As the retired principal of CCCS I find this parents commends appalling on many levels. Spoiled grapes is my reaction; didn't get her way and now is making up FALSE claims. First and foremost the parents know all the requirements BEFORE they enroll their child. Second, my very good guess is the parents who complain are the parents who DID NOT DO THEIR PART and are actually surprised at the results.... Kids don't pass, kids lose activities, kids can't graduated------ALL SPELLED OUT, multiple methods to communicate with the parent and ask for them to support their child that go unanswered until........the end of the year. I retired because of these parents! The last one berated, cussed, and yelled at me...... I caution parents because one day you are going to wake up and NO ONE is going to be there to educate your children and that to me is a tragedy.

This school is phenomenal. The students experience lots of hands-on project based and oriented learning aligned with the state standards. While learning about Egypt, students actually mimic the mummification process of the ancient Egyptians with the use of common household items and a chicken. The 6th grade students have been on a total of 12 educational field trips this past school year, and some students will be taking a voluntary educational trip to Costa Rica with teachers this coming school year. The dance, choir, theatre, and art electives provide enriching skills and allow students to really "show" us who they are. There are a plethora of after school clubs/enrichments/activities such as rock climbing, recycling club, cooking classes, young novelists, robotics, and more which peek the interests of students and assist in the development of a well rounded and universal student. Our staff members are all concerned about the well being of each and every student. We are a home away from home for many students who attend CCCS.

Doing stuff that seems illegal. Not giving students report cards or progress reports because they charge for everything. One dollar to print a page, they charge for students literature books, for fundraisers they charge you if they are not sold and if you don't they won't give you the students report cards. Giving students detention and making the students scrub the toilets. VERY UNPROFFESIONAL. They also said that they don't do background checks on their employs and had the nerve to say if I wanted a background check done on their employs I would have to pay for it. They don't provide lunch for their students.. THIS IS HORRIBLE SCHOOL. Why would you make your children suffer in an environment like this. I would never recommend this school to anyone. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL111

I have 2 children that attend CCCS and 1 that graduated 3 years ago. I think the staff and teachers have been amazing. Are there problems? I believe so. Is there room for improvement? I believe so. I'm aware they have fund raisers (they have wonderful field trips) Am I aware they charge $1.00 per page for a copy(its to teach kids to do work at home instead of trying to do it last minute) Do I agree with the dogs on campus... No I don't. BUT it was a CHOICE to send my daughters there. I have had a few mishaps with teachers but the good has very much outweighed the bad!! CCCS is a great school a spark of hope in this community

I read the review where a parent...obviously upset, and I am sure to her with good reason, but I feel the exact opposite. I do agree that the teachers are wonderful, and they do go the extra mile for their students. The teachers cannot do what they do in the classroom without an administrative team supporting them. I have received so much help from the principal, the dean, the counselor, and the clerks. They have listened to me when I needed them to. My child is better because of the love, care, and concern from everyone at CCCS. My child loves the fact that the dogs are there, and that the kids can sing and dance, and go on amazing fieldtrips.

Unfortunately I have two children attending school here and it has been a nightmare dealing with the administrative personnel there. First I like to say they have wonderful teachers that go the extra mile for their students. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the office personel. The Dean and another administrative personel take their personal dogs to school on a daily basis. They also had my children go to detention at 7 am (which I am totally ok with them facing consequences for their actions) But I definitely did not know that by sending them to detention they would be put scrub and clean the girls toilets and the boys urinals. Both my children and other parents and children have said the same thing. When I brought up the issue they neglected to correct the problem and instead they emailed me a letter banning me from the school or any school events!!!!!!?????? How can someone be in charge of a school who allows these things to happen. Not only that when I told her one of the dogs snapped at my daughter she didn't respond and remained quiet. I am not the first to face difficult problems with this school but I will be the FIRST TO FIGHT FOR MY CHILDRENS WELL B EING.

I am 11 years old. I am currently in the 6th grade and attend CCCS. I like to read books and play sports. My interests are also board games and studying. I also love attending CCCS. I love many things about CCCS. First of all, they provide us students with a lot of knowledge. Which means that the teachers are great. We also have a great staff and principal, that's another thing I love. We also have a very safe environment here at CCCS. I don't even think there s anything I don't love about CCCS. CCCS has done very much for my education. It has made me the number one student on the honor roll list. It has also helped me use smarter vocabulary. It also made me believe that if you set your mind to something, you can accomplish it with hard work and dedication. CCCS has not only provided me with a great education, but all 452 students at CCCS. Closing down CCCS would do a lot to me. It would definitely affect my education. I would also have to deal with a new school and probably a school that doesn't have an environment as safe as CCCS.

CCCS is excellent school, which if it closes it is going to affect my family because I have a seventh grade student and I will have a sixth grade student and they really want to stay at CCCS. My son likes the way CCCS personnel and classmates are. The teachers care about the students. I like all the activities this school has for the students. Also I like the way they guide them and the rules they have. Please help us to keep CCCS.

Century Community Charter School truly values a superb education for its students--one that encompasses not just book-learning, but creativity and strong values. The teachers receive relevant staff development, the students want to do their best, and parents are supportive. If you have a middle school student in their neighborhood, this is the school for you!

This is a really great school. My son is in 6th grade and loves it. The teachers and principal care a lot about the students. The teachers make sure that the students understand their lessons and they teach them in a fun way. They have a lot of clubs(Xclub, basketball,chess and board games ...) children can choose to participate. Before attending CCCS, our child hated writing essays or drawing. Now he is excited to write and doing the school art project.

