This school is amazing and I hope to send my children here someday! Thank You CMS!


Posted November 19, 2011

I can't imagine a worse school in America for students with disabilities. As a parent no imput is allowed on our sons IEP. Our son has had few word utterances 10 years of school. The school supplied sign language for one and half years he was doing great then they dropped sign language. He continues to have few word utterances. Unless you know him you can't understand him. They got him a IPAD for communication. They do not even use it for communication. I asked for our son to have challenging goals. He was writting before he went to CMS but they removed writting from his IEP and had him write with pictures instead. they have told me for 8 years they would use the book teaching reading to children with down syndrome. Still waiting for superman. No help . P&A attended a meeting by phone nothing they suggested has happened.

This is probably the best school in the nation that you can enroll a kid in.

it is an okay school kinda short but that is not why they only get four stars they have to stay hip or whatever the youngins say and the could get the childrens ipads

My child has gone to school here for three years. She has been harassed and has told teachers about it and they have done nothing. I don't recommend this school to anyone. The computers are garbage and constantly break without the students breaking them. The school give students broken computers and make kids pay for them. In all take your kids far away from this school.

The Cody Middle School should be the benchmark for many other middle schools. Students receive MAC laptops that travel with them. (at no charge to the family). Power School,an application used to keep parents informed is awesome. We get weekly e-mail notifications to let us know how our child is doing weekly. Lastly, the teachers care and are quick to respond to parent questions and concerns.

Too stubborn, doesnt take time to listen to needs, and keeps with a poor standard. Very dissapointed, and my son as well, says that no one should take there child there, He knows he wont...

This school is the worst school I have witnessed a child being educated in. The principal uses intimadation of staff and parents ot hide the below policy standards way he controls the school. The PTA meeting has required staff and fewer than 5 parents in attendance. No PBIS training available for parents . Ventilation does'nt work for students , principal has airconditioning

There are Great Teachers at this school. My oldest struggled in Elementary School, but since starting in the Middle School has excelled. Thanks to the time the teachers take with the students....

This school is horrible, and takes no care to help students as I see it . There are a lot of bullying problems, and the education is below averege, it seems. There is little action taken in big problems and the school is a mess.

First let me say that the academic programs and availability of extracurricular acivities at this school compared to where we came from is exceptional.
