    "I was a student in CMS for three years. The electronics rules are so unnecessary. You can't use them in the school at all. It's just so absurd and stupid. The school should listen to their staff and students about any kind of rule. But we as students could not speak up because we feared detention and other punishment from the dean. I regret not speaking up. When I was send to the dean one time, I was told I was selfish and cruel by the dean. I didn't even do anything to this kid. In fact, there was only one student that "pushed around" this other kid. The dean made me so nervous. I had to lie saying I did something to the kid. Because that is what the dean wanted to hear. The dean didn't do their research very well. The kid didn't even say my name or the 3 others. I was so shocked and so upset, I cried and could not go to my meeting. I even told the principal that I lied to the dean because I was so nervous. The dean never apologized for their mistake. That really hurt. I did volunteer work last year. I'll be joining "Cause For Paws" very shortly to raise money for animals in their time of need Does that make me a selfish and cruel person?"

    "Commack is extremely blessed. The parents are very involved and truly care! The teachers are excellent. My experience with the Middle School was good. The 2 elementary school s were friendlier, But I must say the guidance couselors and Vice Principal were very helpful anytime I needed them! We have graduated now and moved onto High School but I must say Excellent experience all and all."

    "I was a student at the Commack Middle School the past three years. I was in honors classes all three years. In sixth grade the student work quality was great in the honors classes, but I and other honors students have begun to notice that Commack Middle School just enrolls students that don't deserve it into the honors programs. The academics are great, along with all the scores on state tests, but I feel that the support program is lacking for some students. Teachers and guidence concelors favored some students over others. Although Commack Middle School is a great academic school, the teachers don't exactly know how to give the students much slef esteem during theese crucial years. Also, the 'three houses' system is almost premoting the fact that students shouldn't get to know other students and should only stick to getting to know a certain group of kids."

    "This school once was an excellent school but has deteriorated academically over the years. Three tracts were once provided to optimize a child's academic abitlity. Now, they only offer a one track fits all 700 plus students (that's per grade) except math and science which have an honors track as well as regular. The parents are too busy to notice what has happened to the academics at the school. They spend much time reviewing for state tests because those scores are in Newsday."

    "The Honors classes offered at Commack Middle School are not truly 'Honors' quality. CMS is a microcosm of the entire school district. Large in size, its multiple layered bureaucracy prefers to maintain and defend the status quo, which is unfortunate for the children passing through it. Commonly, teachers will tailor their classroom activities and homework to prepare their students for upcoming standardized tests. Given the strong demographics of the student body, scoring well on these tests is not a laudable achievement. The school district lacks imagination and adaptability. If you have a bright child, look elsewhere."
