Cumberland High School Reviews
Cumberland High School is a great place for students who are striving to learn. The high school offers over 25 AP courses expanding upon many fields for someone trying to pursue their dreams and possibly future major in college. Safety is a top priority to the administration, and many measures are taken to achieve this ideal. It is a public school, but disciplinary action and seriousness throughout the school year rival private schools. I love this school because they have given us Chromebooks (computers) for school purposes and has helped other students and I advance our learning by a tremendous amount. Also, the teachers here are understanding and are willing to help students who desire help. One of the greatest aspects of this school is how strenuous the teachers work with the students! The school has overall improved greatly over the last couple years, and will continue to do so!
The school is a blend of many great things, with a few not so great things. The class selections offered are great! The teachers are also good for the most part. College readiness is fairly good as well. Not to the not so good. The food is definitely subpar. The quality saw a rapid decline-which could be due to a provider switch. Finally, although the gym/wellness center is definitely above average, a dedicated athletic training room is lacking.
I loved the overall experience, the friendly student body, the well maintained building and of course, the helpful and knowledgeable staff. Although most of the staff was up to par, there were some drawbacks in the teaching system. For example, some faculty would not take certain students seriously or make sure all the work was getting completed. If they were stricter about this, I believe less students would slack off therefore making a better educational environment.
