WORST SCHOOL EVER! the only reason i gave this 2 stars is because it won't let me give it 1........this is my sons 3rd year at this school.. its gotten so bad we are moving. i have watched 10 friends pull their children out of this school this year alone. the new principal seems to be doing ok but the teachers are horrible and treat the kids like criminals. 7th grade is treated like the red-headed step child. they are last for everything. the teachers are bullys and don't teach anything. i'm surprised this school hasn't been turned into a charter school. the boys can't even dress out for p.e because one student broke a sink the rest of the boys are being punished. no restroom breaks and they can't have any water all day.. its like they are in prison.. i hate my son is treated like a criminal and he is a really good kid. i hate this school.. i would recommend going to Madison Middle if you are moving into this area.. its a lot better school.
no matter what you all think nbms is the the best middle schools! unlike palces like goodletsville middle they dont let us do watter ever we want. the school is sorta strict but it wants us to be the best that we can be.you have seen the everday life of a neelys bend student!
This is the worst school you could ever go to.The students have no respect for teachers and the teachers don't do anything to make the students better behave themselves.The students over here are too mean to others.The teachers don't even teach the students anything,they just give them work.My mom says I'm definitely moving schools next year because of this.
Our children have had a great experience at this school. I think that the new principal has a no nonsense approach and alot of parents have not been use to this at Neely's Bend Middle. When I have visited I can tell that the children are better behaved and my children enjoy going to school now.
* You can hardly get through to the school during school hours because the phone lines are always tied up. * I'm not sure what her position is at the school.. or if she truly has one.. but one of the 'office workers' uses bully tactics to get her way. * The Principal demonstrates poor judgment and leadership when it comes to the well being of her faculty. * Customer Service and communication is a must.
My child has had a terrible experience at this school. The teachers can't even handle there students. An thats a shame!! The principal threaten my kid and others by saying that she was going to make there year miserable. An thats an outrage!! The kids get wrote up for the stupidest things like laughing or not having supplies. They are even saying there going to exspell kids for body piercings. An so much more its rediculous!!!!!!
Unfortunately my child has not had a good experience here. I do not think that the adminstration here takes the parent seriously. My child is a well behavied student and has pretty decent grades and I have been told this by his teachers. I have addressed my issues with the school and I never get a response. I even left a message one time about another student vandalizing something of my sons and it took almost two weeks to get a call back. There many things that have happened here but there is just too much to write
All three of my children attended this school. I feel my children really received a good education. the teachers really comunicated well with me on all area's of my childrens challenges.
I think we should have a choir group in school. the staff is great. not much field trips thou. great quality of academic programs. we also have extra curricular activities. and parent involedment is great.
This is my child's first year at NBMS and we moved here from another state. My child has been subjected to reverse discrimination by students and TEACHERS! What a shame, NBMS could be a nice school. The students seem to have alot of behavior and discipline issues. I'm very disappointed with this school and especially the teachers.
