alright school, good programs and teachers but many bad students with diciplinary problems, the bulding is in bad shape , the thing is practicaly falling apart!!!!!


Posted May 23, 2011

this a totally awful school for children. my child is an honor child who loves school and gets or used to get up every morning to go to school. she was bullied and treated like dirt by teachers and princpal who promised to handle this and did not care. my child cries everyday to have me come pick her up . i keep encouraging her to go to go. The princpal is totally inept to handle things. he didnt even know he had the wrong child and wrong year when he was ignorant with me and told me(the mother of three) i had the wrong child. yep this is where i want my child educated!!!

the new principle of BMS has been great help unlike the old principle who was not as willing to help the students. I believe that the new principle is awsome

In Jan 2010, this school received a new Principal. The school has already improved in all areas. He is working on increasing educational standards, parental involvement and general improvement of this school. He is available to everyone who wants to talk to him. We need more parents involved.

this school is not enjoyable for my child. the school is very small with no lockers so she almost breaks her back carrying her items from class to class. she finds the desks and chairs uncomftorable

This school helps kids with academics and they have great choice of sports,clubs,and activities.

Although this school has great potential, I do not believe enough is currently being done to reach it's potential. There is too much emphasis on on the negative issues and not enough focus on positive encouragement. I also do not believe there is adequate accountability on the teacher's part for academic short comings. There are some very bright teachers and students at this school as well as some innovative learning programs, however, this is all usually over-shadowed by disciplinary problems, school building/campus conditions and low moral. Parental involvement and communication between the school and families are two of the areas that, if improved, could make a big difference for this school. I'd say - worth the effort.

some of BMS teachers do not educate the students. They give them information and expect the students to figure out the process on their own. They are more interested in the discipline policy when the children slip up. They do not treat the kids equally. They want parents to be involved but they don't notify us of ongoings.

I find that the school is too politically connected and the best interest of the child is not first abd foremost.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted July 12, 2005

This is a great school. The Principal and staff always worked with me and the needs of my children. The school has high test scores and many advanced classes for the above average student.

Posted September 9, 2004

BMS discourages parental involvment to the highest degree. Once you enroll your child there, you will feel as though you've placed them in military school. The administration feels that boys bathroom stalls do not require doors because of issues with weapons and brutality. At the same time, girls stall doors do exist. The military type of leadership is fine for children with disciplinary problems. It is difficult to address concerns with the administration because they seem to forget when parents ask for answers, they actually want to know the answers. For some reason it is forgotten that human rights are not left at the door entry. As Woodrow Wilson stated ' We as citizens own these schools'. I think it's time that some administrators are reminded about where their paychecks actually come from. I highly do not recommend this school. Better schools are available in the nearby area.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
