The teachers are nice and listen to what the students say well enough, but the teachers aren't the problem; it's the students. Some of the students just don't listen and do what they want, like in most schools, but because the school itself is small, meens that they have a bigger imprint on the other students than at most other schools. Not to metion the fact that the school is low on cash and can't afford very much new sports aquipment. Cuba Middle/Senior Highschool isn't all bad though. Because it is small, it meens that children don't usually get picked on very much. A very good thig about this school is that fights are very low. Also, another pro to being small is that students can get direct help from their teachers if they have any problems. The main problem with the school is money, but other than that it is just as good as most small schools. I would recommend this school if you want your child to have a small class. Most classes at Cuba Middle/Senior Highschool have abuot 40 children in each one.
