Great School. My IEP child never met standards on AIMS until his 6th grade. He went to half of 5th and all of 6th grade at Cambridge. I had two boys there and they both did really well. The teachers are kind and dedicated. The principle is fab and the rest of the staff is very helpful and friendly. The other students are generally very holsom and friendly as well

I love this school. This is my daughters first year and it just going so fantastic I couldn't ask for any better. They have a ton of fun family events, the staff is friendly and courteous and they have great after school clubs. The dance club is wonderful. They all get to be involved in extra dance activities such as performing at the state fair, enter into competitions, and they learn a variety of dances and styles. I also love that it is a fairly small school, so all the parents get to recognize and know each other as well as other staff members. It is not just a school but a community. My daughter has learned so much. They have exceeded my expectations and more.

By not putting 1 star i have to say I hate this school, At this school they play favorites, and don't care about kids feelings. The teachers may be educated in math, spelling and reading, but they will never be educated in emotional thoughts which is also important. This school can not get any worse and if you erase this i will know that you are controlling what stays on and goes off I have you figured out, i was a STUDENT or as they might call me a MINION but i got out of there at the end of fourth grade. i had been there since kindergarten and i never imagined that it could get so bad. I think you know who this is from...

This is our family's fourth year at Cambridge Academy, and we couldn't be more impressed. I have a third grader, a first grader, and a kindergartener there; as with all families, my children are each unique and have very different strengths, challenges, and interests. The teachers at Cambridge have been able to acknowledge and celebrate these traits, rather than attempt to fit my children into a mold. The curriculum is challenging while remaining fun and engaging, the numerous extra-curricular activities are enriching and well planned, and the campus is clean and inviting. The thing about Cambridge that I value above all else is the genuine interest in, concern, and love for each student (and family). The teachers, office staff, and administrators take the time to get to really get to know each child and his or her family. I feel safe and confident dropping my kiddos off every morning.

Cambridge Academy is a public charter school. All teachers here in subject areas and music are not only degreed but highly qualified as mandated by the AZ Deptartment of Education. The only positions that are not mandated to be degreed are PE and Art. The PE teacher you are talking about only teaches the boys in 5th and 6th grade. He is a highly motivated and certified in fitness. The boys are thrilled to have him and excited to learn from him. He is following the Common Core curriculum also mandated by the Department of Education.

I know on the surface it may seem odd to have such a young PE instructor, but honestly my son loves it. No longer are PE teachers standing on the sidelines watching the action, they are involved in leading the students in active healthy activities. Bravo Cambridge for being bold enough to try something new.

Teachers can greatly range in quality at Cambridge. Currently my son is in 4th grade and I can say the teacher is not par with what has been our experience over the past 3 years. The size of the school can also be a negative as all the kids are bunched together on such a small property. I would have no problem sending my 5 year old here as they are very academically focused. For ages older then 7 or so, more complete options in the area are available.

My son started Kindergarten at CambridgeQC the first year they opened. He is in 3rd grade this year. We have had some growing pains but we have stayed because of the teachers! They are ll wonderful. I have found that talking to the administration directly is the best way to get your conserns answered. I love the small classes and my son is comfortable here. He would be devistated if we had to move him. Even though we have seen friends move on my son wants to stay and we are happy to keep him at CAQC. I'm sad to hear that others have had problems and I hope the school they move on to is a better fit.

Wow! It never ceases to amaze me how some people can post reviews on this site without checking their facts. The previous post is a complete fabrication. The owners/founders (Both teachers w/ 40+ years experience between them) built 2 excelling schools with the help of their 2 daughters and daughter-in-law. All of whom have multiple degrees in education, 15+ years teaching experience, and are more than qualified for their positions. There are no teachers that are related to the owners. Cambridge is a public charter school overseen and funded by the AZ dept. of Education. So, there is definitely a system for checks and balances! Cambridge also has many special needs students that thrive everyday with the excellent services they provide. The school was founded in 1999 and has prepared many students for high school and college. The many families that have attended and currently attend Cambridge and recommend their schools to their family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and strangers are more than thrilled with the curriculum, highly qualified and effective teachers, dedicated administration and caring environment that Cambridge offers!

Cambridge Academy East is better than ever this year! Academics and curriculum are challenging, but top notch . Communication has improved 100% due to their new web site, daily Facebook updates and email. They are even adding a strings program after Fall Break!! After school programs are great: Football, dance, chorus, piano, art .the list goes on. And, they purchased land to expand the campus for the Middle School program, which I m thrilled about. But most important, my kids love going to school.

