I think this is a great school. It has definitely come a long way. It takes time for everything so everyone should hang in there, work together and you will get great results.

This school is alright.. I wouldn't even say it's the best. I've been to better schools. There are three floors yet they still don't have enough class rooms... Some of the teachers are RUDE, yet want students to treat them with respect.

My son attended this school for 7th and 8th grade. I can honestly tell you he had a stellar two years there. Although he was in TAG(Talented and Gifted) his teachers were always tentative to him and his needs. I really felt he was treated very special by his teachers and staff. In going to the school on many occasions it always seemed to be under order. I do know that the new principle takes no mess. And will not tolerate any unruly behavior. I now have my youngest son here for 7th grade for the 2006 school year. I can only hope and pray he will have an outstanding year also.

I am a student attending this school. I am now attending the eighth grade. Before I started attending this school I had heard many horrible things about the school. But thanks to the new and improved staff, the school is on its way to the top!

My son attended this school last year for the seventh grade. I must commend his Social Studies teacher, she was the best. She kept a constant line of communication going. Although my son has had academic difficulties, he maintained an 'A' in her class. My husband and I were so amazed and appreciative of all her efforts. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to express to her how great of a teacher she was. I had to call the school several times and always received a return call when necessary. My problem however is not with the school but with a great majority of the parents raising some of these kids in the schools. PARENTS not TEACHERS are our kids first teachers. PARENTS teach the basic things like respect for your elders, respect for yourself (first and foremost), respect for your peers, respect for your teachers.

I attended Charles Carroll Middle School and I would not recommend this school for anyone. The area is misleading because with the local libraries and beautiful landscapes you would think the school will be worth attending however, the busing of children from other neighbors adds very different and unpleasant experience. I participated in the talented and gifted program and was still steered off the right track by the kids/peer pressue etc., the teachers are very knowledgable. however constant interruptions, disrespectful, and unruly students can cause a Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde thing for the teachers. Send your child to a more cultivating school.

I have a daughter that has attend every since 7th grade and she is now in the 8th. When she first started there the school was in a mess. The staff was unorganized. Kids were unsupervised, teachers were not teaching because of the students that were not interest in learning and therefore the students that wanted to learn would not be taught as well. I had to go up there on several occassion because my daughter would not get the grades that she earned because of students that did not want to learn. This year has gone a little better for me and daughter. The only problem I have now is that they have not had a/c in the past 2 years.

I too have a son that attends Charles Carroll and up until he started there he was a well rounded kid. I have tried since September to get in touch with the administrator and have only succeeded once. I have done pop visits and have seen the students in the hall with not a care in the world. I agree that if the administration and the parents don't care about the students then the students won't care about themselves.

My daughter has attennded this school since 7th grade and school last year was absolutely horrible. This year has been little better so far but only because a lot of probem students are gone. All that needs to happen now is for the principal and vice principals to be replaced and THEN it could potentially become a decent school. I've been waiting on the principal to return my call for 2 weeks and I've left 4 messages. I heard that Charles Carroll was bad when I was in middle school but in my experience, a lot of it comes from uninvolved parents and an uncaring administration. As with any school, if you have people in charge who don't care combined with parents who don't care, you'll have students who don't care. Gladly, my daughter will be leaving that school in December.

I have to agree with the other review about this school. My son goes there and until he started this school last year he was a good student. A lot of the teachers are the worst. I tried all of last year to get a meeting set up with his teachers and left countless messages for them to call me but I never got a call. Even when he was in major danger of failing I never got called. I even sent in notes but no reply. I didn't get a call until he was caught skipping and I was told that it wasn't his first time. The teachers really don't care about the kids. They have cameras around the school but don't bother trying to stop the kids from leaving. This school needs a lot of improvement. If I had a car my child would go somewhere else.

This school should be shut down, because the Principal as well as the Teachers don't care about the students education nor their safety. The students have been complaining about their teachers not teaching or not giving homework. The students have said they've sat in class all day without doing any work, because the teacher said since someone is talking I'm not going to teach, instead of sending that student to the office, they would rather sit all day and teach nothing. I've tried to speak with the Principal but he doesn't feel the need to listen, he knows students hang in the halls and he doesn't send them to class. This school is the worst I've ever seen, so now I am in the process of removing my child, from this unsupervised school.
