I was a student at Cabot Middle School South for both years (5th & 6th Grade, 2005-2007) and it was and still is a very good, safe, and structured school.

The entire staff at Cabot Middle School South (both 5th and 6th grade teachers) make their devotion, concern with improvement, and interest in education obvious by their organized programs, attitude toward parent involvement by way of offering activities that involve parents, and concern with child safety by Watchdog Dad programs....Cabot, AR is one of the few towns in America that offers a Watchdog dad program!! I vote for my child's school!!

If your child is going to CMSS make sure he or she is in Mr.Mehargs class. He is the best teacher ever. He teaches like we are really there. Trust me you wont regret it :-)

This is a fantastic school for my child. I'm a single father and a member of the military. While i was on deployment CMSS went out of thier way to ensure that my child was not only well educated but also that his needs were met on a daily basis. Thank you CMSS.

Before my child entered fifth grade I had only heard horror stories about middle school! Well I learned real quick CMSS was an excellent school! Team 5-2 last year was wonderful. The teachers responded everytime I needed information. They were always willing to help. My son had a problem with some kids bulling him. Mr. Shiron Took care of this problem the very next morning! I can't say enough!

CMSS is a school where the teachers and staff go out of their way for the students, as well as the families. Teachers go above and beyond what is expected of them to teach and to allow the students to enjoy school to the fullest!

This school has a very caring and dedicated staff. The students are well disciplined and well loved. Several annual activities are planned which the children look forward to such as: Frontier Festival, Space Camp, Madrigal Feast, and Rockin at the Hop. This is an excellennt place for a child.

My step child has ADD and is very hyper, when I sent him to this school I though that he would not get along with the children but after a few day's he had alot of friend's. Once I told the teacher's what was wrong with him, they tended to his every need when he was having problem. At the end of the day, when he would come home he would tell me that he had such a great day and that he could not wait untill he went back that next morning.
