    "I love CdM, because it's a community school, and living in Newport Beach, the kids that I've grown up with on my street are the kids in my classes here. Sports are a big enough deal to be really fun if you're interested, but there are lots of other ways to get involved, like clubs (Best Buddies!) and the four leadership groups. Academics are good, but not great. Freshman year is pretty rough. It goes uphill from there, but the freshmen and middle schoolers generally get stuck with the bad teachers. And insider tip: if you're planning on taking honors bio, try and get in with janet dichiro - over 90% of the class does her study group, and it fills up really quickly! You'll want it, because the teachers have no clue what they're talking about. Most of the classes are pretty good, but there are little tips like the honors bio study group for everything. If you put in the effort, you can get what you need. That said, you can also skate by pretty easily if that's your objective."

    "i think this school gets a superficial rating based on it's location. I warn parents of children entering from many of the really solid elementary schools into this program. the touting of their academics is based on a philosophy of teaching by fear rather than teaching by encouragement. This may be a wonderful school if you have a child with disciplinary issues however if you have a child that generally follows rules and behaves they will be subject to the harsh scare tactic methods. The teachers are sub-standard and the students are generally out of control."

    "I graduated from this school, and now my daughter is entering 9th grade, after 2 years of (same campus) CdM Jr.Hi. academically, it is great, however a child's "education" is not all about grades. the school is RUN by parents who are wealthy & as spoiled & undisciplined as their kids. There have been numerous scandals (check the news) resulting in NO (or minimal) consequences for the serious offenses committed by popular or athlete students. teachers who are expect discipline & accountability are bullied by the parents, while lazy ones lauded. We just had BOTH the principal & VP give notice, in the same week. you need to seriously weigh your priorities before choosing this school..."

    "We have never been so disappointed by a public school before. We have lived in many different states and thought that Newport Beach, California would offer our daughter a decent education. We were so wrong. Please note that we are talking about the Middle School here. The teachers are uncaring and unprepared. The principal never responds to our issues, despite endless letters and e-mails of complaint. From the very first day at the school, Ms. Bloomfield (Algebra) was purposefully unhelpful and unkind to our daughter. It was such a negative experience for us at CdM that we withdrew our daughter before the end of the year was over. Not only that, but we've all decided that she is not ready for high school and so we will do 8th grade all over again (with a mix of homeschooling along the way). By trade I am a public school teacher and I have never been so confused by the actions of the majority of adults at CdM. Let's just say that they are all too happy not to be able to help you in any way. A grave mistake we made choosing CdM. Would not recommend it for any Middle School aged child."

    "I really enjoyed this school socially speaking, because of the large student body, there was a group of friends for every student to join and eat with during lunch or break. The education quality was also not too shabby, to say the least. My only gripe with this school was the bullying I experienced throughout."
