CTA Independence is a great school. Our daughter attends kindergarten and she absolutely loves it here. Her teacher Miss Werden is wonderful. She goes out of her way to make sure the students are learning even during their breaks. Thank you CTA for teaching our kids the way they should be taught!!!

We moved to this neighborhood specifically for this school. We can honestly say that we are not disappointed! Our child is in Mrs Hernandez's class. She is very nice and an exceptional teacher! Although this school teaches at a higher level, our son loves to learn at this school.

A great school! The teachers are professional. The students are well-behaved and eager to do their best in the classroom. I highly recommend this school to anyone that wants their child challenged academically.
