    This school is considered to be the best public school in the area. Our child excelled at this school but when we moved to a different location we discovered that our child was slightly behind his peers in certain areas. Both parents work and our child has had many different care givers in his life with no disciplinary problems whatsoever but at this school seemed to have a problem in 1st grade. Given that our child is in 2nd grade now with once again absolutely no disciplinary issues we suspect that the 1st grade teacher did not properly control her classroom. Also our child always liked his teachers and likes his teacher now but did not like his 1st grade teacher at all and still talks about her. In general we liked the school but am glad to be in a different location with much better schools available to us.

    Outstanding school. Teachers on all grade levels meet and care about the needs of their students. Community support is unbelieveable. Grandparents are as involved as parents. PTA is deticated and offers super support to CES! My mother my siblings and I and my children attended CES. Can't say enough about it.

    This is the best public school I have ever had my children attend. Great teachers and staff. After 5 years of private schools - C.E.S. has renewed my faith in the public school systems.

    its a good school has some really great teachers but when my child ended up needing some special help they led us on for 2 years and ended up not helping us because he didnt meet the requirements for special help .
