Im a grandparent and have had issues with administration/ teachers professionalism. Students privacy is not kept and the way they handle complaints is not acceptable. No follw through and very disorganized.
My son was extremely frustrated that his seventh grade math was a repeat of what he studied in sixth grade in NH. Parents have ZERO say regarding excused absences - doctor's note only. If you carefully read the attendance policy, you will see that a little bad luck with sickness that needs bed rest instead of doctor's visits could lead to criminal charges and loss of custody of your children. The school district played a large role in our family moving away.
I am a student at North Cumberland Middle School, and it is one of the best I have ever attended. The teachers work hard to help you and make learning fun. They also have awesome class trip s like the Washington DC trip and Quebec trip.
There is a need to keep in contact with teachers and administrators. Children in this school can get lost in the mass of other students. If you keep communications open your child should do ok. You can not let your guard down or you will be disappointed with the school.
I was a student at NCMS and while I dispise the Cumberland public school system, this school is a good one. I liked most of my teachers. They were fun and had different ways of teaching. Without Ms. Matega as my resource teacher I would have never passed my math classes.
I am a student at NCMS, and I can vouch for many of the students and parents when they say this place needs some work. The teachers are narrow-minded and focus on all of the wrong things. The teachers definitely need to come together, and communicate with the students and teachers better.
