My family is moving to the Doak area. We are in the Chuckey-Doak Middle School zone. Anyone have any thoughts on the school? If so, what is your experience with the school academically and athletically? Also, do you have a child there or how do you know?

Most of the schools in Tennessee are substandard to the rest of the nation. This is a shame. This being said Chucky Doak Middle and High Schools are perhaps the best in the area. The curriculum, dictated by the state perhaps, is about a year behind the rest of the nation; but, perhaps a year ahead of the surrounding schools.
The administration at Chucky Doak is great. I like the Principal and Vice Principal very much. They are supportive and willing to help as best as they can. This is important since there are a lot of new teachers this year. There is a lot of focus on teachers now days. The focus should be on the administrators since the teaches must do what the administrators direct if they want to keep their jobs. Quality administrators are far more important than quality teachers. A good administrator makes a bad teacher good and good teachers the best. CDMS has some of the best administrators in the county as well as some of the best teachers.
How do I know this. I have children in the district. One of my children was at least a grade behind. Now, in high school, she is taking advanced math and other higher courses. All things considered my child has an excellent education because of CDMS.
