Although Bethlehem is a good district, their middle school is a huge disappointment. First of all, it is very cliquey, there are many bullies roaming free in the hallways here, a lot of teachers don't know how to correctly teach their students and provide them with the help they need, and the building is DISGUSTING. Gum covering the bottoms of almost every desk, the bathrooms flood often, and the middle school pool was awful. The school's budget cuts are also awful on the middle school. There is a lot of room for improvement here.
I honestly can say that i STRONGLY dislike this school.Most of the teachers are nice, but they say they care about students like me with organization "issues" yeah, its a lie. there is also a gargantuan issue with cliques and a wide spread of rumors. rumors legitamatly spread in 5 minutes throughout the whole school. Many students look down apon one another. it also upsets me seeing what kids like me do to eachother in this school. You see many kids crying. its the worst. i would also like to state budget cuts are horrible in this school district i know for a fact that many teachers are getting layed-off next year and i have a feeling that like last year and the year before that all feild trips will be cancled. music & art programs will most likely be cut too.they cant afford paper...enough said.
The Bethlehem Central Middle School has a nice environment with many students and amazing teachers. Sure, they often give us a lot of homework, but we learn a lot all the same.
This is an area with involved parents, highly educated families and voters that are willing to pay for quality education. Given all of that the school is really not performing in the way that it should. There is a greater importance placed on rules than there is on quality education. There is nothing inovative. Teachers view parents involvement as a burden. Bright children are too much work. While the grade school in the district was outstanding, the middle school is really a disapointment.
I go to bethlehem middle school as well, i think all of the teachers and staff are great. I love how no matter who you are what you do or how you act u feel like you are acpeted by everybody there.
I go to BCMS and I think the school is great! We have an excellent environment and a great group of teachers. There is nothing big I would change about the school. I think it is AWESOME!
It has many clubs for any kid and has a ver warm and good enviornment.
Bethlehem is awesome! The teachers care about us kids and don't just leave us hanging. Yeah, every once in a while we hit a bad egg, but no school can avoid that. Plus, the guidance councellors help us with that. Most of the teachers are top notch, and we always learn something in each class every day.
