10/23/2011parentAs a parent who comes from a school that was lacking to say the least I love this school. My daughter has an awesome teacher and the principal and vice seem very involved and caring. They stand outside before and after school, which is nice so that parents can easily approach them if we have a need. Overall this is a wonderful school.
10/15/2010parentloved this school until this year. New principal, who is making a lot of uneccesary changes that have a lot of parents upset. Quality of teachers and education seems to be declining. Just got a letter stating this school is in the IP (improvment program) according to the state. For the first time in 3 years since my children have been attending Ocotillo, I am very disappointed.
5/26/2010parentMy child started Ocotillo in Kindergarten and now she is moving on to the second grade. All her teachers have been very nice. Ocotillo gives lots of reading assigments which has helped her become a very good reader. I really like that the school introduces the kids to classwork that other local schools do not. The different writing assignments and reading. It is an exceptional school especially for it being public.
5/13/2010parentOcotillo has an amazing staff of teachers, administrators, and parents!!
4/5/2010parentOcotillo Elementary is a safe a naturing environment for children. I has a great leadership and a wonderful group of committed teachers.
11/20/2009parentEvery teacher is different and every kid has different learning needs. But I have had 3 kids at Ocotillo (two are now at Juniper) and am very proud to say they are all A-B students. Yes my husband and I are very active in their school work but I owe alot to these teachers. Just think they have 30+ kids to teach and I have helped in the classes and it is hard work to keep them all on task. I give this school all 5 stars thanks to this school I have kids that love to learn, so thank you Ocotillo!!
11/9/2009parentOcotillo is the best public elementary school in town! The principal is top-notch and the teachers outstanding. All three of our youngest children have attended or are attending this great elementary school.
10/20/2009parentOcotillo staff, students and parents are the best. We have the most experienced, caring teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure every student is learning every day.
10/1/2009parentThis is not a good school, let's be honest. The STAR test shows 50% of students score at basic or below basic level. My son goes to school and everyday he comes home he tells me what they were working on that day, then I roll up my sleeves and teach him. They can't teach him anything. His scores are good but I take credit for that. The school is the best in Palmdale School District but PSD is already at the edge of a cliff. Don't expect miracles here. The bottom line is the only thing they care about.
9/28/2009parentI have three kids that have gone to Ocotillo ( one still attends) and I think this school is wonderful if you take advantgage of what they have to offer your kids. Anytime I had a problem they listened and fixed it. I give this school 5 stars. My sons are in the AVID program now at Juniper thanks to Ocotillo and all have a 3.5 GPA and above! THANKS!!!

4/29/2006parentNice campus. Quality Teachers. Good special ed staff. Good discipline. High parent involvement. School-Home communication could be better.
4/28/2006parentOcotillo Elementary School is one of the finest elementary school in the Antelope Valley. There is a clear committment by teachers and staff to have these elementary students succeed and thrive in upper learning. There is a variety of programs available for students that need extra tuitoring in subjects they might be a risk at failing. The level of dedication felt at this school by administrators, staff, and parents is refreshing. I am a mother of 3 boys and all my children have attended the exceptional school.
10/6/2005parentI think this is a wonderful school. all 3 of my boys have attended this school. The taschers are caring and the principle is very helpful. I highly recommend.
9/8/2005parentAcademics are great! No sports teams but there is music. Great parent involement.
9/6/2005parentGreat school. Good teachers. I have two children at this school. I cannot give the teachers enough credit. My son's 5th grade teacher was sooo hard but he cared and prepared my son for 6th grade.
6/1/2005parentSchool is ok. Coming from Ventura County I was really disappointed in the public schools here. It seems there is not enough teacher/parent contact. No real response to problems my child has had with other students and a lack of supervision. Very unsafe procedures and area for child pick up/drop off. Other than that the education provided seems average at best. I have children in 1st & 3rd grades. Will be looking into private schools in the near future!
7/28/2004parentThe school is one of the best in palmdale. They have wonderful teachers.
6/19/2003  The teachers at Ocotillo Elementary really care for the student and go the exrat mile.
