    Bemidji Middle School is by far the BEST school in Bemidji. People think it's a bad school they are LYING! It is a wonderful school and from my experience and information Bemidji middle school has no violence and never has for a LONG time. If i could pick between a private school and a public school because public school can not charge tuition but private schools do. So if you are wondering if your child should go to a private or public school my suggestion is a public school.

    BMS is a good school. It gets a bad wrap in the city. I have had all good experiences with BMS and its great teachers. People only talk around the city about bad events. I have only good things happen at this school and I love that Bemidji has a great school system.
