Essential autism services are unavailable. The other children and their parents are losers too. People in this town can't even drive down the road without swerving over the line. Tons of loud trucks, trackers, bikes and unleashed dogs.

Looking for school choice out of cms. Top administration allows crazy parents to rule the roost because they have not guts to do the right thing. Our kids say the school principal can not be trusted. Getting out.

This school is going down the drain! No money being spent on kids or teachers but guess who gets their huge raise increases? Top top top and they do the least amount of work! Kids are crowed in small classes and teachers are burnt out.

I have not had positive experiences with administration here. The new Assistant Principal is very professional. The Principal not so much!

I find the school to be lacking in extra help for the children in need. They offer extra help after school but do not focus on helping the children with homework and classwork that was not completed. They do not offer summer school which is a huge disappointment. The MCAS scores for this school are ...  Read more

I am a student at CMS. It is okay but i need to be more challenged. The school could use more money to improve supplies and the actual building. Its my 2nd year here and the teachers i have met are very friendly. I'm glad to go to this school. Even if its not the best. Even though our school test scores ...  Read more
