The vision of Cambridge Academy East is an excelling, achievement-oriented environment where children in grades K-8 learn, master, and eventually apply foundational skills in a sequence that logically builds from the most basic elementary content to increasingly higher order conceptual thinking. We are a school committed to the family, embracing the notion that the school is an extension of the home, and therefore we must work together to achieve success. It is our belief that all children have the ability to achieve greatness and become the person they dream of being. At Cambridge Academy East, we provide a rigorous and Arizona State Standards aligned curriculum, disciplined environment where our students are academically and socially prepared to excel in demanding college preparatory schools.
We chose Cambridge for it's class size and close knit feeling. My daughter has excelled there. It is nice to go to school where they know your child by name. They have had a few faculty changes that were a little discerning but overall we have loved it.
My child has been in Cambridge for 2 years. We were drawn to the school because of its smaller size and the number of pleased parents. I feel that my daughter is meeting or exceeding the standards. The school management should be more firm and consistent. Take the critizism and learn from it. I am disappinted by the lack of music art and other activities. I think that field trips are a must even if the parents have to support it. With all that said my child will finish at this school through 6th grade. It is alot better than the alternatives.
My son started last year in Kinder. He was a reader and knew pre math by the time the year ended. He's now in 1st grade. This school strives for strong academic goals, and early reading is one of thier strong points. It's small class size contributes to great learning. Teachers are caring,very helpful and responsive to parents needs. Small school population is a plus. Needs better extracurricular activities, but tight budget prevents. I highly recommend Cambridge Academy East for strong academic concentration.
I am very happy with this school. My daughter started 1st grade at a public school last year and we pulled her out the first week. We then started her at Cambridge Academy and she has excelled thanks to the teachers, the curicullum and the principal. It is almost like a family. You really get to know the teachers and other parents. I would highly recommend this school if your childs learning and safety is the most important part of school.
Enrolling my child at Cambridge Academy was the best choice I could have ever made about my child's education. My child's education has far surpassed other children I know. Thank-you to the administrators and staff for giving my child the start she needed!
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.
Very happy with the personalized attention, small class size and great environment.
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.
This was the first year that my child attended Cambridge Academy. Enrolling her in this school is the best thing I could have done for her education. She spent last year in a Mesa Public School with 30 kids in her class and got no individualized attention. Cambridge has not only reinforced that learning can be fun, they have contributed to the highest test scores of my daughter's education!
We have two children who attend Cambridge. My oldest was in the Public School and put in a classroom with 33 students. Needless to say, she was not getting any individualized attention. I had to volunteer in the classroom to help with the Reading and Science programs. The teacher was overwhelmed with all the students she had. I withdrew my daughter after the first quarter and placed her at Cambridge. She was then one of 16 and excelled from the start. She started in the second grade and now is in the 5th. When we got her Standford tests back she was scoring post high school! Thank you Cambridge.
