    "I have been in this school for 6 years (my oldest just completed 7th grade). I have to say that each year has been better than the previous one. The level of education here is incredible. This is clearly demonstrated by the tests/FCATs/competitions that the school participates in each year. There is a reason that this school is ranked so high. Apart from exceptional FCAT scores due to the exceptional and caring teachers, they are the reigning Geography Bee champions, several students were recognized for SAT performances in math and reading via the Duke TIP program, the PE coach won a national award, I could go on and on - but above all the young gentlemen and ladies feel safe, happy and confident - the proof is in the pudding. Seeing these children become young teens teeming with confidence, class and perfect manners both in and out of school while excelling in academics as well as extracurricular activities is all that counts and this school helps them do just that. As a parent that is all I ask for and expect."

    "My child was on Pre-K (2011-2012) in this school (only one class, 20 kids, 58 on the lottery!) Mi 5 year old kid now can read and write like a kinder boy(or more), count to 100, he can do basics additions and subtractions up to 10, and more important, he has learned how to be a child socially responsible. But (maybe)we have to move, and he will have to go to another school. I am VERY SAD to leave such a good school. Good luck, teachers!"

    "this school is horrible. i HAD to leave in 4th grade, (while this school ends in 8th including the middle campus). the lunches are normally a red liquid with some white pads or a good thing like a pack of mini cheeseburgers. im going to wesley matthews elementary for 2012-2013 school year. (5th grade) the reason i hate this school so much is that they dont encourage kids like they should. for example: when i was in second grade, i made my AR goal (a certain number of points you have to make by reading books and taking tests.) so i told my teacher, "i made my goal!" and she just blabbered "good for you. BACK TO WORK!!!!" the one and only teacher that is good is mrs. a.r. martinez. BEST TEACHER EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i highly don't reccomend this school."

    "The school offers a decent education, but fails several areas. I am a parent of two children (one still there, one who left). Oversized class-counts. At least one class has more than the law allows (over 20 instead of 18). The principal plays with the number, but this does not change it: they are violating the law. The Principal is rude and mean. She yells at parents, even when they are supporting the school in PTA events. Almost no field trips. Your child will have friends at other schools who go out often, but not your child if you are at CGE. Do not go to complain, because she holds grudges. Does she keep this job because her husband is a lobbyist at the school board? There is NO emphasis on science education except for a once a year science fair. Math education is very bad. The school puts energy into reading, which is great, but it seems very little in math. There are not any electronic resources, but there are several for reading. As a result, my older child struggled with his first weeks in middle school, but we hired a tutor, and he later placed up a grade level. If you have choices, consider them. For middle school- LEAVE. There are many better options."
