Cairo-Durham Central School District Reviews

Cairo- Durham CSD is about average for a United States public school. However, they do lack in many areas. Cairo-Durham is notorious for their terrible sports teams, lack of using funds wisely, and poor attentiveness to their students. The administration caters to a certain group or "clique" in the area and many others are left out and have difficulty being a part of the school. They flaunt that the school is predominantly low income yet they don't do very much to help said low income community. Any funding the school receives is spent poorly. They plan on redoing the entire school instead of using it to improve the one we already have to better suit the community and provide a better experience for the students. Cairo-Durham has many bad things about it however, they have many great teachers that work very hard. The teachers are by far one of the greater aspects of CD.

I have gone to Cairo-Durham ever since kindergarten, but at that time I was in the elementary school. I have made so many forever friends but not only that the teachers I have became so close to over the years! And I still keep in contact with the middle school/elementary ones. The experience is what I enjoy and why I love coming to school everyday. The things that I would like to see change in our school, is the girls sports program. The boys program is excellent I just want to see better for the girls.
The majority of teachers there are fantastic! They truly care about you and your education and it is easy to establish a bond with them. They have an abundance of resources and are also able to offer distance learning classes you can take that are not taught at our school. The only thing I think would require change is the way in which bullying is handled. I believe there should be more involvement by teachers and students when it comes to bullying.
