My child went to this school and was bullied for months. The teachers were told. They addressed the kids then ignored situation. The situation was brought to principal Owens, and he ignored the situation and did nothing about it. My child has now been seeing therapists, etc. The kids are there to learn and be safe. Not at this school.

My son has been bullied from day 1, slapped in the back, hit with a ball at least twice, stabbed with a pencil once by a girl and numerous verbal insults from other kids. He knows Karate and kickboxing but refuses to fight and goes to report to the office everytime someting bad happens. Up to now nothing has been done, I was told by the Assistant Principal something is being done. Maybe something is being done. But when a a girl student stabs another student unprovoked just because my son said "this school is full of mean people" and returns to school the next day as if nothing happens? Is something really being done? Before I forget, his P.E. shirts have been stolen, twice withing two weeks.

As a former student at Mission Middle School i have to say that this school is one of the best schools i have ever gone to. The teachers are great and they respect the students. When i graduated in 2008 it was one of the sadest days ever cause i knew i wasn't going to see my friends again because i was moving to Cypress.

Mission Middle School is such an awesome school. When I promoted in 2006 I did not want to leave. I still miss all of my 7th and 8th grade teachers.

Mission Middle School suffers from a lack of good management, necessary for any successful business. This school needs a good leader.

At first glance, based on test scores and student population, many parents are concerned about their child attending Mission. We were. But after thoroughly looking into the matter, we realized that many of our concerns were unfounded. We decided to take the plunge and enrolled our daughter for the 2002-2003 school year. We could not have asked for her to have a better 7th grade experiance! All her teachers were experianced and concerned. She was challanged. She received additional help when needed. She never had a negitive experiance with other students. She just flew through the year! I will admit, the school does not have as many of the extra programs that some of the schools in better socio-economic areas have. But I didn't need that for my child. I just wanted a good, solid education and a few happy times and she had those!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
