I am very pleased with the academics and teachers at this school. The teachers provide ample support and encourage student success. The orchestra program program is excellent and the performances truly demonstrate how organized and committed the music teachers are. The one complaint I have with BMSS is the way the athletics program is run. For such a large number more of students interested in athletics, the program offers very little in regards to opportunity and development. If you have a child at this school who has not had the opportunity to participate in team sports consistently through grade school or doesn't participate in costly club sports, they will not likely be able to make any teams or even participate in sports after their first year of attendance. After that year, students are taken out of the athletics training PE program and placed in general PE. From that point there is no opportunity for them to t win so that they can compete with the other students on the athletic track. As an educator of 15+ years at the middle school level, I find this completely unacceptable. Sad to place kids in this situation when many haven't even finished growing.
Fantastic. New computers, great athletic program. PTO goes out of their way to not only help the teaching staff but the students and administration staff as well. Teachers go out of their way to help the students. Teachers provide free before/after school tutoring. Would recommend for everyone.
This school does not take bullying seriously. No punishment for bullys as long as they say they are sorry. Then they can continue being bullys. Teachers seem to be ok according to my child but the admin staff could use some training if they are naive enough to believe that the kids are not smart enough to tell them what they want to here just to avoid punishment. Agreed that this school is cliquish and full of snotty wannabes from a disney high school movie. This atmosphere makes learning very difficult.
Of all the problems this school has, the administration has got to be the absolute worst of them. They're rude, have absolutely no consideration for the kids and treat all the kids like they're convicts. The teachers are no better. Screaming at the top of their lungs and embarrassing kids in front of their peers over the stupidest and most pointless of things! Something has got to be done about it!
I went to this school for one year from 2008-2009. I'm not going to lie, I liked going there and they do an incredible job on keeping the campus in good shape. However, there's still a TON of room for improvement here. This school is EXTREMELY cliquish and full of gossipy kids. The administraion does a terrible job looking into incidents and just suspends anyone involved without even getting the full story first. And the teacher think that just because it was a blue ribbon school before, the student's lives are perfect and carefree so they treat kids like 1st graders which just makes the kids frustrated and angry. This school has fights, drugs etc... just like every other school. This place is fun but not a good place to send a kid if you want them to get a great education and grow more mature as a person. Wouldn't recommend.
I go to Beorne Middle School North and I love it, all the teachersand students are kind and thoughtful. The princable is amazing and makes great choises. The teachers are the best in the World and do an extrodanary job at teaching, they are defanatluy the best in the world.
The school has great teachers, very helpful to the students & parents. The principal Dr. Hunt is also very caring towards students & faculty.. We also have awesome janitors. We are a Blue Ribbon School.
