BHMS in Blue Springs, MO continues to impress me. I am a clinical psychologist and very involved with my children's education. I have two children in this middle school. The staff are well educated and genuinely care for the educational growth needs of my children. My husband and I , along with our two students at BHMS, strongly recommend this school. If you are considering moving to the KC area, take a look at Blue Springs School District. The staff at all levels are truly amazing....Your children will benefit for the long run!

Three children have completed a total of nine years at BHMS and have gone on to be top students at the high school and college levels. BH played a large part in their academic success.

I graduated from Brittany Hill in 2008, and I enjoyed this school so very much! The teachers I had here were excellent, the students are amazing kids, and I have so many great memories here! There are a ton of extra curricular activities, everyone is very friendly, and the academics are great! Blue Springs is such a great place to grow up, and Brittany Hill is a great place to help you :)

I'm currently an 8th grader at Brittany Hill Middle School and honestly, next year when I'm at a new school, I'm going to really miss 'Brittany'. BHMS has had its ups and downs but overall, everything is great. It's one of the oldest schools in Blue Springs but yet it looks spectacular. We're always getting compliments and such on our custodial service and of course our education skills. Over the years, Brittany has really taught me ALOT and I adapted to its homey feeling. Also, the #1 thing I loved about Brittany is that the teachers here are AMAZING! After the first couple weeks of school, there's really no way to look at your teacher as just a person who comes in and teaches you. You look at them as an actual, social person who is just like someone you know or a guardian or something. Overall, I love it :)

I Love brittany hill! The teachers are great, and I feel very safe. The only thing I wish I could change is the noise level! I am getting major headaches, in class, at lunch, in the halls, and espescily on the bus.

Brittany hill is cool I like the teacher because they will joke around but when it comes to the end it's about getting your work done.

great school for our girl's to attend one graduating this year and another coming in 3 years only thing i hope o see change is teacher involvement with the students who are shy and dont ask for help that fall behind in calls work. just because they attend every day doesnt mean they are catching all theinformation or doing all their home work i think teachers should put more pressure to get assignment turned in in a timelyfashion. not leave it up to the student or the parents to do. the parents are both working some two jobs and dont have the time to dedicate to after school homework and projects. teachers need to step up and asure the kids are not just sliding by. it seeemed the popular students got most of the attention i wish it were the other way around the shy/hard to ask for help students would get.

Brittany Hills is an excellent middle school. It is by far one of the cleanest, organized, and safest schools, I've ever had my daughter in. The Blue Springs School district is a fine one, starting from elementary schools and up.
