CVES encompasses everything a young child should experience in early education. My child has been going there since Kindergarten and I have yet to find fault. The campus is as if it jumped out of a childhood children s book. The staff is so friendly and a day has not gone by without a gracious greeting from anyone who passes by. The Principal, who knows almost every child by name, stands in front of the school every morning to greet the children as they come onto the school grounds. He then does Flag salute outside with all the children of all grades and follows with a joyful speech on upcoming events, kids birthdays and special awards. And with all the children listening, there are so many parents there supporting the children. My child is in first grade and was fortunate enough to get one of the most amazing teachers I have ever met. She doesn t believe in negativity and disciplines the children with such an amazing positive approach that the children truly respond to. I am so truly appreciative of what CVES has done to help my child grow into a happy and educated small adult and sincerely believe that this school is a wonderful example of what education should exemplify.
I like Crown Valley and I like the principal! I'm frustrated and thinking about changing schools for next fall. My daughters 1st grade class this year has many challenging factors. 30+ students, learning curves for a lot of the children, children not focusing and having emotional outbursts which effects everyone in the classroom!!!! I volunteer to support my child and this gives me the chance to see how the class overall is doing. Thankfully my child has learned to adapt much like many of the kids have had too. My child is bored and tends to draw elaborate pictures on the back of her work because she is waiting for the teacher to help others that are either not listening and just simply don't understand the assignment that they are working on. The teacher can only do so much!!! MY consensus is it's not the school or the teacher but the lack of parenting for these kids. The kids that do listen and are eager to learn are not being challenged because of the disruptive and troubled children that take a lot of the teachers attention. I will continue to volunteer because the teacher deserves the support and especially the young children but it needs to start at home!!
This school used to have a great kindergarten teacher with Mrs. Seftel but unfortunately for the students but great for her she is no longer at this school. The new teacher does not seem to teach the kids rather hand homework out and let the parents do the teaching. My son has gone backwards since entering in to this class. On a high note for the school is the principal he knows everyone and takes time to greet the kids each morning and say goodbye at the end of each day.
Crown Valley Elementary School is a breath of fresh air. It has the feel of a small town school, the parents are wonderful and the staff is so knowledgable! I feel so fortunate that my children attend this school, it's the best!
Crown Valley truly is one of a kind. Mr. Bogle is a wonderful principal, who knows every child and their family. We have a beautiful campus with gardens where the children learn to cultivate various fruits and vegetables, an energetic PTA where the parents spend countless hours working for the students and teachers, loads of new programs for the entire school including a stand alone science laboratory. The science lab has monthly instruction for all K-5 students, with lab equipment available to all teachers at the school and a brand new Panasonic Interactive White Board which was donated by a former scholars family.
The principal, teachers, and staff are wonderful. The principal knows every child by name and is frequently in the classrooms visiting with students and observing teachers. The teachers provide an engaging and supportive educational environment. The support staff at CVES is top notch. The office staff is informed and helpful. The classroom aides are friendly and provide additional support to the students and teacher. The PTA is active in promoting activities and programs to support student success. We have a diverse student population which allows every child to learn compassion and patience. Recently, I have spoken to many parents who transferred to CVES and have been very happy with their choice. We may be small, but we are mighty!
We are fairly new to the school and we absolutely LOVE it. The Principal knows every student, sibling & parent by name. We have a FABILOUS PTA that has brought in a new music program this year and does a lot to help our school. We have GREAT parent involvement and a beautiful campus. There really isn't much that is negative that I can say. We are a smaller school but I think that is a bonus. There is more personal touch. We are the hidden gem of the neighborhood. I would totally recommend Crown Valley Elementary School to any new incoming families.
nice school, terrific principal, not great teachers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
CVES is an amazing school with teachers, staff, and a principal that truly cares. How many schools can boast a principal who knows every single student? The person who wrote about Mrs. Alexander should take a hard look at herself as a parent. When you point a finger at someone else, there are three pointing back at you. My child had Mrs. Alexander and THRIVED in her class. She inspired the kids to be great readers and many of her students were doing multiplication and division. She caters the lessons to each student's level. Are you involved at the school? If not, you should. That is what truly tells you what is happening in the school. Don't base your opinion on a schizophrenic parent who can't control their own child. Get to know the people at the school first.
NOT a great school. I enrolled my daughter in kindergarten here last year. She was in a class room where two teachers share the class - it was like Dr. Jekyl and Mr Hyde. My daughter was having a hard time adjusting to being at school, and I caught one of the teachers literally screaming at her as she sobbed not long after I dropped her off. It was really scary to see a kindergarten teacher acting in such an uncontrolled and inappropriate, and just cruel manner to such a young child adjusting to a new school. I would hate to see how she treats the kids half way through the school year. I do not recommend. It was very traumatizing for my daughter, and infuriating for me. I will say that the principle handled it in a nice way, and the teacher apologized - but really should people like this ever be in a classroom?
Our school is wonderful, truly one of a kind! The campus is beautiful and the students are loved by their teachers.
I have two kids at Crown Valley and absolutely love it! It's the kind of close knit school that I remember going to...great families, wonderful teachers, fantastic principle, and dedicated PTA. Our campus is beautiful with large, mature trees and a vegetable garden in the middle. The kids recycle and have started a composting program. My kids are getting a great education and love their school!
I have a child attending this school and love this hidden gem! The school has a smaller number of students than some of the surrounding schools but that is the added bonus of getting to know every kid, their parents and really be involved in his elementary school experience. This school has great teachers, administration and parent participation. My son is getting a great education and loves going to school
I have a 1st grader and we love Crown Valley. I have had nothing but a great experience here, my son really likes going to school and adores his teacher. The administration, teachers and parents show alot of pride and commitment.
My kids love this school and they're getting a great education. Parent involvement is high, teachers are excellent and the children are thriving.
