Great Teachers! They truly work very hard and care about their students. They have needed to adapt to new teaching methods and routinely meet and collaborate on their approach. They embrace each child and give the extra help when they see it is needed!
Cumberland Hill has a cohesive team of teachers and administrators. There is a terrific 'small town' feeling to the school. The principal knows the name of every child. Our daughter's teachers have all communicated with us freely. The PTO is very active and sponsor quite a few events. There are a number of opportunities for parents to visit the school and speak to teachers. This is the kind of elementary school I remember from from my childhood.
Our teachers are the best! They genuinely care about their students, and do all they can w/ the resources they have.
I love the family feel about the school and how the parents involved can make a great difference and give our kids great experiences!
Our son has special medical needs. The school, staff and Nursing staff have been so understanding and accomodating to help have our son feel comfortable, acceptepted and that helps him to excell academically! We love the school, and the positive experiences we have had there!
To see your children come home with a smile and say it's because Ms or Mrs so and so is such a wonderful teacher makes all the difference in the world to a parent.
The school on a whole is great with a lot of teachers who truly care about the children and a PTO which is currently trying to pull the school back together. They were the only accredited school in the district last year from the state for exceeding expectations. The district itself has some disparities and I would like to see a more system wide consistency; but there are lots of changes coming here and the outlook looks good for the curriculum!
its got a great Parent/Teacher Organization with dedicated parents involved, wonderful teachers, and amazing children
The teachers, PTO and the whole community always works together for the kids.
The teachers are great and i love how they take the time to care about each student. The whole faculity works wonderful with each and every person...i truely love this school.
The Math system at this school is getting worse every year because of investigations. It isn't teaching anything and it just bringing a harder time to the parents because 1, they don't know and understand what there child is being taught and 2, the parents have to teach their kids the proper way to do the math inorder for their child to advance in any math type program.
There are a few geat teachers, but the rest leave me worried. This year a new principal was hired, and she seems to have no compassion for the students that have to put up with a known bully everyday at recess. There is a feeling of frustration and resentment with the lack of concern for these kids that have no one to stand up for them against bullies. Bullies are not held responsible for their actions at Cumberland Hill!
I am so happy that my daughter has such a great school with such dedicated teachers and a great principal. My daughter loves going to school.
