Being a student at Cumberland County Public schools was an advantage most children don't get especially in larger cities. Post graduating we were given the tools to success, preparing each child for college with the high hopes that we would all achieve greatness. There are elective to which the high school students may choose from to jump start their career, like taking accounting classes, nursing and graduate with the certificate as a certified nurses assistant. The faculty and staff are dedicated to the parents and students higher education standards.
