You can't get any better than College Street ! The principal, teachers, secretaries, and all the other staff are the greatest. Our AR program is wonderful! Mrs Quisenberry is just wonderful. Keep up the good work. I think our score should be 10.

College Street is not given enough credit for being an outstanding school. The teachers go beyond the call of duty to help the students.

We can't say enough about the wonderful education and support our son recieved during his time at College Street! He attended CSE for kindergarten and 1st grade (2005-2007). At first, we were apprehensive about the level of education he would receive since Alabama routinely ranks low among all 50 states. However, Enterprise Schools are the exception! The classes were small (approx. 14 students in both classes), giving teachers more one-on-one time with the students. The AR program is wonderful and they truly promote reading and reaching set goals. My son could not read on his first day of kindergarten. By the end of 1st grade, he was testing on a 4th grade level! I believe CSE's philosophy of allowing children to work on their own level, even above grade level, was a major factor. Besides having issues with the new principal's attitude, we give CSE an A+!

This is our son's second year at College street and we are very pleased. This school has incredible teachers and a great AR reading program. Our son is in second grade and now reads on a 5th grade level. I would not want him to go anywhere else. Outstanding school system.

The best kept secret in the Enterprise School System. The teachers are wonderful, the activities involve parents, teachers, and students. Your child is surrounded by a loving, home environment. Every child matters and the staff goes out of their way to accomodate your child. They perform programs to encourage learning and have the chidren excited about going to school. My children never want to miss.
