It is alright. But we learn things we will never need in our daily lives.

CHMS is a wonderful school! If parents are worried about their 6th graders entering a middle school....DON'T worry! The program set up, to get 6th graders adjusted to middle school, is fantastic! 6th graders love it! The teachers work together to make sure their students, in all grades, get the best education possible! Teachers at CHMS CARE!!

I went to this school many years ago but my mom was a stay at home mom so I was very upset to find out there is no bus for my LITTLE girl!!! Im not at all happy that a school that claims to care about our childrens safty expects a 4 feet tall,50 pound cute little girl to walk alone 3 blocks. I know its not far but in this day and age is that really a good idea?I spoke to many people about this and the only answer I get is " its always been that way" Well times have changed. I think CH needs to catch up, dont you.

My oldest daughter attended CHMS and my youngest daughter is a rising 8th grader this coming year. It's an excellent school but unfortunately, diversity is beginning to raise it's ugly head. However, it's not yet at the level where it has significantly degraded the learning experience. And much of it seems due to nonresidents enrolling thier kids in the CH school system but the administration is working hard to nip it in the bud. The new principal is also a vast improvement over the previous one who left prior to the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year.

I am writing this as the parent of a 6th grader! Today was the 6th grade assembly and some 8th grade girls decided to come to school in extremely short shorts or pajamas. When the principal spoke with the girls several of them were very disrespectful. She sent those girls who were disrespectful home. I am thankful to have my child in a school where the principal expects rules to be followed every day - even the last day of school.

I am very proud to teach at Colonial Heights Middle School. I have taught at a middle and a high school in another system, and while my experiences at all three have been very good, the experience at CHMS is the best. Middle school is a tough time for kids, a time of transition, with a lot of added independence, responsibility, and more difficult academic material for the students. You are always walking a fine line as a middle school teacher between helping the student to develop and protecting the student from 'falls' that would be too painful. By and large the faculty walks this line well, is very prepared to teach their subject area, and is creative and strives to make things interensting and engaging for the students. We are supported by a great administration and have made a successful transition to a new principal who is excellent.

I think that CHMS is the best!!! The teachers go over and above what is required of them. There are so many clubs and extracurricular clubs - the teachers run these without extra pay. They really care about their students. The Principal, assistant Principal and guidance are fabulous. Except for a few teachers -most teachers are great and it is obvious they enjoy their work. The teachers are willing to try cutting edge technology as well as tried and true teaching methods to help children learn.

Although my last child has just finished at CHMS, it is a wonderful school that all my children attended. The comment about the sarcastic teachers though is true in a few cases and I wish they could help those teachers learn to have better skills in dealing with children. I personally wrote several letters to a particular teacher and that seemed to help as my child reported that she stopped a lot of the sarcasism and the 'stupid, retard and idiot' remarks. All in all, fantastic school with a fantastic staff and a fantastic principal. Mr. Green is the best in dealing with anything that comes his way.

CHMS has a serious problem with teachers who don't teach, who are sarcastic to students,and with looking the other way when it comes to 'bullying' issues. Reguardless of what you may think, bullying is not a rite of passage! It is a very serious and dangerous problem!

Colonial Heights Middle school is a wonderful place to send your children. The teacher/parent relationship is excellent. Strong PTO, sports program, clubs and a wonderful WOW sponsorship. can't give enough praise. My daughter has been to 5 different schools due to our military career and the Colonial Heights School system is tops by far. Way to go teachers, parents and children! Keep up the concern and dedication. You are forming our future.

I and both of my children have gone to Colonial Heights schools. My 13 yr old, is in 8th grade there now. I would truly reccomend Colonial Heights school systems. Although, things are changing all the time, you never know what it's going to be like a few years from now, if you know what I mean.

I think CHMS is a great school to go to. There are plenty of electives that the kids can chose from and there are plenty of clubs and sports to keep hte kids active after school.
