This school is a real great school. My son Robert has been going here since pre-k. The teachers are real good, even though, you might get a few set in there ways. But as a hole this school, Witter Ranch Elementary, has a great staff of teachers, good office receptionists and plenty more adults volunteering. I can't say anything bad about this school because it's not bad at all. Love this school,RDJr./RDIII
