    "I just want to say that that I'm an 8th grade student and I've had a wonderful, successful 3 years in this school. The experiences that I've learned and shared have been unforgettable. The teachers, staff and principal at Cavallaro have been great. Maybe there was just a couple of times things didn't go as planned but overall everyone really showed me that they care and their involvement in my home, school work etc.. The area is very nice and safe as well. I would recommend this school to others. Thank you."

    "I currently attend this school as an 8th grader. Let me say one thing to all you future Cavallaro students. This "All For One And One For All" nonsense you've heard about is utter rubbish. Teachers and staff pretend to care for you and make you believe that they're on your side; yet, when the real trouble comes, they won't back you up. In fact, they start singling you out and ostracizing you until it feels like you're all alone in this cruel world. You can't trust anyone to watch you back since other students are mere trash waiting to grow up on welfare. Believe me, I went through 3 years of this torture that deteriorates your mental state at an unflagging rate. Do NOT come to this school if you value your intelligence."

    "i dont like this school 4 many reasons. in math class the teacher wont let u sharpen ure pencils in class, if she dosent like u she wont let u get a tissue 4 ure nose. my teacher in our 40 min math class period, spends 20 min screaming at students over nonsense! & giving us lectures on why were SO disrespectful meanwhile shes the one thats disrespectful. she is taking time out of class over screaming and blaming us students for nonsense. also she is my afterschool teacher & when she helps me with my hw some of those answers are wrong. in la, compared 2 last yr it wasnt bad, but test prep wise very! we bearly did test prep because she was 2 busy having us finish our class reading bk. in ss class, our projects in 2 write a poem, rap,song,etc. thats hw not projects. also she asks the class many times wat our hw should be. many times she dosent even have our lesson plan so we need 2wait 15min so she can get it done. in sci class, his class is so boring that kids sleep in it. he spends 15min talkin about his daughter. we do no labs, & if we do we examine rocks. also he barely gives us projects, & for 2 quarters he didn't check our hw. this school needs help & i hope they c this review!"

    "Unfortunately through out the years I have seen a deterioration in this school. The teachers are not reaching out to the students and parents. It seems that it is not as organized as far as finding new strategies and new teaching methods for students to advance more. I am very disappointed and hope they implement new programs...."
