Pomona Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

October 25, 2013 Submitted by a teacher
The PAWS program inspires and instills in K-5 students the character-building qualities that continue to make America the best nation on earth. Every morning the principal, Mr. Joe Simo, over the intercom asks the children and teachers to stand to repeat PAWS. P--Practice respect; A--Accept responsibility; W--Work hard; S--Stay safe. All day as the students work in classrooms, and throughout the hallways, cafeteria, and playground, teachers and staff congratulate individual students for following the PAWS principles by handing out a laminated Panther Paw as well as handing out a laminated Panther when an entire class is practicing the principles. Students also receive paw stamps they can then redeem at the student store. The program is highly motivating for the students. The most impressive part of the program is that 100% of the teachers and staff engage in and support this program in a consistent manner. During recent parent-teacher conferences, parents praised the program for the positive impact it has had on their children in character building and improved academics. Pomona Elementary is the school of choice for parents in Montrose, Colorado.

I absolutely love this school. It's layout is great and the schedules are awesome! Most teachers are so friendly and wonderful, and they adapt to your child's learning needs and challenges. I am an advanced student and they keep me going strong. The secretaries and nurses are so friendly! But sometimes, you have to tough headaches and other aches out. Not very many sport camps are offered, just so you know, but all classes and extra classes are enjoyable! The only concerns I have is the principal. Ever since we've had the change, he's turned it into boot camp. Teachers are to worried about bad behavior instead if having fun. On top of this, he's trying to bribe us into being good. He has raffles and hands out prizes, but he never let's us do anything fun. We have to raise our hand to be excused from the lunch table, and we're not allowed to do anything out of order. No, we don't have uniforms, but we do have all sorts of fun days! Like Hat Day (bring $1 and you can wear a hat all day, and Pajama Day. We are aloud to play sports, but the field is so run down, and there's gravel everywhere. I would recommend this school greatly, I love it!!!! Sadly, it's my last year here.

Sadly, the change in the principal and changes in the school district policies have really taken the fun out of this school. Teachers' seem to be too concerned about handing out pink slips to students. Students have to raise their hand in the cafeteria to have permission to leave their tables after lunch is finished. Pink slips are handed out as punishment to students behavior. The Watch Dogs program has disappeared. The principal isn't friendly. He seems to be more concerned with maintaining a strict rules based leadership. There is gravel everywhere. If the school had balls for the kids to play with at recess time, they couldn't play anywhere on the asphalt / sidewalks as gravel gets in the way. Try to dribble a ball for basketball in a gravel pit and you'll know what I mean. The school doesn't have a choir. Rarely has an assemblies. When they do hold something in the gymnasium, you can't hear anything as the acoustics are terrible. The secretaries in the front office are great. Some of the teachers are wonderful and others seem to be worn out, at their wits end, tired and don't give off an impression that they like their jobs.

I am moving my children from Pomona after 2 frustrating years of trying to gain the principles support in taking control over the bullying one of my children suffers at the hands of a grade school gang. The principle is completely ineffectual when it comes to dealing with discipline. No doubt this is why the school has a rapidly increasing reputation as a "thug school". A member of the staff personally told me the school is having serious problems with negative student behavior and there is a growing number of "rough students" in the school. Until the principle is willing to step up the plate and deal with the problems, the school will continue to slide down hill. I do not recommend this school.

This school is excellent. It starts with a principal that is professional, caring and dedicated to providing his school children not only with excellent learning skill but also life skills. An front assistant that wears many hats but also keeps our school safe. Teachers who are tops in their profession and should be recognized as such. Great job everyone. Pomona is #1
