    It was Ok. Teachers are good. In 7th grade I had one or two that weren't that great and kinda mean 8th grade was fine. Extracurricular activities were great (I loved Science Olympiad). However in all seriousness BMS and the district as a whole don't need to put in my that much effort in to be such good schools. The districts population is made-up of middle upper-middle and even quite a bit of downright wealthy families who can get their kids to love learning. The school district's impoverished special ed and limited English proficient student populations are all quite low so the school doesn't have as much students that can hinder academic standings as most other do. The actual student population of the school was the worst Jersey Shore wanna-bes and many self-centered athletes that were afraid of other cultures and could be quite snobby. This school. teacherwise was great but I'm glad I moved to a new district that actually has a little cultural diversity which BMS and the rest of the district really needs. Believe me the '12 MHS val was very very one-of-a-kind. But hopefully there will be more pequans like her in the future. I attended this school from 2009 to 2011

    A great place to send your kids without a doubt. As a teacher Massapequa is a district that is notorious for hiring based on "who you know". The teachers are very good but it is tough if one is not one of the administration's "favorites". The administrators at BMS are not very effective at all. The Dean's office by comparison is exceptional. The staff is very hard working dedicated to helping both student and teacher to solve problems.

    Berner Middle School was a great experience for my daughter. Our only regret is that she moves on to Ames. Teachers and Adminstration were outstanding. Very thing a parent could hope for.

    We moved here from NYC two years ago and I must say that Alfred Berner M.S. is everything I hoped it would be and more. My son is thriving here. There is not comparison to the school he would have went to in Brooklyn.
