I go to Bunn Middle, and it's a terrible school, in mine, and other students opinion as well. The teachers tell you that you're never going to get anywhere in life, and you're going to fail, and they make you feel terrible about yourself. These last years there have been the worst of my life. My teachers lose my work, and give me punishments for NOTHING. The staff doesn't do anything about bullying either. I'm severely bullied, and they haven't done anything about it. They judge you as well, I'm always judged by the staff there. I was diagnosed with depression a while back, and it was when I came to this school. I've never felt this terrible about myself, and it's because of the staff.
I feel lucky that my child attends a school with great teachers and principals that are caring and responsive to parent concerns. If you compare this school to others like it (demographics, test scores, etc.), you'll find that we're very lucky to have the fine folks at Bunn Middle School educating our youth.
My son attends this school and last year I was called in for 4 meetings in withing 2 months. We had a 1 hour conference with all his teacher and came up with a game plan and it never happened. There was no follow through by the teachers or the principal. I think it's great that they have the board on the internet so I can check and see what he has for homework as he tends to lie about that! At my friends sons school the teachers are required to sign the agenda book for every subject and do it everyday. The parents then have to sign it every night, this way we know the work is getting done. But there are loop holes where that is concerned.
No communication between the school and parents! Haven't figured out way they will not? the school is clean..test scores are ok teachers could use a little work on communication with parents also
this school is very strict. i have been attending BMS since my 6th grade year and i am now in the 8th grade. i used to think that the school was to strict but now i see that with some of the students there,that the teachers must be strict. but as long as you are not being rude and direspectful your school year will go by nice and smoothly. the teachers are only there to help. although sometimes it may not seem that way
It is my opinion that this school does not carry the same 'excellence' as it did under the guidance of Mr. Hawks. I feel the high standards formerly expected have been cut to second rate and it is our students who will suffer in the long run.
Bunn Middle School has a very safe environment. My children have always been safe there. The new principal has done an excellent job in this regard. He is firm, allows NO bullying, allows NO child to be 'picked on'. He is very fair. The availability of music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities is high and the choices are many for students. The quality of all acedemic programs is high and teachers really try hard to prepare the students for high school. The transition from elementary to middle school is very hard and the teachers try hard to emphasize the needed changes that are necessary to start your student thinking like a middle school student. Our overall rating of the school is exceptional and violence is not a word I associate with this school at this time. Also, most teachers encourage student, teacher, parent conferences.
Bunn Middle School has experience tremedous improvements under the leadership of a new principal. My child's test scores and overall school experience improved during the 2004-2005 school year.
This school needs a lot of overall improvements. the principals and staff lack the tools to educate and they do not involve parents. The adults in this school do not provide adequate attention to safety matters.
