    I have two children both of whom attend or attended Bunger and I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Bunger. The teachers and staff at Bunger are some of the best around. They genuinely care about the students and foster an environment where the kids not only learn the educational materials but develop the other skills that give our kids what they need to succeed in today's world. It's clear Mr. Miehe the Principal loves what he does and the kids respond to that. Mr. Miehe teachers and staff provie an environment is safe and welcoming and as a parent that is comforting to know my kids are well looked after. Parental involvement is actively encouraged and welcomed. I highly recommend this school and the staff who all make it work so well. My children's education is a top priority to me and Bunger does not disappoint.

    the teachers here are not the best teachers alot of the 8th grade teachers dont help you at all.the kids talk back to the teachers cuss at the teachers and dont listen to the teachers and the teachers dont do nothing about it.classes are very loud. students are constentaly cussing at eachother. i DO NOT recomend any of your kids going there AT ALL.

    Bunger Middle School is agreat school! The teachers treat the students like they're family. There is Family Reading Night which alows the rest of the family to get involved with the childs academic. Even though 6th graders are not alowed to play in sports they let them do public swimming and Echoes.I would reccomend Bunger to anyone.

    This school was a very good school before the Logan students came. Principal Gunderson did a better job at keeping the school in order. Last year ther where 3 fights in the seventh grade alone. this year there has been too many to count. the school has made a mistake at allowing the students to come from logan. To quote all suburbanites 'There goes the neighborhood.'
