    "Copeland has exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be happier with the teachers and administration. I agree with the other parents that most of the kids can be rude and/or self centered. But perhaps that happens at all middle schools as mean behavior is usually caused by low self-esteem which is normal for this age. If you run into the problems, the staff and administration are caring, helpful and will enforce discipline as needed."

    "I have been involved in many teacher-parent activities. CMS teachers are enthusiastic + most truly like teaching MS students. Children are encouraged to go beyond their groups of friends to explore different activities + clubs. The handbook has clear guidelines for behavior + consequences are enforced. The bus drivers are always in touch with the school using walkie-talkies. If ALL the children actually used their manners all the time, there wouldn't be any problems. But some don't...especially on the bus. Kids at this age tend to pass off unkind remarks as 'just kidding around' + say they 'don't mean it'. I have tried to let my children know that this also happened when I was in MS + HS. Too bad some kids feel they need to put others down. Finding your own friends is important...and making good decisions to associate with people of similar values will assure their success."

    "Comparing this school to others I feel it rates considerable better due to its locale and budget. My daughter attends seventh grade and has had success all aspects of her education. I do see the children group into clicks and pass judgement easily on others. Foul langauge is rampant. Bullying does occur even among 'friends'. Girls are especially competive against each other and often seem petty. From observation it appears the mothers are the 'Not My Kid ' type, which unfortunately fuels the childrens bad behavior. The buses are unsupervised and bad behavior btwn the children on the bus hasnt changed since my son attended there four years ago. Overall much of the bad behavior stems from example. The school gets 4 stars and the parents get 1."

    "This is school is...ok at best, the kids separte into there own little groups (Jocks, Smart people, and the norms) The teachers aren't that great, either the too strict or blabbler on about stuff we don't need to know. The music program is very nice. If you come to Copeland expect an average school"
