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
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.
The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation is a great system, and there is a strong focus on individual education. The system has great academics, amazing teachers, a lot of diversity, cool clubs, and strong school culture.
