My son goes to CDMS and I see a lot of favoritism, lack of tolerance for children with disabilities, and overall a disgrace to the public school system. Teachers are quick to point fingers and punish without evaluation of the entire situation, IF you child has special needs (504, IEP) or has any kind of mental issues, this school will do nothing but frustrate you and make you consider a lawsuit. Do not enroll you child. Reconsider other options. I have several specific situations where punishment was unfair, and the staff will try to "blow smoke" and make you think they are on your side and really care about your child. NOT all teachers at CDMS are this way, but I am very positive several are. Good luck.

My son is in 8th grade at CDMS. Overall he has had a very good experience with this school. My son is a good student that works hard to please his teachers. He did have a problem with a teacher in 6th grade, but I guess that happens at all schools. Other than that one bad experience he loves this school and has gotten to know some great teachers. He has lots of friends and looks forward to high school next year. Also the principal is just a wonderful person, very fair and understanding.

I graduated from this school and would recommend anyone moving to Greene County to register their child there. It is a school were the teachers will care about your child and that education is more important than sports.
