My experience at this school was regrettable. When I first met the principal, he seemed like a good guy, but as the weeks progressed, he became more disrespectful to me. He invaded my personal space and made me feel uncomfortable. Not only that, he also insulted me. He said something like, "You should give up resisting me. You're never gonna win." I felt unsafe and unsupported. Consequently, I didn't want to go to this school anymore. Furthermore, it seemed that everybody else around me was being treated respectfully, but I was bullied. People called me insulting nicknames, even the teachers. Also, my fellow classmates would poke, push, and insult me for no reason, and no one would ever stand up for me. Even when I actually shared what was happening to me with a teacher, nothing improved. There was no adult in my life that would help me. It was the worst school experience that I've ever had. A good school should be a place where students feel safe, but I never felt safe at this school. Therefore, I don't recommend going to this school.

I attended Community Middle School, and all I can say is Wow. The school has an outstanding Sciene Olympiad team that has made it to nationals every year for a very long time. The teachers are nothing but focused, and perseverant. No matter how hard the job is they will make sure their students understand the concept and also that they can apply those same skills on an assessment.The school has lock down. Fire, evacuation, and earthquake drills regularly, to prepare their students for any situation. They always keep a smile on their face and the school deserves nothing but blue ribbons

My child attended Community Middle School and I am very happy with my child's progress. The staff is helpful, there are many extracurricular acitvities for the kids and their Arts Department is one of the best I've ever seen. Community provides great education, socialization and experience for their students. Our family couldn't be happier- the 10 out of 10 rating is well-deserved.

Community Middle School is a fantastic school. Every teacher\staff member is assiduous, diligent, and they love their students. Students collaborate with each other. CMS is an active school where not only do the students learn, they have fun and meet new friends. What I like about this amazing school is that students get to have a variety of choices for electives, sports, clubs, & languages. The schedules are neatly organized where students have enough time to go from class to class. The students in each class are benevolent and amicable to each other. CMS probably doesn't need more improvement, the people in this school have integrity, and it's an exemplary school.

This is a great school for students there parents and community in general. Caring and professional staff, dedicated to students. The community team, is just not focused on bookish development of budding generation but wholesome development that gives them eyes and ears to the society around. Community canteen, clothing drive and many such examples. I must say they do there work diligently, innovatively and foremost with all inclusiveness. Salute to this teachers and staff members.

Our school really is like it's own "CommUnity". Teachers, Parents and Administration work together with our students to establish a positive team atmosphere. Every student is made to feel like a part of our team. Our teachers and administration really care about our student's well being, and are always helpful. The results speak for themselves, we have a great group of students. We have very diverse cultures here at Community, and it's what makes us unique. Everyone brings something new to the table and we teach each other about our diverse backgrounds. We don't have discrimination or prejudice, we have diversity and we celebrate it!

The teachers here are so helpful and genuinely care about every student. The students are fairly nice but there is quite a "popular contest" here. The lunch is delicious. The lockers are really small but they are decent. Bathrooms are terrible period. This school has its own ups and downs. There is a wide variety of electives to take for your specific interests.

CMS maintains a very creative environment for students to develop their acadamy skills and to explore different aspects of interests. The school is safe, clean. Teachers are nice and responsive.

The school is above average based on the student population that is driven to succeed and the parents that provide the impetus for them to succeed. The teacher quality is only average and has a high degree of variance even within each grade.

This school is a great school and the curriculum helps students that are advanced and the students who are at the normal grade level. i would recommend this school to anyone who has a child who's always bored in class because they know everything. the curriculum here is very high compared to other schools. it's great :)

We just moved from Trenton NJ, where frankly the school system was not all that good. My daughter and I moved to West Windsor and found out the school she would be going to was CMS.....from day 1, the counselors, teachers and staff were understanding of my concerns for my daughter. They sat down w/ me to come up w/ a agenda to help my daughter catch up. My daughter was never interested in learning, she went to school for the social aspect of it.....but now you can see a difference in her and she is interested in the academic part of the school. I am so impress w/ how promptly the teachers reply back to me (via email)....I wish that we could've moved when she was much younger, but I have a very good feeling that CMS will help prepare my daughter for High School.

My daughter came from a private school with less students that her entire 5th grade. She and I were terrified to put her into the public school system. I had some concerns about her curriculum and sent an email to the Principal and within 12 hours, I received a call from him and three other specialists. I was floored by the quick and concerned response (I didn't even get this in the private school). They quickly put into action a plan for my daughter and we are both feeling much more at ease with her education. Thank you!

This public high school is overall very great academically, providing that there is a wide variety of clubs, and classes to choose from. The music department sponsors free music lessons, and the sports center is open to everyone. The academic programs have both Gifted, Advanced, Basic, and Challenged.
