My daughter has attended this school since kindergarten. She will be in 6th grade next year. The teachers and staff are wonderful. She scores at and above standard on her SBAC's. I feel she gets a good education at this school. She has friends at other schools in the district that get way more homework, yet she seems to know as much or more as they do. Each student in upper grade is issued a laptop. Other higher rated elementary schools have their students share computers. I feel Cambridge is an excellent school. I don't put much credibility towards these ratings. I think they're based more on the population of the students being second language learners or not, and not due to the quality of education the students are receiving. I recommend this school.

My daughter is in second grade In this school! From La Veta, this school has great teachers and its incomparable to what we had experience in La Veta. Education starts at home and continues in school! And it's in this school where you can find a true loving and supportive teachers. They take each kid as a unique individual and supports them all the way through! They have great IEP program and Ms Tran is awesome! Yes it needs more parent involvement but the educational activities they do organize for the kids are just so many and fun! The Pricipal, Mr. Mortensen is so approachable! Greay scool staff always there to help! Fliers come both Spanish and English which does not bother me at all! Love to see some of the non-English speaking parents who tries their best to attend and be there for their kids!

After sending my kids to Private school then to Villa Park (because its so great), we are excited to give Cambridge a try. We have spoken to community members, teachers from other schools as well a parents and we think Cambridge will be a great choice. We believe it all comes down to parent involvement. As for now, the staff seems great.

I find it so interesting that one school could have such high and then such low ratings. My experience at the school has been wonderful. Of course the school isn't perfect, but every concern I have brought up with teachers and/or administrators have been taken seriously and addressed in a timely manner. I have never felt like the school caters to non-english speakers. All important papers are sent home in both spanish and english but doing what it takes to help all parents get involved in their child's education does not bother me one bit. And for what it's worth, I've NEVER seen anything come home just in spanish. Where this school is lacking is in parent involvement. But you can't blame the school for that. I think the families who are the happiest at Cambridge are those who roll up their sleeves and decide to get involved, making the school a better place for all the kids and helping solve problems with the public education system instead of waiting for someone else to do it.

Not pleased at all. It seems that they cater more to children who can't speak English and do not offer any REAL help to the ones who ask for it. My children attended this school and there is a handful of good teachers but majority need to retire or find a more suitable career. There is no room for creativity or exploration here. If your child has passion or a creative mind beware.....Dream killers. It is unfortunate that the teachers who do make a difference are not recognized. I feel there is a lot of lazy staff here that are just there for a paycheck. This is not a school I would recommend. It is truly not a place for a young mind.
