    My son has attended this school since it's opening. (Prior to attending CCSE he was in a private school.) I love CCSE because it is a family atmosphere with a Principle that knows every child by name and truly cares about his students. The staff is excellent and you can tell they have a passion for teaching. The discipline is excellent and there is a zero tolerance when it comes to bullying.

    My son attended this school last year (2009-2010). Because of the drive I put him a in new school this year. This was a mistake. The new school I chose which was supposed to be wonderful was a chaotic mess. He came home in tears every day. I withdrew him and put him back in CCSE. He came home his first day absolutely beaming and said "Mom! It was so calm!" I don't intend to send him anywhere else. CCSE is an excellent school.

    So far I've found the teachers to be qualified and very communicative with the parents. It's only 5 days into the school year and we've had some difficulties with the 'school leader' (who has a sign hanging outside his office saying 'school principal'). Hopefully he won't make this environment one of a power struggle due to his own insecurities and need to control. Apparently he can and does change policy whenever he wants to.

    This school is in it's first year and is thriving. With committed administration and staff the students are excelling! Great job!
