I was a student at this school and couldn't wait to leave. It's ridiculous. The verbal and physical bullying is terrible and nothing's ever done. Teachers witness profanity and do nothing. There are a few great teachers who'll admit that bullying and other things is a very large problem, but there's nothing they can do. They tell their superiors and their superiors do nothing. The education isn't anything to be proud of either. There's no individualism and students are left figuring a lot of things out themselves, and then teachers wonder why students fail. The school isn't very clean, either. I constantly had ants in my locker and they were in classrooms and hallways as well. Money isn't spent wisely either. Athletic teams were constantly getting new gear, uniforms, etc. and things had to be cut (chorus, drama performances, etc.). Favoritism is widely practiced at CMS. The jocks, cheerleaders, and popular kids get many more breaks than other kids. Overall, there are a few wonderful teachers I'll miss that are trying to make a difference but just can't succeed in their conflicted environment. If I had children, I wouldn't send them to this school because of my experiences there.

You have got to be kidding me, is no one talking about the bullying that is allowed to go on at this school? My grandson for one is bullied all the time and they pick fights with him. His grades are falling and I personally know 3 parents who have pulled their child out of this school because the staff there does no more than a hand slap to the bully. Getting a one weeks suspension is a vacation to them. What about zero tolerance for bullying. Parents of these bullies need to be held accountable. Don't send your child to this school. Its horrible.

This is my daughter's last year at Clinton Middle and we're sad to see her leave. She has great teachers and a wonderful principal, as well. She has many wonderful friends there and I love them all. The Tipton twins are both teachers of hers and they are amazing. I hope she has teachers and friends as wonderful at her new school in NC next year.

I was worried about sending my children to middle school because of all the horror stories I had heard. After my children got the hang of the difficult transition between elementary and middle school, they became more interested in their studies, and also in activities offered at the school. We have been pleasantly surprised by every aspect of Clinton Middle, and would like to encourage others who may be apprehensive, as we were, about sending your children to this school.
