Communication and oppurtunities abound at CCS. So, if a parent is not aware of their childs progress, it is the parents neglect. Parent participation last year was greater than 70% on this nearly 1,000 student campus. As any successful parent knows, a student cannot achieve without nuturing, discipline, encouragement and steadfastness. Teachers, assistants, and principals available by e-mail, voice mail, conferences, 'parent coffees', and practically anytime one has a need. All the amenities one would expect of first class school. Swimming and tennis facilities, theater, band, dance, junior and varsity sports, discovery center with oodles of programs such as after-school and saturday SAT prep; also after school tutoring for core subjects--most with no additional fee--by the subjects teacher for continuity of learning. Clubs and fundays are plenty. If only there were more than 168 hours in a week.
