My daughter's teacher is personally involved in helping our daughter reach her goals. He is passionate about teaching and helping the children be successful.

This school has been a game changer for our family. Our daughter requires special services and extra help in the classroom which she has gotten above and beyond at this school. There were a lot of changes this year but they are for the better. I could not ask for a better teacher than Mr. Ramirez for our daughter. Tears come to my eyes when I look at how far she has come this year alone thanks to Mr. Ramirez. The new principal is outstanding and very involved with the parents and children.

I almost didn't return this year after listening to the negative gossip from the former teachers and parents (who had listened to the teachers). I am so happy I didn't follow them and came back!! There is a new excellent principal and an UNBELIEVEABLE new staff!! Thank you Charter Holders and Governing Board members for not throwing in the towel due to disgruntled former employees. Thank you for being willing to make this campus great again!! I look forward to the years ahead my child has at Cambridge. If you are considering this school, you won't be disappointed because it is better than ever!!!

Run!!!!! The school has no money and all the great teachers are gone. It is sad because it used to be good, but, not anymore.

The teachers in the 2015/16 school year were amazing!! However due to the horribly run uppers, only 1 teacher is returning.

This is my first year teaching at Cambridge Academy but it did not take long to learn that we are not just a school but we are a safe and loving environment for everyone. In this school, it is not just the staff and students who make up the quality and worth of the learning environment. We’re all in this together and that includes the community, parents, and families. I believe with my experience at Cambridge Academy we truly focus on the quality of leadership, school facilities, and quality of teachers, parent involvement, and programs that are offered. It has been evident that Cambridge Academy works very hard to provide quality over quantity. In my years of teaching I have never seen a school truly come together as a family. I work with some of the most selfless people I have ever met. That means putting the students first and doing whatever it takes to meet each of their needs while also supporting each other. Team work makes the dream work and I can promise you that at Cambridge you will find some of the highest QUALITY leaders, teachers, staff, and students. I could not be more proud to be a part the Cambridge family.

I have been teaching at Cambridge Academy for two years, and I am proud to be a part of this organization. This school treats its employees and students like family; I have never seen a school with such a close-knit community. Students, parents, and faculty members, even those from different grades and subjects, know each other, and everyone is treated equally. There is amazing communication at the school and such a strong bond between the families and our staff. I love teaching in a place where everyone who walks through the door feels welcomed.

I have taught at Cambridge Academy for two years, and prior to my employment I was a parent volunteer in all three of my children's classes. I am continuously amazed and humbled by the atmosphere of support, love for students, and commitment to professional excellence held by the entire staff and administration. I have watched my sons and daughter grow, learn, and thrive under the instruction of their dedicated teachers, and I have watched my students blossom in their enriching, supportive environment. One of the things that impresses me most about Cambridge Academy is its cooperation mindset. Teamwork is a driving force both among the staff and the student body. Collaborations can be found at all grade levels, with kindergarteners helping third graders and sixth grade teachers helping second grade teachers. We recognize that every person on campus - staff and student - has unique gifts, interests, and abilities that are important to the school as a whole. Each person's dynamic talents are encouraged and cultivated to help them mature to their maximum potential. Being a part of the Cambridge family, whether as a student, a parent, or a staff member, means unconditional positive regard and unparalleled education. I am proud to be a part of this family, and I know my children and my students are receiving the very best learning experience in the Valley.
