Century Community Charter School is a great school. Teachers & staff are very interested in the childrens education. Very warm & friendly.
My school Century Community Charter school is the best school ever because we listen, have good grades, and we also pay attention.
Excellent School! As an educator, I love everything about it! The teachers are great and so is administration!
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 and has been awesome in the education, safety and participation of sport , field trips and keeping up with the school interests of my kids.
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 have 4 children, my third one is currently attending and I can't wait for my fourth girl to go there.
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.
My daughter is excited about this school which provides quality education and builds character by dedicated teachers and staff. It feels like family and everyone knows each other. It's a school that doesn't cut corners to provide an amazing well rounded education.
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!
