    "I am wondering, actually I think I know, why parents of daughters think CAMS great, while parents of sons think this school is horrible. It goes, I think, to their policies, their over-zealousness to suspend kids for any infraction. Put bluntly, if you have a sweet little dear, hands on her desk daughter, you've got it made. If you have a somewhat typical middle school son who enjoys joking in the halls, cafeteria, or line with friends, beware. CAMS is a no touch, no humor, no fooling around institution where the most zealous activity is carried on by the administration and counselors who's detention/suspension ration I bet is at 100 as day.."

    "CAMS has been the bane of our family's existence since day one. Prior to entering 6th grade, my child excelled in her studies, loved school, and was extremely social. To see a child like this do a complete 180 in less than a year is frightening, to say the least. Since starting at CASD, her grades have slipped to the point that she may very well have to repeat 6th grade. She has become introverted. Her documented medical and learning issues have been consistently ignored by school personnel. Most teachers are slow to contact parents regarding a problem until it is too late to step in and fix it. They fail to listen to concerns and, when concerns are raised, the child is marked as a 'problem student' with 'combatant parents.' If you have the means, do not settle for the mediocre 'education' offered at CAMS!!"

    "My child has an IEP. He is consistently bullied by students AND physical education teachers (still works there) The teasing has escalated to physical harm 4 times this year and there were 2 incidents last year. Academically, the school work is not at all challenging at all and my child is an average student. A charter school would be the way to go."

    "My child is in the sixth grade 'overflow' group. Their field trip is five miles away at the local potato chip factory. There have been NO parent teacher conferences, and I have ran into a teacher -- with my daughter, and the teacher did not even know her name!"

    "Teacher quality is poor. The teacher to student ratio is about 30 students to 1 teacher. There are no extracurricular activities. There is no communication to the parents. I wasn't even told about an early dismissal. My student wasn't either. I learned about it from another parent later in the evening. There is no parental involvement. I tried to have a conference with my child's teachers. Only 2 teachers showed up each time. He has at least 6 different teachers."
