    "We moved to the CCSD over the summer. Our daughter started 4th grade at KES. After a couple of months we were starting to get concerned about the school district. I called GFMS to see if I could set up a meeting with the principal for a tour and to have some questions concerned answered. I was transferred around to a couple different people before being told 'We don't do that. There are too many parents in the district to have individual meetings, you'll just have to wait until the spring when we have orientation for everyone.' We have since pulled our child from the district and have her in a private school. If they don't care about us, I can't care about them."

    "Mr. Manfredonia's positive attitude, work & concern sets the tone for this great school. He cares about each student and truly wants to know if there is a problem. He now is handling 7-8th grades with Mr. LoPresti handling 5th and 6th but they work together hand-in-glove. Participate in the Science Fair every year. Request Mr. Wilbert for science in 7th -- students enjoy and learn about science, life and friendship. If your child loves music, make sure you keep it in 7th/8th -- it could fall off the schedule without anyone realizing -- they creatively resolve if you bring it to their attention. Orchestra is excellent and my son loved every minute. Mr. Callaghan does a great job...it's a travesty the board did not keep Mr. Stroffolino who made 5th grade bearable...better than therapy! Board must restore the 2nd orchestra teacher. Nice teamwork at GFMS between principal/guidance/teachers. I'm grateful for getting the value of a private school education from a public school. The two nurses walk on water and provide a haven for kids --- caring and kind while dispensing good medical attention...though the board needs to get a third nurse back for 1700+ students!"

    "Like the elementary schools in the CCSD, the Middle School has a great deal of help for kids with IEPs (Special Ed) because it is State mandated but if your child is just a bit behind or confused, there is little to no support. Also, there is nothing for the brighter of the bunch. If your child is above average, don't go to any school in the CCSD. They just don't have anything for the smarter kids. For example, if you child is above average in math in 8th grade, they will send your child to the high school for 9th grade math! Imagine that...your child will be bused to the high school for a more advanced math class because the middle school does not have the students to make an entire class! Sad. Also, with all the budget cuts all of the sports and most of the extracurricular activities have been cut. BUT, the teachers still got raises. It amazes me how a district can cut all sports in a middle school but still hand out raises. As far as bullying, I don't think it is a huge problem but there are a few students who do what they want and there is no consequence. The curriculum is o.k.. Some teachers go out of their way to motivate and educate while others don't care."

    "The bullying problem still exists and, while the administration was receptive when parents complained, teachers ignored the issues in their classrooms, halls and playground - ridiculous!"
