  • C. Milton Wright is the most amazing school I could possibly imagine attending. To the below comment, your daughter is either a (...) or (...), seeing as I have attended the school for 4 years and have not once been confronted with 10th grade boys pressuring me to buy drugs. she must look like a real (...) to have that kind of flagrant action performed on her. Also, (...) strict nature is the only reason I got into University of Maryland. The teachers aren't easy on you but that's only because they want you to succeed. The test scores are good, mainly because it's a good school.

  • my daughter has a health condition that effects her ability in gym class. well i called the school (i had a doctors note and everything) and they said i would need to speak to a guidance counselor the following week. so i called exactly a week later (today) and i was spoken to by a very rude woman claiming that they weren't in and that i need to go into school the next week, (i'm also a teacher, so i was working that day)and actually speak to them in person and it was MY fault that i missed them both this time, and the time before. WELL then.

    also my daughter has heard stories of drugs all over the school. she has been to football games to cheer for friends, when at the end of the game as she waited at the bleachers for them to get changed, some 10 grade boys shoved drugs in her hand and asked her if she wanted them and how much she'd pay.

    the only reason this school is getting any apples at all is due to the good things we've heard and the test scores.

    also, the school doesnt send out school lists, not even a letter saying there would be no lists, making school shopping very difficult until she visited a friend in the 10th grade

  • The academics is ok but the lack of security is a problem. My son has had numberous items stolen from him. I was told that I am not allowed to put my own lock on his locker. One of the items stolen was a math book. I am expected to pay for a book that was stolen due to the lack of security. I think this is unfair yet I will not be reimbursed for all the items that was stolen that I paid for.

  • This is just to notify your Athletic department of what I feel was a disgraceful act of disrespect and a dangerous situation.

    I am a parent of one of the JV Football team players for North Harford High School. After the game last night (10/4/07), and during the time that our team was exiting the stadium field, the lights were shut off while our team was still on the field. Many of us parents were awaiting our students/Sons to come off the field and congratulate them on their effort and win against CMW, when again these lights were turned off. Leaving this position very dark and uncomfortable. Of course this happened exactly when the last CMW player left the field, " Just a Co-incidence, I don't think so"
    Of course this made it very difficult to even see our players, where we were walking and also feel safe in such a dark environment. My mother-in-law whom walks with a crutch/cane almost stumbled several times because of the confusion and darkness. Also the bench seats set up for the visiting teams are also disgraceful. I must have picked out 10 splinters off my butt besides it felt like we were sitting in a hole and unable to see much of the game.
    If this is how CMW treats it visiting teams and with it's lack of sportsmanship then I would have to rate this school and facility with a F Grade.
