    "One can easily distinguish a good school from bad because all the good schools have these things in common: the teachers treat their students with certain level of respect so that students can learn self- respect and dignity; and the teachers and the principle are genuinely interested in what the parents have to say and they will actively address parent concerns. This is far from being the case with Ms. Tyson the current principal and most of the teachers at this school. There are a few dedicated teachers (especially the younger teachers and the male teachers) and there has been some efforts to bring in new programs and to diversify student curriculum. But there is still a lot of room for improvement."

    "The Best school. Teachers give an warm and homely environment to the kids. My son was in ELD Program , I was very worried how he would learn the language. But the way Ms. Ligocki helped him patiently is awesome. Although he is been moved to his neighborhood school, he still misses De vargas. I also have to give a lot of credit to Ms.chow and Ms. Johnson for their efforts to help my daughter too. Thanks to De vargas and all of them Associated with the school :)"

    "De Vargas rocks. My son is in fifth grade here. It can t get any better than this with Mr. Shane Tatman teaching them. He is the best. During CUSD middle school open houses, when I say those teachers that my son is at De Vargas at Mr. Tatman s class, they give rave reviews about him. This shows the respect he commands. Mr Tatman makes teaching simple yet effective and his style is unique. His depth of knowledge is amazing. He gets the kids to present on an interesting topic once monthly, gets them to do an auto-biography and positively critiques every bit of output. He is a great motivator and gives kids performance based weekly I Can Manage Myself ICMM certificate. Beyond teaching, Mr. Tatman genuinely cares. He talks to them about ill effects of smoking, promotes discipline, offers school-life balance, takes great personal pain to conduct a 3 day offsite science camp, executes No TV week, conducts walkathon and the list is endless. He is a bundle of energy and always smiling. The positive influence of Mr.Tatman will remain with my son through his career. The best words in dictionary aren t enough to say how great a teacher he is. Thanks. Mani & Geetha."
