    Horrible school nurse. My child has asthma. The school nurse tells me that my child is fine without any asthma symptoms. That is because my child has asymptomatic asthma. I'm a nurse myself with over 20 years experience. Who is she to tell my child that her lungs aren't hurting and refuse to call me? If I could give this school less than one star I would. Needs better trained nursing staff and much friendlier office staff

    BMS has either great teachers or poor teachers. The most upsetting is the day after TCAPs are completed w/3 weeks of school year. Students have play time the remainder of the school year. Too many teachers are there for a pay ck & don't have the students best interest @ hand. Good student athletes are among the minority & between that & maybe 2 qualified coaches kids suffer. I feel a complete top to bottom student/parent evaluation of the staff starting with the Vice Principle down is needed. I was one of many that was very excited in the event we may get to move our kids to Holston next year. BMS is drowning with the "good ole boy/girl" syndrome instead of doing what is best for these bright students & athletes.. Parents who scream the loudest & rudest are the ones heard. The last three weeks of school should be focused on the students next level of education. I would love to see the AD get full control of the school from top to bottom even if it means making him Principal & AD. He is the type of person I want my children to be with 7 hours a day. I am hearing when my kids go to central more of the same if not worse yet we still debate on why many kids are choosing other schools
