Amazing school! Amazing kids! Amazing staff! I have 3 kids here and I love this school. Never met teachers more in love with their students. Not to mention they still have art and p.e. :)

My second child is finishing up her last year at Cabrillo, and our experiences there for both our children have been very positive. I find the teachers not only very dedicated, but my experience has been that they make a concerted effort to place each child with the teacher that is most compatible with their personality, which has worked out well for our children. I'm also thrilled with the level of parent involvement (at school, and in the home) which I know is also a large part of the success of this school. It will be bittersweet when my youngest finishes her final year at Cabrillo.

Our daughter's have attended Cabrillo from K-2 and we have had such phenomenal teachers. The principal, Mrs. Lynch, is very helpful, supportive and compassionate. We couldn't ask for more in terms of a supportive, positive and caring environment for our daughters.

My daughter attended Carrillo from K-2 . This year was her last year. She is very sad but we are forever thankful for all the love and academic attention the teachers have given her. She has improved GREATLY!!! My daughter received extra help after school with reading and grammar and it helped her tremendously. Mrs. Zirbel, Miss. Fernandez and Miss.Anaya were all wonderful teachers!! The entire staff is simply wonderful!

Couldn't be happier. Love everything about this school from the Principal, my son's teacher to the PTA. Agree with all the nice comments about the school. Brand new construction just makes it as nice on the outside as it is on the inside. Sad we have to move on after 2nd grade to the next school.

I am not satisfied with their discipline and character building approach for younger kids. Teachers seem very overwhelmed.

As an educator myself within another district, I have to say that I am pleased with the quality of education my children have received at Cabrillo. The teachers are wonderful and I appreciate their efforts and time spent planning as a team to assure that our children are being exposed to a curriculum that is challenging and enriching. The Principal is supportive of her staff and she truly cares for the students. As for the PTA, I have never seen such a group work so hard and dedicate much of their time to our children. Thank you Cabrillo for making 'school' such a wonderful experience for my children.

Terrific curriculum. The teachers at CAbrillo are truly dedicated to the childrean and spend every moment possible helping the children. My daughter has learned so much and loves going to school. Unfortunately, the school is way under funded. P.E. is once a week if the teacher is available. We actually had to raise money last year to keep P.E. Parents are very involved, but we can only give so much while paying for before and after school care. It's unfortunate that the school has so little for extracurricular activities.

Wonderful Staff, Offers fair amount of programs, always could use more parent participation. Caring School with offered afterschool care for working parents which is a +++.

The school is very good if you want to make sure that your child passes the standardized testing. The education provided focus' more on that helping the students to pass than anything else. I would love to see more science and art projects to make the children a little more rounded. The teachers are great and very caring towards the children. I would definitley recommend this school.

I'm so happy that my family is in the school district of (Wiseburn)so my children can go to Cabrillo. The leadership is truly of team spirit, love, discipline and organization. Which is so important when you have the responsibilty of someone child for 6 hours. The involvement of the parents and teachers together is so crucial and its great to see the parents participation in the school's PTA and the activities at the school. I believe no child will be left behind at Cabrillo. My daughter is in the 1st grade and her teacher Mrs. Schumacher is what we need as a teacher. She is loving, patient, caring and gives her heart to all her students. My daughter has improved in her reading and the atmosphere and safety of the school I appreciate.
