Im a student there, And i love it im gonna be an 8th grader, i have been there since the 6th grade Its a very good school but the teacher mainly focus on state test. I gave the school a five, it deserves it All though it has ups & down. For ex sample: dress code, we should be able to wear sleeveless shirts not tanks or strapless but sleeveless(: shorts , not to short but be able to wear shorts This year we had to get landyards: i understand why but to get in trouble all the time no worth it plus we wasted lost of paper. Pericings: in the 6th grade we were able to have them and this tear we weren't why? Staff would make me take mine out every time every tho it was still healing i had a nose ring Staff: excellent Lunch: ok Teachers: fine but sometimes very mean Classroom: some time out of control but fine Those are somethings i thought i should point out to change or to keep in mind(: So thats what i have to say

This school does not keep the parents in the loop. If there are issues at the the school they send you an automated message. I never was able to meet personally with any of the teachers.

My daughter attended 2011-12. I was extremely disappointed with this school. She has always struggled academically and I sought help from the teachers she had last year on numerous occasions. I was lucky to get maybe a 2 line response in an email if that. I felt like the administration was more interested in having everyone pass their state test than to focus on the individual needs of their students. School in general has become just another "cookie cutter" institution. It won't get any better with 40-50 kids per classroom.

I went to Paige and I have to say it was an awesome school!! I was there for 7th and 8th grade, and got a good education and had a lot of fun. I disagree with the others on here about the bullies though. In my years at paige, i never saw anyone bullieing another student. The principal there is awesome and memorizes all the students by name. There are many avalable extacruicular activites including ASB, Yearbook, Club Live, Chess culb, the garden club, the scrapbook club and many others. I HIGHLY recomend Paige Middle School.

This school was not the school for us. He was put in classes that were not up to his level, he was bullied and then disciplined for it. There was way too many kids in the school. The class sizes are ridiculous. Now, the teachers he did have were good. The technology was impressive. But my overall feel is that the kids, especially the younger ones just get lost. We put our child in another school with fewer kids, smaller class sizes, tons of after school activities/sports, the level of math, english, foreign language that should have been given to her at CMP and she has excelled beyond belief--honor society all year.

This is my daughters first year here but she is doing great here. She likes all her teachers and I really like the fact I can check her grades online. The principal is a really nice guy. And if your sending your student here I recommend Mr. Christensen for math and science the kids love him and he is a great teacher.

I think thar Colonel Mitchell Page is a very good middle school. There are exceptional teachers and a great principal. My son has learned much more there then he did last year at a different middle school. I also appreciate that the teachers take time out to e-mail or call my cell when my son is not performing the way he should.
