    The teachers and staff are so friendly and involved. The curriculum is challenging and I love the IB program and inquiry based learning. Our son has excelled at this school and best of all he likes school! We are so fortunate to have such a great school in the neighborhood.

    My child loves to go to school. What more could I want? The IB curriculum is top-notch and the teachers and administrators are responsive and caring.

    I don't feel welcome in the school as a parent volunteer. The atmosphere of the school is very cold and sterile.

    CFI cares about the character of their students. Beyond academics they structure the classroom and school in general with the social and emotional growth of their students at heart. We could not be happier.
