Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School Ratings & Reviews

January 26, 2016 Submitted by a parent
I appreciate the innovative thinking and planning that the thoughtful staff and leadership have made to the school.

I am a student at BDJMS. I am in the STEM program. Overall, the school is great. My STEM teachers are REALLY nice. There are a lot of opportunities for the STEM kids. However, the school needs some work. There are not a lot of electives. There should be things like Woodshop. The students are out of control. There is not a lot of discipline when people are being bullied. I also think that we should have more field trips and more oppertunities for the non STEM kids.For example only STEM students got to go to Rhode Island for the sail boat race. There also should be more pep rallies and fun activities for students. Also us students shouldn't have to pay to attend dances or get a yearbook. Overall BDJMS is a good school but if improvements were made, it would be worth five stars.

From the New London District plan, published in the 2012-2013 year. These numbers do not lie. There is a serious problem with the leadership ruining this once adequate school: High Staff Absenteeism & Turnover contributes to inconsistency of instruction. o 20% of teachers had more than 10 absences; 67% of teachers had 5 or more absences o 43% of the staff is new to the building since Jan. 2010. (22/51 teachers)

All locals gave this school bad reviews but unfortunately since its the only non-lottery middle school in New London, my child had to attend here. The staff (except for the secretary) are all rude. The principal and teachers and guidance counselor have no patience, training or compassion towards kids with learning disabilities. When I addressed a bullying issue to the guidance counselor, he just strongly suggested that my child was just depressed! Ask the locals, there is definitely a reason why everyone dreads having their child attend this school.

This school is volatile. The reputation of this sub-par school is well known in SouthEastern CT, which unfortunately discourages teachers from applying. New London had to host a special job fair in order to lure teachers in to this school. There has been such a massive exodus of teachers (and education-minded families) over the past three years, that the core of Bennie Dover is no longer recognizable. The music program, in particular, has floundered, having lost their excellent band director of a couple of years ago. While the administration spreads untruths about only incompetent teachers leaving, it is a fact that even the new, excellent teachers are leaving - some of them excellent, male role models. Police were finally brought in because of the dangerous atmosphere and that seems to have helped, but what kind of environment is that for kids to learn in? A rumor that the former vice-principal will return as principal from the high school in 2013-2014 (and the current principal finally demoted to a less challenging grammar school) give some hope to the return of competent leadership. One can only hope that the new Board of Ed, although mostly uneducated, can help.
