My children have attended CES for 6+ years. They HAVE learned to read, write, and count, but they are not challenged. Almost all of the staff (teachers, administrators) are lovely to talk to; however, their performances speak much louder than their words and their performances leave EVERYTHING to be desired. I would give examples to support my statement, however, I have a limited # of characters remaining in this post AND I need to remain anonymous for the sake of my children. There are teachers at CES that have retired but returned to teaching. Those teachers are tired, grumpy, and out-dated. There are also a couple of exceedingly angry, harsh teachers, one in particular, who seem to feel that berating their students and yelling at them in front of others is acceptable. And indeed, it seems to be acceptable as the administration, that is well aware of it, continues to accept it. Additionally, bullying is a much bigger problem at CES than the administration wants to see. It is easier to ignore the problems than face them. I must concede, there are a few acceptable teachers. I would move my children to another school in an instant if possible.
