My daughter has attended CMCA K-1st and we have been overall pleased with the quality of education. CMCA uses direct instruction teaching ('Core Knowledge'). A lot of emphasis is placed on memorization. Although the class average is about 25 kids/room, there are always 2 teachers in each class; they are split into smaller groups for reading, spelling and math so that they can excel at their own pace. The homework is a pretty full load and can be overwhelming at times. A few aides left mid-year, so unfortunately my daughter had several changes of teachers in some of her small groups. I was told this isn't the norm, but with CMCA expanding over the next few years I anticipate more growing pains like this (aides coming, then discovering this style isn't for them). My daughter adapted well, but I could see this being a downfall for children who don't like change.
This school is second to none! It is amazing to see these children learn years above their grade level and be so excited while doing it. The energy of the teachers is amazing and the parental involvement is definitely a welcome change from other schools.
CMCA is an amazing school. I don't know what else to say. The teachers are great and really care about the kids. The academic programs are good! It's all good.
Awesome! That is the one word to describe CMCA! The staff and faculty are there out of a labor of love and they genuinely want your child to succeed. My daughter enjoys school so very much and is reading at a 3rd grade level and she just finished kindergarten! I would recommend this school to anyone!
Incredible energy and excitement! My kids have really learned to write well and express themselves with confidence! CMCA has exceeded my greatest expectations!
Our child is receiving a super overall educational experience. The kids are learning an incredible amount and mastering the basics. In addition character development is also emphasized and seems to be effective.
An incredible school, academically challenging, teaching core learning and really is a superior school.
