Bullying is a big concern at Cabot Junior High South. The building is becoming too small for the increasing number of students. The school is most of the time unstructured. Some of the students act immature for their age. It can be a difficult transition from Middle School South with the loss of more structure at CJHS. I would recommened Junior High North over South. They have a bigger, better, and Newer building that they do.

It is very personable. When I enter the building, it feels comfortable and homey. I feel like my child is getting the best education possible by a staff that truly cares about the kids.

The music program is awesome, and by educating the students in band they have an opportunity to earn scholarships for college. Which could be the only way some students can afford to go to college!

As a parent of a 7th grader, I was impressed by the special care that is given to the students by the staff. My son has adapted very well in a short period of time due to the extra attention given by the caring staff at CJHS.

Me and my family recently moved here two months ago. I thought we would ever find a public school that cared about our childrens well-being. They always went to private school, so when we moved we figured we'll try public schooling. Thank God, He directed us here to Cabot.

I also go to one of these cabot schools.This is my first year being at this school and it is a desent school! The good thing about this school is they have a no zero policy. What that means is if you dont turn in somthing that is due that day they will send you to homework lab after school instead of giving you a zero. I conseder this school a good school!!

I love the school, but the principals all need to ease up a little bit. They take their title a little bit too far sometimes. Especially with my child that has ADHD. Last year was awful, this year with some help from the teachers *emails* and an IEP it seems we are doing better but the principals do not take the time to listen or to 'care* they just judge. I could tell this with all 3 of them.
