The new theme they are trying to incorporate is not affective (the six pillars character) and seems pointless. It has not changed any way we feel towards our peers and ourselves. The school has a pretty fair environment, except for the few teachers who are not as much of a pleasure to be around. The food they serve at school has slowly gotten worse. There is a sandwich line with processed cheese and meat, and the choices in the regular line include pizza, cheeseburgers, dry packaged salads, hot dogs, tacos, wraps which are just the salad wrapped up in a tortilla, and then the daily choice which normally is either chicken nuggets or chicken sandwiches. Now I would like to speak of the more positive things in the school. The support the principals give us are exceptional on a personal level. Also, most teachers give you the freedom to listen to music in class. I also enjoy the tv show in the morning that informs us about the activities and sports going on. There are many other things I would like to say about this school, but obviously there are not enough characters given. Overall, Bernotas has a pretty well formed staff, but not as good intentions for the students.
This school is the best Crystal Lke has to offer for middle schools. Staff was outstanding, leadership A +, and they really care about their children. The environment was beyond pleasant in comparison to the other middle school, and they promote a very pleasant atmosphere.
