The Bement School Reviews

I attended Bement throughout middle school. It was an odd & unsettling place to attend school. There were some things I didn't agree with when I was there, & some things that I realized were wrong & inappropriate now that I am an adult going to college.

Bement is not a place where kids grow, it is a place where they get uncomfortably watched over and babied. There are rules that are beyond safety measures, and are controlling. Bement has a problem with sexualizing children. I was once playing tag with a boarder of the opposite gender and ran in a room without thinking. I quickly ran out, but we were both given huge punishments for being in the room together for less than 10 seconds. They implied we were being punished because we could have been doing something wrong or sexual. We were at most 12 years old. Bement sexualized two 12 year old children playing tag.

There are many things wrong that they refuse to change. That was one example. It's prison-like.
