Quality of the teaching staff leaves much to be desired. Their homework assignments are many times bewildering. The requirements are unclear, they copy assignments from prior years, even down to due dates. This especially confusing when holidays move around like Easter/Passover break. Some classes seem to have no clear reason to exist such as "Content Literacy" which appears to be little more than silent reading and vocabulary words.

The academic education my child is getting is far to be the best of the State now imagine from the Country, And I am not even going to include the world because that will be asking too much. Very incapable staff. It is not the best education money can buy!

This is a terrible school. They don't prepare you at all for highschool and they have the stupidest rules that don't make sense. They don't even let you bring water bottles to school. Im in high school now and I found that nothing helped.

This School is great! No matter what I want for my child, they get. The word 'NO' is not in their vocabulary. It's as if I don't even have to raise my child myself. Such a Deal!!! The best Education Money could buy!!!

I'm from the Candlewood clas of 07. I went to Candlewood in 6-8th grade. It has good teachers, but a few bad ones. The school is modern, and has a track around its football field. It is a little bit strict however, and the District doesn't mail report cards;instead giving parents the oppurtunity to view them online. As a former student, I rate Candlewood 4 of 5 stars.
