CCAA is a small high/middle school compared to most, but that’s where its charm comes from. Most students, if not all, get to know each other and are all open and friendly to one another, allowing for a close-knit community. As the name implies, the arts are very relevant in all classes as well allowing for creativity and learning to mix all the time!

Most teachers at this school are engaged in the topics they teach. The history teacher and our newest English teacher feel strongly about the things they teach. The history teacher, Mrs. Wilson, was the first teacher that ever caught my interest in history. Every other teacher before did not have passion for the subject, where on the other hand, Mrs. Wilson enjoys teaching history more than anything else. When the teacher enjoys what they teach, the students are more engaged as welll. Mrs. Lovejoy, the newest English teacher is the same way. Both of the science teachers enjoy their subjects and understand them well, but appear to lack the skills to teach certain aspects of their subjects. Our math teachers have the same issue; they are passionate about what they teach, but lack many explanation skills students need.
I love CCAA because of how small the student population is. It is so nice to be so connected to everyone in your class and it has such a nice family feel. I also like, since its so small, how the teachers are so involved and they really know their students. I wish that since we are such an arts integrated school that we had more funding for these departments. Recently, our choir teacher was moved to another school and our band teacher had to start teaching choir as well. Not only do I feel bad for the teachers I also feel for the students who had an influential choir teacher taken away from them. It would also be nice if our school looked more like an arts school. We do have some murals around the school but it would look so much better if we could paint the walls and not have to worry about it being removed one day.
