    There are some fantastic teachers in the Middle School. One in particular is a Mr. Dwight Goss. He really cares about his students and makes learning fun.

    I am a 7th grade cheerleader here at CMS. The new principal has been doing an excellent job as well as Mrs. Murphy the Asst. Principal. We have a great cirricular here and an awesome extra cirricular program. A lot of my friends transfered from St. Marys across the street and they think that Chardon Middle is great! I am proud to wear my school colors!

    The school here is great. I love the teachers who help out with anything that you ask for them to help you with. I am a 6th grader who transferred from St. Mary's across the street. At CMS they have good discipline and great teachers. It is the best school I have ever gone to.

    We are new to Ohio and in the past our children have gone to Catholic Schools and Private Schools. We chose Chardon because of their excellent scores and so far my husband and I have been extremely impressed with the professionalism of the teachers. Keep up the excellent work.

    Many of the teachers are negative and cynical. Other than that the school is a good one.

    I go to Chardon and I love it. I have been to a lot of schools and I absolutely know that this one is the best. I can actually feel like I'm learing things that I just could not figure out before. The athletic department is also very active and helpful. I'm a former cheerleader and I really know that this is true. It was so fun that I really know I'm going to try out again. And I want to thanks my coaches Fussy and Gazzy(Mrs. Fusco and Mrs. Gazdak). Mrs. Fusco is a great Math teacher but I don't have Mrs. Gazdak as a teacher but I know she's really great. I'm going to miss them both when I go up to the Hishschool. Everything else about Chardon Middle School is awesome. Especially the sixth grade trip to Hershey that was the best. I love you Chardon!

    I am not a parent but have substitute taught at the school many times. The learning atmosphere and overall character of the building has always been effective and friendly. The teachers are extremely committed to your children. I am proud to have been a part of it.
