    "Cora Spencer is a school that has an amazing administrative team and loving, student-centered teachers and staff. Our family has been blessed to attend such a strong school. They encourage parent involvement and invite the community to visit on a regular basis. Each grade level is comprised of highly qualified teachers, research-based lesson plans, and dedicated fine arts and enrichment teachers. Thank you, Cora Spencer, for making our neighborhood proud!"

    "My child was out of state n behind. I received help from the staff. They helped my child significantly. He may not have passed all parts of the star but they did tutor him after identifying him as being at risk. He was considered to be,retained but summer school helped, n he went on. We had a issue of my child n some negative words said to him by another student n the assist principal got back with me quickly on a resolution. He has been very community active with food drives, learning to tie ties, opera attendance an etc. Very culturally diverse. Learning keyboarding skills, apps, art, music were wonderful. I was a great year."

    "Cora Spencer is an outstanding school with great, caring teachers and a leadership team that is deeply involved. Our daughter is in the Gifted and Talented Program and it provides the extra emphasis she needs to be challenged. We look forward to our son starting Kindergarten in the upcoming school year and having our children grow more each year."

    "I transferred my child to this school in mid-year. My child was behind as far as this school goes and the only thing they wanted to do was retain my child! As far as the teacher, she was nice and not sure if she knew how to deal with my child. I communicated with her on a regular basis. The school that my child came from, my child wasn't considered behind. With that said, my child was considered behind at Cora Spencer. Had a meeting with the teacher, principal counselor, they all agreed to retain my kid. Is that the only solution, really? So I asked about summer school surely this school has it, right? They offer only a two week summer school program, only for the kids that are right there on the tip of passing. That's not offering no chance for a child to catch up. So they just throw them to the side to be retained!! I have never seen a school that expect for 6-7 yr olds to act like little soldiers. They assume just because your kid is not a quiet kid, he/she needs to be put on medication. I am not putting my child on medication, do your job! News flash, all kids are not the same!"

    "The only reason to send a child to this school is if you want them to be trainined to be a little robot. I am so dissatisfied with this school this year that I have removed my child from it for next year. It's really sad when a child is bullied by a teacher and nothing is done, despite solid evidence to support the bullying. Other students were allowed to publicly humiliate my child and no one stopped them! I know this because my husband was there to witness it. This principal, while miles better than the last, failed to take care of my child when my child most needed him. The assistant principal is no better. While she pretends to care, all she cares about it blowing smoke to get you off of her to do list. The parents at this school aren't much better. Most parents are cold and unaccepting. If you are not a SAHM, your child will get placed in the worst teachers' class and you will be treated like an outsider. If you have a choice in where your child attends school, don't choose CSE. My child suffers from anxiety and stress headaches, and is now in therapy because of the hard time the teacher gave this year... trust me, nothing is worth that!"
