This school has the worst cafeteria food!!! The food does not look appetizing. The office staff are rude to both the students and parents it's not a pleasant place to visit. My child tells me several teachers are rude too. We are hoping things will be better in middle and high school.

Cambridge is a school where you do not excel. The teachers teach the bear minimum. There are better schools out there. If you want your kid to be successful cambridge is not the place. Plus the office ladies are rude.
I would not recommend this school to anybody . My child has been with Cambridge for 3 years She's dyslexic excited & ready to learn in the classroom every day but is not furthering her education you have some great teachers who are unfortunately "not allowed " to go outside the box of the schools curriculum . The office is very rude & unhelpful catty they do not call you when a incident happens and your child is evolved no letter nothing just bruises on arms and your child telling you they fell down and sayed the whole day in the nurse office There special education is not helpful several meetings about how you can improve and help your child's learning later and they still feel the need to stick with the same program my child has straight D and F no attendance problem no attitude problem just a reading disorder that no one can help her with at Cambridge because they rather slap some head phones on you put you in the corner what happens to no child left behind we will be leaving this school most defiantly .
My child attended this school the first month of 2013 and by that first month ide had enough to pull them immediatly and move schools. The ladies in the office are rude and unhelpful at best the pta people are even ruder. The teacher my child had was horrible my child was bored and began regressing due to the lack of overall academic plan in the classroom. The school has a hard time relaying information we were sent home flyers about back to school night so i took time off work to be there due to it being at 5-7 at 4 I get a automated message that due to kindergarteners having had an orientation before the beginning of the year they will not be included or having one. We were informed at the orientation teachers don't have time for parents questions/concerns after school or before so we can feel free to email if nessecary. It was nothing but a nightmare and now that we have our child attending another school on vacaville they are doing above average wanting to go to school everyday and the teacher takes time to talk to any parents that need be at the end of the day or beginning. The school and teacher gives us constint updates about what's going on and we couldn't be happier.
My son attended the Spanish Immersion Program from Kinder to 1st grade. I wanted to love the program so bad - unfortunately when his teacher became ill and needed to be out for an extended time they could not find a Spanish-speaking sub (yeah in California??) they had mulitiple different subs. By the time they did find a long-term sub the class was miserably behind. They did 8-10 worksheets a day - I don't consider that an enriching environment many of the teachers dress like bums I overheard teachers speaking very rudely and sarcastically to students. My son's long-term sub suggested he be tested for ADHD. When I finally did get my son some testing we found he's gifted in Spatial Reasoning and just has some weakness in auditory processing - NO ADHD.
It's our local neighborhood school and the kids love it. We want to help in any way we can to bring more resources to Cambridge.
Cambridge Staff Parents and Kids care more about their school than any other we have been to (been to a few in the last few years) The parents work so hard to fill the gaps the staff and teachers cannot fill aand the kids do their part too. Turn out for events is always high and their is much spirit but unfortuneatly not much money and their are too many basic needs that cannot be met. We could really use this money.
This seems like a good school with a dedicated teaching staff. My daughter's teacher is quick to respond to my messages. However the principal often doesn't return calls which is extremely annoying. I am very disappointed and concerned with the school rating.
I can honestly say that on the whole this District is headed down hill fast. Some classes have up to 35 children in them! I've called the District with my concerns and was told the Sup. was to busy. Not only do they suffer from leaky roofs (that were supposedly just repaired) but there is no challenge offered for the few students who are on grade level. Discipline is non existant although I do feel the principal is trying. For those that don't demand academics this is a great school
Great teachers!!! My kids love it there.
My child is in Kindergarten a class of 28 children with 1 teacher. His assistant was reassigned to another classroom this year. This is complete insanity. My child got a better education in pre-school. I don't know what the principal/district is thinking. I am on this site because I am considering pulling my child out of this school.
The teachers are nice but the system as a whole is a bit dissappointing to me. My son took the GATE test last year and I was just notified in FEB 09 of his results. I was not very happy about it. When I asked the teachers about it they had no idea what the results were either. Organization people! is the only thing left Ihave to say.
As a single parent with a child that has special needs it is hard for me to imagine having any other school Nurse or teacher. Highest praise goes to all the staff and this school's cirriculum. I have had an exceptional experience this school season.
I loved the school. The teachers are great and the learning is wonderful.
Camerado is an ok school good teachers and a good IEP program.
