My 6th grade year at this school was awesome at first then as I got more into the school year, there were major problems; The students were always rude and truly ignorant. The teachers/staff tried, I guess. The assistant principal is okay, I liked him at first then once I noticed him 'nagging' on small things, all respect for him went down the toilet. The teachers have bad attitudes for no reason. You can compliment them or whatever just to get them to smile or whatever and they get an attitude. This school lowers confidence and makes people go home feeling like they never want to come back the next day. There were a few teachers I really enjoyed though! The GRC teacher is awesome. Anyways, I begged my mom to let us move. I want nothing to do with this school.
My son was receiving extra help for AD/HD in Elementary school. When he started middle school he was taken out of the program and know he is failing his classes. I can not understand who or why they would take this away and let him fail, I rate this school poorly in making the decision to take him out of this program when he is still under doctors care. Please think twice before sending your kids to Columbiana schools
As a past employer of Columbiana school. The leadership is great far as principal. The leadership goals is shown daily from the inside out. Teachers, administrative bodies are concerns about problems especially "bullying" is immediately handle. Parents are not afraid to send their kids to school I love columbiana Middle School where everyone is important.
The atmosphere is perfectly condusive to learning. Everyone within our school cares about our students and about each other. We operate as a family, but solely in tune to the needs of our students.
I attended CMS, and now my youngest is a student there. Through the years, the faculty and staff have consistently brought out the potential of students, and the teachers are excellent at tailoring their methods of instruction to appeal to individual learning abilities. On top of all that, everyone seems to genuinely have fun while they take our children from their 'elementary' mindset and help them mature in their social and scholastic skills.
It is a growing school and has come a long way, but could use some help with materials and rooms they need so bad.
Columbiana Middle School has excellent leadership in the Principal and Asst. Principal. Teachers are excellent, and this shows through their caring attitude toward the students.
I love my job at Columbiana Middle School. The kids are special and fun to work with.
I love the small town community! The administration and faculty are very accessible and open to communicate with parents.
I love my class sizes. Over the years I've seen the school improve in its consistency and dedication to student achievement in both academic and social areas. The administration is strict but the rules are aimed at student safety and professionalism. The floors are always shining!
The school provides great structure while allowing the kids to experience new freedoms. It has the qualities you look for in a small town school.
CMS is a safe and friendly environment where a student can learn life-long skills in order to suceed.
I love CMS because this school is full of dedicated teachers and administrators that go above and beyond to make sure that students are successful high schoolers.
Most of our kids are fun, respectful, positive, and unspoiled. They want to learn and be challenged to excel. They don't always realize just how wonderful and smart they are compared to other schools in the county, but these are exceptional kids who just need someone to believe in them and push them to be their best.
CMS is an academically challenging, safe supportive environment where students are prepared for high school and for a successful life full of learning.
It's a great place to work. Being such a small community, it gives a sense of family.
I'm not a parent, but I do teach at this school. I've been there less than 5 years, and there is room for improvement, although we have improved in some areas drastically. Right now, we are becoming overcrowded, our discipline system is hitting major walls in consistency, and we are making AYP on our tests. We have both poor and wonderful teachers.
