Office staff seems nice enough..some teachers are okay..but too many kids, too few teachers..I agree about the element here. The bullying does seem to be an issue and most of the teachers seem like drones. They really do not seem to care about the kids who actually need help. Just wanna get through another ...  Read more

My child has gone to BHMS for the past three years. The first year there was 3-4 hrs of nightly homework with many projects. In 7th and 8th grade, there has been very little homework.

My daughter graduated from BHMS in 2012. She had a wonderful experience. However, my son finished 6th grade at BHMS in 2012, then we moved to another school. His first year was vastly different.

My 6th ...  Read more

I really feel that this school is top notch. Most of the teachers and the leadership take teaching our children seriously and are good about keeping in contact with emails, and automated phone messages. There was a problem with bullying last year, however when brought to the principal's attention, it ...  Read more

My daughter is just completing her first year here (6th grade) and she loves it. Her grades have improved, she is involved in choir (great teacher!) and is thriving in every way. The school has a great 'after school' program as well.

Bernardo Heights Middle School
Poway Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
