    "I am a former student of CVMS, and I now attend Torrey Pines High School. One of the reasons I chose to attend CVMS over Earl Warren was its proximity to my house and its advanced math classes. When I was attending, there was a program for students who were way ahead in math to take a couple of classes at Torrey Pines High School. I didn't end up getting that far in math at CVMS, but it was good to know that I had options. Now I hear that they even opened up an Algebra II/Trig class right there at CVMS with ten or so students, and it amazes me that so many kids are getting that far ahead. Now that I am Torrey Pines, I am completing Multivariable calculus, and it's great to know that I've been challenged and not forced to sit around in a class I don't belong. CVMS is far from perfect, but given that it is a public school with comparable or even superior academic opportunities to those at nearby private schools, this school is definitely a great option."

    "Where to start. How about overcrowding? Carpool is a nightmare with rude parents cutting in line, rude kids sauntering across the street against the red light so traffic can't move- it's gridlock. Same goes for the classrooms, seriously overcrowded. The campus is dirty, the track in poor shape, the field unkempt. The parents are smug about test scores, but all that rote learning comes with a price. My kids were aware of rampant cheating; the bullying was intense and the partying and sexual activity (just ask anyone about the infamous parties and Highlands shopping center shenanigans) were outrageous. One of my kids was failing a class due to being overwhelmed with busy work and the teacher never contacted me till it was almost too late. Test scores aren't everything, parents, and Carmel Valley is not the "be all and end all." Your child would be much better off at a 6-9 inclusive school with fewer students and less ridiculous pressure."

    "RUN AWAY from this school as quickly as you can. Choice your middle school student out and go to EARL WARREN MIDDLE SCHOOL in Solana Beach. ~It is overcrowded. ~It is very dirty and unkept. The janitor does nothing and the school is filthy dirty. The floors are disgusting. Not sure when they clean anything. ~It is not up to par with current technology. The school district knows it, but won't invest in upgrading the technology systems. They expect the parents to pay for it. Don't we already pay enough taxes? ~White kids are NOT the majority. Chinese and Middle Eastern Indian kids get preferential treatment at this school. ~Parking is a nightmare. Poor city planning. ~Most of the teachers are great. But, there are a few rotten apples. ie, one of the male PE teachers ~The admin working the front desk are not friendly. I think they are overwhelmed with the overcrowded school and the filthy working environment. ~School lunches are over priced, fattening, and greasy. No fresh fruit bowl. No carrots. No celery and peanut butter. Oh, they do sell a small slice of pizza for $3.00. My older kids were fortunate to attend other middle schools. Yours should too."
