CRES is also home to a SWAS (School Within a School) program, where gifted and talented children receive an education tailored to their abilities. At the center of CRES’s success is their heartfelt principal, Melissa Thoroughman, who leads the exceptional Colts staff through the challenges and opportunities of each year.
