This school has a great pre -k program I give it a 5 star, not the school. .the teachers are amazing. .I do recommend ms.Lynch she is amazing and so wonderful with the kids...my child has learned so much, .from the teacher aides mrs.cox is awesome. . She is also another great teacher. .love her! On the down side the front office is always weird they are not friendly and make u feel so uncomfortable. .they rarely make any effort to talk or give a friendly welcome to the parents. ..

2003-2004 (3rd grade) was our daughter's first year at CPE and it was disappointing, to say the least. Transferring from another school within the district to CPE was exhausting for our daughter and for us! The discipline, or should I say lack thereof, is one area that needs major improvement. The only good thing that happened in our daughter's 3rd grade year was that she had an awesome teacher, whom has since transferred out of the district! As we are not allowed to transfer schools within the district, we keep our fingers crossed and pray that next school year will be a much better experience.
