Great school! I just finished up at Open House and boy what a turn out, the entire gym was filled and excited about the upcoming school year. I'm also excited about the new PTO president who seems to really want to make a difference. My kids have been attending Cape Prep. since it open four years ago. I was unhappy with the way the previous management company and administration were running things and was ready to leave the school. I stuck it out and have been very thankful that I did. The new company and principal that took over have made great changes. Teachers and administration go the extra mile to provide every child with a high quality individualized education program. The new company and administration have only been there two years and the school has gone up an entire letter grade and is out of state school improvement. My kids are high performers, but my friend who also attend have a student who was labeled and struggling at his previous school, he came to Cape prep. last year and is doing excellent. Kids develop their academic skills and physical skills at Cape prep. They now have a library and science lab. My kids get free soccer, tennis, basketball and martial arts plus extra reading and math instruction. I couldn't ask for a better school.
The previous management company and administration required hours of homework and my kids were very frustrated. The new company and administration uses more common sense homework policy that is reasonable and not overwhelming especially with the extended school day.
Part of the character education that school has that includes the martial arts tenants that students must follow in school and in life in addition to the compassion and example the teachers and administration shows develops compassion and empathy in students.
Parents pay attention. Cape Prep started off with great teachers when Celerity took over but in the past two years the good ones have left. Everything is wrong with this school from the busses not properly working. The principal needs more training to know how to run a school. She has no clue how to be a principal. It's not a fitness school. There is no library, or a science lab as they advertise. The office is lacking staff members. PE is a joke! I can keep going but I will just stop there. This is not a real school compared to other good ones around. Do your children a favor and get them out of there. I know from experience. If you spend one whole day there or two to observe or attend the PTO meetings you will know it's not a school for your kids.
I have several students attending this school and have been very impressed with the teachers and principal Fowler who is always available welcoming and friendly. I love the way the schools works to meet the needs of all students with strong academics and still developing fitness and teaching kids to be healthy and learn how to be respectful and responsible. More schools need to have their personal and student centered approach. I haven't had any issues with the new lunch lady. I didn't care much for the one last year. The new lady brings treats and rewards for students showing respect and using good manners in the cafeteria.
Well let me first off start by saying that the teachers are awesome I love all the teachers in the k through 2nd. The middle school teacher not so happy with last year and they have him there this year. And the front office staff and the new cafeteria lady is horrible. And the new tkd teacher not even teaching tkd how are they gonna preform in tournaments if they don't know the stuff they need to know and today they could not even call the parents to let them know that a bus is running late maybe your front office staff should come in earlier than 730 talk about lazy. The cafeteria lady so rude and disrespectful towards the kids. Not happy with front office staff and how it is ran maybe the staff should be there early enough to catch what is going on and I don't like that the tkd teacher is talking bad about the teacher from last year how unprofessional. They could do better I am not going to rate the school. But if I did it would be on the teaching of those few teachers.
