My Son has been at this school for 3 years now. He is prepared for high school. The teachers have been attentive to his needs as an ADD student and I have been pleased with the adminstration. The class offerings and electives are well rounded allowing the students the opportunity to explore different interest. The environment is a safe and positive one. I would highly recommend this school.

My son is about to finish 6th grade at this wonderful school. I'm about to move to the Ballantyne area and am VERY sad to have to switch to Community House Middle. My son has a little bit of a reading disability and has an individualized educational program. Frankly, he has NEVER done as well with grades as he has here. The teachers are AWESOME and really have helped him improve. My son does not want to switch either. He absolutely loves it there. I don't know how, but I will be speaking to student assignment to try to keep my son at Carmel, even if it means I have to drive him there myself vs him taking the bus even though I know that would not be easy for me as I'm a mom of 5. Parent ratings for Community House are horrible, especially regarding bullying... I pray he'll be able to stay at this awesome school!!!

I LOVE the staff @ Carmel Middle School. They have always been very helpful to me and my children. I have a 7th and 8th grader that attends Carmel. Both of my children began attending Carmel in the 6th grade. The entire staff is outstanding. The principal and teachers are always responsive to the parent and child. Communication is key and Carmel does a great job keeping the parent informed of their child progress. In the future, my 4th grader will be attending Carmel Middle School as well!

This will be our 5th year at Carmel. It is a wonderful school with very active parents and teachers who go above and beyond with instruction and caring. Marc Angerer, principal, is fair, in tune with his kids and runs a tight ship. The teachers LOVE it there, parents enjoy volunteering and kids seem to thrive. Carmel is the best school my kids have attended (elementary, middle and high school). Keep up the good work COUGAR staff!!!

After our first quarter at Carmel Middle School, we are thoroughly pleased. We recently moved, so didn't continue to middle school with the rest of our elementary. My children have made a nice set of new friends. The principal and teachers took immediate interest when they struggled a bit at the beginning and have turned it around. The PTA is very active and I have had lots of opportunities to be an involved parent. I can't say enough good things about Mr. Angerer and Carmel Middle School.

This school has got to get a grip on several detrimental issues. First and foremost, the bullying is worse here than any other school I have witnessed. Having experienced middle school with my 4 older children, I know that bullying does NOT have to be tolerated. The teachers and staff talk a good game about 'No Bullying Zone' but it happens every day right under their noses, and they do nothing about it. I'm proud of my son for not conforming to what a 6th grader is 'supposed to look and act like in order to fit in.' This is America, we should be able to be ourselves and not get picked on for it.

I do wish that reviews more than a year old be pulled from this website. Schools change over time, let's keep the reviews current. We've had a good year so far. Coming from a private school for 7 years, and all the bad things I've heard about constant fights and disorder, my son has not witnessed even one altercation. I am a volunteer at Carmel three days a week and it's a pleasant atmosphere. I do wish parents would get their kids to school on time. The tardy line is ridiculous. 8:45 is a reasonable time to start. Good luck to all of those late folks who will be in high school next year. School starts at 7:15! Kathy Templeman

I love Carmel Middle School. My son is in his final year there and is very much ready for high school. The administrators and teachers are very responsive to me as a parent. I will be sad to leave.

I am not on school grounds enough to know if there is a problem with the new principal, but I have concerns that my seventh grader who attends, has had four teachers replaced in one school year. When that occurs there usually is an administration problem. It is unfortunate for the children, who suffer when there is turnover in the classrooms.

Something has gone terribly wrong at Carmel. A new principal was selected who is unaware of what the needs of the students and the school are. I personally have witness fighting, inappropriate language and major issues with educational consistency. It is difficult to speak with administration and teachers and support staff are concerned about speaking up because of the top-down heavy handed management of the principal leadership. There is currently a growing population of parents who are considering creating a group to be on school grounds in the classroom to monitor the environment. We believe this to be reflective of the changing CMS public school environment when one of the best schools in just a few months is experiencing this kind of upheavel.

I believe that Carmel Middle School is the best of the best. It gives my child the best acedemic challenges I wish for her to face. My daughter enjoys this school very much, and could not imagine going anywhere else. There is a band and orchestra course for all grades. There is an art class that can be held during electives. There are so many sports to choose from. All you need is a physical, and at least a 2.0 average. My daughter made the basketball team, and she is currently a cheerleader. She is also involved in Science Olympiad, which is held once a week. She ADORES Science Olympiad, and can not wait until her competition in March. As many schools, there is a PTA board, and there are several choices that a parent can do if they wish to help out the school with anything.I STRONGLY RECCOMEND CARMELMIDDLESCHOOL!
