This school is awesome. E.V. Cain has so much to offer. I have one student that is in the Gate program at this school, and the teachers challenge them, along with teaching in a fun way. I have a second child at this school, who needs plenty of extra help, and they offer plenty of assistance with after school programs, open classes during lunch, and constant communication. I receive at least 3 emails a week from teachers. The sixth graders go on plenty of trips through out the year! They have Boys & Girls club on-site. They have many social events that parents and children are involved with. This is an awesome school.
We pulled our daughter from this school. The teachers are overwhelmed, there's no individual attention and the amount of drug use that goes on at this school is shocking. I now find out that many parents chose to avoid this school.
My son is a new student to the district and loves school. He is doing wonderful with his academics. He enjoys the elcetives and is involved with the video production club. EV Cain does a great job and the communication from the tachers and the principal are the best I have seen.
My son loves this sc hool. His teachers are great and keeping in contact. He enjoys the lunch time sports and activities and is involved in the rocketry club. H esaid the principal is really nice and is out playing with the students at lunch.
Our child has gone here since the 6th grade and is now in the 8th grade. He is in geometry for math and in the advanced classes for all his other courses. Yes, we have always been on top of his homework and made sure his grades were up, however, we also give a lot of credit to the teachers and administrators of this school. We love the families and all his friends who go here. I just can't imagine a better teaching environment!
My son is a 6th grader is loves EVCain. He is challenged academically, is on the track team, and loves the school spirit. his teachers communicate on line with grades and assignment updates. They are so helpfull when I have a question.
E. V. Cain is not a good school at all. My son is scarred for life because of all the bullying and religious criticism he received there. There are a lot of mean poser kids, no discipline for bad behavior, and no one does anything about it. Do not send your kids here.
I am currently attending EV Cain as an 8th grader. I am looking forward to Placer, but i will miss this school and the great Teachers. (like mr prero) the food is good. A few of the noon duties are a little too bossy though. And a few of the subs are sorta mean for no reason. The dress code at the school is pretty loose, but that's good for the students. There are lots of different ethinic groups at this school. All in all, the school is pretty cool. Rock on EV Cain!!!!(lol roflmao)
I love this school! My son is happy and excited to be there in the sixth grade. He is challenged academically and has made many new friends. The lunchtime activities are great - he can play well-organized and supervised games of basketball, volleyball, or soccer every day. The administrators are positive and charismatic, and strive to have good working relationships with all the students. The principal even plays sports with them at lunch recess! The teachers are wonderful at communicating with parents about student progress, and promptly return all phone calls and emails. We are looking forward to all the field trips and projects. In addition, the office staff is efficient, friendly, and extremely helpful. I am thrilled that he is there - what a change from the local K-8 that he attended before!
I'm a former student of E.V Cain, I transferred out due to my parent's various issues with the school. I however, loved it and even though I have switched schools again and again for years afterwards, I have never had the greatest teachers or friends like I did at E.V. Cain. I was in the GATE program, and unlike other schools they don't really have many opportunities available for you. Even though it's a big and tough school, it makes you strong and prepares you for whatever comes your way.
I sub at Cain on occasion, and I can honestly say it is the worst school in the area. I have never seen such disobediant and disrespectful students ever. The staff does not even seem to know what is going on. I ask them basic questions about the school and procedures, and they never seem to know what is going on. The pay is not nearly enough for the headache it causes.
E.V. Cain in general is a well rounded school despite the negative things u hear. My son has been doing excellent maintaing honor role status-however when it comes to the principal i have noticed he ivery judgemental of appearances and has judged my son as a no good due to the skater type clothes hea wears. Also when there are proven issues with the teachers they staff at the school tends to disregard what the students are telling them even being a proven fact that the teacher has been in the wrong and believes the teachers. It is actually sad that there are teachers that can treat the kids any way they want a get away with it.
OK, Let's really face it (the music). Cain is a very tuff school around this area, many, many kids. It can be fun and can work for some, but to many fall into a trap there. I am a home dad and take part in many school activities. I have had a child go through all three levels recently. Was in band, music, and played most sports they offered. He currently is in high school, playing sports now and is doing much better academically (B+ avg)two years later (was at D avg) . He was exposed to way to many questionable things there that influenced the way he acted and viewed life. This also made him fell like he had to show off for others. It took two years after Cain for him to realize that being real cool is achieving goals that really count in life and getting the job done, working hard on study, and being part of the fun side of life just before adulthood makes so much more sense and is easier in the long and short term. Cain just was not a good mix for him and so many others that never had any issues with their schooling before. Now that Skyridge school, where he came from is going K-8, we are keeping our 5th grader there as they seem to be able to reach out better than the staff at EV Cain. By the way, the staff at Cain is very good, just overwhelmed in my opinion and it appears to others I have seen here on your site.
EV Cain is not a bad school. The new principal has really turned the school around. Instead of 8 periods, we now have 7,giving us more time to learn. My english/anthropology teacher is phenomenal, and we are one of the only schools that has geometry for the 8th graders. I my self am a 7th grader. I believe this school is really great.
E.V. Cain is a good school as long as you are proactive in your childs education. There are a lot of good teachers to choose from. The electives are wonderful. My daughter became CPR certified in the 6th grade. It may be a big school, but it allows your child to make new friends from other schools in the area who will also attend high school with them. E.V. Cain recently had a principal change, as well as a format change (quarterly to trimester) and I am optomistic that this will be a great year for my 8th grader.
e.v. cain has an excellent principal and fantastic teachers I respect there new decisions this year and look forward to having a great year
E.V. Cain is a great school. I attend E.V. Cain for 2 years, sadly, I had to transfer schools because of some career changes. I loved E.V. Cain, I had many great friends, the academic programs were great(including the teachers)and as for music,art,sports,and other extracurricular activities, there we awesome especially the Boys and Girls Club on campus.
E.V. Cain isn't the best school. There are not enough teachers, and the children dont learn profoundly.
Has a good choice of classes and offers programs for gifted children. It is too big.
