Better send a lunch along with your student. I hear they like to starve kids here...

This school is known to allow children to go hungry if for any reason their lunch account is not where it should be. This school, the administration, and the lunch room lasy should be ashamed and held accountable. Common sense should have ruled here ! I would gladly have paid for the childs lunch before I one......let a child go hungry.......and two......embarrass a child in front of his peers. Grow up and accept the responsibilities that you have been given !

This school was great but the office ladies left and they were pretty amazing ....hard shoes to fill . On top of that there is a lot of controlling not listening to the parents petty drama .Thinking about homeschooling this year so I know where my kids are better communication with respect for both parties is a must hope they fix it ..not so much teachers just Maine office :-(.

I have 2 children at CVE and our first year in 2011 was a little bumpy administratively and organization. Since 2012, the addition of a new principal and focus on current and competitive curriculum to challenge and foster students has made a huge difference. The majority of teachers are compassionate and supportive. With a small town, family feel CVE is on it's way to becoming a very desirable school in Snohomish.

I have two students that attend this school and this will be the last year my children attend. I have had so many problems with prinicpal since my eldest son started there. She seems to single out certain kids and once they are in her scope she will find any tiny thing and run with and make it bigger than it really is. My sons first year there I walked into the school find his teacher with her hands wrapped as tight as they could be around my sons wrist holding his arms behind his head walking him face first into a brick wall, when this was brought the the attenton of Meyers she did nothing about it. I cant wait to be out of this school.

We moved here from Oregon and my boys love this school. They made friends very quickly. The teachers have been fantastic and super responsive to mine and my childrens needs. I have no complaints at all. In fact my kids have done better at this school than they ever did at their old school which was rated a "10".

I was not surprised when I saw how many parents complained about CVE! Between my youngest and eldest I ve had a child at CVE for 9 consecutive years. When my eldest was there it was impossible to resolve issues, I had to get the superintendent involved. It s been so much better dealing with the junior high and high schools, the principle and staff have been so much better! Now I m having the same issues with my youngest at CVE, when he had issues that needed resolved. The principle and teachers act patronizing and your not respected as a parent. So I ve again had to go to the superintendent s office. This time we are switching schools. CVE has some of the lowest WASL scores in the district as well as the state. It seems to me they really need to look at making a change with the leadership at CVE!

My child had a 'bumpy ride' in the 1st semester of last year, however Principal Lyla was incredible with how she managed the issue. I commend her for her leadership in a difficult situation. The following two semesters were great and my child excelled. The PTA begs people to assist in volunteering. These are unpaid volunteers and give what they can. Quite possibly they are just simply inexperienced.

The PTA this last year was horrible...where were you? Where was all the fun activities that use to happen a few years back. When were the meetings, I did not hear of any. The kids miss it, the parents miss them. Let someone else run the show if you don't step up to the plate this year! The teachers are still great and some are retiring so young blood should come in slowly. Still over crowded.

We have had 7 yrs(K-6) to use our eldest child as a 'test' to see if things would improve at this school. Shame on us. In my heart I would have loved to see Cascade View be a great school but it needs help and words fall on deaf ears. Best of luck on your decision.

This is an amazing school, with excellent teachers and a great principal. I can't believe all they are able to accomplish, and I appreciate the individual attention children receive. The principal knows so many kids by name and is often there to personally greet and wave goodbye to them. I know it seems like a small thing, but it matters and I know it's not easy for her to block out the time in her day. It seems like there is a real sense of family at Cascade View, and the kids are thriving.

I've been extremely patient with this school for the last 6 years. They have had challenges with teacher retention, curriculum and teacher/student qualification. Every school has these challenges, but it is how the situations are handled that counts. Not only does Cascade View not communicate on the issues directly affecting our children, but they deliberately hide this information and only let it out at the last minute. This unfortunately comes too late in being able to make intelligent decisions regarding our children's education and future. Three years running there have been major changes in our children's teachers/curriculum, that had we known, we would have made different decisions regarding their future. This problem is systemic and starts with the principal. Until that change is made, this school is doing a disservice to our children. We are done with Cascade after this year.

