CMS has over crowded classrooms, Last year the student to teacher ratio was 22 to 1, this year it's 32 to 1. To many permissive transfer, as well as the teacher need to have there kids attend schools in the cities they pay taxes in and stop wasting our tax dollars.. With all of the re-testing, I truly don't believed GS rating is a 10, perhaps more like a 5.. The area has become over crowed.. Christy Stephenson is all over the place and not to be trusted, parents beware of this lady.. Not a safe school for your students.
The teachers at this school are controlled by the Principals!! The 8th grade Assistant Principal Christy Stephenson appears to be a control freak, not a fair lady, you cant trust a work that comes out of her mouth..
My daughter is a permissive transfer to Couch Middle School. She has been there since the 6th grade and I am very happy with the school. Love their style of teaching and communication with the parents. My daughter has been a straight "A: student throughout her years there.
I highly recommend Couch Middle School! it is a well rounded school with education, arts, and hands on experience.
The teachers at this school are good for the most part but there is no democracy. There is no point in having a meeting with the staff if you disagree with anything involving your child because there is no such thing as a compromise with them. I have one child in this school (only a few more months thank God) and I am not happy that I have 2 more that will be going there. I will do all I can to come up with an alternative to sending my other kids to this school. If your child has any type of individuality in their personality that can be taken out of context don't send them to this place.
My daughter went to Snellville Middle last year and it was a nightmare, she was bullied constandly. Kids smoking in the bathrooms, my daughter was outta of control, thank God! i transferred her to Couch Middle her attitude changed within weeks i can say that my daughter is getting a great education now. Couch is a excellent school.
I have enjoyed having my son attend Couch Middle School. He has had really good teachers who seem to care if he does well or not. Good communication is key. I appreciate the emails from the school to inform me of upcoming events many of which are from the principal. This is a great community to live in and I love it.
