  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 10, 2006
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • As a parent, I love Challenge Charter School. As a student, my daughter also loves CCS. This is her third year, and we have had a positive experience with each grade and teacher. The Millers are committed to what counts - the education, safety, and care of their students. I chose the school based on its CORE Knowledge curriculum, size and safety, and teacher credentials. The only drawback is the lack of extracurricular activities, library, and minimal arts. However, the quality of education and the positive environment MORE than make up for any of the extras that might be found in bigger, public schools. We are so pleased to have found this school and know our daughter will stay for the duration of her elementary career. Thank you Millers!
