I chose Bigelow Middle School based on reputation. I believe it no longer lives up to it. The standards were shockingly low the principal leadership uninvolved the teacher's aides poor and the teachers barely able to maintain discipline in the classroom. My daughter felt unsafe at times and no matter how much challenge work she asked for - it was given in a half-hearted way. The majority of the students were focused only on the social aspects and the school rarely demanded that they be otherwise.
