I cannot say enough positive things about Citrus Glen. It is truly a hidden treasure of a school here in Ventura. There is a great sense of community at this school, and it is very evident in the relationships that the teachers form with their students. The principal (new as of the 2014-2015 school year) is active and can always be found walking the campus and is very personable to students and parents alike. We have experienced teachers in the TK, K and 3rd grade level so far and each one has been fabulous! It is obvious the the teachers and staff take great pride in the work they do at Citrus Glen. The PTA is very involved, and goes does a wonderful job of providing extra programs and events for the students. I could go on and on, but just know that this school is simply awesome!
Mrs. Sherman has been wonderful. She is very patient and has taken her time to touch base with the parents about their children often. She is very approachable and really works with parents to help the kids do well. She expects the kids to behave and takes action to help them make the right choices. My son has loved being in her class and wakes up everyday excited to go to school and learn something new. From what I have seen with the school so far, there is a lot going on with fun activities and field trips for the kids to look forward to. Some thing I wish all schools would do, would be to have a suggested donation at the beginning of the year that covers ALL costs for field trips, class donations, picture day, PTA, etc. It's very difficult to keep track of all the fundraisers and money needed for each child on a weekly basis, with four kids in school this year its been difficult and wearying to hear about yet another fundraiser or check needed.
School is everything a parent can ask for, excellent teachers, staff. Great ratings, and only getting better with time. Completely satisfied. Only eye soar is the principal, Patricia Kingsley is very careless and snotty. If you don't have to deal with her, everything is great!
The best school I've ever had my daughters go to! The principal gave us a campus tour the first day. Teacher met with us after school for an update on student behavior without an appointment. Wonderful staff, teachers & parents!
I have a first grader and a Kindergartener and absolutely love Citrus Glen. The teachers and entire staff have an excellent team attitude and the campus is beautiful. I love to see so many parents involved in the classrooms, playground, library and special events. It is a blessing to be part of this learning community.
I am a proud parent of my little guy in second grade. The last two years have been an adventure for us but, Thanks to this school, it's the best..... Teachers,staff, and principal Watching him be so happy there, is the best for us. citrus glen rocks!!!!
Citrus Glen is a wonderful elementary school. My son has been very blessed by each and every teacher he has had. I am not afraid to go into the classroom and speak to the teachers about how my son could succeed. Each teacher was very open and happy to share anything that would do that. There is no tolerance for things that are unacceptable which is a great staring place for your kids before setting off to jr. high and high school. They learn clear boundaries and what is expected of them. I would highly recommend this school.
Citrus Glen has some really wonderful teachers that support the kids in learning. Kids maintain the same teacher for 1st and 2nd grade (loop). While this may at times be great - other times it makes life difficult. Overall - I love Citrus Glen.
