La Cima Charter School is wonderful. They embody many of the values that I have always searched for in a school. There are however a few things that bother me........ I don't like the fact that the children sit on the floor a lot. Their uniforms consist of a burgundy shirt and khaki colored pants. So sitting on the floor is not great on the uniform pants. I also think it's unsanitary. However, education wise, they are great! I would not remove my children for the reason above but I do wish they would find an alternative. I also wish teachers would hang around longer. My children have been attending for 4 years. Although, there are many teachers who are still there, many have left. My kids often talk about their old teachers and how they liked them. It's kind of sad to know that you can't still see those teachers who helped form our views and were so great at what they did. But that is still not a reason that I would remove them. I just wish there was a way that the children could still communicate with the teachers that they so dearly miss.

This schools have a revolving door when it comes to its teachers. I have seen more teachers leave each year than any other school before. The curriculum is inconsistent and many times my students is not recieving the quality education they deserve. Get it together la Cima

This is a wonderful schools, with energetic teachers and administration. The children are just as energetic about learning. My son started with a low er than average reading level and by the end of the year his level was two grades above! This school is enthusiastic about learning and achievement and pass that along to the students. Communication is delivered daily to homes. The teachers are Amazing! I have witnessed how various situations are handled and I was very pleased! I would recommend this school to anyone who is serious about education and wants their child to excel! Go La Cima!
