Carrithers Middle School 2

This School Is STRICT. Yes We Are Taught Very Well, & Are Respected By MOST of the teachers. But they Dont let us do anything, they treat Us as if were still in elementary school. We have to walk in a line on a blue piece on tape To every class, we dont get to sit where we at lunch, we have to sit with our class. We Wear Uniforms which is ok , but when we do get to dress out We Cant Wear What We want, you cant where skinny jeans, you only can wear 2 bracelets on your arm, were not allowed to wear a certain type of necklaces. I had an necklace that said barbie and they made me Take it Off. We cant Dye Our hair Any Color, A few students in our school would wear braids and get a little bit of color like light Brown & they will make you Take It Out. They Dont Treat All the students equal . As you can See 52% of The school is White , & about 8 out of 10 of the teachers are white too. And they Treat Most of the white Students Better. Overall carrithers Is a Good school But They Are Strict & dont treat Students Equally.

My child is a special needsv child and this school's program for thesev type children is horrible. They nevevwent by what his IEP read. Infact it was totally disreguarded. Bullying was a continous problem. My child was not only tormented for his disability he was physically beaten by 2 regular education kids. Plus the school seemed not willing to help resolve the situation. Needless to say I pulled my son out of the school after 2 months. We are now home schooling where I know my child is safe and his needs are met.

I went to Carrithers Middle School my 7th and 8th grade year. I'm not sure why people think its such a bad school. All of the staff and especially my teachers were very nice and cared about us. What is such the big deal? Its not a bad school, and this is coming from a former student there.

Im a student going to Carrithers Middle School, im currently in the 8th grade. The parents who write bad things about CMS, have no idea about how bad the school is; because they dont' even attend there. I think the school is really wonderful and safe. I don't think the teachers yell at the students for no reason! The teachers only yell at the student because of the disrespect they dish out. I also love the guidance counseling they have! I feel very comfortable talking to Ms. Hume or Mrs. Mohr, I look foward to going to school and seeing my friends and teachers! :)

I am a 7th grade student who goes to this school. I feel that the teachers are great, but nothing gets resolved unless parents get envolved. Bullying is a huge problem in this school. Sometimes I dread school because of bullying in periods.

I have a 7th grader this year at Carrithers. My son has been doing well and likes his school and teachers. I am an involved parent and have met and talked to all of his teachers. Ms. Gausepohl is a terrific principal who has turned this school around. She has a strong staff behind her and it is known that they can be strict, but they only are to teach our kids to show respect to others and to keep everyone safe. I have younger children and when the times comes they will proudly attend Carrithers also.

As a parent I am extremely disappointed with CMS. Avoid this school like the plague! They don't even have enough school books for the children to take home. The library doesn't even have it's own room, it's in the middle of the hallway! Run far & fast!

I am now an 8th grader at carrithers middle school! the school is great! the staff is very caring. They treat kids the way the kids treat them! for you parents who say our school is not a good school, well your wrong! you have never spent months in the class room and observing what we do! so you really don't know what your talking about! if there is something wrong in our school, our teachers and principal will try and help as much as possible! if they didnt care about us then we wouldnt have brand new computers each year and new textbooks! if your child gets in trouble, then thats their fault. They get yelled at becuase they did wrong! theres no way a teacher will let a student disrespect them! yes the teachers do yell at the students but not for no reason!
