All of these students come from affluent Silicon Valley homes, and most do not understand the meaning of hard work. Some of the kids of Indian descent do grasp the need for grit, but generally the kids are complacent.
If I had known CMS did not offer a well rounded education I would've never send my child to this glorified math camp. The school is only obsessed with mathematics and grading not education. If your child is not up to par in test scores you will be pressured to send your kid to their "math computer program class". Everyone knows a computer program is better at teaching than a actual human being, (sarcasm).
My child was made to skip a grade and is doing well in math yet they want to put him in this "computer math class" because his scores are not 100%. What happened to giving students a well rounded education? I'm sick of schools like CMS that breed non creative people that are not able to problem solve and think outside of the box, not everyone wants to be a number cruncher their whole lives.
CMS needs to wake up and stop with their motto of memorization is education because your kids are not learning anything, just memorizing work to pass tests. Ask them how to do a lesson they did a month ago they won't be able to do it, one ear out the other, great job CMS!
The teachers take no accountability for anything. I never met so many teachers that have zero organizational skills, never grade anything on time and obviously new to their job.
The only positive I can think of is they have a good anti bullying program. Maybe this program should be taught to the parents that I see on a regular basis slapping and beating their kids after school during pick up because they got a bad grade, disturbing!
