School Reviews

5   9/6/2013
I have had children in every grade level in this school district. I have only come across two teachers that were unapproachable and and did not work as a team for the best interest of my child. They were in this school, however, since then they have retired, thank goodness!!! Cedar Mountain is my favorite school. The staff is wonderful, kind and caring, from the principal to the nurse, to the librarian, to the custodians, to the teachers, to the office and so on. The SCA lacks parent support. The students would benefit so much more, if there was more parent participation.
