We were not thrilled with our experience at this school and have since moved our daughter to public school. The academics were not challenging and our daughter was constantly coming home saying she was bored (not a problem any more). I also felt like the children and parents were very cliquish.
I am very pleased with the learning environment at this school. Kids are taught respect and bad behavior is not tolerated. That provides the right atmosphere for teachers to do their job and kids to perform well. The principal position has been unstable lately, in spite of or maybe because parents as well as the Parish community are very involved.
After having experienced public school we decided to put our oldest in the CCS and have been stunned by the high level of learning our son has had, the confidence he has gained, the faith he has learned. We now have all of our kids (3) in CCS. We are ashamed of not doing this sooner. It is a truly great school.
Not impressed with CCS at all. I was very excited to send my children there but was very disappointed. The curriculum is lacking and the teachers are ok. I was really hoping that since it is a private school it would be held to a higher standard but that is not the case. People say private schools are better, I do not agree with that statement after sending my children to this school.
A place where average children can be educated to achieve their full potential. A safe environment where kindness and manners are taught. My children have learned study skills and personal skills that will serve them well all their lives.
This is a great school for our family. My 3rd and 8th graders are thriving and love school. The families get to know eachother and are very involved in the school.
My daughter is in kindergarten. She is reading at an end of first grade level, and much of the effort is due to her teacher, Mrs. Himmelburg. There is also a lot of emphasis on faith as it relates to holidays. The parents are very welcoming and create a family atmosphere for the school.
