CCS Is an amazing school! One of the comments I just read on here says that they use Common Core as the curriculum, and that is not correct. CCS uses Core Knowledge Curriculum. Common Core is the Arizona State standard that all schools have to comply with. It gets confusing because they both have the ...  Read more

Everyone has their own opinion, but before you make statements make sure you are telling the truth. First of all CCS teaches Core Knowledge which is not to be confused with Common Core. Reading and Math are a top priority at this school. Just today I volunteered in my son's class and guess what, I helped ...  Read more

This school has really gone down hill. First this school uses Common Core, do not be confused into thinking they use anything other than the standard public school program. All the tenured teachers have left. I would say one student a month transfers to another school. No language, no music. Extremely ...  Read more

This school is horrible. 3 out of 4 people on the "board" are mom, dad and daughter, Wendy. Wendy is also the principal! Don't waste taxpayer money with this school.

I can t express enough how Amazing CCS has been for my child and our family.

Unfortunately, they do ...  Read more

RAINY DAYS. when it rains kids wait outside with no shelter. I have picked my young kids soaked completely. The school has no shelters but that is no reason to expose kids to direct rain. OPTIONS???????? Maybe kids can wait in their classes for their parents to pick them up. Or wait in the cafeteria. ...  Read more

I miss Challenge Charter School. We moved out of the city and are at another 10 rated School. Challenge Charter School had done so much more for my kids. They mapped out everything that kept me and my kids and me engaged at all times. The staff at Challenge Charter School is so much more organized ...  Read more
