    "Way to go Cypress Ridge! Our 3rd and 4th grade students just took 1st and 2nd place respectively at the Lake County STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Bowl. Our school-wide focus on the integration of STEM is really paying off with noticable gains in problem solving, cooperative teamwork, and critical thinking. It is a privilege to be able to work with such outstanding students. Thank you to our new principal for supporting this effort."

    "Thanks to the 'common core' and a new principal, this school isn't the 'best' anymore. I fear for the kids when the principal does not understand basic child development in that children NEED recess. Free play is integral to the proper development of children. PE does not equal free play. In addition, thanks to the common core, teachers have no time to actually instill a love of learning in students. I had to laugh at the other parent below who calls this place militant. I call it the 'internment camp' and actually feel sorry for my poor child because they get no enjoyment from school. It's all about the standardized tests. Sad!"

    "CRES is a wonderful magnet STEM school full of very dedicated and very experienced teachers. I am pleased to say that the new principal is making very positive forward- thinking decisions especially concerning technology. I defiinitely saw the bar raised at this years STEM night. I would like to see better internal communication not only between grade levels for the SAIL program, but also between school and after school activities to reduce schedule conflicts. Better coordination between teachers and the after school care is an important issue that I would like to see addressed in the upcoming months. Parent involvement continues to be a key factor in helping the students succeed in this A rated school."

    "We used to LOVE CRES, until this year.... They hired a new principal who doesn't like children. Runs things very militant, like it's some sort of correctional facility. He took away recess and the kids are not allowed to eat lunch with their friends. They have to sit in a single file line alphabetically! Absolutely NO reason why children shouldn't be allowed to eat lunch with their friends."
