My boys have been students at CPE for three years. We love the school! The teachers are awesome and have always been very caring. I visit often and have always found the ladies in the office very friendly and helpful. We plan on moving after this year, and I will miss College Park.
I agree with the other parent about the front office staff. The are never welcoming when you come in even when you give a smile and are polite. My child is in 3rd grade this year and its our first year in this district. I feel like the curriculum is terribly behind! I feel like my child is coming home with spelling words she learned in 1st grade. Then my child tells me the whole class doesn't know how to do multiplication yet because it hasn't even been taught! The teachers are great and always quick to respond and be helpful if I have a question.
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.
