Well, bates is a great school! I'm a 8th grader about to graduate from it Class of 2011-2012 and as much as I hate going to school with a passion I LEARN A LOT THERE! Most of the students in 8th grade earn 4.0's easily and are more advanced then average schools(seriously what school gives algebra 1 and 2 ,a high school subject, to 8th graders let alone teaches everything a year early? For example 8th graders do high school work. I'll answer that. this one!) The electives are fun I take academic games, orchestra,Math Technology, and creative writing. The school can be disorderly at times (like any other school) but when you get down to it Bates is great school.
PS: Your child (if they get in) are going to hate the amount of homework that's given (I know I did!) ,on a good night I don't get done until 6!

By , a Parent on

The goal of an exceptional student program is to maximize the potential for gifted students to exceed expectations. The confinement of young great minds is timeless. Discipline belongs at home.

Reviewed on

I have visited the school on several occasions and I do not understand why the children are allowed to be so loud at dismissal with no guidance from any of the staff members. Children at this age should be taught respect and courtesy, and discipline before they reach the teenage. It is very wild for a person who is searching for a school to see. These children in middle school can still be taught before it is to late but I do not see a concern so here we go with another generation of undisciplined young children. We don't have to be there parents to ask them to practice discipline so they will know how to act as they go out into the world .

This school is good and allows us students to be free in someways but not all the time. The electives are fun to have and enjoy.
