Ventura Park is well organized, has a strong anti-bullying policy, and positive behavior-based instruction. The diversity of students in the school is impressive. Jacob Curtis has been the principal since my son started kindergarten and has done a great job all 5 years. Plus, David Douglas School District still funds an off-site Talented and Gifted program for their students which has been a source of love and excitement for my son since 2nd grade. Very happy with this school!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
There was one year with a not so effective teacher, other than that, all others have been exceptional.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Through the years, the amount of homework has decreased. This year, there is no homework sent home, unless the child is not able to finish the assigned work during class time. The focus is for kids to read in their time at home.

This school is wonderul! I t has improved a great deal in the last several years. It was fine when our oldest went there, but now there is so much community involvement and the teachers are amazing. They take the time to really understand each child and meet them where they are. The school has a garden and two playgrounds and soccer fields and basketball courts, and we are just very pleased with everything. We've seen the caliber of education really skyrocket here.
