Cedarville High School1

This school has so much potential but the administration is too far out of touch. There are some great teachers on campus but the supt. And principal have an agenda that prevents positive outcomes. There is a huge drug problem that has been allowed to grow out of control. There is no incentive to excellent and school spirit is nonexistent. If you can go to a nearby school like Alma. Get there asap.
This school has uneducated, unqualified math teachers. None of them have an educational math certified degree. Instead they entered the nontraditional program, which allows anyone with a bachelors in anything to start teaching your child. So the children are their guinea pigs, experimental until they take a few weekend classes & take a state test to get "certified." Anyone in the NT program is not allowed to have graduated from an accredited educational program. Shocking, I know! I couldn't believe it, until my daughter had a horrible math teacher & I researched it. Any school district that accepts nontraditionals has not studied the failure rate of the program!
I have a two children attending Cedarville. One is in special education. Both have gone to the school their entire school years. I also graduated from Cedarville. I find the teachers and staff exceptional!!!! I wish we had more money in our district to pay some of these teachers who care so much.