I am so surprised to read the negative comments on this school! Our children have been so happy there over the last 6 years, and we feel they have received an excellent foundation to their education. The teachers are excellent, the principal is fantastic and the environment has been unmatched from the standpoint of safety and discipline. I would (and have) highly recommend this school!

I agree! and i want to add to the last persons comment...Just try to get any resolution at the superintendent office, it will not happen. This school and district are horrible! it is amazing that every parent in a certain class, can meet with the principal on the same issues and she will never acknowledges that there is even a problem. Same line to every parent. 'Oh you are the first to have ever complained about this' or 'i have never heard that before' even though you know many parents have gone to her about this exact issue!

I have been at the school for 6 yrs. It kills me to say, we are leaving next year. We have 2 kids in the school and have hoped that it would get better with parent involvement. No changes. We are not going to have our next 2 kids go through what our eldest has. Yes, I know there are going to be challenges where ever we go, but I am hoping to find a school with good leadership that listens to concerns. Too many good teachers have left or are going to be leaving this coming year.

I pulled my kids out of CVE and put them in another school in the district. What a difference! Wow! The atmostphere is better, the teachers are wonderful and in tune with the kids and parents. The principal is fantastic. While there are some great teachers at CVE, most of the teachers dont' care and the principal heads up that sentiment. If you love your kids, don't send them to Cascade View Elementray.

Great parent participation in PTA, but quality of education is less than average. There are both excellent and weak teachers, and if you aren't lucky enough to get the good teacher for the grade, your child will suffer the consequences. The principle seems great when you meet her, but if you don't follow up with her, then nothing will change. Consistency within grade levels varies greatly, and overall there is great lack of leadership in the school. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone except special needs kids. There are excellent programs for this population.

04/05 was our first year at Cascade View, and we were really pleased. The staff was always friendly, and the senior administration very open and approachable. I felt that all of my concerns were addressed quickly. I loved my kids teachers; Riefers, Briskee, and McPeak. The principal is a super women. I think that any school you attend where staff knows who you are and who your kids are, and not because your kids are in trouble, is great. It shows a real connection to the kids, parents, and community.

It's amazing how a parent who doesn't have anything to do with a particular school can get on this site, and make comments/rate about the school. I wouldn't go by any of these comments, you need to find out for yourself by personally viewing the school atmosphere. Why would a parent want their child to attend a school, where so many parents that are 'whinning.' Sounds like a private school is more up your alley or transfer to another public school where I am sure you will experience the same problems or worse.

I think Cascade View Elementary school has been a wonderful school for my children to attend. I feel my children are safe, and they love the experience of learning. The adult participation has been great, their PTA is the best! I would encourage them to hold less fundraisers and sponser more assemblies and programs. Yes, the school is overcrowded, but those needs will be addressed if the second bond is passed. It would be nice to have a separate gym, and cafeteria, as well as a computer lab. Classrooms would be smaller in size also. I have noticed the testing scores are increasing, and that the teachers are being trained to accomplish to reach the goals of the WASL test. I am saddened that all Washington State Schools now have to concentrate on so many tests, it seems precious limited learning time is being used to take tests all the time.

Overall Cascade View is not a bad school. We still have a long way to go. Principal needs to act in behalf of the parents more. The new school that is being built won't have much impact on our school. The rate the houses are being built it will be years before we see relief. When they remodel our school it will be set up to house 650+ children. This is the new standard for the district. You can figure it will probably be overcrowded at 800+ then. The biggest thing the school needs is a computer cirriclum and a better reading program, not mentioning a new math program. New parents moving to our area are shocked. Specially when they were at the district next door and they face the same overcrowding problems, but manage to have more to offer the kids academically. I am tired of hearing excusses, get creative and make room. I'm involved!

Here is the real deal. This school could (and possibly will) be a great school. But we don't have the leadership we need. We don't have the full support of the district we need. We do have a large group of parent volunteers, out of necessity. We do have Bathrooms without doors. So children will not use the bathroom all day for fear of being heard by their classmates. We do have the most horrible lunch food with insufficient time to eat it.We do have a principal who greets the children in the morning, smiling, waving, and doing nothing about these issues. I know.I have gone to the teacher, principal, district and PTA members. Who by the way agree with me.

