If you have a child who does not have any issues, this school is ok. It offers several honors and AP courses for above average students. But, if you have a child that has difficulties (I have two children with Asperger's and one who is neurotypical) this district as a whole is definitely NOT for your family. The administration is extremely difficult to work with, and the teachers are often uncommunicative and many seem to be almost unwilling to accommodate children with disabilities. There are, I'm sure, some good qualities and there are definitely some excellent teachers. But, overall, it has been my experience that the entire district is very difficult to work with if you have a child requires anything more than minimal academic assistance from the school.

Went to this school from 10th grade to 12th then i had to move to florida. This School was the best school i have ever been to. From the teachers to the Counselors every staff member here will help you in anything. The Teacher quality is beyong amazing, is hard not to learn when the teachers do such a great job at helping the students in every subject. They have a lot of after school activities that will help you succeed and become a better person. I will never forget this school and its faculty, i wish i can go back and do it all over again, it was one of the best experiences of my life.

Sure, the school is huge but this is my first year in the school and i absolutely love it. Some of u parents r saying how it is too big and yes, it is, and if u dont like it then ur kids shouldnt go there if u dont want them to. but the counselores do care and all the teachers, principal, and everyone r trying there best to get ur kids a great education. I have had many fantastic opportunities in this school and madde tons of new friends. But yes, we have drop outs but dont blame the school, kids dont just get born hatting school or being lazy or having trouble(ok so they might) but if u notice it with ur own children, tak it upon urself to do something about, not the school.

I like CNS a lot. Looking at the parental comments I noticed most of them didn't like it, but I feel, as a student it's better because there is a lot of students. You get to know different kinds of people and are offered a large variety of things that smaller schools would not provide. If you wnat to be recruited or need help you have to go get it yourself, but who is going to just hand it to you in the real world? There is so much talent here and the teachers are spectacular. I would recommend it to anyone.

I currently attend CNS high school and will be graduating in june. I absolutely love this school, i have made lots of friends and some friends i am confident i will be freinds with for a long time. i would say that i am an above average student in the sense that i take many advanced placement classes but taking then has not made me any more stressed out. the teachers make it wonderful to be in class, and they help you to the best of their ability. the extra ciriculars are amazing. there is either a club or a sport for any student. i would reccomend this school for anyone. it has truely been a wonderful time of my life

If I could do things differntly, knowing what I know now, I would not send my kids to CNS. It's too big! There are good things happening, but you as the student have to really seek it out.They are not going to find you. Sports teams (at least the ones I'm involved with) are too small for the number of kids at the school. Forget a coach helping you get recruited, and forget the guidance or career center helping you get a scholarship. It's all on you to get what you need/want.

This school is huge. There are way to many students going to this school and the district has become enormous. Most teachers care and the Principal Mr. Froio obviously cares about the school but when you are responsible for that many students it is just difficult. If you aren't in the top or bottom 2% you just get forgotten about. The music department is excellent.

Communication is poor. Teachers need to be held accountable for what they say to our children, weather in High School or First Grade. Special Education as come a long way in the last couple of years, but still needs some improvement.

Alot of great memories are made at this school. Ran girls Varsity track since i can remember. The sports programs are amazing and the coaches push you to be all you can. The teachers look out for your best intrest and will do all the can to help you, if your willing to work. The faculty teaches you responsibilty and believes in you even when you make mistakes. Although there are a few fights throughout the year, if you have a problem and tell a couseler or teacher something will be done. It's very safe.

This school is great. Although, it is true that the halls are crowded sometimes, but overall, the school is good. The teachers are very helpful, the counselor's are always there if you need to talk and everyone is usually very nice. I graduated from this school in 2006.

I currently attend this high school, even though it may be crowded in the hallways, it is a very good school to go to. If you are having a difficult time in your classes, the teachers will talk to you personally, the principal will even ask you what will help you with your classes. I recommend this school to alot of parents.

I have had 3 children go thru this district. I still have 2 more to complete school. I am not happy with the size of this district and the crowding in the schools. I saw first hand the way problems, no matter how small or how devastating, are pushed under the rug or minimalized. The size makes it hard to deal with the individuals not just the masses. My children attended private schools as long as financially possible. This allowed their personalities and strenghths to be nurtured. I feel that this district is like many other districts who are disguising the number of drop outs. Too many children are getting lost in the system and the schools are only dealing with those who are not a problem and who make the school look good for statistics.

This school provides an excellent chance to make friends and the teachers are always willing to provide one-on-one with a student that might need extra attention. The only drawback would be the hallways between classes. There are so many students that it is very crowded and not always so easy to make it to certain classes on time. (By the way, this is coming from a student, not a parent. I would listen to a student's perspective before a parent's because I experienced this school firsthand and lived it every day for 3 years.) I had many good friends and every teacher of mine was always willing to help me with anything I needed, even if it was not related to their class.

It is a very large district, one that is easy for your child to get lost in. I am an alumni and was often lost in the crowd with very little attention. You would constantly have different people in your classes and it is hard to really make good friends. It is like being a cattle in a herd when it is time to change classes.
