Bruceton School is a really great school because they care about the kids. I believe it has some of the best teachers around. My daughter is in the third grade and from kindergarten on she has had amazing teachers.

Bruceton School is a great school for the kids of our community. The teachers are very caring and the administrators are top notch.

I was a student at Bruceton during my 7th and 8th grade years. I actually chose to go to school here after meeting the principle, Mr. Wotring. My teachers were amazing but I didn't get as much out of my education as I would have liked to. It seems that Bruceton was quite behind where it should have been. While the teachers were amazing, the students were very close minded and unaccepting of anything not their own. It was a small-town attitude where everyone knows everyone else and they don't like change. They were rude, cruel, and spiteful. Overall my time at Bruceton was a painful waste of time.

What a community school should be like. The teachers know all of the children, the principal greets the children getting off the bus, and everyone looks out for everyone.

I have put two generations of children through the Bruceton School. I also attended there myself. The best part of Bruceton School are the teachers and the principals. Though there have been one or two teachers that seemed 'difficult' the majority of the teachers are kind, considerate, and show they are more than capable at their jobs. My daughters breezed through school without barely a problem. My son though has had his good times and bad. His grades will be great then too many nights with friends over and video game challenges then.well no problem because the teachers keep the parents very informed on progress or lack there of and have always been wonderful with helping children get back on track. My Grandson attended Kindergarten there and his behavior was quite unruley.His teacher and the principals showed tremendous patience with him and helped him adjust.
