I am not impressed with our new principal. Seems much more concerned with being liked and making friends than doing the job given. What happened to professionalism?

Wood Ranch has professional teachers and staff. I have found the principal and administrative staff to be very responsive and efficient in handling my concerns. The Wood Ranch School provides an environment that is conducive with healthy growth in every area of child development and social interaction. We are very pleased to have our son attending.

Great School ! Both my kids go to this school and love it !! The school is super clean with strong PTA involvement. Each year the PTA raises $20K that goes towards school improvement and educational trips for kids. I have found the teachers to be very suppotive of the students and maintain a great rapport with the parents ! I highly recommend it !!

Many lazy teachers at this school. My daughter got very lucky and had wonderful teachers her whole 5 years there. My son on the other hand, not so lucky. The teachers he has had are lazy and expect the parents to teach rather then the teacher. She comes home with homework that is never even gone over in class. Information is given the day before tests and parents are expected to teach them the night before. Also, so many of the teachers are old and do not want to be there anymore and it is obvious in their teaching. PTA asks for money from each of the families but each year does not use it for the kids. No one really knows what happens to this money.

My children are students at Wood Ranch Elementary and they are doing fabulous. They are not gate either. They get the attention they need and the teachers stay connected to the parents. This year the school started with a new Principal. Wow am I surprise on how involved she is. She comes to every family event interacts with parents and children to make everyone feel welcome and special. She has an incredible open door policy and take constructive comment seriously. The PTA is very strong with their involvement. They do a phenomenal job at fund-raising and choose to spend wisely for the children. In this day in age finding an incredible public school may be hard but I'm glad to be here at Wood Ranch Elementary for my children's public education.

My child went to Wood Ranch a few years ago. I had to pull the child out because of bullying - not from children but from teachers. If your child is a hand in lap, wait your turn type of student, he or she will be fine. If not, our feeling was to have them challenged else where.

We have been very happy with this school. We find Mr. Todo to be extremely reasonable and open to parent discussion with an appointment. I have found the same to be true of the teachers. I think there may be some sour grapes from parents who feel they don't get to "run" the school and demand certain unimportant things and have the staff and principal roll over and allow it. The PTA is strong and has great activities for the students and families. This is a strong school with a strong vision and it is reflected in the high caliber expectations. :)

This school is fantastic. We are very happy here, and are impressed with both the academics and the administration. There are now more extro-curricular activities available which is good. Yes, they cost extra, but it's the times we live in. We are fortunate to have access to such a great public school.

Wood Ranch is a solid, well performing school in a state that unfortunately does not value high quality education. The system does not incentivize for better teacher performance, and this is why you see good and bad teachers, even at Wood Ranch. I don't believe it helps teacher morale or shows respect to the principal when they have to deal with parents who complain about things like whether their kids can sit with their friends at lunch. The focus should be about education, and I'd rather the teachers and principal focus their time and energy on that. Wood Ranch's challenges are no different than any other school's, but we are lucky to have a great community with good families to supplement the system. I would definitely rate Wood Ranch above average, without a doubt.

We loved the school and the teachers before Mr. Todo took over. The teachers my children have had and have this year have all been great! They all have cared deeply about all the children and communicate very effectively with the parents. Mr. Todo the principal who took over in 2009, cut back the Friday school assembly, won't allow siblings to watch each others performances during school hours, and makes up other idiotic rules that seem to just be to demonstrate his powers. When confronted his usual response is "THIS IS MY SCHOOL!" For this school year he decided that the children should not be allowed to eat lunch with their friends but instead be forced to sit at assigned tables. Most staff and parents agree that this is ridiculous and counter to the the general principles of child development.

We are very happy with Wood Ranch Elementary School. The teachers are caring and supportive, as is the rest of the staff. They may not initiate unnecessary contact with parents, but we like that, as the PTA does not run the school. The teachers go above and beyond for the kids and challenge students who need challenging. Go Wildcats!
