this school is wonderful, safe, and has the best teachers. my daughter had mary kay brudos and she is a hands on teacher and recognized that all children do not learn the same. she gave me insight into my daughter and nurtured her. my daughter's confidence level went through the roof. i could not have asked for a better experience.

I have two doughters and both attended Chamiza Elementary. The teachers were so good to one of my doughters assisting her on achiving her goals to graduate. My doughter had a learning disability and by providing all the assistant she was able to write and read. The Special Ed classes during her years at the school were very dificult for us and the school as well. My doughter was able to graduate from high school and also attended collage. With out the school assistance and the teachers devoted attention to students with some disabilities , the student never will be a very funtional and active member of the community. I commend the school for a job well done with students that face learning disabilities.

My oldest son began kindergarten this year and I was, to say the least, very nervous about starting at a public school. I had him enrolled in a private school, but withdrew him before the school year started. Chamiza has exceded my expectations!!!! His teachers Mrs. Blea and Mrs. Garcia are exceptional. I do have to add that the other kindergaten teachers at Chamiza also fit this category. I am pleased to witness their kindness, exceptional teaching ability , and balance of dicipline blended into every day the children attend school. I have researched the other grades and I'm just as impressed. I know I made the right decision.

Chamiza is a great school with excellent teachers. My two kids have go there and have had great years there. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The parent involvement allows for nice extras like book fairs and a yearly jog-a-thon in addition to other things that are fun for the kids. We could not be happier with the academics and the safe, happy environment.

My child has attended Chamiza Elementary for the last 3 years. It's a terrific school, and the teachers are always willing to go over and beyond to help their students. The teachers are wonderful about keeping a great parent teacher relationship, which is great because if their should be anything wrong, you will know about it immediately, plus when your child is doing great, you will know of it and it makes you feel really good. I would recommend this school to everyone. Our community is really awesome and we have our school to prove it. Thanks proud parent of a chamiza student.

Chamiza is a great school. Both of my children attended this terrific elementary school. The Teachers are wonderful, and the staff is very helpful. This school encourages parents to be very hands on and make your child feel very special.

Professional and dedicated staff and high parent involvement are all big at Chamiza. The population is somewhat economically diverse and pretty middle class. What is lacking is after-school programs, only a handful. The teachers have collaboration time in which they share with the staff the best of their professional development. The PTA is as good as its leadership, but parent participation in all other aspects of the school promotes a very good environment. Great public elementary school!
