Following Another Tremendous Outcome

          Arranging time to meet with Kayla Surajnoth (CCS Class of 2013) is like trying to get on the calendar of a business CEO. First, you have to get a moment when she is not already booked with one of the three varsity sports she plays at Westover School. Kayla was chosen for all three varsity teams as a freshman. Then she had to finish her year-end projects and prepare for final exams. Summer scheduling wasn’t easy either, but she did finally come with her mother for a visit.


Kayla’s mom explained that she wanted more for her girls than she thought the public schools would offer and heard about CCS by asking around. Kayla has an older sister who came to CCS first. When Kayla arrived it became clear that she required more attention – much more – because she was such an advanced learner. She was doing multiplication in the second grade.  Kayla credits CCS and its teachers with recognizing her needs and challenging her from the very beginning. In one case she tells a story that the older students/ 5th graders were doing a play or presentation and they needed a narrator. They chose her -- as a 1st grader -- because she could read so well!