To get the true sense about CV, a parent needs to visit the school, and talk with the principal and staff. For further information, contact PTA members, the Snohomish school board, and district office. Families have moved into the area to attend CV because the environment is very nurturing. Currently 652 students are enrolled with 20% special needs students, since CV is the core special needs school for the region. WASL scores include these tests also, lowering the schools overall performance. Yet, CV has meet the federal progress standards. CV is involved in a school improvement process that researches successful schools, and implements these strategies used in these systems. CV uses district adopted curriculum, including a new social studies program this year and science adoption this spring. The principal has always been supportive of the PTA, and is responsible for implementing state, federal and board directives, managing all school operations.

I've been very happy with Cascade View and its staff. They are truly there for the children, but also need to follow standardized rules. Sure there has been minor problems here and there, but you always discuss the problems with the teacher first, then go to the principal if needed. The school is overcrowded, but with the new elementary being built in the next two years, it should ease that situation up. The SITAP committee has set goals that the faculty is working hard on to achieve. WASL scores are always a concern, but are improving too. With the PTA's help, extra resouces have been purchased to help accomplish some of these goals. The school and district is always asking for parent involvement, I suggest parents that are upset or unhappy start getting involved directly by attending school board meetings, PLUSS meetings, joining the PTA and/or helping around the school.

I agree with many of the comments. This school has been a disappointment to me and my family. It also is a disappointment to many other parents I have talked to. I have been in this school for 5 years with multiple children. The only help this school is willing to give is only to increase the WASL test scores. How about the fact that the children are not getting it. Nothing is being done! And I mean NOTHING! The school improvement plan is a joke! Studies, Research, Data Collection... that's it! Meanwhile our test scores have dropped each year. Even during this improvement plan. How about look at a school whose scores are high, find out what they are doing, and lets do it too! No need for research and data collection for that! It's time to do something!Lyla is not willing to step out of her comfort zone!

I am very please with the quality of this school. They have address the special needs of my children. When I had concerns, they were resolved quickly. I have nothing but praise for the staff; starting from the pricipal on down to the teachers and to the staff. My children have been held to a standard by the teachers and have done better for it. The pricipal is very much involved with all aspects of the school. Including afterschool activities. The teachers are a part of the after school activities too. We have a great group of parents/volunteers who sponsor so many activies to involve the familes and better the school. We are blessed to have a school filled with teachers that are the ones our children will look back and say 'she/or he made a difference in my life. I am very pleased with Casecade View.

This is my first year having a child at Cascade View Elementary and I'm very pleased with my child's teacher (Mrs. Gates), the staff and the level of parent involvement. I think that it is great that Ms. Campbell and the office staff greet the kids every morning before school. I find her to be a very approachable and warm principal. I'm very excited to have my children at the school for the next seven years and I fully support our principal and the entire CVE staff! I also think that the PTA and Booster club do a great job with building school spirit and offering activities that strengthen the CVE community. As a parent, I totally encourage other parents to be involved at school and volunteer some time in the classroom and at extracurricular activities.

I, too, thought CV was a great school at first. That was until my child had a problem. That's when I find out the principal's smile was phony. Everything I said was dismissed as 'simplistic'. I was not listened to nor supported. I talked to many other parents and found out the overwhelming feeling was one of dissatisfaction. For those who haven't had any problems there, you will never know how bad it is. You are the lucky ones. My kid is thriving in another school now. I agree that most of the staff and teachers at CVE are great. The problem is the leadership.

I too, am upset with the workings of this school. But I have seen an improvement with Parent participation and volunteering. This can change a school completely! Our school, sadly, is mixed with excellent teachers or very poor teachers. You are either very happy or horrified with who your child gets. A teacher is also what makes the school. A good principal should respond and follow up regarding multiple complaints about a teacher. I have found that this isn't happening at CV. Not at least, in a way that parents are backed up. I suggest getting in your child's classroom and watch what's going on. Listen to the lessons and talk with the teacher and other parents. There is more power in numbers. The chances of you being heard are a lot better. This site isn't about firing a principal, it is about getting the best education and leadership for our children!

