    "While the school does have a new cafeteria, in my eyes, that might be the only good thing about it. The school isn't very inclusive. All they do is send out notices, use an app to send text messages to parents and students, and make phone calls home about reminders or behavior. They also promised air conditioning in more rooms, but there is hardly any change in that situation. The school does sport an honors program, but accept students with bad behavior in (even if they have good grades), and boot the good students, with good grades and good conduct. It's very unfair to those who want to work hard. The honors program, in my opinion, should be based on how hard a student wants to work. If they want to work hard, even if their grades are average, then they should be given a chance to be in the honors program and see if they show some improvement. Grades aren't everything - conduct should also count."

    "Cavallaro is a great school that offers students with academically/honors students to have the opportunity to take high-school level courses and the regents exam to enhance their knowledge. Although I think it would be better if the school had air conditioners to help the students to be in a comfortable environment in the spring instead of being extremely sweaty and relying on a fan to keep a classroom cool."

    "Through my years of middle school, and made an exemplarily amount of friends. They offered regents classes, and had a great academy program, and talent program. The teachers really made me feel like the cared about me, and overall I wouldn't have chosen any other middle school over Joseph B..Cavallaro"

    "Students are involved in many activities together and even though there are signs of peer pressure, you're able to ignore it. Everyone is able to communicate with each other well but there are groups separated by race."