I've enrolled my child at Cambridge Academy East Mesa, this is her first year. It is always scary to start a new school, meet new friends, etc. From day one my daughter felt welcomed, cared about and treated with respect! I have been so impressed with the quality of the administrative staff, the teachers and the inclusive atmosphere. I am so glad we found Cambridge

I have previously gone to this school for the years of 2007-2010. I was bullied everyday. My parents had notified the teacher, but nothing was done. I was still being teased. I had awful grades from the time I attended this school to the time I left. I moved to a school with a much lower rating and got much higher grades.

I was reading the latest post and I just want to reassure the parent, that this school is great. The pricipal is great. The teachers are amazing and I always get the feeling they love this school and they love our kids. In public school (which I suffered through until 6th grade), I always got the feeling the teachers were exhausted, over-worked, and way too tired to care about my kid. My son is actually very excited that school is starting up again. He is in 8th grade and excited to go to school. As a bonus, he actually learns so much more than he ever did in public school. Hang in there, I think you will find that it is worth it.

My first son is entering kindergarten this year and I am very nervous about him going to school. I chose Cambridge because I thought that there would be smaller class sizes and a shorter day. After we registered I found out that there are 21 students in his class(average for public is 22-25) and I thought there would be around 15. I was disappointed. I also found out that the time changed and dismissal was pushed back 45 minutes. My son still naps and I was counting on the early dismissal for him to still have time to nap. Although we have not even started yet I am disappointed. A plus is that I met the principal on several occasions and she was great. I did not even know she was the principal until after out second talk. She was very personable and easy to talk to about my concerns for my son. I am hopeful that the year proves to a great one or else we will move to a public school/

My child has been a student at the Queen Creek campus for 2yrs now and I would never imagine him anywhere else. The teachers they bring in are the best and if the teachers are not willing to accept the new curriculum that are coming down then they will find teachers that are. The main focus of the school are the children and that is how it should be. As for the front office, there is one very sweet, caring and over worked lady that sits behind the big desk and what people forget is, is that she is there to help our children. When one is sick they come to see her or when one gets hurt it is her that helps clean them up, so if she comes across a little rude remember she is being that mother figure for our kids when we can't be there to clean them up. Lastly for those people that want to find the negative in everything, where are you when the school needs volunteers? For Cambridge to continue to Excell more parents need to get involved. I have a fulltime job just like many but I will bend over backwards to make sure my child has the best education he can get even with my work schedule. The children should always come First and at Cambridge they do.

I have entrusted my two children (four years) with Cambridge's Mesa Campus. I feel for those parents giving less than five stars, unfortunately perception is reality to folks. I can say while I wish there more extracurricular activities I wouldn't trade their amazing teachers, class size, challenging curriculum and the parent involvement for them. My kids feel like they are part of family, no bulling, no cliques, no out cast. Thank you to Cambridge for providing my family with a great educational foundation.

I find it so disheartening to read some of the reviews that people post about this school. You will never find a school that is totally perfect, but I feel that Cambridge is the closest you will get. I help but notice all the effort that the staff and teachers put into making that school the best. Drive by on the weekends or evenings and you will see they are working. I have always been able to speak to the principals or teachers anytime I have asked.They have been more then willing to accomodate my needs and my child's.The staff has never been rude to me even when it has been hectic up front. I see them calling home for homework, lunches, taking care of injured and sick children and helping parents. Remember they are caring for 300 + children not just 1or 2. I agree with the last post! Look at yourself and your parenting skills before you criticize! Do you do your part as a parent to make their day run smoother?Do you make sure that they have what is needed for the school day? Maybe if parents did,teachers, staff and administration could focus on the educational aspect!They should make a site where teachers and administration of schools could post their reviews of parents!

I have a daughter enrolled in Kindergarten at the Queen Creek location and another for the next year. I volunteer in the classroom every week. Those teachers work very hard and go above and beyond their job requirements for each and every child. As for the comment about the kindergarten classes, you should be thrilled they are willing to change the curriculum if the current one is not meeting your child's needs. Behavior of the children in the classroom is a clear reflection of what they are allowed to get away with at home. You should look at your parenting skills and see how you can improve in order to help your child. Many parents believe that it is the teachers' responsibility to fix their children.Teachers and staff give money, lunches, clothing and supplies to children that may be without. Is that part of their job or is that something you overlooked as part of your job. Get your children to school on time, homework completed, lunch packed and fully rested for school. I have nothing but praise for the front office staff and teachers!!! Their jobs are not easy, especially dealing with some of the disrespectful parents and visitors that they encounter on a daily basis!

