    "I agree with many posts about this schools decline. It decline is becoming more and more rapid. I already had one child graduate this school and when my eldest child was there Mrs. Gliesberg ran an outstanding school and my child succeeded excellently. I have another child going to this school under the new principal and everything mentioned by others is true. All incentives and awards are almost non existant but they're always asking for more money, supplies etc... A few wonderful teachers and staff have left the school over the years. Test scores are down and declining. Emails to the principal go unreplied. Also agree with parents not being curtious or following rules in regards to pick up and drop off it has been dangerous at times. This school is a shell of what it once was."

    "This a great school, just some parents need to learn how to drive and park and be courteous to parent crossing guards. Now if you wonder where the money goes, attend a PTA meeting!!!! And if you don't like our school because it old then go to another one that is brand new, but good luck because all of those schools have a rating of 2!"

    "This is an outstanding community centered school. All the adults on campus including the principal, teachers and parent volunteers are centered on what's important - the well-being of our children. My children are thriving at this great school, thank you."

    "Not a family friendly school any more. The principal has been there 3 years and is gone often, which is good. She has managed to single handedly alienate many families. Test scores have plummeted. No longer are there motivational incentives for the children. The principal's attitude is "My way or the highway." It seems as if she's trying to erase any trace of the previous principal's successes in running the school, hence the school is declining in quality staff, morale, and team work attitude it used to have. I know many parents have complained to the district, but they don't seem to listen. This school used to be as good as Ivey Ranch, no longer the case. Cannot wait to have my children out of there. Many teachers that have been there before this principal are wonderful, but they are leaving."

    "FOLLOW UP to JUNE 6, 2011 review "just completed kindergarten..." Looking back, we were probably just very happy with the kindergarten program - they are, and continue to be, a well oiled machine! Since then, however; we have become increasingly dissatisfied. When we arrived in 2010, CM was an 8, today a 7. Our opinion regarding the principle has completely flipped: "not awesome" is more appropriate - entirely agreeing with the "my way or the highway" and similar comments made by others. Could this attitude be affecting moral among the staff and subsequently test scores among the students? Time will tell. As various PTA parents have "5 STARS & AWESOME!!!" posted, there is much to celebrate here aside from the principle and declining test scores. The PTA has done well to keep parents involved and informed and there is strong parental support . The teachers are good; and most do very well with what they've got to work with. That said, we didn't come here for "fine" "ok" or even "good". We came here for "great", which appears to be slipping away. Therefore, it is our opinion a change is needed soon or we're headed for a 6... which for us, is unacceptable."
