    "My child attended the elementary school and decided to leave due to a lack of science labs, math manipulatives, and reading skills. He was shocked by how many of his peers could not read proficiently. He is now very ill-prepared for public, middle school. I would not recommend this school. It is very expensive for such an average school. He learned far more at the public schools in my area. We are truly sorry for the experience. The staff is kind, but they do not push the kids to succeed."

    "This school has been such a disappointment. Their preschool curriculum compared to other private schools is very weak. Early reading and writing is not encouraged in their pre-k program. The children color and play all day long. And although I feel playtime is important, myself as well as several other parents, agree that their should be some sort of balance. The only reason why my child knows how to write and recognize all of her letters and numbers is because I work with her at home. In addition, the principal supports inappropriate behaviors from her staff, and shows no concern or recognition for issues brought to her by parents. Over half of my daughter's peers in her classroom will not be returning due to similar concerns."

    "My daughter has attended CDS for 6 years now (including the Early Childhood Campus). We have been very pleased with the level of education she has received. There have been a few minor bumps in the road along the way, but I believe that will happen anywhere. I find it interesting that most of the complaints on this site are riddled with typographical errors. It seems to say more about the parents than the school. We are so happy with our daughter's progress scholastically and emotionally. The fact that the teachers and staff focus on reading, writing, arithmetic, RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY resonated with us and the proof is in the results. I would highly recommend CDS!"

    "My daughter (6) has attended the Early Childhood Campus since age three, and she's moving on to CDS' elementary school this year! Her levels of inquiry, problem-solving, communication, creativity, empathy, reading and math increased exponentially in her time with the ECC's staff due, primarily, to their continued emphasis on learning through both structured and unstructured play. Our current American parenting culture's hyper-emphasis on a constant flow of "structured" activity appears, as supported by brain research, to be both counterproductive and, possibly, damaging. I applaud the ECC's commitment to remaining current through their emphasis on experiential, play-based learning for young children. The synopsis below from Scientific American Mind's article "The Serious Need for Play" (2009) reveals data that multiple additional studies support: "Childhood play is crucial for social, emotional and cognitive development. Imaginative and rambunctious free play, as opposed to games or structured activities, is the most essential type. Kids and animals that do not play when they are young may grow into anxious, socially maladjusted adults." BRAVO CDS!!!!"

    "Pleased with the HS program -- excellent environment, love the character focus. Student body not all that diverse, but quality of teachers, curriculum, and environment far surpasses local public high schools. My daughter went to Sickles for her freshman year after going to a superior IB Middle Years school in London, and the difference was incredible. Carrollwood isn't on par with the UK school, but it is constantly improving, and is the closest to the UK experience we could get in Tampa. IB program was a major plus. As this school grows and expands, I think it will become the best education option (for those that can afford it) in Tampa."
