Bates Middle Ratings & Reviews
I’ve been a student at this school it was really terrible,to much fights and drama. When bullies mess with people and the people who are getting bullied don’t get defended for it. Kids are really mean and are bad
Bates is great! It is a STEAM Project Based Learning school. The teachers work very hard to provide excellent learning opportunities to students. There are very few to no discipline issues. Any issues that do arise are taken care of immediately and fairly by the administration.
This is an unsafe and unproductive school. It is ranked 243 of 259 middle schools in SC. Avoid if possible.
My first experience with BMS was the 2013-2014 school year. We moved here by means of the military. The first six months were a bit hard, but once I got more involved and expressed my thoughts concerning my children at the school, I saw a difference and felt more comfortable with my children being here. Most of the teachers who I have felt with have a great parent teacher working relationship when problems or concerns come up. This school does so many fun activities with the students. They welcome and encourage parent involvement! There is so much I could say. This will be our last school year with them.
My son has been at Bates Middle School for 6th and 7th grade and we are now entering 8th grade. With this experience I think overall the academic teaching capabilities of the teachers is unsatisfactory. The class size at this school us too larger to reach individual students and the teachers don't seem to care to make contact with students anyway. I'm not sure what the exact problem is at this school, but everyone should stay away from BMS if at all possible. You will be disappointed if you send your child here!