Cccs is a great school they give equal amount of attention to every child and strive for the best, offer honor classes, extra curricular activities, sports, and clubs/ organizations. They always try and help those who are in need of help. They are very positive about everything. Not only do they serve as a school for education but they can always talk to you if you need someone to talk to. They are very trustworthy, and the teachers are fantastic. Mrs.Norris also cares about everyone, and they also plan trips for those who have the highest gpa at the end of the year. They make you feel as if you were at home take care of you when your sick and show affection. I Love this school :)

This is a great school! My son is in the 8th grade and his favorite subject is PE/Health. He loves the fact that they talk about nutrition and learning how to count calories. He likes the fact Mr. Pearson offers sports program during lunch. He is much more active and I his grades improve because of this. He has a better attitude towards school this year. Thank you CCCS!!!

CCCS is a school where the staff cares and high expectations. With the high expectations, the students reach heights they never thought they could reach. There is so much for the kids to do. The curriculum is extended through trips, clubs, and enrichments activities on Saturdays. What happens at CCCS makes for well prepared students. They are ready when they leave CCCS for high school and beyond.

The principal is a true instructional leader who promotes a positive attitude toward learning. She encourages her staff, students, and parents to be lifelong learners. The school has many ways to support students in their learning. They have outstanding off-campus activities to make that learning real. If I still had children young enough to attend this school, I'd be first in line!

Century Community Charter School has helped me with reaching heights I never thought possible. I have so far had a wonderful journey at cccs. It betters not only my education but my social skills,and my life skills. CCCS has drasticaly changed my way of thinking about school. Of course it has its bad times but at least we spend them together apposed to schools were neither the students or teachers care about each other. I hope you and your child choose to come to this school so you can both experience great oppertunities and open new doors to a new path, and more happiness

Century Community Charter School is the best middle school for students of color. They are socially, environmentally and emotionally conscious about the students at the school. They become apart of your family as well as you apart of the CCCS Family. From the office staff to the administration they are always available for questions with a smile and a positive attitude. They all work side by side with you to encourage and build up our children to be successful leaders of the future. I am happy that my children have had the opportunity to be in such a great school environment.

Mrs. Yarbrough is an excellent disciplinarian. I believe that she is the backbone to the success of the school. She enforces the rules and does not pick sides. She is one of the most respected and admired people at this school. Students respect and admire her authority. I have worked at many schools as a substitute and a teacher and she is one of the best disciplinarians I have ever seen.

My son began attending CCCS this school year and he enjoys it very much. I asked him just out of curiosity and to find out what his response was, if he regret going to CCCS and if he wanted to attend the local middle school next year, his reply was, 'Never. I love my school.' I am so glad and I know we made the right choice with CCCS. Enforcing rules is was all schools need to do. CCCS is the best. Keep up the good work!

As the parent of a graduate from CCCS and a parent of currently enrolled students at CCCS, I have to say the school is great. My 6 graders are so excited about their Science and Social Studies classes, it just warms my heart. The teacher use hands on projects along with written essays to get the lesson across and my boys love it. Thanks to the creative teachers and the freedom the principal allows them to reach each child where they are. Keep up the good work.

CCCS is a great school! The staff is great and the principal is awesome. They go above and beyond to make sure the children are nutured, but at the same time disciplined. It's possible that the parents voicing negative concerns are the ones that just drop their children off and don't get involved. Parents who are involved and volunteer their time at the school get to see what goes on 'behind the scenes' and they understand the dynamics of the school. CCCS offers many field trips throughout the school year; most of which are F-R-E-E. The school offers Saturday classes, various Clubs, Century Lift afterschool program (again...F-R-E-E), and there is a security guard on premises. No school is perfect, however, CCCS strives to make a difference. Parents.. get involved so you can turn your negative perceptions and comments into positive ones!

I am a parent of two children who attend CCCS. The school has done an awesome job educating and nurturing my children. It is a small community, with staff who go above and beyond to enhance the learning of every child. There are after school clubs, Sat enrichments, Sat. school, electives and honors classes. Like all schools, there are flaws, but the staff work hard to be fair.

I take an active role in my childs learning experience. I have tried to communicate with my childs teachers by phone and email but never received replies.

My child has been attending CCCS since 7th grade. I have been very pleased with the high quality of meeting state standards. The teachers really care about the students. The teachers are well prepared. I also love the fact that you can check homework online as well as your child's grades at all times. Teachers who have not been able to meet these standards have been dismissed. I also think the performance arts is exceptionally at CCCS. Another important factor is the handling of discipline. There is a strict dress code and students are expected to promote strong character, leadership and maintain appropriate behavior at all times. I would highly recommend this school. This is one example of a public school that shows you do always have to go to private school to get a quality education. Keep striving for excellence!

My daughter has done exceptionally well CCCS academic program. She has attended all three years of middle school, and has embraced the challenges and overcome many obstacles. Most of my daughters teachers are and have been the very best. They set the standards higher, which motivates the children to go above and beyond. The principal and staff teach about life and becoming responsible and productive citizens. They emphasize character being important, and how to strive for excellence. What this school offers, should cost major money, but it's free. I am grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to expose my child to great teachers and great teaching, A proud mother D.S

I joined CCCS In the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year. This school is great for me. The teachers take time and put in long hours for all of us students. CCCS is well rounded in academics as well as sports. We have a girls and boys traveling basket ball league, and for the 2007-2008 school year a traveling girl and boy soccer league is going to form. We play many other sports like volley ball, dodge ball and hockey. But more then sports we put together different performing arts programs: Black History, Hispanic Heritage, Spring concert and the talent show. Thank you CCCS for helping to encourager and put confidence in me this past year!
