Everything that I would say about this school is positive. My son is 8th grader there and he likes Connolly better than any other school he attended in the past. As a parent, I am attending monthly Booster club meetings and people there are super nice. So, my rating for this school is excellent and ...  Read more

I really enjoy the ASPIRE program at Connolly Middle School. The gifted learning is top notch there! The dress code is a little much though.

I am a seventh grader at Connolly and I really like this school. The teachers give homework but there are always fun things to do in class. This year, we went on a field trip to the Arizona desert, looked at Jupiter through a telescope. We had a Stargazing Event. It was so much fun. There are super ...  Read more

Connolly provides so many opportunities to all students on campus. The ASPIRE program is one program at Connolly. The music department, electives, and academic departments provides a rich, full experience for all students.

I feel bad for a few of my daughters friends in the slower classes. You can see it hurts their self esteems and they call them selves dumb. My daughter is in honors classes not aspired but feels that her school doesn't recognize all the hard work done by the schools majority. Aspired kids receive special ...  Read more

She is also in the orchestra program which is ...  Read more

I am a current student at CMS, and it is great. The teachers care and focus on each student as if it there were their own child! I started there in the middle of 6th grade, and it took about a week until I found very good friends who I can be myself around. Sure my friends and I aren't the most popular ...  Read more

I was a student at Connolly from 1978-1980. In these reviews I hear echos of the same problems that plagued the school then: 1) Inability to provide a safe learning environment while ironically imposing fairly pointless rules. At the time I went, the school was infested with a gang called "LVL" -- not ...  Read more

I'm a student at this school, and I have to admit, it has definitely been a mixed bag. The teachers are mostly decent. Some are good, and some aren't so great. The teaching methods and curriculum are constantly advertised as being revolutionary and fantastic, but in reality, they are just average, and ...  Read more
