My daughter went to pre-school and returning as kinder. For 2.5 hours a day, my daughter learned so much (theses kids at 4-5 years old learned 1-100, basis math and ABCs). I couldn't thank the teacher and teacher asst enough how much my daughter grew. It's sad that the pre-school program is ending. Cantara may be a low-income public school but it gave my daughter world-class preparation.
i used to come here a long time ago. its not the best school but for me it was. I went until half of 5th grade then moved to fresno. the schools lunch was good the teachers were nice and there after school program was great...i used to be the schools vice president. idk if they still have that though O.o. im am now goin to finish 8th grade and go to high school. i think this school is great!
There are few teachers who actually care for the student. The principle doesn't care what complaints you have against a teacher, and act like your the only one who is to blame. As stated below they very much need to improve their bedside manner because they have horrible attitudes towards parents.
Dumbing down of Gifted students & raising up of underacheivers. Feels "politically correct." My child has busted his but on projects and gotten under graded while Iv'e seen some pretty bad work that got great grades. Maybe the Teacher is evening the playing field, but it's upseting to see that hard work doesn't always get recognized. Thank goodness for the CST scores, they can't play with those.
This school does so much for it's students. It also reaches out to the community. All who visit agree, It's a great place to send you child if you want them to learn and be apart of something good. The librarian is a dynamo who is just one of many that gets the ball rolling. It's a "gem" of Reseda!!!
