Mrs. Letvin has been an amazing teacher. She has helped my son as he's adjusted to moving (again! which is very hard for him). She has communicated with me in order to help him. In addition, my son actually tells people he likes his teacher (that hasn't happened often).
Thank you Mrs. Letvin for all you do!
CFES is an outstanding school and supports every kind of student. I have three children that have attend CFES and each child receive the level and focused education that helped them grow.
The teachers, principals, and office staff are all a pleasure to work with and strive to know ever child by name. Lastly, the families and PTA are welcoming and involved to better the student's experience and opportunities at CFES.
At other schools we have attended the homework requirements where excessive. I was thrilled that the 1st grade daily homework is reading for 20 minutes allowing the kids to have time to be kids. The upper grades recommend no more that 1 hour and I have seen the teachers stay true to this goal.
The teachers and staff are constantly on the look out who are making good choices and showing respect. The students who recognized receive the principals "good news moment" award and a positive phone call to the parents are made. My kids all strive to "get caught" doing good thanks to this fun recognition.
The students and faculty focus on opportunities to recognize members of our community i.e. Veterans, military families, heritage and culture. The school also holds several events that involve students from older grades mentoring students from younger grades which increase the overall student ability to relate and know students through out the school. I would like to see more service opportunities in the future.
This is our 5th year with children at CFES and could not be more pleased! The administration really cares about the well being of all the students and the teachers have all been wonderful!! We look forward to the next 5 years!
If you have any special needs that might be a bit messy or not orderly, they are very unfair. They have some good teachers in the autism program but overall if your child is remotely a little difficult they will want you moved to another school.
