This school is the worst school. The principal is never seen by the students. He really doesn't care about the students is what my daughter and her friends. The parents are disgusted that a teacher arrested with a DUI is teaching advanced classes at the school. What kind of example is this for the children? Disappointed in this school.

The fact that the administrators have children sitting outside the buildings in the morning until 9:30 a.m. in all Florida weather conditions (which is either scorching hot or rain) gives you an indication that they really aren't catering to students and parents. In my experience, most of the teachers are excited to be there and motivated to teach. Let's clarify...most of the core class teachers are great. There are not enough programs or extracurricular activities for children to get involved in. The few programs that are there have so many stipulations attached to them to say who can not join....I don't see how they benefit the entire student population.

I have a 7th grade at Coral Springs Middle School and it has been a wonderful experience so far. The teachers are phenomenal and my son is doing well and enjoying his classes. He actually LIKES language arts now!!! He has always been a math kid but his language arts teacher has made his class really fun and interesting for him. The principal, Mr. Murray, is friendly and approachable and readily answers any of my questions or concerns. The AP's for 6th and 7th are great people and very concerned and involved with all of their students (I don't know the 8th grade AP as we haven't gotten there, yet). We had a small issue with a potential bully, but Mr. Argent nipped in the bud immediately. I really appreciate the responsiveness and attention to matters like this. It IS middle school, and things do happen, but the staff are very, very good at their jobs and take care of any parent and student concerns. I have always felt welcome at this school. The PTA is also very nice and works hard to do nice things for the school. I have not been very involved in the PTA there, but I have a 5th grader who will be coming to CSMS next year, so I hope to be a little more involved then.

Coral Springs Middle School is an interesting school. There used to be lots of problems with gangs, racial hate, and bullying until Mr. Murray came in and completely altered the hate culture at that school. Mr. Murray (the principal) has made the school much safer and a better place to go for our children. While some problems do still exist, the staff and teachers there are very friendly and have no tolerance to bullying anymore and will resolve any issue that occurred. Normally I would have given this school 2 stars but since Mr. Murray has arrived, this school has literally been saved and he has made it a much better place. The teachers there are the best: they are really kind, they get involved in your child's life to make sure they will succeed, and I have no complaints about them they are just perfect. So while the other reviews are a bit harsh, I feel my review best demonstrates what Coral Springs Middle is today and I would give my full recommendation for you to enroll your child. Thanks for reading!

My son is in 8th grade and about to move on to HS. We ve had a very good experience with his teachers an he is well prepared for HS. I encourage parents to meet with their kid s counselors as they are always willing and ready to address any concerns that may arise.

AWFUL! The teachers are nice and enlightening, they're the only reason I even put a SINGLE star for this review. The students act like gang members, I was in the smartest group and STILL feared for my life. The staff sadly seems to have given up on controlling them and they obviously run the school. No discipline can be enforced out of fear of lawsuits. Move away if you have to, like many once prestigious schools this one has become a victim of the 'gangsta' culture and their good teachers held hostage to their jobs fighting the good fight.

I was worried for my son s transition from elementary to middle school. I worry no more as CSMS has demonstrated a high level of dedication to the students. Teachers are very dedicated and responded fast to any of my concerns. My son has felt comfortable with his teachers all year. He s also made many good friends who, like him, strive for good academics and personal relations. Counselors are readily available. The front desk personnel is friendly and available. The principal is there to be seen at drop off and pick up times.

This school has advanced majorly since the new Principal, Mr. Murray has come in. Good music and athletics. Lots of fights, everyday, and bad influences. Bullying is horrible here, even with the new program. Some teachers who REALLY shouldn't have a job, and horrible discipline. All around, it's an okay school.

My son is a straight A child who was never in trouble. My wife and I are both in education. If this school has taught my child one thing, it was to hate school. Discipline is very poor. Teachers don't communicate and all pile on the homework. The principal doesn't know the kids and doesn't care. Run from this school! Fights and bullying are commonplace and know one cares.

My son just finished 6th grade there and hates it, so much he doesnt want to go to any school. From being bullied by both students and teachers,it has not given me any confidence in the school.The students have fights all the time and most fights are racially influenced.T he teachers are two faced as they tell the kids 1 thing but when confronted,act a totally different way. Extra Curricular things are higly competitive and dont encourage beginners. Parents dont seem to be as involved as when their kids were in elementary school.I am highly disappointed as we were new to the neighborhood and our impression was formed from internet research.The reality is much much worst.

Overall, the school has good quality of academic programs. Availability is of extracurricular activities is broad enough. I have noticed that the level of parent involvement is not as high as I would expect. Teachers are on top of the student progress. If they notice a decline in performance, they set up a meeting to discuss issues. They are also open to communications. I send questions on my kids agendas and I get responses. On the performance meetings, I've communicated to them that I'd like to have some sort of periodic notes on the kids performance instead of just being called to a meeting once a quarter to be notified there are problems with my kid's performance. I am more involved now with him and his progress due to a commitment I made in those meetings and his performance has improved a lot.

We've been pleasantly surprised by CSMS. This year the school boasts a new principal as well as some new programs and improvements. 2005 is the first year in many that the school has had an orchestra program. My daughter thought she might like to try and has loved it! She started the academic year as a true beginner with the viola and has become quite a confident player. Academically, my daughter is doing well - being challenged without being inundated. Class sizes are manageable and administrative response is suberb. Our only real negative concerns the GEM (math) program and the teaching strategies of the assigned teacher, but I think many of those problems are county-wide. Overall, we are quite satisfied with CSMC.

Overall the school is not bad; my 7th grader has nice friends there. But kids have so many classes and every teacher has a different policy, homework rules, etc... They should have some consistency - a poor 12 year old needs things a bit more structured, and not structured 6 different ways. There is not enough interaction between parent and teacher on child's individual progress, I never hear from them, even when she's missing assignments. We do like that there are no uniforms! I'd heard about problems at CSMS before my daughter went there - mostly racial issues, fights and such. I need to know she is in a safe environment.

My son is a 7th grader at CSMS. The school has a new principal and she seems to be proactive in dealing with problems. I would say that there is a problem with bullying (physical and verbal) and also some students disrespecting teachers. Foul language is commonplace for many students, more so that when I was in middle school. The teachers are decent, no problems there.

My daughter is enjoying a wonderful social schedule, loves her teachers and got straight A's last marking period. However, she gets virtually no homework each night and rarely has any tests so how do the teachers get the scores to give her an A.

Very good teachers. Discipline could use some help, it goes from too severe to too lenient depending on who is handling the matter.

This is my son's first year at this school. His teachers are exceptional but he is also in advanced and gifted classes. There is an after-school sports program but if your child somehow doesn't hear about try-outs, he won't get a chance to play for the whole year. Discipline seems to be good, and it needs to be. There are some rough kids at this school, but for the most part they are neighborhood kids that have grown up together so it is pretty low-key. All-in-all it seems to be a good school where my son is learning and is comfortable and happy.
