Creighton is generally a good school. All my teachers are super nice and care a lot about me. They all want to see me succeed and do my best. The students are generally nice but are a little disrespectful to adults and kids too. My only real problem with the school is how they separate us into teams and how some people feel grater then everyone else because of the team they are on. Besides that Creighton is a pretty good place to go to school and i enjoy going.

The teachers are very respectful and knowledgable. My student is happy with the curriculum and staff. The school is very organized and enforces the rules much like the real world. The school is clean and has special curriculum based on your students needs. The principal is very understanding and kind. CMS is by far one of the best middle schools I have seen.

Poor learning environment. My kid throws up every day before going to school here. It is a factory. The administrators punch in and out as assigned by time but not much else. School grades in state exam going down. Quality of academics used to be good in the past.
