I agree the school is the best that Mitchell county has to offer but the staff is unbelievable. Most of them act like little snob nose high school girls. The vice principal is a joy. There is some work that could be done to make the so much better I think that some of the staff needs to get it together and if you don't want to teach or be bother with kids and making sure they get top of the line education then you need to move out of the way and allow a teacher to teach that has passion and wants every child to excel! Get it together bccs
Compared to the other schools Mitchell Co has to offer, the education is unbeatable; the other schools are sub-par in general, & Baconton is the best choice. However, that doesn't make up for the catty, gossipy, judgmental atmosphere that clings to teachers & staff. Kids/teens are synonymous with bullying, but it is inexcusable that the teachers & office staff partake in judging students, relaying rumors, & gossiping relentlessly. I graduated in 2011 & have attended since it opened in 2001. Over the years, the catty, gossiping is one of the few things that have stayed the same since the school opened. On several, several occasions (more than I can count), I personally have had teachers or staff bad-mouth other students in front of me & other students. For the school to preach character, majority of the people on payroll have none whatsoever. There is a handful of people left who truly care about each individual student, such as the principal, vice principal, and a few teachers. Unfortunately, most of the people your child will have to see every single day (esp. office ladies)have the mindset of a snotty teenage girl,& seem inconvenienced & annoyed at your child's presence.
I too was an employee, and still have children at this once great school. I was impressed overall at the begining... now I am dissapointed in everything. Discipline has gone out the window, dress code is no longer enforced, elementary ed. standards have been dumbed down from exceeding the state standards to only just meeting the standards, students who request help on subjects are told they might be able to get some help "next week when football,baseball cheerleading is over". Too much attention is being place on the sports aspects of the school and what "Looks Good" rather than the academics and behavior. Special ed is over worked, understaffed, teachers have no accountability from administration, exessive absences are pooh poohed away..The once great Blaze is now a pretty picture with no Heat, no Fire and only a memory of a once great thing. RIP Blazers.. the dream is dead.
I have a grandson that I put in BCCS this year. It was the best thing that I have done for him. He was in the Mitchell Co. Scholls for two years. BCCS is so much better. He was behind when he started but did not take long for him to catch up. The teachers are the best I have seen and they put 100 plus in all that they do.
I have two children attending the Baconton Community Charter School. I can truly see the difference in them both since they have been there. I see the difference both academically and socially. Moving them to this school was the best decision that I could have made for the educational future. I would recommend this school to any parent concerned about their child's educational and social needs.
THIS SCHOOL RAISES THE BAR ON EDUCATION! IT SHOWS THRU TEST SCORES AND THE PARENT INVOLVMENT! NOT TO MENTION THE ENROLLMENT HAS SOARED SINCE THE DOORS OPENED TEN YRS AGO! VERY PROUD OF THIS CHARTER SCHOOL!
I have been at baconton since the beginning of the year. I love it already. It is very family orientEd and has great learning standards. I am currently an eighth grade student and I love it there!!!!!;)
I have 2 daughters in this school.This is our first year and we all love it.Totally different that regular public school.Everyone is commited 100%.Moving our girls here was one of the best things we ever did.
I am not only a mother of 3 Baconton Blazers I am also an employee. I love our school and feel so blessed to have my children in such a positive enviroment.
I am a parent of 3 daughters who now attend and will be attending next year. We have been at this school for 7 years and couldn't ask for any better. Excellent school, staff, and curriculum!
My children have been at BCCS for the last 3 yr. Over all we have been very pleased with the education they have received. The caring staff and parent involvement has been phenomenal. We feel blessed to be a part of such a warm, caring, educational environment.
My husband and I have 4 children at BCCS in the 3rd,5th,7th, and 12th grade. We chose to attend this school at its inception in 2000. We have been very pleased with the academics BCCS has to offer. Our children are doing extremely well. BCCS now offers chorus, art, cross country, baseball, softball, tennis, track & field, & golf. Even though I substitute teach here, I love being involved in school activities by volunteering my time.
I have 5 grandchildren attending this school. They are in grades k,2,3,and 8. I could not be more pleased. I also teach at this school for the past two year. The whole school atmosphere is very different from other schools. The teachers and staff really care about the child and parents are really involved. The children are wonderful. I would not be anywhere else.
I graduated from this school (first graduating class) in 2006. I enjoyed having the close family environment and the teachers being committed to help the student. I would recommend this school to anyone. The only downside to this school is the way they plan things. They are very last minute with events.
I started school here in the 10th grade & I am currently a senior. The teachers at Baconton don't ignore your questions, they help you! The classes are the right size & interesting too! The parent involvement with the school helps students stay on track a lot.
This school is truly 'Blazing the Trail to Excellence in Education.' Students are pushed to achieve above grade level; those who are behind are provided additional opportunities for learning. Couldn't be more pleased! Love this school and the parent volunteer connection.
I have a son who is in the second grade here. He started in K. The teachers are very committed to the education of their students. My son went from barely knowing his letters to reading books by Christmas of his Kindergarten year. The parents must be involved or no school will work. Love this school!
