Cleveland middle school works very hard to keep discipline under control, encourage kids to be successful, and provide a great learning environment for their kids. The administration supports their teachers , as I have heard many times over. I as a parent have been in the building several times and substitute there. I don't necessarily agree with every discipline decision made, but no one knows what they have to deal with unless you are in their shoes.

According to my experience with CMS, every student is a bad student. Most of the teachers act as if they're just there to collect a salary. There are a few that still teach but they are the exception. Don't blame the teachers, blame their leadership. I grew up in Cleveland but apparently much has changed. They are quick to severely discipline even the smallest of actions and never reward any good action. Being a parent has no influence and they will tell you as much. I have been lied to. They make up policy's that aren't in their handbook, and will tell you your child has no rights. Everything is a battle with them. You have to experience this level of incompetence for yourself to understand my frustrations with this school. Talk to any parent in this district and you will find the same story. The high school is excellent but for middle school I would recommend sending your child to Jennings or any other school.

Teacher quality is less than par- Most teachers act as if they're just getting through the day. Principle leadership- Where do I begin. Obviously got the job because he is related to practically everyone and it shows. What leadership. Words can't express the lack of. Working with the principle is impossible. Parent involvement- seems to be discouraged. Your son/daughter may as well be in the military because that's how they will be treated as students and you will be treated as parents. Athletics- is a joke. I'm sure this happens in most smaller schools but since we've moved here we've learned that your last name trumps your athletic ability.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
