I am a current Junior at South River High, neighboring Central. I went to Central for middle school, and at the time the school was slightly better. However, this is relative, for the caliber of education both here and at a great number of other Anne Arundel County Public Schools is disappointing at ...  Read more

People at this school curse a lot and it is not a safe enviorment. I would not reccomend this school to people who are sheltered.

I have 2 children who currently attend CMS - 6th and 8th grade. I have been very pleased with the caliber and caring nature of the teachers and principal. Yes, they have a bullying awareness program - that doesn't mean there is a bullying problem - but rather a goal to prevent one. Is there bullying, ...  Read more

As a former student I'm only being honest when I say this school has quite a lot of problems, and this had a very significant effect on me. This school's student body is entirely run by cliques and there really isn't anything effective being done to at least decrease this; there are punishments, but ...  Read more

My son transferred here from public school in 7th grade and I wish he had attended all along. The teachers are of such high caliber, and are so caring about the children's progress, both academically and socially. The school community is very engaged and active with one another through in-school and ...  Read more
