This school is accepting of everyone students and parents alike. It teaches children and adults the importance of cooperation and supporting each other through good and bad times. The community welcomes the class of challenged students with enthusiasm and caring.
We belong in a wonderful community and school district that works together to save our teachers. Our children have dedicated parents and teachers striving to protect their education despite any devastating budget cuts.
Students come out of the McAuliffe prepared to take on the world. They learn how to collaborate with other students and with adults. They are confident, self-assured and well-rounded.
Great community at this school - families get to know each other and continue to be part of the school community for years afterwards. Innovative use of email. Lots of field trips that are blended in to the curriculum.
McAuliffe is the model for educating young people to think, respect and act. The curriculum is driven by educators who practice and model the process of learning, of struggling with life issues and holding oneself responsible for creating workable outcomes. This effort on the part of staff creates an environment where 'failures' can be managed as part of a process, are expected and can be learned from rather than something of which to be afraid. this is the kind of education I wish was available to all. I believe 'we' would be much better equipped to work through our local, state and world issues if we practiced the processes and model which makes McAuliffe the unique institution of learning it is.
Christa McAuliffe Elementary School and all other schools in Cupertino school district are excellent. The schools have best teachers, hard working students and wonderful parents.
My son went to Christa McAuliffe School. He enjoyed his school life at McAuliffe. It was precious time for him. Great school! We realy love this school.
It not only provides a good education but teaches the children to be good citizens of the world
It gives more individualized educational plans..not a one plan fits all approach to learning. They use creative techniques to teach math et all. I love their attention to each child.
The school to choose if you believe that children should learn more than just math, reading, and writing.
This school offers non-traditional learning. It uses real-life experience for children to learn.
School that feels like you are going to the house of someone in your family
- teachers pay attention to individual difference - the school and parents form a great community where everyone support each other
My son learned self confidence and self motivation as well as how to be creative. He's now in a private college-prep high school and getting straight A's. Wonderful school!!
I love the developmental, constructivist, hands on, experiential, 21st century classroom curriculum and the wonderful community.
