I am so happy with CVLCC. I Have three children that attend this school. Two in elementary and one in middle school. They are challenged daily and I know they will be academically ready when they graduate. I attended private schools all my life and the curriculum at CVLCC equals if not surpasses them. The only difference being that it is absent of religious studies and is tuition free. I love that they wear uniform! It makes it so much easier to get three kids ready and out the door week day mornings. Spanish, Mandarin, and English. Our kids will have better opportunities when the time comes. The best thing I find about this school is that all the parents get to know each other because of the mandatory 30 volunteer hours we are to offer. Don't let this scare you. Like I said I have three kids but I'm only obligated to do 30 hour a year for them. It can be sporadically or in one month as long as it's completed. I think this is a great idea. This is a great idea because I get to see how the school works, I get to know the teachers, and my children become happy and encouraged to performs well in school.
We have 3 of our children at CVLCC and we have found the educational program rigorous and finally a place where our children are stimulated and challenged. We did our research before enfolding and visited at different times to get a feel for the school. Like at any school there is room for improvement but we found the parents hanging outside the school talking to each other welcoming. No flea market feel for us. I welcome any perspective parent to our campus and please ask to see our curriculum. Schedule visits to the classroom and see if this is the right school for your children. As a parent and advocate I highly encourage you to become informed and seeif this is your school!!!
I am so glad people are finally realizing the truth about this school. I made the BEST decision to take our child out of that "crowd." People with no manners, standing around chatting like "comadres" outside the school every morning was the most annoying I could ever see. Everytime I either dropped off or picked up, I felt I was in a fleet market!!! Staff is disrespectful in the way that they just hear you talk but at the end "they are right," and their approach is unconsiderate. The bullying here is outrageous and they really don't have a realistic solution that STOPS IT. All those "meetings" are useless as what really happens DOES NOT at all match with what they promise.
I am very disappointed about this school. I had another expectation for my child who is a English learner all the workshop i have gone to said that if my child learn Spanish fluently his English would improve. it s the opposite now he forgot what he has learn in English and doesn t get the Spanish. This school doesn t do a good job in teaching English language arts and in reality Spanish is a good trait to have. It could open opportunity but the main language in this country that will get you anywhere is English. I agree with the other parents comment beside it failing curriculum their lack of discipline and arrogant is far beyond being a good school. I just the fame the got back in the days but it s not a god experience for the child nor the parent.
At one time this was a great school, in the beginning. Dr. Ramirez now over sees 6 schools and has no day-to-day understanding about what is happening at CVLCC. We know many that have pulled out their kids who have attended from Kinder - 5th, because bullying, crowding, shameful tactics, dishonest in actions, and more. It's nice that teachers get a catered meal every day - it's not nice they can't afford to hire additional help at breaks and meals to watch 300 plus kinder and 1st graders. No accountability for kids who are hitting and pushing. They rule with an iron fist - it's their way or the highway. You disagree with us - you'll be punished or we'll punish your kid somehow. A lot of great families are leaving. Recently a middle school class took a trip to Disneyland. Each student had to pay their own way. If student couldn't afford it - had to sit in office that day. The Director says he didn't know anything about it. Sad that the teachers and parents allowed that to happen - that's not community that's separation. Just tip of the iceberg. They change the rules and policies daily. During testing kinders had to stay inside during recess for two weeks that is crazy.
I used to be so proud my children went to CVLCC, but that was before they expanded. Once they added the middle and high schools, it seems they lost focus and the quality suffered. I echo all of what was stated in the previous post. It's very unfortunate, because they had a wonderful school, but they broke it with their overinflated egos. The top administrators all drive expensive cars yet they can't provide basic P.E. equipment or having working phones in their portable classrooms. They have their priorities so far out of whack. I think they are doing all the children there a huge diservice. I hope they read these last few posts and come to their senses and get back to where they used to be.
