Open Quote I'm currently a 7th grade student at Crabapple Middle School and I find that the school system there could really be better, one example of this, is that we don't use the lockers at school, and we really should! I carry at least ten pounds over the recommended healthy limit for my weight! (I really need to wrap this up because I have homework, and its a Friday, also I'm not writing this to be like all those students who don't study, get all the answers wrong and complain about it) Close Quote

Open Quote The admin is not happy to or wants to work with parents. They act as if they know the best for our children and they don't want parent input. Rako and Thweat act like elitist! Your students and parents should be worked with cooperatively not dictated to! The 2 starts are for the handful of really good teachers that were there before Rako! Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent I have to say that my child is very well served at CMS, however the new administration has caused the morale of the faculty to drop dramatically. I'm privy to more than the average parent because I'm very active in the school and am there several times week. The new principal is not respectful of her faculty and the result is that they do not respect her. I've had 2 children go through CMS and my 3rd is there now and it breaks my heart to see so many hard working, outstanding teachers feeling so under appreciated to the point that several have mentioned leaving or quitting.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