I can't believe how terrible our experience was here! We had looked forward to all the wonderful promises of the curriculum and staff, but was shocked at the reality. The entire kindergarten staff was changed 2011/2012, and the new teachers still have no idea what is going on. Our child's teacher admitted that the curriculum was new and there was no training. The behavior of the classroom was out of control, with children crying and/or wandering EVERY time we stopped in to check on her. I witnessed children being sat in a corner, and teachers using very negative behavior. We waited months for things to get better, but it didn't. At least eight other families have left from our classroom, and it isn't hard to see why the turnover is so high. What a disappointment this school is! My wife and I tried to speak to the admin, but they seemed to be more interested in the new junior high being built than in what is going on in kindergarten.

My daughter was enrolled at the Queen Creek location for the first half of kindergarten. I moved near the East location mid-year and it was imperative to me that she continued her education at Cambridge. I can t give the teachers at both locations enough praise. Unfortunately, we were told about of the way through the school year, that due to a clerical error, my daughter was not old enough to be attending, and we were given the choice of immediately paying for full tuition, or removing her from classes. The administration had absolutely no concern for my daughters educational career, gave no alternatives, and no suggestions as to what my options would be in order to keep my daughter in school. The administration had absolutely no sympathy to the fact that the error was theirs. I was vocal about the fact that my daughter was several months younger that usual for starting kindergarten, and that I wanted her to be tested for admission to see if she was ready. She passed the admission tests with flying colors and was socially and academically very successful.The teachers were amazing, but the administration has absolutely zero compassion or accountability. Something to consider.

I just got home from Curriculum Night at the Queen Creek campus. What an AMAZING SCHOOL!!! I cannot tell you how much I love my children's teachers! Mrs. Meeusen, the Science teacher, is truly one of a kind. I love her and so do my children. Mrs. Needer is another teacher that is one of the very best! The principal, Mrs. Kaylee, is always doing things for the children. Everytime I walk into the building she is busy making the school perfect for the parents and children. Have you ever seen a principal putting up decorations and getting the children excited about school? She always takes time to say hello to all the children. Whenever I drop in or drive by, it seems as if they are always there working (I have seen cars at the school on Saturday and Sundays). Mrs. Kaylee could not have picked a better staff right down to the receptionist! I have become one of Cambridge Academy's biggest fan!! Thank you for putting education back into my childrens lives. I will always be greatful!! Thank you Principal Kaylee!!!

I am very happy with Cambridge Academy. My son has been there for 3 years and we could not be happier. The education is top of the line with smaller classrooms where each student can really learn at their own pace. It is a smaller school so there are activities that the school doesn t offer, but I think for the size that Cambridge is there is a good selection of extracurricular activities. We tried out another school that was larger and as it turns out it is more important to my family to go to a school where our children can be challenged in academics, not computer club or the option for bus transportation. We returned to the school and cannot be happier. I think the communication is wonderful at the school. What I love about this school is that you really get to know your teacher and know where your kid is every day. You won t see a review where a parent is concerned about the quality of education for this school. It is simply one of the best schools in the East Valley. My son is excited to go to school every day and has a great sense of school spirit, if this is a school you are interested in call and check it out, you will be impressed by the curriculum.

As a teacher at this school, I feel the need to address the parent posting on 5/24 because it is completely untrue. There is one leak on the field and it's not sewage, it's a sprinkler head that the kids keep breaking. The fundraisers are done by PTO and they have benefited the classrooms with Smartboards and your participation isn't required. The lunches have to be pre-ordered because they are purchased from another company and that's the companies policy. Before you sat to talk with the principal, did you make an appointment ahead of time or did you just come in and expect to be seen regardless of her prior commitments? Lastly, all staff at Cambridge embrace, nurture and encourage ALL students regardless of when they began. Please know what you're talking about before you post because it is hurtful and untrue.

