The Academy has been a very positive experience for my 6th grader. The academic teachers and coursework are very good and challenging without being overwhelming. The The language arts curriculum/teaching does not seem very strong compared to the other courses. Band is the exception to this review. The teacher is very disorganized and often disrespectful to students. Also, does NOT allow students personal choice of instruments, but assigns what she deems necessary. I rate that class a 2 star at best.

I am a 7th grade academy student and I love this school! The teachers are great and make learning fun. They will assist you if you need helf. and go out of there way to make sure you make your best effort!

My son is in 7th grade at the HBMS Academy! It has been a great challenging program for him, a perfect fit. It is a great place for a child who is self motivated and able to be independent with school work. Technology is as good as they make it out to be. Math is challenging with different levels of teaching in each grade. Science is very creative. World HIstory truly expands your child's imagination of the world around us. Language arts leaves a bit to be desired. The course is not big into reading classic novels or critical about kids writing. In general it is probably the school's weakest subject! Band has always been a fun class for the kids with concerts to showcase their work. However, with only one band teacher this year, it can get a bit chaotic there.. Great education overall.

The high ratings for this school, which is actually two schools in one, must have come from the gifted academy parents. Mainstream teachers get precious little parental involvement, and endure frequent violent disruptions among the students.

i attend Howard bishop Middle school and i have been going there for three years now. I am an 8th grader and i am in the academy of gifted and technology studies and it is the best program ever! Of course your gonna say your school is the best but when i was a 6th grader i wanted to attend Lincoln people say we are worse than they are but they have fights every other day and we have won the mathematics competitions since before i was a student they may have a bigger school but we have the academic scores! and also we have the best teachers around especially the math teachers in the academy which are Mr. Rummel, Mrs. Masuda and Ms. Emma they are the best teachers and the really prepare us for high school

I'm not worried at all about my child as she climbs up the steps of her bus on hervway to school. When she gets to HBMS I know she'll be in a safe enviorment where there are loving teachers and staff there to keep her safe.

Im a student at Howard Bishop a 8th grader to be exact. It has great faculty in cluding tachers,students, and you deffinatly learn a great deal. It is not the prettiest school as far as looks though and sometimes thats annoying but it is great with academics. you get to take tachnology as a class unlike many other schools. I used to type 14 words per minute now i type 96 words per minute. Its great with acedemics and students can really excel at Howard Bishop.
