I looked long and hard at private schools before deciding to send my now 5th-grade son to Community.

My son is in his last months of kindergarten at this school. Although we don't have many years to review it, overall our experience here has been excellent.

Was not impressed with Kindergarten at Community. The teacher quickly chose favorites and shipped kids that she didn't favor out of the classroom whenever she got a chance. Principal was not helpful, and response from the school was painfully slow on all levels (responding to email weeks later or not ...  Read more

teachers are great, lots of extra curricular, principle is pretty concerned about the kids

I wouldn't recommend it if your child is weak in math. Math Investigations can be a confusing program for some children (and parents). Traditional math instruction is left to the parents. Having a weak foundation, both of my children needed tutoring in math when they entered middle school. Otherwise, ...  Read more
