Chapel Hill Middle School Ratings & Reviews

This was our 7th grader's first year at CHMS. Although her core classes were in the magnet program, she shared electives and certain school activities with students both within and outside of the program. For the most part, my husband and I were pleased. We found the magnet program's curriculum to be challenging and well balanced. Many of the magnet teachers have been at CHMS for several years now, despite not always getting the administration's support they need to make the program even better. Hopefully that will improve with this year's principal reassignment. I had the pleasure of presenting on the legal profession at this year's Career Day and found the student hosts (Jr. Beta Club members) to be articulate, professional and very impressive. I do hope in the future there will be more in terms of social activities for the students like school dances, a ceremony for graduating 8th graders, a school carnival (one was cancelled and never rescheduled), and better organized team sports. Although academics are definitely the priority, I believe school spirit and socialization, especially at middle school age, are also of great importance.

I recommend this school for 7th and 8th grade as the 6th grade can not be separated into 3 teams based on enrollment. The issue of separation is simply the mind set of students. Some are there to learn and need to be on a separate team. Most of the teachers and administrators are awesome on working together to handle challenging students. The key to a child's success begins at home versus school. A child can attend a low rated school and still come out on top with scholarships. One of those most critical factors is whether that child remains true to how he/she is raised or if he/she changes with the environment.

I am responding to the latest e-mail sent about the Magnet program. My son is in the Magnet program and has been a straight A student since kindergarten. I have not taught my son to look down on others because we all live in the same world. As a matter a fact he tutors all students and he is just in the 7th grade. He works hard for what he does and we do not have to tell him because he has known since he started school that progress is expected. The Magnet program shows you that time waits for no one and that the real world is waiting for you. Its fast paced for a reason so you must schedule your time. It will pay off in the long run. Just know that not all Magnet students are what you say. They are kind, nice, and have manners with traits that shows through their personality.

Chapel Hill...I'm leaving after have being here for 2 years and...if you intend to send you're child to the Magnet program know that I had been in Gifted for 6 years before entering this Magnet program and personally I prefer Gifted. It's like Magnet is sprinting, while Gifted is a brisk jog. The Magnet moves way too fast for me ,but in Gifted you can take your time to work the kinks out of problems. At Chapel Hill there's a term I call 'Magnet Conceited'. It's when the Magnet kids look down on the 'normal' or Gifted students. It starts because some Magnet teachers think that it's funny to talk about the non-Magnet kids. It's sad, not good, and leads to narcissism.

While CHMS is not the WORST middle school in the county, it is most certainly NOT THE BEST. My child is a magnet student at CHMS. I am concerned that my student is not receiving the full magnet experience. The magnet program is limited at best and does not offer a TRUE challenge. This seems to be due to a lack energy and steam among some of the teachers. The teachers have a problem with maintaining discipline/order in the classroom as well. I hope the new principal can bring about a much needed change before the program loses students.
