this school is really amazing! if anyone thinks this school is out of control then they should try going to West Laurens Middle School..i absolutely hate that school the students are so rude and the teachers simply arent acknowlegable to their surroundings evidently! thank you so much Crisp County Middle School for everything you've done to help me and my friends or realitives become better students! love, Caitlin Wilkinson

CCMS is a terrible school. The students are simply out of control and there is nothing being done to improve the quality of this school. The Board of Education has already sent out a letter to all parents stating that this school does not meet state standards and that parents should feel free to withdraw their children and send them elsewhere. I took both of my sons out of CCMS and do not plan to return

I am proud to say that I am a Crisp County Middle School student! MY teachers over the past years at CCMS have taught me not just studies but to stand up for myself! If you are looking for a school in south Georgia this is the one you should let your child attend!

CCMS is a great school. The public must realize that middle schools cover the transitional ages when a child is beginning to go through puberty. Think back to the days when you were 12 and 13. Were you really interested in math or that cute someone two rows over? Schools also need the support of parents not their condemnation. Some parents do not seem to realize that the teachers and administration are not their enemiess. If there is a problem, visit the school with the intention of solving the problem, not chewing a teacher out. Sadly, some parents seem to believe that their child 'doesn't lie to me.' Again, think back to your adolescent days. Can you honestly say that you never lied to your parents? Again I have to say that Crisp County Middle School is a great school!

CCMS has really turned around in recent years. Scores are higher, the school has made AYP, and discipine is better that ever. The principal has expected a lot of his students, staff, and faculty, and they have all responded accordingly. CCMS used to be the worst school in the community, but now it is the best!

Crisp County middle school is terrible! My Child goes here but not for long. The counselors should not even be counselors. They do not seem to care. There are several kids that have quickly become depressed since arriving here. I don't know if it is the teachers, students or what!. But they need to get there stuff together and find a solution fast! G.L

Great progress is being made! Discipline was a problem, but is a whole lot better. The school board must be listening to us now!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 23, 2005

I would like to say Crisp County Middle School needs assistance. Someone has to do something! The kids are uncontrolled and anyone can walk into the school un-noticed at any time of the day! That is scary! I don't know if the Board of Education, administration, teachers, students or a combination is the problem but someone needs to step in and give guidance to this school.

I would like to thank the staff at ccms for all the support they have shown toward students and parents in teaching them that an education can take you a long way. Staff and parents let us work together to make crisp county middle school a great place for our kids.
