While Cumberland County Public Schools offers more academic opportunities than surrounding schools, I believe this school could do much better regarding both education and other things. This school offers limited opportunities as far as clubs/organizations, leaving many to feel out of place and not a part of the close-knit community a school in a small town has the potential to be. The strictness input by the faculty and administration (nothing against them personally, they are all amazing people) forces some kids to hate school and turns them away from learning at an early age. While the majority of the teachers are kind and helpful, the school system as a whole could be doing a lot better.

Cumberland is a very small school. The teachers were great but there were not very many cool classes offered. I would lile to see more social science classes offered here. The diversity was terrible in the school systems. I would have liked to see more diversity. I played many sports and, in my opinion, none of them except wrestling did much to help improve the student athletes. The food was absolutely terrible and ledt me still hungry if I didn't get extras or ask friends for food. My experience at this school was not very challenging and I feel they should try to focus more on challenging students and preparing them for college educationally.
Cumberland is very diverse, but other than that it doesn’t have much going for it. The administrators don’t talk to students, the community is poor, and most councilors are too busy dealing with freshman fights to actually help the upper class man. Some of the teachers are nice and if their young the education system hasn’t ruined their outlook on life and they still care about the students. Definitely go into DE classes if you can as the teachers usually care in those courses and the students aren’t as annoying.
