School Reviews

I have been a student at Cambridge for 5 years. Cambridge has been a lifesaver for me and my family. They offer a variety of extracurriculars, electives, and courses. Cambridge actually offers "Cubbies" which is our daycare program. The "Cubbies" participate in all school activities and electives including Music, Art, Spanish, and Library time. We have all grades above "Cubbies" too. Cambridge also offers college courses, which as a sophomore, I greatly appreciate. There is such a family-like atmosphere at Cambridge that it always feels like my home away from home. Teachers take care of their students, and students take care of each other. Also, Cambridge has done a lot since the lock-down in March. We have been going to school every day since august with very few cases. All desks are six feet apart, we wear masks in the hallways, and we have daily health screenings. Cambridge is and will always be my home away from home.
