Berryessa Union Elementary School District Reviews

Cherrywood has gone from being a good school to a great school over the past three years. The recent addition of the Kinder / 1st grade mandarin immersion program, after school ROCK program, resurrection of the chess club and drastic improvement in test scores (now scored as an 8 out of 10 on greatschools) are just a few of the many improvements to the school. And the remodel of the classrooms this past summer has transformed the interior. To the administration and involved parents, keep up the great work.

My daughter enjoys the school she is attending, it is her second and last year at this school. Berryessa was able to accept her at last minute and it is greatly appreciated. Sometimes the schools run out of supplies in children's restrooms, not sure if school runs out but that has been a complaint. Teaching and monitoring kids sanitation should be a priority during seasons when germs are going around or when known issue is discovered when it comes to illness. Other than that no bigger complaints.
Schoolwork wasn't rigorous, I had too much free time. I hope they kept the music program and drama program because I had positive experiences with both of those.
