We are a military family and had to move right in the middle of the school year. I was not happy with the reviews and report card from the school she would have been assigned to and I am so blessed CSCA had an opening for my daughter. The staff from the very beginning made our transition seamless. The curriculum is quite challenging compared to her previous school. The 1st grade teachers were amazing at getting her up to speed. By the end of the year she was considered advanced in most subjects. The staff is very focused on the success of students academically and on core values. I have a 30 minute drive to the school but it is completely worth it.
We have three kids. Our oldest started at CSCA in 2008, and our youngest just started last year. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are communicative and supportive, the staff is friendly and helpful. Bullying is not tolerated, providing a safe environment for the kids. We have been very happy at CSCA. What a great school!!
Mrs. Liljekvist is a fabulous teacher. My son is a great kid, but has a lot of energy and can be tough to have in a classroom setting. Mrs. Lil never made him feel like a bad kid. She worked with him and redirected him and helped him learn appropriate classroom behavior. She is patient and kind. I wish I were more like her! What a wonderful influence on my child!
Each year, the teachers start the year by communicating with the parents about homework. The teachers tell the parents how much time to expect their child to spend on homework each night - this time changes depending on the grade level. And the teachers ask the parents to let them know if their child is spending more time than expected. They are very communicative!
Our school principle, Mr. Murphy, is 100% dedicated to the students and parents of CSCA. His position is not an easy one. He is a strong leader who has moved CSCA forward over the years. He leads by example and makes every child feel noticed and important. Thank you so much for all that you do!
CSCA is a smaller school, with a strong emphasis on academics and character values. The staff are kind and very dedicated to the kids. Parents are encouraged to be involved, and it is easy to build relationships with the teachers, principle, and other staff at the school. Even though CSCA is a smaller school, it is very proactive about maintaining and upgrading its facilities. In the three years time that my family has been at CSCA, they have renovated their library, opened a very spacious computer lab, put in a new gym floor, and are currently working on a new playground. The staff and parents of CSCA take pride in the school, and that trickles down to the students. I have been very grateful to have found a school that I feel so comfortable sending my child to.
The immense academic structure fortified with an extremely caring principle and faculty has led my children to embark on a stimulating, eye opening experience. The campus is well groomed, there appear to be extensive teacher involvement outside of class and a high regard for parental support. I would recommend CSCA to any parent contemplating the start of school or a switch.
This has been a Great school for our family. We currently have one child that attends and are excited about our other to join in next year. The school staff has a great desire to build a school that is a great place for kids. The school cares about families, and I think its great that they make such an effort to involve the families with the school. It provides an even and healthy balance of learning both at home and school.