Question for the last posting parent? The one who says the all the negative reviews are dead on. What campus does your child/children attend? My concern is that there are 2 campuses and only 1 principal from what I've been able to gather. My child has attended QC for last 2 years. I'm pleased with them and my child will be returning, but I would be lying if I didn't have concerns. I believe tha they they have the best interest of the children at heart, but maybe have bitten off more than they can chew. My concern is that my child will be lost in the shuffle of that "school culture" changes. My child has attended for 2 years and I know the administration at our location, but I don't know if the two campuses share principals or have different? I really think the 2 campuses need to be seperated both on here and with admininstration.

My child attends Cambridge East. We have attended this school for the past year. The curriculum is great with no complaints on the education my child has received here. Now on to everything else. If you are a parent looking to place your child here let it be known the ALL the BAD reviews on here are dead on. The playing field has 2 sewage leaks coming up on to the field where the kids play. Has not been fixed since we started there. If you have issues or questions what is being said they do not respond and you will always be the bad guy. They will take this out on your child they will never give them the benefit of doubt. The communication does not exist. If you need a response none will be given. You will sit for 30+ min & never talk to the princapal.Every thing is last min. You must pay for lunches in advance which is the day before they r due. They expect you to participate in every fundraiser, their are 4 a month every month and going on at the same time. If your child is new to the school and did not start in kindergarten then your child WILL be singled out amongst the staff and students with no chance to defend them self s. This School is a NIGHTMARE. We will not return.

We have been at Cambridge for five years and we can't say enough about the staff and teachers. My son has been challenged, nurtured and excelled academically. The school is going through transitions as they improve curriculum to meet the new state standards. Transitions can be difficult, but they are a part of growing. Growing is exactly what Cambridge is doing. The parents I have known over the years are committed to partnering with the school and are keeping their eyes on the goals for the next several years. I encourage parents to learn more about the new curriculum. Cambridge is making huge investments in both time and financial resources to give students the best education. Kudos to Cambridge!

For the past three years my child has attended Cambridge Academy East. The last two years the school has gone down hill. There has been a great deal of teacher turn over. The principal is never there nor is she ever available to speak with. The girls in the office are rude and unprofessional. Some of the teachers are unapproachable. The overall feeling I get from that campus is that we should be greatful we are able to attend. There are many great schools in Mesa and I will be looking into another school for my children.

LOVE the QC location!!!! While every new school has "growing pains" this school has been proactive in solving issues of concern. My child loves the school, teachers and friends she has made. I can't comment on the school being dirty, but I hope the bathrooms aren't as gross as said. Maybe I'll have to pop in and check them out. My number one priority is to make sure my child is getting the kind of education that every child deserves, I have no doubts here! Sure, the parking lot is a nightmare to get in and out of if you are going into the school near pick up or drop off times, but overall, it's a GREAT SCHOOL!

It's a nice school, but have seen many changes over the last couple school years. I will agree with the last person , lots of teacher turnover why? ? I'm thinking the leadership is going down hill. Noticeably since they have opened another campus in Queen Creek. When i visited the open house in QC, I noticed that my daughters old teacher was the principal. With this being said now both schools have the owners daughters as the principles?

Contrary to the last post, this school has made positive changes over the last several years. The biggest changes are to come and I couldn't be more excited! I think the addition of middle school at both campuses solves a lot of our worries about what next. Thank you administration for listening and adding 7th and 8th! As for the rubber from the playground... it's safe and I'm glad there aren't wood chips anymore! I tell everyone I know about what an amazing school Cambridge is. Thank you for doing such a great job educating our kids!

We have attended Cambridge Academy for 7 years and during the last 2 yrs+ we really have watched it deteriorate. When we first came-we were so impressed with the commitment shown both by staff and the administration. We are very involved parents and were so happy we finally found such a great school. The last yr. and a helf it has lost MANY families due to the lack of leadership at the school. Also theyve had tremendous teacher turnover, no doubt due to lack of leadership and dedication to the students.**As a parent coming to this site for opinions of truePARENTS- I find it very disturbing & obvious that many of the reviews here are left by faculty and family of the school itself,trying to persuade parents. Lets hope they are able to make the necessary changes for the future. To the leadership of the school- my wish is for you to get back to what Cambridge originally was-a positive, nurturing community. Nevertheless- We are leaving also.

