As a teacher, I am more concerned with individual student success than anything. There is so much "baggage" students carry that school is some time an outlet for them. Those like myself am not here for a paycheck, but to prepare students for the real world. I wish to see support instead of finger pointing. For the most part, the staff at CP are in it for the kids!!!

One of the worst schools I have ever taught in. The run the hallways, attack teachers, bad students get away with everything until they commit a serious offense. More, a lot more. I would send my dog to this school.

I had a home to come to after school. If your kids do to then this is a great school with good teachers , they care. Otherwise they not there to babysit. I really liked this school and the teachers.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
