    "LOVE!!! The new principal Dr. Nagy. Paualrino ES is moving up and out of being a PI school. Leadership is the final puzzle piece for maximum achievement. The One Star reviews are people who expect teachers to their job as a parent. Check Homework, parents job! Reading at Home, parents job! Pick-up child from school, parents job! Over active child, parents job! As for students on the Autistic Spectrum, Paularino is the perfect school for a mainstreamed child who still needs a little support. The whole school is aware, empathetic and supportive of students and families with children who live with ASD."

    "Paularino School is Costa Mesa's best kept secret, a jewel of a school. With focus on character and community, students education has a foundation of respect for everything. The teachers, their support staff, and parents collaborate beautifully and are driven to see Paularino succeed. In addition, the new principal encourages all panthers enthusiasm, drive and focus. Paularino School is FANTASTIC!!! Mission Statement "Every child, every day; learning and growing in every way!" School Cheer "Good Better Best; Never Let It Rest, Until Our Good Is Better And Our Better Is Best!""

    "My family has found Paularino Elementary to be a wonderful school offering a great learning environment with highly qualified and dedicated teachers, a fantastic new principal and very involved staff. Our children are excelling academically and are enjoying many of the amazing additional programs our school offers including music, art, PE and a beautiful learning garden. The after-school programs (some free or very low cost) offer sports, homework help, chess club, nature club, ranch program, etc. all in a very supportive and positive environment. We also love that the school is a Class Act school (Pacific Symphony's flagship youth education program). I would highly recommend Paularino Elementary school to any family with children in preschool - 6th grade. Some programs/awards our school has to also take in consideration: Arts Advantage School, Class Act School, Mentoring USA Partnership, After School Clubs- School Band, Ranch, Nutrition Club, Student Council, Beautiful School Garden Strong Family Involvement, On Site Preschool, Nature Club, Green Wednesday- recycle, reuse and more!, PTA- Family Nights, Project Success, Costa Mesa City ROCKS program"

    "Paularino is a Need Improvement school for many reasons. My child's 1st report card-child is below grade level. 2nd report-child is far below grade level. The principal wrote meeting reading goals is Expected, without improvement child will be held back. My child did worst? After 1st report we were concerned & placed our child in Project Success. I was told they will help with homework & improve on reading. My child comes home with incomplete work & some are wrong. My child says there is no reading involved & when I pick up my child, it's like a sloppy day care. I help my child correct the errors & finish the incomplete work. We read 30 min, 5-6 days a week & I'm not a teacher & that doesn't leave us with much family time. My child tells me school is boring & the teachers are not nice. They should ask themselves, Why are the students failing? What are we (the teachers) doing? What can we do to improve? How can we help these kids? You cannot just Expect a child to just do better. You are the educator. These children are in your hands to learn when they are at school. Stop blaming the kids when your school Needs to Improve on the way they educate these kids in the 21st century."

    "My son is in Kindergarten & not to happy. Academically, my son brings home classwork that are halfway done & mainly with colored pictures of every classmates every week, very strange. As far as the review regarding the pick-up. I must agree that it is very unorganized. Parents including strangers stand all around the lawn while teachers are in the driveway. The teacher would walk the children to the lawn & head off to the driveway. The children stand or sit at the lawn with no adult supervision. So I always show up extra early but it does scare me that there are lots of strangers standing around the lawn. we will be moving next year so I will transferring my son out of here."
