Capitan Municipal Schools Reviews

3 reviews
Capitan Municipal Schools is school that has an overall average. During my time here up until high school was great. High School has been hard for me. The school needs to change their meal plans. The food is horrible. Everyday we have a choice of pizza or a dry burger or something else. The lunch ladies aren't friendly and the school puts most of its attention on sports not academics.

My experience with Capitan Municipal schools is probably different than most. I didn't find this school willing to deal with pressing issues such as bullying and education. This year will be the last year that the school will offer college classes which is detrimental to some of us. We will also be loosing dual credit classes within the school.
It's a great school. I haven't been there in a year so i don't remember that much. The staff there is very friendly.
