I have been dealing with CSE for 8 years now, and it started out great, but since the new administration has taken control, yes I said control, the school has gone downhill. Parents are excluded every chance they get, stopped monthly newsletter, do not communicate new policies or changes in policies, students not allowed to have fun. 1/6 or lunch spent with heads on the table, no touching at recess, no fun days or spirit weeks. Kids are treated and expected to act like soldiers. Sad! Office staff is not friendly at all. This is not a welcoming or warm environment at all.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

The teachers that are left from the Walker era are wonderful, they are caring, compassionate and they try so hard to incorporate fun into the classroom!


Develops character: Disagree

The principal targets children that they do not like. Bullying issues are not resolved, and ignored!

Does not want true parent involvement. Only friends of the teachers allowed to volunteer. Has a visitation policy to block parents. Has a cafeteria policy that requires parents to sit separately. Will tell you they don't need volunteers anytime you try to volunteer. Parent involvement to this group means sign the agenda and stay away. Current administration is very pro-union teacher and very parent unfriendly. The teachers are always right. The parents are always wrong. If children get hurt in the process it does not matter.

I have two children at CSE, one in 2nd year, now 2nd grade, and the other just started in Pre-K. It has been a while since these posts about CSE having a special needs focus. I see a wonderful, exciting school where all of the students are engaged in the learning experience, and there are regular activities where parents can volunteer or visit. We have movie night which is a great time. Teachers evaluate students' abilities, communicate ideas/suggestions with parents and our kids are led to perform at their best. The staff is proactive where misbehaving and bullying does show up, and they work with the parents and children together to get back on track. My kids love Cranberry Station!

Caters to special ed students. Does not work well with regular ed students. Administration is inflexible and treats school like a military establishment instead of a school.

My daughter is in 4th grade now at Cranberry Station. She has been there since kindergarten and I think it is the best thing that has ever happened to her. I believe my daughter has some form of ADHD but was never officially told that she did by a Dr.she has excelled at Cranberry. They have a full staff that reviews her progress for OT and speech for as long as she needs it- this is a great relief since I was paying to get her help with speech. She has had two or three incidents where bullies were verblally bothering her, and I told the teacher and it was dealt with right away. Every teacher is concerned for the children. Every teacher is good. I am very picky and protective of her and I have been very happy with Cranberry.
