This school has a serious problem with communicating to parents. At one hand you receive countless automated calls of needless information and on the other, you can never speak to the principal or vice principle easily. The 'gifted' teacher misses school way too often. Not extracurricular activities. Children are bored there and are thus susceptiple to disciplinary problems.
Seeing the reviews below it seems this school is a 'hit or miss'. My nieces went to this school about 10 years ago and it was 'excellent' back then. My son started 2nd Grade this year at CDW and the last 5 months have been a nightmare. My son has dealt with a bully since the start of the school year and no brought it to my attention until he had a blow out. I am not happy with the tactics used, and there is a great lack of stimulating activities, after school activities, organization and communication. And last but not least, My son's class had a field trip, but only 25 kids were selected to go and 5 were to stay since it was a 'free trip'. The kids were told that 'the selection was done fairly'. 5 kids were left out from the field trip! Not a good motivational message for the kids! Sorry I definitely don't agree.
My daughter currently attends this school. They have language programs such as Italian. Her teacher Ms. Nicholeau is a great teacher. My daughter has been an honoroll student since she started in this school, her test scores are always above average, so they are teaching her well..No complaints.
My daughter started 2nd grade this year at this school. She did not know how to read yet was passed from grade to greade for 'trying hard'. The teacher she got in this school, Mrs. Reyes, is awesome. My daughter can read now. She went from a D to a high C in reading in just one semester. This teacher is tough but she really cares. I have no complaints at all about this school.
