This school continues to amaze me. We have been here for 5 years now, and it gets better and better each year. The hands on learning with projects keep our kids engaged and fully loving going to school each day. Any issues that arise are quickly handled and the teachers genuinely care for each child as their own. The director always greets us when she sees us, and really every teacher does too, whether they have taught our kids or not. The new school building will be open for next school year and I just know this great school with only continue to improve when we are in our permanent home.

My children attend CCS. They've made wonderful process at CCS. My children learn a lot on a daily basis because of the hands on/project base experience. I love the low student teacher ratio. Within the last year or so the school has add an band program. The band sounds great! Everyone at CCS is like family!

This school is a great school my children have made significant progress here. They are a research based hands on approach with low student teacher ratio. However, , the school has a struggle to retain its teachers from year to year. Administration can be the reason this school continues to lose our good teachers to other school districts. Hope they will consider evaluating their leadership for the coming year.

What a great school. It is nice to know that there are now choices for schools in Franklin County. My son is in 3rd grade and we absolutly love Crosscreek Charter School (used to be called A Child's Garden.) CCS is a non traditional school environment. The children learn through projects and true experience. There is minimal teacher lecture and "skill and drill" teaching. Through a great deal of parent involvment and a family atmosphere, we really feel like part of a community and our son has developed into a very curious little boy. We could not be any happier.
