Hermosa Valley Elementary School provides nothing but a poor education and a dejecting learning environment. The classes offered are basic. The teachers backgrounds are questionable. The students there are cruel and cliquey. I definitely do not recommend this school. It's a very close-minded environment, where they only meet California standards.
