Bastrop Middle School is one of the worst schools I have ever attended. The teachers here are absolutely terrible, they yell at the students for unnecessary reasons and some teachers will take up your phone or electronic device just because it falls out of your pocket. Some teachers are actually really

One of the principals raced my friend and I to class even though all we were doing was going to was our lockers and she gave us detention for being late to class even though we were already in class and the teacher let us go to our lockers. She made anybody else go to detention who was still in the hallways except one girl, which was totally unfair because the rest of us were late and so was she. The number of students in each class is uneven. Some classes have only 10 students while others have 35 and it gets over crowded in the classroom. Even though our education is not very good, except a few handful of students, our extra curricular classes and great and are highly awarded for their greatness. Read less

It says a lot of the school when a permanent police car is part of your aesthetics. Communication with a smile and welcoming gestures goes a long way. The office staff need to take sensitivity training. If you want people to join PTA and be actively involved with your school, present a welcoming campus.
... Read more The district has created an evironment where teachers are unable to connect on a personal level with students or parents? Mostly, the teachers are overloaded. They are expected to do mountains of paperwork, email, grading, and be at the top of their game. Where are teacher aides? The district has taken the love out of teaching for most. Parents need to be involved with their child's education. My generation was expected to go to school for an education. We were responsible for low grades, not the teacher.

This School does not satisfy me at all. I am and 8th grader and can't wait to leave for high school! There's a reason we made academically unacceptable last year.

Bastrop Middle School needs to implement a sensitivity program for some of their staff. Overall, there are some really great teachers in this school. Unfortunately, there are a few not so great teachers can have a huge impact for the negative for some of the students. What I have seen in these couple
... Read more of years is lack of the ability to speak to parents and students in a respectful tone. I am appalled at the unnecessary aggressive undertones that or used. I am also unhappy with the fact that administration in this school, seems to go out of their way to make parents feel unwelcome in the school. It makes me wonder, 'What do they not want us to see?' They don't seem to understand that parental involvement is most important when the child/children goes into middle and high school. Read less
