Middle school it a prime time to influence and encourage children to learn and grow into responsible adults. I believe the Bourbon Middle School teachers are doing that.


Posted December 19, 2008

Well this school has reallt went into more proublems then I could emagin.They don't seem to want to help the Disabled children in any way and if I child gets out of controle becouse they can't take there own classes that they want to try to do better they call the hotline on them,Now come on don't tell me its wrong for a child to suceed to a better education and wants to try to learn.Nobody puts a student in a classroom to sleep and don't have to do anythng.There should be no schools to let children sleep all day and not do there work.Or put a child in a classroom all alone with no teacher around to help them if that student needs them.Iam sorry Bourbon but you'r school rating is going down....
