One of the hardest working teaching staffs around, those who have a regular classroom. Not sure where the 5 stars for principal leadership came from. He has driven away more teachers than any other. Two of the schools finest just left. He doesn't listen to ideas from his staff and shoots down the ones he pretends to listen to. Used to be a FINE school...until he arrived. I sincerely hope that the school can get back on its feet for the sake of the teachers. Why would a parent want to be involved anyway when all you are met with is a grunt or scowl. that keeps even the best parents away.GOOD LUCK!
I think CRE has some wonderful and caring teachers. I am a parent of previous and current students and my children have thrived at this school.
This school had a few really great teachers that cared about the kids and the level of education.The school however in general was on the state chopping block and was required to offer the choice to attend another school in the area. The level of parent involvment in the school was severly impared by the new regulations put in place in the last two years. They have a great after school program offering: 4h, girl scouts, boy scouts, arts and crafts, choir, and many other choices, including homework help.
