Hi, my name is Ben and I no longer attend this school because I was bullied. So thank you to the person that posted that bullying is a problem at this school. I was called names and pushed numerous times. I started having anxiety and became depressed. I reported the bullying and I was moved from my classes while the bullying remained. We were told this is school policy. This only made the problems worse and I started to want out of life, any way possible. I'm glad I have good parents because they homeschooling me for awhile then moved so I could go to a different school. I am so happy now at my new school and by the way a lot of kids there were bullied it was not just me.

BFMS in franklin county va. Is a amazing place. In sixth grade you are welcomed generously and are helped constantly. They have even thought about splitting girls and boys up. For the better, less distraction. In seventh you explore every aspect of learning through constant activity. In eighth you go to CATCE part time for carrer exploration it is high tech and innovative. You can take classes on almost every field of jobs. Half time you got to regular eighth which is amaizing. After CATCE come the high school which points you in the right directions. Sure some teachers are tough but even more are wonderful. I have no complaints whatsoever. Its a exciting school.
