    Overall this is a great school. We moved here at the beginning of my daughter's 7th grade year. Typically her grades fall a bit when she starts out at a new school. This wasn't the case at Charles she did well for the entire school year. I was personally contacted by teachers who had concerns or compliments throughout the school year I was very pleased with her teachers with one exception. As a bonus the office staff are the friendliest I've encountered out of the various schools my daughter has attended. It's nice to be able to call the school or walk in and be met with a friendly face.

    This is my daughters first year at Charles and it has been a great experience so far. She is in all GT classes and her teachers are great. The band program is also excellent.

    Charles middle school is a really good school. The teachers put a lot of time and effort into teaching the students. The students also put a lot of time and effort into learing and doing extracarricular activities. The students are very bright young people. And will do wonderful in the future because of the establishment Charles has done. So good job to administration students staff.

    Really bad middle school. Poor discipline with a spineless principal. GT kids treated poorly with little to do and few incentives. Librarian is awful doesn't encourage kids to be in the library. If you have other options avoid this school.

    Charles is a great school. The teachers the administration and other staff are all there to help in the education of every child. In 2006 the state test scores improved so much that other schools are looking into what Charles' teachers did to merit such success. My congratulations to the students teachers and administration on their success. Way to go Chargers.
