How long have you been teaching at HCS: 5th year

Favorite color: All of them

Favorite food: Grilled Salmon with steamed veggies and roasted potatoes
What do you like about the school: I love the size! It is perfect for individual instruction with a class setting.

What is one of your favorite memories of being a teacher at HCS: As this is my third year teaching at HCS, everyday is a favorite memory. Every time I teach I see the light bulb lighting as the students learn
about and perform music. What could be better?

Why would you send a student to HCS: The first thing that struck me as I started at HCS was the children are truly children here. Meaning, they are not competing with the outside world to be on Facebook, or have cell phones, or text with friends during school. That is not to say that when they get home they don’t jump back into the social technology culture, but in school , they are in the present and willing to just be kids.

How is being a teacher at HCS special: I am allowed to work closely with ALL the teachers. In larger schools, that isn’t always possible and I would never be able to build on to what happens in the daily classroom. Here at CPES, I can check in often and make sure I am on the same page as the teachers.


Parent Testimonials

Wilkum Family One of the things I appreciate most about HCS is how the kids interact with one another as if it is the most natural thing in the world. Thank you for being great role models for the kids and for encouraging them to be great role models for the younger kids. I know Gregory is a better person because of his interaction with the 'big' kids. It really does make HCS a great place.

Wagner Family We send our children to CPES for many reasons. Small class sizes allow the dedicated teachers at CPES to focus on individual student needs. Academic rigor and Catholic values are a given. Most important to me is the emphasis placed on respect and kindness each day at CPES.

Ditter Family We send our kids to CPES to build strong values in them. The smaller classes allow plenty of opportunities for us as parents to be involved in the school.

Student Testimonials

Owen Jacobs
I like CPES because you get super smart!

Adam Lisowe - past student
As a sophomore I feel I am a lot farther in my classes than students that came from the public school. I was taught very early in my education that I needed to be responsible for getting my work organized and done. I was taught very good study habits that have followed me through my current high school years. Thanks to CPES I am on track to completing several college credits in high school which will help me financially and academically in college. CPES also taught me to be a leader and volunteer in our community, which will help me in years to come when applying for scholarships. CPES laid down a solid foundation for me to build the rest of my education on. I am grateful to my parents for making the decision to send me to CPES because it made a huge difference in my schooling and my life.

I like CPES because I learn about Jesus and all the good things he did.

Mackenzie Ditter
I like it because we get to go to church every week and the teachers are really nice.
