I had a child in Cardinal McCarrick. I have heard they are trying to recruit kids from inner cities if they excel in sports. I have also heard about bullying from certain atletic team members and administration turning their heads tothis behavior. With all thats going on withthe eduacation system these

My son was a student in this school, and I couldn't pull him out fast enough. The classes were a joke. Kids were out of control, while teachers stood by and did nothing. There is virtually no discipline in this school. I would advise parents looking into schools for their children to defiantely look

Can not for the life of me understand why a teacher who does so much for the school both in and out of the classroom would be let go due to budget cuts, etc. The school is being run with four administrators for a student body of less than 380 (far from the 469 stated at the top of the page). How is

Someone once said something like this: 'If you like the work I'm doing, tell others. If you don't, tell me' You cannot judge the educational level of a school, by complaining about administrative nuisances.

I'm a senior at CMHS, and the four years I have spent at this school have been the best. I have made so many great friends, participated in soccer, softball, lyceum, student council, NHS, French NHS, foreign Language club, and the drama club, and I am currently taking three AP courses. The teachers and

Not only are we prepared for college, but we are deeper in our faith and become well-rounded individuals. Both of my older sisters attended this school, and two of my cousins are actually in the school with me right now, and my family and I have noticed how much the school has improved over the past 10 years or so. My memories of this school will never fade. Read less

Wow! in response to the AP parents, they obviously do not know how difficult that AP exam is and how more than 1/2 the students that take it do not get 4's and 5's but still receive college credit. Maybe these parents need to be a little bit more involved in their childs academic career and do some research!
