Testimonials from Carmody Families

My son has had a great middle school experience and I want to thank you. Typically middle school isn't the best years of life, but they have been good to him. I'm one of those moms who went to all the middle school info nights (Dunstan, Creighton, Carmody) made lists of pros and cons, spreadsheets etc. I would recommend CMS hands down to anyone" -- Lisa M., parent 2016-18

(As an educator), "I have been in dozens of schools in Jeffco. I knew what I was looking for and Carmody had it. The school was immaculate. Every teacher I met greeted us and it was evident that they loved their jobs, a characteristic educators know is essential for effectiveness. Everyone I met seemed to truly be interested in meeting my son. He felt welcomed immediately. This welcoming feeling was to continue to grow throughout the year. A boy who did not love school, has realized his potential this year and, as educators, we know this can be life changing." -- Kim C., parent 2016-2018


"I am a very pleased parent of two students in your school. My kids love your school. They are happy and safe and learning!!! I thank you and your amazing staff for that." -- S. Dreyfuss, Parent


Testimonials continued:

"Carmody, for us, has been a place where the staff has allowed the growth that is critical for young teens to experience. Instead of demeaning students or shaming them for being human, Carmody helps guide them, if needed, to see the entire picture and make the best choice for the student. This is a place where Carmody allows kids to thrive, in their own skin, and is so diverse with the students and staff. The hard work that staff has put into Carmody over the years is shinning bright and reaping the benefits of well rounded kiddos!! "

"My kids thrived at Carmody! They were challenged through the honors/advanced offerings, yet not overburdened with work outside of the school day. This allowed them to pursue their sports and music passions in the evenings. Choosing Carmody was the best decision I've made in my kids' schooling." - CMI, parent 2009-2013
"My son is thriving, his experience at Carmody has been incredible, and his teachers are an inspiration to him. He is an outside of the box thinker, and Carmody classes allow him the freedom to pursue his interests. I'm especially grateful for his enrollment in Pre-Engineering since that class provides him movement and an opportunity for creativity."

"To assist our son with the middle school transition to Carmody, I reached out to Miss. Doran. She immediately returned my call and suggested her and her staff meet with us to get to know our son. I was so impressed with the professionalism and compassion both her and her staff displayed during the meeting." -- Steve K., parent 2017-18
