My child just started kindergarten at CRES. We are amazed at how poor the curriculum is relative to other elementary schools in the area. We are only 15 days into the school year and CRES is lagging behind the curriculum at the other schools. At CRES, they are learning A, B, Cs. and at Hoosier, Geist, and Lantern they are learning sight words. At CRES, they are learning to hold a pencil and trace lines. At Hoosier, Geist and Lantern, they are learning to write sentences with 3-letter words and sight words. At CRES, my child is coming home bored from not being challenged. Friends at other schools are coming home exhausted from learning so much. CRES exemplifies the failure of public schools and common core.

My 3 year old daughter is attending this school this year in 2014. So far my daughter's teachers(total 3) and all the staff are dedicated and wonderful! I really amazed to see my kid learning things so fast and and always eager to go to school even when she is ill. I get bi-weekly newsletters about the theme of what they are going to learn and do for next two weeks. It seems my kid is very busy inside school.She really learning a lot from her school.

CRES lacks a community feel. There are not any after school clubs or groups for the students to be a part of. There were only three opportunities to volunteer in my child's classroom this year. The only readily available communication between home and school is email and it often takes a few days to receive a response. Parent involvement is very limited by the school and teachers.

Two of my three children have gone through this school and I can't say enough good things about it. Great teachers, very relaxing environment, great office staff, excellent music and art teachers. I have one more child and he is definitely going to be going to Cumberland Road K-4.

We moved from PA to IN and were initially worried. But now I cannot find words to Thank teachers (Mr. Greiwe and Mrs. Roth). The complete transition was very smooth and my son enjoyed in their class. He could not wait to go to school and always came home happy with lot of knowledge. Probably some of the best years of my son.

My son loves this school. He has enjoyed the personalized attention and the enriching activities provided there. To anyone that is considering this school, I would definitely recommend it. My son started off Kindergarten already well ahead in reading. His teacher recognized this and has been so supportive of his needs. She has evaluated his progress all year long and has adjusted the level of books he's reading so that he gets better at a pace he's comfortable with. He can't wait to go to school every day and absolutely hates to miss school when he's sick. We have loved it! I can't believe the types of books he's reading now. It's amazing and I have the teachers and staff to thank for that.

My daughter has been at this school for 2 years. She has had a wonderful experience. She loves to go to school every day and as a matter of fact, she cries if she has to miss due to being sick. We have had wonderful teachers and the new principal is awesome. I could not have asked for a better experience for her. She is in Celebrations of the World Club and Student Council. They attend one 'specials class' (music, PE and Art) every day. I really can't say enough about this school. We are moving after this year and we are sad to have to leave this school.

My husband and I moved here from Jacksonville, Florida so my son would have a chance at a great education! Though we have only been here for a month and school has only been in session for a week my son is the happiest and most excited about school than he has ever been! The staff and children here at Cumberland are just wonderful and very kind (unlike his other school) it s great to see him smile instead of coming home crying! Thank you to everyone at Cumberland Rd Elementary for making my son and myself very happy!

I am new to the school ..so I really can't give a full review..but thus far I am really happy with the school and so is my son...he loves his new teacher and he adjusted very well his first week. The communication with the teacher is great and the office staff are more then helpful. I am delighted to be a part of a great school system....but its the staff that makes it so great. Thank you for welcoming my son!
