    "What a horrible school I this is my sons second year going to this school and they are only caring about money. The teachers are good, but they assign a LOT of homework. And the previous principal was so bad they had to replace her. The staff are very strict and don't seem to care about electives. For example, this year my Son finally got woodshop, but they removed it a couple of months later. I tried calling the school to see what the promblem was, but they didn't care! So my son spent the rest of the semester doing WORKSHEETS in his elective class. And the next semester they assigned him yearbook without even asking. Some amazing school this is. Parents Beware! Do yourself a favor and do NOT send you child to this school!"

    "I've had 2 boys go through this school for part of a school year and it's just incredible just how unorganized the office staff is. Registrar to teachers - enrollment process was a joke, confidence in their GATE program was non existent and teachers accountability in recording grades was poor. I felt I had to check and recheck everything everyday. My kid are both smart and in AP classes but it takes a good teacher to "teach"... 8Th graders should not have to glue stick notes etc. how does this prepare them for high school. This rating should be lower than a 7. So glad my boys were able to transfer out and my daughter will NOT attend this school."

    "I hope the teachers this year are better able to help the children with thier Ipads and I hope they keep thier websites concerning homework up to date. I was emailing a teacher last year, come to find out he never recieved an email because the email address on the school website was incorrect. Not one person figured that out until I brought it up towards the end of the year. BONITA MIDDLE SCHOOL NEEDS SOME MAJOR HELP WITH EVERYTHING!"

    "I am a student at this school, and it is a fun, awesome, and a good school. Most teachers here provide good education, as well as a fun learning enviorment. The new, updated technology is GREAT! (I prefer for adults to know that the students here do get IPads as a replacement for textbooks!). These IPads are great, but most kids all over the district are jailbreaking them. The school has a lot of electives such as Spanish, French, Band, Chorus, and the ASB. The ASB is similar to student council, and its oonly for 8th graders. The school leadership is good, and I wouldnt trade this school for any other! GO CRUSADERS!"

    "I give this school no stars at all. I currently have a 7th grader at this school and he has a 504. The 2nd half of the school year has started and the Counselor and the male AP still have not implemented my son's 504. Not one teacher knows he has a 504, so nothing has been implemented in the class room. It doesn't stop there...Since my son has learning disabilities the school has treated as a disruptive child and is just waiting for him to mess up again so they can expell him. This school is not compliant with the laws set in place to protect kids from falling through the cracks. Do not let the 5 star reviews convince that this school is worthy of your child, you would be better off throwing into a wolf pack and hope your child survives. I went to Bonita, so did my brother and my sister. Bonita used to be a good school, not anymore. It's even sad to look at, very run down, poor athletic fields. There are so many other "good" schools to choose from in the area"
