Mendoza Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I have 3 children that attend this school. One is being tested for a learning disability that the teachers caught early. I am so thankful for the focus that the staff gives and the prompt attention to any bullying present.

Of course I am a parent with a bias however, in my experience, Mendoza is the worst school my child has ever gone to. There is still a bullying problem except it doesn't stem from the kids: it stems from the environment created from the top down which is mainly the 6th grade teachers who create an atmosphere of distrust and anxiety. Bottom line, its the most conservative city in America and there is little funding, the teachers are immature and angry (my child tells me that one of his teachers spends a lot of time on a cell phone during class!), the leadership has no spine, and the work is defined by the most sub-par standards I have ever seen (kids will work on one book report for a whole quarter and nothing else). I am a strong believer in public education, but because of the recent budget cuts to education in Arizona (thanks voters), I strongly believe that this school will be on the chopping block soon. Due to its low enrollment, low testing scores, complaints, and bad leadership, Mendoza is bound to either disappear or go through a major overhaul.

My child has gone to Mendoza for 2 years now and we are taking switching him out for the next school year. Overall, Mendoza is just an average school. However, their bully problem has gotten completely out of hand. My child has been disciplined on several occasions for sticking up for himself while the bully, who started the issues, gets no punishment at all. The homework is completely pointless an non-challenging. So pointless, the teachers dont even review it. They just have the students bring in signed sheets from the parents, saying the homework was done. My phone calls to the teacher this year, are rarely returned and my requests for some kind of assistance with my child being bullied have been completely ignored by Dr Ashton and the teachers. Hopefully, as Dr Ashton continues to grow as a principal he gets a better handle on this stuff.

"I am SO happy to have my child out of Mendoza. There has been a mass exodus from the school. It has changed from a decent school to one of bullies, incompetent teachers and a rude principal who is anything but a ""pal."" The only people thrilled with Mendoza are those who don't live in the neighborhood. There is a large number of Apache Junction kids there now. Many of the those kids bring their prejudices and hardened attitudes to the school. The new principal is so busy trying to stamp out any recognition of what the school used to be, he couldn't be bothered administrating properly. We are RELIEVED to be gone from there. Over the past month, we've run into two other families that left Mendoza AFTER the 2011 school year began. Both families had the same complaint--bullying and no repercussions from admin. Mendoza's test scores have fallen and I believe it has to do with the kids who's parents view school as a daycare. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Mendoza USED to be a great school. It's just not anymore. Don't enroll your kids there unless you need a babysitter and you don't care about education."
