Cape Girardeau School District Reviews

In my three years at Cape Central High School, I have fallen in love with how awesome my teachers are and how they will go above and beyond to help me out in any way. Also, student leadership is really stepping up its game to apply to all students and encourage all students to get involved. Central also has so many opportunities to enhance your God-given talents through sports, clubs, and academics! I love Cape Central High School!

My experience with the Cape Girardeau School District has been fairly enjoyable. The facilities are very nice, although the academics are not as rigorous as I'd like them to be. They have cut out many programs for excelling students due to budget problems. Most of the teachers are excellent although there are of course a few bad eggs that are not very knowledgeable about things that are outside their curriculum but still relevant to the subject. Many of the good teachers and administrators are leaving or plan on leaving soon. Overall, they are not bad at what they do but certainly have room for improvement.
Okay, I love this district and my school (Cape Central), but it has some problems of course: Favoritism, privilege, reporting of students from teachers who act like students, and underlying racism and bigotry. I have learned a lot from the GOOD teachers of the district from Blanchard- now, thanks to that, I'm not stupid. So, if you or your children would like to witness a Blue Lives Matter flag flown by the student section at a game, be my guest, but if not, sit this one out. Still #CT, #HateJackson (they're worst).
