a very special school with lots of great families. we feel very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful community.
It is good because of its curriculum; small classes with 2 teachers per classroom; integrated curriculum units each semester; integration with the arts; involved families
My grandson is in his second year there. I have spent some time there, including a 'family' day--every family was invited to plan and conduct activities with the children--it was fun and interesting. The teachers were amazing--very caring but demanding, with high but realistic expectations. They managed a pretty large classroom with a diverse group of kids in every way and pulled it off beautifully. My grandson is very happy there, has learned a tremendous amount and loves it! It is a new school and I was worried--but it is really fantastic.
I love the teachers (2 per class!), the principals, the programs, the support staff, the community involvement, the kids and the parents. I love everything about it.
The staff is amazing, great parental participation, engaging curriculum and so much more!
The students are valued and respected as individuals. There is no school with a more dedicated staff. My only complaint is that it has to end after 5th grade!
Every child in America should have a great start education like our children do at Community Roots Charter School.
Family involvement and support, small class size, integrated arts, students valued, accepted and respected!
They care for the children and are not afraid to show that they care. The children receive education and guidance in a loving environment. When my child leaves home in the morning i have no fear or doubts she is in good hands. I just love this school and its great staff.
The Community Roots core values are not just on paper; our children, teachers, administrators and parents bring these values to life in their teaching and interactions. COMMUNITY ROOTS VALUES: Honor Yourself and Others Work Hard - Help Each Other - Work Together - Try New things - Be Reflective
It is THE BEST! The most thoughtful, individualized yet cohesive approach to education ever. The work they do is astounding.
The teachers are great, the staff is wonderful and the kids are creative happy and supported - Love the school!
I attended an art class with my granddaughter and the teacher student interaction was amazing. I had a great time and wished they had this kind of approach to education when I was going to school. The education that my grandaughter gets is truely remarkable. I commend the staff on doing a great job. THANKS Community Roots Charter School
My daughter is not only learning academics, she is learning to love learning. The environment promotes a positive feeling about school for students that really helps to motivate them. The warmth and nurturing; however, does not get in the way of the school operating like a well-oiled machine. The school has great academics, arts and varied enrichment programs. Moreover, everyone works together there. Teachers, parents, administration and support staff come together in a way you rarely, if ever, see in public schools or even the best private schools.
Community Roots is an informal and orderly school - nurturing and supportive with clear standards and high expectations for each child. There is a thriving and healthy partnership between parents and teachers. Attention is also given to your child's emotional and social development. In short - the school takes a holistic approached to education. Other pluses - teachers do not yell; inappropriate behavior is dealt with in a fair, firm and timely manner; the school is committed to community; and with two teachers per class you are comfortable that children are getting the attention they need.
My child is getting a fabulous education in a welcoming, nurturing envoronment. CRCS is a small school with two great teachers per class of 25. There are many specialists available to assist children at all levels. The core values are ' Honor yourselves and others, Work Hard, Help each other, Work Together, Try new things, Be reflective'. This is a school that is making a difference in the lives of its students. I could go on and on.
The atmosphere is great. The teachers are wonderful. The children are happy and LEARNING.
Every morning the directors walk the halls at drop-off time, checking in with parents, children, and teachers. It's exactly the kind of caring, hands-on leadership you want to see in your school.
The children receive individual attention from their teachers and other staff members, children are well behaved. The children are engaged by their teachers and the environment is overall a warm and loving one, very welcoming for all the children.
