This school's classes aren't very diverse. The the school is way overcrowded and some teachers even have to share rooms with others. There is hardly any parent involvement and the behavior is pretty bad. Academically, the school is pretty average and students in the gifted program are hardly recognized at all with a meeting only once about every month and a half. It's an okay school overall but I wouldn't say it's the best I've ever been to.
I love working at Bluegrass. I have traveled the country and worked in several different school districts, but the Bluegrass faculty cannot be beaten in terms of their committment to student success. Teachers here know what a precious commodity they are entrusted with and treat that responsibility seriously and are honored to spend the hours at school with your children. They have high expectations, and do everything they can to get students to meet those expectations, including countless professional development hours beyond what is required. At Bluegrass, it really is all about what is best for students.
Bluegrass middle school is a great school to send your child to. the teachers are some of the hardest working I have ever seen, and it has a great parent teacher organization. There is a real sense of community, which is hard to accomplish with the amount of diversity this school has to offer. The teachers, administration, and even the support staff do whatever it takes to make sure that all students succeed. I am proud to send my son to Bluegrass. The only thing that could make this school better is more great parents that want to be actively involved their kid's education.
I attend bluegrass as a formal 8th grader. Overall it's a great school, the food could be improved, other then that i find bluegrass a great school. Comming from a military base into a public school, bluegrass and the teachers there made me feel as if i was apart of something. Bluegrass has build up my confidence and i think it'll help me throughout my high school years when i attend john hardin high school... Class of '13.
i love going to this school but the food needs work and i think we need more diverse classes in the musical department
For a school this size it is about average overall. The school is approaching capacity quickly and is already running out of classroom space with teachers sharing rooms. The principal has done an outstanding job keeping the kids positive about education and providing a school environment where everyone feels safe. There are many programs in place that children can get involved in but for a school this size there could be more participation. As with most schools there are a handfull of parents that seem to be at every function and visible all year. If your child is an overachiever, there could be more for them somewhere else. BGMS is on par or above the local district and for most, your child will do quite well here.
