This school is a wonderful start to any child's academic career. The teachers are amazing. My son will complete first grade this year and it is with great sadness that he will move on to another school. He has attended since pre-K and I cannot stress enough how amazing and dedicated the teachers, aides and staff are for all of the students. At CECC you will be spoiled by the talent of the staff, I only hope as we progress through our son's academic career we are met with the same dedication and capability that we have been afforded at CECC!

My daughter has attended this school for pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade. It is a wonderful school with a great staff. There is a lot of opportunity for parents to get involved in the school. The school is clean and has great technology, smart boards, ipads, etc. Most importantly the kids feel safe and have fun while learning. This is the best public school in the area.

Excellent program. The pre-k program has helped so many children in preparing them for the routine of schooling. The teachers are great and love the children unconditionally. There is a very good level of parent involvement. This school has all of the state of art equipment and resource learning materials to get your child off to a good start. Love the resource learning center.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
