Truly awful school. Staff refuses to involve parents in anything and even clam up when I try to find out what they are doing and why. They refuse to even return a call in 2 years, even if you call 12 times in one week. They are rude, uncooperative, dont care about your child or even have to answer to anyone for their actions. If you care at all for your child or their education or you want to be involved....DONT GO TO CLEVELAND MIDDLE! I had to choose at least one star for rating before it lets me submit this. Actual rating is negative 11 stars. Awful school with nothing but aggrivation

Not good, they don't care about the students don't return calls, and just think they are king. Parents if you can get out of it don't send your kids to this achool

Wonderful school. Offers many facets for the students to reach their goals, as well motivates them to achieve their full potential. The ICU Program is a program that gives the student a second chance and helps them learn the material that they missed from the previous quarter. Another opportunity for improvement is the YMCA Rockets After School Program. They have such a great program that helps reach out to students and their needs. This After School Program provides opportunities to grow in their academic, physical, and social careers. An A+ School!!!!

I am so proud to be a part of Cleveland Middle School. The Administration, staff, faculty and parents are top shelf in my opinion. The communication is excellent between teachers and parents and the teachers go out of their way to prepare your children for high school.

As a mom of a second year CMS student I feel so good about the choice of schools. She had attended a county school fro K-5th and after complete review and tours of the other schools in our area CMS won our vote hands down. As a mom of a transitioning 6th grader of course we were very nervous.. Our nerves were quickly calmed.. the safety of this school is top notch and the administration and staff of CMS are A+++.....

My child is a sixth grader at CMS and a special needs child. I cannot begin to tell you how blessed we feel that he chose to attend CMS. Our transition has been so smooth. His self-confidence has blossomed under the caring and exceptional teachers on 6 Purple. Because of their innovative teaching, the team teachers were recently asked to present at the National Middle School Conference. WOW! There is also no other school in Cleveland City or Bradley County with the kind of daily parental involvement seen at CMS. I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

This is our 2nd year at CMS and we love it. My child is a 7th grader who is very active in sports, clubs, etc. and still makes honor roll. All of the staff are great to work with and we feel very welcome at CMS. We have always heard that city schools are better in education than county and it is true. We have a lot of friends that have come to CMS from county schools and the children are trying to catch up academically because county is behind some. We could not ask for a better experience so far. Thank you to the staff at CMS for open communication for the parents and the child.

We have had nothing but positive experiences at CMS. My kids are not sports kids, but they've found mentors and interests in Robotics and the Library, and really feel part of the community.

We have had a great experience at Cleveland Middle School. The teachers are all top notch. Mr. Elliott the principal is on top of things, very informed and is interested in parent involvement. I look forward to many more years at CMS!

We made the decision to enroll our son at Cleveland Middle school after attending a private Christian elementary school. What a great decision!! The building is state of the art. There are several computer labs, an on campus television studio and classes in engineering....all at a middle school! The teachers are amazing and willing to help. The extra curricular activites range from all sports to chess, Robotics, and an amazing muscial program. The muscial dinner theater that CMS puts on each spring rivals any high school production. The principal is great. He will meet with you and take the take to listen to your ideas. He has creative ideas that make CMS a great place to be. The PTO is active in making the school a great place to be. CMS is an amazing school!

My child was a 6th grader entering a whole new world with middle school. His color(group) was Green. We had a great experience with his teachers. Yes, my child does plays sports so not having 2 hours of homework every night was a blessing. We have had a positive experience in the City Schools so far. Thank You!

My child has gone to CMS for 2 years now, has played sports and gotten good grades. I don't know what is up with some of the teachers but they seem to hate kids and their ruining it for the other teachers that love them and still love to teach. Yes I believe change is needed there, my child will go to a county school next year. JR

What has happened in the city schools? I t seems if you have an troubled child, there's noone to help. The schools idea ofdealing with behavior problems is to outsource to an appointed judge or lawyer. If you are not living on the north side of Cleveland with a padded pocket you child wont survive. Another problem in CMS is the dress code. This again was handed down from a elected financailly stable school official. It hasn't helped any thing just caused parents to have to spend more money. Again this above and beyond the parents- whose the kids belong to. THey have no say so about raising there very own children. The schools tell us anymore what to do with 'our kids'. The start time shoud be considered maybe changing itfor the children- so thery can get a good nights sleep.. Anymore it is hard for theme to get8 hourssleep.

CMS is in desperate need of some major changes. If your child is not in sports and his parents are not rich or influential in the community then your child gets no consideration. They simply do not matter. School officials are experts in avoiding parents of the 'nobody's'. Even simple things like being left off the Honor Roll list printed in the local paper at the end of each semester even they maintained the required grades or never making the Beta Club list that is reported nationwide. All awards are presented according to the prestige attached to the last name of the childs parents. It is a real shame.

I am disappointed in CMS. Principle and teachers. If a student is having a problem in classes parents are not notified, you find out when grade cards are sent home. A requested conference from a parent is treated as an imposition and correspondence with the principle is ignored. Parent involvement is limited to the 'chosen' few. We are limited in Cleveland in our choices of Middle Schools but things at CMS need to change drastically. We shouldn't have to chose the lesser of the two evils when it comes to our childrens education.

I feel its the best Clev. has to offer but am not pleased when I compare it to my other childs school outside of Clev. High turnover in the sports area with coaches and the fund raiser money not being applied to the area for the sport that raises the money should be a deterrent for any family who has multiple athletes. I do not feel I can communicate openly with many teachers because children in the past have been treated unfairly from that point on and eventually have left the school all together.

I cannot say I would recommend this school to anyone. When you attempt to resolve any problems they are only answered via email. When you schedule parent/teacher conferences, the teacher you most need to see is never in the meeting. Attempts to reach the principal also go ignored. If you have any questions, concerns or problems they do not want to know about it. The only way I could recommend this school to anyone is if they never needed to communicate with teachers or staff and they didn't mind their child having 6 hours of homework everynight.

Cleveland Middle School strives to be a leader in Middle School Education. Numerous extracurricular activities are offered both before and after school. Teachers are willing to assist students in learning. Clevelans Middle School is community oriented, having recently raised over $10,000 to build a Habitat for Humanity home for a handicapped couple. Great things are happening at Cleveland Middle! Parents are always welcome!

Perhaps the new principal will do a better job. The former one lacked ability to lead. The favortism kept us out of volunteer groups whereas we were very active before. There are some very good teachers there, but the overall flavor is bad. By the way, some of the coaches are downright 'remedial' in their dealings with young people who do not choose to go out for sports.
