Absolutely horrible. Everyone judges on appearance, and no one really cares for anyone besides themselves.

This school is amazing. Lots of teachers and staff to support the students and parents. Its very reassuring to know that my child and other children will be in good hands during the school year. Thank you!

I think the school has nice teachers and that Bettendorf has a excellent school system.

A three-year, soul-crushing endurance test. The key is to remember that it is only temporary, and it is possible to make it through and rejoin life after completion.

My son is very disappointed because he knew that bettendorf was going to be good for him but when he got there he did not like it. He stated that very clearly and he said that being in bms was the worst experience he ever had. He really didnt like the teachers in 8 house 1
