I attended Cimarron my freshman year and I found the teachers to be extremely caring and helpful. They actually listened and would gladly offer extra help. But the administration, I had a problem with. They wouldn't hesitate to single out a student, and on numerous occasions played favorites. Being a unique dressing/looking person, I was continually singled out for unreasonable things like an 'inappropriate' necklace, which was confiscated and donated to charity the very next day before I even got the opportunity to collect it, and other things such as wearing a stud belt, having distracting hair and makeup, and once even for tight jeans. The students, that was even worse. The majority of students were very unaccepting and discriminative, and overall cruel. Administration pays very little attention to this.
I graduated from CMHS 3 months ago, and I've been in this school since my freshmen year until senior year and I love CMHS. I think is one of the best school Las Vegas has because all of the staff members really help the students, and the parents that are concern about their daughter/son education... CMHS have a really great school spirit and really good sports team...
Why do they list this school as being in North Las Vegas? I agree with one post that CMHS was a great school in the beginning. That is because most new schools are great when they first open. There is more parent involvement at first and that is the one thing that Cimarron is definately lacking at this point. In fact that is probably what most schools are lacking. It is still overall one of the better schools in Las Vegas.
The school is not bad but it it is not as good as some people make it up to be. Maybe the previous years for previous students were good but now Cimarron is going downhill. They need to start spending money on things that will actually benefit the school rather than waste it on new lights for the quad or a new gate. Most teachers at the school do not pay attention to the students who need it. The counselors are somewhat helpful but mostly to the more popular kids. Elective classes need to be taken a bit more seriously. We need more Mr. Kaempfers. -Kieron-
I ama freshmen at cimarron and i enjoy it very much. The campus life is great, and all of the teachers are helpful and friendly.
First impression wasn't good at all, but as I spent almost a year, I got used to this school traditions, people (3000 students is pretty crowdy), teachers and school colors ( too dark for a school, people I know usually say that this school looks more like preason). And again people are not that bad after all, you just have to get to know them better. A lot of fun activities, a lot of fun clubs and very successfull sport teams. School has great organizing ability. For those who are conserned, fights are not common in Cimarron-Memorial High School at all. That is one of the best qualities of school.
All I have to say about this school is that its terrible! The teachers are horrible and the administration does not care about any of the students. Only the ones that have money.
I'm a graduated from cimarron about 2 and a half months ago. I went to Cimarron for 9th-12th grade and it was a really good experience because the teachers and the counslers were very caring and helpful. Overall cimarron is a really good school!
I am a graduate of the class of 02. I only attended CMHS my Junior and Senior years. Before that I had attended three other high schools. Out of all, this was far beyond the best. The remarks that the school isn't funded correctly is false, at least when I attended. I was involved in many art and sport programs and there wasn't a thing that was missing due to being 'Under-Funded'. The teachers do genuinly care about the students and there attendence and grades. Personally I think many teachers were a little too easy on the students having more difficulty. And only once did I witness a teacher passing a student because they were on the football team. Overall, a great school.
When I attended this school, teachers had to continually ask (and almost beg) the principal to fund educational supplies such as resources for the science department and the English department -- funds greatly needed for students to have the proper resources in core classes in order to be competitive for college. My freshmen class had more than 1100 students yet only graduated about a third of that. The science department could not afford supplies for common lab experiments however the basketball team was given reclining chairs for the sideline one particular year. Teachers and administration were constantly fighting because of situations similar to this which, of course, affected the students caught in the middle.
