    The teachers get to know the students and truly care about their progress.

    All three of my children attend CPCS; two are in the high school. They are getting a great education - excellent teachers small classes lots of opportunities to try new things. Because the school is small there aren't as many extracurricular or sports options as at a large school but they can try out anything they want. It's a great nurturing place for them to learn and grow.
