CDA is a public school with extremely progressive teaching practices and exceptionally dedicated teachers. I have been pleased with almost every aspect of CDA after three years there, and it seems every year it improves. The teachers and principal continue their education daily through group meetings and seemingly constant professional development. The parent body is tightly knit and the events are always so much fun for the whole family! A+

Only considered the school, and after meeting with Principal Jenkins, I would never send my child there. That man has no interest in the well being and success of children, just in complaining about class sizes and the need to cut aid hours.

My daughter has had a wonderful set of teachers at CDA. Ms. Fielding was an amazing introduction to CDA and really got my daughter off to a very strong start in TK. She was very focused on helping each child progress (academically and socially) and was very helpful regarding what we could do to best supplement classroom development. Ms. Lira was very kind and created a warm classroom experience for K. Ms. Masi quickly instilled the idea that school is not only fun but importantly about learning for the first graders, and earned their respect in the process. I had been a little concerned that with teaching becoming more structured as my daughter got older, she would become less excited about school but this was not the case. She loves coming to school and she's always excited about the projects she's working on in class. I feel very grateful to have teachers, like Ms Masi, and a school environment that keeps my daughter so engaged that she's glad the weekend is only a couple days a week.

My child has been at this school (2nd grade) for one month, and it has hands down been her best month of school ever. She is engaged, enthusiastic and excited about school each day. She gets additional support when needed in class, is offered additional problems when she finishes early, and engages with her classmates through discussions of the books they read, math problems they solve, and bugs they discover in the garden. Having come from an elite LA private school to an LAUSD public school, I feel like such a fool for the wasted money. This school is better in every respect (academics, diversity, enrichment options, etc), and now every dollar I give to the school helps the entire community.

We had a horrible experience at this school. Academically this school is failing. None of the students are prepared for middle school. The principal is the problem. He caters to a few families that donate a ton of money and really disregards the rest.
