    I attended this school and it enriched me as a person. It prepared me for life and helped gain the National Honor Roll. This school is great for struggling and very intelligent students

    My son is in the Kindergarten at CCPA and I have been very impressed. He is reading and spelling words and we're only half way through the school year. The teachers are tough on the kids but I can appreciate that because it creates an environment thats focused on education and goofing around is not tolerated. My son has learned a lot this year his vocabulary has really expanded. The parent night allows the parents to become involved and they provide weekly reports as to what's being learned and send home 'lots' of material to work on at home. My son is so excited and pumped up about leanring 'kudos' to CCPA Thanks!!

    I think that the school does an excellent job creating a learning atmosphere. The teachers are knowledgeable and easily accessible to the students and parents. I think it is a family environment. My son is currently a 2nd grader and my middle son will be attending this fall. I am excited about the school year and look forward to participating in the learning environment so that my children can have a positive and successful learning experience.

    They are very unorganized and have no well being at all. They are all about Money money money and don't even think about the kids. I had one small child and she was never paid attention to. CCPA came into education without a brain they don't know what they are doing! Please don't send your kids to CCPA!

    My child has been a student at ccpa since 10/99 and the teaching and discipline has gone down hill. There is no control in this school. The students have no respect for the staff including the principal. I've removed my child for this reason and strongly suggest that other parents do the same. My child is in the 8th grade and never has homework or spelling words to learn. The staff is very young and they have no respect for the students or the parents. No! I would not recommend this school for any child or animal.

    My son has attended CCPA for 3 years and I love it. They have great teachers that really care about the students well being and educational growth.

    My eldest daughter is getting ready to graduate from CCPA's Kindergarten. The teachers and staff have always been very helpful and kind. The only time we ever had a problem it was quickly addressed and resolved! My daughter loves it there and I plan to enroll the rest of my children in CCPA. This is an excellent school despite what the angry parent of April said. Enrollment is no problem and as long as your child is well behaved there is hardly ever a problem other than normal school kids arguments. I would suggest everyone in the local area look into sending your child there!

    The administration at CCPA is biased towards some students. They play favortitism and are unfair to students they don't like. There is a lack of discipline in the school and no consequences for wrong doing. Over all the teachers are good and are doing the best they can with what they have. I would not recomend sending your kids to CCPA.

    CCPA is a very good school and I think that every child should be able to go to a good school environment with the teachers loving them like their own just like CCPA.
