21 Parent Reviews for Bear Valley Middle School

We were new to this district so this was our first year at Bear Valley, and after reading some of the reviews I was a bit nervous that we would have a bad experience. But fortunately that was not the case, and me and my child both love the school and staff! They have an awesome robotics team that has ...  Read more

This a terrible school. I am currently an 8th grader, and you have no idea how relieved I am to get out of here. It has been three years of pure torture and it feels like it never ends. More than half of the school is failing all of their classes, and when teachers say they care, they don't. There is ...  Read more

My student was stuck in a one room class as an experiment that they say prevents divorce later in life. My non-religious student was preached to by the teacher about how god wants him to do his homework. We were hassled about his number of absences when he was battling a serious health condition. ...  Read more

Bear Valley MIddle School is not a bad school. I am tired of people saying that it is. All of my friends are here, and I love life with my friends. Poway is not teaching harder stuff, everyone just thinks they do, so they give them more money, for GATE program, and no one gives BVMS money donations.

My son regularly tells me that the teachers don't care, just want a paycheck, and don't help the kids. I've had multiple problems with teacher misbehavior, and admin only covers up for the misconduct ...  Read more

Best thing about the school: Band teacher is excellent. Worst thing about the school: everything else. My son was GATE, the instruction was so terrible that I removed him from school half way through 6th grade and home schooled him. The biggest problem with Escondido public schools is that they are browning. ...  Read more

Fairly nice school, great band teacher, my child is mostly happy but it feels like there is an anti Juniper snobbery thing going on. My child came from Juniper and is one of only two Juniper students allowed in the GATE/pre-algebra math class. When parents volunteered to help in the class to help kids ...  Read more

What the other reviewers said about petty infractions is true. They give infractions for crossing some yellow line at school. Or not following the smallest class room rules. Also my child keeps telling me some of the teachers don't care about the kids and are just teaching for the money. And they ...  Read more

My son was an excellent student and well behaved in sixth grade. In seventh he racked up 27 infractions which i never was informed about until he was facing expulsion. I had noticed some problems with him and schoolwork and asked the counselor to talk to him but they never mentioned the sudden behavior ...  Read more
