I have been very impressed with Babb Middle School. This is my daughter's first year and I commend all of the hard working faculty members of this school. The principal is exceptional . I wish I had her when i attended Babb many many years ago. I was a little skeptical about sending my child to a CCPS with so much going on in the education department, but Babb makes me proud to claim myself as an alumni as well as to send me child there. Please keep up the good work. I appreciate your dedication and determination in contributing to our future leaders.

Two of my daughters have graduated from Babb Middle School, and my youngest is there now. I have always been extremely pleased with Babb! From the overly active and caring principal and assistant principals, to all the teachers who teach with passion and concern, I'm thankful for their creating an atmosphere of well-behaved students who are always in the pursuit of excellence! I hold up Babb Middle School with honor as an example of how parents, students, teachers and administrators work together to give our community an outstanding school!

With such a diverse population, this school is extremely efficient as a public sholl. The administrators support staff and it shows from test scores and their school spirit. Adult supervision is very prevelent. I can only imagine what their ranking would be if they were not clumped with ESL students as it relates to standardized testing.
