My son attends Corte Sierra and we couldn t be any happier being apart of this school. The staff is welcoming and his teacher communicates with me how he is doing in class. I volunteer in my son s classroom and get to see first hand the dedication, love, and time that his teacher puts in. The school ...  Read more

The school refused to listen to the district psychologist AND the Melmed Center (the leading experts in Autism in the state of Arizona), in regard to my son's disabilities. You see, some people, like Mr. Barnes and his relatives, put money before the best interests of children. This school will teach ...  Read more

We sent two children to Corte Sierra for a total of 10 years. One of our kids had physical disabilities, the other one had learning difficulties. Both of our children received an excellent education, and were treated wonderfully. Mr. Barnes and his staff were always willing to meet and discuss our kids' ...  Read more

Not happy. My child went to a charter school K-3rd grade. She received a great education there but the director was abusive to the students and staff so I put her in Corte. She really likes it but unfortunately 4th grade was a waste because she didn't learn anything. There were at least five extremely ...  Read more

As the parent of a special needs child, I am completely qualified to speak about the treatment of my special needs child by Mr. Barnes and others at Corte Sierra. Corte Sierra is NOT capable of providing an adequate education for special needs children. My son must repeat both kindergarten and first ...  Read more

My daughter attended here - 2nd - 5th grade. We really liked the school and most teachers. I don't agree with the reviews about Mr. Barnes. Some parents think they know everything...they don't. I do wish the school took actual field trip and did something special for 5th graders. PTSA raises a lot ...  Read more

Corte Sierra is an A++ school and is fantastic. You won't be disappointed in the quality of teachers and administrators.

Corte is AWESOME! My oldest went there from K-5 and I have 3 other children that currently attend. Mr. Barnes is AMAZING with the staff and with parents. Corte is so amazing that we have over 100 children attending on variances! That speaks volumes to me. There is NO BETTER school in the West Valley!
