The some of the teachers at this school are really helpful and also give really good advice on college. Most of staff are a bit rude especially Ms. Selina right when I walk in into her office I know hell is coming my way. Anyways some of the people at this school are really cool but, some of them are a pain in the butt. The food at this is really nasty but, I mean its like any other school BUT, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich SLAPS! That thing goes hard.

At CIMS the overall feeling of the campus is pretty average except for the fact that most kids get bullied there and the workload is so great that kids are starting to have depression over how much stress is on them. The school is more worried about the dress code than the actual education sometimes. Although this school does have a great support system, in my opinion, and the teachers really push the students to get their work done and put an honest effort into making sure all the students understand the work and address issues where need be, also the teachers are very kind and understanding in regards to a student's situation albeit it be with home or other things. They not only want us to succeed in our careers but also make that we are okay mentally and emotionally.
As a 6 year student at cims, I have learned a lot about my school and I’ve really watched it grow into a more successful and well developed campus. I was a student at cims it’s pilot year, and now I can really look back and compare the changes the school has made. Cims is a very safe and welcoming campus that focuses on the well being of its students and families . The teachers and staff truly look out for their students and their well being to ensure them the education they need in order to be ready for college . All the teachers try to get involved with their students and their daily activities in order to really get to know their students and help them out with any issues they’re having . The students themselves are well educated and well prepared for college and their future professions thanks to the level of preparation this school provides.
