-A student.I went to this school last year and it was horrible now I was in normal classes and how it worked was they just gave us the material. They didn't try to form to my type of learning. Also the guidance counselor was very rude and unfair. I was bullied and I was crying and she yelled at me not to cry. I do get emotional semi-easily but these kids tripped me kicked me on dirt ground out side and got 2days of detention. However I got 3 weeks of suspension for making a white lined paper sci-fi gun. Now I don't know why BMS has such a low rating. My grades went from Ds and Cs to all As and Bs because these teachers in BMS know how to help kids properly and learn there style of learning. I just felt I had to get this out there for any parents wondering about a students point of view.
The staff at the school are great from the Principal to the teachers and student teachers. They have been supportive of my children, challenged them as much as they could, and praised them for work well done. It is a really caring environment. The only reason that I do not give a "great" review is no fault of the school, but rather of the district. The school infrastructure is worn out and needs help and the materials and non-curriculum arts and language programs are not given enough funding. This is true throughout the township. But Mrs. Todaro and her staff do their absolute best with what the BOE and State give them.
Worst school to send a child to with special needs. They have no interest in whats best for the child, just the best way to sweep them under the rug with the hope they don't have to deal with your kid.
Absolute terrible school if your child needs an IEP. They do not care about your child, just how much it's going to cost the BOE. Demarest is the least equipt school to handle children with any special needs.
