    "Cherokee Point Elementary has exemplary leadership with Principal Godwin Higa, caring and compassionate teachers and staff, devoted parent leaders with their PTA and TICS: Trauma Informed Community Schools, and exemplary youth leaders. Cherokee Point embodies and represents a trauma informed school which wraps around the "whole child" and fully supports the Vision 2020 of the SDUSD, 12 Indicators of Success of a Quality School, and LCFF: Local Control Funding Formula. The warm, welcoming,safe school environment from their Principal, staff, educators and parents vested in a quality education for the children is the epitome of 21st Century education. Their passionate devotion and dedicated resolve to support the children with individualized learning within pluralization embodies the well-being holistically of every child's success to support their educational and whole child journey on becoming a thriving, inspired, engaged child destined to great success. Dana Brown Project Director, TICS: Trauma Informed Community Schools on behalf of our team"

    "This school may have gotten good reviews in the past, but the test scores have gone down for the last three years in a row. The principal does not care about grades anymore. He only cares about creating a safe supportive environment because of the trauma these kids experience at home and in the community. He uses this to excuse all or their inappropriate behaviors. There is no discipline."

    "Cherokee Point Elementary is a good school because the teachers help you learn new things like reading, writing, math and how to do tests. Zianya, 2nd grade. I love my kindergarten classroom with all my friends, my teacher Ms. Duran and student teacher Ms. Rachel. I like learning to read in English and Spanish. Kinan, Kindergarten. My kids enjoy going to school every day, they always are very excited about the activities that take place at Cherokee Point. In the morning the doors open at 7:15am to have the kids walk/jog at the track where they receive tickets. After accumulating about 10 miles worth of tickets they start to receive incentives and this has helped my kids with looking forward to not just going to school but to arriving early. My kids stay in shape and it helps them built-up an appetite for their breakfast inside the classroom at 7:45am. On the 3rd Wednesday of each month they offer coffee and bread for parents at the Principal's Chat and Dinner for the family at the monthly Wellness & Restorative Practice Partnership meetings for parents. Cherokee Point is a mini parent college with free computer classes, zumba, safety, and parenting education."

    "I have three children attending Cherokee Point. They have all been here since the preschool program and we have enjoyed it immensely. My oldest is in 4th grade now and I have been extremely impressed with all he has learned and how the teachers have tried to teach about good and bad choices through out his education. Having him own up and take responsibility for his actions has helped him not only in making wonderful choices in friends and educational goals at school but also at home. Love, Love this school and teachers."
