I am student going to calle mayor and i am in the sixth grade. I know all of the teachers very well though. Though the princable dislikes some kids and spoils others. I really admire the english teachers for taking time out of their lunch to help the advanced writers. It is a writing club fir those who excced in thatsubject. Some teachers don't disipline the kids and and just punish kids at random times by giving the lunch detentions. Some of the teachers are excellent and help the students with kindness. Over all it is a very wonderful school in deed.

after my son finished seaside elementary, a lot of the mothers were going to home school or send there kids to private school rather than send them to Calle Moyor middle school. I thought they were nuts. but this school proved me wrong. this is a one size fits all school. if your child does not fit the size, too bad. staff does not care and will do nothing to help your child out. they won't even return emails or phone calls. my youngest son will be going to private school no matter what the cost after the experience I had here. do your child a favor and do not send him to this disaster.

calle is a great school. i am a current 8th grader at calle and have attended for all three years. the teachers are great and they actually talk to each other. the principal is strict but fair and knows many of the students by name. there are many activities to participate in.

Very poor school. Moving our child to private school because of the lack of caring and teaching ability of the teachers and principal at this school. I was warned about this school by other parents so I guess it is my fault for sending our child there.

Just had a son graduate and could not have been happier with experience. Zero drugs, Zero fighting and everyone got along regardless of race. Lots of fun activities held at lunch by the teaching and PTA staff. My son felt safe and happy to go to school daily and that is #1 in my book. Teaching staff, although not perfect, was effective based on star testing results. If you are involved with your child's school and know their friends you will have a successful 3 years and these years build the foundation for high school.

Not very keen on students' academic and moral discipline. Too free to do anything, no rules set or enforced. Principal seem to have philosophy of let kids do what they want w/o restrictions.

Mr. Jackson is a very kid focused administrator and knows most of the student's names and spends a great deal of time in the halls observing conduct and staying in tune with his school. The teaching staff is energetic and passionate about teaching middle school students. It is a good school, just wish the facilities were nicer, including a gym, auditorium and grounds equipment.
