Love Cornerstone Charter! The school itself is spacious, new, clean and inviting. The student body is connected and inclusive, with ample opportunities for students to connect and interact in a positive way. The curriculum is tough, but the class sizes are small enough where the teachers can give individual attention to those who need it. The admins are visible and involved, and the PTO is active and thriving. Love the parental involvement, and that Cornerstone is a school that values that, along with teaching core principals and values to our children, as part of their overall education.

Cornerstone entered their brand new, top notch facility August 2016. It will grow to be a K-12 school in 2018/2019. Pillars include rigorous academics,character education and parental involvement. Teachers are dedicated, engaging and the turnover is low. Academics are rigorous with the addition of Honors and AP classes for each of the high school grades added, a move-up math program and challenging domains & vocabulary for elementary students in social studies and science. Highly active PTO with lots of opportunities for volunteering to support students, teachers/staff and a wonderful sense of "family" with school wide assemblies, activities and events! Our school places an emphasis on leadership through character education lessons and activities, volunteer opportunities in and outside of school and through our expanding athletic program.
I have been attending Cornerstone for 3 years and I believe I have learned a lot about becoming a leader and how by using my leadership qualities that I've learned about at Cornerstone can help people people in the world. They are very wonderful at helping their students achieve higher levels of education but they also help their students find their leadership styles to prepare for college and the real world. By Cornerstone helping me find my Leadership styles and learning styles, I have become a better person, a better leader, and I've gained lots of knowledge that will help me throughout college and life.
