This school is not awesome and at the same time very bad and poor quality. Teachers don't pay attention to parents and even the counselor doesn't pay attention to it. Grades are low but sometimes it can go up if the teachers give more homework to kids. The principal does not "cares" about the children or maybe even the teachers. So its kind of sorry not many schools have high quality skills. The thing is that this school needs to improve and improve.

My Daughter has gone to Cunningham since she was 4 yrs old . Each child is encouraged to do their personal best. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in each child.

Poor leadership from the school administration and the District. Only concern to cover procedures. No honest interest to make a difference work to improve a dual-languge program to develop bilingual studentes learn two languages. The administration staff enjoy's to target educator careers making teacher's miserable life with a negative work environment. The Principal focus her attention in her favorite teachers,and likes to yell other staff members. Even the secretary has power and yell's too. The Assistant Principal use to ignore students disipline problems with no assisstance for teachers to improve students time engage in the learning process. Children deserve much better attention. Parent's are extremely limited to be involve in the school. Only the Counselor does her best to assit teachers, students and parents and promotes a limited human concern to make a difference work for a better community. Teachers do their best to teach over the administration unlimited power. Student urgently need social skills to develop good citizenship in this great nation of dream opportunities.
