  • This school has done GREAT with my child, she has moved on to High School but she still admires this school and will visit her old teachers at any chance she gets. The gym is beautiful and I love the overall vibe of this school.

  • Bookcliff is by far the best Middle School in District 51. BMS has neverending school spirit, an amazing mascot (GO MUSTANGS)I adore the dedication of all of our teachers, and the Gym is HUGE! I suggest that if you aare torn between middle schools CHOOSE BMS! IT'S THE BEST!
