  • CPMS is the absolute best school I have ever attended. I am so excited about the 8th grade trips we're going to take. My grades are straight A's and B's and I constantly get rewarded for that. There aren't as many fights as people claim, but that's their opinion.The teachers are wonderful in grade on pod A except for one. She doesn't even teach but it's whatev. BYE
