Main consideration should be whether it's a "fit" for your child's learning style. In some ways, constructivist, project-based setting works best for self-motivated kids. Lack of structure/accountabilty can be problematic unless parents are strong advocates There are some amazingly invested, talented teachers here but also a handful who use lack of structure and tolerance of alternative methods to justify an "anything goes" mentality. Problem is made worse by a principal who is strong on theory and concept and leads from her heart but lacks leadership skills to manage staff, delegate real authority and to confront obvious ongoing problems that impact staff and parent morale. As a result, the school seems stuck in a pattern of unrealized potential due to the extraordinary amount of energy that goes into managing drama in an organization where chaos reigns. Often feels like school is more about handling adults' needs than kids'. Perhaps all schools have these issues? However, their strength in social/emotional arena is priceless and I credit them with the fact my kids are happy, well-rounded, creative and love school. SO, what are you going to do?

very alternative school. I really like the educational field trips. I joined this school starting 5th grade because my son needed smaller class size and a friendlier environment. This school is perfect. My son is very happy and seems to be learning..........

SDCCS is the most amazing school ever! I have learned so much and, contrary to what others have said, the middle school math standard(especially seventh grade) is quite high. I have gone from a third grade to a grade level education in two years, getting straight As, over 90% on test scores. I don't care what others say, this school is the best school in the entire world. We have caring teachers who are all like parents to me, and sweet people everywhere. Zero bullying is tolerated. Once two people had to apologize in front of the entire school for sending a rude email to a fellow student. I highly recommend this school. Love it! <3 <3 :) (: c:

I have a 15 year old who started in kindergarten at SDCCS and is now doing very well in high school. I also have two sons who are currently enrolled at SDCCS in 7th grade and 1rst grade. I can honestly say that I wouldn't send them to any other school. I believe in the philosophy and have seen how it plays out over a 9 year period with so many kids who started in kinder with my daughter....this school fosters emotional intelligence, curiosity and confidence which is so important in the development of a child's ability to problem solve. They know how to help themselves!I really trust the community at the school and appreciate the importance placed social issues in all grades. After being there for over 11 years (with 7 more to go) I can honestly say that I don't mind some of the chaos that also goes along with a place like SDCCS with it's pets and gardens and festivals and parades and field trips and science projects happening in the hallways. It has worked extremely well for all my kids with their very different personalities!

This school has been life changing for our entire family. My kids couldn't feel more loved, nutured and cared for by not just their individual teacher but by the entire staff. Academically they are challenged to taught to be critical thinkers. The social emotional cirriculum has been a postive force in guiding the school community. SDCCS students are more empathetic and caring than I could have ever dreamed. You really have never seen a school like this one!!

Although I think this school is making growth and overcoming adversity, I am still concerned that my son is not learning what he needs to be successful. I don't believe standards and the need for academic challenges are of interest to many of the primary teachers. I love that my son has made many friends and peer relationships are strong, however he has yet to bond with his teachers and this worries me because the 'male role model' he needs in his life is not to be found on staff in the primary grades. He will have to wait until Middle School (unless I relocate him sooner) to receive great teacher-student interaction with the male staff. I think you are doing many wonderful things SDCCS, but there is a need for new faces or a 'changing of the guard'. Teachers that have been there for over a decade need either a new role or a new setting. I know charter schools have the authority to remove educators that aren't a 'great fit' for kids. I wish the administration would recognize this and do what is best for the kids, not just keep teachers around because they are friends with one another.

Wow, this school has grown by leaps and bounds in the past several years. It seems that the staff are always trying to take things up a notch and make the school even better than it already is. Don't worry about the poor rating this site has given to our wonderful school. The raters have no knowledge of this schools fabulous social/emotional curriculum, hands-on learning activities, unbelievable art program, loving dedicated teachers, kind, generous and supportive families, and hard-working leaders. When the school began recruiting some children who did not have all the advantages of the more affluent families the result was an immediate drop in test scores. It is unfortunate that the school is penalized for trying to help children who have fewer options. It's a win-win for my children though because in addition to the impressive curriculum they are also making friends with kids from many different backgrounds. To me diversity is an important consideration when looking at schools. I know this school is awesome when strangers ask where my kids go to school because they are so impressed with their behavior, thoughtfulness and intelligence. Thank you SDCCS, you are the best!

