    The responsiveness of the administration has improved over the last several years. The principal at CLS is engaged and accommodating always available and not afraid to ruffle feathers with the union or admin if he feels it will benefit the kids. As far as preparing kids for testing well...that's a political problem that voters and parents have to fix. That is largely out of the control of principals and administrators. We know people who have moved from other nearby districts to take advantage of special services for their kids at CLS. As far as the lack of programs for gifted kids...this is a public school. If you want your kids to learn a foreign language or be able to widen their horizons then go to private school. There are widely varying socio-economic factors at play here. On balance the staff does an excellent job creating a feeling of community and nurturing and to complain about a particular child not being pushed or encouraged misses the point in my opinion. Funds are tight politicians have hamstrung flexibility and many parents are unreasonable in their expectations of public education. I've found a chat with most teachers will result in favorable results.

    Definitely has the sound of a great school and they act like they listen but like the previous to reviewers this is not a school for the gifted challenged artistic or unique. The enrichment and community within the school is disappearing to give way to so-so academic rigor to teach to the test and keep administration in their jobs. For the average kid it is okay for the exceptional kid consider it twice. And in my opinion all kids are unique and exceptional in their own way. Good luck with the administration agreeing with that philosophy.

    involved and committed teachers make this school strong. The community is also active and engaged in making a positive learning experience for the children. The school does NOT stream kids or offer enrichment programs which builds an inclusive environment but can leave the more able students less challenged. Rhinebeck has TONS of activity options outside of school though (music theater sports 4H art science etc) and so the learning opportunities can be easily supplemented if parents desire.

    For most the school is probably fine. However should your child have an issue be aware the administration and school district are ineffective and worse unresponsive.
