Juan Cabrillo Elementary School Reviews

5/5 Rating - Posted May 12, 2011
WE LOVE Juan Cabrillo! My Kindergartener and 1st grader can't wait to go to school every day. They love their teachers and all of the fun extra activities they are involved in. They just completed an entire school art project working with a world renowned artist and are currently taking an after school "architect lab" from a prominent Malibu architect - all at no cost. Field trips to the beach, cool musical concerts, interesting science projects, fun PE, exciting computer lab, great after school program, amazing special ed program - it's such a wonderful school! I love the friendly and casual atmosphere and the outstanding parent involvement! The teachers truly care about each student and the proof is happy kids that enjoy their school!

I transferred my daughter to Juan Cabrillo school from a local private school. I never knew that teachers and a principal like this existed. The kindness I was shown was incredible. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. My daughter's test score has shot through the roof! I love Juan Cabrillo Elementary.

Great school, atmosphere and fantastic teachers. Children are happy, challenged and engaged. In regards to the comment below, yes the diversity in this school is better than other Malibu schools. But I am confused by your comment, "Hispanic children of workers in Malibu." I am a Hispanic parent who lives in Malibu, middle class and works in another city entirely.

Both of my sons attended Juan Cabrillo and felt that the teachers were so supportive. Juan Cabrillo teaches students from all 'walks of life.' There are children of white middle class families, Hispanic children of workers in Malibu, handicapped children and some celebrity children who attend. This is quite a mix in a classroom and the teachers and administration handle it all so well. We are very proud of our school!

I have a daughter attending Juan Cabrillo and she has made many friends and so has my wife and I. The teachers are very easy to talk to. They have kept us aware of my childs academic and social improvements. I am very happy with the extracurricular activities that are offered. I also like the diverse population of the school as it teaches my daughter diversity. I had the opportunity to have my daughter attend Point Dume but chose to send her to Juan Cabrillo

This is a fabulous school. Although our ratings are lower than Webster or Point Dume, we have the highest diversity of students out of all three Malibu school. Our parent involvement makes our school unbelievable. You know everyone and everyone knows you and your child. It is a warm and inviting community. We have music, art, computer, among other activities.

The greatest thing about our school is the community. Malibu is like a small town with it's support for the schools. The schools are all on the same street so all of my kids stay close by and the schools support each other. And because we are in Malibu, alot of our funds are private. The PTA alone funds about $300,000 worth of programs including music, science and art! Our motto is that 'it takes a village to raise a child'. Comparing it to the other schools in our city, I prefer Juan Cabrillo because there is more diversity. We have a larger 'English Learner' & special needs population than the other schools in our area.

Three of my children attended this school. It is the best of what public school can be. It has excellent leadership and high quality teaching. You'd expect that in an affluent community. What Cabrillo has additionally, however, is a wide diversity in student body, including minority students and special ed. children. All of this is combined in a campus that feels like home. You get a real sense of family at Cabrillo. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
