As a recent visitor to the school, my visit was handled totally unprofessionally. The Director who needed to focus on Me "chatted" on her cell phone rather than asking the caller to call back. During one particular call, she got up "tossed" a brochure at me and left the room talking on the phone leaving me wondering, why did I bother coming in. The brochure she gave me was "useless" and didn't pertain to our conversation. She even sent staff in who just looked at me. They probably were wondering why they were there. I actually thought of doing a quick dance to get some reaction out of the staff. Eventually, the Director came back to the room and said I'd have to come back and left. What an experience! If they are this disorganized with a "guest" can you imagine how disorganized they are with their students?!?!?! No, thanks.

I strongly disagree with the posting dated March 1, 2013. CCFA is filled with dedicated educators and amazing children. The new CEO and staff are working hard to ensure that every student is prepared for the challenges of education beyond CCFA. The students enjoy wonderful opportunities within their community, as well as in the classroom.

Sadly this school does not actually educate children. CCFA is good for a full day kindergarten but nothing else. The students attending are extremely below grade level. This K-2 school does not prepare students for 3rd grade (when they enter another charter school or attend school in their neighborhood district). I would not send my child to CCFA, nor would I recommend this school to any parent.

This school is good for for kindergarten but not much else. The Director is a control freak and treats parents as if they haven't any rights. She is queen of her castle so to speak. I do not recommend this school unless you are okay with not having a say in your child's education.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
