This school values good grades and success. The students who choose to succeed will be given the right resources, help, and encouragement to do so. There are people who choose to ignore the importance of school, but if you don't mind them you will do great. The remodeling makes the school much more modern and clean. Some teachers are given a bad reputation at the school but most of them make the school as great as it is.
I've just started the school, and I find it very interesting. I'm not saying that it is the best middle school in Santa Clara, but I'm saying that it is alright. People say that the school is ratchet and ghetto, but only some people are. That is caused because of the way that they are raised.
Bullying is the hottest topic at this school. Your child will not be happy here, unless of course they are the one bullying other people
I love that school, my doughter is so happy to have all her friends here. Cabrillo school offering lots of sports program I love it.
This is a terrible school. Teachers has no passion to teach kids and bullies is an ongoing problem.
This school is horrible and I plan to transfer my student to another school. If you have a child, please think about another school.
I have been a teacher for 17 years and I have been at Cabrillo for 7 years.. We have the best Administration. The teachers care and give 100%. I love teaching this age group. The sky is the limit for these kids. Also, the school is being remodeled, so the classrooms are nice. The fitness room is going to be out of this world. In addition, we have all kinds of after school sports and programs. Most importantly Cabrillo has a great group of students!
JCS is a great school due to the wonderful Administration! Lovely, people who really care about the children! Thanks to al of them.
I've been to JCMS for 2 years && I will stay until I graduate. I think they said Cabrillo is ghetto but they don't know that Cabrillo has great academics. I think Cabrillo is a great school.!<3

I currently a 7th grader. But i really don't want to leave this school!! There are greate people there, the kids are fun to hang out with and very nice. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!
hi. i am a student graduating out of cabrillo in june and i have been here for 3 years. i think that this school is fantastic. the teachers here are great and very helpful. whenever i have needed help i could count on a teacher i don't even know to help me get through tough times. i rate this a five out of five.
I love this school and its great and fun programs like all the sports and the yac that is right next to the school. We now have new cougar credit cards that have prizes depending on your GPA
From Teachers to Administration - this is one of the finest Middle Schools I have seen and this is why my son is at this school. I had a choice. The involvement and personalization and attention to students is phenominal considering other schools in the District. Academics is stressed, as well as issues and concerns related to the students and things non-academic. The after-school programs / athletics / City's Youth Activity Center (YAC) next door offer multitudes of options for consideration by both students and parents. There is something for everyone. It's a school that cares and makes a difference!
Hi, my daughter has attended Cabrillo since the 6th grade and now is an 8th grader. Her grades have gone from a 2.3 GPA to a 3.0 GPA and higher. She seems to enjoy the teachers and the school as a whole. It has been challenging for her at times but the teachers were more than willing to help. She is proud to be a student at Cabrillo school and so are we. She is looking forward to high school and post high school.
After transferring my child from a middle school where the police were on campus every day and my child feared for her safety, Cabrillo was like a breath of fresh air. The staff, starting with the principal/vice principal, teachers, all the way down to the office and custodial staff, really care about the students. The youth activity center is right next door, where students can go after school for homework assistance or recreational activities. Cabrillo is smaller than the other two middle schools in the district and therefore able to provide more individualized attention. We will miss Cabrillo and will always remember with fondness the time spent there.
I feel fortunate for my son attending Juan Cabrillo Middle School. He was accepted through Santa Clara Unified School District's 'Open Enrollment' process. His grades have progressed in comparison to last years grades while attending 6th grade in a different middle school. I am happy with the teacher involvement along with the school counselors.
