I just wanted to say the poor review about a child with anxiety appears to have been posted last year and again this year. So, parents may wish to consider this when looking at the average rating. As a parent with a child who suffers from anxiety as well, all I can suggest is a school counselor is a great resource for pre or post test anxiety or situational anxiety at school but one needs to reach out to public health services to receive private counseling for your child for free or sliding scale rates and they can work in concert with the school counselor. This would be an issue at any school.

My kid has disability and was bullied by the school. He could not go to school because of his severe anxieties. The school told us to do this and that and I followed whatever they said because I was so desperate and wanted him to go back to school so he would not miss any school day. Now I have a huge debt for medical bills because I do not have insurance but I went to hospital as told by the school . Just want to let the school know, we are now having difficulties and having been moving from one place to another for more than 6 months for that debt in my credit prevents us to rent any proper apartment. I am single mother with four children and we keep moving around. My son lost four months of school. I hope you satisfy. Probably you even read this with a smile because that what you want? Hate us for what reasons? We were new when we moved to this city. We did not do anything bad that you should hate us? I do not know what . Just to let parents know what kind of people run this school. Thanks for destroying our life. Good job. Think about innocent four children 2 years old to 13 years old...I thought you were educators? Educators who hate children?

I have to say that so far we are very pleased with CHM. My child was not challenged at all in his previous school. The moment they stepped foot into this school the teachers expected nothing more than excellence from them. They are preparing the students for college, teaching them responsibility and independence. My child stated that they have learned more, feels respected, and believes that the teachers want them to succeed. In my experience, It has been as easy as an email conversation, with a 24hour response time, to advocate for my child's education. So far a good experience.

I am so glad that my kid does not need to attend this school any more because we are going to relocate ! He learned almost nothing here. He was bored to death in the classes. Very unprofessional principal and staff.

I think this school is just Average or OK. I have loved most of my child's teachers so far (all but 1 every year) and think that most of them are dedicated and interested in my child's learning experience. Where I struggle is that my child is exceptionally smart but we moved here late therefore he was not offered classes he should have been. He has proved himself with scoring well above average on the EOG tests in all subjects and has continued straight A's. He is bored in class and I have spoken to the guidance counselor as well as teachers all of who looked at me as if I was crazy. The front office is never welcoming and I find myself apologizing all the time for doing things the wrong way depending on who is helping me. If I could choose middle schools this one would not be at the top of my list however the elementary schools and high school in the area are some of the best so I guess for only 3 years it will do.

We moved from the northeast (where the academics are supposed to superior), but CHMS was way ahead of my children's old school. This is an amazing school that is led by talented teachers. We've been extremely happy.

As a new student here I think this school is one of the best I have been to. There is no bullying here like the reviews said. I am in 8th grade and there is also not 1 hour of homework every night, actually there never has been at all during the year. The teachers here are really nice and helpful, some of the reviews aren't even true. It is not like a prison here and you can talk during lunch and class changing. Those times are really the most noisiest except for teen time. Yes, there is teen time here. The reviews about bullying and stuff, most of that I have never even seen here. I have been bullied a lot and have been to schools that are like a prison and the teachers and people are really mean. This place has none of that.

My child has a special problem . The school staff were not helpful at all. I feel some discrimination to minors. My son went months without school, they did not let him do assignments at home without any reasons. They laugh my son and his anxieties problems as if they do not exist. The school counselor told me to go to hospital emergency room to get a letter for my son so he can be put on home bound. I did not know that it costs more than 1000 dollars for the emergency fee. The school counselor knew my son does not have insurance. We have to pay out of our pocket. It is only for a home bound medical letter. When I told them about the fee, they just walked away. My friends said it is very cruel to tell us to go to emergency room without informing about the cost. Moreover, it is psychological problem that won't be diagnosed by one visit. I think they have reasons why they don't want to put him at home bound, and the reason is racism.

My child was bullied by the teachers and other students. We have just moved here from other state. My son had problems concentrated because other students kept talking and talking in the class and during assignments. He got bad scores at the beginning, and the teachers did whatever they could so he would move out from the school. After I read other reviews, I understood what have happened so far. I agree that the principal only cares about grades, and she wants to eliminate students with bad grades. Actually my son was assessed by a psychologist and he found that he is very intelligent. It is the school which is too noisy that he could not study at all. What a waste of time sending a kid to this kind of school that does not educate children and only focus on test scores.

OMG, what a bunch of whining parents!! My child did her three yrs. at CHMS and LOVED it, as did I. These are pubescent "darlings" that need a thumb on them...NO RECESS? boo hoo...middle school is HARD people and it only gets tougher in high school. I think most of you still wipe your child's nose and don't expect them to do it themselves. It is no longer elementary school. Middle school and the rigorous academics are getting them ready for HIGH SCHOOL and the WORLD! if it is too tough, home school them because you are going to find all the same issues at any other middle school in Charlotte. The principal runs a tight ship and the AK principal runs an even tighter ship. I say GOOD for both of them!

We moved to Charlotte Meck after living in Marvin (Union County) and I must say we have been very pleased with this school, and was quite surprised how it stacked up to our last school. Our daughter is doing very well in Community House and we have had no issues. She goes to tutoring when its needed or the teacher feels its needed, we loved her 7th grade teachers and now she is in 8th grade and her math and science teacher are her favorite. For us as a family we made the right decision to move to Ballantyne as our daughter is getting an excellent education.

I think this school is okay. I just moved here. About the previous post on April 17 only on occasions is there one hour of homework. In fact my Algebra I teacher says if you spend more than an hour on your homework then put it aside and come to help. I like the before school tutoring and wiki thing. cmswiki.wikispaces.net Here is some info about the school: Grading Scale: 93-100 A 85-92 B 77-84 C 70-76 D 69 and below F Grade makeup: Formal(Tests and quizzes)-65% Informal(classwork and homework)-35% Grade makeup(High school credit course): Formal-70% Informal-30% Math courses for 6th grade: Math 6 Honours Math 6 Math 7 Algebra I??

Given the choice of schools in the area, I suppose this one would be the lesser of two evils and the greater of another. My children came from an elementary school in which the kids would potentially go to one of three different middle schools. We chose this one, because my oldest child had an IEP and most of the kids who knew him from Elementary were going here so we felt that the transition would be a bit easier. While we NEVER encountered a bullying issue - even with a child with special needs - we did find more than our fair share of teachers who are ill-equipped to do the job, and those who are well- equipped are being drowned by so many hands clutching for them to help them stay afloat. The IEP resources are a "joke." Most Resource personnel think that it is their job to just tell the kids what they're supposed to do to get a singular answer right, instead of showing them the methodologies required to get them ALL right (IOW they seem to fee it's easier to do their work for them instead of showing them how to do it). If you have a choice, choose somewhere else. Otherwise pray for a TOTAL Administrative change.
