I've grown up in the Keystone Central School District my entire life, and will be graduating from CMHS this summer. The absolute biggest issue in the school is communication, followed by polarization of the student body and an all around apathy from students and teachers.

Communication within the school is an absolute joke. The student government organization is constantly trying to combat this issue, but it seems as if the opinions of the students are not at all valued by administration.

The culture surrounding the school is also poor. There have been multiple cases of sexual misconduct within the school with no disciplinary action, and it just doesn't seem like a safe environment. Most of the teachers are nice people, but average or sub-par educators.

The music department was fantastic, the teachers genuinely cared for us. The school was millions in debt and cut teachers who genuinely cared for us as well as cutting classes that we enjoyed. The school put more money into sports than into our arts but that's pretty typical at a high school. The teachers I have had over the 4 years in the school have mostly cared for me genuinely by helping me with other classes if I needed it, letting me sit in their room for lunch to finish catching up on work quietly, and if we took a flyer to them with date and time of an event like a choir concert they would make sure they would be there.
I have not had a terrible experience at CMHS, but not every student can say that. If you are a student that is involved, supported, and active you can have a worthwhile experience and beneficial education, but far too many students fall through the cracks. Students without a niche or a supportive household can have a harder time succeeding than your Honor Roll scholar. CMHS needs to do more to support and care for it's students who haven't been at the forefront of their attention and have suffered for that.
