I am very happy with CMS ~ the teachers are great, and the curriculum is current and rigorous. There are opportunities for all grade levels to participate in sports, and the music and art programs are top-notch!!!

Unfortunately, the school is run like a daycare and only the highest achieving or most athletic are acknowledged. There is also too much time spent on preparing for the standardized tests.

Both of my daughters attended and graduated from the Middle School. I was impressed with the quality of the teachers and administrators. The curriculum is strong, although I would have appreciated more attention to math.

About the tests

The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
