9 Parent Reviews for Chemawa Middle School

Our principal Mr. Sean Curtin is the best. He is very hands-on and readily available. He truly promotes the collaborative learning community. He is a watchful eye with our students and always open to suggestions and new ideas. I am so glad my daughter attends Chemawa!

This is quite possibly one of the poorest run schools in the district. The administration is consistently unavailable. Sean Curtin, vice principals, and the campus supervisors allow the same students to misbehave and disrupt class. The teachers try to maintain discipline, but it is clear that without ...  Read more

Chemawa is a very good school. The academic program allows me to constantly know my child's progress, performance, and current grade status on a consistent basis. The school provides a written status of all homework, quizzes, tests, and other projects along with the grades on an ongoing basis. I have ...  Read more

Chemawa Middle School
Riverside Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
