Does anyone even look at this page anymore? lol. Well just in case. I was a student of CMHS for 3 years - I repeated 9th grade once. I dropped out in 10th grade because I was enduring a lot of bullying and harassment, and there was "nothing that could be done about it". This is a problem with the students and would vary depending on who you are and when you attend though. The school itself is excellent. It has a very happy, cheerful vibe to it and the teachers are amazing. Of course there's always a teacher or two that no one likes. But all of my teachers in all 3 years were absolutely amazing. It's hard to get around at first because the school is HUGE and it's impossible to find a seat at lunch unless you get there early (or go outside). Really this would have been 5 stars if not for the lack of discipline that there seems to be. I think the staff should make more of an effort to prevent harassment. But otherwise this is a great school and I'll definitely go out of my way for my kids to attend this school, even if I have to drive them out of county for it.

As a parent of two children at this school, there is a wide variety of after school activities for children to participate in. from band,archery,cheerleading,football,baseball, volleyball,dance,soccer,orchestra class. Just to name a few.. There is a lot of agriculture, horticulture, computer courses, various academic prep courses, AP courses, honors etc for college prep. This school is not a culturally diverse school which really is a negative. And the staff and community are pro sports and band with preferences and finances given to them(even in the yearbook).Which I noticed can interfered with other activities in the school. Parents here are either really involved or not at all. Depending on the family mostly noticing sports related than academic. Teachers do try to see that each child gets what they need and will try to give extra help a child when needed and asked for.Overall OK.

This school is great. Although the teachers are strict at times but that is sometimes necessary. What isnt necessary is everyone complaining about the dress code. There are some things that are not appropriate for school. Somethings are not appropriate for public period. My principal is the best! I love you mr. Baumman!

As a sophomore at Midland i have to say our new principal Mr.Webb has really changed things here at CMHS. As for teaching our teachers are pretty cool. Marching band at midland rocks cause we do so goodand win alot. Our sports are kinda off and on except for track who rule sports at Midland I feel pretty safe at CMHS. And finally this is a great school i would recommend it to anyone.

I love the school. We get a lot more freedom and respect then Milton Middle. I do think that the dress code and no holding hands policy is a little extreme, though.

I like Cabell Midland. We have good teachers, great athletics, and decent principals. It's a little overcrowded but the teachers do their best to give each child the individual attention he/she needs.

This is not a great school at all, compared to the last school my daughter attended this is horrid. Scores on the WASL are awful, how can I expect my daughter to get an education here?

I enjoyed my time at CMHS. I was in the first graduating class, so I didn't get to enjoy it but the 1st yr. But while I was there it was great!
