Bussey Middle School Reviews

It taught me several lessons over the real world. It truly was helpful, however, some student's attitude was a bit worrisome, which slightly affected the whole school overall. I wouldn't say they were "bad kids," I would just say that they need more motivation through motivational speakers, one-on-one classroom talk, Socratic Seminars, etc.The best quality of this school would, of course, be the amazing faculty and teachers. EVERY single one of those amazing people care for you and empathize for you. They truly are beautiful human beings. Through thick and thin, they WILL help you! It might not have a perfect educational system like "Austin Academy," or "Brandenburg Middle School," but I DO know that the things they teach you here will be far better than that. I recommend this school for your child if you want your child to learn life lessons, life lessons that won't be taught in any other middle school.

Bussey Middle School does everything they can to keep the school safe. I would always see random drug dog sweeps, especially! The school nurse, Nurse Sharon Clausing is really dedicated and easygoing. She really cares for the well-being of the students and faculty. She is also an amazing mother who cares for her family. Minor bullying IS an issue in this school, but I would say it's something that is all over the real world. It prepares students to fight for themselves, and stand up for what they believe in. If it IS a serious case of bullying, however, the student will be severely punished with IBS.
There's a lot of clubs and organizations to enter. The list is quite long, but I can assure you there's something for everyone, there really is. Athletics and AVID were the most popular due to the consistency of it. Join as many clubs as you can and have fun, there's a club for pretty much everything. The list of clubs also keeps growing. I recently heard that they are going to have a martial arts club, how cool is that?!
