I've been really happy with Bigelow. It is the smallest middle school in Newton and I think that has helped my child. My son is in 7th grade and has flourished here. I've met many of the teachers through meetings and volunteer activities and have been impressed.

Great school, with lots of sport and after hours program choices.

The teachers at Bigelow are terrific. The school administration is poor, worse than anything I have ever experienced. Unless your child is Harvard bound and has no learning disabilities, this is NOT the school for your child. It was a great mistake to send out child here.

I was observing friendly non-competitive environment with low academic emphasys in 6th and 7th grade but were not really disappointed until learned of application of pre-recorded lectures outside of class in Social studies 8th grade. Concept of reverse classroom might work for other subjects, but I'd think history is one place where live teacher's presentation really matters.

The below parent must have a kid in 6th grade! I continue to be VERY DISAPPOINTED with BIGELOW. I wonder what this oarent will think next year and the year after. My kid is through Bigelow and I have to say that he wasn't well prepared for HS. Teachers don't understand kids that learn differently and academic support is homework club. There is no real skill development. Teachers beside the 6th grade teachers don't get or seem to like kids that learn differently. My experience has been very disappointing at Bigelow.
