As a parent that has had children be a part of Borger Middle School for 8 years, I feel compelled to write to address some of the statements that have been posted on the web. Yes, we do have an exemplary middle school in Borger, Texas. We have administrators, faculty members, and support staff that are deeply concerned about the future of your children, the future of our community and country. Folks, let s face it, if you want to place blame, look in the mirror. The school has them 8 hours a day; you have them from birth and a lifetime. Raising a child starts at birth, not at middle school age. You are the most powerful and influential person in your child s life; it has been my experience in life that most people want to complain, drawing attention to the shortcomings in society, but few ever help find solutions.

Attending Borger Middle School has made a positive difference in the lives of my three children. The principal and teachers are the kind of role models every parent would wish, and this is one school that is proud of its American history and heritage.

I am proud of the education my children have recieved and are currently receiving at Borger Middle School. My husband and I feel fortunate to have such dedicated professional christian educators that strive for excellence in our three children. The principal of grades 6 through 8 is an exemplary leader and applies christian morals to the decisions that are made concerning my children.

I currently have a 7th grader enrolled at BMS. Plus, my 10th grade son also attended this school so I have had the opportunity to experience BMS for numerous years. It has always been a very positive experience for both of my children. We did have a few issues to arise but all I had to do was call the principal and he took care of it immediately. The teachers and the staff have the kids best interest at heart. I would recommend this school to anyone coming into our community. Strong academics and very positive extracurricular activities. Great environment for students to reach their potential!

Borger Middle School is a great school for kids. The staff is excellent and the Principal is a man of integrity. We are lucky to have a school of this quality for our kids to learn at.

I am a parent of an 8th and 6th grader. I am very pleased with BMS. I feel the staff sets off a very positive attitude towards the students and parents. They are always at every sporting event encouraging the players and supporting the teams. The time and dedication they put forth to benefit their students is remarkable. Our children go to a very safe school and have every opportunity to excel in whatever endevour they choose. The teaching staff (including coaches) actually cares about each student and wants them to be successful. They enocourage student success and are willing to go the extra mile in order to help them succeed. I feel very good about sending my children to BMS.

This school isn't perfect but the teachers care about the students. They want them to do their best and have good TAKS scores. They accommodate them as best they can and do their best to keep parents in the loop. Students are given every opportunity to get extra help. Over all, this is a good school with a caring staff who are well supported by the administration.

I am a parent of a 6th grade student. I think the teachers and the principals do a great job overall. The school has added several electives over the last couple of years. Our school does not have bags of money so I feel they are doing the best they can with the resources.

My daughter loves attending Borger Middle School. I am happy with the Band program but I am not happy about how her math teacher treats her and BMS honor classes are a joke compared to her last school. The altheltic system is a joke for basketball and track.

I have a child that goes to this school did have 3 but took 2 of them out..I have to agree with one parent that posted ... this school needs alot of attention and alot of reviews...the principal needs to be removed from the school and have a better one there..some of the teachers need to be let go cause they dont care about the kids learning i guess they dont have anything better to do

I live in a larger city but my son attends school here. I believe that some of the teaching staff and the principal need to be evaluated as I strongly disagree in their ethics and the way that they treat and speak to the students. I have had several discussions with some members of the staff and It's my belief that several issues and concerns that parents have with the staff are just ignored or addressed just to the point of appeasing the parent at the time.

So far it seems like an alright school. We just moved here, there are a few things I don't agree with, but we will see in the next few weeks. there is not enough choices for the kids. only athletics and choir(BAD) what happened to the journalism class.

Borger Middle is, over all, a decent school for kids to learn in. Most of the teachers are fair and keep the students' best interests in mind. The school has pretty good opportunities for music, sports and art classes for the students, though some have been turned away from classes that were too full to accomodate them. The only real problem this school has is the vice principal. I have overheard him yelling at a student in his office. The man's conduct is unprofessional at best.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
