My son attends preschool at CCLS, and I couldn't be happier with his first school experience. He absolutely LOVES his teachers, and I think they are the model of how I picture a preschool teacher "should" be. The teachers' interactions with the kids, including mediating conflicts, are so positive and loving. I can't say anything about the higher grades, but we are thrilled with the preschool.

October 2010- We do have a complete reading readiness and reading program that certainly includes our kindergarten students. We have curriculum goals for each grade level and would be happy to share those with any interested parent. God's blessings as you look for the perfect school for your child.

CCLS academics are proven in the top 10% of all test scores in the nation as verified by the Blue Ribbon School award received in 2009. Teachers are highly qualified and caring. A caring community environment is evident and each day is faith integrated. My children thrive at CCLS. By the way, tuition is very affordable.

The one and only US Blue-ribbon school in Saint Louis. Affordable, safe, and superior education.

Great care and concern even love for the children. I wonder about the academics though. They do not teach reading until 1 st grade where the public schools begin in grade K.

My personal experience with CCLS is that it is very clickish. The teachers are excellent but the kids are not what you would expect in a christ based school.

CCLS is a good school with involved teachers, engaged students and strong parental involvement. Everyone knows everyone and its not clickish like one may find at many parochial schools. Academically, it is not as strong as the Webster Groves Public School district. I base this on my older kids attending Webster in the primary grades. For example, Webster teaches reading in kindergarten and CCLS doesn't begin reading until first grade. Kindergarten at CCLS is much like an extra year of preschool. Also the spelling words and math workbooks are a grade behind the public schools. I would highly recommend CCLS if you are seeking a caring,nurturing environment for your child. Academically I would rate it a bit above average. The teachers are great and the curriculum is above average but you will pay for extras like band, foreign language and sports.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
