My son attended CMS 6th-8th and was in the honors program. He was definitely prepared for a rigorous high school schedule. He had some of the most caring and academically challenging teachers in his 3 years at Cordova Middle.
To the parent that said that Cordova Middle was the worst school her children had ever been to.... The problem more than likely is you. You probably do not get involved at the school. i have an 8th grader that is very involved with sports, orchestra, film and video, and is in all honor classes there and my oldest graduated from there a couple of years ago. He was also involved in sports, orchestra, film and video, and all honor classes. We were very pleased with the school. The staff is very friendly. however, if you are one of those parents that never comes to the school or think that your children can do no wrong, that is the problem. The main problem at Cordova Middle is the number of parents that do not teach their children at home to respect others. It is not the responsibility of the teachers to teach the children manners in middle school. How are you going to file a lawsuit against the school because you do not like how things are done? If you do not like it, go to the school and get involved! Get involved or get your children out of the school. most of all , do not bad mout ha school that is far above any other school inthe Memphis area.
This is the worst school my children have ever been to. Now they will call me all day about little stuff, but stuff they need to be calling me about they dont even call. I have called the board of education to file a complaint and im thinking about filing a lawsuit against the school. They are rude. I personally hate this school and i dont see how its getting good ratings.This school needs to be restaffed or shut down completely..
I have two children to attend Cordova Middle. They both enjoy the school and I myself is very pleased with the school. The teachers are very active and do strive on excellence. My son will be leaving next year to go to high school but my daughter who is in the 6 grade will being staying. She says she loves it. My daughter has a learning and speech disability and even though this school is an optional school they treat her as if she dont. I like that because it gives my child the ability to work just as hard. She made the Honor Roll for the first time every. I can honestly say that they do push the kids as well as the parents to help the kids do there very best. I appreaciate the phone calls whenever there is an issue pertaining to my kids grades. I wil recommend this school to every one.
Cordova Middle is GREAT:) i am now in 6th grade and enjoying it GREATLY:) i will definitely always remeber these years:) This school has magnificent teachers where their goal is to exceed ours:)
I attend Cordova Middle School as of now. I have attended this school since the 6th grade. I am in the 7th grade and so far out of my two years this school is wonderful, challenging but wonderful.
I attended Cordova Middle School and it was a great experience. Eigth grade was my most favorable year. I think the older you are at Cordova the more you get to do. Certain teachers are a blessing to have known but some are very unfavorable. Cordova has a wonderful learning enviornment. However, the principal could have better control over the school and her staff. The chain of command is weak. Problems that occur that you might have need to be dealt with in a more orderly fashion. But all in all Cordova was a great school.

I love Cordova Elementary! I think the principal is very involved and they really care about the academic success of the students.
Cordova Elementary has a challenging curriculum and great teachers who are willing to communicate with the parents. I love teacherease! It is a great way to keep up with student progress.
Wonderful teachers Who go the extra mile. They genuinely care about our children. All the teachers have been very positve -minded and Encouraging to my Child. Most Impressed! We feel Very Lucky. Indeed.
I went to Cordova Middle School when practical I know no one and now I know everyone's name by heart! I love Cordova Middle so much because of the teachers, the students, and the stress free environment. It is one of the best schools I have ever been to.The teachers will do any thing to help you out when you need it. They are the best! The cleanliness is phenomenal. The safety is 100%! The lunch food is always delicious. The staff behind the counter and behind the scenes are extremely helpful! I could never go to a school who could be better than this!
I really must say at first I was skeptical about letting my fifth grader attend a middle school and her being around all the eight grade students. But after seeing that all the fifth graders are on there side of the hall, that made me feel so relieved. She and I both love Cordova Middle!
My son was zoned for a Shelby County school and a friend told me I should give this school a try. She had taken her sons out of the same school and put them in Cordova Middle.Although I was hesitate at first and this move would require a fee, I am so glad I mad the decision to move him. This is the best school my son has ever attended. He is gifted and was challenged for the first time in his life. Oh, and the principal knows every child by name and greets both parents and students in the morning.
