Amazing teaching staff that is fully supported by the administration. Activities and sports that engage students. My son is not a great student, not a "joiner" and would easily fly under the radar someplace else, but not at Cedarbrook where he has been encouraged, cajoled and challenged by his teachers. Incredibly responsive administration has contacted me about issues, teachers let me know when academics are off track-- so I am impressed! This is a tough age and they know how to deal with it! I feel like we are on the same team.
As with all Cheltenham schools, Administration is the biggest problem. Cheltenham has forgotten the purpose of school and education. Administration is too concerned with federal red tape and testing. The next problem besides the school building itself is the bullying and very poorly behaved students.
I have been very pleased with the academic enhancement, fabulous music program, and diverse social environment that is offered.
My 7th grader is thriving at Cedarbrook Middle School. I can't say enough about the wonderful teachers and staff who care about the students, challenge and inspire them daily. Both of my children have had great experiences in the Cheltenham School District. It is consistently top rated and considered one of the best high schools in the country. That coupled with the fantastic, tight-knit community and proximity to the city makes Cheltenham a fantastic place to live.
My 8th grader loves her school & so do I. Her teachers are great. Plenty of great programs for every child.
I have nothing but great things to say about the school, the teachers, and activities. The challenge program is second to none.
This is my daughter's first year at Cedarbrook and it has been an amazing experience so far. The academics are top notch, especially if you have a high achieving child, and the activities are amazing! There is something of interest for almost any child. I find the school to be very communicative, organized, and well managed by its principals and administration. The teachers are enthusiastic and really excited to be there to teach my child.
Cedarbrook Middle school is a very great school. All of their schools are great!
I have a very high achieving child...he seemed very connected to the teachers there, did well, was given lots of acknowledgement, worked very hard...he is about to go to the HS, my daughter, more of an average student is about to enter Cedarbrook and I hope she can be successful there too. I love how well Cedarbrook communicated (unlike others) and they have wonderful extra activities for the overachieving type...good luck to all!
Rigid, unresourceful uninsightful management and misplaced priorities limit the effectiveness of reasonably good teaching staff and decent resources.
The school lacks constant communication with working parents. No school closings nor delays.They are good however when there are school events such as concerts, trips and outings
this is the greatest school ever! they have great academic opportunities, for on-grade and the double- accelerated students ( the double accelerated classes are difficult to keep up with, but it's definately worth it!) the teachers know what they're doing, and we have had some pretty great times here. we love cedarbrook! -Anonymous
Cedarbrook is a superb school. My child goes there and I am so proud of him when he walks in the door with a big smile on his face holding his test paper.
Many of the teachers go above and beyond the call of duty for the children. However, the administration needs to get with the program or the school will go down the tubes. Parents also need to get more involved with their child's school work.
Most of the teachers are wonderful, but the administration is weak, inexperienced, and inconsistent when it comes to administering discipline.
