    Wonderful. This is our 4th year at Capri. It is a hidden gem in Campbell. Capri teaches the kids to be respectful responsible and safe. My kids love going to school every day. The new Principal Mrs. Ready is always at the playground during recess.

    Our older son attended Capri from 1st grade. He is now in 5th grade and it went pretty smoothly. He had a few bad days but for the vast majority of the time he was looking forward to being at school every single morning.

    The teachers and staff at Capri are great. I am constantly amazed at what a wonderful job they are doing with the education of my two children. While academics are a priority at the school socialization is also stressed. The kids learn how to be active and positive members of the Capri community. There is a nice base of parent volunteers that help out (although there could always be more). There are wonderful programs like ABC Readers and Los Dichos which involve parents reading in the classroom and facilitating discussions about positive behavior traits. After school programs are available (on a pay-basis) to supplement what is taught in school. Art class Academic Chess basketball Mad Science are just a few of the classes I have seen offered. The school has both a greenhouse and a garden that is utilized by the students with the help of parent volunteers. The leadership at the school is strong. Once a month the principal hosts a "Coffee with the Principal" where you can hear about the latest things happening at the school ask questions or make comments. I am thankful to be part of the Capri community!

    I foresee the teachers staff & the Principal @ Capri staying on track & implementing positive changes & planning in the year ahead to create a more positive & caring environment @ this school. The Principal is always doing his best to listen to the needs of the parents as well as the students. He is open to new ideas & implementing new programs to see the school & the student body succeed & thrive. My son is currently in second grade & will have my daughter @ Capri in the Fall through choice (as this is not our neighborhood school). I am thrilled with the PTA's success this past year & see another terrific year ahead. The Principal also endorses Project Cornerstone with ABC Readers to teach asset building amongst the students @ the school. Parents can get involved @ recess/ lunch to engage the kids. Capri has a garden that kids can help w/ as well as a new greenhouse. There is more to offer than most realize (too many to list) along with the best teachers a kid could have!. I see Capri as an excellent learning environment with issues that have been acknowledged plans put in place & moving forward to an even better and more positive environment for students next year.

    We pulled our child out after an ongoing bullying experience that the principal was unwilling or unable to handle. It was the worst feeling sending my child every day to a place I no longer believed to be safe. The teacher's range from wonderful to poor (notes sent home to parents contained grammatical errors which would be funny if the author weren't my child's teacher). Recess ratio of 500+ kids to 5 or 6 adults (sometimes only 2 or 3 were physically present out on the playground) resulted in many incidents of bullying going undetected by the adults and staff. If you ask the administration they will claim bullying does not happen at this school. The school ought to conduct a bullying survey of the kids and parents. I doubt this will happen though because the principal prefers to keep his head in the sand.

    Capri has a great principal and PTA along with the highest % of ESL and cultural diversity (>35 different nationalities) in the district. Even with that hurdle their API scores soared 41 points and they're hoping to break 900 this year. If you compare Village Marshall Lane and Forest Hill sure they have higher test scores but they have a much more homogeneous environment. Capri is also very active in green-related activities (garden recycling greenhouse) along with being the first school in the district to implement JiJi the latest software tool in spatial learning.

    Our experiences at Capri has been nothing but positive..Excellent Teachers like Mr.Jacovini Mrs.Kanazawa Mrs.Pulliam Mrs Brackett have given our children a positive learning experience..Mr.Wilce has done a great job as principal and has always repsonded when issues have come up..We had originally been told/heard Capri was not one of the better elementary schools in Campbell but thanks to wonderful teachers involved parents and great staff they have proven otherwise...

    Mrs. Wolthausen was the BEST Kindergarten teacher I have ever had for my kids! Thanks to her my son is actually looking forward to continue school and excited about new school year in 1st grade! Mr. Elizabeth Lewis is absolutely AMAZING. She is one of the rare teacher with a full devotion to her students and very unique style. Definitely a teacher who deserves an excellence award!

    The Kinder Pod rocks! Mrs. Wolthausen was so patient and generous with her time with each student and really made the effort to get to know each child and their parent. I would say the Kindergarten program is excellent and looking forward to 1st grade and what it has to offer!!

    This school was amazing for my child. The teachers met his needs not too much homework was given and there was barely any bullying. The kids learn necessary life lessons at this school and it prepares them very well for middle school.
