    "Coming from a school where the office staff rolls their eyes at you when you walk in, the charter director walks past parents with questions, a new principal every year, finding out your child's teacher was hired two days before school started. I am excited for my kids who are now attending Dos Rios. The principal seemed courteous, he was in front greeting everyone and helping find class rooms. The office staff was busy, but really nice. I have no complaints about Dos Rios. I'm giving a two star rating, I hope to come back at the end of year to give my full input."

    "I am very disappointed in the way this school works. The most minor incidents result in suspensions. what happened to lunch detentions or after school detentions. They need some help in the disciplinary procedures. The assistant principle is famous for telling you one thing and turning around and saying she never said that. Please be sure to get it in writing!!! Just saying! And the teachers! Dont get me started. I believe they all need some kind of child care class before becoming a teacher. My phone rings off the hook at work or my email alerts keep coming. Schools are suppose to be designed to teach our children and be basically their 2nd home. So tell me why this school has no control over their kids? It is ridiculous. The principle seems like a good guy but i have yet to see him take initiative in fixing these problems. Then i hear from another parent that they have 5th and 6th grade students together in one class. That doesn't fly with me at all. I would never have moved into this neighborhood if i knew about this sight. i would have read these previous reviews and looked for a house elsewhere. This school is unbelievable, unprofessional and out of control."

    "We are very excited for this school year. I am over all very impressed with the principal. I love seeing that my children are greeted every morning with a smile and a how are you today. He is now doing the cross walk in the after school. I would like to invite every parent to come out and volunteer their time at least once a month. Help out in your child's class, during their luch time, recess, or library . Come out the the school events demonstrated to your children that their school is important to you as well. Help our school, by becoming involved."

    "This school year has started out strong with an excellent group of elementary school teachers! I have been involved here with my children for 4 years now and it is better each year. The school has faced many hurdles and gets over them as they come. There is a horrible lack of parental support at the school and I fear the parents who are not involved are the ones who have the bad experiences. Those of us that are involved are able to see areas that need improvement and when brought up receive good feedback. The 3rd grade teachers rocked on test scores last year (2010-11) but hardly anyone knows that. It gets better year by year, they just need more parental support and understanding about funding issues. Funding is extremely low so the school is coming up with innovative ways to educate our children and doing a pretty good job. So, before you post negative comments sit and think a moment- Did you take the time to get to know the staff and the teachers who spend about 7 hours a day with your child? There are always two sides to every story. Did you talk with other parents who know the staff and teachers and might have dealt with the same issue? Investigate before speaking harshly."