My children attend Cambridge Academy East. The teachers are wonderful and go above and beyond to make sure the students are understanding the information given. I also think the small class size helps children get a better education. Also, with smaller classes, children who have behavior issuses will stand out more, this could be an issue for some kids/parents. Overall, we love the campus. That being said, the campus IS dirty with rubber from the playground everywhere. Teachers are expected to clean their own classrooms (I think the school should have a service at least once a week) including vaccuuming. Finally, the administration is seriously lacking in organization, response and overall communication. I really believe the good outweighs the bad, but you have to be an active and involved parent!

My daughter has been enrolled at Cambridge Academy since Kindergarten and has excelled in every school endorsed endeavor since her first day. She has skipped a grade and is performing in the top tier of her current class. Having had an older child in a different school, in a different state, I have found that parents of under-achievers will always blame the school instead of taking part in their children's education and working with the child at home. Cambridge Academy is truly dedicated to the student and a model for successful educational AND family development. It's apparent to me that the parent who criticizes and makes unfounded accusations against the family that runs this school is envious of the success they are enjoying due to their hard work and dedication...AND I AM A PROUD CAMBRIDGE PARENT ...NOT PART OF THE FAMILY!!!!

Queen Creek Campus - My child is doing wonderful at this school, the teachers are amazing. My complaint is that the school is absolutely disgusting. It is sad that this building is brand new to the school and the hallways are full of garbage, the bathrooms are disgusting. The bathrooms look like they have been cleaned once a month. Kids are sick all the time because of the germs. Education is important, but so is my child's health. The school is always clean on days of events, but I dare you to randomly drop by during the day or even after school in the middle of the week.

I think that there must be a difference between the Mesa campus and the Queen Creek campus because our experience wasn t great. Parents didn't get involved in the school at QC and the teachers didn't want to help the PTO because they felt they already spent too much time helping students and that is a shame since it raised money for their projects, field trips, and equipment. Parents sacrifice a lot to send their children to a school that is smaller and boasts their focus on the individual yet children get bladder infections because they aren't allowed to go to the bathroom. The days are shorter than regular school, they don't have a library, no sports programs, and they don't have a cafeteria unless you pre-buy meals. The only person with a food handlers card is the one food handler and no one has a managers food card. They have no cleaners for the building so it is absolutely disgusting unless they clean it for an event and the teachers have to clean their own rooms. International night spends months on countries with little significance and is a waste of time and money! Not worth the sacrifice to attend this school.

We have been at Cambridge for three years now and have been very impressed. When our children have struggled they have received the attention that they needed to remediate and gain success. Their test scores have steadily increased every year that our kids have been enrolled. The teachers are engaging and are sincerely happy to be at school every single day as evidenced by my kids sadness when summer starts and excitement as school begins again. I don't regret one minute of my kids education here. Thanks for a great experience from a proud parent and supporter of your efforts.

Cambridge is a school with empty promises. Parents do your homework. The school is run by family and they only have their interests at heart. This would have been our third year there, but due to the lack of administration being available to address certain issues and staff that was rude every time you called or asked a question, we have decided to seek our educational needs elsewhere. There is no strong principal leadership or friendly staff. What happened to tutoring children that were struggling. What happened to all the promises!

Let me start by saying I am on of a dozen families that have left JUST THIS YEAR! We attended Cambridge for 2 yrs. and truly found it to be lacking in many areas. I thought going to a charter would be better but there certainly are many drawbacks here.They say they offer art,PE,music & spanish-its truly a joke. PE consists of playing dodgeball with a family member of the school as the coach-the spanish is also taught by a family member who would rather tell stories than teach-just to give a couple of examples. Also,if you have any issues beware of bringing it up to staff-it will come back to haunt you & the problem will still be there. BTW, many of the posts here are by the very family members who run the school-Lacks moral ethics here-please do your research parents.

3rd yr at Cambridge coming from CA and then a local "highly desirable" school. 17 kids in his class vs. 30+ in the public school. There are two 4th grades vs. 4 or 5. There is a staggered dismissal time so all 280 students are not released in mass exodus like the 1500 population public school we attended for 6 months. My son receives more individual attention to his studies....there is music, arts and PE. We also join afterschool programs. There are many opportunties..you just have to get INVOLVED in the school, PTO and extracurricular activiites. Noone has time or money right now, but they are kids, trusted to us for a very short time. We all want the best for our kids. Cambridge might not be right in every situation, but it is a small community where your voice can be heard and your efforts will make a HUGE difference.

