But the strong sense of community that builds respect for others inside and outside the school is what sets it apart for us.

We look forward to being a part of this family for a long time. Read less

I went to this school for 5 years, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The staff is really welcoming, and the academics are rigorous. They teach extremely good morales at CES, which definately comes in handy later in life. I have met some of my best friends through this school, HOWEVER,

Also, administration isn't as good as it used to be. A few members of the staff were unqualified when I went there, but I believe they have fixed this problem since then. The sports are programs are good, not great, but good. So overall, it's going to need some work, but in time, it will once again become the great CES we all knew and loved. Read less
