My daughter attends this school and I am very happy and satisfied with the school. They have high academic standards and the teachers are very enthusiastic and motivated. The teachers make it easy for parents to contact them and discuss any concerns parents may have. Although parent participation is not required, the PA is very active in the school.
My daughter has been attending this school for a few years and we are very happy with our experience. CAPS is highly focused around academics and I initially had reservations that she may not have a well-rounded elementary school experience, however those reservations have subsided. Throughout the years they have added classes such as PE, dance, computer technology, etc. to the curriculum. In addition the parent involvement opportunities have grown allowing us to make a direct contribution to our child's school experience - jog-a-thon, muffins with mom/donuts with dad, bake sale, etc. While academics is a primary focus for CAPS (and us parents), the school has grown to providing a well-rounded experience for my daughter.
My sons have been going to this school for years, and I am so impressed and happy with it. This is an excellent, well-rounded college-prep school with rigorous academic program, very committed accessible teacher and strong leadership. We wish there are more great middle and high schools like that for our kids!!
