All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Where to start first off our schools lack training. If your child is special needs prepare for a fight getting them to provide services your child needs. The impression they give is children should be seen and not heard. I am currently looking for a new home in a different county so my child doesn't have to endure this anymore. Before this school year i was only planning on my child going to the fifth grade here. I would never enroll my children in the middle or high school. I actually have lived in this county my whole life, my opinions come from personal experience from being both the student and being a parent of a student. I also agree with an earlier post about the seventh grade. I struggled through the entire seventh grade, my mother had me tested, my IQ was 145 no learning disability of any type

I think there should be more close interaction with the student from the teacher at BUMS. This can easily be done by focusing more attention on one different student a day, because there is approx. 180 days in a school yr which is plenty to pay specific attention to each student in a class approx. 20 times during a yr. There should also be a more detailed outline handed out to the student and the parents of what is expected in behavior and especially what is expected to be learned in the yr. So, academic needs improvement, activities should be encouraged to more students and there should be more parent get together activities like 'pot lucks' to influence parent involvement. I was a student at this school 19 years ago and needed more attention in the 7th. My sister is a 7th grader now and is failing. Coincidence?

Both of my children went to bums. I have been reasonably, well pleased about the education they received there. As in any situation, improvement is always possible. Bums has some awesome teachers, and they try very hard. Our students, by in large, are good students. We are from a county that has been hard hit by poverty (over 50%), but we do the best for our students that we can. Our county levy for schools has helped greatly in providing materials for our students. Would i send a student to bums? You bet I would!! We are a faculty and staff of caring people, concerned about our students. We work well on a professional level.
