    Both my children attend CES and we are very happy. They have wonderful art and music programs and the teachers really are the best.

    We moved to the area last year and my boys started CES in September. I have been extremely pleased with the level of education they are receiving. The teachers that I have met are superb. I have also been impressed with the music and art teachers. The building is brand new and has the newest technology. We're very happy with our decision to move to the area and send our boys to CES.

    My daughter has gone to this school for 4 years and I was very sad to have to leave. All the teachers were great and you could not ask for a more active and supportive principal. My daughter has developmental issues and there was awesome support in this school.

    I have two graduate degrees and was very picky when it came time for my daughter to attend kindergarten. Well I have one less worry - I am pleased to say that CES is most excellent school! It has great caring teachers and a highly responsible principal. Now if you want to walk into this school to visit your child you might get stuck in the secretary's office for a while. Instead of getting upset just call tem up in advance and tell them you are coming! Principal Mia puts your kid's safety first. My kid was very happy to go to CES every day last year and can't wait for her first day of 1st Grade to start.

    My son has gone to this school for two years and we've been very happy with the school. The teachers are extremely responsive and supportive. I have felt heard when things come up and I think they have a great academic program. We are very excited to see what the new building is like. It should be ready for the next school year!

    My son went to this school. It has wonderful teachers but the principal micro-manage everything. There is no transparency; the principal would escort anyone who wants to visit. There is poor support for special need students and I would not recommend sending student with special need here.

    i have a first grader and a kindergartner in this school. It is a wonderful school. The teachers are caring. The art and music program is great. We walk to and from school every day. I love the neighborhood and the school. We are soon moving to L.A. and I don't know if we could find such and wonderful school as this again.

    Cheltenham Elementary provides a nurturing environment for children to learn. They balance school curriculum with educational learning opportunities. The school has an active Parent/Teacher Organization that provides additional resources to support the learning environment. The teachers care about the students and include parents in the learning process. Cheltenham is a great place for a child to start their educational career.

    Cheltenham Elementary is a wonderful school. My 2nd grader wakes up every morning eager to go to school. The teachers respect the children and the parents. I used to talk with my son's 1st grade teacher on the regular basis on her cell phone. She wasn't just his teacher she was his second mother. This year my son has his first male teacher. This year he has become very enthusiastic about science a subject he never mentioned before. Overall this school is very nurturing and provides lots of enrichment for the students. They offer more challenging homework that is not excessive for students that are working above grade level.

    Extremely please with this school! My first-grader just absolutely loves going to school every day. I actually moved out of state only to find that the new elementary school that my child attended was horrible. Needless to say I packed up and moved back! At Cheltenham Elem they care about the children. They make learning fun and keep the kids engaged. I love the diversity they encourage lots of reading and the math is appropriate. To put it simply the curriculum makes sense! The amount of homework is not overwhelming that there's enough time to review spelling words or read library books--this is very important to working parents. When I put my daughter on the school bus every morning I feel comfortable and confident that she is in a wonderful learning environment and that she is in the hands of educators who really care.
