    "horribly scary. We moved to PG county an good recommendations. Not true. I think the teachers along with a few of the admins are scared of the bullies. All the school needs is people that are there for the kids, not a paycheck! Big difference. Be strict across the board not based upon color or monetary status. I cannot wait to get my kids out of this school.."

    "Tasker is a good school, the only reason some parents dont like Tasker because their kids get "mixed in with the wrong crowd".And that's going to happen in life what so ever, I'm a student at Tasker, and I have been at Tasker since day one in 6th grade now I'm in 8th grade and I'm going to stay at Tasker until the stepping up ceremony. Tasker gives you a good education, or they try when the students are turnt down and actually want to learn. But Tasker also gives you fun things after school such as clubs, now teams, skate zone nights, and dances. I like Tasker, and even though things have changed since i was in 6th grade, I have made alot of new friends, memories, and I have learned life lessons. I woudnt trade my tasker experience for anything. And yes I AM A STUDENT! If your choosing between Tasker or Ogle CHOOSE TASKER!"

    "I go to Benjamin Tasker Middle School and am currently an 8th grader here. Back when Tasker first opened in the 70's it was an amazing school that everyone wanted their child to go to. I have read a lot about new management in the school and how it is changing for the better, but honestly it's not. The staff here doesn't care what you have to say. The new principal honestly does want to make a much needed difference here but it just isn't working. I don't know if it's the area that we live in where the students aren't the best and really don't care about learning or if it is the schools problem. Also, I've heard about the problems with teachers, and while I do agree that they exist, I as an honor student was not very affected by these things. Nonetheless I know I could be getting a much better education elsewhere (meaning in another area). With all of this said I am very happy to be getting out of Tasker at the end of my 8th grade year."

    "I am a student of BTMS I'm going to the 8th Grade 2013-2014 my school has had too much going on for this to even be a school we police at our lunch we have police walk around our school there was even a fight that got my friend arrested in the 6 grade that he didn't even start I think the new principle tries to make the school better but really it got WORSE I don't like the school at all only for my friends buh the teachers curse there rude and don't know how to handle their classes yeah the students have problems but I think it's what the teachers do and the students give back to the teachers as a response I've even looked at other schools they all have the same problems"
