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.

I enjoy going to school. My senior year I'm ready to tackle college. Thanks to the teachers and administration all my questions are answered. North is full of diversity and I love that. North is a huge support system. I feel safe here and am proud to be a bulldog! Go Blue!
Overall it's a good cooperation but safety during the winter is questionable. Teachers aren't completely qualified for their positions, but they're in need of teachers and don't wish to quit offering courses. Lots of world languages in high schools, not so much in middle schools and none in elementary.
