    "I really wish I could give Loma Verde a high rating, but I can't. If your child is learning English then yes, this school has benefits, but if you are expecting a quality education and your child to be more than a number or a dollar sign, I'd highly recommend going private. It's true that there is a dedicated PTG group but it consists of a small group of parents who do everything since overall parental involvement is practically nonexistent. Why the high rating then? My bets are on a small group of parents who REALLY want Loma Verde to succeed and do well. Is it though? Not really. Not if you don't want your kid to get lost in the crowd. It's a struggling school and it's fighting to not be, but it is far from being 5 stars- it lacks in academics, a caring and nurturing environment, structure, and parental involvement."

    "Our family loves Loma Verde! That is why we are so sad to be moving away. I had my doubts about LV when my son was about to start kindergarten. I was told by parents (who were note LV parents) about the school not being good enough. I took a tour and also toured other schools and I was impressed with LV and what it had to offer. Plus the principal was clearly engaged with the students and faculty and it was clear that she really cared about the school. Two years later, we are still here. Ms. Kraft and Ms. Mcmorrow are amazing teachers! Ive never heard a parent complain about their child's teacher. The other great thing about the school is the parent involvement. Parents chip in any way they can. Whether its helping the students get out of the car in the mornings, volunteering in the classroom or school fundraisers. The PTA does a great job of supporting the school's needs too. We can't say enough good things about this school!"

    "Loma Verde is a tremendous school both in academics and culture. Hundreds of families will tell you just how great it is. The children leave here enriched and well prepared for the next level of schooling. The school culture is fantastic. Students have been noted by the District as being better prepared due to the excellent academic program. Loma Verde is widely considered one of the best schools around."

    "Fabulous Principal with a wonderful understanding of the needs of her diverse school which serves everyone including children with disabilities and non english families. This little school manages to serve breakfast to all, find fresh vegetable for those who need, great teachers who care about the kids and innovative methods to enrich everyone."

    "Loma Verde is an incredible school. Rigorous academics, welcoming and nurturing environment with highly qualified and experienced teaching staff. The Principal was awarded "principal of the year" in Marin County for good reason. The culture has produced amazing results and progress. Some of the best scores in the state when sub groups are compared. The below comment about a kid "getting lost in 3 months" sounds like sour grapes. 12 weeks? No way. The partnerships that are formed in the classroom foster a progressive and well developed curriculum with defined results. These are evident in the API progress being made. But Loma Verde goes beyond testing and develops the whole child with Gardening, Track, Music, Technology and other enrichment programs. You will be hard pressed to find a more well rounded elementary education (public or private) in Marin Cty."
