My child is a high honor roll gate student at BSMS, but had to suffer having Mr. Tim Mendoza. He is the worst math teacher I've ever encountered. My child was in 7th grade Gate with him and had to be in tutoring along with other students due to his lack of teaching. I've heard from staff members that he is great at math. If so, he is horrible at teaching math! My child says he is very unorganized to the point he gives test on subjects he doesn't teach and tells the students he expects them to fail. He's supposed to be the 8th grade gate math teacher in 2012 school year. There's a 100% chance my child will have him again. So I demand my child be put into a non gate class since I don't want my child to suffer another year with him again. If your child has Mr. Mendoza as a teacher, take them out! Your child will be stuck listening to his outrages, relationship problems and all the randomness of off topics he puts the class through. Save your child the lack of education and drama this teacher will put his students through.
This school has changed for the better under new leadership. There are SmartBoards in the classrooms and lots of technology. This school is a technology magnet school. The front office staff is helpful and there are after school programs like tutoring and adult classes, too. My son is happy with his teachers here. I like the school. I just wish they would get rid of the graffiti that sometimes is on campus.
