My child has been going to this school for over three years and overall very happy with my decision to choice him in. Everyone knows your child's name and you do get the sense that their main goal is to do their best for your child. It saddens me that the original principal left because the kids where doing so well prior. We love, the rolling over the teacher to second grade because its one less stress for the kids. This is very parent involved school for a one on one time for reading etc. Now if we can just get a principle to stick.

I am uncertain where to begin. My daughter was struggling with reading, writing, and math. In kindergarten her teacher and I thought about holding her back, but we though that she would connect in first grade. At our school they loop with the teachers so they have them 2 years in a row. She struggled in first grade and I had many meeting with the teacher. They finally got her an IEP in "speech" for her R's, which I still did not understand because I was not concerned about her speech. I was concerned about her "READING, SPELLING, and MATH," though they did pull her out and put her in small groups reading etc.. Finally in second grade, as I was still talking to her teacher and watching her struggle I found an outside source and had her tested for dyslexia. She was diagnosed with moderate-to-severe dyslexia. At that time I sent the 60 page report to the school and requested another IEP meeting. At that meeting they told me my daughter did not "QUALIFY" for any other services except for speech, I was dumbfounded. It took 5 more meeting including the East Valley Special Ed Director to get her an IEP in reading. Do I think that CCS is doing a good job, no!

Teacher Quality could not be higher than those at CCS. Teachers are creative, patient, dedicated, and absolutely fun. I only rated principal leadership slightly lower because they are about to have their third principal in 3 years. My daughters have received an awesome education since making the switch to CCS. Silly kids, can't wait for break to be over so they can go back to school!

I do appreciate the amount of invovlement the school wants from the parents. I feel that the building is old, and even looks uninviting compared to others in the area. But I haven't had any problems with the staff. I have had major issues with the transportation for the EVSD though. They've lost my child, and my kid's bus drivers have made a few mistakes that i've caught (I am sure there is more...) and They were unwilling to help me when THEIR scheduling of the routes interefered with THEIR own rules. I had to take the matter to the superintendent to get it resolved. Other than that I think this school is good.

I like the family atmosphere at the school. We have had some very positive experiences with the teachers.
