    "Throughout the two years attending Cardinal Heights I have created multiple bonds and strong relationships with many of the staff; I know that I am not the only one who can say this too. Each and every teacher makes sure they are doing the most they can for the benefit of the teachers in the best way possible every day and in every situation. There isn't one teacher in the school that has had a negative effect on myself, I can truly say I have taken away nothing but great things from all the teachers. There consistency of teaching, grading, and interaction with students never fails to be effected by the students themselves. They always make sure that despite the situation and people, they put that aside and they are professional enough to complete things in a great manner. All the teachers continue to have positive impacts on all students and they are always in the place they can to support and help students in whatever way they can. Their strive to become the best they can be, benefit the students in the best way they can, and to make students the best they can in any way; never fails to be amazing. Not only through education do they have a positive impact on us and benefit our learning to the best. Always being provided with the most technological advancements and the best resources to advance our learning, the teachers couldn't do more to benefit all the students in our way of learning. All in all, the staff provided to us at this school is the best we could ask for and they never fail to go above and beyond to benefit the student body and meet the needs that we need."

    "The teaching staff at Cardinal Heights Upper Middle school is a great considering the quality, unique teaching styles, knowledge, interest in students, and consistency in grading. The overall quality of these teachers is outstanding, as I have never had a teacher in this school that couldn't meet the expectations of their job. However, many staff members have different teaching methods and styles than one another; some teachers use real-world examples, some use notes, and some give lectures to get their information out to their students. This is a positive aspect, though, as it creates a diverse environment within the school day so that students don't get bored. Also, almost every teacher at Cardinal Heights has knowledge in more than just their subject, giving students a chance to ask about any of their inquiries so that they can make important connections during that class time. Besides the many academic skills of these teachers, they have great personalities with a genuine interest for their students, no matter how annoying they may be at times. Lastly, the teachers of Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School are consistent in their grading so that each one of their students can have the same chance of success as the person next to them. Overall, Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School is a great school with brilliant teachers who care."

    "For the most part the teachers at Cardinal Heights are considerate and genially care about their students. They are helpful and give students plenty of time to ask questions and gain a good understanding from that."

    "Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School is the best school in this region, and I would not want to attend any other school. My reasons for this are simple: the school provides many extra-curricular activities, the type of school is unique to many other schools, and there are many different class options. In this school, there are many different sports that all students are allowed to participate in, but besides athletics there are so many unique options for a student to stay involved. These include clubs like DECA, HOSA, NJHS, drama club and after-school activities like ultimate frisbee, student dance team, and so much more. On the other hand, the make-up of the school is different from most high schools or middle schools. Instead of being 9-12 building, like most high schools, a new high school was built containing only grades 10-12 and the old one was used for an upper middle school, which I now attend. By cutting the freshman off from the high school and combining them with eighth graders, it allowed students to better prepare for their freshman year by taking the same kind of exams and finals that high school students are taking. Lastly, in this school there are expanded classes offered to help prepare for AP classes. This year, as a freshman, I took Expanded English and Expanded World History. These classes were much more challenging with a lot more homework to set an example for what college credited course may look like. Overall, I am very privileged to have attended Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School and I hope more kids get the chance to go to great schools like Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School."

    "There are so many different types of things that we as students are able to see the great sides to so many parents. From athletic events to the non athletic activities to school pep rally's and assembly's; the parental side of things is always at it's best ability. These parents are there to provide support to every child there, they go out of their way to make sure that every single student feels 'at home' and comfortable. Personally within our school, there has been an out pour of care and affection shown by parents to the students and children of all in the most positive manner possible. There is no place better I could ever imagine going to school and being apart of the community and culture that is provided by our school. I have made everlasting connections with multiple parents and families that I could never have made without the community provided by our school. These relationships are made with many of the student body and they are beneficial to us all. I can speak for many and say that these relationships are ones that will carry with us through all of our high school years and even beyond then. Not all bonds you make through schools can be positive and usually aren't, but in the case of parent's, it is the most positive relationship and development I could have ever made throughout school and am so grateful for those. Our school is so unique because of the trust and relationship that is involved. Not always are we able to say we are 'best friends' and love every single person we go to school with, and that stays true here. Not every student is friendly and best friends with one another, but what is true is that all students are there for another and have a bond with one another. Our school stands differently from others in the sense of development and how we are as a student body and community. Majority of kids can say that they dread going to school and that they don't like it, but I can honestly say school is something I look forward to and truly enjoy."
