Hi, my name is ...... and I am a student at Charleston Middle School [CMS]. I just wanted to point out that this school is beyond what the negative part of my mind can think of. The teachers in this school simply do not care about anything besides there pay check. I have sisters that are still in this school district, but they go to the high school now. Whem they were in cms which is where i'm at right now they had practically all different teachers then what I have now. Most teachers that teach here are people who just got out of college to begin there teaching carrier. The staff at this school does not care what so ever, every day I walk through the hallways and all I hear is people just screaming, yelling, cursing etc.. Yet teachers do nohting. If your planning on moving here because it's cheap to live here then please say hello to hell, I suggest the town besides this town named Sikeston. All my life being in this school I have only wished to leave and go to a school that has sense within their dignity. I may only be 14 but my review is legit. Non like most students here I am one of the smartest, non dumbest etc.. I have lived in this tow nall my life and i suggest you not to.

This school has a total lack of discipline enforcement. In most cases it is a zoo of unequaled proportions. The students run the classes and the teachers act as if nothing is going on.
