I go to cousins and it is not a good school at all. Number 1 when kids are getting bulled they do nothing about it, number 2 the searches do not let you go to the bathroom and if you can go to the bathroom there are kids vaping in there or in the classrooms, number 3 the teachers do not help you when you are lost or need help on a subject, number 4 there is too much dram there and everyone you think is your friend is really not your friend and they all turn there backs on you and you have really bad deprison because you have no friends.
I worked at Cousins for many years and am still employed by the school system. I can tell you that although we had our hurdles to overcome it is by far the best Middle School around. It is still small enough for teachers to really know their students and parents. The teachers are committed to doing whatever they need to do to make a lasting learning experience for the students! Everyone there works way beyond their contracted hours because they are dedicated to the students of CMS. I was honored to be a part of the CMS family.
My son is a special needs child, and when he entered the public school system, everything went down hill for him. The administrators have failed to protect my son from bullying. My son had been bullied by the teachers and then by the administrators, until it got to the point that I had to withdraw him. I would never never recommend this school unless your child is a great child, and normal. Otherwise, they will not be like, and if your child enters being the VICTIM, you better believe the administrators above will make them seem to be the problem. They will go to any measures to do so, and will cover up any/everything needed. The whole school system is KaHOOTS w each other, and will cover up what ever needs to be... All the good teachers are retiring, and hiring lawyers, and alot of them have left to teach somewhere else. I believe Parents need to come together and give these administrators what they deserve.... UNEMPLOYMENT!
This is a mediocre school at best. There are fights on a weekly basis and bullying is ignored by the school officials. In fact, the counselors held a special assembly to inform the students they were no longer available for student complaints, only career information. Teachers are hit and miss. Some are excellent while others leave you wondering, why they chose that profession and how they are even allowed to be in front of children. Since the school did not make AYP for several years, some teachers have adopted a policy of allowing only failing students to do extra credit assignments while the rest of the class is given a "too bad so sad" attitude. This discriminates against the students of the school as a whole. This has nothing to do with race but, more to mask the fact students are falling through the cracks here. This policy sets the example that not all students are afforded the same opportunity as others. This only personifies the fact that this school is only concerned with passing the failing students while the rest are left to flounder at best. None of the middle schools in Newton County are what any parent should consider as quality education for their child.
