    "Living in RSM, several parents had told me that I should enroll my daughter in another elementary school, due to this schools low performance in test scores & Title 1 status. After 8 months in Cielo Vista's Kindergarten class, I have only seen positive influence from the Principle, teachers & staff. They have an amazing computer lab, a dedicated librarian and they even supply Smartboards in the classrooms! My daughter enjoys the school tremendously! It is true, there is a lower socio-economic balance (Which was the main worry of most parents here), but the point of the school is for the students to receive a great education & I believe diversity should always be encouraged. Currently, some students do not have parents or relatives available to help them keep up with their school work & some do not speak English. These Kindergarten children come in learning their letters & numbers for the 1st time, but the teachers perform an excellent job of managing the class. The children who are proficient in reading, writing & mathematics are encouraged to do more & are not held back. It is Parental/Guardian participation in their child's continued education that is the issue, not the schools."

    "My daughter transitioned from Tutortime Kinder to Cielo Vista last year, and is about to go into 2nd grade in a few months. My 5 yr old will also be starting Kinder here. I cant say that I have any complaints about this school. My daughter is a total drama queen, and has her moments of needing to be disciplined, but the staff is great with this. I've been kept up to date on everything going on, and always get progress reports when requested. My daughter isn't an angel, FAR FROM IT! But I can honestly say she is getting a great education from this school. I look forward to having my son here in the next few months. I would highly recommend this school! As far as the office staff...everyone has their days! But I have yet to see the principal act rude, or give me any type of attitude. I can't say so much about the office staff, because they do make unnecessary comments. If there was a rating for the office staff it would be a negative star. I have caught a few of the ladies making rude comments in Spanish thinking that nobody understands them. With that said, I like this school, the teachers, and the principal!"

    "Cielo Vista is an amazing school! The principal, teacher and office staff are very supportive and accommodating to all students, parents and visitors. it is interesting that the only 1 star I read isn't a parent that attends the school. If she were a parent who has a child at the school, she would know how much positive energy is in the school. My children have been attending CV for the past 3 years and the education is phenomenal. CV has a full time computer lab with 2 outstanding full time teachers who don't just sit there, but instruct K - 6 on computer skills. There are many different programs that struggling to GATE students obtain. My children are getting a better education at CV than a private school. I have not seen one rude or "bad" teacher or office staff especially the office manager at CV. Yes, the class sizes are not like they use to be with budget cuts, however, the teachers have not let this affect the quality of the education that my children receive. Thank you Dr. Peterson for your quality leadership and to all the teachers and staff at Cielo Vista!!!"

    "We are new to this school and school district, coming from Capo. After reading the reviews on how great this school was, we decided to move to this area. I have to say, after the back to school night, being herded into the auditorium for the 6th grade back to school, we didn't even get a chance to meet the teacher one on one to introduce ourselves. Then went on to meet our daughters 4th grade teacher, she went on to say how long she had been teaching and about her credentials and how well she prepared her students from 3rd grade to now 4th grade then went on to say how unprepared many students where that where coming from other schools. I found that to be extremely arrogant on her part. My daughter was an accelrated reader in her 3rd grade class and above average in her studies, both our children are. Her class room lacked any kind of character to encourage students to want to learn, the class room sizes are out of control, over 30 students per class? I'm not impressed with the teachers and the lack of "one on one" between teachers and students. It seems as though the students are just lost in the shuffle."
