School Reviews

Our child began CPS in PreK-3. After touring numerous preschools around Central, Zachary and Baton Rouge; the minute we walked onto campus we knew this is where our child belonged. The preschool staff was absolutely wonderful. The Abeka curriculum has placed my child well above the other children in our public school area. Not to mention, we saved a lot of money moving from daycare to CP. The personal attention that the teachers give these kids is well above we could have asked for. We never left! This is our 4th year and could not be any happier. Great School!
