Mary McLeod Bethune Middle School Reviews

1 review
I believe that Bethune Middle School has the potential to become a great school. When I was first enrolled here, the school announced its newest principal, Mr. Broome. He has definitely had a positive impact on the school. He has definitely decreased the amount of fights, and not only that, but he takes time to get to know his students. Bethune has a lot of great staff. These teachers care, and they are more than willing to help you when you need it- personally or academically. On the other hand, I believe that there are some issues with leaking. I think there are pipes loose somewhere; water is leaking in the ceiling and turning it brown. It gives off a dirty appearance and discourages students to want to come on a daily basis.
