This is a wonderful school filled with an Administrative staff that truly cares about the kids and families. We have sent our kids here. We recommend it.
This school is amazing. I have to say, at first. My mom was a little on the fence about letting me go because of what she 'thinks' she heard. Then she asked a friend of mine and finally let me go. I was scared at first like HELLO MIDDLE SCHOOL?! But the 7th graders get a day without 8th graders to learn the ropes. The band program is amazing! Te end of each quarter there's a dance, but the last one is for 8th graders only because it's their last year. As a student I hope you take me advice because I've been there. XD. But for any worried parents let them go to the math camp to get used to the one way hallways and stuff. It's an amazing school and the ratings don't even describe how terrific it is. It's big on recycling! In still a 7th grader here but the years almost over. Hopefully next year is just as great. The education is great and it only takes a 3.0+ average to get honor roll. Hope this helped!!!!
I am a former student at Christa McAuliffe Middle School and honestly I hated it. At the beginning it was fine, fun, amazing, awesome! Then towards the middle of the school year I did not have fun. Teachers are not the best at this school. Nor are the kids there too. Bullying is a issue at that school. I constantly found myself wanting to cry. Kids are rude, judgmental, and very upsetting to know that these kids represent CMMS. If you have read most of the former/Presant student comments, most of them, have incorrect spelling. Luckily, I had a good ELA teacher in the 7th grade. Math and Science, I beg to differ. I struggled to learn in those two subjects and I'm sad to say, I almost failed. The teachers I had we're honestly mean to me. My science teacher did not know how to connect with other students, as I wasn't the only child failing. My math teacher, abruptly EMBARRASSED me in front of the whole class by getting one question wrong. The only thing that was satisfactory was the 7th/8th grade Counselor, Mrs. Mazza. She was the best and helped me as I struggled through the 7th Grade with teachers, and bullies. if you want a good Middle School, I suggest to not even consider, CMMS.
My kids have thrived while at CMMS. Principal Malandro and his administrative team provide excellent leadership to the campus. Together they motivate the staff, students and families to give their personal best. I'm proud to be a part of the Christa McAullife family.
I go too christa macualiffe and i have too say the teachers are great and the staff..my favorite teacher is ms.randeel for pre aglebra.I have the hardest time in that class but she always helps me(:
Christa McAuliffe is a great middle school! Randy Malandro is a strong principal-leader, now in his third year at the school, and he has a staff of highly trained and enthusiastic professionals. They take pride not only in educating children to a rigorous standard but also in maintaining a sense of 'family'--where every person, adult or child, is respected and valued. As you walk onto the site and come into the beautiful vaulted lobby, you will immediately sense the calm, disciplined atmosphere that prevails at Christa McAuliffe. In these challenging times, we are blessed to have a great school like Christa McAuliffe. (And it still has electives and a free after school program!)
Bullying is an issue at this school. As for discipline for bullying, the warning is fine by me depending on the severity of the bullying. My daughter has been threatened on more than one occassion with very little resolve, So bullying has continued. My daughter has a GPA of 3.88 and I give most of that credit to her home life. It takes constant and I do mean CONSTANT emailing and phone calling to get the teachers to update the PIV on a regular basis which they still do NOT do. As for administration, I must agree, credentialed admins, staff, principal, vice, and counselor have been wonderful. As for front desk adult workers, they leave a lot to be desired and could use some lessons in customer service friendliness,not so much with parents but with their own students. Extra curricular activities have a lot to be desired.
Its a great school they always give you oppertunitties and chances and help when u fall and always put the right amount of dicipline for what you did wrong
This school has had a lot of changes including administration, teachers and staff. It takes a lot to have so many different changes yet new paint or new people do not make it such a fantastic and or great school. This school has the same problems as any other school (fighting and bullying). NEW nothing does not compensate the fact that all school have the same problems. It is just newer
A school with a lot of potential with the correct leadership. Compassion and impartiality are missing in the administration. Great teachers, if fully credentialed, great kids and parents
The quality of the academic program is good. All my daughter's classes are like 'college prep'. They need more 'sensitive' teachers. They need more extra curric. activities. Students are very segregated in 'small groups'.It is a'cold' soul school.The schedule is great (starts at 9:00am 'till 3:15 pm) and they have a good number of elective classes that switch every semester. The new principal is very supportive & anti-'bully'.
This school is fantastic! My son really enjoys it. Keep up the good work!
Christa McAuliffe I think is one of the best schools. A school that you know is doing what they are supposed to be doing 'teaching our kids'. McAuliffe's administration is always helpful in ways of responding to parents, and letting parents know of events, etc. In academics the school is wonderful. They are 2nd out of 5 middle schools in the district :). I also love how the school is based on Christa McAuliffe and NASA. It is a good way to teach children. Keep up the good work!
My son goes tho this school and he loves it. The teachers are great and I feel that they do care about his education.I also love the fact that the school is involved in Space Camp for the 8th graders. A great school and the teachers actully get back to you to answer any questions.
This is a wonderful school, the best middle school in the Lodi District. They offer intervention classes for those working below GPA, exploratories for students working above grade level and the space theme extends from the classroom to the home. Good teachers, great principal and it is a wonderful learning environment for my child.
