In Central New York this may not be the best school, but having gone to other parts of NY I realize how amazing the education I got here was. I graduated with a complete understanding of all subjects and I can read, spell and think of more than three things at once, which I cannot accredit to many schools where I am now.

This school has an excellent faculty and staff that go above and beyond to provide students with a strong education that prepares them for the future. They have focused the past five years on aligning the curriculum to NYS standards and also in reaching the needs of our special education population and at risk students. The Academic Enrichment program has been enhanced to reach more students. It also offers full day UPK and Kindergarten. The elementary provides early intervention services for students. The technology program is outstanding! Student issues are dealt with in a fair and consistent manner. Character education is emphasized at the elementary as well. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved. The Elementary was recognized last year as a High Performing/Gap Closing school District by the State Education Department.

I graduated from Cincinnatus two years ago. Many of my teachers were fantastic and they frequently doubled as our coaches. They were willing to do whatever it took for students to understand, both on and off the field. Nearly everyone is a friend to everyone else. I am just now finishing my second year of college, and I am doing well. I learned how to successfully balance academics with sports/clubs/drama/student senate, which I strongly feel prepared me for life beyond high school. Many parents are incredibly involved, which is just one more reason why Cincy was a great experience. Overall, I do agree that the school has some quirks that could be worked out. However, if you are looking for an excellent small town town in which to raise your children, consider Cincinnatus.

Honestly, the quality of our schools academic programs are very poor. We do have the availability of many extracurricular activities, but the level of parent involvement is also very low. Our school doesn't seem to look into what is best for the children, but what is more convenient for them. They set rules, but seem to just change them whenever they feel like it. I do not recommend this school for anybody.

I had three children that graduated from this school, and I feel that they did not receive a good education from this place. This school did not properly prepare them for college, nor did they receive the recogonition that they deserved at times. My oldest son always placed seventh in his class from 5th grade on, and was not allowed to be in the Honor Society, for the teachers thought he was into drugs because of his artwork and his long hair. My second child only excelled because of his music, which was to the school's advantage, when they needed him. My youngest child had to take a special class in college to learn how to study because this school never properly taught them. She made Dean's list all through college, and this was after this school told her not to waste her time going because she would fail out.

I'm just about to become a Senoir at this school and have been attending Cincinnatus since I was in the 1st grade. All in all, this school is excellent. In a town where everyone knows your name, I've had teachers that my parents had in high school ... We call them the greats, and as they retire and we hire new ones, they add to the atmosphere with their fresh perspectives. Growing up in a small town is something I'll never forget. It gives everyone a chance to participate and become something within the comunity. It is not something you'd get in a bigger school. We also offer classes for which you recieve dual creidt. College and High school credits for the same class.
