We absolutely love this school and the faculty. My daughter left last year to go to a middle school and has returned this year in 7th grade. Teachers and staff are wonderful! I would recommend this school to anyone interested in a great education and a wonderful family environment!

We are new to the school, but my experience has yet to be positive. The teacher is new and inexperience and has harsh communication skills with both students and parents. In addition, paying 65.00 for a "background check" just to volunteer at the school seems very unreasonable. Our other school ...  Read more

This school should not be listed on the "Great Schools" website. I would not label it as one of the great schools in AZ.

We love this school. I pulled my children from Kyrene as I wasn't happy with the attention or curriculum they were receiving from their prior school. This school offers everything I wanted for my children. Classes are small (25 is the limit), they offer art, music (have two concerts a year), PE and ...  Read more

I have a child in the "Fit 'n Fun" portion (under 3yo) and another who just completed Kindergarten. We have been thrilled with the teacher involvement and the education our son received. It is clear that the teachers (our experience was with both K teachers, aides, and the FnF staff) care about their ...  Read more

Instead of teaching children how to reach the goals of their grade, she softens the workload which gives a false ...  Read more

Both my boys have been going here for a few years not and it seems to be going down hill. Teachers seem to be more worried about what the kids are wearing rather than their education. Now my youngest is told he has to shove his backpack in his desk everyday so it doesn't clutter up the room. His teacher ...  Read more

My husband and I are thoroughly happy with CEE - our daughter is in First Grade and her teacher knows her extremely well even after a couple of months. We think the teacher involvement is exceptional - right down to the fun we had at the Harvest Festival held in Shawnee Park last week - it would have ...  Read more

The Center for Educational Excellence is a jewel of a school. The tone set from the top sends out optimism, intelligence and love so strong that the whole community is infected by it - so positively! CEE's teachers work hard to infuse our children's education with STEM - science, technology engineering ...  Read more

My son and I love this school! My son has been attending this school since he was 2 1/2 years old, and he is now almost 5 years old. The school director is top notch professional and so is everyone that works there. The teachers are very nice, very knowledgeable and very hard-working. Any time my ...  Read more
