I just promoted from CMS and honestly it wasn't a great experience for me. My friends always got bullied and it always got ignored. There are absolutely no activities here either. TH The staff sides with the "cool" kids (kids that drank coffee and cursed) and the teachers promote cursing and immorality. I only give it 2 stars because two of my teachers, Mrs. Gibson, 6th Grade , and Mrs. Tincknell,7th Grade both had a positive influence on me. The librarian and the vice principal are awesome too. Another thing is that kids start cursing here in 6th grade and all the new kids have bad attitudes. There is no doubt that your kid either won't like it here or will become just like these kids.

Both my brother and I attended this school. While I promoted in 2007 and he in 2011 there was a huge difference in experiences even though we had a few of the same teachers. If the student is a well-behaved kid who wants to succeed, teachers will go out of their way to help that student. The down side is that peer pressure and bullying goes ignored. Teachers don't like confrontation and why should they? The problem is that my brother had a rough time coping with that awkward age and did not have the school's support at all. With classroom sizes increasing and cheaper real estate, the school hasn't had time to adapt and it shows. Also, academically, this school is definitely not the best and will frustrate a more academically oriented student with its pace.

This school is one I would not recommend. If you have a problem, don't bother going to the principal, he will always side with his staff and not hear you out. He has been there way too long and they need some fresh blood to lighten up the school.

I loved this school. It is awesome and I think that any kid who goes there will too. The teachers have a high-level of thinking, and the material that they teach kids is wonderful. The campus is big and clean, allowing students to circulate during lunch and enjoy themselves. This school gives out such a caring vibe from the moment you walk into it. It is inviting and I think that your child will love it there.

I love this school because the faculty and staff at this school puts so much of their heart and soul and care to ensure that the children that attend the school are well taken care of, and communicate with the parents as to the progress of the children. I moved from the inner city, my daughter was failing, since attending cucamonga middle school she has been plaed on honor roll. The teachers make all of the children who attend this school to provide them with a positive experience with their education and give them wonderful memories to last them a lifetime.

I have just recently enrolled my daughter, Caroline, into CMS and I am proud of this school. Going out on a limb and enrolling my child in public school after years of private wasn't easy but CMS hasn't let me down. My daughter has now gone from a B student to a A student. She is exceeding in math and getting better in reading. I am proud of CMS and their teachers.

Both my kids attend/attended CMS, My son who is now 18 graduated from CMS, and my daughter who is a 7th grader attends there. It is a great school with concerned, and qualified teachers, I am always informed of my daughters grades, behavior & participation by her teachers, and I love the Homework hotline which allows me to check that my daughter is doing the homework assigned for each class, that really keeps me one step ahead.

Our son just started at CMS in August, but I'm already convinced that it is a great school. The principal puts forth a highly organized program that focuses on student responsibility and learning. The teachers clearly work together to help the students work toward their potentials, both individually and as a group. We feel fortunate to have our son at this school.

CMS has turned out to be an excellent choice for my child. Previously schooled in private school, CMS is the conduit needed to bridge him to high school. The teachers we have encountered have been open and willing to provide extra help when needed. In particular is the history department for 7th grade! The department head is wonderful and brings history alive for the students! The school provides regular progress reports and all are available via email to disucss your child. The PRIDE progra has been a rewarding experience as well. I beleive the school has prepared my chold for the next step to high school.

I highly recommend this school. The music dept. is wonderful. Mr. Nalbach is a great teacher. This is my daughter's second year and I think the staff is exceptional. Parking is the only problem I have had. I think the office staff is overwhelmed with problems, but the vice principal/counselors are great. Try it. See for yourself!

I have mixed feelings about this school. My child has had some exceptional teachers in math and music, but some of the others seem to be just putting in time. Maybe it's time for some of those teacher to choose another career since they don''t seem to be excited about teaching any more.
