Students, parents and teachers at Creative Technologies Academy in Cedar Springs all have something to be proud of—last year’s 4th grade students were named by Bridge Magazine as a 4th grade math Academic Charter State Champion. One hundred percent of students tested received proficiency on the test.

The charter school, located on Pine Street, enrolls 302 students in K-12th grade. The magazine asked School Leader Dan George what the secret to their success is: “We have small class sizes,” explained George. “There are about 20-21 students in elementary-grade classrooms, along with a half-time paraprofessional for every teacher. (They get) lots of individual attention. We have wonderful teachers and a wonderful staff.”

On March 23, the students, who are now 5th graders, received a pizza party to celebrate, and special guests Peter MacGregor, 73rd District Representative, and Cedar Springs Mayor Pro-Tem Christine Fahl were on hand to congratulate the students. MacGregor presented George with a special tribute from the State of Michigan, and Fahl presented him with a “You make a difference award” from the City of Cedar Springs.
