School Reviews

This is an amazing school. I am a recent graduate and I cannot tell you how much this school has changed my life. I attended CCS for more than half my lifetime. Thats crazy. And the crazier thing is that it was the best half of my life. The teachers, the administrators, the staff members, the campus, the students, the trips, everything. From the games we played to the things we were taught... this was the best thing to happen to me. My teachers, my friends, the trips we went on; these are all things that made me a more intelligent, kind, helpful, mature, and well rounded person with more knowledge of the real world. I think that everyone should have the opportunity to attend a school like this, because the experience is a true wonder. I think everyone should send their kids here, and let me tell you, you will not be let down.
