After having 4 children go through BMS, I can honestly say the teachers in the reid house and black house ROCK! All of my children thrived academically as well as emotional while attending BMS. I think the teachers are top notch.

This school is Horrible. My Daughter went there until grade 7, and she had a horrible time. One of the teachers lost some of her work, and punished her for it. The teachers wouldn't help her, and she would come home everyday crying, because she couldn't figure something out and nobody would explain it to her. Another problem I noticed, is that there were a lot of rude children. my daughter would constantly come home crying because she was put in a group with a kid who would make rude comments to her and her friend. She had told her teacher, and the teacher didn't do anything about it. Eventually, it got so bad that I pulled her out, and I ended up home Schooling her until I sent her to Morse. She is now doing really well in all her Classes, and is an honor student.

The current School Principal (2003) provides excellent leadership and maintains disipline to help create a learning environment. Teachers seem to respect and respond to this leadership. Green House teachers (2003) work well as a team and seem to care about students progress. As a parent with a student about to move on to high school, I am pleased with our child's experience at the Bath Middle School. Special Credit should be extended to the Band and Chorus instructors as they are able to inspire their students to perform at a level that exceeds our expectations. It would be helpful for teachers to maintain a higher level of expectation for both the students and themselves.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