I'm amazed by the ignorance prevailent on this site! With little research, you'd easily unravel half the complaintants 'apparent' mysteries. It would be great if the other half would at least try to be part of the solution instead of 'the' problem. Not doing things 'your' way, doesn't make this is a poor school. Faculty has to answer to more than just 'you!'. I've been involved with CVE since it's exception, and had four children attend under two principals. Current leadership is much more ammenable than the former. It's always the 'squeaky wheel' that wants to be heard, 100:1. Shame on those that are using this site to fire a principal. Issues are much bigger. Did you vote? Did you call your State Representitive? Kudos to those that took the time to make positive comments. No school is perfect. CVE has always made the effort. Good job Mrs Campbell! Thanks!

My advise to anyone having problems with Cascade View, would be to go directly to the district and speak with the superintendent. I believe he is a fair man and will listen to the concerns everyone is having. I felt he listened to my concerns. If this many people are frustrated, I would guess he has already heard form many of you. I agree, something needs to be done at this school. It is obviously not working the way it is now. Too many upset parents, very low test scores, administration issues and teacher quality.

To all of you who have a glowing reportabout the school and principal, you obvious have not had a bad encounter with the school. To us who have, it has been a anguishing process to go through. I am glad you have had a positive experience, but not everyone has. Who is to say we haven't gone to the district already? Nothing is being done about our concerns. This is a site to rate our school. And that is what people are doing. Shouldn't people be concerned if the ratings are either poor or excellent? That tells me that many have had negative experiences at our school. If you have gone to the district and gone to the administrators and nothing is being done and many more parents are having the same opinions and or experiences what is a parent to do?

My children are new to Cascade View and have attended three different schools prior to coming here.We have been fortunate that they were all excellent schools. While I have never been unfortunate enough to fear poor administration at any of these facilities, I have developed a fear of parents who feel they are more capable of managing staff, classrooms, or curriculum than the people who have the experience and education for just such a task. I am not naive enough to think that poor administrators do not exist but, should one be discovered, I would hope the parents would bring their concerns to the Superintendent/School Board members where their concerns can be handled in a professional manner. It seems that this site is little more than a venue for mudslinging and that can not be good for student or staff morale.

Am I crazy to think children need more than 15 minute to eat lunch. Kids need a rest period to feed themselves... for their growth, health and brain function! This is crazy that at a place where children come first, they are made to rush through this important time. Parents, I encourage you to complain about this issue to the school. Many parents didn't even know this. Maybe the test scores would go up if they had some brain food! Thay also need to over haul what they serve for hot lunches... Yuck!

I m amazed at how much blame is being placed on the principal, much of which doesn't belong with her. It s the school district that s responsible for hiring and firing teachers, for class size and the number of computers in classrooms. Your anger needs to be directed at the correct source instead of at the easiest target. No problem has ever been solved by personally attacking an individual. Mrs. Campbell s clothing is far from inappropriate. She doesn t wear revealing or unprofessional clothing, rather it s inviting and makes her welcoming and friendly for the children. I m shocked by the behavior of the parents who have posted here. There are plenty of people who think that CVE is a wonderful place. For the record, these comments are not being posted by someone who is an employee, but by someone who thinks that Mrs. Campbell is the best principals that CVE has ever seen.

I also know several families who have removed their children from Cascade View. I don't think I would go that far but I do have concerns also. There is a big difference in the quality of the teachers here. Some are so great and some are a nightmare, even to the point where parents are anguishing when they see the teacher picks and the beginning of the school year. I think the principal really needs to listen to the parents when we are all wanting a certain teacher. What is that saying to her? I agree with the comments on this site. Some are so far on the positive side, that they must be employed at the school or the principal her self. They don't have children at the school presently I think they would change their mind if they did.

