    "Great K-1 teachers, but after that, run the other direction as fast as you can. Major problem with bullying, and not only by other students but by teachers, aides and office staff as well. Appalled at the rudeness they have shown my kids and me. This after my volunteering full days at least once a week for 4 years and my kids doing well in their schoolwork and never themselves having had any disciplinary issues. Ended up driving 60 miles a day to take my kids to a decent school (Cobb Mt. Elementary)"

    "Lower grades are excellent teachers. Teamwork is not part of Coyote Valley's culture. Upper grade teachers are horrendous. They show up after and leave before their contract times, leave out entire core subjects like science and appropriate grade level language arts, and do not protect children from violence and bullying in the classroom. The report card grades are not based on a subject matter competency model as in a grade level bemchmark exam, but on homework completion and success with worksheet packets. Children are punished when they don't complete or make errors on their worksheet packets. They are sent at recess to sit at the "wall" as mountains of worksheets pile up. The administrators, school board, and the excellent teachers need to run these rotten eggs out of the teaching profession. One solution would be to give 2 year evaluations instead of the unheard of 5 year evaluation cycle for teachers. The school should allow parent choice for teachers."

    "This school is ok insofar as there are some great teachers who care a lot about the children. There are lots of happy motivational assemblies and educational assemblies as well as field trips. The GATE program needs to be more active. Just having a GATE program is not enough, you need to actuallly have activities for the kids on a regular basis. There is a librarian, but the school could use a computer class as well - it is a necessary thing in this modern world. Healthy food choices are improving in the cafeteria. New playground equipment is being sought and that will help a lot too. The campus itself could use some weeding and the restrooms always look terrible. Student council is a bad thing in elementary school, in my opinion. It is just a popularity contest which encourages bullying and an "us v. them" mentality. The kids are not old enough to handle it. These things being said, it is probably the best elementary school in the local area. They do "teach to the test," but what public school does not???"

    "This is just another school that does nothing but drill for state tests. This is a state-wide problem with government run schools teaching on failed models, and my child won't be returning next year because of this. Their "anti bully" "campaign" is a joke as well."

    "Given the lack of resources and what earlier reviewers implied regarding "dead wood", CVS was an ok school. The principal, however, is excellent, responsive, and a good listener. Principals have a difficult job, and Mr. Hoskins does a great job over things he has under control. The rest is district, state, family, and market conditions. Students, in general, appeared to be of above average quality with respect to academics, character and discipline. A family and child amenable to homeschooling will get a better education, but as a non-homeschool option, I'd send my child to CVS over the local charter school which has a very high (!) student-to-teacher ratio."
