Awful. Unprofessional staff (my child saw a teacher on her dating website during class on her desk computer...), behavior of students is out of control and the administrators are terrified of dealing with bad parents, and the principal can hardly be bothered to do anything to get it all under control. It's a good thing that it's closing - I just hope we don't take old staff with us to the high school.
Essential autism services are unavailable. The other children and their parents are losers too. People in this town can't even drive down the road without swerving over the line. Tons of loud trucks, trackers, bikes and unleashed dogs.
Looking for school choice out of cms. Top administration allows crazy parents to rule the roost because they have not guts to do the right thing. Our kids say the school principal can not be trusted. Getting out.
This school is going down the drain! No money being spent on kids or teachers but guess who gets their huge raise increases? Top top top and they do the least amount of work! Kids are crowed in small classes and teachers are burnt out.
This year my child is attending the fifth grade and has been having some problems at school with other students being inappropriate and mean. I know it is hard for the teachers to keep parents posted on everything that goes on in the classes but there is a point where we as parents need information and phone calls. The grade 5 guidance counselor has contacted us on several occasions to keep us informed to the best of her ability. This is greatly appreciated. There is one counselor who has two grades of students to keep tabs on and she needs more help. The Vice Principal also seems overwhelmed with student behaviors and discipline. I think more help needs to step up to the plate here and help out. The team concept is only going to work if there is a cohesive team with a cooperative positive attitude.
Before moving out to Palmer my son was a great student, he loved school. Now I have to force him out the door. We moved while he was in 5th grade and he had a very hard time adjusting to the middle school concept. Now in 6th grade I still see him having some problems as he does not look forward to the school days. I am not happy that the teachers do not keep you informed as to how the child is doing especially if their grades are suffering.
I find the school to be lacking in extra help for the children in need. They offer extra help after school but do not focus on helping the children with homework and classwork that was not completed. They do not offer summer school which is a huge disappointment. The MCAS scores for this school are disappointing which also points to the poor teaching skills. It appears that someone needs to step in and get this school on track for a better future.
Im a 3rd year student at CMS n I love it. sure it isnt wayyy high tech. but you can learn a lot from the teachers who are super-duper nice! 'give my school a 9 star out of ten! ( yuo're the best teacher ever, Mrs. Catherine Reed!')
