This was just shy of a four star. One teacher made a joke about applying corporal punishment to all students even to those who's parental signatories disallowed it. And the other actually hits students on the head with a magazine roll, which is not even allowed under the CP protocol. This is out of line behaviour.
We moved to Murfreesboro from Lorton, Va. I have been very impressed with the quality of instruction from the teachers at BMS. They are demanding and set high expectations for the students. THEY WILL NOT "BABY" YOUR CHILD. If your child is willing to put forth the effort, then they will have a wonderful academic experience.
In my opinion, BMS needs serious help with communication. Parents expect a response to phone calls, emails and letters. On top of that, new children to the area are not accepted in activities. They are turned away and expected to be up to par with only there program or stay away! They do not hold tryouts for band by the way. If you don't already know how to play instrument, they won't teach you and they won't let you in the band.