I have2 kids inSDCCS, both very different with regard to learning style and temperment. Both have thrived in this supportive, nurturing environment. I too have concerns about test scores and academic rigor but I also recall that those considerations are fairly new for elementary age children. To me, this school is about what K-5 should be (and used to be) about- primarily social-emotional development, a foundation for problem solving and developing an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. New research shows over-achieving kids packed full of facts for testing are entering the work world without the ability to think creatively about complex problems. Also, with info at our fingertips, the key is knowing how to critically evaluate and apply that information. Teachers here love what they do and it shows, my kids come up with solutions to things I never considered, and Even in 3rd grade, they still play for hours on end using their imaginations. The second-step social-emotional curriculum has given us tools 4 emotional growth and I love the focus on arts, the environment and parent involvement. This school gives us alot that we used to get from neighborhood family connections.

This is one amazing School. We came from out of state and we spend several months in Rady children's Hospital. My daughter had some special dietary and other needs that the school was very willing to help with and help her with continueing her education. The teachers are awesome and the staffing has been beyong top notch! If you get the chance to attend this school, please do so! you iwll never regret it!!! Thank you to everyone and the staff for all you have doen and do. They do the most amazing job with kids and are truely caring and helpful.

I am an alumni at this school and I simply love SDCCS. I was definitely prepared for high school. And I can't believe some of the things that has been said about this amazing school. This school is not taught to the test and is project based learning. This method was perfect for me and I excelled and even got the flying pheonix award. (which is all A's and E's both semesters the eighth grade) I go to San Diego High now and I am perfectly capable of dealing with the homework load, the method of teaching which is by all means NOT project based. I think that going to this project based school followed by a 'taught to the test' school is a perfect pair for almost all students. However if you are a parent looking for a school with amazing test scores, as you can obviously see this is not the school for you. I for one got advanced in all my test scores but some of my friends didn't. I had the best time at SDCCS and I always look forward to when I can visit my old again. I treasure the memories I have there and I adore watching my siblings go through this school all the while learning so much. Thank you SDCCS I will never forget you.

This school is quite different from the average public school, and I mean that in good and bad ways(Take it from me, I'm a student at SDCCS). The teachers care about what the students learn, regardless of the tempo they learn at. They are friendly and down to earth. The only problem is that sometimes the students get off task and talk a great amount through each class. Another thing that bothers me is that most students that have been attending at SDCCS most of their life tend to push the newer kids out like they have their own group or something. If you think you want your child going here in 7th or 8th grade, I would find another choice

While the school hasn't always been true to their constructivist philosophy, this year they are stronger than ever!! A major overhaul occurred with a unification of curriculum across the grades and a move toward developmentally appropriate practices that consider the whole child, brain research, and true social learning. If you're looking for a school based on test scores and memorization this is NOT the school for you. If you are looking for a school where your children learn to be competent and confident problem-solvers who actually retain what they learn long after the tests are over, then this IS the school for you. My child has never been happier and we are so happy he is valued for the unique individual he is. He has developed an amazing ability to connect what he is learning to the world and absolutely LOVES coming to school.

Test scores are nothing to rave about here, in fact if you are looking for a school that is academically rigorous I would count this one out. Lots of literacy instruction but little in math. The principal is easy to talk to but never follows through.

This school is not afraid to go forward with innovative ideas. Not afraid to Not teach to the tests. As we all know tests prove how a child tests at that place and time and not what they have really learned. Our language and music program need help. Our Art program on the other hand is loved by all, and our children's progress is easily seen. The fact that our staff is so young is both good and bad. Great that they have the stamina and energy to put into the class that they do. Not so great that they, for the most part, do not have children themselves, so it is hard for them to see as a parent sees. My children thrive here in a safe environment that does not squash their spirit. It enhances it.

Wouldn't it be great if your kids looked forward to going to school each day? Here the kids do. Project based learning makes it fun for the kids and enables them to really understand what is learned. They also retain knowledge even longer than is necessary to get a good grade on a test. My adult friends are always quite impressed with the knowledge and critical thinking skills my child demonstrates in casual conversation. She is thrilled to be growing in such a stimulating as well as nurturing environment.

