For the most part, Cumberland International Early College High School seems to have dedicated teachers and decent students. However, I believe the primary problem at Cumberland International is the Principal, Mrs. McMillan. I have witnessed first-hand how disrespectful she is to both the staff and students of the school. Additionally, she appears to lack the knowledge and leadership skills necessary to effectively manage the school. She requires the teachers to use videos as the primary means of instruction, which ultimately cheats students of a high-quality education. Her out-of-line attitude has caused numerous teachers and students to leave the school. I would caution parents to think carefully before enrolling their children at Cumberland International, while under Ms. McMillan's leadership.

This School is like no other! You get some college classes early but you can only get 20 hours worth of college, meaning you have done half of your college in high school. The languages they offer are ok. Chinese is the worst class you could ever pick! The teacher treats you like garbage and makes fun of you! I have told the principle and everyone in that school but they won't do a thing! This school is like no other! If you live far away from FSU then save your time by not going to this school. They say things there are better but in reality it's the same a JBHS. They push a bit harder but it's like going to a regular high school with the same amount of drama. Save yourself time and money by not going to this school. The teachers are pretty cool and they interact with you. But that is about it really. If you think you are special by going to this school, well guess what, you're not! Everyone there is really dumb, they go into the school because the school is desperate! Go to Jack Britt or some other high school but not this one!
