My daughter is finishing up 3rd grade at CCES and boy have we seen it change! When she started kindergarten, CC was a nice, friendly, caring school. Now, nobody seems to know or care anymore. Teachers do not want to get involved and let unacceptable behavior run rampant! Our children have often come home in tears over the things that have happened and they way they were treated! And the teachers refuse to do anything about it. I know of 3 students who will not be attending CCES for the 4th grade and my daughter is 1 of them! If I were you, I'd check out other alternatives! My daughter ranked 1 of the 3 highest FCAT scores in her class and her talents are being wasted. She is constantly bored and not being taught anything new!
My daughter is in the fourth grade at CCES. The school is on point academically and has a very inviting atmosphere. Teachers are very accomodating and will go the extra mile. The PTA is awesome and I love the way they get the parents actively involved. I have actually volunteered many times and have enjoyed interacting with the staff and students. My daughter and I will miss this school when she graduates next year.
My daughter just completed second grade and her teacher was wonderful! There was a lot of school work and projects, but her teacher really tried to make the work fun and she was very concerned and cared for each and every student in her classroom. I felt confident my daughter was in a safe, learning environment. The administration kept parents informed on school happenings and had many social events as well.
