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.

Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
