School Reviews

  • Recommended October 17, 2013 - I would reccommend CMS as the school of choice for any family considering a change or moving into our area. Our teacher/student ratio is lower which gives your student the best attention and meets their need much better. Our staff is dedicated and willing to assist parents/students in getting the best education possible. I have supported CMS for many years as my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren attend and wouldn't choose anywhere else. - Posted by Parent
