Central Baldwin Middle School teachers, administrators, and parents strive to work together to provide a quality education for all students. We work to educate students using real-world instruction despite severe deficits in funding. This money could be used to purchase classroom instructional materials for the students, as no funding is available from the state.

Hi my name is Rusty,I am from Brazil and I studied 2 years at this great school(2003-2005) I just want to say that all teachers are really concerned about their students, specially me, who was from another country. I was treated with no diference towards the other students, and I wanted to thanks everybody who made me never forget this part of my life, even the people who did not like me, thankyou, and I deeply miss you all. I would like to get in touch with some of my friends, if any one see this I would be happy to talk with at this email messanger rustyrozante2@hotmail.com

This is my child's third year at cbms and I will be sooooooo happy when this year ends. I find that as far as extracurricular activities and teacher's approval it's not whether or not a student can and does the work, it's who the teachers like and who knows who.

This is my second year at CBMS. I would like to say if you have the oppurtunity to send your child here you should. Many parents say our school is dirty most catch it at a bad time. Our teachers are top notch and amazing. The new princapal Keith McClammy is great with the kids and teachers. Our sports center is super I was a cheerleader, volleyball player, soccer player, math team member and so much more.

I just left CBMS this year and wanted to thank all of my teachers for a great job they have done. Of course there are a couple of duds, but you expect that at every school. The assistant principles at the school are great- so are the counselors, if you need anything they are there. I'll truely miss CBMS and never forget the memories and friends I've made at assemblies, in class, and at break and lunch. You have lots of options here; like if you don't want to take P.E. you can be a teacher,office,snack-bar, or cafeteria helper. And 98% out of 100 the teachers are always there every step of the way. Thanks CBMS I'll miss you!

So far this school has been very disapointing. I expected a more cleaner teaching facility. I came to the school to pick up my child and saw that the bathrooms were horribly dirty and there was no soap to wash my hands more less paper towls to dry them with. Also my child has often complained about a certain teacher who constantly treats students less fairly than others.

I have noticed that the teachers seem to care more about themselves and how to make their jobs easier than the needs of the students. I have seen a lot of verbal abuse toward students from the office staff with little consern for the student's needs. There is a few teachers who do not fit into this category and care very much about the students and go the extra mile for them. But, for the majority they are just there for a paycheck in my opinion.

I was a student at CBMS when the school first opened in the mid 90's. It is a wonderful place. Great staff, wonderful learning environment, and many memories!
