I wish we had had the chance of meeting last years principle. This school is now run by a bunch of women on power trips who don't care about education, only their own personal gain. This school district is a joke and should have been joined with the Comal ISD a long time ago. Only when this happens will New Braunfels no longer be a divided town.
There will be a new principal at this school next school year. The past principal went on to the high school in town. He did a pretty good job of cleaning up this school. He will be missed by the parents. The new principal will be a woman. I hope she will do a good job as I have a child going to school there next year.
After moving from So.Cal., we're not overly impressed by this school, the teachers or the district. The principal is a plus and there are a few great teachers/coaches. Some teachers are long overdue for retirement.
After moving from an exemplary middle school in San Antonio I have not been pleased with this particular school. The only positive thing I have found is the Principle.
I will say the principal is the only thing at this school that is good. He is wonderful and reallly trys to help you out. The district/school it self is not that way. From overall I wish we lived in a different district.
New Braunfels Middle school is a great school!! The staff and especially the teachers are very involved in the students academics. They are always willing to do their best for the students success. I am very pleased with the school and all they do.
Personally New Braunfels Middle School is awesome! I think they have a perfect balence of education and freedom for the students at nbms.
I am actually a student at NBMS. I love in NBMS in a way all students feel loyalty to their school, but I think there could certainly be improvements made. There are several matinence issues, including the lack of air conditioning in the girls gym. Let me tell you, it gets hot in there at the beginning and end of each school year. I am definitely not bad-mouthing the custodial staff here though. There are some of the nicest, most caring, and kind custodians I've ever had during my public school education. The teachers on the other hand differ in quality. I've had some of the best teachers in my entire like here, but also some of my worst. Discipline is either really harsh around here or there is none at all. It mostly depends on who you are and what you offense was. Overall, NBMS is a decent school.
I have to make a more recent comment than the parent who posted in 2005. Any discipline problems that may have existed are gone. This is a wonderful school, where children are encouraged in both the academic and sports fields. I have absolutely no qualms in recommending this school over any other middle school here in NB. It's neither crowded, nor unorganized. Perhaps it's come a long way in the 3 or 4 years since the last reviews. I have two 7th graders, in different classes, so I do believe we have a good overall experience from which to comment.
Lack of discipline at this school has put all of its students at risk. If your kids are not in this school do not put them in. If they are in take them out. Better leadership can turn New Braunfels schools around. Until then, be wary. They have lots of extracurricular activities. As in most schools there are some really great teachers and there are some very poor teachers.
Overall the school is crowded and unorganized. The only savior is the wonderful teachers who still manage to provide a quality education.
