Carmel Valley Middle School Reviews

CVMS was such a fun experience overall. However, the school was mainly white and asian, and the science curriculum was boring. There were fights and scandals, but it was occasional. One thing I want to complain about is the food. The pizza was chalk dry and the pick up stix barely had any meat. The district has these lunch sets which contain a main food, fruit and drink. I was never full from it! I had to go and buy snacks or else I would be starving. Everything was also way overpriced. One shrimpy slice of pizza was 3.75. It doesn't look expensive but wait until you see the portion size.

What I liked about Carmel Valley Middle School is the experience of knowing people new in my life and the academics. This middle school has helped me prepare for high school academically and socially. The majority of my teachers were excellent lecturers and helpers. I learned that the classes are made to be an easier level than high school and the teachers made the class experience fun. Some things that the school can change on is the keeping the campus grounds and environment clean. Although custodial is great on cleaning the school grounds, students do not become responsible. What made me partially not feel welcomed is the rebellious nature of the kids. Students start losing their politeness and start learning how to curse. They also don't wear clothes properly such as sagging. Overall, the school is great, but students lose their manners and moral character.
CVMS is fantastic. The teachers are well-known and -respected. Furthermore, academic extracurriculars are especially strong here. The pitfalls of CV lie in its size. There is no way a student will get to know even half of his/her graduating class. Class sizes are relatively large. And, administration feels disconnected/nonexistent to the student body.
