5/8/2012otherCherrydale is a basic primary school. It really doesn't do more than teach to lowly standardized testing and teach to the lower third of the class. No child is chllenged here. The school has a pathetic music program (kids sing to prerecorded songs with kids already singing on them!) and no art classes. PE may be the best thing going for this school. New principal this year but it is same old same old for Steilacoom School District. So sad for the kids.
5/24/2011parentGreat School and Great Kindergarten Teacher. The staff is also very helpful. We love the school.
7/25/2010parentCherrydale is a cute school but the teachers are terrible. Only 1 teacher in 3 years was decent. They have too many kids in a single class or teachers just don't pay enough attention to children needing help. One teacher at a conference told me that out of 100 kids, 99 of them were doing better than my child! She also said the children learning English as a second language were at higher levels than my child. First off not a good way to say you think my child is stupid! She had my child tested for special education classes and of course I was told my child was fine special education wasn't needed. I would tell her to ask the teacher for help when she did not understand something and the teacher would say to ask another student. Who gets paid to teach my child, the teacher or your kids?
1/24/2009parentMy oldest daughter, now in 6th grade, had a wonderful experience here, but since my youngest, currently in kindergarten, has been attending, I think the leadership has gone down hill. The kindergarten class sizes are too large and it's difficult to get answers for basic Q's from the principal. The PTA is awesome and very organized. They add a lot to the over all experience. The speech therapists are awesome. Don't care for the office staff, though.
10/10/2008parentI have a son, who attended Cherrydale last year. The campus did not meet my expectations. The staff were very rude to my son. In addition, the learning environment was quite uncomfortable for him. The students were very mean to him and his teacher did nothing about it. I do not recommend this school for your children.
12/1/2007parentCherrydale is a wonderful school.Both my kids attended Cherrydale and the staff and parent involvment is outstanding.I could only hope all the other schools my kids attend in the future could measure up to Cherrydale.
10/5/2005parentThey were introduced to my oldest boy when he was 5 and his speech was completely not understandable. Now he is in the 3rd grade and because of his teacher, therapist and staff at Cherry dale is schooling is much easier for him. He is no longer in any assisted classes and doing very well. They were a great assest in our life and have done so much for my family. We are deeply appreciative to them for everything. Thank you to everyone at Cherry dale for everything you have done for Kyle and Andy we will for ever keep you close to our hearts. Thank you The Castro Family
8/30/2004parentCherrydale is the finest private school fund with public money in Pierce County. The school is a primary school meaning there are only three grades K-2. The ethnic make of the students very much reflects the neighbor where the school is located. My grandson attend this school and I could not ask for better environment for the start of his education. The staff of this school is best I have see at making sure each student feels wanted. This staff also had several teachers who have taught their whole career in this school. Must great place if the staff does not want to leave.
3/30/2004parentCherrydale is a wonderful school with a wonderful staff. I love this school for my daughter I couldnt ask for anything more in a school.
8/25/2003parentCherrydale Elementary continues its quest to teach to the lower and middle levels of academic achievement. By neglecting the gifted children, they have lost substantial revenue as a result of those children transferring out of district. Consider this school if your child does not require academic challenges, extracurricular activities, and a life-long love of learning instilled and provided by the school.
