I'm very proud to work at CCCS. The children are a joy to work with. Our school works very hard to instill good citizenship, and it shows when kids walk in my room. Our teachers work together to communicate and create the best possible school experience we can for our students.

My daughter just started at CCCS this year (5th Grade) and wow what a difference already! She has adjusted better and faster than I thought she would. I couldn't be happier with my decision to move her from public to charter and CCCS in particular.

We have been very fortunate to have found this school for our son. He did not start at CCCS but he transferred there several years ago and I witnessed a different approach to his studies in a very brief time. The teachers sparked a new interest in his academics and as a result he is always brimming ...  Read more
