  • Reviewed by Former Student on September 18, 2008
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Cornerstone is an excelent school with outstanding teachers and and well-behaved students. The teacher to student ratio is great and all of the teachers care about each of their students and do everything they can to help them succeed. All of the parents are highly involved in the school. As a former student, now in college, I can say without any doubt that Cornerstone helps prepare students for college and the outside world.
    The facilites are safe and someone is always monitering the students while on the playground.
    The homework level is higher than most schools, but that is due to the high standards set at Cornerstone. Most students complain, but still get the work done on time.
    The sports program is limited by the schools small size, but still has the ability to compete with most of the public schools in the area.
