Open Quote Honestly everyone, this school is terrible. It used to be something worth scoffing at, now it is full of teachers who bully their students, an abused punishment system, and inconsiderate staff.

I have had 4 kids go through this school, three of them attended from kindergarten to eight grade. It is safe to say that I know a lot about this school.

Past the front desk and deep in the walls of the school, there are several teachers who are absolutely ignorant and oblivious to anything that they didn't think up them selves. They will always act without any sort of basis that is logical besides "I thought", or I "suspected". If any student gives an opinion, or simply thinks for them self, they are threatened to receive a CAP (the punishment system at this school).

Bottom line everyone, so long as Mrs. Mahan is of any leadership position in this school, and as long as the teachers constantly shut down the thinking process of the students, you do not want to put your children here. The words "charter school" is of no meaning here. You are so much better off putting your students somewhere that ACTUALLY prepares your kids for the future. This place, is all talk. Close Quote

Open Quote I have 3 children that attend CCA. Having the opportunity for my kids to attend this school has been an absolute blessing! This school should be ranked one of the top 5 in the whole country. The quality of the education that my kids have been receiving is priceless! I couldn't ask for better teachers and staff. Mrs. Leger is doing a great job as director and every teacher we have had has been amazing! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
