    "My student was stuck in a one room class as an experiment that they say prevents divorce later in life. My non-religious student was preached to by the teacher about how god wants him to do his homework. We were hassled about his number of absences when he was battling a serious health condition. I feel I was not treated fairly since he was a transfer student from the other side of town. Glad these people are not part of our lives any longer...."

    "Bear Valley MIddle School is not a bad school. I am tired of people saying that it is. All of my friends are here, and I love life with my friends. Poway is not teaching harder stuff, everyone just thinks they do, so they give them more money, for GATE program, and no one gives BVMS money donations."

    "Before you consider this school for your children PLEASE think twice. I removed my child from this school in the middle of this year because of very poor leadership at the school, and at the district administration level. My child was bullied by students and the staff. The staff was never held accountable for any of their actions for fear that it would make the school look bad. They failed to teach my child, and just pushed her through the curriculum without any help, or accepting any responsibily for my childs academic struggles. It was always my childs or her parents responsibility. I wish I could truly explain just how bad the school, and the district is, but this site will not allow it. Not all to the teachers are bad, some are great. My child is now in an enviornment that is caring, not degrading, and is flourishing academically, and emotionally. I just regret not pulling her from the district years ago."

    "I thought initially Bear Valley was a good school. After attending for 2 years now, I am disgusted. My son regularly tells me that the teachers don't care, just want a paycheck, and don't help the kids. I've had multiple problems with teacher misbehavior, and admin only covers up for the misconduct of staff. Tenured government teachers cannot be fired. My son was very bored and unchallenged. But that is ok, because they lost our business. We got into a great charter school and the teachers are 1000% more effective. Good riddance Bear Valley and public government schools. I hope the teachers with fact salaries, great benefits and 4 months of annual vacation enjoy it, they are doing a horrible job from what they taught my kid. My son loves science and art. Both His and Art teachers at Bernardo discouraged him with their by the numbers teaching. You could hire a circus monkey or robot and save big to do the job of public school teachers who won't take questions and won't give positive feedback to kids. The Blob is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced."
