"I just started sixth grade this year right after winter break. This school seems to always be very clean and tidy. In my opinion I think the uniforms will help kids to not make fun of other kids and less kids will get dress coded. Moving on, the teachers are very well educated and most of the kids understand. The choir program is amazing and the teacher Mrs. Ricci is super nice! I am currently in choir and it is really fun. Also if your a fifth grader some of the teachers you will want are Mr. Winder and Mrs. Thurmond those two teachers are very clean, tidy, well educated, and organized. I look forward to spending all three years at this school. Have a nice day."
"The school is void of Artwork, The rules are archaic and many lack any reasonable explanation of why they exist. Teachers ate as un-creative as the general physical environment of the school suggests. Communication with between the teachers and the parent's of students is non-existent. Las Vegas is generally a transient community where people move to find employment in the hospitality industry and the school takes advantage of this demographic by providing minimal activities for the students, which does not center around the three R's creating an environment that is more representative of a prison than a place that fosters creativity and learning. It is overcrowded and students are quite easily lost in it's hallways. Schools are supposed to be preparing our youth to be good citizens as well as competitive in the global economy. I do not feel that the school has the ability to do either. The Teachers are burned out, Administrative leaders seem to be as well. This does however seem to be a systemic problem filtering throughout many schools in the Clarke County area. The City of Las Vegas while having the financial resources to improve these schools they choose not to."
"I just started attending Cadwallader this year as an 8th grader, and I already love it here. Yes, there are some faults (which are completely understandable, they just irk me a bit) including not being able to wear sweaters in class, even if its cold, and the entire "uniform" thing. I understand that without it, there would be unnecessary bullying, although wherever you go, there's going to be bullying. Some of the factors of the uniform are really unnecessary as well, like how the jeans can't even be slightly faded. Moving on from the attire, the staff at Cadwallader is top notch. For you soon to be 8th graders, know that you're lucky if you get Mr.Mesenburg and/or Mr.Farmintino as teachers, because they're wonderful, funny, caring teachers. I know I'm receiving excellent education, and the work they give out isn't mind-bogglingly difficult, its challenging, which is perfect. There are advanced classes as well. The teachers are very involved and care about their students' education. I'm in choir, and even Ms.Ricci, the choir instructor is doing her job right. So, on a final note, if you're thinking about joining CMS, do it asap, because its one of the best schools you'll go to."
