Witnessed first hand, also I have a child that is afraid to go to school due to being bullied via getting spit on everyday and even in front of staff and nothing gets done.

This school is terrible. The staff have zero control over the children that they teach. Bullies are everywhere they allow children to smoke on the bus. I have seen zero respect shown from the children towards the staff. The teachers will not give the time of day to discuss anything with the parents. Please someone step in and take control of this school. As a very concerned parent do not send your kids to this school.

I LOVE this school!! my daughter graduated from here in June 2015 and she was so sad to be leaving! Just for the record, I did not donate anything nor was I involved in any way due to other obligations, but the staff were all extremely kind and wonderful to my daughter. The arts program there is incredible, and in my opinion made her years there over the top superb, but so is the academic teaming system they have developed. My daughters teachers all motivated her to succeed, and really engaged her in the material. I was blown away by how awesome her time there was, and it truly exceeded my expectations for how amazing a middle school experience can be. Ms Snelling, Ms Engstrom, Ms Sewell, and Mr Herald are just four of the rock star teachers she had and she loves them all. She will look back fondly on her time at Billinghurst for the rest of her life!

The school claims to have a a zero tolerance for bullies, but that's a joke. Of your family has money, they won't do anything to upset the "income stream". They reinforce the socioeconomic gap by favoring students with parents that donate. There are also several teachers who are bullies as well. The level of disrespect that they speak to the kids is staggering. One child was even told to "sit down and shut up and stop acting so smart" when the student pointed out the timeline they had written on the board was 10 years off. Another teacher thought it was funny to tease a kid all year about people taking the students stuff but did nothing to stop it. There are fights almost every day now and the atmosphere has become one of duck and cover versus learning. This school has allowed the elitest mentality to run rampant.

My son goes to school here adn it seems great the teachers and staff. My son has learning issues and grade issues and they do help. I was a little concern the first day a older child kept runniong into him and never said "Excuse me", I told my son maybe it was an accident. Staff is great though for sure.

I go here currently and I love it! The teachers are fun, and not biased towards certain students. They teach us fun stuff and I LOVE our team cheer assemblies! They don't tolerate bullying or harrasment, and their main goal is to help us learn in a safe and fun enviroment. Go neon thunder!

I went here for both years. The teachers and principal are great. The classes are fun, and you learn tons. Everyone is supportive, bullying hardly ever goes on, and is not tolerated at all. Theres an advanced placement team if you do well in elementary. Only the language department and the dances could be improved. I loved it there. (Dynasty rocks!)
