My experience with the teachers have been pretty good. However, I think the teachers are being "bullied" by the principal and are afraid to speak up for what is best for the student. I was warned by many people about CMS schools before enrolling my son in CMS Kindergarten year. I thought that was their own experiences and was willing to give CMS a chance. I am now looking to enroll in a charter school and hope to have a better experience where teachers are able to teach with proper resources and support.

Mostly bad. This school need more resources for its population. Or to better use their resources. In my opinion requirements that would assist in meeting the standards of CMS are unmet. Sure it's easy to focus on the smarter children magnet or not my child suffered academically and not because of a learning disability. Teachers need less student and more tolerance. They also need more flexibility to focus on each child and homework to be defined by the classwork. No school I would imagine is perfect neither is any one child but the mutual tolerance should be beneficial to all whom have a stake.

This school has been a magnet school of distinction for a few years now so they must be doing something right. The magnet program is great. Finally a principal that is involved and noticeable. Teachers do care

Great school. Teachers are excellent with communication with parents

This school does not reflect that area it is in, it only reflects the apartments that are near by. No one that lives in the houses in the school zone go to this school (they all go to charter or private). The only reason the test scores are increased to give this school a score of 6 is because of the magnet program (and high IQ kids can make any school look good) and that is it. It is often, especially in the upper grades, that you hear teachers demean, degrade and yell at the multitude of unruly kids. It is unfortunate that the principal hires "her friends", though the principal has been gone all year due to some sort of health issue. CMS should look at Mallard Creek and why parents run for the hills. The area has a lot to offer unfortunately Mallard Creek is just horrible, we removed our kids ASAP to a spot at a local charter school.
