I guess it is because we moved here from Michigan but we had issues with the school. The building and facilities are absolutely beautiful and remodeled recently. Very light and airy feel. My husband and I are in the scientific and engineering fields and have been forced to have conversations with the teachers regarding information he was being taught. The information was wrong scientifically and mathematically. This was very disturbing to me and my husband. My son was (finding) the correct information and revising his work just to fail on it because it wasn't in the teachers book. As for the math teacher for two of his years he would flunk him if the work wasn't done "common core". I don't know common core and he couldn't teach my child common core in a way he could understand so I had to teach him. The work was shown and the answers were correct he wanted to fail him based on the type of learning style. Lastly, there was bullying when he was there and he stood up for a girl and he was beaten up in first period no teacher was present and the boy had to walk over from another class to come punch him. I had told my son DO NOT fight back and he didn't and was suspended anyway.
I am a current student at browning springs , and I can honestly tell you it's the worst school I've ever been to . The teachers don't know what they are teaching , half the time the have to ask the students what this and that is because they "forgot." The students are very rude and bully each other so much that it is nearly impossible for a student to focus on their work . I've encountered many situations where children are getting bullied or there may be something quite rude said , and the teachers just ignore them . I've never been treated so cruely by teachers and class mates ever until I went to bsms . I've also been treated unequally amongst people before . If you want your child to learn , don't take them to browning springs.
i'm an 8th grade student at BSMS and its awesome. Our school soes have kind of a bad rep but there's really nothing bad about it. It's just the typical middle school stuff you find everywhere. You should send your kids there :)
I'm an 8th grade student here at BSMS and I love this school. The teachers are awesome and i would recommend this school for any new students moving to Madisonville. Our scores went way up and has finished the remodling. You should definately go here!
This school is very nice. THe teachers are very friendly and help you out with any homework they may have. The school has excellant leadership, and the students work very hard! I give this BSMS a excellent rating!
Browning Springs excels in many sports and academics. It is a great school, and has changed alot over the years. If you are moving to Madisonville I would recommend enrolling your child or children here.
Hello. I am a student at Browning Springs. It is the best school ever!!! I would never let my mom move me schools. Its truly great. I would say that if you are moving to Madisonville, and your child is im middle school, you schould send them to BSMS!! thanks=]
Browning Springs is a very great school. They have a new school and all new 8th grade teachers. My daughter is in 8th grade and she loves it. In all the schools she has gone to this is the best. Their teat scores in Arts & Humanities have went from a 74 to a 95. that is good. The sports teams have exeled this year too. Now all we need is for the cheerleaders to win WKAC. (Which they will.)
I think that this school is a very interesting school. It is fun and my daughter is on the basketball team and loves it. I think the school looks better on the inside out because it is newly remodeled, and the outside looks nice as well since they got a new sign. The teachers are all friendly. My daughter comes home and always talks about Mr.Snyders class. I think that he is her favorite teacher. All of the past reviews are very true and real. Their test scores improved a lot. It went from a 74 to a 95 in Arts and Humanities.
When I drop my daughter off at school I feel that she is safe. Browning Springs has the finest learning in Madisonville. Their test scores have gone up and they make sure each student is treated equally. My daughter loves BSMS. She likes middle school more than elementary school. So I just wanted to tell you how much my daughter LOVES BSMS. :)
I love this school it is so fun to go here I love all the teachers here. We do lots of fun stuff here I am glad I go to this scool.
This is a great school. its very nice ever since it was remodeled. I think it gets a bad rap since its a a not so good part of town. but I think its a great school.
I think that Browning Springs is a great school. My daughter never gets in trouble and has great complements about her teachers. =)
I am a new teacher at Browning Springs and I feel this is a great school. I have previously taught in Orlando, Florida and Evansville, Indiana and BSMS should be proud. We have dedicated teachers, supportive administration, and wonderful students!
