As a student, I will say CHMS is an old school. It does need improvements, but the teachers, faculty, and programs we have are wonderful. I've never had a "grade drop" at the school. In fact, my grades hae actually improved as I go through. Point is, it's a great school, and it has great people.

My child went to school here for 2 yrs. she hated it. Her grades dropped and was a task to get her to scholl everyday. We transferred schools she now makes straight a's again and loves school.

I love CHMS! It's a really great school. Our teachers are eager and willing to help us learn many new things. They are very understanding when we need help. They try their best to make sure we are in a safe (emotionally and physically) environment. They meet our needs in many ways. The teachers make learning fun and don't put us under an unbearable amount of pressure. They do not (for the most part) show favoritism. I have liked almost all of my teachers so far. I actually enjoy coming to school. I enjoyed the previous school year, and look forward to going back in August!
