    I don't really like this school because I get picked on and no one cares to does anything about it

    I dont think the teachers counslors nor principals really care. When a child is struggling with their grades pick up the phone with your concerns. I did as a parent but we still don't feel that teachers counselors nor the principals care enough to make that initiative call or conference a meeting. This school also uses a lot of student (interns) teachers. A LOT!

    This is a horrible school never send your children here. Although some teachers are very polite most are unprofessional and rude. They never do anything about bullying. There "motto" is no place for hate well my daughter is a hispanic and even teachers dont like her because of that. there is also many fight that happen there.

    My daughter started her 8th Grade after moving from several schools and states. Her experience with the students at Conrad Ball has been very negative and my interactions with the staff have been unprofessional and distant. She has only attended 4 months and we are glad that she will only spent a year here. We have a plan to remove her if she is met with more bullying. She is a very sociable and bright child that is now not enjoying school for the first time. The kids are mean and bullying is tolerated and bad behavior is accepted. My daughter has had a few very positive experiences based solely on a couple of exceptional teachers.

    Excellent school doing fantastic work with Technology! Great friendly staff I highly recommend checking them out getting a tour talking to CURRENT parents before you count them out.

    even though this school has great club opportunities I have to say my child wasn't challenged. My opinion is Conrad Ball is behind in curriculum. I feel this year was a wash.

    Staff and faculty need constant reminders of medical conditions ( even serious ones) and educational needs. They say they read I.E.P but fail to meet even the basic reqirements on it. You have to always stay on top of things in this school or your child will fall through the cracks. You are treated like a bother for making sure your childs I.E.P is met.They will never admit to any wrong doing and turn it onto the parent. This school by far has been the worst school for my child who has unique learning needs and also has medical issues. I have talked to other parents and I am not the only parent who has gone through this. Children should have to struggle this bad in a learning environment.

    although the teachers have been helpful and understanding. the kids are pure mean and nothing get s done about it. same kids same prob and no one cares. DONT SEND your kid here if its a girl. to much drama I know all schools have some but the rumers spread here are verry hurtful..

    All interactions I have had with Conrad Ball have turned out positive. Things will not always be 100% excellent however I do know the staff and administration at this school go above and beyond what is expected of them. If there is an issue to be dealt with- large or small- there will always be someone there to help find a solution. Staff are prompt to reply and very open to helping ALL students no matter the situation. I would have no qualms in sending a child to this school- I know they would be fed (even if they didn't have lunch money) cared for (even if they were having an "off day") and acquired new knowledge of some kind throughout the day. With everything that goes on in a student's life the staff at Con Ball do an amazing job of meeting the student where they are and working up. Keep up the superb work T-Birds!

    I have a 6th grader and an 8th grader at Conrad Ball and we have been continually impressed by the staff at this school. Yesterday for example I emailed the principal with a question and by the end of the day two of my son's teachers had personally contacted me to be certain my son had everything he needed to succeed in their classes. We have observed this level of dedication from every teacher and staff member with whom we have interacted at CBMS. In addition to academics CBMS offers a full roster of extra-curricular activities clubs and sports and the teachers who facilitate these groups are nothing short of outstanding. Further Mr. Elias who took the job as principal last year has done a phenomenal job of ascertaining student needs are met by making changes to the bell schedule grade-level teams etc. He isn't afraid to challenge the status quo and continually makes improvements to best address the needs of the students. I cannot say enough about how pleased we are with CBMS.

    Conrad ball has excellent teachers and staff. The teachers go out of their way to help students during and after school. They recently received a grant for IPads to help aid with textbooks and also to keep up to date on new information.

    My sons have thrived at Conrad Ball Middle School. The teachers are very responsive to e-mails phone calls and visits when there were any concerns. My oldest now in high school in 8th grade found his own motivation and talents through the team of teachers that worked with him. He came home with an "F" on his first science lab but with the support of the teachers and communication with us he was able to work very hard and "find his own talents" and by end his 8th grade year with 1 B and the rest A's! He is now in the Gifted and Talented Program and enjoying the Pre-AP classes he is now in. We don't think he would have been identified as Gifted and in Pre-AP WITHOUT the teachers and administration at Conrad Ball Middle School! Wonderful School without any doubts!

    I'd like to share how deeply I appreciate the staff at Conrad Ball Middle School. I've been so impressed by the level of professionalism and compassion that I've witnessed and experienced and my child feels truly cared for. They go above and beyond what their job requires. ConBall is a great school!

    Conrad Ball is a wonderful school with caring teachers and staff. My child was very shy and after sharing that with his teachers they went out of their way to encourage him and he became an outgoing young man who carried that through high school and into college.

    Expectations are low - Teachers require very little of the students principal responds positively if you agree with her sarcastically if you don't - to both student and parent. Decisions are made then changed without follow-up with parent. Test scores are low. My child left the school under-achieving and little understanding of what it will take in high school to achieve success. The entire system lacks motivation and enthusiasm.

    This school is repulsive. My straight A student was physically harassed over and over and nothing was ever done to protect him. They protect the confidentiality of the "bully" and his so called punishments but will not tell us what they were. Obviously was unsucessful after a hear and a half I removed him and had to home school until High School Level...Beware of this school and its principal

    In my opinion Conrad Ball Middle School is the worst school ever. Do not send your kids there because sending mine there was one of the biggest mistakes in my life.