What makes children good people, and not just good students? That's why I love this school - due to the 'whole child' focus on molding them into responsible, caring, thinking and creative adults. The children can look you in the eye and have an intelligent conversation.

This school is not for everybody. Parent involvement is mandatory (though not strictly enforced) so if you're looking to drop you kids off at day care and pick them up at the end of the day, then you need to go elsewhere. There is a strong emphasis on the non-academic side of the kids' brains which is refreshing. Kids that come out of this school will generally be much better equipped to relate to others. The school could use more emphasis on academics (better follow-through, setting the culture of the school to reach higher). I agree with other posters about 'clicks', however I would argue that you get that at every other school as well - it's just more magnified here due to the smaller class sizes and the fact that parents know each other more (because they're all volunteering at the school).

My daughter absolutely loves this school. Her kindergarten teacher is so kind, loved and respected by the whole class. All of the kids are really great people too, all kind to each other, no bullies. There is a large playground area with a nice veggie/herb garden where many of the kids like to go and work or play. Each day of the week there are special classes, art, music, PE, Spanish and my daughter can already sing a song in Spanish. The best thing is that she is learning to love to learn. I am so thankful for this school.

This has been a great school for my kids (middle and elementary school). The faculty is responsive to my children's specific learning needs. They are also responsive to parent insight and concerns. The principal is stellar. Hands down, one of the best principals in the county. The philosophy of the school (constructivism) makes a lot of sense when thinking about the kind of skills my kids will need when entering the workplace in the future. Both kids were eager for the start of school at the end of the summer - I think that speaks volumes!

I pulled my 8th grader out of a traditional middle school because he was hating school and enrolled him into SDCCS. He flourished and has since become a better student and no longer expresses hatred for school. It's small class size, not burned out teachers and their hands on curriculum is what makes this school different. If you're looking for a school that actually cares about the kids and their well being, this is the school for you. Most of the kids are great and I don't see any evidence of gang activity. They practice diversity and open mindedness. I love this school, I wish I could have gone to it when I was a kid.

The academic program is based on hands-on learning and individual attention. Class size is limied to 21. Music, art, Spanish are in the curriculum from Kindergarten on up. Lots of field trips and projects. Cooperation, problem solving, and respect are taught and practiced. Parents have to work for the school 56 hours a year in whatever capacity they and the teacher decide. My daughter and all the kids we know love to go to school! The parents in the class can provide a real support group to each other. Homework is minimal in all grades, not a burden on kids or parents.

Daughter moved to SDCCS mid-year to secure a coveted spot for 7th. Embraced by dedicated , savvy , creative coterie of teachers. Brilliant hands on open-minded supportive principal makes students needs paramount to egos and non-academic agendas. Remarkably- no cliques nor signs of exclusionary behavior thanks to teachers who are in tune to kids social/emotional needs .Alana is in the care of nurturing role models with positive influence during adolescent self-discovery. Academically the school employs true differentiative teaching strategies for GATE students needing challenge and critical thinking opportunities . Teacher expectations for GPA's could be better defined with syllabi and project outlines(hopefully coming soon)At last a school with little tolerance for behavior problems. This school is for kids eager to learn. Parents unite/ aren't afraid to challenge precedent.Parents not patronized, input/concerns respected.

This was our third year at SDCCS and this was the best year yet. Our oldest has some learning disabilities and the school has done an excellent job of providing all the services we have needed this year. Her teacher was great, great, great. Her progress this year was remarkable. I am thankful for this school and our second child who was in kindergarten had a fantastic year. The teacher managed to help her grow academicly and keep her lovely spirit in tact. Something most schools would squash. We look forward to the move to a real campus and feel that the good times have just started as far as our childrens education is concerned.

Parent involvement is a must, but that involvement can take many different forms, and other family members can accrue the volunteer hours (grandparents, etc.) You can print out class notifications of emails for families without email access or you can volunteer in a classroom. It is up to you how involved you are in the school. The more involved you are, the better your experience will be. Personally, I haven't witnessed any cliquey behaviors in the parents. Using the contructivist method of teaching, the kids are encouraged to learn by doing .. that hand on experimentation that develops the mind. The close access to Balboa Park and the museums makes for easy field trips. My son is just starting 1st grade, and he had a wonderful experience in Kindergarten. PE is being introduced this year as a speciality class, along with Art, Spanish, and Music classes.

