I think this school is pretty good. The teachers here and sometimes very kind and most of them make sure you understand everything. The students here are somewhat nice. and as long as you know how to keep out of trouble your set ! the lunch is nasty and some electives are super cool .


Posted May 29, 2014

I am a 8th grader at cms and i think the school is ok.Its not a bad school how people say it is.Some people are nice while others are rude.Most teachers are good at teaching.The lunch is nasty most of the time.


Posted May 29, 2014

i think Crozier is an ok school. its a mix between good and bad. if you know how to stay out of trouble it will be a greeeat year for you. some of the teachers here are cool and some of the teachers here aren't. the administration is really strict on breaking the rules. the electives are really cool. they actually have many things to choose from, like ASB, dance, art etc. i would really approve of this school if it was your last resort to finding a school last minute.


Posted May 29, 2014

I am currently an 8th grader at crozier middle school. Crozier is a great school to attened to it has programs such as: AVID, Band, Art, TA, Dance and ASB. There's also after school sports such as: Soccer, Baseball, and Basketball. The 8th grade teachers that i currently have care about your grades and put effort into teachings the students. They have both fun and educational fieldtrips. Overall, crozier is a good school.


Posted May 29, 2014

This school is sooooooo TURNT UP!!!! lol Crozier is fun but the lunch is terrible but the teacher and staff keep it 100 overall an average school :)


Posted May 29, 2014

i think that CMS has potential. the teachers here have very high interest in making sure each student succeeds in getting a good education that they deserve. the teachers can be funny and nice yet strict and serious when they have to be. the security is a bit to much for me, but they do have a very well understanding in keeping each student safe. the lunches here are bad, but then again which school doesn't. they have great extra curricular activities like sports,music,dance,band and even art. the principal is nice and does everything she can to assure the best for each student here even if it's bad in some students mind. the homework is hard and keeps us busy but also teaches us new things. what i like most about the school are the field trips. the field trips here are really fun yet educational as well. Some include: museums, parks, and libraries. they even let the kids watch PG-13 or Rated R movies, that are educational and the teachers send permission slips to each parent. the movie also has to be approved from the principal herself. in all, the school is great and i hope that each student has fun here to.

I currently attend Crozier Middle School (CMS) and I personally think this school is ok. For the fact that this year my 8th grade teachers are really awesome. My favorite teacher from all is English. Then it would History. Thirdly, Algebra and fourthly P.E.. Even though I have been here for 7th I made the most awesome friends. This school has very nice field trips to attend like Magic Mountain Six Flags, Holocaust Museum, Griffith Observatory,etc. Class of 2014 !!!!

My school is alright. Although, my school is filled with fake people and rachets. The teachers try their best to get to their students.


Posted May 29, 2014

From the 3 years I have spent in this school, it has been great; however, during my second year here, the changing of leadership this school has gone through, has made it very unorganized. But, in my last year as a crozier student, I am sure to say that I have confidence in my principle. The school site is very nice. The buildings are relatively new, and the facilities are clean. Everything is more organized than last year, but getting our lunch is a pain. This year, to get your lunch, you will have to wait behind a crowd of students-no, not a line, an actual crowd. It gets to the point where I don't want to get lunch and not have to go through the trouble. Other than that, the staff is very respectful to the students, for the most part, but that's mostly the student's fault. And the things Crozier has to offer are great. Like, band, art (the teacher is crazy, though), leadership, etc. I think that the academics should be higher, but I don't think it's the teacher's fault. The teachers give many chances, but the students don't take advantage of it. All in all, this is an acceptable school.


Posted May 29, 2014

I am a student at Crozier Middle School. I personally think the school is not all that bad, some of the school staff and teachers don't put as much effort as others but some students seem to manage to get through the school year. There is no perfect schools but there is also fights,tagging,bullying etc. It seems to be the school cares more about you being in uniform than your grades. This school overall isn't all that bad but is far from the best . Students also tends to be out of control in some classes and the whole class gets the punishment for only a few individuals .


Posted May 29, 2014

My experience at Crozier Middle School has been a pretty good one overall. I feel like I have learned a lot from this school. The teachers here are great. I can tell that they really want to educate their students to make them a success in the future(some more than others). Even though there has been around three different principles in the two years I've been here, they all tried to show some leadership. When I first starting attending Crozier, it was a better experience than I expected. Now that I'm graduating, i can look back and say that these two years have been memorable for me.


Posted May 29, 2014

I'm a student at CMS and I personally think that the school entirely is okay, but stay out of trouble with some people or else the whole entire year will be a pain in the ars for some of you. The staff/teachers are very nice, but just behave well and the school year will be great.


Posted May 29, 2014

I am a 8th grade student at crozier middle school and this school is ok the teachers are not that good at teaching some are, while others aren`t . The staff members are sometimes lazy and sometimes don`t do their work. The school lunch is nasty most of the time.


Posted May 29, 2014

I've been at Crozier Middle School for two years, and i have to say that its been a good experience. I met cool friends, cool teachers, and i got good grades.


Posted May 29, 2014

I am currently a student at CM, I am in 8th grade and prepared to graduate. We have many fundamentals here at CMS like Art, Music Appreciation, Choir, Dance, etc. The teachers here at CMS give us students a great chance to succeed in our academic scores. The people I chose to be my friends are great people and I'm positive that I chose well, some other students can be a pain but I learned to stay away from them. All in all, this school is great, but also has it's flaws, doesn't everything.


Posted October 24, 2013

This school is not meant for everybody but if you know how to stay out of trouble then this school is ok for you. Some of the teachers are nice and down to earth and others are rude and irritating but overall it's a good school.


Posted August 30, 2013

great school the best im a 7th grader the best amazing incredible nice cool nice vice


Posted June 4, 2013

I attend Crozier Middle school and I am a 8th grader. I would say crozier is a ok school to go to. Mostly because of all the fights going on and some of the teachers aren't that great. Some teachers are mean and moody. And the lunches here as almost everytime nasty.


Posted June 3, 2013

My first year at crozier was okay; I was a bit nervous but, turns out that the people at this school are very welcoming. I got to know knew people and made lots of friends. The food at this school is not the best; the teachers at this school are nice and chill to talk to (depends what teacher) well if your ever looking for what middle school to go to you should try going here at CMS.
