Gulfport Central Middle School is awesome. Some of the teachers take the time to think about us, the students, before they make decissions. The administrators, teachers, and staff strive to make the school more exciting. The atheletic department is awesome and the clubs at Central are outstanding. In my opinion, Central is very COPACETIC. As Dr.Battle says every morning,"Average is officially OVER!!"

My school, Gulfport Central Middle, has an incedible band. Our band has great potential to become one of the best band in our school district. GCMS band shows us how to commuicate with one another, not just by talking but through music. It teaches leadership. - One band, One sound....

This school is located outside the Sea Bee base and frequently has military personnel from the base volunteering in the school, which is a welcome sight. It is always nice to see our men in uniform giving back to the community and setting an example for the local students.The faculty and administration here work very closely with the parents to ensure that the students are provided with a first-class, quality, 21st century education that will stand them in good stead no matter what choice they make for their educational career; and those discussions are taking place in their 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classrooms. This is definitely an education for tomorrow!

I do not teach at GCMS but I know that the teachers/staff there care deeply about their students and strive everyday to make the best of every situation they are given. They put in long hours to make sure they are giving their all to the students at the school.

My 3 sons attended GCMS and had a remarkable experience. Middle school can be quite difficult, but this school was attention e to their needs. Upon entering high school in honors classes my boys maintained excellence. The two who have graduated have entered the University of South Alabama in academic scholarships totaling $60,000.00 plus. Thanks GCMS-they are making you proud. cje

Outstanding teachers, trremendous administration, and great students. A topnotch place to educate your child. Outstanding electives such as band, choir, and strings. Fine Arts Deparment is second to none. Science Department seems to be the strongest staff, but all teachers are doing a great job.

This school is truly awful. I have 2 children enrolled here and it has been never ending problems. Racism and bullying are rampant problems and ignored when brought to someones attention. We are moving just to get our children out of this school. It's that bad.

I'm am a 8th grader who's attending this school, and I will say that this is one of the best schools in the district. There is a wide array of electives, such as art, strings, band, step, basketball, football, and many other activities. The teachers are involved in everything, from the work, all the way to special events. They are ready to help out any student who needs it, and they will listen to anything you say. The principal, Micheal Battle, is the best I have ever seen. His methods of discipline may be a little unorthodox, but he gets the job done. The school has some racism, and some fights, but it doesn't occur much, and it's handled immediately. If you are looking for a school to send your child to, by far, make this your first choice.

Not such a great school, lots of racism (black kids calling white kids 'honkey', 'cracker', or being told 'we hate white people' etc...) and nothing is being done by the administration, they are plain ignoring it. The level of instruction is not very high, the teachers all seem very nice and caring though. Communication at all levels is not very good. Not much extra-curricular activities for the kids. They tend to cater to the children who have the most behavioral problems, it may as well be a so-called 'alternative school', unfortunately...

This is in regards to the 2005 comments. I know that was a long time ago. I hope you get a chance to read this. My husband teaches at GCMS and I at GPE. There are cameras in the halls for your childrens' safety! I grew up in Long Beach, and all my life heard bad things about both of our schools. The administration at GCMS last year was fantastic. I cannot say anything about another year there because last year was my husband's first. I can say that your child mattered there last year. I am writing this because I have concerns of my own. There are some things going on in the district right now that are putting this school in grave danger. If you are a supportive GCMS parent please let those teachers know what a wonderful job they are doing. They apparently don't hear it enough!!!!

Behavior is not always controlled but every thing else is great! Academics are not all that matters.some children who don't accel in academics, need another way to shine . Not everyone learns the same way.The availability of the arts is great and important for individual expression and stress reduction. The teachers are of high quality ,create new ways to teach, professional,willing to do whatever it takes.2 of them gave me their home phone numbers. However.The only thing I would complain about would be the behavior of some of the students in the classroom.I realize at this age it's impossible to keep them 100 % from picking on each other but I think it should be 0 tolerence.

My Daughter went to school at CMS and received a great education. The teachers that she had were most helpful whenever a learning problem came up. My daughter was in the music program there (strings orchestra)and played the violin. Her academic classes paved the way for her high school years that were to say the least, successful. Because of the Teachers, Staff, & Admin, at CMS, my child has now entered college, with a music scholarship. She is a freshman this year and because of the dedication of her Music instructor, Billy Ulmer, my child is seated among the senior orchestra at her college, this is unusual for a freshman.

We have been very disappointed in this school. There is a major lack of discipline the teachers seem to be only concerned with helping the kids with bad grades and bad behavior and leave the good students with little or no help. If you want quality education and a safe learning environment, look elsewhere. Too much bullying by both kids and staff and not enough intervention on the part of the administration. Not sure why they have cameras in the halls. I would give this school an 'F'. They fail to provide a safe place for kids to learn and have an overall poor attitude toward the kids and parents.