This school has so much to offer. A previous review stated that there are no sports programs. No elememtary schools have them. You have to join leagues (there are many to choose from) There is PE, spanish, music, and art. They have a full time music teacher who also teaches choir. Two weeks of test prep is a small amount. Some schools have daily test prep all year long!

School is great as long as your child is acceptable to them, if your child isnt exactly the child they find ok, they will not accept them. They will do everything to push your child out of their school! Their rules change according to their desire.

The teachers at the Queen Creek location are amazing! My daughter loves going to school and learning. Her first grade teacher was great except she could be demeaning to the children as well as the parents. I was a little taken back by her approach. The campus was their temporary campus but it was always dirty and the bathrooms were a nightmare. I don't know if they use a janitorial service, but they should fire them. The education my child received was the best and I am grateful for that.

After attending this school for the past 4 yrs. it seems the administration is really lacking. My son really loves his teacher but there has been alot of turnover of teachers in the past.Seems if you question the administration as a parent or teacher, its as if you are on the black list,they can make it very difficult for you if you have concerns or dont agree with them on issues that affect the children. Needless to say, we will not be returning next year. Being a charter school, you really have to know what to watch out for-as far as the 'board'--its run by their own family members! That should say volumes. Very disappointed.

Although the education has been great, I have noticed that the administration at the Queen Creek Campus is lacking. On several occasions I have wanted to speak to an administrator yet there is never one there. I have overheard conversations in the parking lot in which the administrators have been yelling back and forth from car to building about issues that are best kept private. Hopefully they will realize that they are causing themselves great harm. Upon looking into this campus further I found that the administrators also lack the education to successfully manage a school. The teachers have been amazing, it saddens me to see that the administration does not appear to be as great as was expected.

Cambridge Academy East is one of the best schools that we have ever seen. The small classroom sizes (20 - 24 students) gives the teachers the chance for one on one teaching. The staff knows your name as soon as you walk in the door, this from having only 250 students in the school. Our son loves going to school, and we love that he is learning from the best.

First impressions are everything! The best way to select a school for your child is to visit the school...sounds simple enough but other schools asked me to set up an appt. or attend a group meeting held once a month. Cambridge Academy front office staff, set down what she was doing and walked me around the campus right then. Not only that, I was allowed to go into the classroom my son would be in and speak to the STUDENTS. I asked them who was new that year and were the teachers smart and nice. Kids are brutally honest so speak to the kids at whatever school you go to...not all schools are for every child...but Cambridge Academy seems to be right for parents seeking personalized attention in a small classroom atmosphere. We haven't sacrificed programs that the large schools offer but enjoy enriched learning experience and parent involvement. Just stop by and see for yourself.

This is my child's second week at the Queen Creek location. The first day my child was afraid and shy. The lady at the front desk took the time to speak with her and told her everything would be okay. She even walked her to her class and told her to come to her if she felt sad or afraid. She took the time later that day to call me to let me know that she was doing okay. To me that was amazing that she made my daughter and I feel so special. This along with the fact that my daughter's teacher was so amazing, made me feel that I had made the right decision in changing schools. My daughter enjoys doing her homework and cannot wait to go back the next day to school. Everyone is so friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend this school!

We are very excited, foreign languages and art classes are being taught to students in the Queen Creek campus. One of my children had a teacher at Edu-Prize that would yell and raise her voice. I have removed all of my children from that school and now they go to Cambridge Academy in Queen Creek. What a difference! They actually look forward to going to school every day! One of them told me, 'Daddy, I didn't know learning could be so much fun!' They are learning Spanish as well as German. The new campus they are building looks like a palace!

We just attended Curriculum Night at Cambridge. What an amazing school!! The administrative staff, principal Amy, teachers, and the receptionist Liz are truly the best at what they do. From the time you enter the doors until the time you drive out of the parking lot, they make sure that you and your children feel as if you are most important person. The teachers take the time to make sure your child is fully, yes fully understanding of what was taught each day. The teachers will even tutor, at no charge, your child after school to ensure them the best education possible. Where else are you going to find teachers like this that truly care about your child. My two children wake up every morning excited about going to school. Thank you Cambridge for restoring my faith in the educational system in Queen Creek!

