Poor. The one redeeming thing is that the fine arts program (we have experience with both band and orchestra) is excellent. Students grow as musicians, find challenges, and develop a love for music. If not for band and orchestra, we'd have left years ago. The tech academy has also provided classes that were interesting to our kids. There still wasn't much academic challenge in them, but at least they were interesting. We are zoned for CSMS but are sending our younger kids elsewhere due to the negative social environment, frustrations with the administration, and lacking academic rigor.

My daughter is entering 8th Grade next fall. Her two years at Small have been great! I am continually impressed with all of the cool programming and student-focused learning environment. We are looking forward to 8th grade!

I thoroughly enjoy the staff, students and parents that I work with and who contribute to our Small school. I am currently in my 5th year as an educator at Small, and I continue to return because I truly enjoy the population I work with, as well as the unique programs our school has to offer.

Incredible school that kids want to attend. Emphasis is on meaningful instruction with real world applications rather than STAAR test scores. Kids are engaged in hands-on learning. Most work is completed in class, rather than assigning kids a bunch of homework and do-at-home projects. The block schedule allows students the opportunity for in-depth learning and there is a very large list of dynamic electives from which to choose. We transferred our son mid-year to this school and he really likes it and has rediscovered the joy of learning.

CSMS is a really awesome school! I'm going to go into my 2nd year (7th grade) in Middle School and 6th grade was really fun! We did have a lot of projects and a lot of fights happened this year, but Clint Small is really great school and wish I could come back next year. I made a lot of new friends and Clint Small made this really memorable.
