California Trail Middle School is a great school. It has very good academic programs, and there are many great activities for students to do. There are teachers in all areas of music, from orchestra to choir to band, so you can pick your favorite. The 2009 national spelling bee winner, Kavya Shivashankar, attended here. The Science Olympiad is successful, and the school facilities are great. They even have a pool! I love it here at California Trail Middle School.
