  • this school is depressing. i don't like it at all. i think it's way too big for as few teachers as it has. i would recommend another school in the area. Cedar ridge is GREAT. i love that school. it is small and everybody is so nice.

  • I am a mother and my fears for my child to attend Batesville schools is bulling.. We had that problem in Middle school and it's more of a concern for me now that my child will attend junior high.I believe that all schools should take more concern and deal more with bullies.. It seems that the children that are the victims of bulling they need more protection and the schools should take more action toward this on going fact. My child was harrassed and even hit and NOTHING was done until he protected himself then he was the blame .. That isn't right!!! I worry for my child and I know he needs a education but if I could I would pull him out of public school altogether. It isn't fair for any child to have to fear and dread going to school because bullies lurk the halls and threaten or harrass them..
