The school's faculty members were great. They showed much compassion and interest in the students' wellbeing and education. The environment was also cozy and well-suited for learning. I also felt like the education in the school prepared me adequately for college, especially with the amount of workload placed on us. There were definitely intense classes within the high school, but I think they were needed in order to better prepare the students for college. The only aspect I would have changed in the high school is the size and amount of classes. The school is still somewhat novel, which is why there are neither a wide range of classes to take nor a sufficient amount of space for a school trying to teach grades 6-12. I do know that the school is expanding though and hope to continue expanding. With a larger amount of space, this school would be perfect!

My 18 year old daughter attends CCSC and its has been a wonderful experience. It is a charter school in Cambridge. She is a senior and will be graduating soon. CCSC offers a variety of sports and academics. The teachers are caring and there is one on one support. They have school based relationships with MIT and Harvard, where a lot of teachers do internships. They have a discipline system based on merits and demerits. Its could be Saturday detention or 45 min after school detention. Which is called after school support because they want the students to use that time for educational purposes and homework help.
I was an extremely timid and shy person. Keeping to myself, minding my own business, and drawing little to no attention to me seemed like the best solution for me. When I became apart of the Community Charter School of Cambridge I became a three-sport academic athlete in high school. At first, I didn’t entirely know what this meant. As the years passed my life began to gradually change and I began to have others look up to me. I did not quite know how to respond to this. Knowing that there were younger people watching my every move and seeing me as a role model frightened me a bit. Yet, I stepped up to the plate and accepted the role. Doing so, I became the captain of my soccer team. I vividly remember many of my teammates wanting to go against me during scrimmages, for they liked the challenge. They loved having the chance to improve their skills. This school helped me break out of my shell and show others it is ok to be yourself because others may look up to you.
