Excellent. These teachers work really hard and provide good content. Family support in valuing education is a crucial component.

The teachers are accepting of everyone and they teach very well, our are also counselors are very helpful. Teachers and staff always step in if there are fights or if someone is being bullied. There are many enjoyable clubs and electives here. I love this school, its better than the others I've gone too.

I think that overall this school is ok because the amount of homework that is given is way too much

My son only went to BVM for one year and I have to say, I agree with all other parents regarding homework. There are a couple of teachers that do little to none, but man History and English have been rough, sadly my son hates history and don't get me started on the lack of ability to get their grades inputted into the system. I've pushed my son to take more responsibility for himself. Middle school is a rough couple of years and I also don't feel that the counselors are professional in the way the communicate with children and parents. Hard to find a happy medium, middle school in general isn't known to be the best couple of years.

This school is not unlike other sweetwater schools. I am not sure why there is so much homework. It is excessive and unnecessary. It becomes the parent's homework because kids this age cannot manage on their own. That is my biggest concern and complaint. It looks like a lot of unproductive busy work. My child does homework every day including all day Saturday and Sunday. As a parent I am trying to get homework to a minimum for my child. So far I have been unsuccessful because despite a 504 plan, there have been no modifications. Looking at other options like charter or private. How did we as a society get to the place where no one speaks up and challenges what is just plain wrong. I had to laugh. A teacher commented on why my child's reading log was empty of any reading of books for 2 quarters. Well maybe if the the students were not given so much homework they would have time to read. As it is now the entire educational system is killing my child's desire and joy of learning. Really? An entire generation of kids hate school and learning and we as adults just go along with this and accept it. Sad.
