The school's faculty members were great. They showed much compassion and interest in the students' wellbeing and education. The environment was also cozy and well-suited for learning. I also felt like the education in the school prepared me adequately for college, especially with the amount of workload placed on us. There were definitely intense classes within the high school, but I think they were needed in order to better prepare the students for college. The only aspect I would have changed in the high school is the size and amount of classes. The school is still somewhat novel, which is why there are neither a wide range of classes to take nor a sufficient amount of space for a school trying to teach grades 6-12. I do know that the school is expanding though and hope to continue expanding. With a larger amount of space, this school would be perfect!

I have been attending Community Charter School of Cambridge for five years. I like that the teachers really want to see you be successful in life academically. They are very connected with every student's parents to make sure that their student is on the right track. The thing I would change about the school, is for it to be more safe and open to students opinions a little more when it comes to learning. Not every student can learn the same way as the other student, so students tend to push to be heard. It is overall a pretty good school.
I wish the school offered more choices when it came to classes especially art and language. Art class is limited which is unfair to the students who actually enjoy expressing themselves with art. I also believe that more than just spanish as a language should be offered to students who might already know spanish or students who have other language interests. I think some teachers could be more connected with their students and help make sure that they’re actually understanding the curriculum instead of just forcing it on them. Some teachers just move too quickly on to another topic without half of the class really understanding what they’re being taught. The diversity and culture in the school is very high and the preparation for college is decent for the amount of work we are given but there could be improvement when it comes to teaching as if it were a college classroom and preparing us for that.
