I loved this school for my kids. They have high academic and behavioral expectations. Teachers and administrators were always responsive to my questions. I always felt my kids were very safe, too

I like this school because it mentally and physically challenges you to do the best you can. It really prepares you for anything in a fun way
CPA's discipline policy is repulsive. A kindergartner getting inschool suspensions for getting out of his seat, throwing a pencil and being disruptive by making the other kids laugh. This type of escalation seems lazy on the administrative end. It's easier for them to just send students to inschool suspensions instead of developing age appropriate behavior modifications that can actually help the child learn social skills and impulse control. Sure the parent hand book spells out how the school disciplines but I had no idea my 5 year old child would be put into such categories listed in the handbook such as being "insubordinate." Disciple should be adapted to fit the age of the child and offense. Not a one size fits all for k-12th graders. The principle was not willing to change anything I suggested and told me it would be "unfair" to expect the teacher to develop a new behavior modification plan to "fit the needs of just one child."
