  • This is the WORST school ever, (...) is the WORST dean the school could have gotten.

  • Buddy Taylor state test proficiency is a C. Something is wrong. If they stop worrying about ridiculous things and start really teaching and hiring teachers who are good, then they would have a better mark.

  • I agree, I think that BTMS is awful. The principal could care less about what goes on, the teacher's well lets just say - terrible. I have had a teacher actually put their hands on my child this year. They worry to much about cell phone use, what the kids are wearing, if earrings are to big, ridiculous things like that. They treat their student's as if they were criminals and not like people. This state and school system needs help. I never heard of a student not being able to use their cell phone after school on the bus to call their parent. What happens if their was an emergency? They don't care. They also will take a phone away if they just see it out on the bus, well is the bus driver going to pay for that 300.00 phone or is the school when they break it? I think that the mothers of Flagler county should set up some kind of meeting and let our concerns be heard and lets see if we could make a difference. Teachers forget that we are still the parents - they do not have a right to tell our children anything they like. That is the parent's job. The job of a teacher is to teach them academics, that's all - everything else is the parents job.

  • I think this is one of the worst schools that I could go to. I think that teachers do not give students the attention that they need and deserve. The (...)also doesn't care and isn't as involved with the school as she should be. Most of the teachers dont really care also, about 2 out of every 6 teachers really care about doing their job right. Also our school is one of the lowest ranking in Flagler County. There are hardly any extra curricular activities or sports to play. Safety is also an issue, there are A LOT of fights, AT LEAST 1 to 3 EACH DAY. Like I said I wouldn't recommend going to this school if you care about your child's education.
