Posted August 8, 2014

did not at all like this school. My daughter was considently bullied. The teachers in the hall did NOTHING to curb, the disrespect, that alot of students did. Everytime I walked into that school, students were constitently, swearing at the staff, It was envirnoment, I did not want my child in. And they locked the students up in the school, like animal, which I have to say, some of them were, the way they acted. Awful school

Battle Creek Middle School is wonderful. My daughter is in 8th grade there and she loves it. The teachers are very helpful and the students are nice. She is a school leader (W.E.B. leader); and she loves it. There isn't much drama with the students and everyone is welcomed. The classes are wonderful & the electives are perfect; art, music and photography.

Battle Creek Middle seems like a wonderful school. My nieces' teachers, counselor, and other faculty members are very caring. They do an amazing job with teaching the students and helping with their emotional problems that most teenagers go through during their puberty.
