I had read several negative reviews about this school, so we tried to avoid buying a home zoned for Ocotillo Ridge. We ended up having no choice (very limited house inventory). This school is wonderful. The principal is the most professional, kind person. Her children attend the school. The students and teachers adore her. The teachers work extremely well together and don't waste a second of the day. Misbehavior and disruption are not tolerated. The school runs like a well-oiled machine. Positivity and kindness abounds. The school takes gifted education very seriously and also makes enrichment efforts for those advanced students who don't quite make the gifted score cut-off. The school is also excellent at addressing the needs of those students who learn at a slower pace or are academically challenged, providing special education teachers, additional instruction, and tutoring. They have a well-established reteach and enrich program tailored to each students's learning pace. I could not be happier with this school.
