Love this school for my son. We have been here for 3 years because my son was being bulled by a principal at another CV school. Like the small school feel and wonderful staff and parents. If you are unhappy do what superintendent told me... Go to another school. This is a perfect fit for my child. I think in general schools today should offer more creativity and less emphasis on testing. But that is all over this district. Hopefully we can change the district leadership with school board elections and then the district administrators. Would love to see CV district leadership put kids first. No elementary child should be tested. Just way too much. My child is not a test score. His brain is still developing. That being said still love this school. Very caring people work here!

As you read these reviews please keep in mind the dates of the postings and that there are over 400 families at Chula Vista Hills each year. One person's disgruntled post is only one out of 400 opinions. Given that almost half of Chula Vistas Hills' families choose to go there on a zone transfer from other schools please take some of these posts with a grain of salt. Unfortunately in life we can't make everyone happy. This is a great school with a dedicated staff and wonderful community. Please form your own opinion, and do not rely on the personal agendas of others.

This is an excellent school. I switched schools for both my children since I was not getting the results I wanted from their former school. I have had nothing but a positive experience. The new principal is great with the parents and students. The front office is very friendly. The teachers are very educated and care about the students success. They offer many after school programs to enhance the arts. I am very pleased with my decision. Overall, CV Hills is an excellent school!

PARENTS WHO HAVE HAD NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE WITH ANY SCHOOL SHOULD REPORT IT TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, AS WELL. MAYBE WITH ENOUGH COMPLAINTS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL DO SOMETHING.

Nothing but great experiences with both the teachers and the principal. My son loves going to school . The principal is great with the kids and really takes a personal interest in them. She has sat in the parent teacher conferences, responds to all my emails, calls and concerns in a timely manner and I feel she is very genuine. I am sorry others have had bad experiences,but I just don't see that happening at all.

Concerned parent, I had my daughter transferred from her old school to CVH. Had a meeting with the principal and heard and felt negativity the whole time in her office. After a few days, my daughter had an incident. Principal advised me to revoke my transfer. Not giving me any chances or my daughter to fix the issues she brought up. After confronting and explaining how she was acting, she went from being a principal to trying to intimidate me and not caring about my opinions. Also she doesn't follow policies she is worried more about test scores and looking good. Make sure you do your homework about this principal she is not worth the energy and gray hairs. Horrible experience.

Principal very friendly easy to communicate with and is very passionate about her students. Teachers have an amazing curriculum plan. My daughter enjoys learning the way they teach! Love cvh :)

Why would one parent try to intimidate a principal when its the principal that has the power to intimidate parents. What a ridiculous comment. Parents want a good education for their children, period. The current school principal focuses too much on her personal vendettas. She needs the boot!

The negative comments were made by one parent who has been trying to intimidate the principal. Like you, the rest of us 400+ families have had positive experiences with our teachers and principal. We are very happy that our children have the privilege of attending Chula Vista Hills!

I loved this school when i went to it the teachers really wanted s to excel in our work. The new principal is really bad though. I loved the old one but she sadly had to move to another school :(


Posted May 11, 2012

Chula Vista Hills is a GREAT school! The teachers are wonderful and the education is TOP notch! The few complaints here about the principal are obviously from parents who are never happy with anything or do not like to hear the truth about their children. There are a few viral parents at our school who continue to spread hate about the principal because they can't get over the old principal leaving. As for poor leadership, our school was in the 900 club this year and was awarded the CA Distinguished School award for 2012. If the teachers don't like her, sorry, you don't have to be her friend. That should have nothing to do with our children.

This was the first year for my child. I am so disappointed with the principal. The teachers might be great teachers, but a poor leadership is sure going to affect our child's education. My experience with the principal was horrific and my child will not be attending next year.

This is a GREAT school. The teachers do a good job teaching and working together. Yes the principal is new to the school, this is also her first time working as in this position and dealing with parents and their varitey of problems, it was time for a change in principles and this on has done an outstanding job!! She is acceptable to those that take time and get to know her. This is still an outstanding school which we hate having to leave because our children have advanced to high grades. The good basis started here,

This is a wonderful school with great families. The teachers are excellent. This year however a new principal took over and it does not have as much 'family' feel. She interacts with adults fine but not as well with the kids. That is what is important. The school is not the same and it is truly sad.

Music is offered weekly by a credentialized music teacher, who also organizes (on her own time) an upper grade chorus, Advanced Recorder Club and 6th Grade Drum Corp. Various grade levels perform plays during the year and an annual variety show allows students to showcase their talents. Music and arts are highly encouraged and multiple assemblies are scheduled, including the SD Opera, SD symphony, and local high school and middle school bands and choirs.

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.

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.
