From the education point of view, I would say you have to be lucky if your kid gets a good teacher. if not then you need to work hard for your kid to do good in academics. This school does not have many enrichment activities such as spelling bee, after school music classes, Public Speaking etc. which is very common in many schools of same potential. Also they don’t have many online subscriptions for kids to work on at home. They should invest more money into these online programs and I am sure parents will be willing to donate to support them. I also don’t see any PTA in this school though there is something called HSC.
School rank went down in recent 2015 CA test assessment ( check out schooldigger.com). This school staff needs to work hard to maintain its reputation
We moved into this neighborhood with so many doubts in mind. The neighborhood itself is a reflection of how the school is! Hands down its a happy valley!
My kidis loving it. We moved him from "private" school. .the teacher's are all very experienced and the recent addition of new school to the school district is sure to benefit Country lane. I loved the diversity and also the overall S.T.E.A.M
( Science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) program! I don't know about the api rating, I think I did a good thing researching a little bit more abt the school program!
My daughter has been at CL from Kindergarten through now 4th grade and it's been a wonderful experience. The teachers have all been great and caring. The school is very diverse with a lot of parent involvement.
My son started Kindergarten at Country Lane this year. So far we love the school and especially his teacher. The volunteer community is very active at this school, which makes things run very smoothly in the classroom and at the school. I also like the diversity of students at this school. There is a good cultural mix. Overall we love the school.
Too much concern over funding versus delivering education. Principal is not approachable. Parent volunteers are putting in too much work. Some teachers are great, esp 3rd grade. My child is happy at school so that's a positive. However they need to challenge the child in STEM education.
Great diversity, motivated and encouraging teachers, a sizable parent volunteer community and excellent academic results. Couldn't ask for anything better than this! I hope the school maintains just the right balance it currently has and not lose essence like a lot of Cupertino schools have in the rat race to bump up their academic scores.
