    SCMS offers many extracurricular opportunities. The prinicipal is really involved in the community. The new Board should seek to support ALL schools equally.

    I love this school so much! they have very good lunches and the teachers teach everything that needs to be teached and they do it in a fun way! sometimes we get in trouble as a class but teachers are just trying to help us not disciplining for fun.

    This school district is doing a good job...I have not had a teacher problem yet. It pays to be in contact with your child's teachers though. They have high expectations which I like. Would like to see more classes in the arts like drama more clubs such as Language Club just generally more of that type instruction. I don't believe in a perfect school - I have some small problems with this district but overall I think they keep the children's needs in mind not the convenience of parents which is as it should be. They expect support from home. It is frustrating from a parent or teacher point of view with all the new laws and requirements of government.

    This school has been a big disappointment. The caliber of the English teachers has been shockingly poor. I can recommend it only in contrast to most of the other public schools in the county.
