California Military Institute Reviews

By a Former Student on

I attended California Military Institute for 2 and a half years. At first I was exited but it didn't take long before I saw what was behind the mask CMI showed to the public. 80% of the students AND teachers do not what to be there. The school wants to brag about its discipline and uniform regulations but what they don't say is the school runs off of FAVORITISM. If you are favored by serant members of the schools staff you can get away with almost anything. On a daily basis several cadets uniforms were a mess but were able to get away with it because they were favored. Why have respect for a uniform when most of the staff members do not? The school was not ready expand but they did anyways to out number there competitors like "OMI". They ignored the more important details like class room sizes and achidemics. In two years class room sizes went from average of 20 to 40 cadets per class. My grand mother and parents attended the school when it was a regular JR high. The school still has most of its original buildings and equipment after 40+ years, yet they still expand every year. California military institute expects it cadets to think before they act, but they can not even do the same.

I attended CMI for 2 wonderful years of my life and absolutely love the military aspect of this school. It is just great and I've learned much about the military and I am actually considering joining the military because of it. The students and staff at this school are very respectful and take the military aspects very seriously. There is absolutely very good military bearing shown from every single cadet at this school, and although everyone is very serious and respectful at most times, it is just like any other high school/middle school (except for the fact we wear uniforms). And also just recently, the school is expanding from 6th-12th grades to 5th-12th grades for the 2011-2012 school year. In my opinion, this will be a great way to expand more people's education and respect for the military. The academics performed at this school are the best in the PUHSD, for example, the CAHSEE results from this year were a 96% average for the English portion and a 99% average for the Math portion compared to the 86% average of the other schools. And as for the CST results for the rest of the school, there was a 95% average of 600's. There is also a good variety of athletics for example, there is football, boys & girls soccer, baseball, softball, cheerleading, etc. If you would like any more information on this school or on the district, visit this website:
