I must agree, most of the teachers I've dealt with here have very little understanding on how to work with children with ADD. Both my children have it. It was very hard to get a 504 plan set for them. They kept on implying that meds were needed, which I refused to do. My 6th grader is doing very well now and my 2nd grader is still struggling. The teachers don't understand that children with ADD/ADHD can't learn with the school's cookie-cutter approach. I highly recommend they receive specialized ADD/ADHD training so these children can get the kind of quality teaching they need. Other than that, I'm very pleased with their Spanish Immersion Program and highly recommend it.

The teachers are amazing, I moved just for this school and it exceeding all my expectations for both my kids. It is its own community and every really comes together for the kids. Best decision I ever made was putting my kids in this school. I highly recommend it.

I have had a very bad experience regarding this school. This school DOES NOT know how to work with children with ADD or ADHD. The teacher my son had last year was nice and involved but just didn't seem to understand how to work with children with ADD, although together she and I made it work. This year his new teacher treats him as if he is innately flawed. She hasn't said one good thing about my son. He is not a mean or combative child, just sensitive and easily distracted. In my sons last school he was doing fine and the teachers were much more positive. All I can say is this school has certainly fallen short.

We bought a house in Chula Vista after living downtown San Diego for the last two years. One of the reasons why we selected our house and the area was based on the scores for the school system in Chula Vista. We have been very happy with our expereience thus far. The teachers are supportive and the principal is active and open to new ideas. We look forward to many more years with Hedenkamp.

My kids have been going to this school since the begining of this school year & they addapted well. The Vice Principal was very freindly and made my children feel very welcome their 1st day there. My kids started mid September and did not know anybody since we had just moved back form North Carolina. He walked with us to both of their classes and intruduced them to their new teachers. Over all, my kids seem to like it a lot! Hedenkamp has one of the best ratings in East Chula Vista and plenty of mililtary families live near by too. We ourselves are ex military and I'm glad I made the right choice in enrolling them here.

I go to Hedenkamp and this school is like my home. It's "The Home of the Huskies"! We have awesome times everyday. Everyone comes to school with big smiles and happy emotions. I'm very glad I'm going to this school! -Nia 4th Grader


Posted June 16, 2010

We are a military family who chose where to live based on the school. My son was in 3rd grade and had a horrible experience at Hedencamp. I tried talking to the teacher numerous times,but she did not take my concerns seriously. The principal was very dismissive as well. I pulled my son from there and put him in private school this year, where the difference was night and day. My daughter was supposed to go to Hendencamp this year, but when she was tested for kindergarden, they wanted to send her straight to first grade. Again, my concerns were dismissed. When I observed a kindergarten class at the end of the school year, they were doing the same things my daughter was doing in preschool. This made my choice to send the kids to private school an easy one.

Both my children attend Hedenkamp. It is rare to find teachers that really care and love what they do. But, we are very fortunate to have a great staff. Mr. Yee, Mrs. Guzman, Mrs. Littleton and Mrs. Hawa are only a few of many at the school. They truly care for their students. Good Job!!!!

Needs more teachers like Mr Munoz, Mr Yee, Ms Orpilla - very concerned with children's academic performance and positive character development bringing up the best in their students.

I love this school. My sons have been attending for 3 years. The teachers are amazing. They are dedicated, motivated, and caring. They encourage the students every step of the way. In the last three years, it has come into its own. From the new school to a school that stands out. Keep up the great work!

My two daughters attend Hedenkamp and I am very impressed with all the teachers & the staff. I feel that they go out of their way to ensure the parents are involved in what the children are learning. My oldest daughter has just qualified for GATE and I am interested in seeing what they do to enrich her education. My oldest son was also GATE and I believe the school system at Finney failed him miserably and never kept him challenged. I am very pleased with the quality of the teachers at Hedenkamp. Keep up the good work.

We have 2 kids at Hedenkamp right now. One is benefitting greatly from the Spanish immersion program. All of their teachers have been fantastic so far. The school's stated emphasis is on writing. There is a lot of activism on the part of the parents, vs. the old school our oldest attended. The facilities are just a few years old and very nice and clean. One potential downside, like all new schools in Chula Vista, is that it's very large. Capacity is 1000 and they will probably reach that, but I don't think our kids have suffered at all from it thus far. The kids are on the whole well-behaved and our kids feel safe. Principal Cruz is excellent. The drama program is outstanding - our oldest has benefitted greatly from it.

This is a pretty much new school, only a year old. It has a nice facilities. But the school is not challenging enough for my son, as he is a advance level student.

My son is a 3rd grade at Hedenkamp Elementary School. I have noticed a great strive for knowledge in my son. He had accomplished alot this year. Being a parent is hard,teaching your kid especially after work, but with the parent & teacher communications it had helped alot. My son looks up to his teacher. Rewarding student with their accomplishment is a wonderful idea. Hedenkamp is a new school, but with the hard work and dedication of each staff, Hedenkamp will be one of the best in Chula Vista. I look forward sending my second child to Hedenkamp. Thank you Teachers, VP,Principal & Staff keep up the greeeeattt work!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
