Develops honesty: Strongly agree
June 01, 2015
Students receive character education throughout the year. Traits such as honesty, integrity, fairness and kindness are taught and students have opportunities to demonstrate their understanding through performance-based exercises. There's also Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) for all students. They are taught school-wide expectations. Those expectations are reinforced by all adults in a positive and meaningful way. These two supports (character education and PBIS) have made a warm, caring, and culturally sensitive environment for students.

Our first born began attending Cedar Valley community school attending Kindergarten in 2014 2015 school year. He did not speak very well English by then. He could recognize some of the letters of the alphabet and the numbers. He could not write or read anything in English. The work of the amazing teachers and stuff in the school he is writing and skiped 1 level at the first testing and 2 levels at the second. He is now fully prepared for first grade. Not to mention he goes with smile every day to school. I see a really bright light in his future because of the hard work teachers and stuff do to set up all those kids for a excellent start in life.

Cedar Valley is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers and staff who really care about their students. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and continue to look for ways to improve and enhance their practice. Our students represent our World community with many languages spoken. That diversity is honored every day in many different ways. It is a pleasure to be part of the Cedar Valley family.

I, like most of my colleagues, CHOOSE to teach at Cedar Valley because we love what we do and we love the students we serve. I've taught at other schools in the Edmonds School District as well as other Districts in Washington and out of state. Most of those schools were great schools, but none compare to Cedar Valley in terms of teacher commitment and quality of instruction. Cedar Valley is truly my favorite school and it is a special place for children to learn and grow.

The staff commitment to implementing a positive environment for students is evident. Students love school wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. They have the opportunity to earn tokens/rewards for appropriate behavior in an engaging educational atmosphere.

I attended Cedar Valley Community School for 3 years. From 5th grade to 8th grade. All the staff are very caring and want nothing but a good education for each and every one of the students. I am now a Senior at Lynnwood High School and I still go visit C.V.. The school has always provided after school programs to help students with class projects. They really capture the kids hearts, I know this because they captured mine. (: --Amber Tolbert

I feel Cedar Valley Community School is a good school. All the teachers that I have dealt with, are very passionate about there students education. Any parents that complain about the teachers in this school, obviously haven't been in the classroom to see what they are up against. Which brings me to the sad fact of the small handful of parent volunteers at Cedar Valley. I strongly believe that the more involved a parent is with their childs schooling, the better student they will become. Perhaps parents should jump in and give a hand instead of pointing blame. As the students get older they seem to be increasingly disrespectful and dissruptive during teaching time. Children should be taught to be respectful in the home, so that children that are there to learn can actually do so without the disruption.

Good school, great teachers, I think the major thing this school needs is more activities for the middle schoolers.

I personally would never send my child to this school again. The teachers, most of them, are good, however parental involvment seems to be discouraged. I tryed many times to talk to school officials, and my child's teacher but was brushed off every time. I also felt that if they did not like what I had to say they would react as if I had never spoke. The instructors and officials of this school seem to work as a unified unit, which is good, but not if you diagree with any of their beliefs or views of your child. Good luck on getting them to think you may know your child better than they do. Maybe it gets better as your child gets older but I do not intend to wait 'till then.

This school needs work. The teachers are good, but their form of discipline is a bit skewed. They treat the students equally. The school is new and has a nice layout, but the quality of the education needs improvement.

Since my children started attending Cedar Valley this year (2004) I've had nothing but problems and frustrations. We moved from a King County elementary and quickly realized that this school is a whole year behind King County academically. The over achieving children are kept back and the children who need extra help aren't given any. The lunch program is a joke, the children pay $2.00 for lunches and most of the time there isn't any lunch left and the kitchen staff does a poor job of throwing a few items together and calling it a lunch (oranges, cheese sandwich, and crackers). There is no cooperation from the administration of this school and when you call to speak to someone you get an answering machine. I would tell anyone who has a choice not to enroll their child into this school if you care the smallest bit about their education.
