    I am a student at Coon Rapids Middle School and I do think rather highly of it. The teachers try to develope close relationships with the students and to my knowledge do their very best to assist them. I respect y teachers. They deserve it. In response to a previous comment special needs students do get the attention they need. I have first hand esperience with it. I am a special needs students and the building has done the most they possinly can to help me succede in my school career-and have been sucessful with it. the ZAP program enforced while bemoaned by the student body is a very effective means of teaching children the responsibility needed to succede in life. I give this school this highest praise possible and while I have never been to any other I can honestly say that the Coon Rapids Middle School deserves great respect.

    I was unpleased with what I experienced at CRMS the last two years. Gang activity violence drug dealing cameras security guards and other problems my child has told me about. I like the secritary and most my childs teacers but I feel they could be more involved and help kids with homework more the diversity is good for young kids. But I would like to see the school be cleaned up and have more disipline over these kids

    The experience over the last year with the teachers and other staff have been excellent. They are supportive of my special needs student and really build a good rapport with my child. Ten stars!!!

    CRMS is a great school it has perfect MCA scores and has closed the gap of achivment as one of the top schools in MN. You could not send your kid to a better school.

    We have been very pleased with CRMS. The staff and administration go out of their way to support the children. There are a variety of activities that they can be involved in and there is something for everyone.

    I think it is interesting that my daughter warns the other one that certain hall ways be careful they like to hit you. Also the in school suspension kids try to get it because they get to skip class and talk all day. I saw it in one class I was volunteered in. I pulled my youngest out because the school has no disciplining.

    Wow! A school that claims to have a zero tolerance policy that I see first hand continually turn a blind eye. There seems to be no control over these students and the children with special needs do not seem to get the special attention they need or are required to recieve.
