    "CCSC is a gem. My daughter returns for grade 8 this fall. As she finishes her summer reading and gathers school supplies, I am so grateful we found this school for her. Last year was year of academic high points. The teaching was fantastic. Clear expectations. Deep and meaningful work. End of unit assessments that buck stereotypes of charter schools churning out test prep kids. For example, in science write a children's book using 2pieces of evidence from the fossil record to rove the theory of continental drift. Students succeed at this school. No one falls thru the cracks. Every student has an advisor and meets in advisory twice a week. Outstanding support systems. Teachers and staff do not lose any opportunity to connect with students, identify their interests, engage them in school activities or sports and recognize them for their achievements in and out of class. I do not love the intense behavior system but the structure is clear. Kids learn to comply. Unlike our previous school , teachers do not get hijacked re-teaching because of chronic incomplete homework and class work. This is a great school well worth consideration for any family seeking real college preparation."

    "CCSC is a great school. I am so blessed to have my children there. I have two children at CCSC. My son has ADHD and they help me and him. It's not an excuse for adhd student to have bad behavior. My son always have homework detention because of focusing and always forget his homework in the printer. I am mad when he has homework detention , but I understand that help him a little bit. My daughter is different she is very organized and never have an homework detention. I suffer for my son but at the same time the school help me to do the same work that I am doing at home. As a single mom, I am happy to have ccsc helping my children. The only thing I dont like is 2 phones call and 2 emails telling you that your child has a detention. It's depressing. Love you CCSC"

    "I am writing this review as a parent who went through some sort of boot camp with my child. My son isn't wanted at the school so he faces an expulsion. He has ADHD and sometime receives behavior detentions, sometimes he receives hw detention. He has blessed someone for sneezing and got in trouble, missed a step on his homework and received hw detention. A friend of mine has a daughter who received detention for placing her homework in the wrong bin. They suspend and expell students often, the amount of kids in detention daily is unbelieveable and do are the reasons. I never knew how bad it was. I pray that more parents come forth and review this school. I saw a segment on the news about Charter schools and was horrified but it was too late. They have been doing alot of school cleanings lately, I hope this school gets properly cleaned. Our children are our future. They should not be faced with embarassment and low self esteem."

    "CCSC made statewide headlines for its 10th grade MCAS scores this year. They ranked #1 in the state in math with 100% scoring proficient/advanced on the test. Four years ago, many of these same kids scored poorly as seventh graders. In four years and in time to get the attention of good colleges, the kids are all succeeding. Whats more, every graduate from 2009,2010 and 2011 gained admission to college. Almost all of them went to four year schools. Places like Dartmouth and Bryn Mawr and Cornell... UMass, Boston College, Wheaton... This school doesnt get the credit it deserves... Great great school."

    "The teaching is excellent at the school. The kids are safe and happy. I definitely disagree with one of the reviewers. You should visit the school- kids are totally engaged and will even come up to you in the hall or class and let you know what's going on in the school. I'm really impressed with the college acceptance rate and the fact that kids are focused on their future. I'm also really touched by the role of the advisors. Parents get calls home regularly- and not just for bad things. Kids are known well here, and that's really unique."
