This is the worst school my children have ever attended I haven't had a problem with the teachers. The students are bullies,and have no respect for anybody,It's sad when children don't want to attend,any activities,because of bullies,something needs to be done.

This school is soooo much better than it was about 15 years ago. The teachers are very concerned about their students well being and so many of the rooms are taking on such a modern look. The students are loving it.

Batesville Junior High School is a wonderful school. The teachers offer great support and they really care for each and every student. I honestly can say that my child has gotten a better education here than anyother school she has been enrolled in.
