Christa McAuliffe Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

April 04, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Our family appreciates the ethnic diversity McAuliffe offers compared to the other CUSD schools. It has a distinct philosophy that values independence, character, and creativity. A lot of other schools say that they value those things too, but McAuliffe actually walks the walk. The parent aiding requirement is substantial. I can see the value in the parent aiding, but I wish the time requirement was half as long. It is challenging for two working parents. What you end up with in the community are families with one stay at home parent, or dual-income families who make sacrifices to prioritize this aiding requirement.

My child has been at McAuliffe since kinder, and he is in 4th grade now.What's amazing about McAuliffe is, not only my child learns and grows, I do too, as a parent and as a person. It is EXACTLY because it is a parent-participation school. It is required to aide in the classroom every week for certain number of hours and take on a "job" for the class. Optionally one can volunteer for school-wide initiatives. I was apprehensive at first - "I can barely handle my own child, how can I handle a room full of other people's kids?!" Well, first of all, there are the teacher and an Instructional Aide, AND other veteran parents there to model for you the appropriate way to be with kids. Every new parent is also required to take a 6-week training program to familiarize him/herself with the McAuliffe philosophy and the "language" to use.I learned different scenarios and how to deal with them with compassion and with confidence. Those skills help me to be effective and productive in the classroom. By following exactly the same principles at home, I also have become a more effective and better parent.And a better person. At McAuliffe, I learned by experience a most valuable life lesson: "The more one gives, the more one gets back."

My child was transferred to McAuliffe from a traditional elementary school, and the 1st day he attended McAuliffe, he didn't want to go back to his previous school. He was so much happier going to school all through 8th grade. He was a bit shy before but McAuliffe education transformed him into a confident and very independent student. I really appreciate all the teachers & Instructional aides(IA) who paid attention to my child's different needs and helped him to be self disciplined on how to manage time and his daily life. My other kids had the same privileges because of the sibling priority, and they all are benefited through all field trips related with their curriculum and the hands on education. I love chaperoning with all the daily field trips and overnight field trips. You bond with the kids through these trips and this helps you aid in the classrooms, and of course it's a life long learning for me, too.About the donation, I used to donate to my 1st child's traditional elementary school with half of the amount compare to McAuliffe, but I didn't really see how the money was used to benefit my child. At McAuliffe, most of the parent donation is used to hire IA, and these instructional IA are so critical how the teaching in the classroom is not just lecturing and students just doing the practice sheet after another practice sheet, rather kids can be formed into few groups and they collaboratively work together with the supervision of 2 teachers and few parents aides. These in-depth class time make McAuliffe somewhat homework free school. And this is why I would rather donate little bit more for my children to have enriched class time.My 2 children graduated from McAuliffe but they still love to visit McAuliffe when they can.

As a parent in a hyper-academic Bay Area, I appreciate the fact that this school does not overvalue a grade or a test score over learning how to learn, or working independently, or adopting life skills like working out issues or speaking to adults. You could argue that these things can be taught in the home, but I hear that many parents in the Cupertino area seek to influence schools to push harder academics, more homework, and thus it bleeds into the home by requiring more homework and later hours for all kids, whether a family wants to be academic or not. I'm a big fan of McAuliffe and it does take some time to get used to, but they develop children who think for themselves and ask questions to learn more, rather than do homework and achieve on tests to get a letter grade.

Negatively. I believe a teacher and teacher-aide overstep their authority/duty conveyed inaccurate information that did caused a lot of damage to our young family.
