I always feel good about my daughter attending school at Calf Pen Meadow. The teachers are dedicated, the principal in energetic and engaged and the administrative staff is always willing to be helpful to parents and PTA members alike. There is a real sense of school community. Compassion is shown to those in need of an extra hand and the children seem very willing to help each other too. There is so much more to learn in a school setting each day outside of academics and Calf Pen Meadow does a terrific job when it comes to teaching inside the classroom as well as out.

CPM school is a great school. We were really please with the Kindergarten program and my daughter cannot wait to go back to school. We got a lot of information about school activities in the Friday folders and notes from the teacher so we knew what was going on in the classroom and school. The Principal and Teacher were wonderful. The children learn about respect and discipline (I felt like it was a private school for free).

Just completed Kindergarten. Parent involvement was not encouraged. Teacher was too strict with children. Paraprofessional was unqualified and insensitive to my child's needs. Overall, a disappointing introduction to the school.

Great School. Teachers are well prepared. There are an abundance of activities for the kids and the parent involvement is awesome. The principal needs some interpersonal skills training.

My experience is only with Kindergarten but it has been excellent. Great opportunities for parents to participate and teachers very supportive and in tune with individual needs.

Great School. Children do very well and can't wait to get to school in the morning. Teachers are very involved with students. Principal is very hands-on which really makes a difference. What a great school!