I am also wondering what some of the parents comments on this site are based on. I have had experience with several schools in the past 10 years, and find that Cascade View's staff is exceptional. The library has lexile levels on the books, new computers and reading test programs. It is inconceivable to think that technology can be taught in every classroom with only one teacher. A computer lab which each class visited once a week would be super if we had the room. Of course our principal and all of us would love to have smaller class sizes, more teachers and less overcrowding, but that is a district and state wide issue. I have seen many positive changes in the school over the past 5 years, and both my children are passing the wasl tests with flying colors.

I am amazed at some of the comments from parents. I have children in Cascade View and I love the school. No school is perfect by any means. I have had some issues in the past and Mrs Campbell as well as the rest of the staff have been wonderful in helping resolve them in record time. I agree there is over crowding. But most all schools have that problem these days. My largest complaint is lunches and they need to be rectified. Our students are not receiving adequate time to eat. They are rushed through and told to leave even if they are not finished. They should be allowed to finish eating. They have more time for recess then they do for a healthy lunch time. I would rather my children get a healthy lunch then extra recess time. As parents we can help change this.

First of all let me say that the ladies in the office are super! I have had a problem with the principal also. My issues were disregarded. I was made to feel I was not in the majority. The longer I have been in this school I realize that I am the majority! There are teachers there that should be gone. The teaching material is outdated. There is no special help for kids who are either not getting it or are bored because they are excelling. Yes the principal does greet the kids with a smile, that is what she does. But have a real issue... and you will not get backed up! She is friendly till you need her to do her job. Then she is not! I think this school would be better off with different type leadership.

For those of you looking at CVE as a possible school for your child - look elsewhere is my advise to you. This school lacks leadership. Many of the grades have some fantastic loving teachers. The Principal needs to move on to another line of work. She brings down the school by being critical of parents, unsupportive of the PTA and the Booster Club, and indifferent about the outdated educational materials and the lack of computer labs. She cannot stand conflict nor does she seek to resolve it. As a parent you are on your own in this school. I have pulled my kids from CVE and encourage others to do the same. It is time Dr. Mester heard us.

I have had three children attend CVE and have had both good and bad experiences. My oldest had a great teacher (who is no longer there) and my middle child had one amazing teacher (no longer there) and one horrible teacher ( no longer there) and two mediocre teachers ( one of which is no longer there) My youngest has had two fabulous teachers.(Both of which are still there) It seems to all depend on which teacher your child gets because if you have problems. I also know two families who have moved their children to other schools in the district due to the lack of leadership. Mrs.McMaster,Mrs. Perron, Mrs Wheeler,Mrs.Plog,and Mrs Bartlehiemer are all creative, kind teachers who care deeply for the kids.

My kids have attended public & private schools in 3 states over 18 yrs, 6yrs at CV. I would like higher school scores, but I do see emphasis to improve. We've had a few challenging teachers in our 6 years here, just as we find other challenging situations in life. In those instances we had to put in extra effort to adapt, but learning always occurred, intelectually and inter-personally. I wish our school was on the cutting edge instead of catching up, but my child is thriving here. Our children still have bright futures and CV has been a solid building block for them. This is a nurturing environment where the principal greets you with a warm smile and a hug in the morning and mainstream students are richer by interacting with special needs students. The negative principal comments surprise me, I find her very professional and competent.

This school overall has been a disapointment. Most of the teachers are great working with the kids and care about them alot and do a great job teaching overall, given what they have to work with. I do not feel that the principal pushes hard enough in getting things improved. The curriculum is terrible and not challenging enough. The school has no computer time for the children unless the teachers want to give them some time, but it is in no way part of the curriculum and they do not have enough in each classroom. The classes that my child has been in at most have 2 computers and no actuall work has been done on them. The principal just says there is not enough room in each classroom, when I have seen different. All children are being left behind here. Much more can be done and it is not.

Parents, be aware if you have any conflicts or issues of any kind with either a teacher or administrators you will not get any resolution at this school. I know personally that the 'leadership' or should i say lack of leadership at this school will not back you up. This is a no conflict zone. When will this school, district wake up? Our kids are failing! i don't blame the teachers, some teachers are wonderful! but the quality of the teaching material is terrible. I am one that want to pull my kids out too. Thought i don't have the option to home school and private school is too costly for me, where is a parent to go? This is a good site to state issues and frustrations and hear what others have to say, but does it go anywhere? Does anyone who can do anything about it read it?

