    excellent teaching staff. many extracurricular activities to choose from The activities are or such great variety, that any student should be ablt to enjoy one or more. The thing lacking is the ability to steer students toward better social behavior. Dress codes and stricter supervision on appropriate conduct on school property would make a great difference. This also includes themes picked for socials and balls, and movies seen, books read. They could greatly increase the opportunities to teach and inspire the students toward possitive behavior and thought patterns. We love the school overall and are very pleased to have our child atttend.

    I really like this school that is CMS but, the problem is that it gives way too much homework. I never get the chance to have social life with my friends! - Alissa Engman

    This school is great, an inside source I will tell you that the food is great, the teachers are fun and individuals are okay, even though lots of the people are preps and snobs there are other people too that except you for who you are. This middle school is great! I love it here, and it is great to know that I can be excepted for who I am.

    Parent involvement is not encouraged. Make Your Day Program is disliked by students, most consider it a 'joke'. Staff support of substitute teachers is often non-existant. Principal is not very observant and very much out of touch with what's happening in the school.
