Love this school! Leadership and teachers are excellent. Very good academic content and pace. The student body is a very nice group of kids. Could not be more happier with Castle Rock Middle!
My daughter just transferred here from one of the feeder elementary schools. They made the transition really easy. She attended New Beginnings, and the 1st day was basically just hanging out, adjusting, and having fun. One thing that she doesn't like at all is team 7C/8A. The teachers are great, and she couldn't ask for better. But 7C is completely isolated from the rest of the 7th grade (different floors, different lunch, different teachers). The 8th graders do not pick on them, since they do NOT tolerate bullying. This school is wonderful, and she adjusted easily. I couldn't ask for any better!
We are new to the district and to CO this year and I think CRMS is an excellent school. My daughter has fit in and has done very well academically this year.
My granddaughter was a new student at Castle Rock Middle in the fall of 2009. I have had the opportunity to visit the school several times for events my granddaughter was participating in. She has become very active in different activities at CRMS. It was easy for her to make friends and she is excelling academically.
My granddaughter moved from Omaha to Castle Rock in 2009. She made friends right away in school. She had been sad about having to move, but has been very happy in Castle Rock Middle School. She is doing very well there and enjoying several activities.
This school is not as bad as these parents state. There is not an immense drug problem. I made friends very easily, but cliques are present as they would be in any school. Most teachers are magnificent.
i am a student at CRMS but will be moving on to CVHS in the fall but i had a gret exerience at CRMS. the teachers are great and really wanna help u learn
My sons attended this school for a mere month and then I transfered them to a better school. The grading scale of 1-4 is to keep the kids from being hurt by an 'F'. But doesn't provide positive feedback for 'A' students. The administration does not welcome feedback. The principal is very hands-off! The district should be ashamed at the performance in math.
I have not been impressed by this school. The 1-4 grading system is bizarre. I'm used to schools where parent input is sought and welcomed, but that is not the case at CRMS. My daughter made friends easily, but I've heard from her as well as other parents that there's a pretty serious drug problem at this school. We're looking at transferring to another school for 8th grade.
I absolutely love going to Castle Rock Middle School! Everyone is very friendly, and it's so easy to make new friends!!!
We moved to Castle Rock this past summer and have a daughter attending CRMS. Our daughter really enjoys the school and states the kids are very nice. She has had no problems finding new friends. Most of her teacher experiences have been very positive and I'm impressed by how much interaction there is between teacher and parent. I strongly recommend this school.
I am a former student at CRMS, and I personally didn't enjoy my time there. Cliques are unbelievably cruel, and the teachers decide to go the 'kids will be kids' policy. I only saw the principal around in the halls occasionally, but I never heard him speak once the entire 2 years. While the classes were good, and I was well prepared for high school, the environment is not that great.
I loved the new student orientation program. This allowed all the new Kids to gothe day before school started to learn the school and bond. The majority of my kids friends came from that program. I was really impressed with that special touch. CSMS is a closeknit hands -a school where parents are always present. There is a club or activity for all kids to join. My kids were lucky to join their special cultural diversity club. I really like that most kids can ride their bikes to school. That is great!
I've had better communication with the teachers and administrators in this school than any other my children have attended. The raport is excellent. This is a fast-growing area and the class sizes are getting a little too big. But, the one child currently enrolled here really enjoys going to school.
I love this School Especially team 7D Teachers! Ms.Lewis, Mr.Loitz, And Mr. Neuenshwander.