I just recently transferred my children from a regular public school to the Cambridge Academy in Queen Creek. I'm so happy I've actually teared up. They are just opened in a temporary location and have already achieved more oragnization than my childrens old school did in 3 years. They have an answer to every question I've had. No hesitation, no 'i'll get back to you'. They know their stuff. Small class rooms, professionally dressed staff. I have never felt better and more at ease dropping off my kids in the morning. They actually teach the kids spanish as their curriculum!! If you have a chance to send your kids to this school, do not hesitate! They love it already, I love it already, and we are all very excited for the upcoming year! Thank You Cambridge Academy-Queen Creek

My daughter just completed kindergarten at Cambridge Academy East and we could not be happier. Mrs. Romm is an amazing, gifted teacher! I was able to help in the classroom on a regular basis and see first-hand how the small class size really allows kids to get the individual attention they need to excel. There is a nice balance between learning and play and the kids get to participate in P.E., music, spanish and art. The campus has an upbeat, friendly feel to it, and the teachers seem happy and excited about teaching. We are looking forward to another great year at Cambridge Academy East!

A few years ago I was confronted with my first grader not reading, I wasn't too concerned until I observed a first grade class at Cambridge Academy. I withdrew my children from the other school and placed them at Cambridge. Not only did my first grader begin to read and finish the year on level but to my surprise my kindergartner was also reading! Last year my children attended another school, all the while I wished they were at Cambridge, they excelled thanks to the foundation that Miss Kinner and Mrs. Stuebbs gave my children. This year I was able to bring them back to Cambridge and again both are challenged and are excelling! Mrs. Parklan and Mrs. Jorgensen have been a breath of fresh air! There is no place that would take the place of Cambridge for my kids!

This is our first year at Cambridge and we love the fact that the teachers teach to the individual child. If your child is ahead or behind the curriculum they will teach accordingly. The teachers are also incredibly open to trying new things...that moment...not next year or say they need approval first. The administration is the same way. If you have an idea that will serve to help the school they are all for it. The environment is incredibly nurturing and loving where teachers smile, give hugs and give praise. Students are empowered and because of this I can see a difference in the confidence level of my child. Only area of improvement I would suggest is to have a more structured science program with more hands-on experiments. Regardless, each year will just get better and better with more parent involvement and the school's quest for making things better.

I moved my daughter a few months into the school year. I love this school! The classes are small (19 in 1st grade) and everyone is welcoming and very nice. I have been able to help in the class several times and I am in awe of the control that the teacher has in the classroom. Coming from a public school of mayhem, I find it amazing. They are able to get through so much more in the day and they have high expectations of the children. It seems very balanced and I love that they offer art, music, spanish and p.e. They do very creative, interactive activities during the day with the kids, so you don't get stacks of busy work coming home. Each grade participates in the school assembly once a month and each student seems proud to participate. This is exactly what I want out of an elementary

My Son is in Kindergarten at Cambridge he is doing great with reading and can add numbers in his head, which @ age 5 to me is excellent. He loves his teacher Mrs Adams. Who does a great job with the students. I like the fact that the class size is small. I as a parent has spent time in the classroom to help & see that the smaller class size is a big benafit to the students. I can see that if my son would of gone to the school by where we live which had 29 students to start the year he might not be above his grade level.

My daughter is in Kindergarten at Cambridge Academy East. So far, she is doing wonderfully! I love the small class sizes and the loving nature of the teachers. She is reading well above her grade level and loves going to school every day. The teachers are excellent and really great with the students. I couldn't be happier with my daughter's education so far. Although there is a limited choice of extra curricular activities at Cambridge, there are VERY FEW K-6 public schools that offer anything more either. If that's the only consideration for parents making a decision about school placement, I'm not sure you will ever find a school for your child. I will continue to send my child to Cambridge as long as I feel she is being stimulated as a student and respected as a person.

A person writes that he is disapointed becasue the school is so small....but that is the benefit of being at Cambridge. the classes are small, the teachers get one on one time with students and the kids LEARN! There is a multipurpose room that functions when PE needs to be indoors, when there is an assembly and as a cafeteria. The kids get music in their classrooms....there is not need for a room. Art room, every classroom displays the handiwork of the kids....If he wanted these thing s he should go to a bigger school. I am leaving my 4 kids at Cambridge and would not consider anything else. Until I moved close I drove 45 minutes one way to get them to the school where they get the best education, a smaller social environment and warm friendly greetings each day.

