Absolutely wonderful diverse school. My daughter loves it and feels very independent but also secure in knowing there are great teachers that take the time out of their crazy schedules for her and go that extra mile. They offer great after school programs, STEM and AVID for college prep. She was very active last year joining volleyball as well as track in which 6th graders are automatically accepted in to. This policy is great so that they can feel happy participating instead of scared they won't make it. Thank you very much to staff, teachers and our wonderful principal of Culver City Middle School!
My son is in 6th grade. We are pleased with the education he is receiving. He works hard, gets good grades, and is happy. He has gone out for basketball and soccer and is in the bilingual Spanish program. One standout is Ms. Madrid's social studies class in Spanish. He is learning so much in that class. This is a great community in which to buy a home and get a quality public education for your kids.
One of the best middle schools on the West Side, and probably beyond. Lots of families are moving into Culver City because of the excellent schools, so despite the fact that this is a big school, it has a distinct community feel to it. It's our second year at CCMS and many of our daughter's teachers have been amazing, keeping her engaged and motivated in honors ELA, accelerated math, science and, best of all, choir.
My son started 6th grade in August. So far, so good! My favorite aspect of this school is the racial and ethnic diversity. My second favorite is the principal, who has been quite responsive when I talk to him. My son is a high performing student and although I don't know whether he is always being challenged, he tells me his is learning things. He says he is happy at this school - that's what a mother wants to hear! My one wish - a more developed Japanese program. He was studying it for the last 6 years at El Marino, the immersion elementary school. I wish he could be taking core subjects in Japanese, like the Spanish-speaking students can. There were a grant our school had to develop the program - but the federal government took it away during the recession. I hope they get it back again someday. It is a waste to have the students learn so much time studying a foreign language just to have them treat it as an elective. Lastly, I wanted to mention the Cross Country team. It was a wonderful experience for my son. I know he'll want to do it again next year. Unlike the elite basketball team, where only 10 kids make the cut, anyone who wanted to run could participate.