I am disappointed in this school. I think the volunteers are great and make the school. Everyday I am at school I see the same ladies helping in classes, walking kids around, in the office doing projects for PTA or a class. I applaud you all. As for the quality of the education? I think it is terrible. WASL or not, we are not teaching the basics, not spending enough time on the basic foundation of math and reading. Too many kids in each class. Why don't the kids have a math book to take home? There is no reference material... This has been a frustrating 4 years and I have to start it over with a kindergartner next year. I am hoping something will change soon. This is unacceptable!

My daughter attended CVE. She had wonderful teachers. The entire staff including Mrs. Campbell, the teachers, Paras, secretaries, and Mr. Streby and Mr. Jones are committed to all of the children of the school. It saddens me to see such negative comments regarding the staff and school. The curriculum is determined by the District, not the Principal. We are all frustrated by the overcrowded classrooms and funding for our schools; however it is the State Legislature you should be complaining about as it determines funding for schools not the Principal. Mrs. Campbell has always been supportive of the staff and students. The teachers are teaching to the best of their abilities, but with the state placing so much emphasis on the WASL, many teachers throughout the state feel they are having to teach to a test and don't have time to incorporate everything they would like to teach.

I had two children in CVE for three years and chose to pull them out this year. The lack of leadership and of cohesive goals cause a steady decline in trust, security, and overall education. While there are a number of caring and highly qualified teachers there, they cannot compete against the school's obvious lack of direction, unity, and inability to progress. Conflicts are not just avoided by the Principal rather parents are left to feel inferior and uninformed about their own children. CVE certainly has potential due to some truly wonderful teachers working there, however, until there is new leadership the school will continue to fail at meeting our children's educational and emotional needs. The Principal is inappropriate in her dress, speech, and behavior with the children, the staff, and the parents. My children were not cared for here and my concerns dismissed. My kids are doing great this year!

I am amazed at the negative reviews on this site for Cascade View. I have no idea what school Mike and the rest of you are attending. In over 25 years of being around schools and educators I have never found a more talented and caring group of teachers and administrators. The teachers are of the highest quality and commitment, by the way they are recruited and hired by the principal, and demonstrate on a daily basis their desire to assist children in learning. IMHO the Principal has assembled an outstanding group of teachers and clearly demonstrated her leadership by doing so in the process. She has demonstrated in numerous situations her willingness to address issues important to all parents while still trying to meet the special needs of one struggling student. If my kids were of elementary age I would gladly send them to CV!

I am very unhappy with what I have been seeing at Cascade View. There are some really good teachers, but we also have some poor teachers that have been there too long. What is a parent to do? The administration is lacking leadership. Students have no time for the basics of eating lunch. The scores are terrible and depressing. I have had alot of discouragement in this school. I look at Skylines scores and wonder what are they doing that we aren't??

What are we teaching to our kids that isn't getting through? Our test scores keep going down. I think it has something to do with the poor leadership we have at our school. I have had personal experience with the principal and did not get the results that I had hoped for. I am worried. My child is the one who is suffering because of it. I spent more and more time at home teaching my child, when they should be getting this information at school. The teachers just don't have the time to help individuals. That is where our schools are breaking down. I would like to see some type of after school help of some sort for the kids who are not getting it in class.

We have three children, one of which is attending this school now. Our older girls are wonderful, well adjusted adults with great career goals ahead of them, thanks in large part to the great teachers we've had at Cascade View! My daughter that attends Cascade View now is a very giving child. She has wonderful relationships with all her teachers, current and former, as well as with Mrs. Campbell, the principal and all the other caring people at Cascade View, from the librarians to the janitor. KUDOS TO ALL OF YOU!! You've helped mold two bright young ladies into upstanding community members, one of which was taught by the teachers of Cascade View, the fine art of giving -- she's now in the medical field through the US Armed Forces! Our little one is going into the fifth grade and is well on her way!
