My perception of Culverdale is completely different than the prior parent has expressed. My child has been at Culverdale for many years. The teachers are kind, caring and have high expectations for their students. Mr. Jetzer knows every child at his school and is never too busy to hear parents concerns. ...  Read more

Volunteers are treated poorly by the school or by the PTA members and not recognized unless you are volunteer that is involved with the PTA. It takes everyone working together to make a school run a proper way. I was told many times by a PTA members if I don't like how the school runs that I should ...  Read more

He rallies the troops and even though our son's teacher wasn't particularly strong, Mr. Jetzer held monthly awards ceremonies for the children. My child, a mediocre student, won a reading award and being recognized by Mr. Jetzer was a total ...  Read more

This isn't necessarily the fault of the school but public education ...  Read more

Culverdale is not as good as other elementary schools in Irvine. The principal tries to make it better but he lacks a good leadership. Sixth grader teacher, Melonie, was a kindergarten teacher and all of a sudden has become a sixth grader without any experience. I took my son out of this school because ...  Read more

Secondly, they love the way the teacher makes them learning - it`s interesting, easy and fun. Thirdly, children are always encouraged in different ways to do ...  Read more

I took a school tour here today because we might be moving into this area. I was very impressed by the atmosphere in the classrooms (quiet but "buzzy" and the kids were clearly enjoying themselves) and the huge respect and affection the kids clearly have for the Principal. It is a challenging environment ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
