CES provides a great environment for learning. Small class sizes, indidvidual attention and a focus on creative learning help make this one of the best schools in the state.

Posted May 15, 2007

Our family chose to pay tuition to send our child to Clinton Elementary specifically because of three major factors. First of all, the outstanding report card records consistently showed improvement of the students' progress from year to year (not to mention the outstanding scores each year). Secondly, there were only two other schools in all of Anderson County that compared to the level of enrichment classes offered with CES being the top of the three by offering Library, P.E., Guidance, Music and Art for the younger classes; band, drama and a few other choices for the older classes. A third point that was favorable to our family was the option of allowing our child to attend the elementary school through the 6th grade (which is becoming a non-option with all other elementary schools in the county).
