The community of bullock creek is outstanding but as far as the school goes it's nothing special. The teachers are more cliquey then the students and believe that they are top notch. The technology in the school is seriously lacking and they do not challenge the students in any way whatsoever. No advanced courses does not allow those students to challenge themselves. Everything is spoon fed to these students and its I wonder many of them struggle outside of high school. These teachers should be preparing these kids for the real world not handing them the information and doing it for them. I would never send my children to this district.
I love it there. It's a small, familial community; you know pretty much everyone and everyone at least knows who you are. There are, as with any school, cliques, but it's not bad. You come and go withing different groups of friends. Education could be better, but for how small we are, we have a great education. Honors programs, good teachers, online classes, Dual and Shared Time Enrollment, etc. Our sports is just as good, with good coaches and good programs. Overall, it's a great community school. Rarely any fights, and even those aren't serious fights. Heck, more cat fights between girls happen than any other kind of fight, and even that is rare. It's just a great school.
My kids did very well at Bullock Creek High. The lack of competition and snobby cliques, like surrounding schools, allowed them to be kids and enjoy their education. The kids can go as far as they want with a whole range of extracurricular activities, but not feel like outsiders if they don't. The principal is like a father to the kids - and has personally been fantastic for my son - not lenient and not overbearing. The staff are all great, too. I would recommend it to anyone!
My children have went to this school since Kindergarten and are now in Highschool. The community is warm and caring and very involved in their schools. The teachers are wonderful and I spend a lot of time with kids from there, outside of school time and rarely hear a complaint. The Band directors and programs are top notch and are always being asked to perform at area functions. We're proud to be Bullock Creekers'. It's always a good day to be a Lancer!!!
I went to Midland Public Schools and had intended for my children to go there, but as it turns out we found the house we liked in the Bullock Creek District. I could not be happier. My children are getting a good education and more one on one with teachers than I ever did. I feel the teachers are genuinely concerned with their welfare. BC is a smaller district than MPS and that plays to their benefit. The teachers are allowed to be flexible in planning their classes. We see some cutting edge teaching principles applied. BC is also progressive in technology, with a district wide network, computer labs in each school and computers in each classroom. My children are also part of the band program. The bands are highly regarded locally and consistantly score high marks in competitions, and they really get the audience rocking! I highly recommend Bullock Creek Schools.
This school is very closed in and values little. The parents don't meet each other very often, and are usually only interested in social climbing. The school also offers a small range of courses. Few teachers are personable.
I am a parent of a sophmore at Bullock Creek High School and I remember when my daughter was young that I always said that there was no way she was ever going to go to any other school other then Midland High where I graduated from. But as the years went on I am so glad that my daughter now attends this school and has since the 2nd grade. I would not change this for nothing and Im glad that she does, she gets more one on one learning and teaching help then she would at any other school. The school is smaller and for the most part a good bunch of kids. She loves it there and I look forward to her graduation from here and I couldn't be more proud of my Bullock Creeker.
