    "Challenge to Excellence is a school that you should consider looking at before making that final decision of your "school of choice" when it comes to academics and compassion. I love the fact that teachers really care about the needs of their students and expect them to actually DO their work. Our older children thank us for sending them to C2E because they were well prepared for high school. It was the teachers who made them accountable and did go that extra mile to help and encourage them. We have attended private schools in the past and this school offers a great education for not having to pay tuition. The family atmosphere is what my wife and I love about this school! There is no perfect school that comes with all the bells and whistles each family wants, but Challenge to Excellence comes real close to being that perfect school by fitting the needs of all of our children. Our children who have gone on to high school thank you for all that you have done to prepare them for the future. Thank you, C2E, for all that you have done for our family and will continue to do for others. We will miss you when our last ones graduate from 8th grade and move on to high school."

    "Our family really loves this school. We live in CCSD and pulled our kids out because of Common Core and the lack of real classroom work. Our kids are challenged every day now and we don't have to supplement anymore. We love the uniforms as well and the longer days. I'm not crazy about the communication, or lack thereof, between teachers and parents as well as administration and parents. That could be better. I wished administration asked for feedback on teachers."

    "Not a great school is your child has any learning problems. They need more education with their staff in learning lab. Stick with your neighborhood school if your child is on any IEP's. We may leave our kids here, maybe not-on the fence! If your children has no learning issues, it is a great school!"

    "This school provides a challenging ability-based curriculum with involved and caring teachers. Math is taught a grade level above other schools, there is a 1:1 computer device ratio from 3rd - 8th grade and there is strong parent involvement. The dress code, spanish curriculum and sports are all bonuses. Our children love going to school and are exceeding even our expectations. We have never questioned our decision in placing our children at C2E. With a lot of great choices in DCSD, this is definitely a school to consider."
