    Having grown up in a Catholic home I wanted to instill these values in my child by having my child attend a Catholic school. Unfortunatly after having spend a lot of my hard earned money and time searching. I am not pleased by any means with this school. Reading the previous posts I agree with a lot of it(technology is up to date but they pay more attention to updating that then other issues; parents are VERY clicky gossiping in the school yard or making sure it is only their child who participates in the sports team; rude office staff; consistently asking for donations every month it is something new; teachers giving too much homework with no direction on the assignments; no lesson plans followed in classroom; telling you that maybe your child doesn't belong in this school because they are not getting 4.0 then blaming the parent for lack of help at home I could go on and on.) My child is beyond unhappy right now and will not be attending next year if changes are not made.

    This school is great if you are above grade level. They cater to one type of child...bright. They have high expectations which is GREAT but what about those kids who need a little extra help. If your child is not doing well academically they will suggest you look for tutoring elsewhere which cost more $$. They are up to date on technology it seems but yet some teachers still do not have web pages where a parent can go to look for projects and assignments. And do not let me get started on HOMEWORK!!! They give a lot! Don't they know that not all parents are wealthy and therefore some of us still have to work make dinner showers extra curricular activities and try to spend some family time together. My child is doing about 6 hours of school a day plus another 3-4 hours of homework. But like I said if your child is above grade level and you have a nanny to do homework with your child then you will like this school just fine.

    Im a student. Ive been attending this school since kindergarten and i am currently in the 7th grade. Overall its a very good school and the technology is very advanced. The expectations are really high though and its really hard to get a 4.0

    This school could really use a friendly staff. The front office greets you with rudeness and silence. Adults who are now in their 30's that were CCS students are shocked to know that the office staff is still there and have nothing nice to say about one individual. They say she was just as rude and mean back when they were in school. Parents are nickled and dimed for every little thing. Parents who put a lot of effort and time into the school are not appreciated and truly mistreated. Homework time is so overwhelming and at times ridiculous. The school is so far gone with technology that they fail to realize what this technology is doing to our kids. Some of the teachers yell to much at the kids and embarrass them in front of their peers. The class size is too big considering it is a private school and good money is being paid for these children.

    This school is just horrible. They keep spending their money on new technology and it isn't helping my child at all! They yell at my kid for having an imagination and tell him he is a slacker! ;( I decided to transfer him to St. Brenden's! At least their church is usable now!

    After experiencing both public as well other private school educational systems I truly believe that CCS is a RARE find in this day and age. The faculty and staff are constantly striving to improve the overall experience of every student. Our advancements in technology including iPADs a Mac lab lcd projectors interactive whiteboards & remote controls as well as the recent addition of document cameras have transformed the way in which we are able to educate our students. We use a plethora of methods to teach and provide individualized attention to our students in ALL subjects. The curriculum is rigorous and has resulted in the success of our students in high school and beyond. We are now in the process of fundraising for a state of the art science lab and art room. With the careful and responsible planning of our principal we have been able to set goals and achieve them. Above all else we are a family and a diverse community built on faith. It is truly a blessing to be a part of such a special place.

    The principal Ms. Kipp actually spent a portion of the fundraising money on her niece's birthday party. Now I believe that is clearly embezzlement and against Catholic values. Also this school's English program for the upper grades focuses too much on News Flash 5 and Current Events. Don't get me wrong; I love my country; however News Flash 5 and Current Events the last time I checked is not ENGLISH. How are the students supposed to be prepared for the future if they lack basic grammar foundations.

    There's one teacher in after school that yells at kids and a classroom teacher that forces her smile after she says something mean and condescending. I'm saying that hopefully the principal would correct them or hire somebody else. I'm giving the school five stars inspite of those teachers that are not kind and positive because over all the school is great academics safety and for the catholic education.

    CCS has excellent students families and office staff. Some teachers are great even inspirational. Other teachers yell at the kids too much for my liking. I am taking my kids to another school.

    My son is the 11th member of my family to attend Cathedral Chapel. We keep coming back because of the family atmosphere the diversity of the student body the faculty and the high standards and academics that they keep improving upon. The school was recently accredited for 6 years the longest possible term. We love CCS and so will you.

    I love Cathedral Chapel School because even though it's small it's like another family other than your own. You have friends that have been with you forever and you will never forget them. You also find out how to build a good character and a basic way to study. CCS is also a loving school where the teachers are friendly and you can connect with them. If you go to CCS you will have a great experience whether or not you have ups and downs my life at CCS has been great! Go CCS. Hope you win!
