    We moved to the West Bend School District 2years ago I was nervous about sending my kids to such a HUGE school compared to where they went prior and I can not say a bad word about Badger. The teachers are great! The principal is wonderful the teachers are very involved with the students and really care about them. I think Badger Middle School is a wonderful place they also challenge my kids and have advance classes they can take. GREAT GREAT GREAT!

    I'm very happy with Badger Middle School. I think the teachers are very knowledgeable they challenge the children academically and they are caring and understand the difficulties middle school children face. The principal is outstanding and is always available to answer questions and is willing to help your child be as successful as possible. I highly recommend this school!

    I moved my children from private school to Badger Middle School and couldn't be happier about the decision. Ironically I found the faculty and administration much more caring and enthusiastic than at the the private school. Quality teaching all around on all levels! My children are now happy successful and self-confident.
