Overall I think Bothwell Middle School provides students with a positve learning atmosphere. The counselors are truly caring people and are there for the best interest of the children. Most of the teachers have been attentive and genuinly care about the children's education. The no-bullying policy is taken very seriously and I feel my child is safe when going to school daily. The special education / 504 policies could be better. Teacher / Parent conact is limited even in an IEP or 504. I'm sure this is because of limited staffing to the number of students. My child has succeeded at Bothwell but a child who struggles more than mine may have trouble with the limited one on one help. Bothwell, overall, is a good school. I would not have a problem recommending Bothwell to a family.

The teachers here don't care about the kids and some even insult them. There was six out of the many teachers I had that actually helped and explained things. Some people need raises and others need to be fired. It's not the worst school but definately not the best.

Bothwell, like most schools, has it's share of young and exciting teachers, and teachers who should have retired years ago. I can only speak to my child's experience, but her 7th grade was her best academic year to date! Her teachers were excited about learning and loved coming to work each day, and that in turn excited the students. The new principal has many ideas for changes at Bothwell that I feel are innovative and forward-thinking. Academically, the school day includes 'wheel' classes where students can receive added help with math and language arts. My only problem with these classes are the options of wheel classes for those who are excelling-'Walking' and 'Games' are a waste of time, and I feel they need to add classes that also challenge the gifted students. The school has a no-bullying policy, and students are able to socialize and learn in a non-threatening, safe environment.

It has a poor punishment system and most, and I say most staff just don't care, it's just a paycheck.

Bothwell Middle School is fine for students who are independent, successful learners. If, however, your student has a learning disability then the school fails that student horribly. Special Education teachers are expected to handle a large number of students so they, of course, are not able to give the individual attention necessary. IEP's are not followed unless a parent keeps on top of what is going on. The school board cut classroom aide positions for 2006-07.

Bothwell Middle School is fine for children who learn material quickly. The district has cut way back on special education aides in the classrooms and the children who need the most help are sinking.

Bothwell Middle School has been going through changes. Class sizes have gotten bigger and the individual students can get lost! They do have some very good teachers though!
