Unfortunately, the teaching my child received was below average. Personal experience with leader staff was extremely unprofessional. A small school like this one doesn't afford much choice when teachers aren't meeting your child's need. The kids are wasting precious time instead of learning at the level they crave.
I have no doubt that this is the best school for my son after trying many other school options. Don't get manipulated by some boorish comments. As an experienced, well respected teacher, I recommed this school to the family with high expectaion and value.
Great job Cambridge faculty, staff and admin on a job well done an award well deserved!
The quality of this school is severely limited by lack of experience and budget. How long have the teachers have been there and what is the turnover? Instead of focusing on the children, the focus feels more like raising money and putting bandaids on the many disruptions to learning. There are many great Christian schools in San Diego as most people already know. Some of the feedbacks here I noticed are excessive, marketing this school in lieu of being real and honest, and from grandparents or aunts and uncles? If you're pondering which school to send your young child, this is one to avoid.
Comprehensive and rigorous academics, loving and very well qualified teachers, and a loving and committed community of parents, teachers and students make this school a very desirable place to send my kids. I live in Scripps Ranch, where the schools are very well rated. I still chose to send my kids to this school because I want my kids to be educated with a Christian world-view, where they see the world and themselves in light of God and His truth. I can't be satisfied with just strong academics where the truth of God is neglected or often attacked. Don't just read the reviews... I invite you to check out our school website and attend one of our information nights and see for yourself!
It's rare to find passionate and gifted lower elementary school teachers with master's degrees and even Ph.Ds who really nurture your kids academically, spiritually and socially, who actively partner with the parents, and who really 'get' the school's Classical Christian vision and execute it with excellence. My kids can't wait to go school, look forward to Mondays, and cry when they have to stay home because they're sick. All this, along with top notch standardized test scores, says a lot about this school.
It's easy to be effusive about this school. Quite simply, my child is flourishing here and I see the excitement for learning in his classmates as well. My wife and I are both thrilled that every aspect of academics is centered around unwaivering biblical principles. I strongly recommend this school to parents who desire a solid biblical basis for their child's life of learning.
Can't imagine sending my child anywhere else. Other classical Christian schools either provide a strong spiritual component but lack in academic rigor or vice versa. I believe Cambridge does both VERY well. We are very happy with the school, and so is our child!
Cambridge beautifully and thoughfully weds the pursuit of discipline and academic achievement. Our son receives all the attention he needs to learn, grow, and be challenged both morally and intellectually. We encouraged daily by the staff's commitment and passion to our children and the school's philosphy. We recommend Cambridge to all our neighbors and friends --and not just to those who are interested in private school. In short, Cambridge has a been a true blessing and has helped us become better parents.
As aunt and uncle to two students at The Cambridge School, we have been very impressed with the quality of education, commitment of the teachers and staff, and, most importantly, the enthusiasm of the students for the school, its curriculum, and activities. The students seem to thrive on the academic challenges. As noted elsewhere, this is a new school, but that, in my opinion, has not limited its academic excellence.
This school does an outstanding job of executing on its vision. Yes, it's a new school and so has the normal issues you would expect with a new venture. But, the teachers work tirelessly to implement the classical model, the staff are effective and cheerful in their labor, and the head of school embodies the vision through her devotion and passion for God, the students and the school. Give this school a serious consideration.
As a grandparent, I have no words to express my deep appreciation for the functioning of the Cambridge school. My grandchildren receive personal attention from a well-qualified and competent staff. I see contentment and satisfaction on the face of every parent. For any parent who looks for a great school of academic excellence and spiritual values based on biblical standards, this is THE SCHOOL in the area. The staff, children and parents together make a family. My grandkids long to be in the school all the time which speaks for itself. May God bless this school that it will turn out to be a great blessing for the community around.
I agree, this is indeed a great school. My children love it! I wouldn't send them anywhere else.
I was also disappointed with this school. They fell short in all aspects, including the way they treat the children and parents. The curriculum was boring and repetitive. I think the administrators and teachers are young and inexperienced. The parents are also young so they do not see how poor this school fares compared to other schools in San Diego. I do not agree that this school is a top-tier private school with high academic rigor. The level of teaching of foreign language is very basic as is all of their curriculum and activities. Please do not be deceived.
We are a new family to The Cambridge School and are very pleased with the overall quality of the school. The staff is very dedicated and has a passion for the students that shines in all they do. Our children LOVE going to school each day and have already learned quite a bit in Latin and Mandarin as well as the basic subjects.
The Cambridge School is by far one of the most beautiful examples of excellence in teaching and love of learning. Students at The Cambridge School are inspired, encouraged, and work toward excellence while at the same time are pushed in loving care to develop their character. Teachers at The Cambridge School are life-long learners themselves and therefore value instilling a true inquisitiveness in their students. TCS curriculum is academically challenging and well-rounded. The staff are dependable, resourceful, and loving. The parent community is extremely close and supportive. The administration holds in plain sight the goals and execution of a walk towards loving that which is true, good, and beautiful. And at the center of all this noble work is our Heavenly Father. All it takes is a few visits to The Cambridge School classrooms to realize that it is a rare gem in Southern California education.
While this school is young, we have found the teachers deliver well on the classical Christian model of education. The staff is effective. The teachers are exemplary and passionate about their work. The students demonstrate outstanding learning attitudes. All this done in a godly environment!
Our child loves the school! what more can I say? She is so excited about learning. Finally a school that we can believe in.
I have two sons who attend the Cambridge School, and I am very satisfied with their education and the warm Christian community that is embodied there. The boys are really getting the best of both worlds-- a challenging and rich educational program along with genuine development of their faith. The Cambridge School is the only option for a classical Christian education in San Diego county (as far as I am aware). This method provides a solid and developmentally sound foundation in math and literacy, while also going 'beyond the basics' in art, music, and foreign languages. I volunteer at the school once a week and have observed the children at play, and I have no concerns about playground safety. I highly reccomend the Cambridge School.
My daughter really loves this school. We could not be happier with our choice to send here to Cambridge.
