I cannot say enough positive things about Citrus Glen. It is truly a hidden treasure of a school here in Ventura. There is a great sense of community at this school, and it is very evident in the relationships that the teachers form with their students. The principal (new as of the 2014-2015 school year) is active and can always be found walking the campus and is very personable to students and parents alike. We have experienced teachers in the TK, K and 3rd grade level so far and each one has been fabulous! It is obvious the the teachers and staff take great pride in the work they do at Citrus Glen. The PTA is very involved, and goes does a wonderful job of providing extra programs and events for the students. I could go on and on, but just know that this school is simply awesome!
Mrs. Sherman has been wonderful. She is very patient and has taken her time to touch base with the parents about their children often. She is very approachable and really works with parents to help the kids do well. She expects the kids to behave and takes action to help them make the right choices. My son has loved being in her class and wakes up everyday excited to go to school and learn something new. From what I have seen with the school so far, there is a lot going on with fun activities and field trips for the kids to look forward to. Some thing I wish all schools would do, would be to have a suggested donation at the beginning of the year that covers ALL costs for field trips, class donations, picture day, PTA, etc. It's very difficult to keep track of all the fundraisers and money needed for each child on a weekly basis, with four kids in school this year its been difficult and wearying to hear about yet another fundraiser or check needed.
School is everything a parent can ask for, excellent teachers, staff. Great ratings, and only getting better with time. Completely satisfied. Only eye soar is the principal, Patricia Kingsley is very careless and snotty. If you don't have to deal with her, everything is great!
The best school I've ever had my daughters go to! The principal gave us a campus tour the first day. Teacher met with us after school for an update on student behavior without an appointment. Wonderful staff, teachers & parents!
