Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation Reviews

As someone who has been in BCSC their entire student career, I have many seen things that I would like to change. I have experienced the absence of parental guidance throughout the entire corporation. I also have noted a lack of staff members. Although parents have been distant, it has taught many of the students within the system to become independent and fulfill the role of their parents. As for the lack of staff members, this has only had a negative affect on the students. In some classes, I have spent 15 minutes waiting for a teacher to show up because the school office had to find a teacher who was in their prep period because we couldn't have a substitute for the day because of the shortage. Overall I think BCSC is doing its best to offer a high end educational experience.
Review Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation
I liked how up to date the whole corporation was and how the teachers really knew what they were doing and how to teach what is needed to succeed in life. They did not just focus on book smarts but also life lessons and how to succeed in college and after. Going through the whole system gave me a really good idea of what the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation is about and it is all about the students and keeping a safe and healthy learning environment for all. I always felt accepted by the students and loved having discussions with people from many different backgrounds and ideas. I flourished in BCSC and almost everyone does. That's why they have some of the best test scores in Indiana.
It was fine, i went to the magnet school which helped me make better relationships with the faculty. During my time the superintendent was not the best and honestly was ready to retire. The academics were good and sports were decently strong. Not many clubs however, there were some options.
