This school's staff is THE BEST! The teachers, parents and administration are TOPS! Students, even the "bad ones" are treated like family, with respect and love. I wish schools everywhere had the same need for students to not only learn book smarts but common sense smarts. It's really sad how parents now look to their children's schools to actually raise, disciple, feed and entertain their children. It should NOT be allowed but for those kids who don't get any support at home this school is one that offers just that support, guidance, help, education and love. My son has been a student at the Center for the last five years and we won't leave until the teachers, staff and administration leave!
This school has a history of educating, nuturing and supporting its student and parent body. I love the attention that people like Mrs. Foster and Mrs. Butler pay to children and to parents who need it. The students become fast friends for life. The building needs to expand tremendously, and if it did the school would be bursting at the seams. The staff are kind and caring with a personal touch. The curriculum puts students one year ahead of other schools. Keep up the good work and please expand!
My children have attended this school from kindergarten. for several years. My oldest is now in high school. The staff goes over and beyond the call of duty. I wish the building was larger. If the school was bigger I know that they wouldn't have a problem with getting students.
I have attended this school for every year, except 6th grade, in which I moved on to go to a DPS. I excelled in every course in the DPS curriculum. C.L.C offers a great opportunity for students, as well as a promising future. I am now a senior at University High School, where I continue to use and develop my literacy, mathematical, and deductive reasoning skills that I have attained from C.L.C. The students who come here has an amazing opportunity ahead of them, and the school does open doors.
My child has attended C.L.C for seven years.The staff are great and very active.I just wish the school was a bit bigger. That is one of my biggest concerns.Still, the staff help children when they are behind and don't they don't mind.
My son attended C.L.C. for 6 years and my daughter for 5 years. C.L.C. gave them their roots. I am so appreciative of the staff at C.L.C. My son graduated in 2004 and went on to Oak Park High School where he used a lot of what he learned in C.L.C. The books that he had to read in high school he had already read while he was a student at C.L.C. To this day he still resites the 'I Have A Dream' speech that was taught to him by Mrs. Butler. He is now a student at Ferris State and is still using advise and knowledge gained at C.L.C. My daughter who is now a honor student at Luddington goes back to C.L.C. every chance she gets. Just like my son she is still using materal she learned at C.L.C. I also go back to visit with the staff.
My son has been in attendance at CLC for 2 years now and I am honest when I say I have no complaints at all. The one on one with the students, parents teachers and supporting staff is great. The atmosphere is a village that comes together for one common goal. To educate and equip our children with the necessary fundamentals to compete and excel in our society today. As with any company , family , organization etc. Problems will arise but at CLC they are not problems that can't be fixed.
My daughter has attended your facility for 3 school years now, I love that all of the teachers make an effort to know all of the children, and they take the extra effort to help those students whom are behind and or need special time and attention, its more than a school, its small and more like a family.
this information is not correct. my child has attended center for literacy and creativity since before it was a charter school. this is an excellent school. and for the record all schools have discipline problems. they do have extra curricular activities and sports. parents just don't care.
