This school is horrible. Very few teachers, the principle has no control over anything. Classes are falling apart. Ac is broken every now and then. No computers. No actual education. Kids cannot enjoy or get to experience any real academic activities. Do not enroll your child here. It would be a mistake.

My daughter attends this school and it is decent for primary but after 3rd grade we are looking at another school due to the lack of computers, qualified teachers, and availability of extra curricular activities there. I am surprised to see this school is given 4 stars to be honest. I'd give it 2 at the most.

I can't believe the description of the school includes a library. I was a student there and i never saw a library...all i saw were a few book shelves with books dating back to the b.c years. There are no computers, so all students who get out and decide to attend college are already behind. When i look back, maybe it was a safe move for my parents to send me to this little school, however, i learned nothing there. I learned everything as i struggled through college, and trust me, many students decide to give up because it becomes too difficult.

I am so very thankful that my child is able to attend Champagnat! The difference between this school and all of the public schools my child has been in is just night and day! The children in this school are well mannered, friendly and over all good kids. The teachers are friendly, warm, and eager to teach. The director is always available and keeps a tight ship! I am just thrilled with this school! My child finally enjoys attending school!

I have 2 sons at this school. Teachers are always available to parent and willing to go that extra mile for their students. Thank Dr. Alonso, Mrs. Lopez & Dr. Santos.

I absolutely love the school. If you have no respect towards the teachers they will not tolerate it. I have been a student in CCS for a long time and I know very well how our school runs. Respect, learn to show it before you expect it in return. The kids are great, we have a mix of everything. At the end, this school is pretty much like family to anyone. It's small, comforting and loving. Nothing like any others.CCS Rocks! enroll your child :]

This is the worst school in Miami. Please parents if you want yor child to actually learn take them elsewhere. The staff is utterly rude and very little teaching goes on in there. I know this because i was a student there until recently.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
