Both of my children attended Cranberry and I've never had one issue. Ms. Daniels is amazing, as are all the staff. Very proud that my children were able to attend this wonderful school. A++++
First of all I'd like to point out that Cranberry has over 120 kids in an ESE program. Children assigned to an ESE program are pushed to get an IEP- this gives the school money that is suppose to be used to provide support for these children, with over 120 kids in the ESE program at Cranberry, the program should be getting an incredible amount of money to use for their education. They failed to follow through on the ESE set in place. The Principle moved my child to an ESE classroom without first notifying us, she told me that she put my young child into an "older" ESE program to see how he handles being with the older kids. She also told me there was no hope in moving my child to a regular classroom because as she put it "teachers talk about problem kids, nobody is gonna want to have this student in their classroom" in addition to this she told me that my child really had no ailment and was capable of making the "right choices" and that my child was just out to "gain attention" because he/she didn't get their way. Ms. McCloud lacks the understanding of how to treat children with disabilities and social issues. I do not recommend this school.
We love this school! The stuff is awesome. It might not be the easiest school but its one of the best!
School is outstanding. My daughter is in the first grade there and never has she taken so much interest. Love how they make sure to keep the parents involved as much as possible with all the events they have. Definitely a grade A in my book!
