We have four children attending The Community School of Naples. We are delighted with the school, its teachers and leadership. In addition to outstanding facilities (which are greatly improving each year due to the generosity of several local donors), the curriculum and quality of teaching are exceptional. During these rapidly changing times, we believe this school is working hard to remain on the cutting edge of PRE-K through high school education. Our children are privileged to have the opportunity to attend this outstanding school.

This school has been such a drastic improvement from the other private school my child attended in Naples. My child is learning so much more and at a faster rate. The teachers are really involved in caring for the students. Also, the administrators are great and helpful. They prevent bullying and bad things through character education. I think my child is so well-rounded now and totally prepared for life.

My two children, a son and a daughter, have been attending Community School of Naples for one year. The admissions process was so easy and the staff in the Admissions office couldn't be more helpful. I've told all my friends with kids to apply. The kids love it here and it's so much better then their other school. They have so many good friends who also have great parents that we are friends with now. It's such a super school.

I am so happy I enrolled my children at CSN! The admissions process was so easy thanks to the wonderful admissions officers and taking a tour really helped me make my decision. The campus is so beautiful. My kids love their classes and have so much fun every day! I am always so surprised to hear about all of the advanced and interesting things they learn about. They really challenge the students while keeping in mind their individual abilities. I like the small class sizes. I think that is good for the students to have a good teacher-student relationship and also so they have more individual attention if they need help. 5 stars!!! Great job CSN!! I am a happy mom!!

Going to CSN helped me become so prepared for college. I was far ahead of all of my peers and excelled. I made dean's list every semester thanks to CSN! I love going to alumni events too because I get to see my old teachers and friends.
