3/28/2012parentThe Cumberland County school system is a joke. The administration comes up with programs that cost the tax payers a lot of money but they do not teach the children. They rely on computer programs to teach the kids instead of actually teaching. Their SOL scores are below state average in most subjects over the last 3 years and the scores keep dropping year after year. Why, because the children are not being taught. Do a search on the net and you'll find that there are 1,067 elementary schools in Virginia and Cumberland Elementary ranks 1,028. I think that speaks volumes about this school system. Every year more and more parents are turning to homeschooling their kids in Cumberland because the school is not teaching the basics that they need. The school is setting the kids up for failure by giving them false hope that they are smarter then what they actually are. It is one of those systems that every kid makes the team and nobody fails. The Cumberland County school system will not teach your kids the fundamentals they need at the age they need it, and if you are unfortunate enough that your children have to go here then plan on teaching them yourself when they get home from school.
9/28/2009parentThis school is amazing, my two sons go to this school and their reading level shocks me. I've never seen such quality teaching in my life. I'm so thankful that this school has turned things around in such a short period of time
3/9/2009parentThis school is excellent. I have 2 sons enrolled at Cumberland County Elem., and they are receiving a wonderful education. The teachers I have worked with are impressive and attentive. My younger son who has an auditory processing disorder has evolved tremendously with their guidance and the close working relationship the staff kept with me when things were very rough.
9/25/2006parentWith the start of the Pre-K program a few years ago. Cumberland has taken the lead in the rural community area of Virginia. Getting a child into school sooner helps with there social skills as well a ability to learn. Where as they are still a very small school system there really seem to have it over the bigger county.
1/18/2005parentMy children are now homeschooled because Cumberland does not provide the education a child needs and deserves. When I pulled my children out of Cumberland schools they were in 2nd and 3rd grade. We had to start our children almost back at kindergarten level because they were not being taught. They kept saying my children had learning problems,well that's funny because they are honor roll students now and have a higher education than most of there 8th grade students.
