I have been enrolled in Cumberland International Early College High School since being a freshman. Needless to say, this is a great school. The school is located on the campus of Fayetteville State University and as a sophomore, students begin taking college classes. This school has a program where students begin taking college classes early, to knock off a few years of college. The biggest benefit of this is it's free! Definitely give the school 5 stars!

My experience with Cumberland International was a complicated experience. It was an uncomfortable place, especially with the administration. The administration didn't really care about the feelings of the faculty and/or students. They would speak to them any kind of way. They would deal with situations in public and not in private, this applying to students and teachers. They would fuse and yell in public instead of finding somewhere else to address things. This would lead to embarrassing the individual in front of everyone, causing them more issues. But, I can say they had good academic programs and prepared students well for college classes during their Junior and Senior years.
Every school has its weak points, but Cumberland International really comes forward with the effort to make sure you're doing your best to be the best. While not every teacher is perfect, many of them came close. I wish I could say the same about the students. The school itself is amazing, but sometimes kids will be kids and it ruins the whole concept of highschool. I'll give Cumberland International a B+ because they know how to reward their students and have a good time. I just wish they'd take the time to look at every single student applying there very carefully. Maybe things would be less tense.
