10 Parent Reviews for Blue Heron Middle School

I went to BH for 7th and 8th grade, and I loved it. The teachers were very positive and engaged, and they were available to help you if you needed it. The classes were not too big - there were only about 20-25 kids in each class. Mrs. Manning (math), Mr. Oswald (social studies), Mrs. Shively (social ...  Read more

None of the reviews were writing by the principal, the new principal is diane. There is no such thing as saturday school, i am a student and this is my 3rd year. The school is really safe, only like 1 wrestling fight. The teachers actually care, and same w/ students, there is not really any bullying. ...  Read more

Actually, the school does things about bullying, i dont what you are talking about. I am a student here. It is not terriable at all. You learn about shakespeare (7) read the outsiders(8), science fair(5), learn about the government, memorize the preamble of the constitution, (8). Every year there is ...  Read more

Teachers are really good here. Look forward to this school. One bad thing, that's the fire drills.

I bet the prinicipal wrote all of these reviews. This school is absolutely horrible. They do absolutely nothing for your child, when it comes to bullying. The principal will tell your child to 'grow tougher skin', and the teachers focus more on punishing people than actually teaching them. ...  Read more

A very involved principal. Mark seems to have pulled the teachers, students, parents, and community together to work as one. The principal makes the difference in this school not the teachers or the extracurricular activities. Great job!

What a great find! With a new principal for the 2004-5 school year, Blue Heron Middle School is re-energized. As always, the teachers care greatly about their students and their subject areas. The new principal, with his warmth and openness, is working to make each child feel welcome. Blue Heron welcomes ...  Read more

The teachers at this school are very helpful to their students and do their best to keep your child caught up. But, when it comes to punishment they seem a bit harsh and work against themselves for example: if your child has less than a c grade in 1 or more classes and has missing assignments they will ...  Read more