One of the things we love most about Cambridge Academy is that it is a small school. We find the teachers and staff very friendly and know my children and our family by name. You won't find that at a public school with 400+ students. So what if they are short on rooms for PE-Music-Spanish and Art. The school is growing each year. At least they still offer these programs!!! Many schools are removing programs like these or don't offer them period. What is more important, to have their own room to learn these special programs or that they are provided the exposure to these areas? These are the reasons my children are at Cambridge: Awesome & Caring teachers and staff-Wonderful programs Art-Music-Spanish and PE-Year round schedule.

I love this school and it's wide range of academics offered. Many schools are taking away Art from their programs. My children have brought home some fabulous art projects this year. Their art teacher exposes them to different styles of art and even teaches them about artists. I was amazed my 4th grader could recognize a Van Gogh painting when we were out. Allowing art in a classroom provides children with the opprotunity to grow beyond the 3 R's. They are allowed the priviledge to be creative and open minded. Not all students are successful in math or spelling. Art has helped my children's self esteem and opened them to endless possibilities. I hope art continues to be something provided at Cambridge. My children look forward to it each week!

The last two reviews are obviously from the same disgruntled parent. My question for him/her would be- why are you still there? Why would you keep your child at a place where they aren't learning? My child loves this school. I also came because of the reviews. I knew however that the reviews would be subjective and that one school cannot possibly meet the needs of everyone. I can only speak for myself. Moving my child to this school was the best thing i ever did for my child. He is getting a fantastic education and all of the teachers, staff, and administrators are wonderful!

I have been very pleased with Cambridge Academy. My children seem to be very happy attending this school. There are some great teachers currently employed... however there does seem to be turnover that the parents are not notified as to the why? This school also needs to incorporate Spanish as part of the daily curriculum. Spanish is currently taught once a week. This would allow our children to compete in todays world. If your child struggles with any subject(s) the teaching staff is available to coach/help once a week! Overall we are delighted with the leadership this school has taken and feel they are on some of the cutting edge of today's issues,i.e. global warming. I would recommend this school to anyone wanting a smaller environment for their children in the early years!

In an August 2006 review it says social studies and sciences are limited... Well, I am glad to say that is very wrong. Each year they hold International Night where the kids show off what they learned about different countries to the communities, they have and excellent well rounded social studies program, including a great program on Arizona and the desert. And science, well, they don't cause explosions in a chemistry lab, but my sons and daughter are very well versed in science. How many Kindergartners can tell you all about snakes and which are venomous, and they do a super job on space exploration too. Save Chemistry for Junior High, Cambridge is doing a great job teaching them the things that matter.

I feel that Cambridge Academy East, is the best grade school. My Grandson attends school there and is in 6th grade. He is an above average student and it is hard to find a school that will work with the bright students. Cambridge does. Cambridge makes sure every student has the opportunity to excel. They go above and beyond to make the student feel good about themself. Each accomplishment is praised. I highly recommend this school to anyone who cares about the education their child receives. I work at Cambridge and I am the school Grandma. We are one big happy family, all the staff knows every student. We have an excellent PTO that has family activities each month. That means, Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles. We love family involvement. If you are looking for the best school, please visit Cambridge Academy East.

I felt compelled to write a review because of the review on January and March 2004. My children have attended Cambridge Academy for the last two years. Prior to Cambridge they attended the public school. I have compared what my children are learning to what the neighborhood kids are learning and my kids are ahead by leaps and bounds. I have talked with the teachers at this school and morale is in fact extremely high. The teachers want their students to do well and have told me that the administration helps seek all tools necessary to ensure success. I know many of the students that graduated sixth grade last year have been placed in the AP classes in the junior high. This is a wonderful school. I feel that my family has been truly blessed by finding Cambridge Academy. Ask any parent here and they'll say the same.

My daughter attended Cambridge for kindergarten. Her teacher was wonderful. She had a small class size, 14 children. My daughter was given special attention when she had learning problems early in the year. At the end of the year she was halfway thru 1st grade material. The teachers are very caring and the teaching is very good. They have enough structure and discipline in the classrooms so that kids learn to apply those qualities in their day to day lives, but still allow them to be individuals. Cambridge is also supported by the Mesa school system which means they have stadards to follow, which, I think is important. I have to wait and see how their supplemental programs are in the higher grades (gym, music, art). Overall it is a very good, secure school with a good bunch of kids and teachers.

This is an excellent school. My children love the school. Their teachers have all been great. They have made my children love to learn. I have checked out many schools closer to our home, but have come to the conclusion that this is the best school for my children. I drive 25 minutes each way so that my children can continue to get such a great education.
