    Lots of teachers that go above and beyond to make sure that students are well cared for - really cool campus - principals here are the best in Carson City - make middle school a great time for my kids to learn and be safe!

    This school is alright. I think that the uniforms are not needed. People should let kids be creative and be themselves. A uniform might minimize bulling but it doesn't let kids be creative. If they got rid of the uniforms it would be an awesome school.

    I think this school is horrible. On the occasions I went to pick my child up early for a doc appt or the such at one time they COULD NOT FIND MY CHILD! I said she is in this clss with mr.---- They responded with no she's not. I said where is she then? They responded I dunno.. I said well can you call her over the P.A. system. Oh no we cant do that! Can I go find my child? Yeah sure. I'm sure she's around somewhere. Some girls in her class stole some things off another student blamed my daughter and she recieved suspension! SHe wasnt even there!. My next 2 are getting homeschooled and will never set foot in these public schools again!

    Carson Middle School is a great middle school. Being a former student i know can look back and see how much i really learned from this school. CMS has a great advanced math program that is by far superior to other schools. The teachers were very nice and always did their job. This school also had a great vocational program that many students enjoyed. Overall i think that this is a great school and with the huge remodel it just went through it is extremely nice.

    im a most outraged parent! my child came home crying because her teacher let her getting picked on go by. my child has come home with tears in her eyes beacause 8th garders are always picking on her but this school dose no seem to want to care. the nurse let a lice report go by as well. a boy had broken a bone and she gave him ice!!! I will be taking my child away and not ever returning. good-bye

    I disagree completly with these comments. I loved going to CMS. I loved all my teachers. I learned so much at that school beyond academic.

    I was highly disappointed when the first of four children entered this school and immediately exclaimed ' I love this school mom we did this work two years ago in 'XXX' school. This will be a breeze! Not only has my disappointment at inconsistencies in policies learning standards and expectations (etc.) grown; but my children themselves have admitted that they know less now than they did several years ago - and that the 'basics' aren't focused on enough for them to build a strong foundation with. Their spelling writing printing math skills etc. are atrocious compared to previous levels - and I am seriously concerned about how this will affect their college studies ... as are they! They don't feel 'safe ' they don't feel cared about (with a few specific exceptions) and we are considering appling for a variance - or moving!

    I think the school as a whole provides an environment which includes too much pressure on the individual and not enough attention to the individual. They lack an effective and timely approach to student who are falling behind.

    Hi! I think that CMS is one of the best schools ever. The teachers are really nice and they teach you a lot of things. They always offer you help whenever you need it. The offer a lot of things (extracurricular activites) to do and the teachers are concerned about your education.

    I don't think this school deals with racial issues very well as it pertains to African American. I don't think a parent should have to notify the NAACP before the administration sits up and takes notice. Carson City is one of the riches city in the state for African American History but it is not taught as apart of Nevada History or History in general. If you have an African American student going to this school please be attentive to the way they are treated and speak up.

    I am a current student at this school and I dont think the teachers are doing the best they can to teach us. Most of my techers are but when I was in the sixth and seventh grade it seemed like they only talked to us instead of teached us.
