Cabell Midland High School Reviews

Cabell Midland has a lot of unique programs to help students learn the regular curriculum as well as becoming certified in a certain job area or skill. However, in recent years a lot of these programs have experienced cutbacks and/or budget cuts. The Fine Arts department has almost no funding, and the students fundraise 95% of the money needed to perform. The athletics are a completely different story. School sports receive massive amounts of funding with little to no restrictions on budget. The football and wrestling teams recently put a $4,000 sound system in their practice room. Meanwhile, the auditorium stage has fallen into disrepair. Last year, a stagelight almost fell onto a student, and the administration did nothing. Cabell Midland has incredible potential, but the people in charge have shown almost no interest and letting it realize that potential.

Even though Cabell Midland is an overall good school, there are a few things that could be changed. One of the biggest problems comes from overcrowding. Due to an overwhelmingly large classroom size, many teachers tend to overlook students who are not the mot outgoing. CMHS should also have a more diverse selection for lunch, and not just the same thing every day. Students get tired of the same (gross) food, and settle with not eating. Finally, there should be a broader course load offered to students, with a wide ranger of electives- not just in Arts and PE.
Cabell Midland High School has an excellent range of AP and Dual Credit classes, but select teachers do not teach the class efficiently. Content is rushed, and overall atmosphere in classes are average. Relating to the teacher subject, I feel as though some teachers are not adequately evaluated for their professionalism in the classroom. Many teachers delve into their personal lives during class time, and don't separate their home life from work life. The other percentage of teachers are very professional and make sure to keep their home lives private, as it should be. Other than those faults, Cabell Midland is an average public school in my eyes.
