    "My kids were excited to go to this school! But once they got in! The school was nothing like what they said it would be! They don't have good IEP's they don't have small classes and both my kids started failing! And they didn't do anything to help them but give me the run around! So I pulled them out after me and my mom spent over $300.00 in school supplies that they kept and won't give them back! I also know other parents that are pulling there kids out as well! Cause of the same stuff and there kids coming home with foul language and talking about in appropriate subjects like body parts and teachers allowing it! I am so greatful I pulled my kids out they are doing much better and not falling behind now I would never recommend this school to anyone at all! And one teacher is not qualified to teach but they still allow it!"

    "This is the absolute worst school I have ever encountered. The teacher to student ratio for kindergarten is ridiculous, 34-1. And they have individuals who are teaching classes who have no college education at all. The school caters to the underprivileged yet doesn't provide lunch or breakfast for their students, and they will not allow ANY volunteers at all. That screams of trying to hide something. And the administration is a joke. Terrible, terrible school. I wouldn't send my dog here. I would have given it no stars if I could have. Parents, do NOT send your kids here."

    "This school is horrible thee are some friendly staff but a lot of unfriendly staff including the principal. My child's teacher yells at the children and cusses at them and even the principal still backed up their teacher knowing what they do. They choose favorites at the school some kids can get away with anything even if it's not allowed in the handbook where others are singled out and threatened to be expelled for doing what the favorites do. My child loves the horsemanship and zoo lab they have and some of the activities but is afraid to go to school because of the way her teacher and other staff there treat her including the principal and due to recent events I am now having to go to the school board to report the staff for bullying my child as well as other children I would never recommend this school to anyone they need a completely new staff starting with the principal and my daughters teacher no teacher should be allowed to threaten kids, yell at them, and cuss at them it is ridiculous. Parents re not a Lowed to even visit there children or be involved in the school what kind of school outlaws parents the kind who have something to hide and are doing bad things to the kids."

    "I agree that this is not a good school, parents do your research, visit the school without letting them know your going. I would not send my children there."

    "I have attended CGCS from my 8th grade year til I graduated in 2011 from high school, a year early than I would have a a normal high school. They have amazing programs such as Horsemanship, Zoolab, the 3 week trips they take, Steele Drums, and many more. In horsemanship, everybody gets to learn about farm like animals such as alpacas, llamas, horses, sheep and more. While in horsemanship you learn how to feed the animals and take care of them. Zoolab has 4 different rooms in the building labeled: "Mammals", "Reptiles", "Amphibians" and "Quarantine" . They also have an insect corner and a wave pool with starfish. Their learning is primarily hands-on. The 3 week trips they take are amazing. They start with kids in 4th grade up to high school. The 3 week trips are to main locations in the US such as Washington DC, Yellowstone, Chicago, and New England. Their other big trips go out of the country to Belize and Costa Rica. High school here they give you the option of graduating in 3 yrs or the standard 4 yrs. They have great opportunities and events that go on here. I would say if you are looking for a traditional school this is not it but there are many GREAT opportunities here."
