My son is very happy at CEMS. Parents are extremely involved and inspiring. We moved here from out of state and I was concerned about how he would transition into a 5-8 school. Every day, he walks in from the bus with a big smile on his face and says that his day was awesome. I couldn't be happier. His grades are above average and he actually likes doing homework.
I am a parent whose children attended but are now grown and I have also been involved as a community volunteer and most recently as a substitute techer. So I have a rather unusual perspective and all I can say is that I have only been more impressed with each involvement. In these days of continuous budget cuts, teachers are constantly being asked to do more with less. The staff at our school is committed to students and it shows in the exceptional work that students produce. Thank you for caring!
As a parent of a child who seems to learn differently than the school curriculum is designed, I am very impressed with the way CEMS has embraced my son's style and helped him learn 'his' way. The staff and administration are all supportive of his needs. Also, the art/music/sports programs are all phenomenal.
My son is in the seventh grade and we love this school. The faculty is very attentive with students especially when they are slacking. Extracurricular activities are great and the community is also great and tight nit.
