    "Cedar Hill Prep is a nurturing, loving, environment that challenges it's children, yet still promotes their natural enthusiasm in academic success. Those that feel the curriculum is not up to par and call it non-American, fail to appreciate the diversity of the school and the lengths at which teachers go to teach the children in a way that promotes not only academic growth and understanding, but also a continued love of learning. The open lines of communication between faculty/ staff and parents is of utmost importance at the school. Never have I seen such easy access to the Head of School, who not only teaches, but truly loves each child as her own. The parents that bad mouth the school are those that want the school to parent their child, yet are first to complain when their child is held accountable for some wrongdoing. CHP has never to my knowledge disciplined a child in a wrongful manner. Their goal is to educate the child to make the right decision when faced with a difficult situation. The outside vendors that someone referred to CHP using are not negative entities. They are there to aid in the child's overall success."

    "My children have attend the school for 7 years and I am a very involved parent. I've never gotten a "deal" on tuition, however it is worth every penny, as they are getting top rate education at a very reasonable cost. Obviously, a parent has a gripe with the school and chooses to vent via this venue. The school is not for everyone and no one is forced to stay. It is a shame to have such ill-will and report false statements such as "Children are disciplined and chastised in a way that a local psychologist found appalling and dangerous." Teachers are very caring and constantly communicate with parents on every level, unlike many other schools. The children are the product of the caring environment at CHP, as they love their teachers and school. I'd like to know what school allows parents to be involved in their child's class placement? I've never heard class placement being determined by a parent. It is very disappointing greatschools.org posted the misrepresented review."

    "The school thinks itself academically rigorous because of the volume of work and non-US based curriculums. MOST of the teachers are NOT certified. Advertisements say "certified teachers" because there are a few. There are no extracurricular activities at the school. They sometimes hire outside vendors to come in and do things with the children for additional fees. No musical instrument program. No choice of language. No computer curriculum. No sports teams. Children are discouraged from (and often punished for) outside activities. Children are disciplined and chastised in a way that a local psychologist found appalling and dangerous. There is a lack of transparency about school decisions that affect the children like class placement and funding sources. It is a punitive environment for any child who has an expression akin to western culture. Docile, science and tech students will fit in well with the culture. If you want a well rounded child this is not the place. Oh, and not everyone pays tuition. To get SOME children to stay they cut deals in exchange for good PR."

    "I absolutely love Cedar Hill Prep. Our children are engaged in a challenging curriculum and they truly enjoy it. Our teachers are approachable and willing to go the extra mile to keep our children motivated to excel. I wish CHP would expand to the High School level."
