Best School EVER!! My daughter has made a complete turn around from her grades and test scores at her old school. The teachers stay in contact with the parents and the principal does not put up with attitude and acting out from the students. This school doesn't even have a School Resource Officer because they don't need one. I had to yank my child from Forest Heights because of the fighting going on in the school(classrooms and halls) and her getting injuired because of just sitting at her desk between the two boys. So now I don't have to worry about that anymore. FOCSI (the PTO) is wonderful and all the parents are really active. Again this is the Best School in Columbia!!

My daughter really loves this school. I also like this school very much the smaller number of children in the classroom is a big plus.

The principal is phenomenal and makes everyone feel welcome. She lights up the school. The curriculum focuses on teaching to various learning styles and in-depth investigation of subject matter, mostly through hands-on approaches. The school offers many free 'academies' which extend art and writing from the curriculum. The teachers are experienced and well-educated, many with advanced degrees. The school is used as a training sight for student teachers in local education programs. It's the kind of school you would expect to pay for but because it's a charter school it is free to area students.

I rate Carolina School for Inquiry as an exceptional school; simply because of the feedback from parents, students, community, and even teachers who work. there. Though only in existence for three years, it is making leaps and bounds.

CSI is a different school. The teachers are great! I have enjoyed my daughters 1st year there. Will be going back this fall. Classroom size are smaller and that is a plus. I also like the multiage setting that they have.

This is a wonderful school. I have a child there now, and I couldn't ask for a better school. My child came from a private school, so I was a little concerned with her not being taught on the level that she is use to, but this is definitely not the case here. There are a small number of students, which is great. The teachers are wonderful, and they teach the kids on a much higher level. I definitely would say that this school is on a private school level.
