    "My child is happy at school, she never complains about going to school and she is energized by her teachers. Learning is something she wants to do. One teacher (aka Professor at CSS) has a commitment to community garden and get the students out in the garden regularly to care for plants and chickens- not a usual opportunity in Manhattan. The school musical, a full length Broadway production, had 15% student participation... Pretty impressive!"

    "The teachers in the school are pretty approachable and will show interest in helping their students if they see the student cares about their class. Most of the teachers will stay after school to help their students on whatever they need."

    "As parents new to the public school system in Manhattan, we are overwhelmingly impressed with the quality of CSS. It is an amazing community we are fortunate to be a part of. The teachers are accessible and they encourage student contact. They are devoted to the students and make learning fun. My daughter appreciates the younger teacher body, is enthusiastic about what she learns, and repeatedly declares that she loves school. She is challenged but not overwhelmingly stressed by her learning opportunities."

    "My daughter is enthusiastic about learning. The learning methods are progressive and innovative. She engages in exercises that encourages her to think and consider. Philosophy challenges her to explore ethical concepts. She finds math interesting, not just plug and chug. Language arts is teaching her writing and social studies is a safe space to discuss current events. There is an emphasis on class unity and supporting one another. The students are expected to be inclusive at all times."

    "CSS has a lot of young teachers with few years of teaching experience. Also, CSS is a fairly new school, which is trying to build up a certain culture and traditions. So, the teachers have to adjust to a lot. With the difficulties of being somewhat underfunded and new, the teachers cope well. There are discrepancies in certain practices which should be uniform, like grading, but overall the teachers care and are available to be worked with."
