This school is full of social groups. It is very difficult to fit in. Different groups easily make enemies from The upside of this school is the teachers and staff. They are very helpful and teach the students very well. Overall this school is an average job but could improve on trying to split the social groups.
far too cliquey! So many teachers and admins. related to students as well as very clear social divisions. Superintendent is clueless. Has dropped every year in the national rankings and they have a very bad bully problem that they sweep under the rug. The clique parents/PTO make their own rules and who they apply to and it is never them. Very non-inclusive to all students and they go out of the way to promote what they want spotlighted and ignor the rest. We are seriously looking into moving out of this district. Some teachers/admins are very rude to both parents and students.
love the school, and teachers etc..but if you are trying to make a sports team they are definitely very political...who you know, not your skill,,we were new to the school, my daughter came in 8th grade..had played soccer and softball for years, I even coached...she didn't make either team...girls were actually coming up to her in the hallway saying they couldnt believe she didnt make the team...I just wish they could be me more open minded when it comes to picking the best, and not because someone's sister or brother were on the team a few years ago....extremely unfair and can ultimately really discourage kids from believing in "doing your best" and being rewarded
As a sixth grader at CMS the principal Mr. Huncharski has helped me adapt to being at a new school. The teachers are wonderful and are very supportive. The kids at the school seem to like the principal, he is super cool!
