My daughter has been in school there since Head Start. Overall this is a great school, with good teachers and students. If I have ever had a problem, the staff has always been there to help. The New Construction is almost complete, and everyone is so excited to finally have a school us parents can be proud of! Thanks to everyone who has made it happen!

Bulls Gap Middle School has the BEST Assistant Principal in Hawkins County-Maureen Morelock. I have taught with her at Church Hill Middle School and she is the most dedicated educator I have ever taught with in 13 years.

We are finally getting the new construction that we've been waiting on for so long! The school is getting new additions and renovations to correct the poor conditions and old sewer systems.Im hoping for a school that the children deserve . For the most part the teachers are very good at what they do with a few exceptions . I hope that they get renovated as well. I'll be glad when it's all done and we can not have guilt over sending our kids into a school that stinks and has a heating system that has been known to not light on occasion. Yes it's an old pilot light that has to be lit and has had to be repaired on several occasions.I hope we will finally have a school to be proud of. The new principal is trying very hard and seems to have genuine concern for the kids.

I think that the school has come a long way in the past couple of years. The teachers are wonderful and the principal is super nice. I just think that if more parents get involved in school activities they would see a big difference in how things go. I agree about the lunches my kids come home starving because they say they don't get enough or that they didn't eat because they didn't like what the school was having that day. If you have any concerns about the school i suggest that you go and meet with the principal and discuss your concerns with her. I'm sure that she will do anything she can to take care of your problems. I give the school a 5 star rating. Please voice your opinion. They don't know how your feel unless you speak your mind. This is a great school. Check it out.

The building itself is in great need of repair, however new construction is underway. The teachers at this school have been wonderful to my child and I feel that I have been included in his education, which is important to me as a parent. If I have questions there is always someone at the school to answer them, and last years lock down was handled smoothly, this leads me to believe that my child is safe when he is at school. I am very happy to have my child at this school and would recommend it to any parent.

I went to Bulls Gap for three years and I honestly think it is a great place for students to learn.I was really scared when I first got there,but the teachers there were really nice and helped me get to all my classes.The only bad thing is that the school is in poor condition,bit this year they are remodeling it.So I think that if you are looking for a school with wonderful people then you will like Bulls Gap.

My children had to leave another county school due to zoning restrictions and I was fearful of what Bulls Gap would be like. However, I found that I was more pleased with this school than the first. All of the teachers I have encountered seem to love these children. The new principal this year is really down to earth. (no goody-goody people here). The building is going to be renovated and added to beginning in 2008. As far as education, I can't say that I have figured that all out yet but I have noticed that hand-writing is stressed at this school and the other school never mentioned it. My kindergartner is using lined paper to practice and in class. I never could understand why it was never used in the other school. Although, the accelerated reading program does not seem to be as important at Bulls Gap.

It should be noted that the principal referred to in prior comments has been replaced by a competent, caring and professional one. The other problems, however, remain: unsanitary bathrooms, lunch menus with unappealing, meats and vegetables, plus a curious shortage of popular items, such as salads and baked potatoes. Someone mentioned some type of 'honors' program, but all I have seen is a serious lack of encouragement for gifted students. But in all due respect, there are some caring, dedicated and memorable teachers there who genuinely care about the children, and they shouldn't be overlooked.

This school has very unclean bathrooms. Dont get me wrong they have wonderful teachers but the county just doesnt care what our children have to put up with , the dirty school. So here I'm writing this. Hope it helps because this is the last year my children will be there.

I have to agree this school is seriously deteriorating. There are many teachers there who really care about the children and their education. Unfortunately,there are several teachers who need to be removed and would benefit from some anger management classes. It is a teachers responsibility to set a good example for their students. Parents count on the administration to monitor the satisfaction rating and the overall ability of the teachers to properly teach these students. Also the food selection for the students is very lacking. My child regularly comes home hungry due to the dislike of the cafeteria food. I sincerely hope the hawkins co. School board will find it in their hearts to investigate the running of this school and implement some serious changes. I write this with a heavy heart. A concerned parent.

Due to no fault of the teaching staff this school is in great disrepair. Hawkins County should be ashamed of the horrendous condition of this building! A good quality education is available to students that are able and willing to work. Advanced classes are available for honor students, which prepares them nicely for high school. As with many schools, there is a small percent of teachers, and administrators that are substandard, and need to retire.

This is the worst school for children of any age, I have 2 children in this school. the school is a danger in its self to the children as it is falling apart, litterally. please consider sending your children to another school. or teach them at home. they will be safer and more supervised.
