This school is amazing! Great community of kids and parents. My son transitioned into Kindergarten beautifully. The teachers are warm and welcoming. Principa Jenkins takes the time to get to know each child individually.
CDA is a great school with a great teaching staff, many well- educated and supportive parents and strong principle. We bought a house in the district before we even had kids so totally lucked into one of the best schools in Southern CA. We have twin boys in K and they love their teachers and the other kids and I am blown away but how much they have learned. They are both reading and doing math well above grade level, plus they are creative and artistic, drawing all the time and they love science and growing healthy things to eat. Kudos to Mr. Jenkins and the faculty as well as the great booster club that brings the art, music and gardening programs.
We are thankful each and every day for Principal Jenkins. He has created such a wonderful school for all of our children. He has created a warm, loving, nurturing and highly educational environment that feels more like a community school rather than just another LAUSD property. Being part of the Coeur d'Alene community feels like we hit the lottery of schools in the area. No other charter, magnet or private school could pull us away from Coeur d'Alene. Thank you Mr. Jenkins and all of the great teachers and staff that make this school the only one for us.
