Bellevue Middle School

Ms. Martin (a 5th grade social studies/ela teacher) was an excellent teacher. Probably one of the best teachers in the school. She could be both loving and stern (when needed). But she genuinely cared for each student's well being. She would always take the time to identify the problem each student had and address those issues, not expect children with difficulties in a subject to learn on the same pace, at the same level, with the same teaching methods. She would meet the student where they were...for example if the student had a hard time testing for whatever reason but it was apparent that they knew the information, she would test them in utilizing different approaches, whether it would be verbal, allowing them to take the test alone, etc. GREAT TEACHER! If all teachers used this practice it would make for a better school/world.

Not all students. As stated in my overall review, the administration et all seem to cater to a specific demographic leaving other students to feel as if they are not cared for.

With the contents in my overall review, I would think it difficult that students would be able to exhibit these attributes with aspects of inequality being an issue. How do the children feel cared for under these conditions and therefore how would they develop the attributes of compassion, caring and empathy. Thankful that we as parents teach (and demand) these values in our children.

As parents we develop these values in our children. I will agree that at least the school is in a great neighborhood and there are some teachers that help to foster these attributes in the students.

While this school is in one of the best areas in Nashville (we love this community), it bothers me that the administration, teachers, etc. don't seem to care about the entire student body. This is a diverse school demographically, however, it seems to cater to a specific demographic and provides resources and outlets to that demographic, utilizing unfair and unequal practices towards others. I expected more. They claim to be community minded , but who represents the "U" in unity, the derivative of the word? It's disheartening to parents, worked hard to receive their higher education and nurture their families in supposedly loving and caring communities and who instill in their children the importance of a great secondary education and higher education, that some children are simply lumped into categories and labels, without thought. Also the teachers seem more caring of those who naturally do well in school but those who struggle they seem to not have effective teaching skills in handling more tactile and/or verbal learners. Every child is different and every teacher should approach each child differently to ensure they have a wonderful secondary educational experience. And as for the new principal as of 2015...I don't even want to go there...horrible!

Since the beginning of this school year-we have watched the teachers and coaches and counselors reignite their determination to get our school headed BACK in the right direction!!!!

This is not the school it's the system Because district level policy asks admin to do everything they can to keep all kid(s) in school- because the educators are now expected to be the parents, therapists, coaches, security, big brothers and sisters. Leaves very little time to teach
