    "I was contacted the first week of school by the school psychologist, who had done a previous evaluation on my daughter, with concerns of her behavior. I immediately contacted the guidance counselor and had a meeting set up by the end of the week. The school has worked very diligently with me to get my daughter what she needs to be successful in school. We now have an IEP, they are trying to gain other services and there is always open communication. My daughters new learning support teacher is wonderful and keeps us updated and I can always reach out to the guidance counselor when necessary. The whole team has been very understanding and supportive. I am very excited for my daughter to be here. She does have an above average intelligence and I believe this school will give her the focus and challenges she needs. The school days are long and she is exhausted at night, but I am ok with my energetic little girl being able to easily fall asleep at 8pm. As for the long bus rides, I am not sure what families expect when this school buses for districts within a 10 mile radius."

    "This school was a bad choice for my family. Teachers refuse to hear your concerns and administration labels you trouble when you provide them with your feedback or suggestions. The last straw was when our children were being builled by older students. They mix buildings with younger kids and older kids together which is highly unacceptable. We pulled our children out in the first two weeks of school and they are much happier in our neighborhood public school."

    "We have been a part of CCS since our son was in 3rd grade when we transferred into here. He is an above average IQ, which is why we came here. He has been challenged and thriving ever since. He is now in the 8th grade. We have found the teachers for the most part to be amazing. Firm but fair. The curriculum is challenging, and they put student with their peers at their same level starting in 4th grade. No other public or parochial school will do that for your child. Spanish is great to learn, it is US 2nd language, press 1 for Spanish!?! Also their music programs are stellar! Pros of Collegium are the curriculum, teachers, and programs. Our son is an athlete, but we challenge him with travel teams to meet those needs. Cons- Some principals (but they are making strides here), long days are hard, and the bussing is LONG. Academically you will find the challenge amazing. I have many friends in other public schools and their children are just not learning like our children. We also have 2 in the Elementary school. Again, equally challenging. Good luck with your choice. I always say, pick the school that is right for your family."

    "My child is struggling in this school. The school administrators refuse to listen to my concerns. My sons teacher recommends to my husband and I to hire a tutor from the school. The tutoring differs from teacher to teacher and can cost up to fifty dollars an hour. The principal is giving us the impression she wants us gone and to seek other options. Our tax dollars are in play and it creates serious flaws to look at. We don t have an option on what police officers come to our house. We don t have an option on who plows the street we live in. We don t have an option on how the public library is run. Reading other reviews and posting our own, its clear the school displays itself as a school of choice. You can not add choice on privatized education on the public s dime. Charter schools are alternative public schools. I feel the need to post our review because we think it is a real shame we allow the right wing to hijack the school choice issue."

    "DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD IF THEY HAVE ANY LEARNING DIFFERENCES! I have one child at CCS since kindergarten and now is in 7th grade. She is in all honors classes and one of or in the top two of her class since I can remember and she loves going to school. My son with learning differences (reading, dyslexia, ADHD, speech and language disorder, etc.) and no behavior /emotional issues hates going to school everyday even with an IEP over 40 pages long. CCS is willing to help the exceptional student to make themselves look better but, the student that needs extra help they do not provide adequate supports. The funds received for special education are not spent for special ed. Look up their year end budget and actual financial reports."
