John A Carusi Middle School 5

I'm a parent of an 8th grade student at Carussi. I'm also a Guidance Counselor at another school. My son loves Carussi. He's an average student and the teachers, Guidance Counselor and Administration have been working with him to do well. It's a very good school with a majority of faculty members who really care and help the kids.

My daughter started 6th grade in Carusi this year, and although I get the usual complaints about homework, she is doing well. The school staff seems enthusiastic about teaching the children and the principal is personable.

I love this school and my daughter has done fantastic here! The Administrative team and Guidance Counselor are caring and helpful. I feel bad for the student who was "bullied", but they obviously never reported it. I find them to be on the ball with stuff. My child wears jeans and t-shirts everyday because she wants to and no one else has ever said two words to her. The teachers will either come in early, stay late or help the students during their lunch break if they need help. My only complaint is at some of the dances the girls wear inappropriate attire. However, I place all the blame on the parents for letting them look like street walkers!

I went to Carusi Middle School for sixth grade. My sixth grade experience was horrible. What I hated the most about Carusi is that the teachers always listen to your conversations during class and give you no privacy when you're trying just to talk to a friend. The students aren't that friendly either. I was one of the students who couldn't really afford cool looking clothes from big brand stores, so I got teased and bullied for wearing the same clothes over and over. I got called poor and other horrible names, the teachers did nothing about this, they just didn't care. If you are a parent reading this, I would not reccomend you send your child to Carusi Middle School.

I love Carusi. I am new this year. Everyone welcomed me. My teachers are very nice and do anything they can to help my classmates. What I really like is that we have five different exploratories. They are music, computers, art, communications skill, and first century skills. We take each for two months. I think that was a great idea because we get to do all of them by the end of the school year. Every class is 50 minutes. We could also check our grades online anytime we want. That keeps the parents informed with their child's grade. Go Mustangs!

Not impressed.There is absolutely no discipline in this school. The students can pretty much do,say and wear whatever they want. As far as the 'zero tolerance' when it comes to violence-not true.

This is my childs first year at this school. She attended Clara Barton from 1-5 grade and it was a Very positive experience. I was anxious for her to move on to middle school. I attended all the school meetings so far, have spoken at length with all the principals and Asst principals. They are absolutely in a class by themselves! They are ALL focused on the kids and they are very active in ALL phases of the entire school. They know many students by first name and the kids respond to their interest, which makes it a very positive environment. I have made it a point to meet all my childs teachers, and it was clear immediately that all of them are first rate. The music dept is highly recommended, as my child plays violin in the orchestra. I HIGHLY recommend this school.
