I love this school so much it truly teaches you how to be a young lady/ man the teachers are tough but you know what its nothing but tough love. our teachers give us such good support. I don't ever want to leave this school I think this school has a little more freedom than the last school I went to had. I hope you guys register for this school it's amazing! Keep up the good work BUMPUS!! ~ 2014-2015 student

Let me just say this if you are moving to the wonderful state of Alabama don't bring your children to this school. The teachers are not very good although we do have a few good ones. But not as many as we should. My child has never had a problem making friends. This school has been very hard for him and its been over a year. The school does absolutely NOTHING to help them other then give them a peer buddy to show them around the first day which was great to find your way but that was about it. I have talked to at least 5 other newcomers to Hoover and they have all said the same thing about their children. Oh and if you ever go to the school the front office staff is horrible and rude!!! They all need to give up there jobs and go find something else because they are miserable. I have been told by several parents that the grades before Bumpus are great and Hoover High is good and we just have to make it thru Bumpus....I think this is unacceptable and they need to step up to the rest of the schools in lots of ways!

The students at this school treat new students horribly! I've never in my life heard children say the things they have said to each other. It really makes you wonder how these kids are being raised by their parents or lack of parenting. The staff is lazy and rude. Teachers are also lazy and rude. The principal? What principal? Not involved.

My daughter changed to Bumpus due to moving. I really hate this school, they are lazy and act incompetent. I truly wish she could go back to Simmons where there was more structure and organization. Its just god awful. Examples kids can't call home if they forget something, if you bring something for your child they won't tell them. Says its their responsibility well if they couldn't call home, and you remembered whatever they left how the heck do they know its there? I've requested more individualized help for daughter and she hasn't received it. I feel bad for my daughter that she even has to go here. Parents spare your children and move wherever Simmons is zoned.

I am a teacher at this school and could teach at any school in town, but particularly love it here. Our principal could not be more supportive or present in the building, in the classrooms, at the lunchroom on the ball fields/court. Most of our students excel in the classroom and we are able to differentiate the curriculum to challenge and assist students when needed. Our facility is the cleanest I've ever seen and well-maintained. The teachers/staff are 'really' friends beyond the classroom and spend time bonding after 3:00 quite often. We are a real family here at Bumpus--with everybody lending a hand before being asked. This is a fantastic place to grow as a learner and be challenged to improve my instruction as a faculty member too. We have some of the finest technology capabilities in town, so what more could a teacher ask for?

We started at Bumpus when it opened in 1999 and have had a child there ever since! Dr. Brown is an outstanding principal. Each of my children have received a quality education with teachers that truly care about students. There are many activities offered and the facilities are beautiful.
