i was here 7th grade and i played on the soccer team it was okay . good things about crozier: the teachers are chill, SOME.some kids are cool made lots of friends .i felt safe at the school the education was good i am in asb they have laptops and elmos


Posted June 3, 2013

the school is really good. i do recommend it. ive been attending crozier since 6th grade and it has good education. (:


Posted June 3, 2013

I attend Crozier and teachers are friendly and funny but others dont even teach. One thing that I do like is that they offer a lot of electives like ASB and AVID. Staff and security are friendly but very strict so if you dont come on time you get detention or if you arent dressed properly with the right colors you get dentention. Above all I like this school because I'm going to miss my teachers, friends and classmates.


Posted June 3, 2013

crozier middle school is an okay school. Its not as bad as people say it is. they have pretty good teachers, many extra curricular activities


Posted June 3, 2013

I think that this school is okay. It might not be the best school, but it isn't as bad as people say. The teachers are pretty good and the staff at the office could be rude. the school does have many programs to help you and has many sports teams and clubs to join.


Posted June 3, 2013

I think Crozier is okay. Some of the teachers are cool and actually care about your grades, but then there are others who don't care what you have. Making friends is hard. Most kids are judgmental and rude, they won't accept you for who you are. Staff is somewhat fine, securities are cool, but most office attendants are rude.


Posted June 3, 2013

I attended CMS a few years ago and I think the school is alright, the teachers are mostly funny and cool also make learning fun. The people here are not that mean they actually keep to themselves. Some people and staff are generous and cool but the security here is way to strict like if your shoes have a little bit red on it they take you the office or give you a detention. The school events are great and fun to attend to, also the programs here are alright but ASB and AVID are the best programs to attend to. The teams here are alright but not that good we are good at losing most of the times. The technology is same like you see in every school so don't expect to be using iPads. That is the overall review for this school also I forgot to mention the mascot is a bulldog so yeah, I would give this school a 3 and a half out of 5 stars.


Posted June 3, 2013

Crozier Middle School is not a bad school nor one of the best, its not what most people actually think. Most teachers are committed to teaching their student the right materials, but the staff isnt as committed. The office staff tends to be really rude and not helpful.Overall its not a bad school. Besides the offce staff.


Posted June 3, 2013

Crozier Middle School is a very interesting school to attend. I been here for a year and ive experenced a lot.the lunch is not all that good. the teachers at the school can be very challenging if your in the honors program but then theres some that dosnt care. the kids here are sad to say but there not all nice. its been a lot of fights and drama her, kids selling weed, just a lot of things you shouldnt experience in middle school.all schools have drama so thats normal but its still tough. the staff that i associate are cool there are some that dosnt care and just here to get the money but others are nice and not lazy.if you choose to come here be prepared for the drama and messy kids.but overall it will be a good education. just keep to yourself. at the end youll be happy like me to get out of the school.


Posted June 3, 2013

I, being a student, believe that Crozier Middle School has its pros and cons. One of the pros is that the Teachers in general have your best intrest at heart. A con is that the schools aids don't respect the students as much as they deserve, but all in all the school has a great academic and social structure.


Posted June 3, 2013

After all the three years I have been at crozier middle school, I can say that it has been a pretty good experience for me because of all the activities such as soccer and I am in the band and it is good to learn an instrument. People have been saying that this is a bad school but for me, it is a good school.


Posted June 3, 2013

I am currently an 8th grade student at Crozier Middle School. The office workers are very rude and often give attitude for no apparent reason. When help is needed and asked for, the workers either ignore you or give you unclear assistance and then get angry when you ask again. The use of manners are slim to none and most of the kids are NOT friendly. Involving school events, every year the Christmas program is the same. In 5th grade I visited the school and they have been doing the same dances and programs since then.The honors classes and teachers are very helpful but the regular classes are almost barbaric because they are so out of control.


Posted June 3, 2013

I attend CMS the school is okay. the teachers aren't bad there are fun some are very nice.crozier is a good school the pinciple teachers and ,administrators are always there when you need them. class of 2013.


Posted June 3, 2013

I'm personally a student here at Crozier Middle School. Most teachers here are nice and the school offers many activities and sports .The school lunches are not that great including the staff and custodian members. This school is not as bad as they say. Its just to many budgeted cuts that makes it low on supplies and essential things. Also many fieldtrips were canceled because of money problem including dances. Overall this school Is not that great.


Posted June 3, 2013

Crozier middle school is an okay in my opinion i dont like hoe most of the teachers teach. that is not including english honors. In my opinion the food is nasty and they really need to put more activities in so that we can get motivated to work and get good grades so that we can get good grades.


Posted June 3, 2013

Crozier Middle School is a good school. There's a few days when things get out of hand. Most of the kids that go here nice but some are not. The staff is nice. The tutoring is a good is good it has helped alot of people. The acces to computers is not that great because other teachers use them we don't get a chance somtimes.


Posted June 3, 2013

This school year went by fast but it had many ups and downs. Throughout the school year the teachers, eletcives, clubs & classes were very fun. Bieing part of the girls soccer team was very fun, although the season was over in suh a short time. Getting detentions and not knowing how many you have while being a eigth grader , is not the buisness. It is such a struggle , trying to serve all of them before a certain date .


Posted June 3, 2013

this school isnt as bad as people make it seem. The good things about this school are that some teachers actually true to teach, while others dont care.Another good thing is that the teachers/councilers/principals try to help you. A bad thing about this school is that the lunch food is disgusting!!! Also, this school has a lot of ignorant people.


Posted June 3, 2013

99.9% of this school's population is basic and I dislike them all. The school cares more about uniform than they do trying to get the kids who are failing half of their classes, or than the kids who are afraid to come to school due to bullying. A lot of the teachers can't control their kids and often give them authority without will. lol. no.


Posted June 3, 2013

Crozier Middle School is a pretty good school.I would give it a 3.5. The only thing that brings the school down id the behavior of most students. And its not cute or funny. The school is what you make it.
