Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

This school was a bit too easy for advanced students, but the perfect rate for regular kids. I also think the lunch could've been better. They also should've added an actual bell, some lockers,p.e. everyday,a progress report every 5 weeks. I think that they shouldn't make kids tuck in shirts, walk in a line to their classes, share a lunch time with other schools,not wear little shorts. Alot of girls enjoy wearing little shorts and aren't able to. Girls should be allowed to wear hoop earings, any colored belt, light make-up,any kind of shoes,a minimum 2 inch heels.At CCMS you also have to give your phone to your teacher in homeroom which is something Frost doesn't have to do. Frost middle school allows these types of things. That why I like Frost. Their academics are on a high level. They also have different classes for each students level. If someone who is really smart they were put in S.A.S. They also have lockers which is the most exciting thing about middle school. Plus P.E. at Frost is an everyday thing which is something boys and girls like. Plus they shouldn't give detention for a missing assignment or for a dumb uniform, at Frost detention is given for bad behavior,3 strikes you're out. CCMS you have detention because you were whispering.While I was there for a short time the only 2 6th grade teachers I felt that liked me was Ms.Smith and Ms.Rourke. At Frost every teacher loves me. Plus the average 30 kids at CCMS for one class is still lower that Frost,because Frost has about 36 in each class, but it's still better. There are still many more improvements that need to be made to be an awesome school.That's what I think they should improve in CCMS.
