I go to this school and i love it! The teachers are really nice an if something or someone is bothering you. You can tell the principle and she will handle it or a administrative! I love CLMS!
I have had two sons complete six consecutive years at CLMS. They loved Dr. Pugh and my sons wish she would move over to South Rowan. The teachers were very helpful when my youngest son was falling behind and discovered he had ADD. They worked with us - it's all about parents getting involved in their child's education and meeting with the teachers. I have read the concerns about the sports programs, and unfortunately, I do have to agree that there was a lot of favoritism in football and baseball. Several of us parents even tried talking to coaches to no avail. My son approached the coach on his own in a polite and respectful manner, but it did not help. There is definitely a communication breakdown about practices and failure to adhere to a practice time schedule which takes advantage of parent's schedules - especially when you work or have multiple children in different sports or at different schools. Overall, Corriher Lipe is a good school.
This school, along with all other public schools, are failing our kids. When I was in middle/high school (late 70's), ALL of my teachers had MBAs in education. Now we have teachers that (if lucky) have BAs in forestry, psychology, etc. There are assistants that have no college education and have no education in what they are assisting with (reading, math, etc). The government continues to pull funding from education - pitiful situation. I am pulling my daughter out and she will be going to private school.....
Had two children go through this school and I'm very impressed with what they do with the resources available. Good principal and teachers. My kids have enjoyed the CLMS experience.
I am a student at Corriher-Lipe Middle School and I think it is a great place to learn because the teachers are always ready to teach and the students are always ready to learn.
I have a child that attends Corriher-Lipe. I am not amazed my the school. One issue I amc oncerned about is the Principal. I do not like her way of running the school.
corriher lipe is a great school, it has great academics and decent sports programs, i went to C.L.M.S. for two years and i wish i could be going there for my 8th grade year as well, when you walk into the school you can just feel the hospitality and friendly warmth, i advice parents to send their kids to C.L.M.S.
i go to this school it is ruff around the edges but it is a good school i would know its my third and last year
This School is by far the best. The teacher are great. The staff as a whole really care.
My daughter is having problems with her school work and I had a meeting with her teachers. All of them were very helpful and concerned about her. They were very helpful giving suggestions and helping me to feel better about my childs future. I've read several bad reviews on here and all I'm saying is that my experience with these particular teachers proved to me that they are kind and caring. This is my third child going through CLMS and I've not had very many problems there at all and when I did, the staff were quick to handle them.
I don't like how teachers and the school is run. If it don't get better my son will be better of home schooled.
I was a student at CL for 3 years. This is a great school. It has a loving caring principal and great teachers. I would know because I attended that school all 3 of my middle school years.
This school is failing our children The statistics show that this school has failed to teach our children basic reading writing and math every year the the average number of children that meet goals set by the state drops. The push to 'raise money' increases and the PTA seems to dictate school activites.
I feel like the principal cares about the childrens education. But the athletic department is totally about favoritism. Your child can be at every practice giving 100% and they are still only going to let their 'picks' play at gametime that don't bother showing up at practice. This school does'nt teach teamwork, they teach it's all in who you are and who you know.
This school has the worst communication between school officials and parents. I have had 1 child attend there and i have 2 other children that i will no way send there. This school will give you a good lesson on the phrase (according to who you know). They are very inconsistence on their practices. Teachers are also signing pep plans saying they are going to do certain things to help your child and just flat out don't do what they say they are going to do. There is no sense of love and care for seeing children succeed in this cruel world. My child was where he needed to be going to middle school but when he was took out of this school he was way behind. Don't move to this district if you don't have to and this school district will make you understand why homeschooling is becoming so popular.
Our school really works together as a team and not as an indviual. But our school is not so great at sports but is good when it comes to academics.
