A lot of great changes happening at Bartow Middle School. Nice parent and student events, staff and teachers that are helpful and care about my child succeeding. They have a great music program, agriculture, and pre-med classes. I am encouraged that our future students have a nice school to go to.

no one would ever shut up long enough for the teachers to teach and most of the teacher stopped caring and there was so much swearing and fighting as well as smoking it was terrible.

THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE. IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE ...DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. I HAVE NOT HAD EVEN ONE GOOD EXPERIENCE SINCE MY CHILD HAS ATTENDED THIS 'SCHOOL'...IT IS BAD FROM THE PRINCIPAL TO THE STUDENTS. HOW CAN SUCH A PLACE AND 'PEOPLE' EXIST?
