Quality teachers and staff
"Teachers. All the teachers we have met have been wonderful to our children. They are attentive and most are very flexible and understanding when issues arise. I believe Cheney SD has some of the best teachers in the area."
"Communication between the teachers and parents. I have always had an easy time communicating with the teachers through email or phone about concerns I have or issues that might be going on. This helps me to have a better idea of how my child is doing in school and letting the teacher know what is being done at home."
"Openness. This community has blown me away with how welcome and friendly they are. Just in the schools, everyone has been so warm and wonderful. It makes me proud to be a part of this community, and I know that the students are being sent to adults who are passionate and truly care for the students."
Parent and community involvement
"Community support. Cheney and the surrounding community does a fantastic job of supporting the schools and various school-related activities; I also love the collaboration that happens with Eastern Washington University."
Student health and wellness
"Striving for healthy kids! I appreciate all that the Cheney School District does to promote healthy lifestyles at school. Our lunches are amazing! Giving kids only healthy options is a very progressive step. I also love that recess and active play is inserted into our daily schedules - so important for learning!"
