Chaparral Elementary School 5

I am a student at chaparral in fifth grade. My teachers were: Kindergarten: Fogelman First grade: Lampert Second grade: Fitzner Third grade: Yollis Fourth grade: Krauss Fifth grade: Costantino All of these teachers are sweet, kind, educational, and understanding. I know that anyone who says that Chaparral is a bad school is not a parent of a Chaparral student and certainly not a student! I am going to Middle School next year and am very sad to be leaving Chaparral. I will always have Chaparral in my heart, and all my teachers. I think that Chaparral is definitely one of the best schools in LA.

Great school, with caring teachers. The principal is very involved and she is into using new technologies. They started music and choir last year, which I hope they keep. We have a great art teacher. If they be able to keep the ratio low, this is a great school.

Great school community, but I do think the class rooms are too much for one teacher and no Aid. It's easy for the kids to fall behind if you do not do consistant homework at the home beyond what was handed out.

Amazing school community. The teachers are creative, hardworking and nurturing. The parents are very involved. PFC makes it possible for lots of technology, art, PE and music program!

DIRE SITUATION. There is a cadre of under motivated, change-resistant teachers who hold tremendous power at the school and have held back progress and made life on campus very difficult for other teachers, students, and parents. The PTA group sometimes means well, but is focused almost completely on fundraising, gossip, and popularity. The campus is ugly and ill-kept. Our midwestern small town had much more pride in keeping the school beautiful and cheerful for kids. Sad.

VERY DISAPPOINTING! Educational approaches are traditional. Many teachers are just coasting - teaching the same dry material they have for 20 years, with minimal interaction and creativity required from students. The culture at school is warm, but there are many disgruntled parents who feel let down by teachers and administration. Our kids have friends at other local schools who have great art and music classes in school and can't understand why Chaparral does not offer these opportunities.

A top rate school with excellent teachers. One of the wonderful things about Chaparral is that it is the center of the community and the kids grow up together.

This school is excellent. Home prices have stayed stable in a bad economy due to everyone knowing about the great public schools in Calabasas. Teachers and parents and grandparents are all caring. Our grandsons love school and maybe the mother who complained should have volunteered to know more of what is going on. Our grandboys have started with K and now in grade 4 and grade 1. What a wonderful environment to learn. Teachers can be emailed and promptly answer parents concerns.

The families are obnoxious, with poor values, the former principal very visibly cared little about anything but herself, and while some of the teachers are very good, some are mediocre. My daughter had first grade teachers who had NO reading groups and days went by when no reading instruction went on. My child is on grade level only because of the amount of time I put into helping and teaching her at home. It's like the hours she's there are wasted. And their "enrichment" program that the ridiculous PFC is always begging for money to keep consists of games played at PE and the same musical singing program at the holidays that all schools have done for generations.

Great environment. Teachers and parents that care. Great fundraising for programs that have been cut in other schools.
