I don't know what to think of this school. One of the easiest schools I've seen. With my son in standard classes, he rarely has homework. Any signed documents needed are never returned, and no contact is ever made to inquire. Teachers seem to pad grades an any chance they get..when they even have to, being the difficulty bar is way low. I wouldn't suggest this school. I would like a school that challenges students for their future academic careers, but instead this one does the opposite, and then shows its ok to fail, you'll still pass. That you don't have to put effort in, and still pass. These are not lessons i'm trying to teach my son. He will not be returning to this school.
In 5 years with children at Bleyl, I've encountered some flaws and was treated with respect when reporting them to the Assistant Principal. I have the upmost respect for the leadership of AP Mr. Mark Moynihan. I have never spoke with the principal but her secretary is unprofessional. Susan Hechler the counselor talked very disrespectful to me at a school function so I can't imagine how she treats students. Teachers are a mix here; definetely more great than not and I appreciate the great ones. The bad teachers need to free themselves from the job that aren't good at and probably hate, and find a more suitable career path. A couple have moved on so I guess I encountered them at the end of their rope. A couple others need to go and trust me I would love to post their names. I despise when teachers have to be chased down to communicate with them and I despise the inconsistency of information from these same teachers. No wonder kids have trouble when teachers get parents involved then are inconsistent and unavailable. All that being said, Bleyl is above average and I am thankful for the great Mr. Mark Moynihan. The ladies at the front desk are consistently been courteous and efficient
My daughter has attended Bleyl since 6th grade and currently is an 8th grader. I am very pleased with the teachers and staff. No school is perfect, but I can't say one bad thing about this school. My daugher has excellent teachers that have pushed her and kept me informed when I needed to be. Overall good school.
My son has been at Bleyl for three years and I worked in the lunch room for two, I have yet to find a woodshop, are you sure you are talking about Bleyl. As far as I know only the high schools in Cy-Fair school district have wood shops.
I do not want to sound like a broken record(for those of us that can remember records) but I have found the staff to be less mature and more sarcastic than the students they are there to role model.The children are treated like criminals at a detention center.I have found that the majority of the "teachers" are so burnt out that they should have long ago retired. I realize that it must be an extremely difficult job trying to instruct kids at this challenging stage of there lives ...but for crying out loud.THIS IS THE FIELD YOU CHOSE! I will say that if Blyle Middle school l is any indication of the dirrection society is headed in ,much prayer is needed. My children will NOT be attending next year.
I go to this school, and it's not HALF as bad as it sounds...there is the occasional fight every now and then, but other than that...everything is perfect here! I dn't think we need to change a thing!
4 years total at Bleyl with son and daughter. Very disappointed. Weak principals and school leadership. Sarcastic and poor teaching and coaching staff. Children came to this school from an excellent elementary school (Yeager). Encountered episodes of bullying that were poorly handled for my daughter in 6th grade. Several day's when the bus had to return to school for misbehaving students. Decided to pull our daughter out of Bleyl because of poor academic programs. We felt there was too much focus on crowd control and less focus on creating good a good learning atmosphere.
Second year at the school. Last year I was disappointed in sarcastic and disrespectful teachers. But none of that this year. Greatest education staff and a safe school. My child has no bullying issues or stressful issues. Even the bus rides are fun and incident free. This makes Bleyl an amazing learning atmosphere.
I think the school is ok im new to this school but i think its awsome its alittle hard but a great school.
Have had a good year despite renovation. In fact, the atmosphere is so friendly that renovation has not posed a major problem to the campus. The principal is always visible and accessible and AP's and counselors care about kids and keeping the school safe. Good programs, extracurriculars, and strong academics.
Lots of good programs. AP's and counselors really care about kids. Very good teachers. Have had a good year including renovation.
Some of the Ap's are not very kind. Great school and very nice teachers. Lots of things happening this year
this aschool has alot of disipline problems but overall the teachers are great and the whole image is i guess average.....
I'm sure there a some good people in mix but I am appalled at the incidents of staff and teachers speaking sarcastic to parents and students. While I prefer a strict school by far, the tone used here is disrespectful. They want their rules to be esteemed while lacking any common courtesy for their parents and students.
Bleyl was a very good school in the past, but it has slipped this year. Maybe it is the construction, maybe it is the leadership, but it is not the school it once was. There are great areas - band, choir, and some very good teachers, but the school is just average overall. Hopefully once construction is finished there will be a new attitude at the school.
Bleyl is one of the older schools in CFISD but is getting a total renovation beginning this year. Despite its age, it has lots of school spirit, tradition, strong teachers, and great kids. Parents are highly visible and are very active volunteering all over the school. There is very little teacher turnover and that is due to the principal' who has worked hard to build a cohesive staff dedicated to student success. My child has had some of the best teachers he's ever had ever. The band is one of the best in the state, earning top honors this summer in area and regional contests. Great school = good kids + great teachers + involved parents! Thanks, Bleyl!
I like this school because the teachers are very good the school fine in fact its getting a renovation this summer! Yea there might be disciplinary problems but not the whole school just some of the kids.
Have heard this was a great school, but I have not found this to be so. Lots of discipline problems. Not very good programs with kids with learning/behavior problems. I don't want my kids going to this school anymore. We are moving to the Klein or Woodlands areas.
Would give overall rating closer to 4 except principal is leaving at end of year. Experience for 2 children there was mostly positive. Building is one of the oldest in district. Will be upgraded in next few years.
