This school has to be a five star school for educating the children of Flagler County. I knew Buddy Taylor all his life and he would expect nothing short of excellence and it has remained so. He was the first principal and a loving, caring man for the welfare and academics of his students. He was famous for his sense of humor but he was also a disclipine of proper behavior. He was an Educator! I miss you,Bud. You are still the Wind Beneath My Wings....Go Eagles!

I think that BTMS is not good. They worry about ridiculous things rather than trying to get their state testing mark higher. It is a C. Most of the teachers just don't care and if you try to get a call back from the principal - forget it. Even the guidance counselors don't call you back. I am trying to look into different options for my daughter who is suppose to go their next year. I just can't go through this another 3 years. They treat these kids like as if they were in jail, they are kids. give them a break. Teachers sometimes forget that their only job should be teaching academics, that's it. (Leave the rest to the parents) Lets not worry about dumb things like earrings, haircuts, makeup, that should not even be of concern to them.

I have worked in the cafeteria for almost 10 years. Our students represent a blend of races,Nationalities and family incomes. Their differences make them unique yet they join together as a group where all strive for a good education and guidence that will form their futures . I enjoy watching their progress daily .

Great school when I was in 6 & 7 grade but when I got to 8th the staff and the teachers were stricked! the students were happy including my self in 6th & 7th grade. I think the new building messed it up for the great and wonderful students like my friends and me.

This school has a bad attitude towards parents, especially the aminastion desk. im very happy that this will be my daughters last year at this school. They do not do all they can to stop drama, the only person whom i have seen any help from was Pat King, other than that the school is no good and no help.

BTMS is well lets say not the best thers fights and people are way to judgmental. The teachers are amazing though. I think if more of the kids there put more thought into their work insted of fitting in and being popular this school could really be great. I think there should be more extracurricular activetys and mabye a volleyball team. BTMS really doent have that many sports and no languges. But spanish for 8th graders is starting next year. Again way too many fights and judgmentalness. Not evryone is 'nice' but the teachers again are really good. I do miss school though, but i think mostly because i miss my friends...

I Love BTMS.It's an Amazing school.I actually enjoy going to school everyday because the teachers I have make learning fun.My only problem with the school is that some kids are really bad and there speaking is horrible and embarrasing.In my opinion,I think kids should not be allowed to say 'bad' words.Other than that,This school is Awesome and i wish i can stay here through High School and it can become a 6th to 12th grade school.

Yes, I consider myself as a involved parent that is interested in knowing what can be done about this School. I don't feel the Principal is doing her part at all. The School is very crowded and unorganized. My child grades have went down for A & B to B & C's. I don't feel that my child is getting the education that she needs. I also feel that maybe out of the six teacher that 2-3 want to do there job . What can be done about this? Sincerly, Involved Parent

No sports, nothing for kids to get excited about.

The only gifted middle school program is on this campus. It is beginning to look like an arts magnet although there is no formal designation. There are electives in drama, musical theater, chorus, band, jazz band, and show choir. There is a competitive dance team. Extracurricular activities are growing each year along with the student population. The campus is dark and depressing but the academic program is adequate and improving. Test scores indicate the teachers are preparing the students. There are some behavioral issues but I suspect that is the case at most middle schools.

Buddy Taylor Middle School has a great academics program. The staff at the school are very helpful and great and put all their effort into the safety and education of our children. The only thing this school is missing are extracurricular activities after school and also after school sport teams.
