Welcome to CCL!

Dear Parents and Guardians,


We are thrilled to welcome you to the school year! We are incredibly proud of our
school's commitment to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment where gifted students
can thrive and reach their full potential.
Our school is distinguished by its specialized gifted curriculum, which is designed to challenge
and engage our students' unique intellectual abilities and interests. Our dedicated teachers work
closely with each student to create a curriculum that is both rigorous and relevant, ensuring that
our students are constantly learning and growing.
We are also proud to boast a highly educated and experienced staff. Our teachers are certified
in gifted education with most holding a master's degree and many with National Board
Certification. They are passionate about gifted education and committed to providing our
students with the support they need to succeed. To further support our gifted students, we have
two full-time gifted counselors on staff. Our counselors provide individual and group counseling
to help students with academic, social, and emotional challenges.
One of the things that makes our school truly special is our commitment to student-centered
learning. We believe that our students' interests and passions should drive the learning process.
Our teachers incorporate student input into unit design and encourage students to take
ownership of their own education. This approach fosters a sense of excitement in our students,
leading to deeper learning and greater engagement.
We are excited to partner with you to make this year a success for your child. Please feel free to
contact us at any time with questions or concerns. We are here to support you and your child
every step of the way.
Sincerely,

Dr. Dennis Rhodes                                                                      Dr. Paul Husch
