I attended this school from 6th grade to the middle of 8th grade and I had so much fun at this school. I was very sad when I had to move. This school is great for outgoing students who like to be involved. This school has a fantastic sports program and Music (band, orchestra or choir) is just as great. The teachers are great and really care about you succeeding. The administration is very strong as well. I will say though, that this school is not for the shy introverted type. Like any school there are cliquey type groups and there is drama, but the counselors are great and your problems WILL be solved. There is a much better handle on attitude problems, bullying, and drug usage in the past two years. I would definitely reccomend this to anyone who gets along with people and makes friends easily. If you don't make an effort to get to know people, people won't make an effort to get to know you. But I promise you will have fun and learn lots, I know I did!

I would not suggest to anyone to send their children to this middle school. They teach to the lowest common denominator and discipline issues have increased in the past three years. Noticed some racial tension too. Not much is offered as far as extra activities for additional growth and some of the texts and methods seem outdated. There is a subculture of meanness with kids who do not want to be there and some teachers seem angry to be there because they have to deal with class disruptions. Not tough enough with bullying. Facility needs updated badly. Great counseling and office staff and a few caring teachers. Math dept is good. Look into other schools first. Send your kid there for a day to shadow someone to see if they like the school culture. It may be ok if they can get in with a good group of friends right away.

As a parent at BHMS I love this school. This is a school that does not have all the shiny new-school bells and whistles, yet it outshines those that do. The staff is truly amazing. The kids needing extra academic support have amazing staff involved with them on a daily basis. The staff really does their best for the kids, and I feel that they really care about the whole child (not just the CSAP score). Check it out.

The school is amazing many fun and healthy activity are in affect. The atmosphere is good and more importantly the student love it.... well at least mine do, the only thing that should be changed is that is the student misses 3 days he or she should be excused of all homework that they missed, it simply put way to much pressure on them. Well good luck!

My compliments go out to Mrs. Kathleen Jones, Spanish teacher. My daughter was always struggling with school and her peers before she attended class with Mrs. Jones. Mrs. Jones connected with my daughter on a level very few can, and opened her up to appreciate things in a new light. She is now doing much better in all classes at school, has a better attiude, and perspective. Mrs. Jones was one of those 'breakthrough' teachers some experience in their young lives.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
