Bayou View Middle School Reviews
Dedicated teachers have worked through the changes that have placed more emphasis than ever before on teaching every student. As a result, students have continued to thrive and flourish. We also have a dedicated group of parents who are keeping our PTA on the move and making fantastic contributions to our school and programs. I am very thankful to be both a parent and educator in the Gulfport School District.
BVMS is changing the way students learn! You want 21st Century skills? This is the place to be!
BVMS is wonderful! Students are getting prepared for the future!
This is a great school that supports the community and parent involvement. They are preparing for college and career skills necessary for adulthood.
I believe this school is amazing! I think it is helping our students become forward thinkers and giving them the skills to be ready to learn college level skills before they even graduate.
Gulfport is a great place to work and learn! As one of three original Excellence For All pilot districts, we have lead the way in Common Core implementation in the state. Out-of-state parents have lamented about the rigor of our curriculum noting that their children are being challenged to become conceptual learners and critical thinkers. This is also a testament that the district holds everyone to high expectations. As a parent, Gulfport School District (GSD) was and is an easy choice. Thanks to the teachers counselors, and administration, two of my sons earned about $60,000.00 in academic, leadership, and band scholarships. The third and youngest son has requested to stay because he loves the school, its robotics program, and band. What more could a parent expect? I recommend GSD as THE education destination on the Gulf Coast.

I love teaching at BVMS and hope to stay until retirement because I'm surrounded by colleagues who truly care about kids. The parents of our students are supportive and involved -- a key ingredient of a great school. Our “wildly important goal” of BVMS is to inspire students to become globally competitive independent learners and problem solvers in an atmosphere that is caring and compassionate, and we intend to do all that we can to make this goal a reality for our students.
BVMS Teachers hold their students to a high standard of behavior and academic performance.

CAFE MANAGEMENT IS ALWAYS PROFESSIONAL. FOOD IS ALWAYS HOT AND DELICIOUS! CAFETERIA STAFF IS FRIENDLY, COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL.
My son attended Bayou View Middle School and received an excellent education. The teachers challenged him to do his best, but were willing to help him if he did not understand something in class. As a gifted student, it was important for him to be challenged, and BVMS was just that, a place to challenge his mind and make him think!
My daughter attends Bayou View Middle School and loves it! BVMS challenges her while maintaining a caring and compassionate atmosphere. The lessons and projects that she is assigned, offer a wide range of learning styles and are preparing her to become a lifelong problem solver!!
This is a fantastic school! The teachers and administrators are the best around!! Your child(ren) will get a great education here:)
Bayou View Middle is an outstanding school. The children are encouraged from the very beginning and are prepared to enter high school at the designated time.
