This school is amazing. They care about the child's social and emotional development as well as acedemic achievement. My son is thriving there and is genuinely developing a love for learning!

CFCI has for years been the top school for students K-8. The dedication to the students growth as thinkers is without compare. Over the last couple of years the administration has taken a turn for the worst firing the best teachers and losing focus of the mission but the quality teachers and parents that remain are holding on tightly to the mission of the school.
