Having had 4 children go through this wonderful school, I have so much respect and admiration for Mrs. Himes and her teachers. Thanks for a wonderful education .

I've had two children attend this school and have been very satisfied with their educations. I only hear great things about the new principal. The teachers seem committed to doing a great job. There has been a lot of growth in the area, which has caused them to outgrow the building, but they will be moving into the old high school building soon. (after renovations are completed). After school activities are great and varied. The music programs are excellant. My only complaint would be home ec class. We actually learned to cook/bake (even pies) and sew (clothing with real patterns on machines) when I was in school. Here they make no bake cookies a lot and hand sew furry stuffed pillows, etc.

The new principal is great and has created a great environment for the students. Cmls has video cameras in every corner and hallway which makes the student be more concious of their actions. I transfered last year and the students are welcoming and the teachers try their best to educate the students.

I feel that this school is more worried about its reputation as a school then the child. My daughter is failing everything and dispite the fact that I have talked with the teacher numerous times about her never having any homework (the teacher says they have time in class to do there work) she isn't turning work in and now has an F in every subject. I have talked with the teacher about holding her back and I am told that 'per the principles directive they don't do that'. Whatever that means. So they want to pass my daughter on, even though the has an F average, so that there school doesn't have any failing students.

I have found [the principal] very helpful but sometimes must make tough decisions. The parents would like to run the school, but it is clear that the administration has taken control. Teacher quality is terrific and my kids are well prepared for high school. Over all an excellent, safe education.

This is a wonderful school with after school activties for anyone! This is a great school with good teachers. The students are very smart. They do need to replace the gym though. The new principal is a wonderful woman who is very good in situations. The parents are involed in lots of the the childrens activities. The children are very safe in this school. I give this school high ratings

This school is a mess. The administration is poor, the teachers average, the facilities jammed. They are using trailers for classrooms. The learning environment is strained with overall parent involvement ranging from non-existant to good. The overall impression is not one of caring about a quality education.

Cheat lake middle does not have the proper administration. Lacking in the knowledge of personal skills, and overall care for your children.

This school is overcrowded to say the least. The facilities are inadequate, and their is a great variation among quality of the teachers. the administration and the parents generally do not get along well and their is not a feeling of being welcome as a parent. Meetings and events are often scheduled when many parents work and cannot attend.

The academic qualty is great. Their are robotic,math,and science programs. Their are speical classes for the arts that every student takes. The parents are veay involved in everything. This is a great school. The fun is at the end of every semester their is a reward trip. If you are bad or don't do your work you won't go. This is the best school in the district(just my opinion).
