    "CNS is a great school. Our kids have received individualized instruction since day one. One of the things I love about this school is the huge amount of effort the teachers put into equipping the kids. Our 5 y.o. who hated his previous school blossomed here. He loves it here and has improved drastically in all areas. His self-esteem and confidence soared and his cognitive skills followed. Now he is unstoppable! Our 2nd grader puts older kids she hangs out with to shame. Her problem solving skills are amazing. Her attitude towards learning is great because they make learning fun, all the while making sure that they're teaching the common core standards. We regularly check our kids' performance against grade appropriate standards so we know she's way above her grade level in math, reading, and comprehension, and honestly, in every area. This is a great school. I like that my kids were held accountable for their actions and take pride in their work. We've moved and our kids won't be going here anymore but we all miss CNS. Send your kids here, you won't regret it. It's a very nurturing environment."

    "This is the best school in Southern IL, hands down. My child loves it here! The education is individualized for each student, allowing children to progress or receive help as they need it. I strongly encourage anyone in the So. IL region with a child to consider enrolling them here."

    "More people fleeing disappointed. Be careful what you believe on five star reviews. Current management has not improved CNS and is known for yelling at adults and children. Not what I would want."

    "Carbondale New School offers small classes (max=15) and truly individualized instruction. The teachers get to know each student, how they learn and what they need. Then, they bend over backwards to provide it. My oldest child was at CNS for 6-8th grade. He made honor roll his first quarter in high school largely due to the skills he learned at CNS. My younger child has been there since 2nd grade and will stay for the next 3 and a half years. There is no better place for her to be. There were some issues with administration a few years back, but the current director and board have cleaned up those problems and brought a stability to the school that leaves no distractions from the school's purpose: providing high quality, individualized education for the students. There is also a strong sense of community and shared purpose among most of the families at the school."

    "If you have a brilliant child or your child already has a strong grasp of the fundamentals, your child may do well here. Unfortunately, children attending Pre-K/K at this school do not learn fundamentals. Our child was immediately put into a reading recovery class at public school after leaving, where this child is reading quite well now. Simply was not taught correctly at CNS. Don't let the "kindness and love & logic" talk fool you. Children as young as 4-5 years old have been separated from their classmates all day, grabbed by the arm, left in the hallway crying, marched around the perimeter of the playground, and screamed at by the current director. Thanks so much to those parents who knew this was happening and said nothing! I guess it's ok if it's not your child. So much for CNS being a community. Same child? Zero issues with behavior at public school. None. No more crying now about going to school. Loves the new teacher and school. CNS is not appropriate for children with LD issues. A lot of promises were made, but at the end of the day, services were not provided as promised by all teachers."
