I think Covillaud is a great school. I went to covillaud,my farther went to covillaud and all of my siblings also went covillaud. I read a post that stated it is located in poverty stricken community. I was really offended by that. The people in our community are hard working law abiding citizens. Some of the best people you'll ever meet. So what I say to the person that made that post though its easy to judge even easier to be kind and non judge mental. Think poverty stricken community best elementary school in the county. Thank you

For the life of me I cannot understand why the Superintendent of the Marysville School District has not given the support or money to this school compared to all other schools here. This school is so far beyond what every school in the Marysville District it's like it's from another planet. From the top down this school is the best. Great attitudes from the principle through the teachers with the kids learning as much as they can and instilling in them pride and not beating them down as the rest of the system does in this district. it's scores are off the charts and it is a cal distinguished school, too bad the Superintendent doesn't see fit to give them more. Playing politics with the kids future, too bad. This school is tops.

My son started this school this year (2010) as a 4th grader. His grades went from a D to an A average when compared to his previous school. Yes it is an older school in a poverty stricken area, but the teachers and staff are amazing in making sure your kid get's the best of the best chance to succeed and get good grades. Bullying is a bit of an issue, but keep in mind most of these kids come from troubled homes and probably do not have the best role models in their lives. The school knows this and that is why they go the extra mile to make sure they have a good education so they have a fighting chance to carry that into their future. All of the teachers and staff make sure they positively encourage and inspire the children. They acknowledge and reward the kids for all their achievements big or small. This school prides itself on parent involvement. I LOVE this school!!!!f

I was unsure of placing my child in a school in Marysville so I placed her in a Charter School. Well needless to say that did not work out and eventually I had to place my daughter in Covillaud. I could not be more pleased with a school. I have had so much support at the school with issues with my daughter that it is unbelievable. My daughter loves going to school. The Principal, teachers and staff are unbelievable. They are there for the children. I have been thinking of moving but refuse to leave Marysville because I would have to move my daughter. She is now in third grade and is doing wonderful thanks to the wonderful teachers at Covillaud. Mrs. Negal is the most awsome teacher!! I wish my daughter could have stayed in her class!! Thank u Covillaud for all your support.

I have two children that attend this school and I could not be more pleased we come from a military background and my young children have attended several schools and this is by far the best one I feel that the teachers really care about teaching not only academics but also how to make good choices for themselves and other people around them I would highly recommend this school to anyone!

I find the teacher's have a high level of commitment to the children. They are proactive about contacting parents when there is a potential problem.

All three of my children have gone to Covillaud since Kindergarten. My youngest is in the fifth grade now. Covillaud is a great school. The staff goes out of their way to make every child feel like they belong. I am very grateful for the education that my children has received. The teachers push their students to learn at their full potential. Reading is very important to this school. Helping out in classrooms, I've seen kids come into the third grade with a first grade reading level and by the end of the following school year they're reading at grade level. Awesome! The principal is a great man, caring for each child as if they were his own. The RSP program is wonderful also. Covillaud goes out of its way to encourage the students to participate in extracurricular activities such as GATE, local track meets, and music programs.
