    "I have an autistic child. Last summer, we fled/sold home solely because of horrible Laguna Beach School District - Top of the World Elementary School and CHOSE fabulous BMMS (after nationwide District/SELPA search/interviews) and dropped on them, a hard fought, comprehensive 58 page IEP. My child started BMMS at 3rd Grade level (math, lang, reading, writing). Well funded, hi scoring TOW, Laguna Beach SD failed my child since K, but BMMS prin, admin & staff were all up for & succeeded in this daunting challenge. This academic year...One thing has changed for my son, and that is EVERYTHING. Immense growth. Special & Gen. Ed. Teachers, staff are organized, genuine, caring, participatory, responsive & include parents. But, parents...at any school, you have to be your child's advocate, monitor closely, and be objective (any problem means you need to call meetings to fix it - until it's fixed). I have daily, weekly, monthly IEP hard data results-unbelievable improvement, academically, socially, emotionally, communicatively for my son. Parents, closely involve yourselves. Demand your child's inclusion & zero tolerance bullying. U must actively monitor & participate. Kudos to BMMS!"

    "We moved to this school 3 months into the school year and they wouldn't except my sons transfer grade. The teachers are out of control so is the office staff. One teacher let her ta get in my sons face yelling and the counselor was acting as if he was my child's father yelling too this school thinks it's okay to verbally abuse the students. We are a military family and my children have been to many schools but Bell mountain is the WORST!"

    "My son has been attending this school for this most recent year. I have NEVER been more shocked and appalled with a school as I have with this one. The bullying is rampant, the students run the classrooms, and the administration does absolutely NOTHING to fix any of these issues. After meeting with the VP and the Counselor (who handles "discipline") I was more upset than I was to begin with. The administration is a joke, and this is a horrible environment for middle school children. The students are so out of control in class that my son has lacked learning much of anything because more time is spent trying to control the kids who do not behave. I would not recommend that anyone move to Menifee if they have children because the education available is a joke. Do yourself a favor and move to Murrieta. There is no accountability for administration and the teachers get no assistance. It makes me sick to send my son to this school but there are no better options out here. I am meeting with the Superintendent but I am worried that this will not do anything either. I know MANY parents who have removed their children from this district altogether because of the problems."

    "My son has been attending this school for about 7 months now. I don't dislike the school, but don't find anything about it that screams "Wow"! I am turned off by the lack of follow through with school officials and their in ability to follow through with return calls and communication and the lack of activities available to students in/outside of school. One more year and hopefully we will able to get him into a better school district with more to offer students."
