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
