I sent my daughter here for 8th grade and it was the best decision we've ever made. The teachers truly understand kids who are creative and unique, and the school promotes and encourages students to excel in the arts as well as academically. The students that go to this school are pretty great too, and we did not have a problem with any bullying. My daughter loved this school so much and was very sad to leave. This school has got some SOUL, which I just didn't see at any of the other regular schools.

I'm and eighth grader at CPMA and this is my first year here. I have to say its way better than my other school. We barely get any homework, and I got into advanced choir and it's only my first year! Everyone is more nice and loving and I love that, and this school is very enthusiastic and my other school wasn't like that. In choir we performed at the padres game on the 24th of September. It was awesome. Well that's all, this school really is a great school.

I am currently going into 8th grade and I have to say, CPMA is an amaaaaaazing school in my opinion. All the teachers I've had we're really nice. Especially my choir teacher. She is the most wonderful teacher ever. Ever since 6th grade, she has become one of my bestfriends and you could trust her in anything. She doesn't just treat you as a student, she treats you like you are her friend. I've never ever had a teacher like that until I got to CPMA. Also in 7th grade, I was in ASB. ASB changed my life. Our teacher was hilaaaaarious but can be really serious and strict when she needed to be. ASB became my second family.. There was a lot of fights when i was in 7th grade (last school year) but I never saw any of them which is weird because apparently one happened right in front of me but I guess I was just distracted by something else. But honestly, I've never been in any drama at all and I hope it stays that way during my last year at CPMA. I've met a lot of great people especially my bestfriends. And I hope my new WEB family will just be like ASB :) Be The Change You Wish To See In The World!

My daughter went to CPMA for 6th, 7th and 8th grade. When I needed help, the office was always there for me. My daughter did so well there because I was on top of her grades and participated in her education. Best thing you can do as a parent is go to the parent orientation night. It will give you an idea of what our kids day is really like and who is teaching your children. My daughter went into CPMA without any knowledge of playing an instrument and has gone on to audition and move onto a high school that sees her skill and potential. She learned discipline and hard work pay off and I believe CPMA gave her the avenue to shine. I would let my child go there again!

I love the fact that my son is engaged in artistic endeavors, as well as academic ones. CPMA offered the first Creative Writing Class for a middle school, which my son has taken this year as an elective. He has learned so much, while enjoying the creative process. He is also having a great time in his Media Arts class, and has learned a great deal in English, science and mathematics. My husband and I are very happy with the education our son is receiving from CPMA and it's teachers.

My daughter started 7th grade this year and we were very excited! Unfortunately our excitement is over and replaced with disappointment and my daughter now has fear to attend school because of severe bullying, taunting and being beaten up 2 times in the last month. I've addressed the fights and the teasing with the principal who in my opinion has failed to punish/suspend the other girl s) which has made an escalation of taunting, and another fight! Schools should take all bullying seriously and protect their students as this is their responsibility. The last fight...which happened the day after daughters birthday, the school did not even call me to notify me! We are going to transfer....this school has turned into an emotional down spiral for my daughter who is highly creative. Sorry CPMA you are just a thumbs down!

Of all the schools I have ever attended CPMA is by far the best. The student and teacher bodies are diverse and creative, offering an open and accepting school experience. The workload is reasonable and classes are well taught by a staff that is no less than gifted. I highly recommend the school to anyone, interest in the school's STELLAR arts programs or no.

hi i am going into cpma for 7th grade as a noob and dont know what to expect plz help btw i went to marston :D


Posted July 11, 2012

I am going into my 8th grade in cpma and i LOVE IT !it has great teachers, for every grade. great guidance counslers . and great students. Yes their is drama and occasional fight , but what school doesnt right? if your looking for a school who has no drama && no fights. GOOD LUCK! lol but the students are very nice. they dont like group up in race like some schools theyr'e all mixed. and it's great. sometimes people get bullied but ussualy if i see it i always either call a teacher or staff or break it up myself. this school also has a great extra curriculum courses. for some reason the school board is making the new coming 6th graders take all of the extra curricular activites. i kind of wish that was for me . because i was put in something i HATE (trumpet -____-) but then in seventh grade i tried out choir <3 and i fell in love. now im in advaced choir :) i can't wait so hopefully if your looking at this school for your child i highly reccomend it <3

My son has thrived at CPMA. The majority of the teachers are very enthusiastic and committed to the schools emphasis on the arts, as well as to teaching. CPMA offers more electives during the regular school day than most middle schools in SDUSD. The quality of the electives is very high. This year my son, a 7th grader, participated in the Jazz Band and percussion classes. He has made great friends and looks forward to going to school. My son is labeled seminar by the school district, and I am very happy that we selected CPMA for him for middle school. He has done well academically and the arts have kept him engaged. I am a frequent volunteer on campus, and I haven't seen any evidence of bullying that has been mentioned in other posts. The school has an aggressive anti-bullying program with the theme of "Be the Change". I get the impression that if bullying were to occur, the staff would be quick to intervene if they were made aware of the situation. This school is for all students, those who want to have an opportunity to more fully develop a talent that they have or those who would like exposure to various classes in the arts.

