Bernardo Heights Middle School Reviews
I think that Bernardo Heights Middle School is an excellent school and the perfect fit for my son. He went to a different elementary school last year and he really struggled. It constantly seemed confusing what he was supposed to be doing and then they gave so much homework that there was not time to study for tests. The homework also did not count towards their final grade. BHMS is completely different and better. My son went from having all Ds and Fs last year to all As and Bs this year. The homework is all straight forward and he always knows exactly what he is supposed to do. The teachers are very clear about what will be covered by the tests and they teach the information the kids need for the tests. The homework is also counted towards their final grade (like it should be). There is a lot of school spirit and activities for the kids and all of the kids, families and teachers seem happy.
