    "My Kids love CRE! It is a great school and the teachers, aides, and administration truly care about kids. My students love the outdoor habitat and PE. My kids are very sad that Mrs. Ursetta is leaving at the end of the school year. We have loved the last three years that we have been at Castle Rock Elementary."

    "Nightmare. Bullying is rampant at this school. There is no accountability, we have friends that have been going through a nightmare, and we finally see it manifesting in front of our eyes. The Principal has no reason to correct the issues because her supervisors are haphazardly trying to keep the concerns out of the public eye. Reading the news on Douglas County Schools it is clear that the Superintendent has many other lawsuits, etc., to worry about, so this is a mere "headache". Instead of helping, the school institutes new programs, and shifts the blame. The vast majority of the teachers and staff are superior and do far more to help then the principal. Good teachers are gone, positions cut and filled by less experienced, more cost effective teachers. Since there are half the children there used to be, do as others have done and look elsewhere. The list of issues and concerns brought to this administration are lengthy and there is no solution, other than put up a false fa ade that they are doing everything to make the school appear "safe", which it is not."

    "What an amazing school! The minute I walked in the front door we felt welcomed! The front office staff greeted us with with such warmth and the teachers are very friendly too. My kids love to go to school! They are very excited about PBL and the schools unique habitat! From the great administration to the friendly classroom aids, I can't say enough good things about this school! You can tell that they truly care and love children there!"

    "CRE is a fantastic school! They are doing project based learning and my student loves it! The school does a great job of communicating with parents and my kids love going to school. The teachers are top notch. They treat the kids like they are their own."

    "Administration has no school pride. I cannot complain too much because the teachers we had were really nice people but there is no consistency in the curriculum from different classes in the same grade. Some had almost an hour of homework every night and others had a little bit every month. The playgrounds are always full of trash even after comments from parents. I hated to see birds outside eating plastic on an almost daily basis. To me it seems like the administration is only there because they are paid to be and they think teaching at a DCSD school makes them look good. I had one child attend Lewis Palmer Elementary School for 6 years and it was a dream compared to this. (Can't say enough good things about LPES!) I feel that if I have my two younger children attend CRE any longer they will never have the ability to reach their full potential. I am going to do everything I can to change schools before next year."
