This school is great my five sons loved it they went there for grade 6-8 straight.
My daughter attended 7th grade here. She loved it, and truly blossomed during her time there. The teachers were fantastic, with the exception being her science teacher (who by accounts sounded like an emotional nutcase). This schools music program is simply amazing! Mrs Simonson, who leads chorus, truly puts her heart and soul into these kids. The school nurses seem to be a bit unorganized, but the front office knew their stuff. As a parent, I appreciated how many school functions and dances they put on for the kids. It was a nice reward my daughter looked forward to.
This school is great and they have great programs and great teachers. The Jazz program is amazing with students sounding like pro. There are lots of other things that this school can improve on to, like there are few teachers maybe one or two who are acting like bullies. They would scold students in public without proper investigation of the matter. For example, one time during lunch, there was a lot of mess under the table, and my son happens to be there but he noticed that those chips were there already even before they got themselves seated. The teacher approached their table and start ranting about the mess and threatening them to be called to office if she sees those mess again. Good point, only that she was barking on the wrong tree. Not so good as a role model. Teachers should really learn how to lead by example. Overall however, Canarelli has a lot of other good teachers, who really love our kids and show genuine concern, and because of that they are forever remembered and cherished.
It good and bad dean are get on you for things you dont do. But everthing else is fine i am 6 grader nice school. But i hope that the dean Ms. stridy does get me trouble for something i did not do.
Don't send your children to this school many idiots we dont need more idiots -Cathy Mead School Principal I'm tired of these retards where is my asprin? - student
I went to this school 6-8, I am now in a Junior in high school. From what I remember the Deans were just horrible they would get on you for everything, they sent me up to the Deans office so many times that they all knew my name and everything, and I wasn't even a bad kid! For example I was sent up their and given In-House Suspension because I had to many necklaces on and they said it was dress code because they were very distracting. I do remember this school being very clique/group oriented if you weren't Popular or Asian you weren't really noticed, their was always a lot of drama too, but that is any Jr. High School.The teachers were okay, some of them were rude some were great. I wouldn't really suggest sending your child here unless you want to deal with the Deans all the time.
Love this school, I am so happy that my children attend this school. Administration is very helpful and willing to help is they can. The deans never let behavior become an issue. The teachers are FABULOUS!!!!!
I was a student who attended this school in the 6th and 8th grades...And the teachers are nice, and helpful, and I really do not have probloms with most of them, but the Deans are just horrible. They make up rules on the spot, they are very biased toward some people, Example, people are getting expelled for getting sick, sagging pants, and being tardy.... In the 7th grade, I went to a different school to compare policies, rules and regulations. And I learned more that year, than I have ever learned in both years attending Canarelli...Mostly Due to never being suspended for petty things..If they worried about their students more, and reputation less, I would have truely appreciated the 2 years I've Spent attending here. -Devin Clary
This school is amazing. Not only has it changed me in many different ways, it's inspired me to do my best and follow my dreams. My friends are my best competition and my teachers are so encouraging. ORCHESTRA RULES!
WORST SCHOOL EVER! THE DEANS HERE TAKE RUMOR OR OPINIONS AS FACT THEN PASS IT AROUND LIKE THE COMMON COLD. THE DEANS OFFICE & VICE PRINCIPLE ARE A JOKE AS FOR THE PRINCIPLE NON-EXISTENT NEVER REALLY THERE SO NOT MUCH TO SAY ABOUT HER. THEY GO W/EACH OTHER LIKE A HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADING SQUAD BACKING EACH OTHER UP LIKE ITS OK & THEY CAN DO NO WRONG. HAD TO ISSUE AN APOLOGY TO MY KID BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T JUST IN THEIR ACTIONS & THE MOMENT HIS NAME CAME UP FOR A MINOR (1ST OFFENSE BUS INCIDENT) THEY POUNCED ON HIM. ITS SAD...THEY ARE WORSE THAN BULLY KIDS THEY ARE BULLIES OF THE WORSE KIND...THEY HAVE POWER & THEY USE IT AT WILL. IT IS PATHETIC & ITS AWFUL BECAUSE THE TEACHERS ARE REALLY VERY GOOD! SOME BORDERING GREAT! THIS IS A TERRIBLE WAY TO TEACH KIDS TO NOT BE BULLIES. I REALLY WISH THEY'D GET TO A CAREER THEY ENJOY. I VOLUNTEERED THERE BUT AFTER HEARING THE DEANS COMPLAIN ABOUT THEIR NEEDING TO PROVIDE AN EXTRA HOUR & A HALF OF "DUE DILIGENCE" DURING LUNCH I COULDN'T TAKE IT. MY KID ISN'T SAFE & IT SHOULDN'T BE THIS WAY, THEY GET TO SHAPE OUR FUTURE HOW GREAT IS THAT?! NOT ACCORDING TO THEM...
i moved to this school in the 7th grade so didn't really know anybody. i didn't think that the students there where all that nice there were a lot of clics/groups, whatever you want to call them, but anyways the teachers where amazing the deans kinda mean the gave me detention for chewing gum once. it was pretty lame. but its true you do get in trouble for the littlest of things, and they rarely let you explain yourself. other then the deans the deans the school is one of the best i have ever gone to!!
The deans and vice principal of this school treat the students like common criminals. Even for the smallest silliest infractions. They would rather throw someone out for three days, than have to deal with problems. The kids are told to report issues, when they do, they get in just as much trouble as if they hadn't reported it and got caught in the middle. We are talking minor infractions, not even violence. If you are not perfect, you are nothing to them
Beautiful School. Well organized and clean! Just loving this school!
canarelli, wow umm it's a really great school. i love my teachers so much but not one of them. however some of the girls here are snobs and don't talk to you. they are really mean. like 2 girls in the bathroom during lunch were bulling me. but middle school is like that. every kid sometime has to go throught that. but other than that i love this school so much.
Canarelli is the greatest school ever. No student is ever teesed or bullied. The teachers are awsowme and all I can say is wow!
Canarelli is great. The teachers were always very nice when I was there. They are 5 star... and will always be in my book. It was a great school that stressed academics and yet had great excricular activities.
i love all my teacher their always fun and fair and i can only say one thing i am having a blast
Wow, Canarelli Middle School is such an awesome school. Not only are the teachers amazing but there are many clubs. And, the students get rewarded many times for acts of goodness. wow.
