Testimonials

It is a road less traveled and it is wonderful – thank you!!

We are thrilled that our daughter is a part of CRHS and we wish that all students could have access to this amazing effective school model. We are so grateful for those educators who in this crazy and damaging “race to the top” have held tight to their convictions of what is best for a child and have had the courage to stay on the slow and steady road – it is a road less traveled and it is wonderful – thank you!!

The means for ALL children to reach their full potential

San Lorenzo Valley Charter schools provide invaluable educational opportunities to students, families and the community. As a 4th generation Santa Cruz County resident, pioneer homeschool mom of the 1980’s, 15-year veteran teacher of the traditional classroom, host teacher to 30+ UCSC Cal Teach students considering a teaching career and current new teacher induction mentor, I want to strongly endorse the work of the programs in the SLV Charter School.

Coast Redwood High School: An incredibly amazing program

In 7th grade, our daughter developed the idea that her future success depended entirely on acceptance into an elite university and that the only way to get there would be if she worked really hard and got excellent grades. For two years we watched her spend every spare moment stooped over her desk working on homework – trying to achieve an A or higher.

CRHS: It was the best thing we could have done!

My daughter, now 17, has always been a confident student - happy, healthy, social, with no learning disabilities at all.  As she reached middle school, she began to develop anxiety regarding the school regime - early mornings, homework, and relations with multiple teachers.

Physical and emotional safety is a Charter priority

Dear Rhonda, I would like to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond to take steps to secure the safety of the students in all programs under the charter umbrella. As a member of the Parent Advisory Committee, I have had the opportunity to see and work on the updated safety plan that covers all number of emergency situations if they were to arise at one of the schools. A part of this safety plan that may not be immediately evident is the time and effort you and your staff have put into, not just securing the physical safety of our children, but into securing the emotional safety of our children.
