    "After having my son here for 3 years now, I have to say I'm not too thrilled about this school. I thought moving to Temecula Unified meant great opportunities, but for the past few years it has been nothing but disappointment. This year my sons' teacher is ok, but the others were clearly just doing their job. We moved here from a San Diego IB school, and the quality of education are world's apart between the two. The classes are crowded, so expect the teachers to be overwhelmed. The principal puts up a friendly front, but if you email her she will generally forward the inquiry to someone else rather than respond to you directly. If your child is a GATE student, forget about any sort of enrichment opportunities. All they do is gather for 2 field trips on non-school days twice a year. Teacher's are supposed to give GATE students more "challenging work" but we have not had a single teacher who has attempted to do this. Maybe they're overwhelmed. It's such a shame that there is no pull out program in place or similar. On the bright side, the staff is fantastic. Catherine Alm is nothing short of amazing. PTA is great. Wish they would use social media to keep us informed more though."

    "I just moved to the Temecula area and can not say enough great things about Rancho. The principal Ms. May is completely involved and has such a friendly fun loving spirit. The office staff, especially Catherine Alm, is amazingly busy but always has time to smile and answer questions. The PTA is active with down to earth parents (both moms and dads) and the kids really make life long memories at the events the PTA sponsor. The teachers...all I can say is, "WOW!" These teachers love their job, they love their kids and their efforts go above and beyond. I truly believe that this IS the best school in Temecula. I have lived in Northern Va. and Frisco, Tx which have good schools as well but Rancho has that extra special "something." Oh and I have 4 kids that go here so I am covering ALL ages from K to 5th!"

    "My daughter had an amazingly awesome experience at Rancho Elementary School following several years of private school. The teachers really seem to go out of their way to find interesting and fun ways to teach their classes and were readily available after school if the child needed extra help. Parent volunteers were always welcome. The positive attitudes and encouraging words of the entire faculty does wonders to build-up the self esteme of the student body. We loved this school!!"

    "Though I'm sure that there are worse places to be, I was very dissatisfied with the way this school is run. My child did ok in class but when it was time to promote him up I was told that he should repeat his grade. I've learned that the schools actually have a high retention rate in order to inflate their test scores. I'll be careful of choosing the next school solely on published testing scores."

    "Rancho Elementary school is a great solid school for any child to attend. The teachers, staff and principal are always supportive of the students. In addition, parental involvmenet is encourage and respected. The teachers do a really wonderful job with each child. The only issue I see is that children with special needs are not really provided with everything they need-but that is district wide not just at Rancho. For those who require their teachers to dressdifferently-they are working with children and although its important to dress in a respectable manner, they do. Lastly, its a safe school and you can rest assure they know who is coming and going."
