Dove Hill Elementary School1

My 5th grader son goes to this school, and one day he came home crying saying that someone hit him and stole his money. I was furious and wanted to go with him the next day. The boy looked like he was 2x bigger and really mean, but he did apologize. The school is old looking, and the neighborhood around seems a bit scary.
Exceptional school.Our daughter transferred from Cupertino school district for second grade. First we did not expect much with lower API. However this school seems to be better than our previous school. More home work for kids, stricter and more attentive teachers. School has not area for playing etc compared to our previous one. School bus is free of charge! Our daughter likes school so much. Teachers, principle care for kids very much. I cant think of one negative item to write
Dove Hill is a great school. My son came in as a second grader. He was having some problems with his reading , his writing, and spelling. His teacher stepped up and gave him the extra help he needed. He's now in 3rd grade, his penmanship has greatly improved and comes home with 100% spelling tests and loves to read.
My son attended Dove Hill during first grade in 2008. He did ok but in general did not feel capable / confident. We moved him to Rocketship Si Se Puede Charter in it's first year of operation in 2009. He had a hard time at first adjusting to the increased work load ( I could go into detail here but trust me, on several levels, there is just no comparison / it's no surprise Charter schools far outperform comparable regular public schools ) but quickly cought the bug and excelled. He will not miss a day of homework and does it all on his own. He now knows HE CAN DO IT.
