not find any other teachers and principal who will pay more attention the students than this school."

    "Fiesta Gardens Intl School is an extraordinary school. We feel incredibly fortunate that our kids are able to attend a dual-immersion language school from which fifth graders graduate fully bilingual and biliterate in Spanish and English -- and it's a public school! The teachers have received advanced training, the campus is wonderful, and one of my favorite things about the school is the common dress policy, which allows the students to focus on what's important. Fiesta Gardens Intl School hosts numerous colorful events throughout the year which celebrate the multi-cultural focus of the school -- our favorite is Fiesta Hispana, the food is nearly all home made and is awesome! While it's true that having your kids enrolled in a bilingual immersion school requires a little extra work on behalf of the students, families, and faculty, we've found that these groups at Fiesta Gardens are united in the conviction that speaking two languages and promoting appreciation of various cultures is a must-have for the next generation. And I have seen first-hand how this creates a unique community at Fiesta Gardens that continues well beyond the primary years."

    "My son's experience at Fiesta Gardens has been wonderful! Even though there are 490+ students, I always felt that the entire staff was looking out for his well-being. I was routinely told about things that had happened at school from teachers who hadn't even had him as a student. The teaching staff works together to provide the best education for all students. Under the pricipal's strong leadership, I think the staff is moving in the right direction. While the upper grades have larger class sizes, I do not feel that either of my kids' teachers are at all "mechanical or sarcarstic". They care deeply about the job they do and it shows."

    "I think this school is excellent. I have a 3rd grader who loves the school and the teachers. She understands and speaks Spanish with no help from home because we only speak English.I would recommend this school to everyone. I am very satisfied with the teachers and staff at Fiesta Gardens!!"

    "Overall a great school that feels like a true community. Teachers at the lower elementary grades (K, 1st) are great, but higher grades are weaker. I've heard 5th grade teachers are awesome, but have no personal experience. The school has a VERY diverse population and many of the incoming students have little or no preschool experience. The low API score of the school reflects that. Teaching can be a little mechanical and uninspired, especially in math and science, however kids are truly bilingual by the time they graduate. School desperately lacks money and there are no after school enrichment activities offered. Parental involvement is very lopsided, with 10% of the parents (usually the non-minority ones) doing 90% of the volunteering"
