It has a lot of school spirit and is always working to improve it as well which really contributes to the school unity and student bonding. The teachers are also really unique and nice in general, however there are a couple teachers that aren’t too good at teaching their subject. However, they are always willing to help you understand the material outside of class time. You get challenged by the workload and style or learning there, while also being reminded often that your grades do not determine your worth, so there is a healthy balance.

Incredible school academically. Like anywhere, there are several bad teachers but for the most part, teachers are wonderful, especially in higher level and AP courses. School atmosphere is daunting and there are sky high instances of stress and anxiety. Expect most students to have expensive tutors, though they are not necessary to succeed at CdM.
I felt this school prepared me well for my secondary education. Amongst the teachers and staff, there a few who are truly, incredibly passionate about their work and improving the lives of young students. While the arts do not receive nearly as much funding as the sports programs, the artistic community on this campus is rapidly growing and offers great programs in music making and education. Parent involvement is incredibly high, with nearly every parent making some form of contribution, making it the norm of the culture in which the school exists. Overall, I thorougly enjoyed my time at this school and would hope that others feel the same way.
