    "I find some of these reviews very appalling. To say that the lower level has issues with it being a fire hazard and having few exits is wildly inaccurate. The fire department would never allow schools to teach children in an environment that was unsafe. I am an alumni of the school and my daughter recently began attending the school as well. During the open house, we were given a tour of the building in its entirety including the lower level so that people would be well aware of the space their children would be in if they continued through the higher grades. Also, the staff has always been very professional and welcoming to my family. Even when I had financial issues, the administration worked with me and still bent over backwards to help my child. The reputation of the school reaches far and wide to independent schools in NYC and many others. I am more than pleased with the academics and the culture of the school. CCGC offers an amazing and well-rounded education that I would not be able to receive for such a low tuition fee anywhere else. I would hope that readers can distinguish between actual reviews and disgruntled folks who hold a grudge after one bad experience."

    "Cambria School For the Gifted is an Excellent School. My daughter attended the school from Kindergarten through 6th Grade and has gotten a thorough and diverse education. It is interesting to note how many parents who have taken their children to other schools, only to return, much more appreciative of the quality of the education and environment. Even those who have had children get accepted to much more expensive private schools still keep their siblings in the school. It is an excellent value, and I am thankful that they established a middle school; Cambria School of Excellence, that appears to be following the Cambria tradition of excellence!"

    "UNPROFESSIONAL!!! There is no better word to describe the attitude of the staff, teachers and director of this school. Terrible experience!!! What kind of adults of tomorrow are they training with this kind of attitude and total absence of professionalism? Our children are greatly influenced by their teachers and other staff members of their school. ABSOLUTELY NO TO THIS KIND OF INFLUENCE ON MY CHILDREN!!! This school is simply GHETTO!!! I have seen teachers leaving the young children alone in the classroom to go buy breakfast. WOW!!! I have heard a teacher belittling a 3-y-o girl who asked her to help her wash her hands."

    "For us, price was not an issue as our child's prior school was about $1,300.00 a month. We were attracted by all the good reports we heard about the Academics. However, we give zero for everything else. Administration is completely disorganized and unprofessional. They lost at least one of our child's personal items every week. There is definitely a double standard and a lot of biais and politics. The director would say one thing and the admission counselor and some of the teachers would do something else. If you ask to speak with the director, they will make sure it does not happen and make their own decision. The staff is very unprofessional. The reality is totally different from what you hear about the school. We are very disapppointed and taking our child out."

    "I went to this school from maybe 2000 for Pre-K through 4 grade in 2005 I was at this school for majority of my life so far. I loved it there, It was so well-rounded culturally every month was a different theme of country etc. But one thing I did not like was the arts program. They had everything except for visual arts. The friendships I made there were awesome I am still friends with a lot of my classmates. The kids there are all different some are nice and some are not but that's depends of the child. I academics were very hard but great. The education has to be at least a grade level higher than most schools nation wide. I was taking notes in kindergarden! Definitely invest in this school... I see the tuition gone up, but that doesn't change the education I hope."