My son's kindergarten teacher was a board member as well as the class volunteer coordinator. we came into the program mid year from a traditional school where my son had homework often, so I could see what he was working on and his work was corrected and returned home, in opposite to the secret manner in which my son was being taught at SDCCS. I was harrased by my son's teacher and another board member when I did not do enough volunteer work, despite not ever seeing some parents do any volunteer work. The class was like a cult. If you were not liked by the teacher than the leader parents treated you bad. The prinicipal seemed helpful yet, at the end I became mistrustful of everyone at the school and withdrew my son when the harrasement by other parents and board members became unbareable when picking up and dropping off my son.

Parents are involved but can be in a clicky way, staff and parents can be gossipy and disrespect family privacy. Staff can grumble about lack off school support, which also effects school safety, as a teacher often must leave a class with limited supervision while unclogging the bathroom. Also parents will talk with teachers during class transition times,i.e., ending of class, which leaves kids unsupervised. I've seen kindergarten kids walk out of a classroom, while the teacher was talking with a parent. complainers can be dealt with harshly and kids are no longer invited to parties.

SDCCS has been a great experience for my children. My third grader has been there since kindergarten and my eighth grader has been there since fifth grade. The small classes and personal attention from the teachers has benefited both kids. They love school and have made really good healthy friendships (especially important for my middle schooler). I like that I know the parents of my kids' friends. I feel like if I want it, there is a welcoming community of parents here. The teachers range from very good to outstanding. The classrooms are small and crowded, but the school will be moving by the 2007-2008 school year.

This school is a rareity in San Diego. There is a strong art and music program. All of the children have Spanish classes.

Through working with and watching teachers, I have learned how to be a better parent. I have come to the place where the concept of village and community are not catch phrases, but actual living and breathing parents and teachers caring about me and my child everyday. SDCCS offers music, art, chess club and not only allows parent volunteer involvement - it requires it as part of acceptance to the school. Now in it's fourth year, the school is financially stable and looking for a new home within the SD Unified school district.

The community is exceptional - real commitment and connections. The kids are all together - reflecting staff and the parent community's dedication. The range of topics and diversity offered in each classroom is giving my kids a worldview that makes me very proud. Plus! the connection to all the museums and other cultural institutions has made a big difference.

I only took a tour of this school and talked with some of the staff. I really like thier concept, but was fairly uninpressed with the unkempt appreance of most of the classrooms, as well as many other items that needed tending too. There was a considerable amount of trash on the ground inside the gates that looked as if it had been ther for some time. Most class rooms were somewhat crowded and not super clean, but the teachers were very friendly and open. The art teacher was kind enough to show us around the art area.

For the best teachers in town SDCCS is the place to go. The school is located very near Balboa Park and the students use the resources (museuns, park and zoo) for weekly field trips. This is a very small school where the children, from K to 7th grade, interact with each other and the parents are all over the school volunteering. It's not just a school but a community. Most importantly, though, is my daghter is thriving!

This amazing school is a bold implementation of long-proven learning theory we should have been seeing for years in all of our other public schools. The principal-teacher relationship is nearly unprecedented. Trust, courage, cooperation, communication, support, innovation, training, rapid conflict resolution. All for our kids so they can have the best eduation possible now and best chances for beautiful futures.

My daughter is just starting her second year at SDCCS and we couldn't be happier. The school is a 'cooperative' meaning that all families are very involved. It is a very close, empassioned community of students, teachers, parents, and staff. The first PTA meeting I attended had over 100 parents present! The administration is committed to maintaining class size at 20 in all grades, not just k-3. The school is across from Balboa Park and has partnerships with the Natural History Museam, the Art Museum, the Park Rangers, and others.

This school provides a fabulous community for children and parents. The teachers are incredibly, bright, creative, and committed. The students are lively, bright, and happy to learn. If you observe the students eagerness for learning against the backdrop of their caring for each other, you will find the school enchanting.
