    "The new principal & assistant principal run a tight ship & are very professional & courteous. The school is still under renovation (a few yrs to complete in phases) - so glad to see the old made like new! My son loves this school. Caring teachers & great kids. I love the 'no bullying' policy."

    "I have just finished my three years at this school. I hated it. The dress code was enforced so ridiculously (with made up rules to boot). I did like most of my teachers, so that was fine. I don't think that money has ever been spent wisely in the case of BFMS. There were literally tiles falling off of the ceiling but at least we had new doors :) They also had not been using the bell system the first 2 and a quarter years I had been there, and then they sprung it on us out of no where. We supposedly had 4 minutes between classes, but it was really more like a minute and a half. Not only that, but the changing times of when school began and ended was ridiculous, Excuse you, but I'd rather not leave at 3:30, when the high schools and elementary schools get out 45 minutes earlier than us. Another thing I did not like at all was no study hall this past year, and only a half hour after school. That left next to no time to see teachers for help. If you're trying to help your students succeed, act like it for once."
