    I am a current seventh grader at BSMS and I do not enjoy this school. I moved from Pennsylvania to this school which was a big culture shock to me. People didnt welcome me kindly! Also the curriculum isn't good! I am learning everything that I learned last year again! I am in honor classes and the education is still very slow. Some of the teachers are good at what they do but many don't know what they are doing! I wouldn't recommend this school! There are so many fights at this school and many other things go on that shouldn't be happening in middle school! I get bullied constantly and the teachers/staff don't do anything about it!

    The school's participation with Teacherease is a great tool for comminicating with your child's teachers tracking assignments grades and more. In my experiences with all of the disctrict 2 schools my children have attended were better than district 1 where my oldest son along with my siblings and I graduated from. The district 2 schools have quite a diverse student body lots of extra- curricular activities and clubs for the students along with the honors and gifted/talented and beta club activities to provide outstanding oppurtunities for the gifted students. The schools are big enough to be able to offer many oppurtunites for our children but not too big that the kids still get individualized attention and don't get 'lost' in the system. I am a proud parent of disctrict 2 honors students! Thank you

    My son attends this school and like many of the parents the kids just don't have much to get excited about. When I went to school we would have dances pep rallies and things like that. I went to school with my son one day and I can't believe they can actually get charged with sexual harrasment just for hugging each other. I that is so stupid. My son doesn't even know what that means. Another thing I don't like is that it takes so long for you to find out that your child has gotten into trouble. Last year every time my son did something I wouldn't find out until two weeks later. I was always told that they had to investigate it first. Why does it take two weeks to investigate something? I hope it get better this year!

    It's a pretty good school aside from the occasional (more like weekly) fights. The curriculum is awesome for every student and since the school recently formulated a rule that no student can be exempted from exams the learning has improved! Teachers are cracking down on us! There is no fun at this school. No assemblies. No pep rallies. The teachers are all very strict. So the school isn't very enjoyable at all. The only fun you have is if you go to the football games. Blah blah. I don't know how they expect us to have fun. They wonder why everyone hates each other and gets in fights. (There aren't many Einsteins in Boiling Springs.)

    I used to go to this school and my son has been complaigning there aren't as much of afterschool activities there are in our old neigborhood. He also complaigns that the teachers are mean and there are quite a few bullies in the school that frequiently bully the other and younger 6th and 7th graders.

    My daughter enjoys BSJH because of all of her friends and she is well-liked. But many things dissapoint my daughter!!! She said that they 'Treat us like were 5 years old!!' I hear that same sentence everyday! And as these kids are growing young adults...they should have more freedom! They also have no Pep Rally's or anything fun. When I was in school that was one of my favorite times!!! Please consider these things I have listed! sincerely me

    Mrs. Sutherland is a great teacher she taught my daughter Kim and she got along good with the kids and the other teachers and she was a real sweet teacher and now that we've moved to Idaho Kim really misses Mrs. Sutherland and says that none of her teachers are that nice or cool! So whatever Mrs. Sutherland does she just needs to keep it up and keep doing a good job.