I am a student at CPMA and I love it. Ive met a lot of really nice people, my teachers are wonderful, and they have a lot of good opportunities for aspiring musicians. I am in the advanced orchestra, we've gone to Disneyland twice and we've been to many festivals too. Just last year the advanced orchestra, band, and jazz band performed at copley symphony hall. Another really great thing about cpma is the amazing programs for handicapped and deaf kids. CPMA integrates deaf kids into classes for hearing students and hanicapped. I feel as a student that it is great to interact with the kids who've spent their whole lives in schools especially for kids with "disabilities" when they could spend time being treated like a normal person. Yes, bullying is a problem, but isnt that a problem at every middle school? MIddle school is the hardest times for many people in their life because its the transition from being treated like children to being treated like normal adult citizens. With hormones going crazy and all that jazz how could there not be bullying? Also as CPMA lets in anyone who attends many kids are "the wrong crowd" but you just have to find your way to avoid them.

THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL I HAVE EVER ATTENDED IN MY LIFE. I attended this school grades 6-8 and I am now a sophomore in High School, while I was here at CPMA I suffered through the worst depression I haver ever had in my life. I was contantly bulied and teased, the teachers did NOTHING to help me even while knowing I was going through this. The majority of the students here and downright mean, vulgar, and ghetto to say the least. DRUGS are a big problem in this school, and not much is being done to stop it. The teachers I had at this school were also terrible. They were mean, unhelpful, and down right rude to me as I attended this dreadful school. Everyday, arriving to this school was like torture, and the only thing I looked forward to was going back home to my parents, where I could get some support. Unfortunately I often didn't tell my parents about the bullying because I was scared. But now that I'm out of this terrible place and in a school I very much love now, I'd just like to warn future parents, THIS SCHOOL IS BAD NEWS. Any current students reading this, I FEEL YOUR PAIN, IF YOU ARE BEING BULLIED, TELL SOMEONE!


Posted July 20, 2011

I attended CPMA and I have to say that it was a great experience. Yes, we had many problems these past three years but I can honestly say that the school is doing better. Yeah, during last school year there were problems with drugs but that happens at ANY school not just ours, the drama as well. There are also NO kids on probation as some people claim. Besides those flaws that any school has, CPMA is a great school. We also got a new principal last school year and we're doing better. The school campus now looks better and we even got new teachers because previous ones didn't do well. The teachers that we have now are all great and people you can get along with. The parents are also very involved and have helped out a lot with fundraisers in our school. As an arts school, CPMA is doing really well. Our music, choir, and drama department are doing well as is our art department. As our school is very diverse we also have students that are hard of hearing that attend that school. They also have an ASL club so we can all communicate with each other better. Overall CPMA is a great school and I highly recommend CPMA as a middle school for your child.


Posted August 10, 2010

I used to go to CPMA, I have to say this school is very gross, the children there cause ALOT of drama, some times I would come home crying from some of the stuff the kids would do to me. Also the teachers and couslers dont do very much to help at all.the campus is gross and none of the kids care about taking care of their school. This school is great when it comes to electives but the drama is horriable and so are the teachers. I HIGHLY recommand not enrolling your son/daughter to this middle school.


Posted June 30, 2010

i am currently going to CPMA, or maybe leaving. there are lots of kids that take pride in good grades but more in bad grades. the kids are always picking on eachother and right before school ended this year, kids wer caught with DRUGS. not kidding eather some went to juvie. you dont want kids like THAT running around at your childs school... do you?


Posted April 19, 2010

My daughter brought her text books home at the beginning of the school year, and they've collected dust this whole time! She never has homework. Occasionally she texts me during the day, which tells me that they must not care too much about what they are doing in class. She tells me about other students 'french kissing' by the buses. Where's the supervision? I don't believe they enforce the dress code, and she has told me that some teachers 'cuss'. She loves the school...I wonder why. She won't be going there next year.

I pulled my son out of cpma in at the begining of the semester. He liked the school and his friends, but almost everyday an 8th grader was giving him problems. He went there because he has an art he is cultivating, but it wasnt happening due to the daily distractions. He is a 6th grader by the way. If it wasnt the bus stop it, was in the restroom where he was being harrassed. The staff does very little to help other than telling my son he should have ignored the older kids. If you want your child to go to a school where there are wild unruly kids on probation (yes I said probation) send them to cpma. The new school where he is at have enrolled over 7 more 6th graders because of the lack of control of the 8th graders. The staff and parents are to blame.

Many behavior problems at this school. We pulled our children out after 4 months. We have enrolled them at SCPA and they are doing beautifully! SCPA is a great school - I highly reccommend it.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
