Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My daughter is in 7th grade. This is her first year here. She hasn't had any issues at this school. As matter of fact she went to a school of choice up to this year and actually her grades are improved and in 3 advanced classes. This school has issues along with all the rest with keeping teachers however I'm happy with this school . Parent of a 7th grader.

this school refuses to focus on the problem with teaching. they prefer to pass the blame on insignificant things such as the color of your childs binder. they are training drones and not teaching children. there is no talking at lunch, they cannot even sit with their friends during lunch, no backpacks, no organized binders allowed.....etc.etc. incompetence at it worst!

This school continues to get worse every year my child has gone here. Not only has it become less organized but the way some of the administration and staff treat the students is unacceptable, it is bad enough to have students being bullied by other students but when adults are bullying students it's even worse. While there are some really caring and great teachers at the school the negatives definitely outweigh the positives. If you have a choice enroll your child somewhere else.

Too many disrespectful, unruly kids there, looking to cause fights, do drugs, and lead others down the wrong path. Worst mistake I made was to send both my daughter, then my granddaughter there..

Bartow has a wonderful office staff. They are always friendly and ready to help you with any questions or concerns. The principal keeps everything in line and organized which makes me feel at ease about my child attending Bartow Middle.

I think that BMS could do more for it's students. I think that there is too much focus on FCAT and not enough focus on teaching things outside of the realm of FCAT. I belive that Polk County School Board should think more about educating the students then just pushing them through. The parents need to be more involved in their child's education...you just don't see that anymore. It is sad for our children to be left behind this way. Our futures depend on them.

Bartow Middle School, known as BMS, is a wonderful institution of learning. The teachers there are caring and are very qualified. BMS has over 5 nationally board certified teachers, with more teachers obtaining their national certification every year. The adminstartion is also very nice.
