    "My daughter's experience here has varied wildly for the last two years. We came to CFT at the beginning of 1st grade and it was a hard, long year for her. Her 1st grade teacher was disinterested and would tell us that expectations weren't high because it was just "first grade." Then we would get a report card saying our daughter was lacking in certain areas like turning in her homework even though the teacher had just told us it wasn't that important. When we tried to work with the teacher in coming up with a plan to help our daughter improve the teacher didn't do the things she agreed she would do to help. It was hard for my child as she was getting mixed signals from her parents and her disinterested teacher. But with second grade and we are just blown away! My child's homeroom teacher and reading teacher have gone above and beyond and truly do care about my daughter's success. She has improved markedly with dedication from all of us working together to rid her of the bad habits she was allowed to learn in first grade. "One bad apple can spoil the bunch" really applies here. We almost left CFT for private school due to our 1st grade experience. I am so glad we stuck it out."

    "This school has some amazing teachers. It is so inviting to see the art up on the bulletin boards as you walk in. I like to see a school remember that art is just as important as core curriculum."

    "My two kids currently attend CFT. If the school is measured by the dedication and quality of its teachers, CFT is tops. There has been some turnover in the administration (3 principals in my son's first three years there) but the current principal (heading in to year 3) is wonderful and it seems like she'll be around for a long while. Parent community is moderately active, monthly family events are well attended. A high percentage (60%, I think) of students are eligible for free and reduced lunch so we are a Title I school and get extra funding for that."

    "Both of kids loved CFT. Our daughter still attends and loves her teachers. The principal is amazing. This is her second year at our school. Only thing lacking is more patent involvement. It's always the same parents doing all the work on events that benefit the kids and their is very little participation in the PSO. Would love to see more help from other families."

    "Our kids love to go to CFT elementary school. I am amazed how much they learn there each day. What I personally like about this school is that teachers have high expectations of their students. Our kids are never bored in school."
