I'm not sure what the other person who wrote a review about bulling is talking about. Unfortunately, she must have just been around the wrong kids because I am new here also. Our experience has been awesome! We came from cyfair school district, which is ranked 1st in Texas and although the level of education seems easier here, the teachers are more willing to help. This is a small school and if you just communicate with staff I know they will help. Overall.. A+

My family and I just relocated here from Central NY state where the schools are stellar and every effort is made to keep bullying out. When considering this move, I decided I wanted to live in the calallen district so that my children could continue to receive a stellar education. I thank my lucky stars now that I am only renting and did not buy a house because I hate this school district. My 6th grader, in the six weeks we have been here has become depressed and withdrawn because the bullying is relentless. She has rumors spread about her, kids will deliberately deface her class work (to the point of having to start over) if she gets up to use the restroom or sharpen her pencil, she has been punched, slapped, tripped and humiliated and the staff doesn't seem to notice or care. I don't know how a child could be expected to learn in that sort of environment. If you have a child that fits in, this may be the school district for you. If your child is a bit more of an odd duck, you may want to think twice before buying a home here.

Honestly this school isn't really a good school must students get treated better than others like some kids get away with certain things and they shouldn't And some get in trouble for this stuff. This school treats the kids that dont have much like they dont belong and the rich or higher class like they are innocent. Like treat them equal at least.

My daughter is doing so much better at Calallen than she did in her elementary school in Amarillo. Sleepy Hollow was a so-called Blue Ribbon school but they failed in every other way possible. They even missed that she was gifted. CMS has brought out the very best in my child. I don't see any of the problems mentioned in the previous reviews. And as far as being too strict goes and hating the dress code, I don't see how they could function without it. Middle school kids are very immature, I am a psych nurse who worked with kids this age and trust me they need all the structure they can get.

My daughter attends this school and is in her last year here and will be moving on CHS. She has had a pretty good three years and made tons of friends and for the most part had pretty good teachers. My main complaint and problem is with how certain studends at this school are treated ten times better than others and seem to get away with anything. I did not believe it when told by my daughter and her other friends until I started getting more involved with volunteering. I then saw this with my own eyes and it's done very openly. Certain students can use their cell phones when others loose theirs if they even take it out. The students also never get into trouble no matter what they do and so they take advantage of this. In this town its all about who has money and who you are!

The teachers and staff in the school are too worried about the 'gossip' of the students and their parents that they forget that they are educators. The priorty should be the children's education, however this is not the case at CMS. Forget about having any privacy when it comes to your child if they attend this school. If there is an issue, problem or concern, the staff feels the need to let everyone in the area know. Unless, you are a parent that kisses up or monetarily contributes, you are no one.l

Mr. Flores had been great with both my boys. It is a school in which the teachers strive for excellence. I have been so impressed with several of the teachers and I don't think they get enough credit or support from the parents.

This middle school is not fun. I had an awful time becuase the administraters are so strict and wont let the kids have ANY fun. And the dress code is AWFUL! But the high school is 10 times better! I learned so much in high school, while having fun.

As a parent of an incoming freshman as well as an incoming 6th grader I have to say that I have been extremely satisfied with CMS. The faculty and staff are awesome! I look forward to another 3 wonderful years at CMS.

We are new this year and have been happy with the school and staff. We moved from a small school and were concerned about safety. My child feels safe and loves the teachers and has made some great friends. We have have had no problems.

Kids in this school are cruel. The staff doesn't seem to notice or care. Academically, my child has gone down since attending this school. Emotionally, she has become withdrawn, and has begun to get into trouble. All in an attempt to 'fit in'. Had I known anything about the area before moving here, I would never have chosen this district. They have better test scores that some of the other schools in the area, but that seems to be the main interest for the administration...test scores. Parents...beware!
