Champagnat Catholic School is a great place to help bring up your kids. The teachers and staff sincerely care for their students. My son wakes up wanting to go to school every day when he did not at his old school. Thank you for the hard work. Keep it up!

I was a former student of Champagnat Catholic school. Honestly this school is great in the fact you grow up with your classmates. I was there from 6th to 11th with all the same classmates. We were family. Besides that the school is money hungry. All they do is rob your money. The education is nonsense how can a high school graduate from the year before teach? Makes no sense at all. Teachers would play favorites & let kids use food,eat & etc during class. I went to a public school my senior year & I can say I missed out on a lot. Shame on parents who say Public schools ruin kids ... I prefer a public school over this junk any day. The "new" principal is ridiculous. She doesn't care nothing but recurring athletics to play for their team for the wins .... No wonder they had to change area ... Did you see their new school? No comment. I picked 1 star because I had no other choice.... Thanks C/O 2011

This school is the worst school in south Florida academic wise. Teachers don't care, the principal just holds the gifted back, she really doesn't care about the education of her students. Do not send your son or daughter here.

This school is Above average. The education is amazing. My daughter has been here for almost 8 years since kinder garden and shes going now to 7th. There is one reason why i gave this school four stars. It has one teacher who doesnt pay attention durring his classes talks and texts on his phone and even worse things.Other Than that its an amazing school Highly Recomend. BY THE WAY IF THE TEACHER I TALKED ABOUT READS THIS HOPE YOU GET FIRED YOUR THE WORST TEACHER EVER YOU DONT EVEN COACH GOOD.

Champagnat has been my sons school for 3 years now. I thank the faculty and staff for bringing out the best in him. This year he is excited to return to school because "its going to be real cool". Or so he says. As a mom there are few words that could top those. Knowing my son loves where he spends countless hours at, is great.

This school is the worst school I have ever seen. The principal is rude and selfish. She doesn't care about the students' education, only about how much money she can make from them. All the owners are money hungry and don't care about education at all. The staff is horrible and not helpful whatsoever. Grades are rigged and teachers play favorites. To get any type of paperwork from the office, you need to show up several times because the office is not efficient and extremely rude. Everything about this school is unfair, if you would even want to call it a "school". Never send your child here, it will be the worst decision you will ever make. It's a total nightmare! I rated this school 1 star because it was the lowest value it would let me give, but it really deserves 0.

I had my children in CCS for 6 years until we moved to Broward. Both did great in the new school (public) they were in the same or better level. On their first year FCAT they scored 4. So I do highly recommend this school and love discipline!!

We have had a very positive experience at this school. My child is receiving an excellent education, far exceeding the state standards for language, math and science. The teachers are knowledgeable, committed, and most importantly - aware of the spiritual dimension that a child needs in order to learn and grow. The office staff knows every child by name and is very supportive and caring. I believe in the philosophy of education at this school and in the atmospher that has been created by the very dynamic, creative and spriritually aware principal.

This school is by far the worse school when it comes to education. I went there for many years, middle school through some high school years. It is more focused on discipline, and not even because they demand respect and give none. There is a lot of playing around. When I moved to a different school I realized on how many academic opportunities I had missed out on all 5 years. I would never put my daughter there.

Their is no way, that i can discribe this school, because its awsome and its like your own family, if you have a problem, everyone will always help you out, not only that the teachers teach, and you learn a lot of things you wouldn't have the opportunity to learn elsewhere.I have been in Champagnat ever since 3rd grade and i wouldn't live it for anything even after i graduate i'll make sure to come visit often.

Do not send your child here.... they are on the voucher system and will not provide your child with the education that the boast. In fact, it will be worse than a public school....

i am a former student at ccs. i attended ccs from kinder up until i graduated from highschool. now i wasnt the best student, didnt even try really, but the opportunities are there for the students to learn and grow as individuals but in order to do that one must assume responsibility for oneself.

this school is a joke. it in no way prepares kids for the real world. it just shelters them and trys to work religion into things like math and reading, this ofcourse makes no sense. save your money.

This school is affordable and exceedingly effective on focusing on each students individual needs. I couldnt be happier.