I just pulled my son in kider from this school. I am very dissatisfied with this school and its staff. My son was stabbed in the inside of his nose with a Popsicle stick and he was bleeding everywhere. They took for ever to call us the parents and because the mother ofmthemother child had a lot of influence in that school it was all swept under the rub by the time I got there. My son was very pressured many times by the mother of the other child and its staff to says it was an accident after al ready stating 3 times that it was purposeful. When I confronted the staff and they' admitted to their mistake the principal never even called he did not even care. This school has nothing but psychological bullies for staff and your either part of the click or you are not. I don't recommend there is no check and balances they rule them selves. I had a terrible experience.
This is a fairy tale school. You don't need mandarin and dance to learn.... You need math, writing, and life skills. Can't wait til this fad is over. This school with graduate Facebook and Instagram experts who can't read or function.
My school is a great school! We are a multilingual school, learning Mandarin (Chinese), Spanish and English! Are teachers are great exemplary teachers, from teaching Ballet Folklorico to Literature! Although, our school could be a bigger campus, it is great the way it is because we are a small community that knows each other and we are really close friends! :)
Its an awesome school! Absolutely gorgeous amazingly stunning campus! Love it! I can't explain in words exactly how I felt graduating from there and going into another level of school and the community is just great!
I have my daugther in Kindergarden at CVLCC I truly believe that is a great school. What makes a great school? well great principle, office staff, and amazing teachers. I love the fact that the school is dual immersion (English/Spanish) and I like the fact that they are multicultural. Like almost everything else there can be room for improvement like more online accessibility to students homework, assignments, etc.
THE SCHOOL IS GREAT BUT THE RULES CHANGE EVERYDAY!! I have a niece that is trying to get into this school and was not accepted y because it was a RAFFLE and she was not picked , So todfay i find out that there is a new student and is the friend of the PRINCIPLES Niece!! That is sooo not right!!! he need to be fair and make that student wait till next year to start or what about RAFFLING HER NAME!!!!
I actually graduated from CVLCC in 2003 and I can only say great things about this school. I had such a wonderful experience and I owe all of my achievements to the wonderful programs that were offered while I was there. I have known the principal all of my life and there is no doubt in my mind that he works day and night to see his students succeed in all they do. I am now a college Sophomore in Los Angeles, CA and I am succeeding both as a student and professional. CVLCC is a wonderful school that I would love for my future children to attend.
It has the friendliest and nicest staff I ever met. You can tell the difference as soon as you come in. You really feel welcomed. CVLCC is a also a high performing school and embraces biliteracy.
I am a parent of a kinder student. CVLCC is an incredible school! The principal is visionary and has created a learning community that consistently challenges and inspires students. The teachers are dedicated to providing the best learning environment for the students. It is great to see the family members and community so supportive of and involved in the learning process.
I am a parent of a 1st grade student at CVLCC. I truly believe this school is the right fit for my daughter. The math and social studies curriculum is very strong. I love that the school has a Micro- Society! I love listening to my daughter speak about what she believes the work force to be. Parent involvement is a requirement and my daughter loves seeing me take part in her education. The principal takes pride in his school community. I am very pleased with CVLCC!
i've been in this school since kinder. And i have never had a complain about it. They have made a middle school which what i am attending now.it is not like a regular middle school.the teachers keep you on top and the school has given us laptops to the 7th graders for are homework and are studies.all i know is i want there to be a cvlcc high school.
After being pressure by sister, who is a 1st grade teacher, to enrolled by daughter at CVLCC. I was not sure if it would be the correct school for my daughter. I truly believe the correct decision was made. CVLCC is a great school. From the staff to the parents and of course the students. Besides the sense of community felt at CVLCC, academically the school ranks one of the tops in the district. I am very proud to say my daughter attends CVLCC
My daughther is going in to third grade next year, she has been in CVLCC since kindergarten and we are more than happy and proud of saying that she is an excellent student all thanks to CVLCC. we are so very proud of our school.
I'm probably being a little bit bias, but I truly believe that C.V.L.C.C. Is one of the best schools is San Diego. Their bilingual immersion program is very impressive. I know that parents that only speak english are proud to see their sons and daughters speak fluent Spanish by the time these students reach 5th or sixth grade. Another especial program that this wonderful school offer is their micro-society program, it teaches students as young as kindergarden to deal with real world decisions and activities. I'm also proud of their excellent body of teachers and school staff. It really doeas take a total goup effort but it really is worth it.
