Teachers here are dedicated professionals who challenge students to meet the highest standards while supporting students in their efforts to achieve. The community is a strong supporter of Band and Orchestra, and the high rate of student participation is a major part of the success of students and the school as a whole.

Challenger MS is not parent friendly. The teachers are OK but the VP is happy to put kids in detention or ISS for practically no reason. The teachers (most) refuse to update the online homework assignments and use the excuse that the kids need to mature and take more notes. The parents need to see assignments every night if they are involved. The past VP had a clue and understood the kids better than any other VP I've seen. I dont trust my child will be ready for HS with this MS

Challenger Middle School is a place where students are pushed to do well, where the students and staff work as a team for the good of the school and where high expectations and high achievement are at the forefront of the school experience. The teachers are dedicated and caring. They take advantage of professional development opportunities so as to keep abreast of the changes that are happening in education, such as Common Core and Next Generation Science.

I am thoroughly disappointed in the total lack of feedback that the teachers give to the parents. It's not just one teacher, but all of my son's teachers fail to let me know if/when my child is behind in class. This is unacceptable to me. Part of being a teacher is to make sure that the students are keeping up, and if that is not the case - the teacher should reach out to the parent(s). I should not find out after the fact. The next step will be discussing these issues with the Principal.

This is a great school. Good education, and the teachers push us to the very tip of the peak to help us real our most important goal in life. I am glad that I am a part of it.

Currently I have one child enrolled in 7th grade and one who graduate from Challenger. My high school student was well prepared by Challenger for what is expected in high school. My 7th grader requires some additional tutoring due to dyslexia. The staff is very supportive and if you reach out to them they are very responsive. Yes, they require students to have their PE clothes but that is essentially part of their homework. They are no longer babies and are being prepared for their futures. Being prepared for class is part of this. They do have a zero tolerance policy for bullying which is strictly enforced, as are several other rules. I have met with office staff on different occasions and have found them to be strict but fair and reasonable. Keep in mind when reading these reviews that there are 2 middle schools in town and for some reason there is quite a rivalry between them but once they are at the high school no one (teachers or students) cares which middle school anyone went to. Overall, Challenger is doing a great job ushering students out of elementary and in to high school.

Challenger has been a great school for my kids. Yes, they are strict when it comes to PE Uniforms, lunch lines, etc. But it is a high achieving public school with approximately 1100 kids in attendance. If they didn't have rules it would be completely chaotic. It did a great job of preparing my kids for high school.

This school sucks. First of all, these teachers can put you in detention for anything even for the most stupidest reasons. The teachers are rude and inconsiderate here. There is a big bullying issue here. One time, there was even a fight between these two girls and everyone surrounding them didn't do anything! The teachers would ridicule a student in front of the whole class, and everyone of course would laugh. PE teachers are very strict on wearing your uniform and will most likely drop you down by one letter grade if you aren't wearing the correct WHITE SOCKS and for girls with long hair, they'd get in trouble because they forget to bring a HAIR TIE. Parents, if you are deciding between Challenger and Wangenheim, please enroll to Wangenheim, the best decision ever for my child.

My son really likes this school. The teachers are very supportive and office staffs are so nice and helpful. The leadership of the Principal is great.

We requested for my son to this school. We went to their orientations, cats camp, etc...everything sounded excellent! WRONG!!! This school is over rated! My son has always been an excellent student, always staying on task, and well informed of all the school work. Since being at this school, its been nothing but problems. First, on the 2nd wk of school, he forgets his PE uniform. We take it to him, and bc it's an "inconvenient" to those in the office, they get punished by doing lunch clean up. We called to speak with the Principal, and she doesnt even know the rules on that. 3rd wk of school, his first time getting cafeteria food, he steps ON a red line, and he was again, put on lunch clean up! This is the final straw for me. My son got his first lunch detention, along with a few other students for not turning in their assignments on time. They didn't know the due date bc their teacher never told them, and the teachers response was, "you should've checked the website!" This school relies highly on computers to get anything done. They don't send home outlines for homeworks or projects, and everything is "online" or in their planner. GO TO WAGENHEIM, DO NOT GO TO CHALLENGER!

Our experience with the teachers have been frustrating along with school staff. My child had issue with bullying and was seemed to be tolerated by school officials. When obtaining progress of your child from the teachers, we didn't get a response or was told to remind them to check on the childs progress. There is lacking of responsibility or care for the students. The school's quality has changed since prior principal, Mr. Wong has left. We sent our child there as we heard great things from parents and teachers. VERY disappointed in this school.

This school is awesome! The principal is a great disclipinarian (which is what middle schoolers need). The entire staff is awesome, they really seem to care about getting all the kids to the next level, there is a lot of after school support for those that need it A very positive learning environment whether your kid is a brainiac or is struglling to stay at grade level. I had both types go thru this school, my seminar daughter ended up at UCSD and still wants to come back and say Hi to the teachers that made a big impact. My 7th grader struggles and there is a lot of support to keep he on track.

School is above average, definitely not exceptional though. Students have opportunities, such as class trips, but have to seek out the experiences to enhance classroom learning (parents have to pay for these extras though). Some good teachers, many mediocre teachers.

I have 2 children currently attending CMS. We love the school. We do have the same issues though with sporting programs. Coming from a state where there are huge sporting programs starting in 7th grade its discouraging that this is not something they focus on in California. They need to feel as if they are part of the school spirit but there is no school spirit because they have no reason to have any. No sporting leagues, no pep rallies, no anything that is encouraging to them. They go to school, they come home. Where is the building programs to bridge the two. In the middle schools from our previous areas we had basketball, softball/baseball, football, track and field, soccer, and cheeleading to name a few. The staff is awesome though and we are thankful for their help and guidance in the educational field. They just need sports.

I had one son go to Challenger. It's a newer school and was well run. Academically improving, it already has some of the best standardized test scores in san diego county. Located in a better part of mira Mesa, this is a good choice for your Child.

I guess public school is public school, but even so we had hoped for more from Challenger.

Posted January 25, 2006

The quality of this school has declined somewhat, with the loss of long time principal Sam Wong to the county school system, and with the passage of 'No Child Left Behind' so now several busloads of children from other areas arrive each morning full of typically less-well performing kids. There has been a big increase in discipline problems over time....but this is likely happening all over with this busing-in policy.

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.
