We have been a very active family at this school for almost 4 years. It gets better and better every single year. My daughter has come a long way from being the shy girl she once was and the one on one attention my son has gotten to improve his reading skills is off the chart! We have lived in 2 different school districts and this school is by far better than any district around it! For the parent with the comment about the playground...there has been a playground there since the spring of 2007! They are also trying to install a specific kindergarten playground but must wait until the decision is made on to where to put the new modular addition!
This school is awesome! Parent-Teacher-Child relationship is wonderful. A good amount of family involvement activities. Principal is an outstanding, professional and compassionate person. My daughter loves him and so do we. He is always surrounded by the students when he enters the room. His introduction to the safe schools project has made our decision to send our daughter here even better. She is a kindergartner, by Thanksgiving she was counting by 5s and 10s. Her accomplishments and growth at this school is amazing.
This is my second year teaching at CPA. I love my job and all of my co-workers. As a staff we work together and I believe that this is what sets CPA apart from other schools. We have such a great team and awesome leader. Mr. Carr has turned our school around. The kids love and respect him. Our students are excitied to be in school and a lot of them tell me at the end of the day that they do not want to leave. The kids feel safe and cared for while they are in our building. We are currently building a new gym. This will bring in new extracurricular activities and opportunities for the kids.
This is my son's second year at CPA. I was so impressed with his kindergarten teacher Ms. Taylor and am definitely delighted with his teacher Ms. Johnson this year. He has done nothing but improved in behavior and education. I am pleased that I chose to put him in this school instead of sending him to a public school. I was not too sure about this years principal Mr. Carr...however I understand that he is just trying to displine our children and better our school. I would and have reccommended this school to anyone with children. The teachers are so involved in improving the education of the students. And are quick to help students, if they are concerned or even if the parents are concerned. There is free tutoring offered after school..busing no matter where you live in Franklin County. I love this school.
My daughters started kindergarten this year. They absolutely love it! I can't say enough about how much they have learned since starting there. I haven't had much contact with the Principal, but he seems as though he is wanting to make a change. I love the curriculum and hope to continue sending my children to CPA. I think that the PTO should look at the duties of their officers and try to come up with a lighter load of duties; working mom's and dad's are already exhausted by their normal jobs that the duties seem overwhelming to me. If I was a stay at home mom, I would join the PTO.
Last year my son did very well at CPA and his teacher was excellent. This year, well lets just say that I am taking my son out of CPA and enrolling him in another school. The teacher that he has this year is not involved with the kids the way that his teacher last year was. She seems to be wrapped up in her own issues rather than leaving her problems at the door and doing the best job she can do for her students. The new principal isn't good either. I am very disappointed in the teacher and the principal this year because my son did so well last year. I would say to look into your child's teachers background before enrolling them. Every situation is different.
Columbus Preparatory is an awesome school! The teachers at the school all dedicate so much of their time and energy to improve each and every student's abilities. I love working at CPA and would definitely send my own children there!
This school presents a postive, safe, and healthy enviornment for children. My own children will attend CPA.
