I'm disturbed by the lack of discipline toward the bullies at this school. My grandson just started in the 7th grade and the bullying and ridicule have already begun. Why aren't the teachers and assistants keeping an eye out for the bullying? Does he have to report it and then face retaliation from the bullies?
He's an "A" student, but with this sort of behavior towards him, he will likely not continue with the good grades and good attitude.
What can a parent do to address this situation?
Don't take your special needs child to this school. The nurse is lazy and neglectful yet wants to blame the parents for her inadequicies. The prinicpal pretty much will call CPS with no proof in an attempt to defame character. Shameful!!!! Invesitgate this team of wonder dorks out thoroughly if you have a special needs child!!!!!
Beech Grove Middle School is an excellent school. I had a niece attend this school and I believe that she received a great education in preparation for high school. The leadership at this school is wonderful, the office staff friendly, and the teachers truly like kids and want to teach.
So far, I have had 2 children come through BGMS, (3 to follow) both have thrived with this awesome staff. Class sizes are small and with the Team Learning Concept, the children had done great. With Edline as a tool to assist both parents and students, if my child had a problem, the staff was more than willing to go the extra mile to give extra time to improve my child's understanding of the work. I appreciate the extra effort from the principal, deans, teachers and the supporting staff.
