    My son first started Conyers Middle school in the 6th grade. I must say that was the worst school year. My son had terrible teachers and the administration was also bad. My son has special needs and not one of his teachers showed sensitively to his needs. The staff labeled my son which impacted his learning. Because of the lack of support my sons grades were low and he did not pass any of his CRCT. I complained may times during the year with no support from administration. Upon my son entering grade 7 the administration changed with a new Assistant Principle as well as a new Principle " Mr White" I could see the change in the teachers attitude which I feel makes a successful learning environment. My son had good teachers which resulted in his confidence being stronger and my sons grade raised to A's and B's and passing all his CRCTS. Now a 8th grade student I get nothing but great reports on my son. The 8th grade teachers are wonderful !!! The principle is available to the parents and goes out of his way to communicate your child's accomplishments directly to the parent. I am proud to say my son is at a school with caring and qualified Educators.

    This school shouldn't be well recommended.Most of the teachers are awfully rude and tend to sometimes hit some of the kids.They are also rake there anger out on them.The lunch staff is also rude they served about the nastiest food ever my chicken would sometimws be pink and I would tend to have hair in it also that place is unsanitary. Even the janitorial staff is rude and some of them don't even speak english.One time one of the male janitors swept up a child's ice cream when they had dropped it on the floor other than handing it back to the student that dropped it and another time another janitor bumped into a student that had a bowl of hot grits in there hand and simply walked away.I can say one good thing is that Mr.White the principal is doing a excellent job but other than that if I could give this school no stars I would.

    I am a parent of Conyers Middle School. I have a High Schooler who attended CMS and a 6th grader who is there now. The current administration has been so helpful with answering questions and with the transition from ES to MS. Mr. White has done a remarkable job at CMS in the short time he's been there compared to my previous experiences almost 3 years ago. I am very pleased and excited about the direction CMS is headed and have several other children who will attend CMS. The current administration in place is awesome and the staff mirrors them. Keep up the great job CMS administration and teachers!! Signed Proud Parent of a CMS Student

    I have had 2 daughters attend Conyers Middle School between 2002-2009 and never really felt that the school had an open door policy. Communication between the parents staff and administration was not a priority for the Principal. My 3rd daughter is attending the school now and I initially had reservations about letting her attend. I met the new Principal and signed up to volunteer and I have noticed a dramatic change in staff morale communication from the school and an open door policy with the Principal. There are the usual issues that come with middle school but overall I am proud to be a Conyers Middle School parent! Parental involvement has increased and I have heard other parents from other schools talk about how they have been hearing positive comments from other parents about our school since our new Principal has taken over. Mr. White has chosen to lead by example. He has garnered much respect and admiration from students and faculty since he took over as Principal in October 2012. He has been an asset in providing vital information to parents and students in a timely manner. I also believe that his vision will take us to the next level of being a great school!

    Our school has new administration and some new faces in the classrooms. Our school is well-known for its academic and athletics programs. I have had some great experiences there.

    I read comments posted on here and there are 2 sides maybe 3 sometimes to every story. If parents are more involved with what their children are doing and visit the school now that the new Principal has taken over they will see a 100% improvement in this school. I have had other children attend Conyers Middle School in the past and since the new Administration has been there I have been pleasantly pleased with the positive changes that have been made. To the parent that had the student involved in the fight....since there are no doors on the restroom could your son not have yelled for help? I hope he is doing well but I disagree with your assessment of how the situation was handled. I saw the news and I volunteer at the school so I have firsthand knowledge of what is going on at Conyers Middle School. Most involved parents will have better information when they choose to volunteer at their children's schools. We need more parents to get and stay involved with the education of their children and support of the ones in charge of educating our children. Keep up the good work Mr. White! We are on a mission and I am proud to be an involved parent at Conyers Middle School!

    I was a student at CMS from 6 to 7th grade. It was the the worst school by far i have expeirenced. The staff is very unprofessional and unsuportive. The band teacher would yell and scream more than teach. The new principal mr. White is on the ball and actually gets active in the classes. There are many fights and the cafateria staff was rude and lazy. Alot of times the staff didnt really punish kids. The worst part about this school is the car riders program. They didnt care about the kids at all! They stood there and talked the entire time and we couldnt hear our car rider numbers being called. The teacher ms. Jarvis yelled constanly and was extremely rude. There are a few good teachers in the school but very few. I am going to the STEM program this year at Memorial. I WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL OR THE DISTRICT!

    Overall disappointing experience for my daughter. She only attended 6th grade before I pulled her out. Teachers not involved lack of communication with parents and just all around disappointing for this crucial transition to high school. And after talking with friends who have children at other middle schools the same can be said of the other middle schools in the county. We will be moving out of the county to find better options.

    The best thing I can say about this school is that during the fights that breakout the children are locked in their classrooms. The communication is slack at best the majority of the teachers fail to ever respond the principal never once responded to any of my emails though the assistant female principal was one of the most pleasing. If they had their act together with regards to readying their children had a curriculum that would teach the children held their children accountable and invoked a true no tolerance policy then this school would improve vastly. The minority race is who suffers most as it is in all schools unfortunately. There are some teachers there that are in the gifted education section that truly do care and stay in touch with the parents. These are the teachers that actually make a difference though they are smothered by the lesser ones that bring the school down considerably. All in all I would look at another district even though the school attempts to get better with each passing year.

    It is a great school just a few little cinks to it

    I am currently a 7th grade student at conyers middle school. I feel that conyers will fail to prepare me for high school. I say this because the school treats student like 1st grade students. We are carefully watched in the lunch line and made to sit with our class at lunch. I also think the school's administration fails to know how to discipline. A plus about the school is their Program challenge and honors classes. I'm currently a student in their PC program and i feel that i lean a lot from their two PC classes. i feel that this school is a little under average if you want a great education for your child then this school district most likely isn't for you.

    This school stinks i am a 7th grader at conyers middle school. First of all there is absolutley no freedom we are trapped in one hallway all day i dont know if all the schools in conyers are like but i dont like because when i went to school in new york it wasn't like this. Second of all the teachers are terrible they dont even speak proper English i dont understand how some of these teacher got hired let alone get there degrees. I'd mhave to say this is the worst school i've ever been to if you live in conyers i strongly recommend sending your child to private school.

    I went to this school in the 2006-07 and 2007-08 years and I think that the school was ok. I was very glad to see some improvements with the lunch. I was in the Advanced Program but now the school that I go to says that the 'Advanced Math' was not really 'advanced' at all. When I was in it it really didnt seem like we did much extra and there were some people in there that I felt like shouldn't be there. I adored some of the teachers but some were horrible. I am an all A student and I felt like I wasn't learning anything. In other classes the teachers made learning fun but with every good thing is a bad thing. I loved the Arts program. Now that I think about it I kinda miss CMS. It was a great school.

    This is my daughter's second year at CMS and from an education standpoint I would say it has been a decent school. My daughter has been in the advanced classes so there hasn't been a problem. From the outside looking in there seems to be quite a few 'rough' children at the school with several fights and bus disruption with not much done to rectify the issues. If your child will attend this school keep a close watch on them and take them to and from school if possible. Because of the 'rough' children we are planning on moving and will probably leave the district as I haven't heard good news about other schools in the area either.

    2007-2008 was the first year that my child attended CMS and I was pleased with the teaching staff and the admin at the school I was kept informed about all that i need to know to keep my child a productive student and see that he passed to the 7th grade.
