The Principal needs to encourage parent involvement but she seems to discourage it. I found it really hard to talk to her and she seems to not want to deal with concerns of others. She is content with the way the school is and is not interested in advancing.
My son goes to Cherrylee and we love this school. I am a therapist and I go to various schools which include "high rating" schools and "low rating" schools to provide therapy for students. Objectively speaking, many teachers at Cherrylee really care for each student and they are trying very hard to entertain students and create a good environment for them. Cherrylee is a small school, so teachers, school staff, students and parents get to know each other well relatively quickly and work together as a team. My son loves this school.
I am very unhappy with the Principal and the response I have yet to recieve regarding the unreported gas leak at Cherrylee. I am a parent of a student there and when myself and others smelled the gas we were told "oh that is just sewage" We know what sewage is and it was natural gas. The gas co responded via our request and open trench has been there since the inspection yet cannot get an answer. Should a memo to parents be sent out? No heat in class ,dress warm!
I must disagree with the last post. Not sure if the parent focuses more on socializing rather than academics, but Cherrylee has prepared my children for the next levels of education. They have continued to score proficient or advanced on the CST exams. I'm proud of Cherrylee.
Very unhappy w/ The changing of principals every other year! Lots of favortism when it comes to Xmas programs..same kids year after year! When I attended cherrylee we all participated...not the case these days....teachers If I had to rate between 1-10 ? I would give it a 0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CherryLee was my school growing up and I'm glad to see that the things that I loved about my school, great teachers who go beyond, Especially. for those kids who need a little extra and the spirit to keep education fun and interesting, still remains the same for my children who attend now. Keep up the great work.
Cherrylee has been very proactive in my son's education. The facilities are well maintained and the instructors are all very good.
i have gone to cherrylee elemetary i think that this is a great school with teachers who care and that to me is important i think that they need more money for the things the students need but th e teachers are great and academicly is a great school.
My son is in the 4th grade has been attending this school for 1 year. Academics appear to be covered quite well. I like the fact that the teachers he has had have a genuine desire to teach and stretch him. I really like the principal she floats a very positive attitude and is easily accessible. Things I would like to see would be some sort of music program where they could learn to play an instrument. They have after school sports teams which I look forward to next year.
