I am very pleased with this school. The teachers care about the students learning and they have helped my son adjust to this new school very well and we are all very happy! :)
I chose Bigelow Middle School based on reputation. I believe it no longer lives up to it. The standards were shockingly low, the principal leadership uninvolved, the teacher's aides poor and the teachers barely able to maintain discipline in the classroom. My daughter felt unsafe at times and no matter how much challenge work she asked for - it was given in a half-hearted way. The majority of the students were focused only on the social aspects and the school rarely demanded that they be otherwise.
BMS promotes high standards for the students, in academics and character development. The chore values are Respect, Responsibility and Love of Learning. Staff really care about the students. Parents are very involved in supporting academic programs and special programs such as visiting authors. There are a wide variety of extra curricular activities, including sports for all seasons, drama, music, poetry, games, etc. BMS is also a Vanguard model school. It is a very supportive environment. The Pupil Services staff do an outstanding job.
