Crispell Middle School is a huge disappointment. Teachers do not call parents back and are not focused on growth for student learning pertaining to CCS. I am very disappointed with the careless approach to teaching students. There's no support for parents and concerns they may have to help students read or write better or to obtain mastery.

Crispell is a good school, if you're not being bullied every day. My son has been taken out of this school for their bullying problem. The school does nothing to corect it and pretty much says "kids will be kids" or to just try and simply ignore it but how can you ignore something that happens on a daily basis? I will never send my child back to that place.

Principal is proactive re: discipline and promoting appropriate behavior. Monthly Parents Forum available. Quality of instruction and feedback to the student varies greatly. Some teachers have a published grading policy, some don't. Some grade and return everything, some don't. Had to privately tutor composition and math all three years. Book:student ratio in library needs improvement. Specials teachers are all on the ball. Swim program has been cancelled. Some clubs are available but not publicized well. Honors and accel placements -looking for 95 average or better in preceding nonhonors year along with teacher rec. Honors SS, English, and Accelerated Math available in 7th. Accel. Math, Accel. Science and Honors SS, English available in 8th. Must accelerate in both science and math (not just one) due to scheduling.

Crispell is a great school for learning! Late principal Pat Materazza empowered his teachers many years ago to take actions that would support active student learning--taking advantage of the natural work-a-holic nature of most teachers. Keep up the good work!

I go to school here in the 7th grade, and i love it! One of the good things about it here is the honor roll classes. in sixth grade, if you have an above average grade, you can be in an honors class for that subject. same in eigth. the teachers are awesome here, and we actually strive really hrd to be the best we can be!

The school expects good behavior. As a Parent I am happy with the education and high expectation of good behavior. The Principle does a great job and really connects well with the students and parents.It is one of the best schools in the area.

the quality of academic programs are equal to most other schools. Crispell has music, art programs. The availability of sports for grade 6 is very limited. The school policy of giving ISS out at the drop of a hat needs to be revised. I see most of the things the school suspends kids for (in my opinion) deserve detention, not a day locked away in a room.
