    My child attended this school all 3 years. Many of the teachers pushed their political views on the students & the ones who didn't agree were openly ridiculed. There were several good teachers we encountered at this school but due to student disobedience they had difficulty doing their job. I feel that my child 'survived' CHS & am moving out of the area before my 2nd child has to attend there. They have a new principal now & hopefully things have improved but I'm not sticking around to find out.

    Being alumni from Craigmont Middle (2004) I think the school was the best when we were there but I also still love the school with a passion. I'd recommend it to any child to have a wonderful middle school experience. It got me ready for high school. I'd go back if I could.. that's just how much I love the school

    This is one of the best schools for a student to attend. I will love to recommend this school to lots of parents. I know because I'm a student at Raiment Middle. I'm in the 7th grade. I really think this school is a great place for students to learn!

    The acedemic programs are great they have ways for students to choose wheather or not the want to take a certain course. The extracurricular activities are educating and the girls basketball sport department has #1 in North Division. Parental involvement from 1 to 10 would be-10 because they always update you on meetings and want your child is needs help in etc..
