    "My children have been students at Cedars for the last four years or so.. They've had exceptional experiences there and these positive lessons will remain with them for the rest of their lives! The teachers are very nurturing and caring, the student body very close, and the academics are rigorous! My son said in July, 'I love the summer, but I cant wait for school to begin'. This is truly a testiment to this amazing school. The Superintendent, principal, teachers, and front office secretary all are special people. The principal is . . .WONDERFUL and has help take this school several levels forward. She is so outgoing and understanding. The teachers are passionate about learning, and in turn the children are too. They also have afterschool programs where my children further their education through field trips, technology, music, and sports. Overall, a great public charter school education compared to other public and private school choices."

    "I love and appreciate the team here at Cedars! This has been a challenging year for my son and I due to family transitions and I truly feel like the decision we made to come to Cedars has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. My son likes coming to Cedars and I believe that is largely due to the fact that he feels loved and supported here, which has been extremely helpful for us this year. "It takes a village to raise a child", and I feel privileged to be a part of this village. Thank you Cedars for your continued support!"

    "I have to disagree with the post on June 25, 2013. I am a parent and have been a parent for the past 7 years. I have never experienced any issues with the communications with the school or any of the teachers. The school does parent orientation at the beginning of every year where they go over the various ways to receive communication, they give parents access to review grades online any time, and the teachers communicate well through email. All a parent needs to do is contact the front office to gain access to the online grades. I have found that by communicating regularly through email with the teachers & asking how my children are doing, that the same level of communication is reciprocated."

    "I cannot speak this on all the teachers at Cedars International Academy, but there is a lack of communication from the teachers to the parents. Teachers are not informing parents prior to a child's grades declining. There is no indication of problems, until the progress report comes out and a shortage in time for the problem to be corrected. This school has the potential to be a great school, yet if the communication system is not improved, student academic rated will decline."

    "I disagree with this negative review as both a school staff member and a parent. As a member of the staff, I am proud to say that we have made major strides here at Cedars in both terms of academics and school culture. Academically, we are a recognized school where our students' learning is our number one priority. As a school, we have become a tight knit group and that learns from each other. I am proud to say that we only had to hire 2 new teachers this year (we have a total of 15 certified teachers on staff). As a parent, I am very selective in where I send my children. All of my other children attended private schools in elementary. Yet, I am proud that my child attends Cedars. His teacher is phenomenal! She is innovative, caring, highly structured and caters instruction to his needs. The administrative team is positive and the members are very invested in the community as instructional leaders and school families. Discipline and structure guidelines have been in place since before school started this year. This is one community that is moving forward in a positive and exciting manner!"
