My son and daughter have attended Cordova Gardens for the last two years and love this school. I have liked all of their teachers very much and find them professional, well-prepared and committed to students and their families. My kids are in the foriegn language magnet program and are enjoying learning Spanish as part of this program.

My children have spent a combined total of 11 years attending Cordova Gardens Elementary school. I have found the non credentialed staff to be like a flock of gossiping hens and a total of three credentialed staff to be worthy of their paycheck. They are the lowest performing elementary school in their district and currently have a special needs teacher that says things like "you are a very bad little girl and someone should put you in the corner" to his students. Bullying is not addressed effectively and volunteer staff are basically there to chit chat with one another while your children are learning street life in the bathrooms. Just remember parents, YOU have a choice as to where your child is educated and my children are no longer there.

The FLES program (Spanish Language immersion) is a positive addition to this campus. The FLES teachers are excellent and the new principal Mr. Tapia is committed to each student's success. He knows each child by name, has high expectations, and encourages family involvement. His warmth, sense of humor, and expectation of excellence sets the tone for the school. My children have been transferred from Cordova Lane to this school due to closure, but we are blessed to have retained Mr. Tapia and the great FLES staff. Hopefully the entire school will benefit from his leadership!

Look at this schools test ratings and see for yourself why this school is subpar. Some of the teachers there are very good, but I find many who should be working in a back office and away from our children. There need to be many changes at this school for a child to succeed, one of which is happening next year with the demoting of principal Carboni. Let's hope the 2010/11 school year brings some needed changes to help these impressionable children succeed.

My daughter is getting to join a special program that will teach her the Spanish Language... it starts in Kindergarten and goes through 5th or 6th grade. It's so nice to start when they are young.

Cordova Garedens is a very special school. They are established and have some great extracurricular for families to attend. Teachers go above and beyond to offer before and after school interventions. They also have a fabulous resource teacher who is very knowledgeable. They are one of the few schools which offer sixth grade, which I feel is very important.

My children and neices and nephews have attended this school for 7 years. I absolutely love the interaction and relationships that are built between the students and teachers. The teachers remain open to suggestions from parents and leave the line of communication open. The PTA is wonderful and there are always activities planned to bring the parents and children together for fun and learning.
