I'm an alumni of CCS and I think it is a wonderful school if you want to instill a strong Catholic upbringing in your child. I will always uphold the moral values and cherish the memories from going to that school.
I have a daughter in third grade and I am not at all impressed with her progress there. She is the third generation to attend the school and it has really declined in both academic offerings and necessary arts such as drama. I am sending her elsewhere for the fourth grade so that she can experience a broader spectrum of activites and better academic support.
im not a parrent of a child that attended this school i actually attended it myself. I graduated from there in 04 and it was a great school. The teachers were great and really taught well. The academics is really great and when i attended there they had music, sports for both guys and girls, great art teacher really taught you well, and a really great principle/ teacher Sr. Vickki. They had extra-cirricular activites to participate in, it was just a great place to be and learn.
The academic programs are appropriate and measured. The math and science programs are well structured. The school administartors take time to asses your child's academic abilities. The children are exposed to various types of fine art and music. They also have wonderful programs that support the faith-based education. The children have a chess club and other team related organizations. The parent groups are very supportive and active with the community. This is a multi-cultural setting that continues the nuturing from you home to their doors. The class sizes are small and perfect for learning. Most of all the principal is so nice and responsive to the needs of the children and the families. The tuition is also reasonable.
My son really enjoys being a student here. The things that appeal to me most are its diversity and size. I love that the principal knows every single student by name and has such a visual presence - she is almost always there to greet students in the morning and be a safety guide at dismissal.
