I know this school is known for it's excellence in this area. However, my daughters experience last year included bullying and an extreme drop in her grades. Even after multiple attempts to do something about it, she was still targeted. The bullying she experienced was mostly racial. It's a sad situation, especially given that she has been raised with the values of equality. I'm afraid her experience will effect her later. Good luck, some students excel, mine did not.

Blackhawk Middle School Is a wonderful school. If you are moving to Ft. Wayne I would definitely suggest Blackhawk. I'm currently in 7th grade and I can't say anything bad about the school and it's satff. BMS excels in academics, as well as sports. There is something here for everyone!

Blackhawk Middle School Cares. Teachers are involved in several extraciricular activities, sports, clubs. Parents' involvement with students and school activities is high, this involvement sets Blackhawk apart from other schools in an exceptional way. Being involved makes for more and greater success!

I personally went to this school and plan on sending my youngest three children there as well. This school offers so much that other schools in our area don't...like drama, shop, and school performances! To this day, I remember the school support on game days and at pep rallies! I remember the school song and cheer that went with it to this day. Other schools do not have the support and closeness that this school offers. I also feel the need to mention that the principal there now was the assistant principal when I was there and he is truly amazing with his students, parents, staff and faculty!

Blackhawk teaches academics and also teaches the kids respect, honor and kindness. There are many after school activities for all kids to be involved. Clubs like The Adventure Club which is often outdoors and teaches kids to respect the planet, the WIC Club which is Writing, Illustrating and Creative Writing, won a Scholastic book award in 2006 for a book the group of kids put together, there is a dodgeball club, movie club, Eagle Care Club, which is a volunteer club and many more for all kinds of kids with different interests. There is intramural sports like bowling and basketball and the common athletics as well. A great school that I am proud of. All 3 of my children attended Blackhawk. ( One is in 6th grade right now.)

BHMS offers so many opportunities for our children. The staff and faculty love BHMS and it shows in the education our children are receiving. This starts from the top. The Principal is one in a million. He honestly cares for our children and loves his school. I could not have dreamed up a better place for my child to attend school.

Blackhawk is an awesome school. My daughter went there and now my son is a 6th grader. The principal is a great leader and really inspires the teachers. Every teacher at back-to-school night claimed that they love the school and the subject they teach. Teachers go the extra mile to keep parents informed on Edline and with daily emails regarding assignments. The 6th grade team is firm yet very nurturing. Kids are set up to thrive.

My son is a 6th grader and wakes up every morning excited about going to school. Any school that can make my son excited about getting up in the morning at 6:30am has to be special. We think Blackhawk is a great school and we are excited for our son and his many wonderful experiences he has had so far and yet to come!

The teachers and staff truly care about the kids. The students are expected to maintain a high level of integrity and rise to meet those expectations. Help is there for kids who need it, available to as much extent as the student will accept. Sports are great. Extra-curricular actives are plentiful, varied, and well organized. Drama department is OUTSTANDING! PTSA is active and helpful.

I go to this school now, as an 8th grader and I tell you now that this has high academics and great sportsmanship. They drill us hard in education and physical education. I am in track at the moment, and I've got to say, it's hard work keeping up with others sometimes, but we're making the best school better, one step at a time.

I think that Blackhawk is amazing! This year, out of eleven other middle schools competing, Blackhawk won five banners and two runner up titles! Every year there is a club assembly where the members of every different club are introduced. There are many different activities to do at Blackhawk. Every one is envolved in something! There are always 'pep rallies' before and after big sporting events and such. This gets every one excited and the cheerleaders do the school song and there is a competition between the grade levels to see who can be the loudest! Also, at the end of the year assembly when the eighth graders that are leaving sing the 'Like an Eagle' song, it always brings a tear to everyone's eye. I think that all of the teachers and people at Blackhawk make it a great place to be! It just has such a great atmosphere!

I feel Blackhawk Middle School should focus more on the academics rather that the sports. I have a few incidents with teachers at this school and have been made to feel as if they do not care for my child. I will think twice before I send my daughter to this school when she hits the 6th grade.
