    "I went to BSMS for 3 years. Overall it's a great school. Highlights include Launching Pad, the amazing theater program and the 8th grade field trip to Washington DC. Most of the staff is great. The nurse is not very nice and the deans enforcement of the dress code is not always fair. They are very good handling problems that come up like bullying. I got a good education here."

    "Administration is horrible. Some teachers were okay, others not. Bullying is a HUGE problem here and all you get is lip service from the administration. Oh, and don't air your grievances at school board meetings - it is definitely remembered and used against you."

    "I love Ballston Spa Middle School because my grandson goes there. The teachers and entire staff are friendly, helpful, and do whatever it takes to help a child, not only in furthering his education, but furthering his development as a person."

    "Two children attending. Elementray was great but Middle School not so great. It's ALL about NYS tests, rush everything. Some teachers, but not all, clearly care more about presenting material than whether or not anyone gets it. Bullys not dealt with despite the rhetoric you hear. Overall o.k. with good after school programs."
