I love this school. My daughter is in Kindergarten and I think it is great that all the Kindergarten teachers and staff know her by name and recognize myself and all other involved parents by sight. They are very caring and work well with the childrens emotional, mental, and educational well being. My daughter is nurtured at home and at school. Ihave seen a great improvement in her self confidence and her personality is soaring.

This school has been a big disappointment. Our second grader needed to be in a resource room w/ a smaller student ratio which was not available. The Staff does not try to help children w/ possible disabilities. They just label the child and suspend them for unreasonable amounts of time. The staff are quick to deal w/ a behavior but not quick to find the cause of it. The main response was we do not have time to deal w/ him (behaviors). You must schedule an appt to speak w/ the Principal. At best this school is mediocre when it comes to No Child Left Behind. I Thank God that I had sense to get legal representation so that my childs rights to be educated would be fulfilled. As a result of this schools my child went from Honor Role to Failing. Parent Advocates through the District will assist you.

My children have been attending CAS since its inception. I love the school and the support system that is available (and believe me, it is available). I have home and mobile telephone numbers of several teachers as well as email addresses so that I may always be able to reach them. They have my information as well. The key to success at any school (not just CAS) is family involvement. If a family representative never attends school conferences, assemblies, etc. then they are expecting too much of the school and too little of themselves. It truly does TAKE A VILLAGE...If a parent is still displeased AFTER communicating with the school, the parent should contact the school board and make the concerns known. I suspect that families that have problems with our CPS simply expect a greater role by teachers than realistic. I am VERY pleased with most of the teachers of CAS.

My niece currently attends this school and everyday I beg her mother to take her out. I had high hopes for this school when it first opened. I even attended this school when it was just Mohawk Alternative Middle School, so you would think that in some way I would be biased in a positive way. In this school the children do not come first. Every teacher that I have spoken to about my niece and her lessons the teachers all say, 'well we are simply following the curriculum and thats all. We have a certain amount of material to go over during the year and we must meet it.' That is ridiculous! Even if a child if falling behind they do not have a support system set up to help that child. The tutoring sessions are nothing but free babysitters. Please Africentric, START FOCUSING ON THE CHILDREN!
