    After sending my child to Cockesville I am greatly pleased. THe teachers really seem to care about the students the building is free of grafiti and litter and they offer many different extraciricular activites. Their academic programs do indeed challenge my child in a healthy manner. Plus the student body is diverse although the teachers aren't.

    I am very happy with my child's experience at CMS. She is in GT classes and I feel that the curriculum is challenging and diverse. Although the school is very diverse in student population I agree that the faculty do not reflect this at all. Overall a really great public school with adequate facilities and kind and caring teachers and staff.

    I love cms. I think the construction drives me crazy and a few teacher don't see ho much more advanced the students are then the classes. The school is highly diverse. Overall great scholl.

    CMS has fantastic after school activities and they really know how to discipline the children. I think though that sometimes they pay a lot of attention to the students that need help a lot which is good but they exclude the really smart ones because they know they will pass the tests. But overall it's a good school

    As a former student entering high school as class of 2011 I feel I'll miss CMS. There are plenty of amazing memories and great teachers. The music and art departments are fantastic I cannot emphasize that enough. One major drawback is the lack of discipline. The school just cannot get it right. Do not get me wrong there isnt (much) violence besides a fight now and then or anything. But they are very tough on extremely little and insignificant things but let the important things like ditching or harassment slide. But it is a great school and the three years went by far too quickly. Enjoy it while you can.

    The academic programs are quite limited and the facility is lacking. I do know that they school is heavily under renovation which is desperately needed. The teachers and staff are more than kind to everyone there but not so with the student. Many student are rude and require more discipline. I suppose my expectations were high since I came from such a wonderful school district--Upper Dublin namely. I hope there are improvements toward more discipline on the students and a better facility.
