Middle school is a difficult time as a parent - no matter where you decide to send your student. This school specializes in recognizing the developmental needs of 11-14 year olds and providing experiences for students to succeed (and yes, sometimes fall short). I agree with a previous reviewer about the shabby facilities, but am confident that the school is putting as much money as possible towards lasting lifetime experiences for my student: trips, guest speakers, computer systems, unique PE experiences and amazing faculty. This school is definitely NOT for everyone, but if it is a good fit for you and your child, then expect to graduate with a well-rounded, thoughtful young adult who challenges the world around them and has stories to take with them through life.
I am a 7th grade student at Billings and I absolutely love it! It's confusing at times and the homework is sometimes too hard, but it's still a great school. The teachers are nice and the classwork is great. The only thing bad is the fact that there are 4 different buildings separated by streets that a teacher must cross with you. On the plus side, it's great exercise! It's also really ironic that you misspelled 'expectation'...
My daughter had a great experience at Billings. She needed a smaller setting due to lots of illness during elementary school. By the time she finished eighth grade, she had grown so much and was really able to advocate for herself. Best of all, was that this school keeps kids moving. Lots of outdoor experiences. It was holistic in its approach and was very well-rounded. The staff was very helpful, though occasionally one or two times. Go in and see that person and tell them what you're not satisfied about. They will listen.
I loved billings. The outdoors program was great, and the teachers have time for each kid. I really loved the drama program too.
I excelled in the small class sizes and indivual attention I recived from the teachers. Billings created a diverse learning enviroment and great hands on learning techniques. The emotinal and physical soupport Billings provided me with was fantastic! Billings taught me that learning is fun and now i love to learn!
