  • Child attended 3rd grade CBG last year. What a wonderful experience, especially coming from very small class sizes in a private school. I didn't feel like the learning was sacrificed despite the much larger class size. THe teacher was wonderful and really inspired the kids and made learning fun. I wish I could take him with us to 4th grade, but I look forward to the great staff and new teacher this school year.
