It's an amazing school the teachers are great and know what they are doing teachers are kind and students behavior has improved greatly people think they know everything about bartow middle from a rating and drama and rumors but really they don't if your kid is having issues or getting bad grades it's there fault don't believe any lies they make up about why they are getting bad grades. Middle school changes kids.

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 just don't see that anymore. It is sad for our children to be left behind this way. Our futures depend on them.
