Amazing school. Incredible leadership from the principle Mr. Jenkins.
Love for Ms. Fielding, our daughter's grade 2 teacher. We moved to CDA mid-year from Canada and the difference is huge - she helped make our daughters transition smooth and successful. She works so hard and you can tell loves the kids and teaching. I really, really love her!
I have nothing but gratitude and admiration for what this school has created and the passion and purpose they put into the school, the community and the kids.
The LAUSD gets a bad rap but but this school is a total gem.
*also big shout out to the booster club! They're incredible.
Thank you Ms Lira for being such a wonderful 1st grade teacher! Our daughter has had a an absolutely amazing learning experience in your class and she absolutely loves coming to school, which is just wonderful to see.
Having volunteered in your classroom many times, I have witnessed first hand how good you are with the kids, never once raising your voice and yet fully commanding their respect. You are truly a role model to them as well as to other teachers at our school. Thank you for your energy and smile every day, you are very much in our hearts!
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.
