If I can take out stars I would.. I have never had a school be so bad with communication. It's only been the 2 week of school and my child has complained about how bad the kids are. The are defiant, rude, disruptive and the teachers do absolutely nothing to stop it. The only thing they are worse at is communicating. Highly disappointed with a school. With the name of such a reputable city in the title you would think they would be more on top of stuff. Would not recommend unless you are ok with your child being harassed.
My child has gone to CMS for 3 years and it has been a great experience for her. The principal is very helpful towards every students learning. Overall, this school is great and it would be a BIG mistake to choose another school over this one.
This school has done some great things in the past few years. My son used to go here, and now my daughter does. There is a new principal now, and she is awesome! She has instituted a friendly, family-involved environment, and holds the children accountable for their actions, using positive interventions and appropriate consequences. The staff is well-educated, and supportive, and the programs such as Music, Drama, and Sports are becoming the talk of the town. This school is really going somewhere, and it's where we want to be!
This is mt son's first year at CMS. We love the school, the principal is such a great person, he attends Citizen School, the after school program at CMS, there are a great gruop of people too.!!
This is our first year at CMS. I have a 5th grade son going. He is loving CMS. He has been on the cross country team and had a wonderful experience. He is currently in the after school program and loving it. The teachers have been wonderful and easy to communicate with via e-mail. He loves going to school and has florished socially and academically. He also is having a great time in the band program. He has had no negative experiences with other children or adult. We are very happy to be attending CMS.
I was very worried about having my daughter attend this school after reading some of the reviews posted here. To my surprise, we have had a very positive experience so far. The principal is great and seems very involved. The teachers have been supportive, and have been very responsive each time I've contacted them. They also have a problem called 'Excell' that groups students by ability and offers advanced students a chance to be challenged in the classroom. My daughter came from outside the district and I was afraid that she would have trouble adjusting socially. However, she really loves the school and has made friends easily. I check with her daily to ask about problems/bullying and so far she has not witnessed or experienced anything negative. Hopefully this school can start to make strides to improve their test scores.
This is my daughters first year attending CMS and so far it has been wonderful. She loves going to school. There is a new principle, Ms. Dodd, who seems to be very interactive with the kids and parents. She encourages parent involvement with the school and I think she is going to be a wonderful asset to the school. I feel very comfortable putting my child into this school and the teachers all seem to be great! My daughter says she loves all her classes and likes to go to school.
Bad kids, Bad teachers, Not much to say this is a horrible school, very unsatisfactory. Although the technology department is outstanding!
My son will be entering 8th grade and has gone to CMS since 6th. His siblings attended Rolling Hills and I was concerned about his going to CMS. However, he has flourished there. He's a straight A student taking advanced classes and playing sports. He's never been harassed and has lots of friends. His teachers have been very good about communicating with us--via email, phone, and even snail mail. He's my youngest, but if I had another child and CMS was the neighborhood school, I wouldn't think twice about sending him there.
My school is a very wonderful school. It has clubs, tutoring, and a delicious lunch I think that my school is a very A+ kind of scool.
I have two children that attended to Campbell and i did not like the principal she has fired every good helpful teacher there like the counselor my child loved her she actually understood them so i don't really don't like it because of the principal
As I'm reading all these good reviews I'm thinking 'They can't be talking about CMS in California?' I have 2 kids that attend CMS and it's the worst school my kids attended. The principal and the rest of the staff are horrible at communication with parents. The tone of voice that some of the staff use towards the kids is uncalled for. I'm glad you all love the school and I wish I had the same experience.
The dedication of the teachers is unsurpassed! Students are making great strides bot academically AND socially/emotionally. It's like a family here. Love it!
I love this school. My child did not do well in his previous school and has improved greatly with Campbell Middle.
We have been impressed by the quality of the teachers and their dedication to going over and beyond. The technology department is impressive. The school has a daily news program, run by kids, that is aired each morning.
Good programs for 7th & 8th grede students. I found that they do not have as many teachers as they should to help the kids get ready for the many classes thgt they will have in the upper grades. Overall I like this school and it was a great experience.
I am a parent of a fith grader and was very conserned about the my child getting mixed with the older children. The principal is great and happy that my child goes there
