Hello, I am a student at Chula Vista middle. There are many good things about our school the people don't really know about. So I am here today to tell you all about our school... Enjoy. One thing that is good about our are the people here. Others may think that our school is filled with bad people but it is actually not true all of the students here care about each other and report to any adult if any suspicious activity is happening so that we can keep our school as safe as possible. Another thing that is good are our teachers, our teachers try to help us on having a good education. Here you can get very good reliable friends that will help you when you are in need. Our principal Mrs. Gracias is very nice and talks to a lot of students at lunch time. We have have many amazing programs too. Dance, choir, orchestra, mariachi, band, art, guitar, drama you name it.

Chula Vista Middle School is a great school for many reasons. As a student I know that one reason is that all teachers are very supporting and responsible towards their classes. Teachers provide tutoring and Saturday school for extra help on projects and homework. Also, the campus is clean and staff that guards, does care a lot about preventing pollution in school. The classes are fun and do provide information needed for Finals. Most people know CVM is known for their extracurricular activities, which is why others criticize their courses. Although many people talk very badly towards Chula Vista Middle School, students and staff knows it is a very good school towards the SCPA program and their main course classes.

Chula Vista Middle is a great school. A lot of people think that this school is bad. But this school has a lot of programs. For example they have dance, arts, mariachi, guitar and more other programs. Also if your children always in his room watching tv he can go to Club tc before and after school. In club tc you can go to the weight room which is like a small gym. Also your children can join a team. For example their is soccer, baseball and basketball. The school has a nice enviroment and the all teachers are nice and if you need help in any class you can stay after school or go to saturday school. This why your children should go to Chula Vista middle school.

Greetings, I am a student at Chula Vista Middle School and I wanted to say a few things about our school. Many people believe that this school is not a good school when it is actually the opposite. Our teachers here help us and educate us the right way. They sometimes stay after school voluntarily to make sure we are passing their class. The staff here is also great and very helpful. Also, the SCPA programs here at our school are very fun and instructive. Some of the SCPA programs we have is orchestra, band, choir, guitar, dance, drama, and more. The students here at Chula Vista Middle School are very kind, help one another, respectful, happy, and many other positive things can be said about us students. Additionaly, there are many clubs for us after school. For example some clubs are Club TC, Kids Eco Club, Robotics Club, CJSF (the honor society), and many more. To conclude, our school is very educational and fun. Thank you, A student from Chula Vista Middle School

Chula Vista Middle School is a great school. This school provides everything that you could need to get a great education. Not only does this school teach you your basic needs in school, but it also teaches you performing arts. There are plenty of new things to learn along with your basic necessities like learning guitar, art, dance etc. You also have the option of learning a new language like Spanish and French instead. You could also learn a language for zero period. The teachers here are also very caring and nice. They make sure that every student gets to learn what they need to. They even offer tutoring after school and Saturday School. The teachers here truly care about their students and will do anything to help their students get a better understanding of what they're learning. This school is also really big on kindness and bullying. They make sure that absolutely every student is safe and also feels safe here. Overall, Chula Vista Middle School doesn't get the credit that it deserves for being a great school.

This is the BEST school I have ever been to! Everybody is SOOO nice and friendly and if the parents are thinking about going to hilltop middle pick a better school like Chula Vista Middle School. I like when they play all my favorite songs on Friday during lunch. This school is SOO cool and they serve the best lunches! Plus the school is nice and clean. As a student the teachers always encourage us and try to make us do our best. This is the best school year. 2013-2014. Date: 4-16-14 Time 7:02 pm ^_^

Gangs, drugs, and disaster. If you can afford 300-450 a month, send your child to a private school. Some are outrageously priced...and in our times that is hard, but check out Pilgrim Lutheran in Chula Vista. They keep tuition low and offer assistance. Got my child out as soon as I could afford to.

The faculty seems to just want to push their students through to the next grade level, irregardless if they are ready or not. I am disappointed to say that I think some of these teachers lack in their communication to students' parents. I would not recommend this school to your children.

If you want a school without a PTA and bluecollar worker parents go for it. Most teachers do a great job. Just the ones that can't keep order should be reassigned. No parents seem to complain about that. THAT is a problem!

I have seen that CVMS doesn't not care about the quality of education it suppose to provide. I don't think that the resources given to them by the state/community are put to good use.

Chula Vista Middle is a 7th and 8th grade well run middle school. The visual and performing arts program is a seperate cirriculum and a fantastic addition to an already good school. The school is part of the 'compact for success', which guarantees any student with an overall GPA average of 3.0 or higher from 7th thru 12 grade a spot at SDSU. The school is mostly hispanic ethnicity but a very friendly environment. My daughter and 2 of my wifes sisters attended this school and there were never any problems to speak of and was a good experience for all of them. They had a good education for that level and the teachers were willing to work witht them one on one whenever the need arose. Overall a nice school to be a part of.

As a student of Chula Middle I went to CVM in the years 2002-2004 and have enjoyed it! Its a great school if you want to be very involved with the perfoming arts. I had perfoming arts like Choir, Colorguard, and Band and was able to do all these at the same time and they have gave me a great experience and now I still have the same choir teacher at Chula Vista High which I highly recommend to go to for high school. Hope this helps! Academics are great there from my personal view and the teachers are nice and respect our learning system. Just listen to a student who went there like me. Its a great school!

As an 8th grader, I know that Chula Vista Middle School is a great school with exellent teachers!In my 2 year experience I think that this school gives stundents many oppurtunities.Chula Middle has before and after school activities including homework club.And as a school of performing arts it has a dance, drama, and art classes.And as I've heard, this is the only middle school with a dance class.Over all I don't see why no(future) 7th or 8th grader wouldn't want to go to Chula Vista Middle School.

The school is overcrowded and understaffed. There is little teachers can do to keep students safe and teachers have forgotten how to positively acknowledge their students.

I'm not actually a parent, my brother goes to that school now and I went to that school 6 years ago. It is a good school, the teachers there are highly qualified to help their students excel in each subject. The administratice office also does their job in keeping the kids disciplined.
