    I have one child in this school at the present time and up unitl now my child has had a great expierence there but this year as proven to be the complete opposite. THe lower couple of grades are all good but after that the school is really lacking. My child will be going to Mossville school next school year.

    As a parent whose child transfered in from another school I can say that the principal and staff at CEC are second to none. They really have the children at heart and are doing their best to give them the best education possible.

    The new administration for the 04 05 school year is outstanding. The students are performing at higher levels and have exhibited excellence in educational extracurricular activities. The new principal although firm is very fair.
