The teachers are cool and they are very good teachers. The bathrooms need to be cleaned more often. We have gym, art, music. I like volleyball. The music room should be closer to the classes b/c we have barely any time to get there. We need more time between classes, you will be late if you use the bathroom. The students are nice.

This is a HORRIBLE school, staffed by insensitive and unprofessional staff. Most of the teachers seem highly qualified and caring, but the principal and guidance counselors are disgraceful - mean spirited and extremely uncooperative with parents. Shocking! We'll be moving to a better district - any district- very soon

I have been going to clarence schools since i was 5 years old. i am currently in 7th grade and im loving it. The teachers are all certified and are so nice. the school is very clean and very organized. Kids at cms are very friendly and there are many school spirit days , such as dress like a girl day, dress up day, dress stupid day, and movie day. There are also many shcool dance nights , there is food and much to do you can even swim in the pool if you want. there are also many extracurricular activities at cms, lacross, basketbal , swim team, feild hocky, badmitten, floor hocky , and vollyball. in gym right now we are learning how to break dance and do the electric slide.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
