This school and all of the staff are very wonderful and very proactive in helping each child.
We feel blessed and very fortunate to be a part of CFE. CFE exceeds all expectations of what a childs school experience should be. Everyone from the awesome principal, Ms. Manning, the superb office staff, the best teachers, the cafeteria staff to the janitor are without a doubt in a class of their own. They provide all students with the opportunity to excell to the best of their abilities. Their support, compassion and patience never waiver, they do it with a smile each and every day. Not because they have to but because thats who they are. We are humbled to be so very lucky to have been touched by the CFE team and forever will be impacted bythis experience. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope you realize how exteremly special you are.
CFE really is a great school. The Teachers and the principals are the best. the teachers keep the parents updated and they are the most hardworking teachers and staff i have ever met. i cant say enought good about them.
CFE is a great school the teachers are expecnced and they keep the parents in touch. they have helped my kids a lot.
Both of my children attend this school and I have been very pleased in all aspects. The principals are very involved and friendly as well as the teachers. Our level of communication has been wonderful. Especially with Ms. Yuell (fifth grade teacher), I wish more teachers were like her, I will hate to see my son leave her class. Kepp up the good work CFE!
My daughter attends this school, and as a 'Non custodial' parent, I have tried very hard to inquire about my daughter and her progress. My calls and e-mails were ignored, I live 4 hours away and I finally had to go to the school and sit and talk face-to-face with the principle, and at that time, was told why should they be put in the middle by providing me information about my daughter when it was my ex-wife's responsibility. I had a court order signed by a judge that said that they were to provide me with what I ask for. I was treated like the enemy while I was there, and still have to contact my daughters teacher often and ask for my daughters report cards and question her progress. I have been to the school once, and as far as I can tell, the school is very clean. This is my daughters last year.
This school has a wonderful mix of new teachers and more experienced teachers. The best thing about this school is the outstanding leadership from the principal and the assistant principal. Students at every part of the spectrum are expected and encouraged to succeed. The school is immaculately clean and very homey. The cafeteria food is great!
I feel this school's discipline policy is too strict on some issues. We also had some concerns about the staff not telling students what they did wrong when they get a behavior mark. My daughter has 3 marks and she wasn't ever told what they are for. I have talked to many parents about this and they feel the same way.This is a big concern for us as parents. Plus I feel the pressure on the students to succeed academically is way to high. Children all learn differently.
