Mrs Goldammer taught all my children in Algebra. Super fantastic teacher. She zones in right away on the childs learning style and makes them LOVE math. Mrs Wolfsen taught my 9th grader Bio-medical Engineering and really engaged and encouraged her love for the medical field. Mr Swilling taught my son JROTC. I can not say enough good things about him and his program. Mr Lewis taught my son history and really was open minded and engaged my sons love for politics and history. We were lucky to have had these teachers this year. I saw the growth my children had from their positive influence and love for teaching.
My son is a junior at Cane Bay High and has had nothing but great experiences. The arts teachers are second-to-none and the content teachers, in addition to being experts in their fields, are supportive and encouraging. The administration is heavily involved in making sure that all students are encouraged to excel. Although he had the opportunity to attend both a magnet school in the district and a school in the feeder pattern in which his father works, our family chose Cane Bay because of the excellent opportunities it affords. feel very blessed that my son has had the opportunity to get his education at Cane Bay High where the school is a community, pulling together for the success of all students.
Students who struggle in any way (academically, athletically, artistically) are provided with support and encouragement, holding fast to their goals and given the tools with which to reach them. Giving up is not an option at CBH.
I have witnessed the courteous nature students exercise in this school: the way they greet and hold doors for visitors and the kindness with which they treat the retired gentleman who volunteers in the school store. The atmosphere in the school is one of supportive respect, as modeled by administrators and faculty members, alike.
Through a variety of methods, Cane Bay High develops caring and empathy in students. Beginning with service opportunities (e.g., helping the Water Missions project and working with Special Olympics), including advocacy opportunities (e.g., collecting can tabs for charity and working with fund raisers for the American Cancer Society), as well as direct service opportunities (e.g., the band marching in the MLK Day parade and football players reading to elementary students), CBH helps students be aware of others besides themselves and to see what they can do to help in the world.
My daughter is a straight A student. Has been since kindergarden. The only problem I have with this school is that there is no credit or encouragement given to the students. My daughter was use to hearing from her teachers that she does an amazing job and that she's an outstanding student. I find there are a lot of young teachers also that do not know how to professionally talk to a parent when they have a concern. One is particular but I'll keep the name to myself. We came from Florence school district where the teachers were into encouraging there students but here my daughter feels like just another student. I was happy recently that one teacher has stepped up to the plate and tells my daughter how proud she is of her. It makes her feel that all the hard work she is putting in means something. I am just glad that my daughter has two parents who encourage her other wise she wouldn't get that from 99 percent of her teachers.
