    My two kids have gone here since 2003. I am very impressed with the new school. The reasons why it's not a five star is because of the out front parking idea for the car riders. There is not enough room for all those cars to pick up their children. The cars over flow into the main street. The problem for the car riders from the old school flows to the new school. Only difference is the bus entrance is in the back. Teachers have been great and building is beautiful other then these issues.

    My grandson is a student at Cedarbrook elementary school. I'm impressed with the level of education and the small city feel of the school. The students are encouraged to learn but are taught the importance of discipline in the classroom.
